Karen’s a B&B veteran and has thought of everything: peaceful spaces for reading, sweets, always fresh flowers on the table. It would be lovely for friends or couples together; the two bedrooms have views for miles, both with short private staircases and generous tea trays. Breakfasts are hearty: homemade jams, cereals and a full English, served in the quarry-tiled dining room.
The big, comfortable sitting room is packed with books, music, games and a TV, so if it pours you can light the wood-burner and batten down the hatches for the day, grab a handful of leaflets from the porch and plan your next outing.
The countryside is good for walking and cycling and the coast is close, with Walcott and Happisburgh beaches within two miles and Cromer 30 minutes’ drive, or you could mess about on the Broads with boat trips and pub lunches by the water.
