Boutique B&B accommodation & 2 Rosette Dining in Norwich

‘The Old Rectory’ is  a charming, privately-owned Grade II listed Georgian property, with Victorian Coach House, offering stylish B&B accommodation and fine cuisine to our guests. We are proud to be Norwich’s only AA 4 Star ‘GOLD’ 2 Rosette ‘Restaurant with Rooms’

You’ll love our warm and genuine hospitality, spacious stylish guest rooms (most with south-facing views over our well-stocked gardens and NWT Thorpe Marshes Reserve), award-winning 2 AA Rosette Dining and friendly, caring service; it’s the perfect combination for a relaxing Short Break or a rejuvenating overnight stay.

Our comfortable Drawing Room, with its welcoming log fire in winter, is just the place to enjoy a warming pot of tea or a pre-dinner drink, whilst during the summer months you can laze a while on our pool terrace or even take a dip in our outdoor swimming pool. 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 visit, take a look at Dowager’s Cottage, our cosy ‘4 Star’ non-smoking self-catering property, sleeping 2 guests, which is situated within our grounds.

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.

We, and our Birman cats Rolo & Milli, look forward to welcoming you soon
