Details

Our B & B accommodation is situated in the picturesque Broadlands village of Horning, right in the heart of the Broads. We are set in the centre of the village next to all the shops, three restaurants and two pubs.

Two of our bedrooms overlook the river, one double & one twin/family room. Two are ground floor, one double and one twin/family room in a peaceful garden setting. The garden rooms also have a lockable interconnecting door that may be more suitable for families with older children or adults that may need support. All our rooms are fully en-suite.

Come and use us as a base for water-born activities such as day-boats, canoeing or the Mississippi paddle steamer. Possibly a day out on the train from our local station to Sheringham and then the steam train to Holt. Walking, cycle hire and a fabulous day out at the adventure park Bewilderwood.

Make this a green holiday. We will meet you from the train and help you create a car free holiday. We are an equal opportunities establishment, all are welcome.
