Bay Tree Cottage Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 10 Fakenham B&B and Inns
Reviewed 14 January 2017

We booked this B&B because of it's No:1 rating on Trip Advisor and boy does it deserve it's prime rating.
My wife was attending the Norfolk Painting School nearby on a 5 day painting course so we decided to book Bay Tree for six nights and I stayed as well to explore Norfolk with my camera. When we arrived in the evening after an 8 hour drive from West Wales we had a lovely warm greeting from Sarah and parked easily. We were shown to a lovely warm, clean, comfortable room with excellent tea and coffee making facilities and nice touches such as welcome chocolates and home baked biscuits.
We were given really nice advices on local pubs and restaurants and found plenty of places to eat just minutes walk into town. We slept in comfortable beds and the best pillows I've ever had, we even asked Sarah where we could purchase the same. In the mornings Sarah prepared gorgeous fresh fruit salads for breakfast. The dining room looked out onto a lovely garden and we often watched Paul collect fresh eggs from their hens for a wonderfully cooked full english breakfast. Sarah and Paul made us feel very at home and nothing was too much trouble. We feel like we became friends by the end of our stay they are such lovely easy going people. We would definitely recommend Bay Tree Cottage and will be staying their again when my wife attends another painting course.

Room Tip: The twin room was superb..

Went to see the Thursford Christmas Spectacular with my Mum and came across this gem of a Bed and Breakfast.
Sarah really welcomed us and we felt at home straight away not on edge at all.
The breakfast was lovely and the room very warm with everthing we needed. Just a little tip take your slippers my 83 year old Mum had hers packedas she always does
Thank you Sarah

Hi Gillian, many thanks for your lovely review. Good tip about the slippers! Will remember to tell future guests as we do ask people to kindly leave shoes downstairs (after a series of unfortunate mishaps)! Hope to see your again next year. Kind regards, Sarah

Our third visit to Bay Tree Cottage! That says it all really, but let's add a couple of extra reasons for choosing this place for a couple of nights. Attention to detail and kindness are the watchwords- even down to getting us the morning paper when we found the local shop had closed down. Remembering S's predilection for chocolates and fresh coffee- both ready and waiting in the room. Even the hens obliged with fresh eggs despite the Autumnal weather- obviously well-trained.

Lovely room with all the extras including home made biscuits.
First rate breakfast including raspberries from the garden in the fruit salad and fresh eggs from the chickens at the bottom of their large garden.

First rate and will use again next year.

Many thanks Paul and Sarah for a great stay

My wife and I and our 10 month old son stayed over at Bay Tree Cottage B&B for 1 night in October 2016. What a great accommodation and lovely couple! Sarah and Paul even prepared a travel cot and high chair for our baby before our arrival, which was much appreciated. The room was homely and warm, which was just what we needed after a wet seaside trip and the house is beautiful. The breakfast was amazing, and Sarah kindly accommodated for our son at breakfast which was greatly appreciated. They have the most amazing eggs, fresh from their chickens at the end of the garden. We really do recommend this little gem run by a kind couple. We will definitely be making a return trip.
