Sue & Bruce Wellings invite you to enjoy Bed & Breakfast in their beautifully restored and extended 17th century family house surrounded by their lovingly maintained 2 acre garden. This historic house was once the Rectory for the adjacent and very picturesque round-towered Norman church of St. Andrew. The house has many interesting features including a well in the hall!
The accommodation comprises one double bedded room, one twin bedded room and a modern luxury bathroom. Tea and coffee making facilities are provided in each room. All rooms have magnificent views over the garden and countryside beyond.
Full English or continental breakfast, using locally sourced ingredients and homemade preserves, is served in the dining room. Visitors can also enjoy the comfortable beamed sitting room with its large inglenook fireplace.
Free WiFi Internet access available.
Other features include a games room with pool table and ample secure car parking.
Visitors are invited to explore or relax in the well-stocked, landscaped gardens which also include an early summer wildflower area and a natural wildlife pond with decking and seating.
Children are welcome but we are unable to accommodate pets. We are also a non-smoking household.
There is easy access to the historic city of Norwich (4 miles) with its magnificent cathedral, museums, art galleries, and excellent shopping. The University of East Anglia with its world renowned Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts is close by.
We are served by several very good pubs and restaurants within a mile. There are also local shops and a regular bus service into the city and a local taxi firm.
The Old Rectory is situated midway between the heritage coasts of both north Norfolk and north Suffolk. There is also easy access to the Norfolk Broads and the RSPB reserves at Strumpshaw, Minsmere and on the north Norfolk coast. There are very attractive local walks, direct from The Old Rectory or from the site of Caistor St Edmund Roman Town (2 miles away).
