The pastel blue exterior of Belle Vue Guest House in Denver near Downham Market.

Belle Vue Guest House

1 Sluice Road, Downham Market

A stunning 18th century Grade II listed guest house situated in the heart of Denver village, Norfolk.

Belle Vue is a beautiful 18th century Grade II listed building standing proud in the centre of Denver village, Norfolk.

Home to the Wardle family, the guest house has a total of five spacious en-suite bedrooms – all tastefully transformed, separate from the owners’ living quarters and each having its own unique theme.

If you prefer the modern or the traditional, there is something at Belle Vue to suit everyone. Breakfast is served in a delightful room that looks out on to the war memorial and village church. The room has an inglenook fireplace, perfect for taking the chill off those frosty mornings. For the Summer mornings, the room opens to the quaint terrace, the ideal setting for reading the paper whilst enjoying a leisurely breakfast.

The welcoming village of Denver has two pubs; two golf courses; fishing lakes; a sailing club; a village general store and post office; and, until very recently, one of the last working windmills in Norfolk but is still an attraction. The area is the very popular for walking and cycling routes as Denver is a stop off on Fen Rivers Way.
