Byards Leap is a 'jumbly' sort of place, with a Bubble Car Museum right next door and the Viking Way long-distance footpath on our doorstep. We are en-route for the East and Norfolk Coastlines, but still have our very own local attractions for all types of activities.

Byards Leap Country Kitchen has existed for over 100 years, believed to be the site on which the hut sat where Old Meg the witch lived. Although the Country Kitchen has kept its outward appearance, over the years, many changes have been made to the internal rooms, and, of course, the kitchen is now all stainless steel with modern appliances.

"The room was very comfortable with a huge bed, LCD TV, minibar and well-stocked bathroom. Tea & coffee making facilities were plentiful with lots of tea, coffee, milk & biscuits. I would definitely stay here again if I would going to an event on the base and would recommend to others."

"A beautiful room, facilities and breakfast. Could not have been better - have stayed in worse 4 star hotels!"
