We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Perfect for 10 people and well equipped. We enjoyed watching the visiting wildlife seen from the house; hares, partridges, oyster catchers, a Little Owl, and a kite. Also loved the pond with two swans and some shy ducks. We were situated in an ideal location to visit Kings Lynn, Sandringham and the beautiful coast. Loved it.

A lovely barn in a delightful location with the Norfolk Coast Path - to which we wanted easy access - just a few miles away. The barn, in early November, was warm, cosy and well equipped and with 5 bedrooms all with en-suite facilities, it suited our mature walking group perfectly. Gastro pubs in the area were superb. Perhaps the only drawback was the fact that our canine companion had to be confined to the living area. We booked the barn on the basis of its pet-friendly credentials and were disturbed (as he was!) to find he was restricted in this way. The dog is friendly and well behaved but suffers from separation anxiety. The first night was a nightmare so one of us slept with him in the living area. Such restrictions should be made clear when booking.
