I can't recommend 'Old Thorn Barn' enough. Danny (the owner) is welcoming and friendly and the staff are likewise - big thanks to Julie for her infectious enthusiasm too !

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 value and a huge recommend on every level.

Stayed here with my boyfriend for one night when attending a wedding at Kimberly Hall in Wymondham. Booking was quick and straightforward, finding the place was easy to find and the room had everything we needed. Plenty of parking on site, and you get a massive, tasty full english breakfast included in the price. wifi worked very well which is useful in norfolk where the signal is rubbish!!! Our only gripe was that the shower pressure was awful so the shower wasn't great but could be easily fixed.

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 was the shower above the bath. But that has no impact on the overall, very pleasant stay.

Fantastic accommodation, very comfortable, clean and beautifully furnished. I used to work as a Rep around Norfolk and regularly used Old Thorn Barn as my base for business purposes. Always looked after by the warm and caring owner, various breakfast options, cooked etc, always to a high standard. Has great facilities such as WIFI etc and off-street parking. I can't wait to return here with family for leisure purposes as a base for visiting Norwich and Yarmouth etc. Highly recommended and great value when compared with other nearby accommodation.

Large room and functional en suite in a courtyard setting. Breakfast in the main building a short dash away, was really good with a large selection of choices. The Lotus factory is about half a mile away if that's what your there for otherwise a car required to visit Norwich about 6 miles away. Clean and tidy overall, again a good base to tour the local area with some nice little villages nearby.
