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.
