This place is just perfect for a wonderful look around Norfolk. Ok, on a main road but easy reach to everywhere you want to visit. Spotless, beautiful furniture. Amazing comfy bed. Loved my stay. Jojo who worked at the pub made it extra special, couldn’t do enough for us, thank you so much jojo. And thank you Phil for a wonderful few days. Hope to be back soon! .

I really enjoyed my stay at The Pig Shed, the location was perfect and the rooms immaculate. Very well priced for the high quality accommodation. Unfortunately I didn’t eat here but the bar and restaurant looked lovely I would certainly recommend this place for business or pleasure.

Great location for a family wanting to travel around! Castle Acre and the Priory are a few minutes drive away and also worth the visit! Would reccomend eating else where, despite there being a pub on site. Expensive kids meals, limited menu and uncooked food. Rooms are very clean, spacious and have a fridge which came in handy! Would definitely stay again!

Great location. Much bigger than expected rooms. All the usual in room amenities such as towels, toiletries, iron, a fan, fridge with water and tea & coffee making. Spotlessly clean. Excellent attached pub. Would definitely recommend for exploring many of Norfolk’s beauty spots. Will definitely return.

What a lovely place to stay. So impressed with the facilities, cleanliness and friendliness of the people we met. We had two nights at the Pig Shed. The rooms were very clean and very comfortable beds - very highly recommended. There is a pub on site which was handy and the food was absolutely delicious - that too is highly recommended! We will definitely be booking again.
