Guest Reviews


    • “Peaceful rural retreat”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “A newly converted barn with modern furnishing, well equipped. The lovely barn is decorated really well and has thick walls so we were never cold. The setting is very peaceful, overlooking the Norfolk countryside. The barn is located on a very well maintained equestrian farm, the owners are friendly and gave us lots of good advice re. local pubs, shopping, days out. The location is in the heart of Norfolk and driving to the coast or Norwich gave us fantastic unspoilt views through lovely villages.”

    • “We had a very peaceful and relaxing holiday. The cottage was in a good place for visiting places like Cromer and Yarmouth, which were within an hours drive. Sitting on the patio during the day or in the evening just watching the birds in the fields or reading a book made it the most relaxing holiday we have had. Thanks again to the owners for a lovely retreat, will definitely be booking it next year.”

    Mrs Beach, Sheffield, September 2015

    Ms Williams, Maidstone, December 2014

    • “Really lovely place; we were made to feel very welcome by the owners and their various animals and pets. Perfect escape from the city and a great base to discover the area. Superbly done barn-conversion with high ceilings and exposed beams with ots of thoughtful touches to make the place even more welcoming. Had a comfy and roomy bed and the bathroom was good-sized with power shower and fine Egyptian towels! The kitchen was even big enough to cook a Christmas dinner! Lovely private patio with great views of the surrounding area. Highly recommend and would happily stay there again in the future. Perfect getaway for couples of all ages.”

    Mr Taylor, London, December 2014

    • “Fantastic barn conversion completed to a very high standard. Nice rural feel but not too far from towns. The owners had thought of everything in terms of equipment and supplies - even down to the tea and milk in the fridge. The small garden with table and chairs gave us a lovely place to sit to have breakfast and lunch in relative privacy. The horses in the stables always welcomed a visit and a chat!”

    Mr Watts, Newmarket, August 2014

    • “Lovely peaceful place to stay; conversion done to a high standard.”
