“Best holiday home in England!”
Reviewed 8 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

This is our 5 year at Rookery Barns. We always stay in Kestrel Barn.
It really is a home from home for us. We always bring our dog & are made to feel so welcome by Ken & Nicola.
The welcome basket was excellent (with a few extras!)
I also asked Ken for a particular DID which was there last year. He kindly spoke to Nicola & she bought it round for me (excellent customer service!)
The hot tub was amazing & it is not overlooked by the road. I walk outside on the road & you can't see into the garden... unless you were 8 feet tall. So it was very relaxing.... moat nights I didn't want to get out!
The barn is furnished to a high standard.
Can't wait to return again & feel chilled out!!!

“Excellent Accomodation and Location”
Reviewed 3 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Came here just for a long weekend with partner. The barn was lovely inside and out, clean and tidy throughout. The bathroom was gorgeous with a lovely big bath. Everything you could ask for was provided, including a welcome basket and tablets for the washing machine and dishwasher. One thing to note is a bit of a lack of privacy for the hot tub, as anyone walking along the road could just look over the wall and watch you in the tub. This is only a minor thing however. I would recommend this barn to anyone as its in a good location with the beach only minutes away by foot and a few local pubs.

We are pleased you enjoyed our Barn's facilities and we appreciate your kind comments.
Reference your comment regarding the private, secure walled garden at the rear of the barn. A quiet country lane does run along side this area but no one can see into this rear courtyard from the road, with out first climbing up a grass bank and then looking over the wall.There is a raised deck area in this courtyard for guests to view over the wall and watch the lovely sunsets across the open countryside to the west.

Kind regards

This was our first time to Norfolk and in self catering. The barn was well equipped and beautifully kept. Weather was great. Lots of dog friendly pubs. Well worth a visit.

“Lovely Holiday Destination and Excellent Accommodation”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Kestrel Barn accommodation is first class and a lovely place to stay and relax. spotlessly clean and well finished inside. Great hot tub beside deck in rear garden. We unreservedly recommend Rookery Barn Holidays.
Great location to stay and visit all of North Norfolk coastline and the Broads. Short walk to sea front and beach from where one can walk for miles. We had dogs and found the area to be very dog friendly with access to a good food pub, cafe and chip shop all just a short walk from Rookery Barn.
Easy driving to visit all the Norfolk coastline and Broads from Rookery Barn.
Will definitely stay at Rookery Barn Holidays again.

“Fab stay at Norfolk”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We have just returned from a fantastic week at Kestrel Barn. Ken and Nicola welcomed us and we around when we needed them. The barn is absolutely gorgeous. Really high standard, So
clean, had everything we needed.
We had great weather which meant plenty of days on the beach. We saw seals! We ate in the barn or had fish and chips so can't comment on local pubs etc. We went up inside the light house at Happisburgh which we loved.
Overall, great week. Gorgeous clean high quality barn with friendly owners. Thank you x

Reviewed 20 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Fantastic property in a peaceful location within easy walking distance to the beach and pubs. We had a fantastic stay, Ken and Nicola have created a wonderful home from home with everything you could wish to find. Beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The hot tub was an excellent addition enjoyed by the whole family. Our welcome basket was a great touch. Would highly recommended Kestrel Barn and gladly stay again.
