Barnham Broom

Norwich, Norfolk

Double room

A contemporary golf and spa hideaway, set among 300 acres of river valley scenery in Norfolk - includes breakfast and three-course dinner

A low-rise cluster of red brick buildings among manicured golf lawns, trees and free countryside, Barnham Broom’s respectful low-key exterior houses contemporary Norfolk pampering inside.

Peacefully ensconced in the River Yare Valley a half hour west of Norwich, wake up to the sound of chirping birds and duck chatter on the lake before a calming couple of rounds of golf on the two championship courses, designed by acclaimed architects. Shrug off any city stress with holistic treatments and classic therapies in the spa, before a lazy afternoon happily padding between the heated indoor pool, Jacuzzi, steam room and sauna.

Rooms are sophisticated yet homely and the Brasserie at Barnham Broom showcases fresh Norfolk produce overlooking the gardens. Leave room for afternoon treats by the fire or on the glorious view-laden terrace at the Valley Bar.

If golf, spa-ing and eating all sound too sedate, book yourself in for tennis and squash classes and perhaps a curative treatment with the hotel’s sports massage and rehabilitation specialist. The Sports Bar also allows for plenty of fist-punching match glee thanks to its big screens.

Good to know

Please note that the fitness centre’s changing rooms are being refurbished between 27 February and 17 March. The swimming pool, sauna and steam room remain open during this time.
