“Perfect for what we wanted”
Reviewed 13 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

I booked the barn for bridesmaids to stay in for our daughter's wedding so didn't stay there myself but they were all impressed with the barn and facilities and enjoyed their stay there. It lived up to expectations.

“Lovely spacious barn, home from home”
Reviewed 25 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

My husband and our 2 dogs had a lovely time at the barn. Lots of space outside for the dogs to run around. The kitchen is well equipped too!
We hired one of the recommended caterers and had family join us one evening too, still had plenty of space and we all enjoyed having a go on the piano!
Hopefully, we'll be back!

Reviewed 25 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Fantastic week in Virginia barn, the layout was perfect for our two year old twins, both sets of grandparents and the family chocolate Labrador! Kitchen was very well equipped (even down to plastic cutlery for the girls!), place was very clean and tidy, overall very happy with the place

Myself,my partner and our friend stayed here for a short break at the end of June. This place has spoiled all other holidays for me. The setting was peaceful and the barn itself was amazing.we had fantastic weather which only added to this dream break. We had a BBQ everyday without the washing up worry as there is a dishwasher.truly the most relaxing holiday I have ever had. Only one moment of stress which was finding the place as sat nav had other ideas?

“50th celebrations”
Reviewed 7 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Highly recommend this property. Perfect place to celebrate a special occasion with good friends. Close to Thetford Forest for Go Ape and Segway and for a lovely walk. Walked over to a neighbouring village to the local pub which we would recommend as well. Got a caterer(Emma Biggs Catering mentioned in the information) in for the Saturday night who was brilliant. No need for taxis and this cut the alcohol bill!! It was a weekend of good food and wine, good company, adventure and a great setting.

“Great week-end in a really lovely Barn”
Reviewed 16 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Virginia Barn as a surprise weekend for my 60th Birthday. I knew nothing of it until we actually arrived on the Friday evening. By then the BBQ was going and we settled very quickly for a good meal. Throughout the week-end the weather was outstanding and we spent most of the time sitting outside relaxing, reading and chatting together. The only time we left the estate was to have a look around Diss which was a relaxing couple of hours. The Barn itself has been converted to a very high specification and is also very comfortable. One very minor concern was the top bunk seemed very high, with no guard and we had a concern with our son sleeping that high. That said it is a minor suggestion and certainly does not distract from a wonderful weekend. I even played the piano with my daughters singing together which again just adds to the memories of the week-end.
I had a quick look around the rest of the estate without going into any of the buildings and the other Barn and main house all look well worth a stay, depending on the numbers of people staying.
My only other suggestion would be the addition of some nice relaxing chairs for the garden. As I said the weather was so good, we would have appreciated the ability to recline and relax!
Thanks to all concerned, we had a great time together.
