  • "Property as described, clean and tidy."

    A little tired around the edges understandably and needs a bit of tlc here and there but great location and everything you need close by.

  • "Although Flint Barn is a very fine property, we had one or two issues with the upkeep of what could be a superb property."

    The bi-fold doors didn't work (despite them being a feature) so during a very hot week, we only had the back door open which wasn't sufficient. We were disappointed that there wasn't a garden umbrella with the patio table, so no shade. The light above the hob didn't work. The arrangements for curtains seemed strange, not enough per window, so the morning sunlight came in very early. Instructions for bin collection were confusing, in the book it said collection on Wednesday, but they came on Tuesday. However, with one or two improvements this place would be wonderful, and we would return

  • "Unfortunately not a good experience for several reasons which I have reported to you as a company and sent photos as evidence."

    Mezzanine bedroom has no privacy as all of it can be seen clearly from the bedroom opposite. Bi-fold doors in lounge were stuck so could not be opened. Small damage to a couple of dining chairs. Corner units for sitting are small and not suitable for 6 adults to sit on comfortably. Loose slabs at entrance and in the garden so not safe for elderly members of our party. Also accommodation overall is poorly finished and designed in our opinion. Not happy about the £400 bond given no one to greet you or to check when you leave. This left us feeling very vulnerable hence my emails and photos sent you on arrival and subsequent days.

    Hi Linda, I am so sorry your stay wasn’t enjoyable. Sykes forwarded me some photos but I was told it was for reference of damage if I had know your stay was being impacted I would have called you immediately to try and resolve. We are going to the property this weekend to resolve the issues raised and the doors are also being fixed. Unfortunately with the turnaround timescales it can be difficult to make instant repairs but I do always take the feedback onboard and do my upmost to make improvements as quickly as possible. The deposit is just simple security that is fully refunded and common practice unfortunately we have been heavily stung previously with severe damages hence why it is in place. We make it very clear with photos and our descriptions at the booking stage the the mezzanine floor may not be to everyone’s taste. My lovely late father designed the property with so much love and heart but unfortunately the mezzanine can be a little bit marmite for some people. Again I really hope this review doesn’t put people off. We are so very proud of our beautiful barn. Eve Property Owner

  • "Had a very enjoyable stay, however I have some negative comments."

    Curtains or blinds needed urgently at all windows & doors as daylight streams in 4.45am this time of the year so we were unable to sleep past this time. Only two rooms with curtains that don’t meet in the middle,there only purpose is decoration. No privacy whilst using the balcony bathroom, if people are in the kitchen it’s very embarrassing. Floorboards in main and balcony bedroom need attention as they are extremely noisy and nails exposed. Door from lounge area into garden jammed and won’t open Paving slabs by main entrance are dangerous causing tripping incidents. Outside shelter absolutely filthy making it unusable, Black tar on railway sleepers, come home with a lot of ruined clothes worn by our 2 year old.

    Hi Richard, Thankyou so much for your feedback and overall score of 94 out of 100. I appreciate that your comments are to help us improve and are received with thanks and are fully taken on board. We hope to see you back again soon. Many thanks Eve Property Owner

    Kitchen door did not have a key so was not locked we eventually found it under the slab Was not told about these prior to getting there and when calling the agency they advised us they were fully aware about this problem would have been nice for a heads up Apart from these couple of hiccups the property is lovely and comfy just needs a little more TLC

  • "The patio doors out to the garden could not be opened."

    The shower tray in downstairs bathroom doesn't drain properly so kept having to turn water off while showering. Place is looking in need of some TLC. Would of left observations for owners but no comments book found. Although we enjoyed our stay the NO privacy in mezzanine was an issue for us. As three couples the fact that we had no privacy in that bedroom was not relaxing with friends being able to see you in bed & getting dressed from other upstairs bedroom. Small enclosed area so downstairs door could be opened on hot days would be helpful. Small box room was a disappointments with no curtains & booster box on wall where you sleep. On the whole nice place but needs work, grubby staircase & over priced.

  • "It was quite hard to find without google maps but we got there eventually."

    The kitchen was well equipped although it would seem somewhere along the line there had been some glass breakages. The rooms were well presented and clean. We chose Flint Barn as it had a downstairs bathroom and bedroom as we have a disabled son. Unfortunately the downstairs shower was too small to be able to get him in as he needs full assistance. I thought it would have been better as a wet room, but it was just one of those things and with the assistance of three people we managed to get him upstairs every day although the first few times it was a bit of a scare for him. We all enjoyed the holiday and nothing major to complain about. Just a suggestion about a wet room.

  • "There were six of us staying for three nights and we all had a wonderful time in this delightfully restored barn."

    It is spacious, comfortable and very well equipped (including a pizza cutter, oven gloves and iron which a previous guest complained about lack of!). The description of the property is very accurate and describes the open mezzanine bedroom perfectly. We loved it's quirkiness and were not concerned about it being open. Two of the bathrooms are enormous with huge baths (one a jacuzzi); the third bathroom is very small and the shower head is quite low but for 3 nights it wasn't a problem for the couple in that room. That same downstairs bedroom has a very large patio style window and door but no windows - so it could get very warm at night if the guests are not happy to leave the door open at night. It opens onto a dirt farmers track so it's not enclosed in a garden. It's in a lovely quiet area surrounded by fields and countryside. We saw a deer outside one morning and loved the morning chorus! The Ship Inn in Mundesley served amazing fish and chips and we had a delicious evening meal at the friendly Vernon Arms in Southrepps. The property is easy driving distance to many places including Cromer and Blakeney - both well worth a visit. All in all we had a wonderful 3 nights, made all the better by knowing that we would be returning to Flint Barn each day! Thank you for allowing your property to be shared with guests.

  • "There needs to be a door on the bathroom on the mezzanine."

    This is such an easy fix.More tea towels and more dishwasher tablets too please. Sofas need a good clean.On the plus side bed linen and towels were lovely and clean.Would be a nice touch to have a locally produced cake or biscuits and fruit juice rather than a shop bought box of chocs and cheap Buck’s Fizz. Need a bit of maintenance, there is a nail sticking up from floor in mezzanine and shower very rickety.also need an iron please, to go with the ironing board.

    Thank you for your comments. We take all comments very seriously especially when it comes to maintenance. Unfortunately, as it's an old property occasionally old nails do pop up and small issues may arise. We do our best to look out for them and resolve and we are sorry that the points below impacted so significantly on your holiday we would have been very happy to come out and resolve everything we could during your stay but unfortunately, we weren't given this opportunity. I have now asked my maintenance company to address all of the points stated. In relation to the door unfortunately it is not at all an easy fix. My late father fully designed and restored the property with love and quirkiness. I appreciate certain parts are not to everyone's taste but within the description we do our very best to set expectations and show you what you are booking. It is what most of our lovely guests highlight and love so much about the property. We have many comments from guests who weren't expecting anything by the way of a welcome pack and really appreciate our gesture but I'm sorry for you it didn't meet your expectation of what should be provided. I hope this review doesn't put people off we are so proud of our beautiful, quirky and homely barn. We will always take on board comments and aim to improve, and sometimes it just comes down to personal preference too. Property Owner

  • "This was a fabulous weekend away for my daughters 30th Birthday."

    We weren`t disappointed with the property it was everything we expected and more. There were 6 adults and a 2 year old along with 2 German Shepherds. There was more than enough room for all of us. The dogs enjoyed the garden as it was totally enclosed and dog proof. My only criticism would be is it would be a little more private if there was a door on the on-suite to the mezzanine bedroom especially when using the toilet!! There was everything we needed to make our stay comfortable including the lovely touch of a box of chocolates and prosecco. Overall I would thoroughly recommend Flint Barn. Beautiful inside and out. As for the previous comments, I suggest people read the listing features before they book the accommodation!! My family loved it.

  • "Flint Barn is beautifully restored in a quirky way."

    Tricky to find at first, as it is isolated, but only a few miles from the sandy Mundesley beach. we enjoyed the area and it was in a convenient position to drive to many interesting places. But the property did have a few maintenance issues that need rectifying. It has no tumble dryer, and a completely gravel back garden which is a nightmare for the dogs, and for us to clear up after them. You cannot walk around the property. The back is private land, and out to the front the roads have no path. It is impossible in the dark. So we had to drive the dogs to walk them. Take your I Pad, as there is only one small TV, which is not ideal for groups of people who may want to watch different programmes. And some food for the first night and morning The shops are few and far between, and shut early.

  • "It is a very nice looking property."

    Didn't give it full marks because some things missing, like hairdryer, oven gloves, egg cups, trays, coffee machine. Also some of the bedding was marked, and there were cobwebs in bedroom and bathroom. Not that comfortable to sit and watch telly due to the sofas without backs at the ends and the position of the TV. Light and TV noise from below disturbed people in the open bedroom in the evening if they went to bed earlier than the rest of us. Dogs are accepted but the garden is completely gravel/pebbles so not really dog friendly. Very quiet and peaceful location. It was expensive for what it was. Would suit some families but didn't work for us.

    The barn was lovely and we celebrated a belated Christmas while we were there. Could do with a guide to working the heating/boiler system as we were either too hot or too cold. Suggest putting a door on the bathroom facilities off the bedroom area of the mezzanine above the living room.

    The Picture of the sofa is very misleading it cannot sit comfortably 8 people it is very short meaning relaxing in an evening was sit up style Mattress cover on single bed marked and had hair stuck to it Underneath beds not clean Oven and kitchen very tired, thank goodness only cooked breakfast it would have been hard work to cook a meal Heating seemed to be hit and miss and not enough hot water for all showers, the plumber in the group thought it was being controlled remotely It was an ok stay but it looked and sounded ok the pictures more comfortable and higher standard

    As a cherished family home lovingly restored by my late father we take all comments and feedback very seriously / personally. We have just had the heating system fully replaced. I can ensure you that it is not controlled remotely. I cant see any record that you called during the stay to report an issue. We will always ensure we do our upmost to resolve an issue but unfortunately we were not given the opportunity on this occasion. With reference to the kitchen space I understand that we do all have own personal preferences. I have cooked full Christmas dinners for 8 people at complete ease and is one of my favourite spaces. We have always comfortably sat 8 people around the sofas. We also have very comfortable dining chairs and arm chairs around the property that are available for use. I believe we do offer sufficient seating facilities for the number of guests. We have a strict cleaning regime set to an incredibly high standard and I am sorry that you feel the property fell short. There were new covers on the single bed and we also always clean under the beds. Again I am sorry we didn't meet you full expectations. I also hope this review doesn't put others off of booking. As a family we are incredibly proud of Flint Barn. My Dad built and renovated the property to an exceptional standard. Personal preference always plays a part but we truly believe that Flint Barn is an impressive property that will supersede most peoples expectations. Property Owner
