  • "A wonderful warm welcome from Jeff our host and also fresh food."

    The Annex was spotlessly clean with every convenience necessary for a very comfortable stay. They beautiful grounds are an absolute joy to walk and a visit to the chickens

  • "We had a great, quiet stay at the Annex."

    We were pleased with all the amenities and the comfort of the place, and the hosts were very welcoming. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to do our cooking, and the hosts provided a lovely welcome hamper with wine, bread, milk, and eggs. The bedroom had an excellent array of shelving and closet space for the two of us and many lighting options. The detailed notes and maps of links and nearby locations of interest that were provided were handy as we traveled around the area by foot/bus. The property is right near a direct bust route to Norwich. The garden was expansive and great fun to explore; I loved the monkey puzzle tree, all the hidden seating nooks, and, of course, visiting the ex-battery rescue hens. We had a great stay here over our anniversary week - it was just right for us, and we would certainly stay here again.

  • "We were greeted with a welcome pack of essentials (bread, butter, milk and eggs) and a bottle of wine."

    We were offered use of the pool, but were unable to take up the offer as the weather was somewhat inclement. The owner was extremely helpful, and gave us useful pointers as to where to shop and eat out locally. This is a suitable venue for an older couple, but will not accomodate people with children. The venue is well placed to visit Norwich and coastal areas like Caister and Great Yarmouth, and the RSPB site at Strumpshaw Fen.

THE HOSPITABLE OWNERS WERE EXTREMELY HELPFUL AND GAVE US FULL ACCESS TO THEIR BEAUTIFUL 3 ACRE GARDEN, WHICH WAS A DELIGHT TO SPEND TIME IN AFTER A DAY SPENT AT THE BEACH OR SIGHTSEEING.

  • "The location in a quiet neighbourhood, close to amenities and Norwich City, was excellent."

    The accommodation is very well appointed and the hosts are friendly and welcoming, without being intrusive. We enjoyed being able to prepare our own meals if we wanted to and to have the use of laundry facilities was a bonus. Arriving late to a warm welcome and a generous welcome hamper was appreciated after our long day. We will certainly be recommending The Annex to family and friends and we hope to stay again in the future.

  • "The annex was clean and the welcome pack was very nice."

    The ability to use the extensive grounds was nice and the location was good. The hosts were very welcoming and had a good range of leaflets on places to visit, though we had done our homework before hand so we had our itinerary just about mapped out. If we were to visit the Norwich area again we would definitely use the Annex again if it was available.

    The accommodation was excellent and very comfortable, home from home! I was looked after very well and nothing was too much trouble! The gardens were beautiful and full of wildlife and Jeff was more than happy to let us walk around at leisure which was lovely. The Annex is based in Poringland which gives you access to all of Norfolk’s places of interest without having to travel to far! The local pubs are friendly and well worth a visit! You might even find Jeff in the Oak on a Tuesday evening... Anyone wishing to visit Norfolk can stay here in comfort safe in the knowledge you will be looked after for your stay. I will be back again for sure. Thanks for an amazing holiday.
