Norfolk Bed and Breakfast
A Norfolk bed and breakfast stay is a tremendous way to engross yourself in the county and its traditions. The b&b experience is usually more personal and sometimes more romantic than other types of accommodation, with a more intimate and homely atmosphere. A bed and breakfast establishment is usually a large single family residence where guests can be accommodated in private bedrooms at night, some with en-suite facilities, and where breakfast is served in the mornings. The ‘staff’ are typically the house owner and members of their family.
The term ‘bed and breakfast’ is British by origin and this type of accommodation was first made fashionable here before being adopted by other countries. The best Norfolk b&b’s are small, privately owned establishments where the owners will do whatever they can to make your stay a pleasant one. Many are of a similar standard of accommodation & offer the same facilities as small hotels.
In Norfolk b&b’s the choice of food offered for breakfast is often organic or locally sourced meat and produce. Mealtimes are quite flexible and the owners are more than willing to cater for any personal dietary needs, though it is advisable to notify them in advance if possible. As you might expect, prices vary to match the quality of accommodation and its location. After breakfast you vacate the b&b for the day to do whatever you wish, but take a moment to browse through the comments in the guest book to see why people return to the same bed and breakfast again and again.
Throughout Norfolk there is a wide selection of lively activities and delightful attractions to tempt you during the day. Away from the built up areas of Norwich, Great Yarmouth and Kings Lynn you will find tranquil landscapes with lakes, rivers and windmills which are testament to the historic Fenmen who drained the land, creating farmlands and beautiful waterways. To keep you going while you enjoy your leisure time there are peaceful country pubs, restaurants and local ‘chippies’ serving fresh local produce. For ale buffs there are many local brews available and a visit to local microbreweries can be a real treat.
