We have just returned from a weekend break in this little gem, Wells next the sea. We have not been to this area before but Caroline and Tim were very helpful about what to see and what was easily accessible as my husband is disabled. They are very easy people to visit with a warm welcome and excellent little personal...

We stayed here for five nights at the end of April, we arrived a little early but the owner Caroline, was happy to let us in and show us to our room. She was friendly and welcoming. The room was clean and comfortable as was the shower room. The road that the property is on is quiet and close to...

What a great find this was, Caroline and Tim were amazing hosts they can't do enough for you, they help in every way possible, even right down to rummaging in the shed to look up the colour of a paint used in the house!! 😂 Extremely comfortable rooms, clean and cozy, plenty of wardrobe space and lots of coat hangers,...

Lovely B & B run by Caroline and Tim who were excellent hosts. We stayed in the Annexe with our small dog which was excellent. Extremely comfortable room with all amenities possible.

I stayed here as one of a group of four birdwatchers for 3 nights in February, and found it to be very comfortable, and the breakfasts were excellent. The owners were very friendly and helpful too. We have already booked again for next year!

We spend a long weekend each February birdwatching in Norfolk and this year had to find a new B&B. Luckily we found The Boxwood which exceeded our requirements.

Lovely B and B. Stayed in the annex which is great - very private, warm and cosy. The bed was super comfy and the bathroom huge. Homemade cake was left in the room every day - what a treat!

Phoned on Thursday to stay on Fri/Sat. Was offered a reduction for the dogs (3, yes, we have three!) because of the short notice and availability. Maps suggested the house was a distance from the town so we were pleasantly surprised to find it was less than a two-minute walk (which saves the parking problems in summer!) We used the...
