Autumn Approaching

Summer 2016 has been one to remember.  Punctuated by the odd heavy downpour of rain (some quite breathtaking in their magnitude) the weather has been generally very kind and continues to be so.  We have welcomed  fantastic guests from as afar away as New Zealand, Australia, The USA…….many just here visiting local family and friends.

We wished we had more suites as we are already having to turn bookings away on a daily basis.  The realisation however, is that keeping it small and personal is often the key to success…especially in the hospitality industry.

We look forward to welcoming guests to ’61 on Folly’ for the upcoming Autumn and Winter period.

The Right Choice

We are now five months on from our official opening of ’61 on Folly’ Bed and Breakfast Suites and our experience during this time has only reinforced our belief that we made the right choice.  We have been blessed to play host to a multitude of delightful guests who have stayed with us for a variety of reasons from Weddings, Christenings, Funerals and 80th Birthday Celebrations to beer and train festivals and nothing more than just a real passion for Norfolk and Wymondham in particular.

One of the joys of running a B&B is the consistently positive interaction we have with people who chose to stay in a more personal and homely environment.  It seems that in choosing a B&B they are already willing to invest more of themselves in their stay and in us than had they chosen a regular hotel.  What a perfect opportunity therefore to thank all those wonderful people who have put their faith in us and been guests during this five month period.  With some already booked in for return trips we have more great times to come.

Erna and Dave.

Wow – our new look Health and Leisure Centre

Gym Photos 2 Gym Photos 3 Gym Photos 4 Gym shotsWe have been very excited by the reopening of Wymondham’s Health and Leisure Centre after its 3 million pound refurbishment.  With the addition of a Spa and Cafe, upgrade of the changing areas for the swimming pool as well as the addition of extra rooms for classes, the enlarging of the existing Gym area,  and an increase in the space and number of machines it has certainly been worth the wait.  As regular users, its proximity a mere 4 minute walk away means it is easy for us to incorporate it into our day.  Ideal too for our guests at ’61 on Folly’ who enjoy keeping fit as it also operates on a pay as you go basis.  Check it all out out on the link below

Spring is here

Blackbird Nesting 20160413_105750_resized

The fine weather we have been having recently has brought the courtyard and garden at 61 on Folly Bed & Breakfast Suites to life.  The Clematis and Wisteria are starting to bud and soon the courtyard and driveway will be awash with an array of vibrant pink, purple and white flowers.  The Lavender and Fuchsia are slowly waking from their winter dormancy and we have a blackbird nesting as she prepares to introduce her new offspring to the Norfolk air.  It really is a very special time of year.
