We have a generous forecourt and Orchard House has ample off-street parking that is not visible from the road.


Easy to find, Orchard House is on the main A1088 that runs from Woolpit (junction 47 of the A14) North through Norton (and eventually to Thetford).

Travelling North from the A14 you will, after the village sign, reach a crossroads with the Petrol Station/shop and 'The Dog' Pub on your right with Orchard House a further 100 yards on your left.

There are hanging signs reading “Orchard House” and “Bed & Breakfast”.

If you are coming from the Thetford direction we are 400 yards further on from the road on the right signposted to 'Thurston' and 'Elm Farm Business Park' If you are using SatNav, you may find that it will place us 400yds to the North of our actual position.
