About Bumble Barns Luxury B&B

Bumble Barn Luxury B&B is a complex of three gorgeous suits in the heart of Norfolk,  Bumble Barn is accessed by a private unmade road and set the quiet rural location of Tunstead.  Whilst it is a quiet, peaceful village Tunstead is only 5 miles from the market towns of Stalham and North Walsham and Wroxham.  Day boats can be hired at Wayford Bridge, just 3 miles away. It’s also under 7 miles from the stunning Norfolk coastline. All of this means we really are perfectly located for those who want to experience all that this region has to offer. 

Our Suites

Feel spoiled in one of our three luxurious suites. Much larger than most 5 star hotel rooms, all have a comfy seating area, table and chairs and king size beds.  They were tastefully completed and refurbished in 2020 and have a spacious and luxurious feel.
Start the day with a refreshing shower in the large wet rooms before enjoying a hearty Norf9olk breakfast in your room or terrace.
All rooms open out onto a pretty enclosed lawned courtyard garden – a perfect place to relax on a warm summer evening


A hearty Norfolk breakfast at Bumble Barn Luxury B&B will get your day  off to a wonderful start and as a top class chef Paul’s breakfast won’t disappoint.  Abundant with local produce, some of the best in the country, a breakfast at Bumble Barn is a real treat.
An unhurried affair in our tasteful, comfortable dining room or outside on the lawn.
We are also proud to serve our wonderful afternoon teas – sandwiches, tasty savouries, homemade cakes and scones alongside your choice of beverage.  One thing is for sure between breakfast and afternoon tea you won’t leave us hungry!

Cookery School

Paul is keen to share his culinary expertise and runs his Norfolk Cookery School on a regular basis.   Learn how to cook from a master and wow your friends and family with your new found skill when you return home

What Our Guests Say

Lots To See And Do!

On The Water 

Discover a string of pretty coastal towns and villages including Cromer with its famous pier, Sheringham with the North Norfolk Railway and Sheringham Park.  Or maybe Cley with its marshland habitat, and Blakeney and Wells-next-the-Sea with their picturesque quays. For a slightly different waterside experience head to Wroxham, the gateway to the Norfolk Broads, where you can captain your own day launch or join a chartered tour and just let the world drift blissfully past. 

On Dry Land

History buffs will enjoy the Muckleburgh and Thursford Collections and the Felbrigg, Blickling, Holkham and Sandringham Estates, along with a trip to the medieval city of Norwich. The young at heart will also find much to love with lots of traditional seaside attractions, Amazonia Zoo and BeWILDerwood (4 miles away). Add in great walks and cycle routes, virtually from your doorstep, three great golf courses close by and fishing almost on-site, you really will have so much to do that you’ll have to come back just to fit it all in. Beach 6 miles. Shop 3 miles, pub and restaurant ½ mile.  Find out more….

Frequently Asked Questions

We do take dogs, yes – though we do respectfully ask that you keep them under control in shared areas and never leave them unattended in your room.

Our Norfolk Broads holiday cottages are perfectly situated for everything the area has to offer.  Just a few miles from the beaches and the Norfolk Broads are accessible from the end of the drive.  For details of our favourite things to do please go to our Plan Your Stay page

Of course!  Please complete the contact us form with your requirements (dates, numbers and combination of cottages) and we will come back to you with a quote.  We are happy to take larger parties and the whole site can sleep 16, however we prefer not to take stag parties as the village doesn’t really have the amenities for them. Yarmouth or Norwich are far more suitable.

There is ample, free, off road parking
