  • "We enjoyed a very comfortable stay at Shorthorn Barn, which is spacious and well equipped."

    Small maintenance issue was dealt with swiftly and to our satisfaction. Hope to return next year and would wholeheartedly recommend.

  • "We had a marvellous stay, it’s a wonderful place with farm animals which made it extra special for us."

    The owners were very friendly and helpful and they sorted everything out that we needed. The accommodation in its beautiful surroundings was one of the best we have ever stayed at. We can’t wait to re visit.

  • "This Barn Conversion is my vision of where I would like to live, and so absolutely suited to my holiday needs and family of 9 of us."

    4 lovely bedrooms and each with their own bathroom was what we needed. The big kitchen lounge area was great for us all to be together. The enclosed garden with big glass doors open to the outside meant the children could safely play outside. A BBQ was had. The owners are friendly and so helpful.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at this gorgeous converted barn, for six of us celebrating our 40th birthdays."

    It felt cosy and inviting from the moment we walked in. We had everything we needed and the beds were so comfortable! We liked that each room had an ensuite, and the shower was perfect and modern. We got a taxi into the town to have a meal out to celebrate our birthdays and it wasn't far to go. It was a nice surprise that the farm animals were in their pens right next to the barn and so we got to see the sheep and chickens and went for a nice walk too. We loved our stay here, it was calm and blissful and we would definitely be happy to stay again and would recommend.

  • "Fantastic holiday rental."

    Very clean and tidy and perfect for our weekend break. There was 9 of us and we loved the fact we could all sit together to eat and then to relax of an evening and then all had our own rooms with bathrooms which was great. We had a couple of questions to which we asked the owners and they was really quick to reply and help. Just a couple of things i would say to make the rental even better and that would be to have some more utensils for cooking, tongs and a flat spatula for eggs would be great. Also we had no soap in the bathrooms but there are dispensers so not sure if they are for us to fill or to be filled. However none of this impacted our stay at all. We had a fantastic time and would 100% return and recommend to others! Thank you.

  • "This was a lovely property when having family come to Norwich to visit for my birthday."

    The property itself is lovely and in a great location for Norwich. It's very close to shops and pubs nearby in Fakenham. The facilities could have been better in terms of what I would consider the basics for a self catering property. We only had 3 rolls of toilet roll for a 4 bed property that we booked for a week for 9 people. Although there is a dishwasher, there was no dish towels or clothes for cleaning down surfaces, drying dishes or washing a few individual items that is too little to run a dishwasher for. The bins didn't have liners in when we arrived and were very dirty. This wasn't great when we were asked to take the rubbish out before checking out. The microwave was also very dirty and needed to be cleaned before we used it as there was lots of food splattered on the inside. There was also no shower gel and not all of the hand soap dispensers had soap in them. Overall we had a great experience and would recommend this property, but these small details are things that could be improved to make that slight difference and show more attention to detail!

  • "Our family of 7 plus dog had the best week at Barn Conversion."

    Its spacious bedrooms provided down time if needed and the large communal area was perfect for family meals, games nights or film watching on the large tv. The kitchen is well equipped for large scale meals. Situated directly on a footpath for great dog walking. Lidl is a 5 min drive away and Tescos a little further. It is necessary to drive to all the shops. Norwich is 8 miles and the choice of beautiful beaches around 20 miles away. We hired a boat at Wroxham to soak up the best part of Norfolk, the Broads. There’s so much to do, we will definitely be back to stay here. Thank you Chris and Bridget, you’ve created the perfect family holiday accommodation!

  • "Fantastic property with lots of space for 6 adults and 4 children."

    Safe enclosed space for the kids to run around and proper comfortable outdoor seating. The garden gets the sun all day which is amazing especially for an early morning bit of peace (an umbrella would be a great addition). Having an en-suite for every room was a joy and they were all clean with plenty of hot water even if people were showering at the same time (there’s no bath available though). Well equipped kitchen with essential dishwasher. Also a barbecue available in the garden. It was around 40 mins to the sea and we spent time at Sea Palling, Mundesley, Holkham Beach and saw seals swimming at Horsey Gap. We also visited Langham Glass, Norfolk Tank Museum, played foot-golf at the local hotel and went to the Aylesham Show. It was our first time in Norfolk and we’ll definitely be back.

  • "Lovely barn conversion, a bit too remote for us, nothing around us not even good dog walks."

    When the other barns are completed it ( a project in hand) it might be worth thinking about an area for a pool and table tennis table for something to do as it’s so remote especially for teenagers. A couple of tips for things required in the kitchen, cooking tongs, pizza wheel, kitchen roll holder and we left a fly swot as there are so many flies, obviously because you are on a working farm, but an electric wall mounted fly zapper would be a great idea. It could have been cleaner, fridge and freezer were in need of a clean out, I don’t like showering with other peoples hairs( just a pet hate) and a hoover under the sofas would be good as we had to move them about so my elderly father could see the tv from the only armchair as the sofas are not very comfortable, and it was not clean under the sofas. Also an Alexa would be great for news and music, also a washing line and I would think a sun shade to be able to sit outside on the very nice garden furniture when it’s sunny. The mauve flower borders are lovely !! All in all we had a lovely stay despite the rain and these are not to be seen as criticisms as it’s a lovely barn and the lay out is very well thought of just tweeks the owners might like to take on board, thank you for a lovely stay
