The room although I had booked a single was a twin so plenty of room and well equipped with television, wi-fi and beautifully furnished including venetian blinds as well as curtains, so a good nights sleep was assured.

Me & hubby had booked a tour around the Lotus factory and a tour of Classic Lotus. Then we checked out Tripadvisor for somewhere to stay and found this little beauty! It's practically next door to the Lotus grounds, so ideal. We also booked a restaurant in a nearby town for dinner, and the owner kindly offered to drive/collect us...

We have stayed at Old Thorn Barn before and thoroughly enjoyed our stay, so when it came to looking for somewhere near (10 miles) to Snetterton for a race weekend we decided to stay here again the rooms are very spacious and comfortable.

Stayed here after attending a family funeral locally. Very friendly owners and lovely spacious rooms. With a wonderful full English breakfast before we departed, I cannot praise it highly enough. Next time we are back down in Norfolk, we will be paying a return visit.

This place is a little gem. Our room was spotless. The beds were very, very comfortable, bedding spotless. Breakfast spot on. The owner was friendly and helpful. Look no further if you require accommodation in this area. For eating out in the evening try the Worlds End Pub, nearby. The food was superb.

Stayed here with my archery team on the recommendation of a friend who was a regular customer on business. Great location for access to Norwich with the coast not too far away (plus next door to Lotus cars for motoring fans)! The rooms were spacious, clean and the beds very comfortable. Not the most luxurious but what are you doing...

We stayed here for 2 nights whilst visiting family close by. Large hotels could learn some lessons from this very comfortable establishment. We arrived and were warmly greeted and offered a pot of fresh coffee in a very comfortable, bright and cosy warm sitting room. Our room was very comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. The lighting was excellent...

A 2 night stay while at Snetterton truck race weekend. Made to feel very welcome, nice room and great breakfast. Nice to be able to have the use of a fridge for our pack up. Would stay here again when we are up this way again.

I've stayed here quite a few times over the past few years. On each and every occasion I have always found it to be the same. The rooms are scrupulously clean, and the breakfast is outstanding.. The owners are very accommodating - I frequently have to have an early breakfast due to an early start and it is never a...

This really is a wonderful place to stay! Very welcoming host and the rooms are really comfortable and attractive – but bring your own hair dryer if you have anything more than a ‘short’ hair cut. The breakfast is superb – no rubbery scrambled eggs or cheap bacon and sausages here! Just a short drive from Norwich and great accessibility...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
