Good Hotel Guide Review

With the Norfolk countryside stretching away on all sides, Tim and Janie Elwes’s ivy-covered Georgian inn enjoys ‘a beautifully rural setting’. The Elweses have refurbished the farmhouse (designed in 1806 to mimic a Tuscan farmhouse) from top to bottom, following water damage from winter deluges. The result is as cosy as ever. Bright public spaces have a zingy, contemporary feel; wood-burners keep the place homely. The bedrooms are cheery, with splashes of colour amid simple, country furnishings. In the restaurant, Norfolk plates include local North Sea mussels, Brancaster smoked salmon, Cromer crab. The comfy first-floor sitting area has piles of books and maps about the area, perfect for planning jaunts to the Broads or the nearby coast.
