We stayed at Nicols Barn with my parents earlier this month- the barns are beautiful and would definitely recommend to those that wish to visit norfolk. Decorated beautifully, with added extras such as underfloor heating, wifi and woodburning stove. The extra touches such as the flowers and wine that were left for us made our stay even more special.
Have already booked to go back in October with other family members.
Four adults stayed here for a week. Fantastic barn style accommodation. Exceeded our expectations. The attention to detail was first class.

From first pulling into the drive my husband and I both commented that we loved the look of the place. On entering, we weren't disappointed. Sunshine floods into the main living area, which is really stylishly designed with quality furniture and fittings. I am notoriously difficult to please and this lived up to expectations. The French doors open onto a lovely, sunny cottage garden with a BBQ.
The welcome gifts of wine, flowers and chocolate were a nice touch.
We were so lucky with the weather and had a BBQ one evening, the local budgens has a good supply of food and drink. The property has plenty of kitchen items like knives, chopping boards, pots and pans etc if you do want to cook.
I loved having a hand held Dyson, which was really useful (especially for the odd squished spider!)
The TV and sound system were great and it was a real treat for my daughter to have a TV in her room.
We absolutely loved the local area. We didn't have time to wander in Holt, but there were some nice shops and takeaways/restaurants.
We went cycling at Holkham, which was beautiful and well worth doing (but beware, the beach is quite a walk and the sea is even further once you reach it!). Crabbing at Blakeney was so much fun (and easy with a net!) Wells is lovely and has a massive kids play park. We did the seal trip to Blakeney point, which was worth doing (but book in advance).
We ate at the Wiveton Bell, which was lovely (and very pleasant staff).
We still feel there's loads to see and do for our next visit... The north Norfolk railway, Cromer, Bewilderwood to name a few.
A really enjoyable break, we'll definitely be back.
