Plenty of space for a family or friends to stay with a good deal of thought from the owners on making sure you have an enjoyable and easy stay. Pleasantly furnished with super hot water and efficient heating and no horrible yellow street lights in sight, we woke refreshed and calm each morning. The village of Northwold is conveniently located near Thetford forest (just a shame that the village pub has closed and the church is undergoing renovation) as well as close to major A roads. We'll most certainly be back!
