We have stayed twice at the Moorhen which is very well located in the village within a short distance of all the amenities. On both occasions we had the same comfortable double room overlooking the river with a good sized and well equipped bathroom. An ample range of breakfast dishes is offered and well cooked. The welcome and standard of...

The Moorhen is a delightful establishment set in the actual village and has been refurbished to a desirable standard. Our bedroom overlooked the high street and was very comfortable with an ample en suite. The breakfasts were really good. Fresh Fruit salad,cereal, freshly baked croissants, a fully cooked breakfast with sausages, mushrooms and eggs and lashings of toast as well...

We stayed here for one night in September. We were greeted warmly by the owner, Neil who showed us up to a lovely clean, en-suite front room with a view of the river and boats and then provided drinks and biscuits in the breakfast room. Neil told us that he had come down from Scotland three years ago because they...

I booked this B&B for a short break in late September. My wife has limited mobility so we booked the Ranworth Garden Room with its flat floor shower. It proved a perfect place to stay with good but not over-powering hospitality from the moment we arrived until we left. The breakfasts provided were wonderful with a tremendous choice of well...

We spent 2 nights here two weeks ago and couldn't have chosen a better place. Josie and Neil are wonderful and helpful hosts. The room and the breakfasts were lovely - including the freshly made fruit. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely visit again.

My parents are staying here for a days and The Moorhen is the perfect place for them. Very clean, very helpful and friendly, lovely people who run it - we would definitely recommend to stay here. Breakfast was very good and set them up well for the days out on the boat and visiting the seals.

We were made very welcome this weekend and I completely agree with all the positive things everyone else has said. It's great to see how Neil & Josie have immersed themselves into the local community and are able to give information about just about anything. They certainly made a huge impact on our visit. Breakfast is excellent - and Josie...
