“'We loved it'!”
Reviewed 17 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We (2 adults and 2 children) spent the weekend at Riverside Farm staying in The Retreat.

The barn is beautiful. Spacious, clean and with everything you could possibly need.

We felt at home the minute we arrived. We were greeted by Amanda who showed us to our barn.

The welcome tray of tea, coffee, biscuits, fresh eggs and milk was very much appreciated.

We all loved our stay on the farm. The children absolutely loved all the animals. They helped Andy feed them and got to walk the goats.

None of us wanted to leave and we will definitely be returning. Would recommend Riverside Farm to anyone.

Amanda and Andy - Thank you so much for making us all feel so welcome on your beautiful farm.

Nicola, Darren, Megan and Jack

“Beautiful house in a lovely setting”
Reviewed 1 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The retreat is a beautiful converted stable building that is fitted out to a really high standard. The kitchen had everything we needed, plenty of plates, cutlery, pots and pans etc. It was immaculately clean with care and thought given to the furnishings and linen.
Andy and Amanda were very welcoming, and couldn't have done more to make our stay comfortable and relaxing.
The setting is really lovely, our boys enjoyed the table tennis, swing ball and meeting all the animals. Within the grounds is a pond, with a canoe, again this was a real hit with our boys!
There are some lovely walks on the door step, we did part of a circular walk to Mattishall, enjoyed a couple of drinks in the pub and wandered back.
We had a really lovely stay and would definitely visit again.

“Wonderful and relaxing stay”
Reviewed 2 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Andy and Amanda have created a delightful haven. The Retreat was clean and very spacious and my two young children loved the animals, especially the baby rabbits that we almost came home with.

We came across this accommodation by chance and will certainly be returning, which seems to be the norm for those that come across this this accommodation.

“Family Weekend Break”
Reviewed 1 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Stayed for two nights with children and grandparents. Great location - anywhere in Norfolk is no more than 45 mins away. Good barn conversion, nicely decorated, clean and plenty of room. Well fitted kitchen and we also found a Chinese that delivered. Owners very friendly and helpful. Would stay again.
