Stayed at Decoy Barn for a friends wedding at nearby Fritton House. A lot of potential "refugees" unable to stay at the latter will have to fight to find other places to stay in the immediate locality and Decoy Barn is probably your best bet in the area if that is the case.
Karen and Paul are congenial hosts and helpful sorting stuff out as they did for us arriving later than expected on the Friday night and looking to get eat etc.
Rooms are purpose built off the garden in a former barn arrangement. They're not huge but big enough with a luxury bathroom. There are tables outside each room which are nice to sit out on ( weather permitting obviously).
Breakfasts were good and large portions with most accompaniments you might want.
The road off which the B and B is sited is quite busy and you do here it but it's not the end of the world.
I'd have to dock Decoy Barn one star if I'm being objective and this would be for the fact that it seems when everyone is using the facilities ie showers there is a finite amount of hot water. We were hoping to have ours before leaving for the wedding at around 1430 but there was no hot water whatsoever! According to friends who had stayed there before this was not an isolated incident. So maybe get up earlier to ensure a non Gordonstonesque experience!
