Good Hotel Guide Review
Anyone braving the climb to the top of Julian and Carolyn Godlee’s characterful B&B and restaurant is well rewarded. Accessed by a ladder, the top-floor Wheel Room yields breathtaking views over salt marsh and sea, which peel away from the 19th-century grinding mill on the north Norfolk coast. Other rooms, decorated in muted hues, overlook the reed beds or the charming village, from the former store rooms and outbuildings. Eaten communally, a daily-changing set supper menu showcases Norfolk produce (Cromer crab; Norfolk lamb), and can be tailored with advance notice to suit special diets. Binoculars, field guides and regular events at the next-door bird sanctuary are perfect for twitchers.
