    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.

    Bird Barn is in an ideal position for visiting both the Norfolk Broads and the Coast. Very friendly owners , there if needed but not intrusive. The Cottage was spotlessly clean and a welcome package including home made cake was a nice surprise. Several good eating pubs within a few miles and National Trust Properties within an easy drive.

    A really lovely place to stay. Beautiful large garden safe for dogs. The barn is very comfortable, well furnished with everything you need. Nice and warm to return to after a day out, garden table and chairs to sit out on a warmer day. Lovely cake and other extras left for arrival. We had an excellent week at Bird Barn with many places to visit in easy reach. Hope to have a return visit in the future.

    We had a great time at Bird Barn. It's a beautiful house, which is spotlessly clean and well equipped. It is great for dogs - they got a basket and treats left for them. The owners were really helpful. The welcome cake was delicious. We would highly recommend Bird Barn and the local area - beach, zoo, National Trust properties all within half an hour's drive. We'll be back!

    A lovely week spent at Bird Barn. A true home from home. Letty has thought of everything and the welcome pack of milk, bread, butter, dog treats and an amazing cake was most welcome. A great week away and our dogs will miss the huge safe garden. We experienced most weather fronts this week - rain, snow, wind and sun but was always lovely to return to the snug barn. Thank you x

    Had an absolutely amazing few days at Bird Barn. My husband and I (and our 2 dogs) went away for our “babymoon” for 3 nights and could not have wanted anything more. The cottage is absolutely spotless (incredible considering they allow dogs), immaculately decorated and had everything we could have needed. Location was fab and the owners were super friendly and helpful. Lovely touches when we arrived and was very sad to go home. Will highly recommend to friends and family!
