“Fab cottage in great location with excellent facilities”
Reviewed 2 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Would recommend this property to anyone! Owners were very friendly and helpful from start to finish. The property is home from home and appreciated the special touches of providing us with toilet rolls, washing up liquid, tea towels, dishwasher tabs and even a bottle of milk for us to enjoy a brew when we arrived!
The property was beautifully decorated and well kept, the bed were comfortable and towels were provided for use in the bathrooms. The property was warm throughout despite the chilly October evenings and mornings, through use of well functioning storage heaters.
We love Norfolk and the location was perfect for us to visit the places we like to when we visit this part of the world. The kids in particular loved the on-site pool and I was very happy that our property was right opposite so I could supervise the children whilst doing other things.
At the end of a long day, we enjoyed our movie nights courtesy of the many DVD's the owners provided for us to borrow! We had popcorn and snacks so it felt like we were at the cinema every night!
An all in all peaceful, fun and safe environment which everyone enjoyed, including our two Jack Russells!
Thanks Andrew and Caroline - we had a great time and will definitely return in the future.

“PERFECT WEEKEND BREAK”

Lovely spacious 3 bed barn conversion clean and cosy with everything provided. Pool and games room an added bonus which kept our little ones amused, very close to Fakenham for shopping - spent a day at Holkham Beach which is fantastic and Wells on Sea. Would also recommend Sculthorpe Mill for food we took the scenic route from the Barn which only took 5 minutes.

“A cosy homely barn .....”
Reviewed 1 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

person found this review helpful

This is a very well equipped and cosy barn conversion with a wonderful indoor pool just 20 yards away and a playroom with snooker and table tennis, very good for teens I should think.
We stayed with two boys, a six and three and a half year old, who were so sad to be leaving... one of them said they would like to stay 'forever'! The pool was a wonderful draw every afternoon , and even an early morning swim before the children left.
The barn was really well equipped with everything we needed except a freezer ! There is only a small chest freezer, a communal one shared by 4 or 5 barns. And strangely it is situated in the washing / drying room! A fridge/ freezer sited in the East Barn behind the front door would be wonderful...... And will save me having to walk in the rain to get my ice and lemon for my gin & tonic on our next visit!
Another great thing in the barn was a wonderful collection of books, games and DVDs provided by Andrew... We were lucky with the weather but on a wet day they would have been very useful. The welcome pack of a pint of milk seemed rather strange.
It was a great holiday in a lovely place, very close to lots of wonderful attractions including the beaches and the wonderful Pensthorpe and Castle Rising to name but two.
