Welcome to The Hare and Barrel Hotel, a charming 19th century property situated in the Norfolk district of Breckland. We offer a newly refurbished choice of sixteen guest rooms and are ideally set within easy reach of Thetford Forest Park, Swaffham and Dereham. The nearest town is Watton which traces its history back to the Doomsday Book and we are well placed for exploring the pretty villages of Norfolk. The historic city of Norwich can also be found just a forty minute drive away. We try and create a traditional family atmosphere and our property retains plenty of charming features. Ten of our guest rooms have been converted from the original coach house and stables and facilities provided for guests include a comfortable lounge bar, games room, conservatory, restaurant and partially covered patio. There is also a lawn beer garden with wooden tables and seating provided for guests to relax in.
Our ensuite guest rooms have been tastefully decorated in almost a Mediterranean style and are presented as single, double, twin, triple and family accommodation for up to four people. The rooms are set adjacent to a courtyard which is ablaze with colour in the summer and sets the mood for a relaxing break. Our popular on site restaurant serves an excellent range of locally sourced produce, wines from around the world and a delicious Sunday lunch. Non residents and children are welcome to dine in the restaurant.
Free parking and free Wi-Fi service are provided at our hotel. All guests room are non-smoking.
