“Excellent B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2013

We had read the Tripadvisor, and we were a bit sceptical because it all seemed too good to be true. Having visited, we can now say that the reviews are justified. The rooms are spacious, well-appointed and clean. The hosts are friendly, welcoming and helpful. The food is excellent. We were only there one night (business trip) but we endorse the praise offered by other reviewers. It is indeed excellent, and we would recommend it to anyone.

We stayed in room 4 for two nights, from arrival on the 6th Dec until we left late morning on 8th Dec we had an amazing time, Liam & Alan are superb as hosts, they are very friendly & knowledgeable about the area, places to visit & what is the best whisky.
The atmosphere was very relaxing, we spent the evenings chatting in front of the open fire with Millie dog for company, Millie is such a friendly but quiet dog.
The only way to describe our room is to say it was awesome, we will definatley be back and we want to book room 4 again.
Well done Liam & Alan on a job well done, hope the garden plans go ahead we cant wait to see the finished result. Thanks Again Pam & Andie.

Room Tip: Room 4 has a shower room and a separate bathroom with double ended bath for those romantics out ther...

We had a wonderful time at The Greenhouse. From the moment we walked through the door we felt so welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for Liam and Alan who were the perfect hosts. We felt so relaxed and comfortable. The Green House was spotless throughout, the bed was so comfortable with a lovely duvet and pillows and the drench shower was fab with lovely Molton Brown products. The food was excellent and we can highly recommend the five course dinner option. We will certainly visit again!

We stayed for two nights in room 5 and the entire experience was excellent. Lovely, smart and tasteful room, calm and chilled atmosphere and first rate food for dinner and breakfast. Highly recommended. Will be back.

My husband and I have just returned from a two night stay (6-8th)Nov at the Green House B&B. We booked our stay having read previous reviews and were not disappointed. Alan and Liam are excellent hosts and we were made to feel very welcome from the minute we arrived. Nothing was to much trouble. They have made an excellent job of renovating the property to a very high standard and it is well worth it's five star rating. Our room (no 3) was spacious, comfortable and very clean.
The breakfasts were excellent with high quality produce used. We also had an evening meal on our second night which again was really excellent! We finished our meal in front of the open fire in the lounge with cheese and biscuits, coffee and chocolates.
All in all our stay was superb and excellent value for money. We would definitely recommend it to anyone and hope to return ourselves. Well done Alan and Liam for our lovely stay.

The Green House B & B is a beautifully restored seventeenth century farm house. Almost derelict when its current owners, Alan and Liam, bought the property in 2011, the B & B opened in 2012. The building has been beautifully restored and rehabilitated, with sensitive refurbishments (new double glazed windows and central heating) and tasteful modern decor. It has been a labour of love for Alan and Liam, and it has been worth every penny and hour spent.

There are five rooms, all slightly different but each benefiting from comfortable beds and drench-style en-suite showers. Room 4 benefits from an additional bathroom over the original porch with double ended bath tub, and the largest suite has the most spacious of rooms at the back of the building.

The two lounges at the front and back of the building offer tranquil spaces to sit with a drink and the papers. The bar tariff is selective but comprehensive, and evening meals are available if booked in advance. Meals are exceptional value (three courses for £25), calling on local suppliers and seasonal Norfolk ingredients. Alan and Liam are happy to recommend local pubs and restaurants if you'd like to dine out.

No review of the Green House should fail to highlight Alan and Liam. Their attention to detail in the refurbishment of the property is matched in their attentiveness to guests. Nothing is too much trouble and they are proactive in spotting anything you might need.

The Green House is closer in standard to a boutique hotel, but it's owners have demonstrated great focus and commitment by limiting their offer to a B&B (i.e. without a public bar or restaurant).

Perhaps, in 60 Trip Advisor reviews, the best accommodation I've ever stayed in.

Room Tip: Room 4 has two bathrooms, one with a bath and one with a shower, and is slightly quieter than rooms...

Our hosts made our stay a Pleasure. Their recommendations of where to walk on the coastal path worked for us. Only Ten minutes’ drive away. Their suggestions of places to eat and take a drink if you wish a delight. We really did enjoy the area, close to Cromer, east coast, beaches and walks. The accommodation was very clean, comfortable and stylish. The breakfast room and house with its history was interesting the food and service excellent. Parking for approx. 5 cars directly in front of the house provides ease of access.
