About Top Barn

Caroline and Richard ElliotCaroline and Richard Elliott invite you to stay at Top Barn for a quality Bed and Breakfast experience.

They say, “We fell in love with Norfolk when we moved to the county in 2001. Having recently retired from our regular employment we wanted to develop a project together and have long held a dream to open our home as a rural bed and breakfast. We very much want to share our love for Norfolk, it’s peace and tranquillity and the wonderful local food and drink.

Caroline is most at home in her kitchen producing wonderful meals and Richard has extended our barn conversion and developed an interest in producing home grown produce and meat. We opened in 2015 and have a simple philosophy – relax and enjoy.”

Top Barn was converted to a dwelling in 2001 and in recent years further alterations have taken place to enlarge the property. In 2014 we set about adding a new entrance and a corridor to the bedrooms. With comfortable, modern rooms and peaceful views over the fields, it’s an ideal year-round base for relaxing, bird-watching, walking and exploring all that Norfolk has to offer.

Top Barn CourtyardOur cooked breakfasts definitely have a local flavour, with eggs from our chickens, bacon and sausages from our rare breed pigs, bread from our kitchen, in fact most of the ingredients we use are sourced and prepared on site or locally. For your evening meal we can recommend some good local restaurants or if you prefer to stay in we can usually provide a two or three course supper. If you need a lunch to take with you, we offer a range of hampers to suit most occasions, all prepared at Top Barn and using local ingredients.

Top Barn provides the perfect opportunity to relax in our rural surroundings, but also the perfect base to visit nearby Norwich, the Norfolk Broads or the Norfolk and Suffolk coastline. Why not explore Norfolk and Suffolk from Top Barn?

Go Green at Top Barn

Top Barn is heated using a biomass boiler fuelled by woodchip and there’s a wood burning-stove in your guest sitting-room. Some of our electricity is generated on site from an array of photovoltaic panels on the roof of our garage block. All the lightbulbs in the house are low energy and appliances are energy efficient. We are doing what we can to be environmentally friendly.
