After much searching to find a place to stay using our 'unusual stays' voucher, we happened upon the Dairy Barns in Norfolk - and we were glad we did, as it was a lovely, relaxing stay. Combining a visit to see friends in Norwich with a 2-night break at this old converted dairy, we enjoyed a warm welcome from Jill (the owners' mum) and home made scones on arrival, plus plenty of good places to eat recommendations. You are right on Hickling Broad and minutes from big empty beaches - so the location is perfect.
The standard room and ensuite bathroom were huge and comfortable. While the breakfasts were fanastic and arrived exactly at the time we requested (the kitchen must be run with military precision!) Make sure you try the waffles with fruit - yum. The breakfast area is tastefully decorated and filled with flower arrangements (think they do flower arranging weekends). Would have loved to get married there, shame we've already made all of our plans :) One thing, it would be great to have a curved mirror on the road outside, so you can see traffic approaching from the right, as it is a blind turn out of the car park. Thanks for a wonderful stay, we will recommend you to others.
