The Berney Arms, Barton Bendish, Norfolk: stay at a family run inn.
With spring just around the corner, there’s no need to go abroad to enjoy good food, picturesque scenery and old world charm; it’s to be had right here at home in the tiny Norfolk village of Barton Bendish.
A bright star in a culinary corner of the country unrenowned for its creative cuisine, the excellent-value restaurant at the Berney Arms is proving to be quite a draw with the local foodies, reports the Daily Mail. Starters are around £5.50 and main courses between £10.95 and £18.95 and after dinner you can enjoy the easy-going charm of the bar over a nightcap.
The family run inn has five rooms in the converted stable block across the car park from the main house and the accommodation is spotlessly clean, rustic and refreshingly unpretentious. A double room with a small outside patio area costs just £65 a night for two people, including a hearty breakfast. It makes a great base for those wanting to relax in a quiet part of the country and explore the many charms that Norfolk has to offer.
