The Thatched House luxury bed and breakfast, situated in the heart of the Brecklands, close to Watton and Thetford Forest, is in a perfect location for exploring this beautiful part of Norfolk.

A delightful 16th century thatched house, offering Bed & Breakfast accommodation, situated on the edge of the tranquil, Breckland's village of Thompson.

Bedrooms are beamed and full of character. There are two twin bedrooms on the ground floor, with access to the beautiful gardens and private bathroom facilities. The double room has an en-suite and boasts a fabulous period brass and iron bed. All rooms have tea/coffee making facilities as well as TV.

The village of Thompson is situated approx three miles from the market town of Watton. Ideally situated as a base for visiting the other nearby towns of Swaffham, Thetford, Dereham and Attleborough, as well as Norwich, Cambridge and Ely. Thompson is very popular with visitors who wish to explore the famous 'Peddars Way' walk, or the Pingo Trail (a feature left from the last Ice age!)
