Amazing stay we stayed for one night but wished we cud stay longer ronnie was so welcoming and love the dogs daphne and agnes the breakfast was amazing we will definitely be back

Julie G.



Such a warm welcome and peaceful stay. Can't wait to go back it literally felt like home (can't wait to fuss the dogs again)

Annette P.



Just come back from a one night stay, really wish we could have stayed longer. Ronica really made you feel welcome. Rooms were very spacious and beautifully decorated, overlooking beautiful gardens and so peaceful. The breakfast was amazing, really well cooked.
One of the best b and b's I've ever stayed in, would highly recommend.

Philip T.



I love this place, Ronica makes you feel less like a customer, and more like an old friend. She is without a doubt one of the greatest hosts! The Thorny Cottage was beautiful and cosy, and had everything we needed to enjoy our long weekend. The beds were incredibly comfortable, and the kitchen was fully equipped. Ronica's dogs are absolute babes as well, we miss them already! 10/10, would recommend and would definitely visit again.

Charlotte E.



By far the best hostess we have ever had!
Ronica makes you feel more a friend than a random guest. So welcoming and friendly, the self-catering cottage was impeccably clean, tidy and cosy.
Just down the road from the beach and amenities!
We will miss the peaceful area and the morning alarm of the neighbouring cockerel and birds. Would absolutely visit again!
Thank you Roni, Daphne, Agnes, Elton and Lily (and the feathered ladies! ) for making my birthday getaway everything …we could have hoped for. (Max already misses his ladies! ) If you're wanting to visit Cromer — you couldn't ask for a better place!

Clare B.



The room was very clean and the bed was very comfy. The breakfast was very tasty. The host was very welcoming and friendly even the 2 dogs were very friendly and well behaved would definitely recommend his b&b and would definitely go back

Liz B.

Helen G.



Comfortable rooms with lots of little thoughtful extras. Friendly and helpful host. Breakfast was delicious

Jane D.



What a lovely place. We were welcomed in, given the very beautiful Poppy room with en suite bathroom and a huge comfy bed. Breakfast was a feast! Incredibly glad to have found this gem and already excited about a return trip. It's set in glorious woodland and very close to North Norfolk's stunning coastline. It has a wonderful home from home feel.

Gordon R.



Ronica was a very good hostess and has plenty of thoughtful touches in her guest house.

John W.



Really enjoyed our short break there beautiful setting and run by a lovely lady would thoughrely recommend to anyone

Andrew L.



Lovely and peaceful. Great rooms. Fab landlady 2 nutty (But very soppy) dogs.

David B.



Great place. Tidy, clean and beautiful. Ronnie is full of local knowledge.

Margaret B.



Room perfect, service not so good

Bobby W.



Very good and friendly staff

Kim S.



Absolutely gorgeous place, definitely 5*plus. Ronica can also serve you up the best breakfast you've ever had. Fab place near to everything, will definitely return when I can!

Julie B.



Such a beautiful place to stay. A warm and friendly welcome from Ronica and her adorable Daphne & Jen (dogs). Location and room a delight. Would be hard to top her breakfast (so much choice and attention to detail) anywhere! We only stayed the one night, but it was a memorable stay and would love to come back. Highly recommended.

Michele P.



Best place ever. Room was great. Views to die for

Rob J E.



Having stayed at Thorny Bans twice now we feel compelled to write a review. Spacious room with ensuite and generous comfortable clean bed and wonderful views of the woodland/garden is only the frame in which an informal and friendly atmosphere can be enjoyed while consuming a more than excellent breakfast that caters for all tastes, name it and it was there. We can't thank Ronny enough for making our stay such a pleasant one. One drawback, no other B&B will do anymore, that's certain.

Yvonne L.



Beautiful location, very friendly and welcoming, superb breakfast and great room. We took our dog and the location for dog walking (near Felbrigg) and near dog friendly beach and pubs couldn't have been more perfect. We will return.
