“Real Norfolk Gem”
Reviewed 17 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This is the first time my wife and I have used a Holiday Rental in the U.K. Well, weren't disappointed. We instantly felt at home and shortly after our arrival we were welcomed by the owner Mandy.
To us the mark of having had a good place to stay is a sadness to leave, and of course we were sad to leave. But needs must and we had to inevitably move on.
For our needs it was perfect. Good transport links, everything you need in your accomodation for comfortable stay. Quiet and pleasant surroundings and plenty to do.
You are made to feel welcome by hosts Mandy and Doug. During our stay the weather was very, very kind and the Sun shone every day. What more do you need?
5 Star! Leave relaxed and refreshed.

“Fantastic Location superb hosts”
Reviewed 12 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Stayed here for a week and can highly recommend this lovely property. Spotlessly clean, fully equipped, ideally situated for exploring North Norfolk. Within walking distance from Sandringham. The hosts are knowledgeable, friendly and very attentive. Just a short walk to Spar shop, chip shop on corner and lovely walks straight from the doorstep. The natives are so friendly as well. Lovely beaches and seaside towns all a short drive away.

“Fabulous apartment”
Reviewed 20 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

A lovely, modern one bed roomed apartment with great facilities in a good location close to Sandringham. The owners are very helpful and left much appreciated provisions for us on our arrival. This was a very nice touch. An ideal apartment for a couple looking to spend time in this beautiful part of the country. Use of the owners garden is an added bonus. I can highly recommended this property.

“Barn Cottage is an excellent, cosy base for exploring the local area”
Reviewed 15 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

person found this review helpful

If you're reading this, you're probably considering visiting North Norfolk and if so, we can personally recommend Barn Cottage and its welcoming hosts, Mandy and Doug. The accommodation is very clean, cosy and well-organised and the bed has a brand-new luxurious mattress. We were able to walk / cycle / run every day on the convenient tracks that criss-cross Sandringham Country Park, just minutes from the cottage. The owners' huge garden is also available for guest use, and there are at least 2 good pubs within 10 minutes' walk. We cooked most of our meals in the well-appointed kitchen and were pleased to find bread, milk and wine in a welcome pack when we arrived.

We will definitely be back and thank Mandy and Doug very much for making our stay such a success.

“What a lovely cottage”
Reviewed 28 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We were recommended Barn Cottage by a work colleague and were really pleased we followed his advice. The cottage was just right for the two of us, being really well presented, really clean and in a great location.
We were able to visit many places over the weekend as Dersingham is an ideal location to explore the coast and countryside. Many thanks to Mandy for her hospitality and the extra touches when we arrived. Milk, fresh bread etc.
We are already planning to return.

“Welcoming cosy and spotless bolthole with so much to do”
Reviewed 20 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

A gem of a small cottage with a warm welcome from Mandy with milk, bread, wine, beer and plenty of local guides. Spotless and cosy with a touch of luxury and WiFi. We brought a tandem and enjoyed several rides in the area plus exploring gems of Norfolk churches and really good food in local pubs and the good chippy on the corner. Keen birdwatchers are spoilt for choice locally. Even we saw curlews, barn owls, an egret, kites and waders too numerous to mention. Do not miss the mass roost at Snettisham. We stayed 5 nights and ran out of time with so many NT houses, historic houses and English heritage sites to explore.
