Woodman's Farm
Ranked #33 of 80 Norwich B&B and Inns
Reviewed 18 October 2013

Arrived home tonight after 4 night stay in 'The Barn'. My family loved the cottage which was warm, modern with character. Lovely patio area under front porch and completely private, views over fields.

A really warm welcome from our hosts.

Location is excellent and very easy to find following the directions given. Just off a major road fifteen minutes out of Norwich and yet set behind a forest and so totally peaceful. The driveway to the property through a lovely area of forest is sublime. Great location for Norfolk Broads (25 minute drive) and Norfolk North Coast (25 minutes).

Woodmans farm is enchanting and a real find.

We had a wonderful 2 nights at this gorgeous little b&b and would highly recommend it. With 6 of us in the family we were able to book all 3 rooms in the annex - it was exactly what we were looking for. Before booking we contacted the owners by phone and Janice was really helpful, informing us of the room layouts and agreeing to allow us to bring a blow up single bed to turn the large twin into a triple - very accommodating.

The location is gorgeous - we saw deer and rabbits in the grounds which the kids were thrilled about. The rooms themselves are beautiful, very homely, clean, and with comfortable beds. The pool was a massive bonus - it turned a few nights stay for a friend's birthday party into what felt like a 'proper' holiday.

The breakfasts were huge and great quality and Janice was so helpful, recommending a walk to the local pub for dinner the first night and then phoning her friend to reserve us a boat for a few hours on the broads the next morning (better boats and cheaper than any other company we have used on the broads - ask her!). We couldn't get a signal at the b&b so she offered to let us use her phone whenever necessary.

We had no problems finding the b&b but that may be because I used streetmaps before we set off so I recognised the road and the white oval sign at the end of the drive - I would recommend doing this if you are not familiar with the area.

We are considering staying here for our main family holiday next summer as it was just so perfect - at £60 a room we thought it was great value! Our friends in the area are going to be seeing a lot more of us now we have discovered this place - whether they like it or not!

Our second visit to Woodmans Farm to sample Janice and Richard's excellent B&B.
Thoroughly recommend it to anyone wishing to visit the loveley Norfolk north coast.
The full English breakfast is superb with the rooms are clean and tidy.
The entrance off the Cromer road can be difficult to see from your car the first time you visit but is easy the next time!

After driving for 6hrs+, from the Northwest, we needed an overnight B&B stay before starting a boating holiday on the 'Broads' the following day. Lots of hotels were booked up and the Woodmans Farm B&B rooms were fully booked but the owner was most helpful and allowed us to stay in the two bed-roomed cottage. The owner informed us that she would not be at home during the evening but she went out of her way to ensure that we had immediate access to the cottage and all its facilities when we arrived.
She cooked us an excellent full English breakfast the following morning.
Wonderful
Very pleasant and would not hesitate to stay there again.

We have just returned from a short 2 night stay at this exceptional B & B. Located in a tranquil rural setting, the accommodation was first class and the resident owners were extremely friendly and helpful. Excellent full English breakfast in a very pleasant garden room. You will not experience a better B & B in the UK let alone Norfolk! Easy enough to find if you rely on your own navigational skills and turn off the Sat Nav!

We have just returned from a week in the 3 bedroom barn. Fantastic property and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. My daughters both loved the shower room and spent most of their time in there! The games room/pool was a nice distraction from the TV! The grounds were amazing and having deer in the gardens was different.The only downside was the local pub wasn't too local and wasn't open but that could be because we visited out of season. The barn had a selection of games i.e. Jenga, Trivial Pursuits etc and the fact we couldn't get a mobile signal and no wifi was a bonus!

We stayed for 3 nights at Woodman's Farm. Lovely country farmhouse style, beautiful decor, very comfortable and clean. Comfortable lounge for guest use. We tried everything on the breakfast menu and it was all great. Generous hot drinks corner. Pool and games room were immaculate and a lovely way of spending the time between outings. Janice was very welcoming and helpful. I recommend it most highly!
