    Functional and spacious, plant of room for our comfortable stay for 6 adults, two toddlers and 3 dogs. Short driving distances from the coast and other local towns and attractions. Enjoyable long weekend

    Six of us spent 3 nights from the 30th December 2018 to celebrate the New Year. The location close to Wells, Blackeney and Cley was perfect for walking. The accommodation itself was nice but lacked a few touches that would have made the stay perfect. Firstly, the underfloor heating wasnt working so we had to contact the owner to try and get this going. After searching for numerous thermostats we believe we found the right one and the heating slowly came on. The attention to cleaning could be better as there appeared to be cob webs everywhere. Now we understand with the vaulted ceilings this can be challenging, but an attempt now and then would keep on top of it. The minimum of toilet rolls and no hand soap in the main bathrooms was also disappointing. The dishwasher also didnt perform too well and we had to perform our own maintenance on it to remove a blockage in the sprayers. One of the doors on the oven also wouldnt close properly, but this was a minor issue but does need attention. Overall we had a great time. We usually do as a group and have stayed in a number of properties together. Its disappointing to see owners not making that extra bit of effort to make your stay special and welcoming. Minor points maybe, but they do make all the difference.

    Fabulous time spent at Dove Barn with all my family over christmas! It was comfortable and cosy with more than enough space for the 8 of us plus 2 dogs. The garden is secure to let the dogs run around without worrying about them getting out. It’s a beautiful barn and we would definitely return!

    Dove barn was very nice and the setting was really nice lots of room for us and three dogs.It could have been cleaner lots od dust and cobwebs One of the towels had a large stain on it .the bath upstairs needed cleaning before use and there were finger nails on side of bath .Not enough bin begs .A welcome pack would have been nice .we have stayed in lots of cottages and this is the first that has not had one .Bathrooms had a damp smell ,especially after using the showers .The Windows were filthy .This is why we will not stay there again .

    We had a family weekend at Dove Barn. This is a spacious property with comfortable beds in a lovely location. The living and kitchen area provided plenty of seating and the kitchen had everything we needed. The garden is enclosed and there is plenty of space for several cars. A vase of fresh flowers and / or a small welcome treat would have been appreciated as would of sufficient toilet paper for the weekend! I also think that a little more cleaning would perhaps be helpful. Overall, we had a lovely weekend, this is a great place for a larger family group.

    The cottage is situated in a lovely rural spot. It has four good sized bedrooms which was great for our family party of 5 The upstairs bathroom could benefit from a shower but understand that water pressure may be a problem there and the towels were a bit hard and one was stained. The cleanliness was ok but the oven wasn't clean and some of the oven trays had seen better times. Could I suggest another frying pan would be useful, the existing one is large, but the handle is a bit dodgy. Also the washing machine could do with a maintenance wash. We have stayed in lots of cottages over Britain and this was a nice one but we have had more personal touches like milk tea coffee and more luxury for less money in other places. Small touches would add to value for money.

    Dove Barn is set in the countryside and offers peace and tranquility. It is ideally located near to many beaches and attractions. Holkam beach is definitely the place to go if you don’t mind a bit of a walk to get to the sea. The cottage is clean and spacious and as described in the booking details. Diana the owner is lovely and if you had any worries I’m sure she would do her best to sort them out! There were 4 adults, 3 teenage boys and 3 dogs in our party and it’s the best holiday we’ve had for a very long time ( the heat wave did contribute ☀️) My only note of warning would be the pond in the garden, as perhaps this could be fenced off with chicken wire to prevent fogs from going in for a smelly swim on a daily basis 🐾 Enjoy whoever goes there next, I’m sure we will be back at some point!

    Lots of space for family groups and in a great location. Suited a large family group of all ages. Bit lacking in equipment which could do with updating. Basic equipment meant cooking for vegetarians and non vegetarians was harder than it needed to be. Fridge struggled with a weeks worth of food. Great access for beautiful Norfolk beaches and villages.
