Perfect place to stay
Had a weekend break at Decoy Barn and we could not have asked for better. The owners were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were lovely, clean and comfortable and the breakfasts were fab. We are definitely planning a return visit.

Lovely Stay
I was warmly welcomed by the lady of the house upon arrival and shown to my room were she prepared a lovely pot of tea and a chocolate muffin. The room was very clean comfortable, with a moderately sized ensuite bathroom with shower, all well appointed and working. There is a kettle with a choice of tea bags and coffee in the room. Parking was good within the drive of the house. The B&B is easy to find in Fritton because of the large blue sign at the road side. As requested I ordered breakfast the night before, in the morning it was a lovely cooked full english affair and great too. The only down side is lack of mobile phone signal (that is the area nothing to do with the B&B) and the wifi signal was not very strong in the room, so not much use for business but good enough for facebook and emails on the phone. On the whole a lovely B&B with very friendly couple running the place and would easily recommend it to all.
