    Value for money the time of year we stayed in the cottage. Expensive at peak times as all cottages are. The times we stayed suited our requirements? Ideal location for us whilst visiting our home town of Norfolk as close to our family. Cottage spotlessly clean and comfortable. I would certainly recommend this cottage to friends and family. Owners are lovely people and very helpful.

    Bird Barn was incredibly clean. Beds extremely comfortable. Very warm, homely and cosy. A very welcome delicious home made Victoria sponge. Milk, butter, bread, tea, sugar and coffee. Even spring water in the fridge. Owners friendly and very approachable. Bed, towels and treats left for dogs in the cottage also. Lovely enclosed garden. Just perfect !

    A return visit to an absolutely delightful barn. The owners are so friendly and nothing was too much trouble, even to agreeing to us taking our chinchillas (due to a medical issue with one). The holiday was exactly what was needed and the barn did not disappoint. Warm, comfortable and central enough for visiting places of interest.

    We really enjoyed our stay. The garden was super secure which we greatly appreciated as we were able to relax. Our 2 dogs loved the large garden. The location is great. The hosts are very friendly and easy to talk to. It exceeded our expectations and we would return.

    Bird barn is a lovely place to stay. It is a modern barn conversion, set in its own large fenced garden. It was spotlessly clean and filled with lots of thoughtful touches such as a home made cake on arrival, a few books/toys/games, and useful things like kitchen roll and dishcloth were provided.
