  • "The barn was spacious, cooking facilities we very good and the bath and shower were excellent."

  • "Having never been to Norfolk before we felt that this was an ideal location to explore the area."

    It wasn’t far from Norwich for a bit of culture and the coast was pretty close. Our accommodation was very well presented and Joanne and her husband very welcoming. Only one tiny criticism I felt there was a need for a shower mat to put in the bath when having a shower.

  • "Excellent self catering accommodation with everything you could possibly need."

    The Barn is located on quite a busy road but the bedrooms are situated the furthest away so not too noisy. Very friendly owners on hand or a phone call away with help if needed. Gravel drive which could have been tricky as we had a wheelchair user with us although we were able to park next to the main door to unload and get the chair inside so no real problem. Just be aware that the small single beds are only 5ft long, so wouldn’t suit everyone. Lots of places to visit around a 45 minute drive and some lovely beaches too. Overall a lovely stay and would definitely return.

  • "I have been on self catering holidays for over 30 years and have never had such a well equipped kitchen before."

    It would be a good idea to mention in the description of the property that in one twin room the beds are only 5ft. Not a problem for us but may be for others

  • "We had a wonderful break at The Long Barn."

    The barn was clean, comfortable and fully equipped. The owners were really friendly and helpful. The location is great for days out in Norfolk most drives took us less than 40 minutes.

  • "Nice property, well located for Norwich and Norfolk coast/beaches."

    Nice/ friendly owners. Drawbacks which were not clear in the listing ( I think), are the main Norwich to Fakenham road is right next to the property and is really noisy, virtually from early morning till late in the night; also there is no real garden, just a smallish fenced-off gravelled area which is really part of the driveway between the houses, where guests and owners park their cars, if you were to use the area it would also be affected by the very loud road noise.

  • "Not suitable for 6 adults as 2 of the single beds are child size and room was tiny, my 6ft guest really struggled and decided to leave early."

    No garden for a dog and right on a noisy busy road so had to have our young dog on a lead at all times. Disappointing that there were no off lead walks without having to drive. Kitchen pedal bin broken so had to touch the lid to open. En-suite shower was stuck on hot. Owner was friendly. Good base for travelling around Norfolk. Barn was clean and double bedroom was pretty. The owner left provisions for beverages and biscuits for us. We discovered The Marriotts Way which was a short drive away and was suitable for off lead dog walks.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback for your stay. I am glad you found us well situated to explore all Norfolk has to offer. We are sorry to hear of the problems you encountered. We do ask you to inform us of any issues you have during your stay, the broken bin and hot water could have been dealt with very quickly. Unfortunately, the countryside surrounding us is all farm owned, crops or livestock make it unsuitable for dogs to roam free. There are lots of on lead walks and as you say Marriott’s Way is just a 15 min walk or short car journey away with 26 miles of bridleway suitable for walking and cycling. The beds in the small room are 6’ beds but I understand this can be a struggle for some as they are wall to wall, I will ask Sykes to mention this in their listing. Property Owner

  • "Fantastic location for exploring the north Norfolk coast, of visiting local towns such as Holt which is very dog friendly, full of character, individual shops, coffee shops and charm."

    We tend to park at Holt Country park £2.00 for the whole day , walk the dogs through the woods and then walk into Holt itself. Aylsham has a lovely dog friendly Biddies tearoom and is another lovely market town or going into the city of Norwich itself. The owners and cottage are very dog friendly and there are some amazing walks from the doorstep.

  • "Holiday cottage was very nice but I was very glad that I changed my mind and didn’t take my little dog the driveway being all large stones would be difficult to clean up poo."

    Being so close to the road with heavy traffic the dog would need to be always on a lead no grass for the dog to just run about on .

    We had a seven day stay but unfortunately didn't tick the full list we had prepared which says it all. Will come back soon. ps The only negative was I felt the need for a couple of decent sized mirrors., possibly full length in two of the bedrooms.
