Stayed here for three nights in the four poster room while birdwatching in Norfolk. Liz and Dennis were lovely and genuinely made you feel welcome. I think you would be hard pressed to find nicer hosts. They are both engaging and interesting conversationalists without being overbearing or intrusive. The breakfasts were excellent, all you could want to set you up...

Fabulous find, amazing breakfast, views of the sea, extremely comfortable room - a place to recharge the batteries - Liz and Dennis are fascinating people and as hosts they couldn't have done anymore to look after us; we felt totally spoilt :-)

We stayed at The Merchant's House for 1 night at the end of February. Lizzie and Dennis were amazing hosts; welcoming and friendly but knew when to leave us to our mini-break - perfect balance. The room was amazing - we stayed in the Blue Room (but will return to stay in the 4 poster room!) The breakfast was out...

We stayed in the four poster room with luxurious bedding and a huge bathroom. Everything here is just perfect, Liz and Dennis are the perfect hosts in their delightful home full of beautiful antique furniture and tasteful art. The house is a one minute walk to the sea, they have parking space, and breakfast does not get any better than...

Stayed here on a very cold winters night. A small and friendly B&B ran by 2 helpful people. A top quality cooked breakfast was followed by a long walk by the bracing North Sea. No wonder it's such a popular place for walkers, I can highly recommend this small seaside town, virtually untouched by modern life.

Another utterly superb one-night stay at The Merchant's House. My partner and I were lucky enough to stay in the beautiful Blue Room, and had a wonderful night's sleep, leaving us refreshed, relaxed and ready for breakfast - which, as ever, was made with immense care and the best ingredients. Liz and Dennis are superb hosts.

Fantastic stay at Merchants House for one night. We couldn't believe our luck to be staying in the four poster bedroom. Sheer luxury for a night.

You will be hard pressed to find nicer hosts. Liz & Dennis came to our rescue during a recent walking holiday of the Norfolk Coast where we had been let down severely by another B&B. Their hospitality and welcome was excellent and their property a joy to stay at.
