“Good Base For Canoe Trip”
Reviewed 2 July 2012

We stayed here the weekend of the 28th June 2012, as a base for our Canoe trip with 'The Canoeman'.
The owners were helpful in driving us from A to B, to pick up our canoes. Christine (owner), did the most amazing pack lunches for us.
Accommodation was clean and tidy. We had a wet room as a bathroom, not keen on that; but all in all a nice place to stay and a good base in a lovely location.

Room Tip: Unless you are disabled avoid the 'wet room' bathroom

My husband and myself have just returned from the Moorhen , We chose this place as we are hoteliers ourseves and needed a little break. We visit horning when we get the chance to get away as it is only a 20 minute drive from great yarmouth .Well we certainly made the best choice,The welcome you receive and the accommodation ,and not forgetting the breakfast was absolutely lovely.The location is perfect for everthing .You have beautiful views over the broads and little shops, Two good pubs that do good food, also little tea rooms ,and a couple of restaurants.Also you have the Missippi, southern belle that does the broads tour a couple of times a day up and down the broads.If you book here you truely wont be dissapointed ,Thank you so much From Mr & Mrs Simpson

We had a warm welcome and mixed weather in February - when we stayed in the Coot Cabin - normally for self catering families. We had breakfast in the house - and Christine kindly made my Alizonne sachet omlette whilst DH had a big english breakfast.

Very well placed for Bewilderwood - and the Coot Cabin would be great value for a family room - I'd recommend staying a few days - one at Bewilderwood and then explore the Broads. There's limited outside space at the B&B so run the kids ragged during the day!

The Moorhen is perfect - a few minutes to the edge of the Broad with parking out of season. In season, you'll probably need to use one of the car parks. There are some shops for picnics and newspapers and tourist shops for the summer.

I wish more B&Bs were like the Moorhen.

Room Tip: The Coot cabin has sleeps five - a double bed bottom bunk with single above and another bunk. It has...

Stopped here for one night with my partner very recently. I work in a Tourist Information Centre so am familiar with standards in accommodation especially from Enjoy England, this has a silver award and I can see ( and taste why) The view from our room was delightful, I could have just sat and gazed out all day. The breakfast really was wonderful. All in all a very nice place to stay.
