  • "We have just spent a lovely weekend in Flint Barn."

    The barn was roomy and generally well maintained. The instructions to get to the barn could have been a little more helpful but after asking someone we found it. This barn comfortably hosted 7 adults and the beds were really comfortable. It was well positioned for walking and to get to the beach. The doggy treats, Prosecco and chocolates were a welcome addition. This is a well laid out property and we would recommend it.

  • "Beautiful property with preserved original features giving it the wow factor, clever layout in a lovely location."

    Pristine and fully equipped kitchen with everything you need to self cater. The only tiny criticism would be the creaky bed and floor boards in the upstairs family room, created a nocturnal sound track for the bedroom below that could be improved.

    A cosy and spacious barnfor 2 families to stay near the coast. Maybe correct the Sykes entry (it is not in the village of Trunch!) with better directions referencing the fact that Flint Barn is down a track! Some bedroom lamps would not go amiss.

  • "Overall a very pleasurable stay."

    There were a few "tiny" things that were raised during the stay. 1. We arrived at 4pm as instructed to find the cleaner still working. We had to wait around until she finished at 5pm which isn't great particularly when we didn't have a great deal of time with you and were asked to leave on Sunday so early. Please note it was not the cleaners fault - she was let down by a team member but measures should have been put in place for this. 2. When we asked for a fire we didn't expect to have to go and find our own logs/kindling. Thankfully your cleaner was very helpful and gave us directions to the local shops. 3. For a stay which included 2 breakfasts and 2 dinners we were only provided with 3 dishwasher tabs. 4. The seating in the main area, whilst generally comfortable did have hard wooden parts under the cushions at the end of each one - so whoever sat there, it was uneven and became uncomfortable after a while.

  • "Lovely large barn ideal for a family."

    Great quiet village position near to plenty of attractions. Laid out well so that there is plenty of social space. Only minor issues were the mezzanine bedroom and no door on the bathroom up there meant no sleeping in or privacy! In the kitchen the tap did not run cold for a long while. There needs to be a new plug for the sink. There needs to be more plates and bowls. Finally it was hot in there!! Could do with clearer instructions regarding thermostats and radiator use as it felt very wasted when we needed doors open to cool the space. The bedrooms are super hot

    Hi Sarah, Thankyou so much for your positive feedback it means so much to us and we appreciate any constructive feedback and will take it on board. In relation to the heating unfortunately the previous guests turned everything off at the wall therefore the heating was switched up high at the wall to ensure it had warmed through for your arrival. Apologies it was a little too high it wouldn’t ordinarily be so hot. I will add a note to the welcome book but the heating should only be operated very simply via the thermostats on the wall nowhere else, it’s an air source heat pump so can just take a little while to adjust.

  • "It was our first holiday in Norfolk and we had a great time."

    The house was off the beaten track which suited us fine as we like quiet. On first impressions the barn looked as advertised. We understand that it means a lot to the family, however it is quite tired in it's appearance. The sofas are smaller than they look on the pictures, difficult to sit comfortably when we all wanted to sit down after a busy day. The facilities in the kitchen were good but only one bin liner and 2 dishwasher tablets were provided which isn't adequate for 7 people. The bedrooms are comfortable, needs a mirror in the upstairs family room and a lamp as you can't turn the light off from the bed which means finding your way around in the dark. A couple of blinds were broken on our arrival not sure how long they have been like that. The iron didn't work either. It might be worth checking the electrics through the house as some of the lights were flickering too. Toilet rolls were cheap and as a result not enough provided for 7 people. In terms of the holiday we enjoyed Norfolk and had some great family time. In terms of value for money, this house needs some tlc if you are going to continue to charge your current prices.

    Hi many thanks for your feedback we appreciate being updated on any maintenance issues which the team will look into. If they had been highlighted during your stay we would have happily resolved everything possible. We do believe that we offer a really thorough welcome package with enough to get people started inclusive of extras that many other properties do not supply. I would suggest speaking with Sykes on future bookings to set the expectation of what is included. Property Owner

    Difficult sleeping with open plan arrangements…not ideal for teenagers. Single bedroom more like a cupboard, flimsy walls.. not good. No window in downstairs bedroom, very hot. Floorboards upstairs really terrible noise. Not enough seating in lounge for 7 people. Lighting in dining area very poor, especially when trying to play board games. Kitchen , utility very good. However overall very disappointing .

    The paving outside the front and back doors is loose and dangerous to walk on. Floorboards in the upstairs bedroom are uneven and need fixing down in places. We appreciate this is a pet friendly property but we had to spend some time hoovering up pet hair in the lounge.

  • "Flint Barn is in a lovely location, peaceful and quiet."

    Great access to the lovely beaches and the broads. However previous guests have pointed out faults with the property loose taps, poorly fitted toilet seat, loose paving slabs, curtains that need rehanging. Water drainage problems in the showers and bath. This could be a wonderful place to stay, in my opinion it is being let down by the cleaning and maintenance companies. There was a bunch of fresh flowers that had been put in water that was extremely smelly. Spoiling what is meant to be a kind welcoming. We managed because there was only x 4 adults so we could make use of the showers and toilets that were in better working order. The garden was ideal for our dog. Not user friendly for toddlers and small children. With an eye to detail Flint Barn would be a fabulous holiday stay. Sykes please look after future guests and ensure the on going feedback from guests on cleaning and maintenance issues are resolved.

    Just a couple of points of note; Floorboards in the bedroom above ground floor bedroom need attention. Many are loose, creaky, and a few have buckled and warped upwards. Most of the mixer taps need refixing as they are loose. These things in no way detracted from what was a very enjoyable break to visit the place of my birth, and I/we would happily return to this property.

    A number of light bulbs were out and other things broken (taps, hose, drying rack). Although some effort was made to fix things, the owners should be more realistic about pricing unless they plan to upgrade things

    Many thanks for your feedback. We do our upmost to provide everything required for a comfortable stay and always take on board feedback and regularly upgrade and fix anything required. Unfortunately sometimes the timing is out of our control. We did double check the lightbulbs and all were in working order so perhaps the location of switches were missed which is easily done.

    We were very pleased with the accommodation - and that it was set back from the road (although improved signage to find it would be helpful). A couple of points that might be of help to future holiday makers: we found that neither tin opener worked (I left them out on the draining board); the toilet seat in the ground floor double bedroom en-suite was loose when we arrived, and needs fixing); and an instruction manual for the microwave and dishwasher would be helpful! Otherwise, all good.

    The kitchen is very well equipped and the lounge area forms a nice focus for socilaising with a nice big dining table for eating. The layout was a bit quirky (one room with a double and single) but this is made clear on the site. There were two things that could be improved. One of the double beds collapsed (the one on the ground floor) on the last night, and also the curtains on the downstairs bedroom did not close properly. This was surprising since we noted that this has previussly been pointed out in reviews and I would urge the owners to do something about this

    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

    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.

    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 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!!

    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.

The property

Resting in the picturesque village of Knapton, Norfolk, Flint Barn is a bright and open barn that brings an air of luxury to the Norfolk countryside.

A sociable space that welcomes your four-legged friends, this holiday property is the perfect venue for hosting a large group of friends or family.

On arrival, park your car off-road and make your way into this delightfully rustic, yet fabulously stylish barn, to begin your relaxing break.

As you enter the bright and spacious open-plan living space, you will be taken away by the tall patio doors leading out into the garden and the woodburning stove, perfect for snuggling around on a cold winter’s night.

The space features a number of original character beams and features, blending perfectly with the contemporary stylings for an exquisite finish.

As you and your sous-chef take your time to create a delectable meal in the contemporary fully-fitted kitchen, chat with your friends as they relax on the sofas with a drink.

Come together at the dining table and share stories of your adventures so far, as you tuck into your food before heading back to the sofas and flicking on the TV for a movie night.

The ground floor is also home to a cloakroom consisting of a WC and hand basin, as well as a separate utility room to keep your clothing fresh throughout your stay.

As the evening ends, guests can each make their way to one of the four chic bedrooms available in this property.

A cosy single bedroom can be found on the left-hand side of the ground floor and comes with a single bed and draws for storage.

The second of the ground floor bedrooms is a roomy double bedroom with a plethora of storage.
