My 9 year old and I booked for our 3 day break at short notice, but having been once, look forward to returning. It is rare to find somewhere so peaceful with such country charm and the flexibility to either self-cater, or have a continental breakfast provided in your room. We stayed in Woolly View which has either a twin or double zip-link bed option, a small but adequate shower room, and a kitchen/sitting area with tv, Freeview box and dvd player. There was a selection of dvds, books and local information for us to browse through. Our stable door looked out over a small, fenced patio area, which was just large enough for a patio table with a couple of chairs and some pretty flower pots. We loved watching the wild rabbits hurtling around in the next field! The scones with jam and fresh cream which were left out for our arrival were delicious and most welcome! The accommodation is colour co-ordinated, and I considered it even more attractive than their website photos portray. Although wireless internet is not advertised, when I had problems with my mobile broadband, Christine and James very kindly let me borrow their network. They were also especially lenient with our check-in/check-out times, although of course this will depend on their other bookings. There is an attractive pub which is reputed to serve excellent food, about a mile away, and not much further is the village of Spixworth with a Co-op supermarket, butchers, post office, fish and chip shop, newsagent, etc. In Frettenham itself we found a lovely newly-opened farm shop for fresh fruit, vegetables, and dairy produce which was made on site. I highly recommend Bay Tree House for a complete 'switch off' in the countryside, without feeling too isolated.
