  • "Very enjoyable."

    Barn had everything we needed.

  • "A great stay in a property that is obviously cared for well by Claire and her team."

    There is a good wheelchair accessible room with en-suite on the ground floor but the barn would benefit from a wheelchair ramp at the front door to make access for wheelchair users a lot easier.

  • "This is a lovely property in a great rural location, and close to many landmarks and visitor attractions."

    The barn was just what we wanted for our family Easter weekend, 6 adults and 2 granddaughters aged 4 and 2. The property is very well equipped, was in very clean condition and we had lots of room for relaxing and having fun! If we had one negative comment it would be that the oven would have been a bit small if we had wanted to do a full cooked meal.

  • "A very relaxing, quiet stay in a lovely spacious and clean cottage."

    Absolutely perfect location to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and for us to enjoy plenty of walks in the countryside but also only a 15/20 minute drive to Kings Lynn if you feel the need to go shopping. A big shout-out to Claire who we had to contact for the key location - a really friendly lady that ensured the first impression really lasted.

  • "A very well equipped property with ample space and facilities for ten people."

    The only one slight issue was the oven,one small single oven wasn’t adequate for cooking for ten people.

  • "In general the facilities in the kitchen dining and seating areas were good ."

    If I was being very critical it would have been good to have a view from those windows rather than just a fence about 2 feet from the window . The layout was good and felt spacious even with 10 people. The bed in the en suite room was uncomfortable and would benefit from a new mattress. The location c 6 miles from Kings Lynn was excellent.

  • "A spacious property with everything you could possibly need so no need to take things just in case."

    The water was always hot but the showers were very slow, maybe just compared to ours at home. Let down however by a very dirty oven - that I cleaned the worse off of, otherwise I would not have wanted to use it.

    !) The rear Patio was disgusting and could not be used Despite this everyone agreed that they would stay there again,

  • "The holiday let was a converted farm building situated on a working farm."

    We were a family of 5 adults and 3 dogs so we had more than enough space in the Barn. 10 people could stay there and it still wouldn’t feel crowded. We had a fantastic week.The accommodation was very large and clean. We loved the open plan downstairs with large tables and comfortable sitting room. There was lots of info provided for us to read on places to visit etc which was useful. The enclosed garden area was secure and very safe which gave us peace of mind for the dogs. There was garden furniture and a barbecue which we didn’t get the opportunity to use as the weather wasn’t good enough unfortunately. There was amble parking spaces too as we had a total of 4 cars! I haven’t got any criticism of our stay at all. We were close enough to the beaches, everywhere that we wanted to visit was no more than a 30 min drive away. Lots of lovely pubs serving excellent food and all very dog friendly. Given the opportunity we would return for another break and I would highly recommend Hadleigh Farm Barn.

    This does seem like a short term problem and didnt stop us enjoying our time there

  • "Pros: House is lovely, very spacious, modern and clean."

    New carpets upstairs, large dining room table and amble seating in the lounge. 2 fridge freezers which was useful for large house. Cons: location quite far from beaches etc. The single oven was quite challenging when cooking for 9 people. A biggest problem which spoilt our week away at Hadleigh Farm Barn - We were inundated with flies; at least 20 were around the hob when we were cooking. You couldn’t put anything down without flies landing on it. It was an extreme hygiene issue. When we complained, the housekeeper had an electric fly zapper installed and brought round fly spray but it didn’t make much of a difference. On the last day, the lounge had over 200 flies and smelt like something had died!? When we were leaving on the Saturday morning, they found a dead pheasant in the wood burning stove.

  • "We enjoyed our first experience of this sort of holiday very much."

    We were very central and everywhere we wanted to go and see was only one hour drive away which when you have children with you is important. The barn was big enough for us all and the outside space very welcome. If we had one thing that was negative it was that there was a lot of flies inside the barn but fly spray had been provided to deal with this. We would recommend friends to try one of your holidays because of the interaction with us before we went especially with what has been going on in the world, the fact that even after arrangements had been made to pick up keys we were give a call at home the day before we were to leave to check all was well, and the cleanliness of everything when we arrived and the fact that everything that you needed was supplied, like home from home. Thank you for the great experience we all had a fantastic time and would do it again in a heartbeat.

    Claire was extremely helpful in responding to any queries we had, we cooked on 5 nights and everything we needed was available, ample space for us all and a handy utility room for wet/sandy dogs. Good base for access to the coast and an enjoyable day spent at Sandringham.

    A beautiful property that had everything! Very spacious, very well equipped, beautifully clean and extremely well presented. 10 of us and our little dog spent an amazing week there and we absolutely loved it!

    It was perfect for us! Loads of space with great facilities. Everything there for cooking, from a Sunday roast to a barbecue. Everyone enjoyed their stay, the eldest at 97 to the youngest at 18 months old. Would definitely recommend staying here and will rebook in the future.

  • "We had a wonderful week at Hadleigh Farm Barn in April 2019."

    The cottage is spacious and well equipped, perfect for large groups and families. They provided a high chair and a travel cot plus stair gates which was really useful and not at all expected. The kitchen was really well kitted our - everything you would expect and lots that you wouldn’t! Lots of pans, lots of baking trays, everything really good quality. The outside space was perfect for us - one dog, one baby, three kids and various adults - and the patio area is an amazing sun trap. We even managed a bbq! The grassy area was also a huge hit, as was the pond with ducklings - we even spotted rabbits in the neighbouring field. It was a fantastic relaxing week, great location for exploring - lots of local amenities - we really rated the Crown in Gayton - and I would thoroughly recommend the barn. Rachel

  • "Very comfortable and spacious accommodation."

    We were a party of 6 adults, 4 children and a dog, and there was plenty of room. We (the grandparents) appreciated the downstairs bedroom with en suite, and there are 4 further bedrooms and 2 bathrooms upstairs. 2 fridge freezers and 2 tables, one in the kitchen and one in the dining area, meant catering for all of us wasn't a problem. We were impressed by the speed and efficiency with which a couple of problems that we had (a blocked drain and a blinking alarm) were addressed and solved...within hours of us reporting them. It is a working farm, so you should be prepared for the sound of cockerels and farm machinery, which didn't bother us. The adjoining grassy area was great for playing cricket, frisbee etc , and the courtyard is quite a suntrap.

  • "I love this property."

    It was a wonderful place to stay with 7 adults and 2 toddlers. The kitchen is well equipped and there was plenty of room for all of us - we never felt crowded. There are two travel cots and one highchair. The property is close to several attractions and being so near to Kings Lynn you are spoilt for choice with supermarkets. Although it didn't affect my enjoyment of the house ( in fact I think my experience was enhanced!) the WiFi could be patchy so if you are dependent on it for work or Skyping loved ones while you are away this could be problematic.

  • "Broadband was patchy and kept cutting out."

    There wasn’t a guest book giving information about the area. There were a couple of drawers full of out of date leaflets. First cottage I’ve visited that didn’t have a guest comments book, no hand wash, no toilet rolls except the ones left in there. Overall the accommodation was comfortable but lacked the finer touches that we’re used to from other Sykes cottages like we could have done with some local information e.g bus times, local shops/pubs, places to eat and entertainment. A little history re the barn conversion would have been nice too.

    Our growing family consisted of 7 adults, three children and two dogs. There was a lot of room and space for us all, including friends that popped over from time to time. There were plenty of cooking implements, two fridge freezers, clean bedding and lots of towels for us all. The ground floor bedroom is fitted out for disabled people and was spacious, as were the first floor rooms. Good parking and easy to find.

    Clair who is the key holder and point of contact is brilliant, full of information and very helpful. We would struggle to find a better place for three couples and twin 2 month old girls plus a dog to enjoy a harmonious week together for the first time. It proved so successful we have booked a similar venue in the Cotswolds to repeat the experience in April next year. Thanks Sykes Cottages for providing such a rich resource of first class properties.

About the location


Sandringham 9 miles; Snettisham 13.4 miles; Hunstanton 17 miles.

King's Lynn is a historic, medieval port dating back to the 12th century, situated on the River Great Ouse. A treasure trove for history lovers, the town boasts grand merchant houses, art galleries and museums, and the Custom House, built by Henry Bell in 1683, which is a Grade I listed building. The town retains its original winding streets and alleys, and boasts good shopping facilities, with a combination of national retailers and specialist shops, along with a selection of pubs and restaurants. Much of the surrounding Norfolk countryside is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with the West Norfolk coastline within easy driving distance. Hunstanton, in particular, is renowned for its sunsets and lovely beaches. Boat trips are available from several points along the coast, while the Norfolk Coast Cycleway runs from King's Lynn to Cromer. The impressive Visitor Centre at The Queen's fabulous country retreat, Sandringham, is also a short drive away and well worth a visit.
