We were delighted with the lovely accommodation at Church Byres. Amazing value, especially considering the private sitting room and high standard of furnishings. Choice of a double and twin room (only let out to the same party) that share a spacious bathroom with a tub bath and separate rain shower.
Excellent breakfast served in the sunny sitting room. Jenny and Peter are wonderful hosts, offering advise for local restaurants etc. Highly recommended are the Red Lion in Babcary and The Queens Arms in Corton Denham. Foodies do not miss a visit to the luscious cafe & deli Bramble & Sage at Home Farm, Sutton Montis.
We will definitely be making a return visit. More
