And the Broad House Hotel in Wroxham is the best small hotel, while there was a double success for East Runton, where Incleborough House was the best bed and breakfast / guest house, and Stable Cottage best for self catering.
Simon Egan, co-founder of Bewilderwood, said: 'Bewilderwood is a unique attraction which offers something very special to visitors.
