A night to remember - Rating 5/5

Stayed a Old Thorn Barn for one night prior to visit to Lotus Cars. A warm welcome on arrival, very nice room with a very comfortable bed. Good breakfast in morning. Would thoroughly reccomend if you are visiting Lotus or Norwich.

Fabulous as Always - Rating 5/5

The Old Thorn is my preferred choice of stay wheneever I am in the areas. Danny our host is charming and helpful. The accommodation is first rate. I miss out on the cooked breakfast due to an early start but there is always a selection of cereals yoghurts and fruit juice for the early riser. I am already booked for my nest visit!

Like being at home - Rating 5/5

I stayed for one night in this lovely B&B. It was warm, peaceful and welcoming. I enjoyed sitting in the lounge area and wandering around in my slippers. It was like being at home. Old Thorn Barn was easy to find and the room was comfortable. I would definately recommend it and hope to go back in the future.

Lovely stay - close to Lotus - Rating 5/5

We booked Old Thorn Barn on several recommendations from within the Lotus community, and were very happy with our choice. It is the nearest accommodation to the Lotus factory, where we had booked a factory tour. Danny and Carol were great hosts, very friendly and welcoming, but also respecting our privacy. The accommodation, in a small outbuilding, was excellent. Very clean and comfortable. A good selection of tea, coffee, and biscuits was available in the room, and we also had access to a small communal kitchen with a microwave and fridge - useful for snacks and keeping the wine chilled! We wouldn't hesitate to return in the future, and highly recommend the Old Thorn Barn.

Stayed at Ild Thorn Barn many times always made to feel welcome by Danny who does a great job and makes a fantastic breakfast. As we were at the race circuit for a 24 hour race we had 3 rooms in the court yard at the back which was great as we were keeping unusual hours. Had a great stay and will be back next month.
