Stayed two nights here while touring Norfolk. Chosen as a result of reviews on Tripadvisor, which proves the value of TA. A large Victorian house, beautifully restored by Mark and Derek. A spacious car park and on street-parking outside. We stayed in Room 2, a front room

Thank you for taking the time to review your visit to The Corner House. We are both delighted that you enjoyed your stay so much and we too enjoyed the flowing conversation over breakfast. It is always a good start to the day when the Breakfast Room is full of cheery chatter with guests sharing their experiences of where to visit and where's best to eat. We try to offer a rounded breakfast choice that will meet a majority of tastes and dietary needs. As we cook everything from fresh and as nothing is pre-prepared or microwaved, we are always reviewing our breakfast options to reflect the seasonal tastes and fresh local produce that is available. A recent addition to our Menu is Mr Kev's Favourite, named after one our guests, this is Smoked Haddock Poached in Milk, served with a Poached Egg or Egg of your choice, along with a side of Spinach and Brown Buttered Bread is proving a popular light bite on these glorious sunny mornings. It would be lovely to have you stay with us again if you are visiting the area again. Kindest regards, Mark and Derek
