Good Hotel Guide Review
A sweeping remodel, by Jeanne Whittome, of her Victorian villa B&B has brought welcome flights of fancy to this patch of north Norfolk. Arrive to an afternoon cream tea in the cosy sitting room or on the lawn; later, settle in to one of the sophisticated bedrooms decorated in coastal whites and greys. Each has a large bed, seating and a dressing table; tea, Fairtrade cafetière coffee and biscuits; a drench shower, robes and a bathtub in the bathroom. Longing for the sea? Ask for the room with a balcony whose vista stretches towards the water. Take breakfast in bed with bagels or croissants, or eat in the bright, south-facing dining room; there are freshly baked breads and pastries, home-made granola and jams, all sourced from the hostess’s deli in Thornham, the neighbouring village. B&B guests receive discounts at the deli. Sitting room, dining room. Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV (Freeview). No background music. Garden. Children (cot, high chair; extra bed £30) and dogs (not in dining room) welcomed. Parking. 5 bedrooms (1, ‘disabled friendly’, on ground floor with courtyard; plus 2 suites above the deli in Thornham (10 mins’ drive). Per room B&B from £85.
