I miss out on the cooked breakfast due to an early start but there is always a selection of cereals yoghurts and fruit juice for the early riser. I am already booked for my nest visit!'

'I stayed in Old Thorn Barn for attending Lotus Driving courses. Greeted by very friendly owner on my arrival. I needed to make some purchase from the supermarket but I didn\'t drive, owner was very kind and drove me to the nearby supermarket. Room was clean and tidy, comfortable , quiet and happy stay for three nights. I also saw a Lotus super car at the parking lot! Location was amazing, very close to Lotus Driving Academy and factory. If you are attending Lotus events, this is the place you should stay. Another Lotus event attendee also stayed here and we became friends. Breakfast was very good. A variety of cereals, juices, fruits and flexible choice of breakfast. I highly recommend Old Thorn Barn. Will definitely come back if I visit Hethel/Norwich again in the future.'

Lovely stay - close to Lotus
5 stars 5

'We booked Old Thorn Barn on several recommendations from within the Lotus community, and were very happy with our choice. It is the nearest accommodation to the Lotus factory, where we had booked a factory tour. Danny and Carol were great hosts, very friendly and welcoming, but also respecting our privacy. The accommodation, in a small outbuilding, was excellent. Very clean and comfortable. A good selection of tea, coffee, and biscuits was available in the room, and we also had access to a small communal kitchen with a microwave and fridge - useful for snacks and keeping the wine chilled! We wouldn\'t hesitate to return in the future, and highly recommend the Old Thorn Barn.'
