Accommodation Description:

The Ostrich Inn, an impressive 16th century coaching Inn. The joys of the English countryside, the wonders of rural life. The rich, clean air that revives and invigorates.

Lush greens, reds and browns blended to perfection along Peddars Way we arrive weary in body and in mind at Castle Acre.

An atmosphere of calm envelopes us and at the village green with its towering Ents, a blessed vision appears before us in the shape of an Inn. 'The Ostrich Inn'. We enter and take our rest.

The Ostrich has stood here on the green for over four hundred years and it looks great. Slightly haunted with walls and ceilings askew it still provides the goods. Since new custodians took over in 2009 The Ostrich has undergone a complete transformation.

The style is comfy, old England with a dash of the medieval. The decor is lavish and warm, the bar is bright and fully loaded, the larder well stocked. The rooms are luxurious and keenly priced.

The ambiance is just right. The garden has been beautifully landscaped, its become a secure happy place for all. Parents can relax in the knowledge their children are not climbing things or getting lost.

They are cocooned in an enclosed space with just a sandpit and a beach hut. A bit of the beach brought to Castle Acre. Huge brollies shade you and a waiter will bring you anything you desire.

Huge car park at rear. Oliver Cromwells grandmother propped up the bar in the late 15 hundreds whilst teaching her grandson the finer points of regicidal dictatorship perhaps. Eat, drink, relax, enjoy an unrivaled atmosphere created by its present owners.

The combination of food, wine, beer and hospitality is not to be found anywhere else in the county. Experience and a desire to create and inspire have culminated in a product that will continue to surprise. A team of people have been carefully chosen for their skill and enthusiasm to ensure your experience at the Ostrich is a good one.
