Anna and James come from a catering background and first met when they were both working for McLaren on the Formula 1 circuit ten years ago, travelling the World and catering for the culinary needs of the McLaren drivers, mechanics and support team. They have always dreamed of owning their own hotel and venue and the Norfolk Mead is the realisation of that dream. Their expertise is catering for private and corporate business and they have built up an enviable reputation with clients around the UK and overseas. Anna Duttson Events continues to run successfully from Norfolk, catering for private and corporate events all over UK and Europe.

You will sail through breathtaking scenery and wildlife or can stop off for drinks in one of the many welcoming riverside pubs or lunch on deck with one our freshly prepared picnic hampers. Bookings from April to September (our boat is off the water and wrapped-up warm in our boating shed during the winter months). Please book to avoid disappointment. Tariff Half day boat hire - £90 (based on 4 hours) Full day boat hire - £165 (based on 8 hours) Dog owners please note that dogs cannot be taken onto our boat. Sorry but no exceptions.
At the heart of the Norfolk Mead is our walled garden, with lush lawns, rose bushes and a large sheltered terrace to ensure you can enjoy Afternoon Tea or pre-dinner drinks in a group or in private to suit your mood. The walled garden is lovingly tended by our groundsman to keep the flowerbeds in bloom throughout the spring and summer - we hope you enjoy spending time there as much as we do.
We welcome pets at the Norfolk Mead Hotel but unfortunately they can only stay in some of our rooms: Juniper, Crab Apple & Sweet Chestnut. Also please be aware before you book that dogs and pets are not allowed in the main hotel or on our boat.
Pets are charged at £20 per night and we do operate a well-behaved pet policy (any damages caused by pets must be paid before you check-out)
Should your pet be particularly noisy, you may be asked to vacate the room so other guests are not unduly affected.
