About Jo Conway

Jo and Robert live in the main House. Jo is an artist and Robert is an Optometrist working in his own business in Norwich. We have lived in Glenthorne House for 23 years.

Garden House was built in the garden of the main house in 1997 for Jo's mother who lived there for the last 11 years of her life.

Why Jo Conway chose Norfolk & The Broads

Lovely purpose built cottage with south facing french doors over looking gorgeous garden.

Perfect setting with charming hosts!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from an 8 day stay at the Garden House. It was just perfect for us. The setting is beautiful - we loved looking out (and sitting out) in Jo and Robert's beautiful flower and herb garden. We also enjoyed the salads and strawberries from the garden. The house is well-designed, and we were immensely comfortable. We highly recommend this cottage!
