Have a relaxing stay in the English countryside at Barnham Broom. Peacefully ensconced in the River Yare Valley, 30 minutes west of Norwich, this is a place where you can wake up to the sound of chirping birds and duck chatter on the lake, then unwind with a couple of rounds of golf on two championship courses designed by acclaimed architects.
A low-rise cluster of red-brick buildings set among manicured landscaping, Barnham Broom beautifully blends low-key exteriors with contemporary Norfolk pampering inside. Shrug off any stress with holistic treatments and classic therapies in the spa before a lazy afternoon spent happily padding between the heated indoor pool, Jacuzzi, steam room and sauna.
Rooms are sophisticated and homey, and the brasserie showcases fresh local, served up with a side of garden views. Make sure you leave room for afternoon treats by the fire or on the terrace at Valley Bar, where you can take in the scenic setting.
How to Get There
Very comfortable bed and room temperature. Water temperature in bathroom was virtually at boiling point even without the tap turned to hottest position and we felt a warning sign should have been visible. I practically scalded my hands a couple of times.
Dining room was cold and we did ask our server if the air con system could be turned up. We gradually warmed up a liytle during the meal but not sure that was due to the heating system! We do object to having to pay a surcharge of over £3 for each vegetable side dish with the main course, a practice I have never understood.
Sadly our 2nd round of golf was halted after 6 holes on the Valley course which was saturated and really unplayable but that is no fault of yours naturally.
Would probably return however as it is a lovely setting.
My friends and I visited on the 'Girls night in' deal. What can I say - it was a truly fantastic experience. The back massage that I had was one of the best I have had in a long time - if ever (thanks Katie). The staff throughout our stay (reception, spa and restaurant) were all friendly and everything was very well organised. The food - afternoon tea, our evening meal and breakfast - were delicious. The only possible thing that could be an improvement is a proper jacuzzi within the spa area. Otherwise, it was a perfect stay and I honestly can't wait to visit again.
