  • "The Stables was a lovely place to stay."

    Perfect to come home to after a day exploring the villages and coast. It is surrounded by good places to eat out but has everything you need to cook for yourselves. The owner was very kind in letting us use the washer/dryer in another property as ours was waiting for parts to repair it. This was very helpful. We loved the stables and will certainly return .

  • "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.

    It is well equipped and very clean throughout. The stables is in a nice rural setting but is within driving distance of all of the local attractions and beaches. We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay.

  • "The perfect choice!"

    The stables was presented to a high standard, with plenty of space. A peaceful setting and use of the tennis court when wanted made for a great holiday. A call from the owners before we arrived to check all was OK, as well as friendly and helpful during the stay. Highly recommended.

  • "Lovely accommodation in a nice setting, peaceful and rural."

    Jane and James the owners have create a family holiday let to a very high standard. We enjoyed our stay with family and very lucky with the weather. Our only negative would be the duvet was a 13.5 tog when summer temperatures hit but due to Covid-19 we didn't ask for an alternative we thought Jane had done everything she could in line with government regulations. Would recommend the Stables. Many thanks for a wonderful stay the Heaton family.

  • "Everything was as advertised, the accommodation was super clean and very comfortable."

    Due to the dreadful weather we couldn’t use the outside space at all but I imagine that would have added a further relaxing dimension to this cottage. I would recommend the Stables .

  • "We have just returned from a lovely relaxing week at the stables."

    The weather wasn’t very kind to us but the accommodation was warm and cosy. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. My elderly parents were worried about slipping in the shower but no problem, we were provided with a non slip bath mat straight away. We would definitely return to the stables and highly recommend it.

  • "Lovely barn conversion, very comfy."

    Despite all the restrictions of the Covid19 pandemic, the Stables lived up to a very high standard we have come to expect from Sykes Cottages. In a quiet and secluded position yet quite central to reach all of the areas of interest. Loved the courtyard where we were able to sit in the evening. Would recommend

  • "The accommodation was beautiful - stylish and clean."

    The owners couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming both before and during our stay. They responded quickly to all our queries and requests. The location was rural and peaceful. Whilst it isn't on the coast, it is conveniently located to visit all the places of interest. 2 members of our party were golfers and the location was ideal for the range of clubs they played at. We highly recommend The Stables.

  • "The standard of this property was excellent."

    It's normally a challenge to find a cottage with a hot shower, comfy bed and well equipped kitchen with everything you need, but this ticked all the boxes and then some. The owners were helpful and welcoming and the location, although rural is not more than half an hour away from local places of interest. Would not hesitate in recommending the Stables, or returning ourselves!

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.
