  • "Lovely place with a well enclosed garden off the drive ideal for people with dogs."

    As we visited in January we could not make use of the Gazebo with the barbecue but should be great in the summer. Some road noise whilst in the garden but didn't bother us. Heating via individual electric heaters which was OK and the problem with one of them was quickly resolved by Gary providing an additional heater. The place was nice and warm even in winter. One minor issue was the laminated flooring was a little slippy for our dogs but will probably not be an issue with others. Very comfortable large bed in the main bedroom. We would definitely recommend and will definitely go back.

    Hi, thank you for fantastic comments! We are in the process of upgrading the heating system, as it was getting on a bit...a bit like me! Would be great to see you again, if you decide to return. Gary and Mandy. Property Owner

    Hi, thanks for your feedback. We have since added a 2nd lamp and will look into a dimmer switch or smart bulbs so guests can have a better choice of light levels. Thanks, Gary and Mandy. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage with all the extra amenities you'd need for a family somehow fitted in (washer / dryer, cafetiere, good sized fridge-freezer, extra cosy blankets, a few toys and puzzles, DVD player)."

    The beds were super comfy, and the garden was great for the dog (fully enclosed) with a dog waste bin provided too. Enough room for a relatively large crate in the lounge if you use one. Lovely welcome pack on arrival and the owners were friendly, but also left us to it unless we needed anything. Never felt any intrusion of privacy despite being set behind their house. Long Sutton is a lovely small town and we had trips to Norfolk beaches easily enough. Local Spar well stocked, and Maguire's pie and mash/ roast take aways were just what we needed after a day on the beach.

    Massive king sized bed. Lots of hot water. Fully equipped kitchen. Big fridge freezer. Enjoyed going to the coast for a spring time walk out. Local spar shop was excellent and nearby. Garden for the dog was safe and secure. Big drive to turn car around in. Would go back and highly recommend the Barn.

    It underpromised and over delivered for us. The garden was a gem, both for us to sit out in and relax on the recliners, and our 2 dogs who loved exploring the borders of this well established, fenced garden. The owner's dog was lovely, and didn't deserve our 2 barking at him! The owners were friendly and helpful. Good location to visit Sandringham (about 30 mins away) and Hunstanton (about 40 mins away). Would recommend and return :)

  • "What a lovely 'Gem' of a place this is."

    Owners made us feel very welcome and were not round ever five minutes, this made it feel like home from home. The Barn is very well equipped and if you think you have forgotten something, it will probably be there. With knowing the area very well as we use to life in the next village (Sutton Bridge), this was the perfect base for us to catch up with family and friends. The Barn is split over two floors, with nice medium sized kitchen-diner, lounge and handy toilet on the ground floor. Two bedrooms and bathroom upstairs. Off road parking and use of the garden is another bonus with good outside lighting. Free Wi-Fi and fast internet connection would be great for any modern family staying here. Not far away from a shop with free cash machine and Long Sutton village centre, all within easy walking distance. There is lovely public house about 100 yards away. One thing that is for sure, is that we will be staying here again.

    The cottage is as described which is a lot more than can be said for some places we have stayed. The owners are just next door but don,t bother you. We have two large dogs and the cottage has hard floors so that worked well. There is a stair gate to prevent dogs going upstairs. Its very handy for the town. We would be happy to stay there again.

    Excellent facilities. Lovely garden. We normally go to Norfolk and decided to try the other side of the Wash. Loved Frampton Marsh and Gibraltar Point. Enjoyed the Ark and Lincolnshire Wildlife Park. The barn was conveniently situated near enough these but also made the Norfolk bird reserves accessible. Note: directions = if you are coming from the north, the McDonald's roundabout is the third roundabout showing Long Sutton on the A17.
