The rooms are lovely and the ambience is peaceful and mellow. Lots of Lotus related memorabilia which is good as so close to Hethel. The breakfasts are magnificent too. Superb...

We attended a wedding nearby and this B and B was ideally situated to the venue. Beautiful from the outside and equally beautiful from the inside. The room was cosy and well equipped. Very friendly host and staff and an excellent breakfast was served each morning. I wouldn't mind staying there in winter to enjoy the lovely lounge. Personal drawback...

I have stayed in this lovely B&B hotel three times now, and each time loved it. I originally chose The Old Thorn Barn because it is close to Mulbarton, where my niece and her family live. The room rate is unbelievably good for all the amenities provided. Each time I return, I am given my spacious room with its own...

Old Thorn Barn offers a warm welcome, to this Seventeenth-century barn which over looks beautiful Norfolk Countryside. The barn has been carefully restored to retain all its original features. The bedrooms are all cosily furnished and have private facilities. Breakfast is served in the long barn where a wood burning stove and a lounge area combine with the dining room to form a casual and relaxing atmosphere. In the summer a stoned courtyard (off the lounge) with tables and chairs will be available for guests and friends. ... more   less
