Thanks to generous reviews from our guests, we’re one of the top Norwich B&Bs on TripAdvisor. They love our warm hospitality, spacious stylish guest rooms (most with south-facing views over well-stocked gardens and NWT Thorpe Marshes Reserve), delicious freshly cooked breakfasts and 2 AA Rosette Dining as well as our friendly service; it’s the perfect combination for a relaxing Short Break or a rejuvenating overnight stay.

Our comfortable Drawing Room with its plush sofas, and welcoming log fire in winter, is just the place to enjoy a pre-dinner drink or coffee and liqueurs. During the summer months you can laze  on our pool terrace or maybe take a dip in our outdoor swimming pool – it’s heated by the sun so it can feel a bit bracing, but it’s very refreshing on a hot day! Business guests will find The Old Rectory a calm and restful setting in which to unwind after the strains of the working day, enjoy a delicious meal and feel revived and refreshed after a good night’s sleep.

For a longer stay ‘Dowager’s Cottage’, a cosy 4* non-smoking self-catering property for 2 guests, is situated within our grounds. You can book online – just click here to check availability and make a reservation. For more information please see Dowager’s Cottage dedicated website.

Situated in an acre of mature gardens in the residential Conservation Area of Thorpe St Andrew, The Old Rectory is just over two miles from Norwich city centre and rail station and about 4 miles from Norwich International Airport. There is a frequent  day-time bus service (Monday to Saturday) from outside our entrance to the city centre (journey time about 10 – 15 minutes) with an hourly service at weekends.

We look forward to welcoming you soon
