Tucked away down a country lane in the heart of Broadland, and enjoying glorious views across open fields, a range of handsome barns has been tastefully converted to create the attractive cluster of cottages we offer here. Some nestle under their traditional Norfolk thatch, all are very comfortably appointed and each enjoys its own individual patio. From the cottages, a gentle and tranquil rural landscape dotted with ancient churches, wind pumps and nature reserves, among a myriad other delights all under vast, arching East Anglian skies, offers a wealth of opportunity for enjoying walking, cycling and bird watching. Nearby How Hill nature reserve, with its marsh meadows, dykes, woodland and open water, is well worth exploring and the wider surrounding area supports a host of attractions. Riverside pubs and cafés are plentiful and a number of Broadland centres offer bike hire or canoe hire (possibly the most delightful way to discover the lovely reed lined waterways and their abundant wildlife) and visitors can also hire boats at nearby Potter Heigham, 4 miles, or take a pleasure cruise from bustling Wroxham – the capital of the Broads and home to the ‘world’s largest village store’ as well as the train station for the Bure Valley narrow gauge steam railway. Close by, BeWILDerwood, a magical tree top park, promises children a day to remember, and lovely dune backed sandy beaches are a short drive – Sea Palling lies just 6 miles away. For lively family fun, visitors need look no further than Great Yarmouth and its famous pleasure beach, or Pleasurewood Hills theme park, whilst Cromer also offers traditional seaside entertainments including a renowned end of pier show. Bygone museums, craft centres and Blickling Hall (National Trust) are all within an easy drive, as is the medieval city of Norwich with its magnificent cathedral, castle, galleries, museums, cinemas, theatres and excellent shopping. A little further afield on the north Norfolk coast, seal watching boat trips can be found at picturesque fishing villages, many of which also boast pubs and restaurants serving superb, locally caught seafood. Coarse fishing is available on local waters just 400 yards away, and the pretty village of Ludham, 1 mile, boasts two pubs and a good range of shops.

All properties: Gas central heating, electricity, bed linen, towels and Wi-Fi included. Patio with garden furniture. Fishing, 100 yards. Cycle hire (available by arrangement, at cost). Parking. No smoking.

The general location was good and peaceful. The accommodation did lack a few essentials, this is the first time I have ever stayed anywhere that did not provide any salt & pepper, and only one bin bag was inadequate. All my party found the foam mattresses uncomfortable and there was poor lighting in the public areas due to failed light bulbs; this could be easily remedied but smacked of lack of care and maintenance. In consideration it was a lot of money for what we got.

The cottage requires updating and the furniture is old and uncomfortable. The oven was filthy and the en-suite shower door was missing a handle and would not close properly allowing the floor to be soaked. The main bathroom toilet was not properly secured to the wall or floor and was unstable and unsafe. The hoover did not work and smelt of burning if switched on. There were numerous other faults and flaws but generally it needed cleaning and maintenance checks done from top to bottom. It is such a lovely area and we have stayed in one of the other lodges before, that's why we returned to Grove Farm Barns. I hope they sort things out and if they did, we would return but not in its current state.

This place could be Great if only a little attention to detail was applied. The building and location was very good, a little updating on the interior ie, furniture and touch up on paint and things that were loose screwed down. These were liveable with but it could be so much nicer. Having said that, we had a great time and would return again
