  • "We had a lovely stay, definitely come again."

    We loved the Christmas tree, decorations & biscuits. Thank you for having us.

  • "A lovely barn conversion - beautiful lounge and master bedroom."

    Sadly we had to leave early in a rush because of a family situation but enjoyed our short break. Only issue was colder second bedroom and very small shower en suite off this downstairs bedroom. Lovely location if a little secluded. Would recommend for sure.

  • "Lovely cottage, possibly the best we've stayed in, ideally located to explore Norfolk & Suffolk."

    Would recommend walks along the beaches at Cromer and Southwold. The Crown at Pulham Market does great food and Goodies Farm Shop is well worth a visit too. The short dog walk details included in the property notes by the owner was very useful.

  • "We had a brilliant week at Duckfoot Barn and it's definitely a place we would return to, such a beautiful barn, very comfortable and well appointed."

    We all slept really well in the beds and unlike some properties, the sofas too were very comfortable. It's very quiet as it's surrounded by farm land, so you have to travel just a short distance to shop, but for us, this was heavenly. We will return.

  • "Ducksfoot Barn was fantastic lovely welcoming touches."

    Had a really lovely week there . Could not have been better Unfortunately we had some issues with Sykes Cottages. our original booking had to be cancelled due to Covid 19 and Sykes would not refund the whole amount . Later a sum of £54 was held over for a future booking although we had already booked another cottage . It took several phone calls and emails before this sum was refunded. Not very happy as this is our money and should have been refunded immediately

  • "Ducksfoot Barn, was truly home from home."

    The owners made sure we were comfortable and happy with everything the first evening we arrived. It's situation with a dog was excellent, quiet roads for the shorter 'comfort break' walks and Tyrrells' Wood a shortish walk or 3minutes in the car for those longer hour plus walks with, in our case an exuberant Working Cocker. The Barn was warm, spacious and well equipped, if I had to find fault I would say the kitchen knives were a bit blunt... that would be all.

    Ducksfoot Farm is in a lovely setting. The Barn itself combines the rustic of the setting with the contemporary interior design, giving a wow factor. The beds were so comfortable and clean, and every necessity for a self catering holiday had been provided. There are lots of recommendations of places to visit and eat, and the local pub in Pulham Market served great food in a nice atmosphere. A very pretty area. Norwich, Sandringham and Southwold are worth visits. The icing on the cake was the appearance of the mother duck with her twelve ducklings from the duck pond proudly marching around the garden!

  • "They let motorhomes/caravans park on the side we didn't have any but they have provided a garden table and chairs on the patio and if you where to sit out there you would be over looked ."

    if you had a dog/children they would be able to get out onto this area which also doubles as your carparking space. they have put roses/hedge and an arch but just needs a gate and a bit of fencing to make it secure. apart from that it was lovely and would probably go again

  • "The barn has been lovingly converted and has ample of room for a large family."

    We were just two with our dog who despite the weather managed to have a relaxing time and a chance to catch up with friends. We found a lovely warm reception for both us and the dog at The Swan in Coney Weston, where we enjoyed a nice meal and had a relaxing afternoon. If you want somewhere nice and near to walk your pooch then Tyrell’s wood is only 4 minutes away by car or if the weather is nice then local footpaths are within walking distance. For local produce you couldn’t go far wrong with Goodies which is not much further on from Tyrrel’s wood and has a nice selection of fresh, frozen homemade meals. There is also a butchers and if you want to enjoy a bit of lunch out then also a nice cafe. This was our second time to Ducksfoot Barn and I’m sure that it will not be our last visit there as we love it, especially the peace and quiet.
