78 quid a night for the Lifeboat Inn is a bit steep for my blood - I could rent a two bed cottage for an entire week for the cost of a weekend there
Suitable pub-based accommodation does seem surprisingly thin on the ground. There does not seem to be many pubs with more than two or three rooms. May need to use an hotel or B&B - sacrilege I know, but needs must... Still, as long as it has a licence...
Do we know where we will be based and what we will be visiting? Until then, it's not much point looking for accommodation. Looking at the map, all roads lead from Norwich, but you could end up driving 30 miles to Southwold for example so for one weekend, probably best to concentrate on one corner?
As usual, I can probably make any date.
