Plantation Farmhouse Boutique Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 1 Earsham B&B and Inns
Reviewed 15 May 2013

After all of the spectacular reviews that I had read on here for Plantation Farmhouse, I had set my expectations exceptionally high - I was not disappointed. My only reservation is having to add my own glowing review of my stay as this hidden gem is sure to be unearthed soon and booking again could become nigh on impossible! It is, however, the least that Cherrie and Paul deserve.

Nestled in England's glorious countryside, The Plantation Farmhouse provided a wonderful retreat for a romantic weekend away. Before we had even stepped foot in the building, Cherrie had already been a wonderful source of knowledge for things to do, places to eat and even helped to book taxis and make other arrangements for me.

Upon entering the property, a friendly welcome was followed by a home-blended tea and home-made carrot cake in front of a roaring fire. As the winds howled outside and the rains came pouring down, we enjoyed everything that this lovingly restored Tudor farmhouse had to offer.

After the steep ascent up the original Tudor staircase, we were taken to our room, Willow. This is the larger of the two rooms in every aspect and is recommended for those over 5ft8 I would say. The bedroom is found off an ante-room/reading room (with lovely views) and the ceiling heights are something to behold. The attention to detail is stunning and what awaits is a masterclass in shabby chic. The bed itself is extremely comfortable and nothing has been overlooked - from the little treats with the tea to the in-built speakers in every room. The bathroom is magnificent. There is a roll-top Victorian freestanding bath for those who like to wallow and a massive walk-in shower for those who prefer it. Every luxury is provided and the attention to detail in the fixtures and fittings is jaw dropping.

Larch, the other room, has much lower ceiling heights and the bath is in the bedroom (behind the bedstead). It has a really cosy feel to it though and would be perfect for nights when the elements are lashing the building and you want to just snuggle up. There is also a wonderful balcony attached to Larch (with a little table and a couple of sun loungers) which, unsurprisingly, has been designed to take full advantage of the glorious sunsets that this part of the world has to offer.

After a fantastic night's sleep, be prepared for a feast! Cherrie is a first-rate chef and her cooked breakfasts are a delight for the tastebuds. A lot of effort has been expended on sourcing locally grown produce and the eggs (from the hens on the property) are to die for. For those who prefer a more continental breakfast, you will not be disappointed. Cherrie makes her own jams and preserves and there is plenty of fresh fruit, tasty bread, cereals and freshly squeezed fruit juices as well as freshly ground coffee and a range of teas.

If you're feeling like you should work off some of your breakfast, there are even a couple of bikes that guests can use to meander through the nearby country lanes. Failing that, you can always walk the few steps to the pond to watch the ducks and moorhens effortlessly glide through the water.

The worst thing about this place is having to leave. That, and the knowledge that any other b & b that you stay at from now on will be a huge disappointment in comparison.

If you are looking for a country retreat with a contemporary rustic aesthetic and where pampering touches abound you need look no further.

The bedrooms are cosy with their vintage furniture, freestanding bathtubs and shades of grey (my favourite colour for interiors). Lots of little extras from handmade toiletries to chocolates, and biscuits make for a really luxurious stay. We stayed in the smaller of the two rooms, which has a marvellous terrace overlooking the garden and fields beyond. Given the setting coupled with the décor, the overall feeling is one of tranquillity and serenity.

The breakfast room and guest lounge continue the stylish grey theme and are a cosy place to relax with the Sunday papers in front of the fire! Breakfast itself puts many 5* boutique hotels to shame! All organic, a selection of the freshest fruits, cereals, yoghurts, freshly squeezed orange juice and delicious local apple juice, toast made with really good bread and croissants with Cherrie’s homemade jams and as if this isn’t enough there is a hot option in addition!!

We really couldn’t have asked for anything more, the perfect hosts, wonderful style, a really high quality rural gem… we’ve already booked up our next stay!

Room Tip: Both rooms are delightful.

What a gem! We have just returned from a weekend at this beautiful place. From the moment you arrive you are made to feel at home and when you see your room for the first time you decide that you might not want to leave!
The Willow Room was perfect with fantastic attention to detail and so comfortable that even with the temptation of Cherrie's delicious breakfast it was a struggle to leave the sumptuous bed! Cherrie's homemade cake served with afternoon tea was yummy especially when we sat in front of a roaring fire watching the garden birds on the feeder outside!
Cherrie and Paul are the loveliest couple you could ever wish to meet and treat you to 5 star service throughout your entire stay. We will be returning!!!

Room Tip: Willow was fabulous with a view of the duck pond and front gardens. From Larch you have a balcony ov...

I was talking about this place at the weekend to friends and remembered I never got round to reviewing it

One word needed - Amazing..

However if I was to go into more detail:

The place is beautiful and the service we received was 5 star all the way. The rooms were furnished to perfection and the little touches that you come across (home made biscuits hidden away) are what make this space really special. The breakfast is unbelievably good too. I really cant say a bad word about our weekend there, even a few months on I still talk about it.

And Cherie and Paul are two of the nicest people you will meet.

We want to go back real soon and are determined to do so.

We have recently returned from our third visit. On each of our stays we have been unable to find any fault from the moment of arrival to departure. On arriving you are made to feel extremely welcome in Cherrie & Paul's home. Plantation Farmhouse is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. The attention to detail is superb in every way. Both bedrooms are fitted to a very high standard, as is the visitors' lounge, complete with log fire and superb views over the surrounding countryside. The food is organic, beautifully presented and very tasty. Cherrie & Paul are truly delightful and we never leave without re-booking. Nothing is too much trouble for them, and they will do everything in their power to make your stay a memorable one.
