  • "Peaceful and relaxing."

    What a wonderful place for a holiday the barn was clean, comfy, warm and the hosts Tim and Helen were amazing. We were there at lambing time and had open access to the lambing barn and the many years of shepherding experience which was shared with us. Situated just outside the market town of Reepham in open countryside you could not wish for a more peaceful and relaxing place to stay. We certainly hope to return again. Thank you for a wonderful weeks holiday

    This property was perfect it was very quiet and very peaceful, spotlessly clean and very warm when it needed to be, The shower's are very powerful and wonderfully hot having one in each bedroom is also very convenient the only problem was that we had just settled in and all of a sudden the weeks over

  • "Overall a very comfortable place to stay."

    The beds were fantastic and we had really good nights sleep, and both en-suite showers were really good. Lots of properties aren’t as good as this, so it was a welcome change for a good nights sleep and a great shower in the morning. Plenty of space in the bedrooms, but the lounge was a little more compact. The sofa and armchair were quite low down, so getting out of them was a struggle for me and my dodgy knees. Kitchen was well fitted out with all you needed. Heating and hot water plentyiful. It was a bitterly cold and snowy weekend, and the paving slabs on the patio and leading up the walkway to the door were covered in black ice. Very dangerous in the dark. Would have been ideal to have had some grit to through down and melt it away. If you’re taking a four legged friend, it’s a short walk down to the disused railway line for a flat walk in either direction to either Reepham or Whitwell stations. Both are heritage railway sites and the cafes are fantastic. Highly recommend the Kings Arms in Reepham for a meal. We would definitely use again if we were visiting the area.

    Brilliant shower, comfy bed. Really nice walking areas right from the door. There was so little traffic was a real change of pace. Small, fully enclosed patio handy for my dog. He won't walk on slippery floors but luckily I was mostly prepared so was able to put runners down. Cooker etc. easy to use so a nice, relaxing stay. Can't get takeaways delivered due to location so be prepared. Friendly, helpful owners and was met with some goodies as a welcome. If I had a braver dog, I would stay again and explore Marriott's Way a bit further.

  • "Nice location, very peaceful working farm, sadly the barn lacked some necessities."

    The free biscuits, crisps and small amount of tea, coffee and sugar were appreciated however, a pint of milk would have been useful, this has been pretty standard with all other places we have stayed in the past. The necessities lacking include; four comfy seats in the lounge area (a corner sofa would be a good idea instead of the uncomfortable wicker chair), decent pillows as the ones we had were flat and I would have thrown them away, smaller basins in the ensuites would be better instead of the huge ones in there, sound proofing in the boiler cupboard would be fantastic as it is extremely noisy to be in the bedroom and outdoor furniture for the garden area as we could not enjoy this despite the beautiful weather. I had to go and buy two pillows to be comfortable when sleeping I have never had to do this before. The owners also failed to notify us that the power and internet were going off on one day during our stay, this could have interfered with a planned business meeting had the electricians I spoke to not been extremely helpful as the owners were nowhere in sight or close by. The power outage did interrupt the cooking of breakfast until I asked them to put it back on due to this! This is not good enough you need to communicate with your clients. Overall a nice place to stay but the necessities need sorting.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Sparrow Cottage, everything was really clean with good quality fixtures and fittings, bedding and towels were all fresh and soft."

    The wi-fi recently installed was really good, but there was no phone signal. There were plenty of plug sockets, each with there own usb slot, which was really useful and something you don't always find especially on a farm. The farm is situated up a small very quiet lane so there was hardly any noise, it was beautiful to look out of the window straight onto the pond, out the back. Helen and Tim were lovely very friendly and Tim loves his life on the farm with a real passion. Dogs Jip and Finn, were friendly and loved coming over for a fuss. Lovely fresh eggs straight from the chickens. The well known Marriott's Way was only a few hundred yards from the farm and was ideal for dog walking, although the weather, in particular the wind, was really high, making it biting and icy, or we would probably have walked a lot further than we did and would have been lovely if not so cold. It was a lovely relaxing time, although the weather wasn't great it was warm and cosy in the cottage with Netflix and Amazon on the TV in both the living room and bedroom, so it definitely wasn't a problem.
