“Comfortable and convenient”
Reviewed 27 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018

Two of us stayed here for a week in this lovely conversion. It was clean and well equipped. The garden does now seem to be enclosed and we enjoyed sitting in it. As we are early risers we didn't even notice the road noise that others have commented on. The welcome pack of bread rolls, tea loaf, jam and milk was a lovely and useful surprise. The shower was good and powerful though we had trouble with the soap dish which was part of the pole fitting as it seemed to be fitted in the wrong place, didn't hold the soap and kept hitting us in the face! We would have liked a couple of blankets for the night as it was a little cooler than we are used to. A small table to use with the garden chairs was needed to hold the beer - can't risk it spilling in the grass! The local pub just metres away was everything we needed and the menu was just right for us. Their Fruits de Mer was a joy. The local antiques shop was worth a visit and we bought a few inexpensive items there. The steam train from Holt to Sheringham was soothing and nostalgic.

“So much more than expected”

A delightful cottage that photos don't do justice to. Extremely well equipped and immaculately clean and tidy. We have had a fabulous fortnight in this beautiful barn with two teenagers and two dogs and we have loved every minute of it. Would definitely come again and would definitely recommend to others. Loved the unexpected milk, tea, coffee, muffins and biscuits. Very welcome after a long journey.
Really well placed for Fakenham, Kings Lynn, Hunstanton, Brancaster, Ely, the Lavender Centre, dog friendly beaches, and so much more. The village is beautiful, the chippy is excellent value and fresh, fresh, cod. The pub opposite serves a delicious steak too!
Felt relaxed from the day we arrived, despite a couple of hiccups - on those, the local vets were outstanding, as was the formula one garage in Kings Lynn.

“Clean & tidy”
Reviewed 20 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The barn is very clean and tidy. We travelled with my parents, our 16 month old daughter & our dog. Slight niggles, not negatives, just points to be aware before you book:-
1. There is no enclosed garden for the dog, there is a very nice grassed garden with trees , a patio type area with seating and a gravel area for parking but not an enclosed area to just let your dog free, we had to take ours out on his lead as there is a busy road.
2. The road is quite noisey in the main bedroom
3. The whole building creaks, this was only a problem when our baby was trying to sleep
4. There are a lot of spiders, it must be noted that this will be due to the area and the trees etc
5. The toilet seats do not stay up this was a problem for both male and female alike.
6. The owners home is very very close, you have to walk passed there windows to get in and out of the barn.
These points are just minor niggles.
The building was also painted while we where staying which seemed a little odd that the owners would choose a time when guests where in to have the building painted.

On the upside

1. It was very good value for money
2. The big bedroom bed is very comfy
3. The 'welcome' tray of tea and milk is a very nice helpful touch
4. The barn is tastefully decorated
5. Everything you could need is provided, towels, fridge, freezer, iron, fan, alarm clock, hairdryer etc etc
6. A very nice pub is about half a minute walk away for food and drinks
7. Local shops are not far away and can be easily walked
8. Ample parking

All in all the barn is very nice, very warm, tidy, clean and inviting. We would recommend a stay to our friends

“Clean, comfortable and well-equipped”
Reviewed 26 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We enjoyed our stay as the Barn was attractively decorated and very well equipped..Huge, comfortable, king sized bed, big kitchen, big new TV. Handy downstairs extra loo and sink. The noisy road didn't bother us in the main bedroom but may have in the smaller room if you had four staying. Nice, helpful owners. Good food at pub a few houses up.

“Noisy Road”

Clean, and functional.
Unfortunately it is situated on a busy and noisy road, the traffic starts up very early in the morning. The garden only becomes enclosed if the main drive gate is closed and to be honest it was an inconvenience. The garden whilst not overlooked is a bit untidy.
