My family and I have just returned from a week away in North Norfolk, staying at East Barn. We were a party of four adults and two children aged three and one. The barn itself is lovely, traditional and has two bathrooms, so not a problem with six people sharing. It is in a good location for exploring the North Norfolk coast, and there is a large Morrison's just five minutes drive away. The pool came in handy on a couple of rainy afternoons. It isn't deep, so ideal if you have younger children, and my three year old could safely stand up in the shallow end. The only thing that let East Barn down for me was it's level of cleanliness. It is a dog-friendly accommodation, but I would not recommend staying in this barn if you don't have one with you (my parents had brought theirs). It does have a distinct doggy odour; that many might not mind...and there were lots of dog hairs that hadn't been hoovered up. A shame, because it's only a small detail, but something that I personally noticed.

Thank you very much for your positive comments. I am so sorry the cleaning was not up to scratch on this occasion. You absolutely would not want other peoples dog hairs on the carpet, and I can only apologise. I have passed your comments on to our housekeeper, and this problem should not occur again. Thank you for your feedback.

“One of the best holiday rentals in the UK! Loved the Cottage and Stay!”
Reviewed 10 September 2013 for a stay in February 2013

When we booked the cottage on a very short notice, we did not know what to expect and arrived late evening at Fakenham. First impressions, great looking place, well maintained, and the extra perks like the pool, snooker tables and the farm were an advantage.
We had a pleasant stay inspite of the weather and found the place very convenient. Must go, Must stay!

“Fantastic accomodation and location”
Reviewed 1 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Have stayed at east barn for 7 years in a row. Haven't got a bad word to say about it. The accomodation has been perfect and continues to be even though the "kids" are now young adults. We all still love the pool, games room and the chance to play family cricket and football in the field. It is the perfect place to explore the beautiful surrounding countryside and coast.

“Fantastic stay”
Reviewed 17 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Had a great time a the Barn. First impression was "wow". Felt so homely from the moment we walked through the door. The barn is in a lovely courtyard, and inside it is very well laid out, with dining room table and living area, with kitchen to the rear and a shower room on the ground floor, and 3 good sized bedrooms upstairs, 1 double, 1 twin and 1 bunk room, with bathroom across the landing. The open brickwork, and the wooden cladding on the walls on the landing give this place an authentic barn feel, and looks spectacular!

Opposite the barn is the fantastic heated swimming pool! Spent a lot of time in there, splashing around, playing ball. The pool is fairly shallow, around 3ft at the shallow end and 4ft 5ish in the deep end, making it very suitable for children. The pool is also a very good size, approx 20m in length, 7m wide, which was more than enough for the 2 of us. The pool is communal, so dont mind jumping in with your neighbours :)

Attached to the pool room is the games room, with full sized snooker table, 2 full size English Pool tables, 2 table-tennis tables and table football, all included with the price.

Overall we were impressed with the barn and complex, and would definitely return sometime in the future.
