  • "The accommodation is lovely, exactly as described in the details."

    It was warm and had everything we needed. The owner introduced herself on arrival day so good communication and left a welcome pack to make a drink and biscuits. I would further like to had that this property is suitable for people with limited mobility being all on one level and spacious.

    We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay in the Stables. Thank you for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "Lovely quiet location."

    Access is down a short single track lane but very quiet as we didn't encounter another vehicle during our weeks stay. Barn was spotless, right down to shiny clean cutlery, immaculate fridge/freezer & shiny taps. Spacious & light accommodation. Beds were excellent. Linen & towels excellent quality. Shared courtyard but both properties were well screened. Had a warm welcome from Jane the owner....the only negatives we encountered during our stay were lots of flies ( but a fly swat is provided ), which is just down to it's country location. And the no smoking, which also applied to our outside courtyard seating area. Although it was advertised as a no smoking property, maybe it should also include the fact that there is also no smoking allowed in your garden area. I only mention this as a negative as my elderly Father smokes a pipe & missed sitting outside in the early morning, having a cuppa & a puff of his pipe. That is just personal to our stay & may not affect the majority of other parties staying at the accommodation.

    Thank you so much for your feedback. We do experience a few flies at certain times of the year eg extremely hot weather, harvest time - all part and parcel of living in the countryside. I acknowledge your specific comment about no smoking in the courtyard, put in place for the comfort of all guests. However, we would have been pleased to try and sort something out for your father during your stay. Property Owner

  • "This cottage was immaculate."

    The attention to cleanliness was exceptional. When staying at cottages with beams you expect a few cobwebs high up but there was not even a cobweb in sight. Our little Granddaughter lost one of her toys down the sofa and on removing the cushions to get it we found not even so much as a crumb! Many other cottage owners could learn a lot from the owners of this one! It was in a beautiful, peaceful location. There was plenty of cutlery and crockery and although the photo on the website showed only 2 dining chairs there was 4. Will definitely be booking again in the future.

About the location


Fakenham 8.4 miles, Holt 13.6 miles, Wells-next-the-sea 17.7 miles, Norwich 22.2 miles

Willow Grange Barns are situated a mile from the main village of Stanfield, a small quiet Norfolk village and centrally located for country routes that provide a gateway to many of Norfolk’s attractions. The nearest village shop / post office is less than 2 miles away in Mileham. Once an important centre on the east to west route across Norfolk - as evidenced by the remains of a 12th century motte and bailey castle. Brisley offers the nearest village pub / restaurant 2.5 miles distant. A little further afield are Litcham and North Elmham offering village pubs, shops and a tea room. For a full range of shops, bars, restaurants and other amenities, head to either; Dereham, a market town, home to the ‘Mid-Norfolk Railway’ and easy access to the A47 or; Fakenham, with a regular Thursday market / country auction sale and a National Hunt racecourse. The nearby Gressenhall Museum offers you a fascinating journey through the story of rural Norfolk. A real working farm and the opportunity to step back in time and browse around an old village shop, school and cottage, is a great family experience. Houghton Hall, which regularly holds art exhibitions and cultural events is also close by. Pensthorpe Natural Park is a must-see whilst in the area, boasting a 700-acre reserve and conservation park with interactive trails and eco play areas providing something for both children and adults to enjoy. Take time to discover the Norfolk coastline, seaside towns, quaint villages and fantastic beaches. Wells-next-the-sea and nearby Holkham are two of the best and Wells is an interesting place to visit all-year round, with its range of shops, cafes and award winning fish & chips overlooking the harbour. No trip to Norfolk would be complete without spending a day in the historic and fine City of Norwich with its Norman Castle, Cathedrals (Anglican and Catholic), medieval market place, antiquated shopping lanes, art galleries and theatres. Within easy travelling distance from Stanfield you can explore the Broads National Park, Thetford Forest, Sandringham House, Blickling Hall, Cromer Pier and the historic maritime town of King’s Lynn.
