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
Thank you Barnham Broom for helping make the Star Throwers Ball a great evening for this brilliant little cancer charity. Very good food, excellent staff, all very polite and efficient. Good vegan food too thank you!
Just experienced a magical Spa Experience at this hidden gem in the Norfolk countryside. Key is the professional friendly staff whether it be in Rooms Division, Food & Beverage or Recreation.
Gorgeous comfy beds to snuggle up in, clean and functional bathrooms. I love the in room Tea/ Coffee standards. Sumptuous afternoon tea treat on arrival, relaxed sports bar, terrace & lounges. The lovely Meg Smith who took me on for my full body massage in their Spa, great soothing hands, I will be back! Pool, Sauna & Steam with an excellent gym facility “ The Edge” For those of you that are Golfers, perfection.
Did not experience the stunning Brassiere, plan to on my next visit. This is a hidden gem, close to Norwich, come and experience some “chill time”
We stayed here with our 11 month old daughter and the staff were so helpful, particularly the Reception staff who helped to sterilise our baby bottles each night! Their English breakfast was yummy and their pool was great! We will visit again soon, thank you!
I had a good deal on a spa day with a light lunch and treatments included. This is a hotel with a spa attached so I did find myself to be the only person wandering around in my bathrobe (the changing rooms are on the opposite side of the building). The hotel was lovely, the food was very nice. The gym fully equipped and good to use. The swimming pool was small but adequate and there is a steam room and sauna (sauna was out of order). There were loungers placed around the edge of the pool. If you want to drink water whilst lounging it is better to bring your own water bottle was the v shaped tiny cups mean you have to drink quickly rather than sip at leisure. As it is a hotel the pool is used by families therefore the toddlers in the changing room can be a little noisy (or bellowing at one point unfortunately) and there were children in the pool which doesn’t lend itself to quiet relaxation if that’s your aim. I noted that there was a sign stating that only over 16’s were allowed in the pool between 1-3 so was a little disappointed to return from lunch at 2 to find a number of young children in the pool and swimming instruction being provided by a staff member so it was a little like being at a public pool with the noise level. Having said that the staff were very pleasant and helpful, the spa treatment area was lovely and the treatments themselves excellent. Chrissy who was my therapist took time to explain everything and was lovely. I would return for the treatments.
A very good three night stay. Beautiful location. We enjoyed the Valley golf course, used the tennis courts (which had a slightly rough surface) and the squash courts. The swimming pool OK but felt that the jacuzzi area could be much smaller and the swimming area larger. A pity that the sauna was not working. All the staff - rooms, sports, dining room - were very helpful and pleasant. The breakfasts were particularly good. The hotel was very clean with plenty of seating areas. We hope to return. We will be looking for offers!!
