Reviewed 9 October 2013

We stayed on 2 consecutive week-ends, 4 then 3 nights. My husband is frail and has food intolerances. Danny was extremely helpful, getting 2 grab rails for the shower and providing a non slip shower mat. The room was very comfortable, well decorated and very clean. Breakfast was excellent with a very good choice, gluten and lactose choices for my husband and beautifully cooked. The lounge area was a bonus with TV, laptop and games. We will stay again when visiting family nearby. Peace and quiet and very relaxing. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Most rooms have bath with shower over, but we had a room with a walk in shower.

Advertised as 'Premier Accommodation' but regretfully far from it. Average room, bathroom facilities poor (antique hairdryer, shower needs replacing, lacking decent toiletries). Greeted very briefly by 'owner' who didn't appear that interested. Breakfast OK. Wouldn't stay here again. OVERPRICED!!

This has got to be one of the best B & B's I have ever stayed in, which was for two weeks while working in the area.
Immaculate in every way. Great breakfasts, excellent sleep quality, good size room with space to work if need be, friendly welcome when you arrive, no faults at all.

A very clean & bright B&B about 8 miles outside of Norwich in a rural setting.
Absolutely silent at night and with the very comfortable 5' double bed an excellent nights sleep.

Breakfast is extensive; yoghurts, cereals, fruit, full English, various eggs, porridge etc.
Very tasty, well presented and good service.
Decor is very tasteful with a lounge area with flat screen TV and DVD player. Access to PC also available. Free Wifi & small flat screen TV with freeview in the room.

Overall a very good stay and reasonable value for money.

We have been staying at Old Thorn Barn for a few years now when visiting Lotus or Snetterton circuit. Danny is a great host - nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are very nicely done with big comfortable beds, and spotlessly clean. We have always been able to get early breakfasts, and at times he has organised lunch catering for us when we have been running events. Plenty of safe parking, 20 minutes from Norwich or 2 minutes drive from a great local pub, the Bird in Hand for dinner, a generous and tasty breakfast, local knowledge and any help you need - I can't see he could do anything much better.
