Customer Comments

  1. A beautiful well equipped barn conversion in an ideal quiet location. Secluded safe gardens for the children to run around also a trampoline and table tennis, plus a snooker table for the adults. June 2012.
  2. Fantastic property - had a real WOW factor when you walked in and looked even better and more spacious than the photos. Delightful owners. Great welcome pack. March 2012.
  3. The property is very well designed and furnished with high quality fittings. It was ideal for our family weekend and had lots of surprising extras. There is room for different individual interests e.g reading, wifi, snooker, trampolining to take place, but at the same time all age groups still feel part of the whole group because of the easy interaction in the different spaces. Sept 2011.
  4. Spacious and well equipped property. Very thoughtful owners catering for the very young to the elderly and less mobile - even dog bowls provided! Fantastic welcome pack. Our party of nine plus two dogs would love to visit again. Aug 2011.
  5. Beautifully furnished, lots of extra touches that made it a pleasure to stay in; very welcoming and friendly. We’ve stayed in a number of self catering cottages over the years and this was the very best. Oct 2010.
  6. The virtual tour did not do the accommodation justice. On entering the house had such a Wow! factor! Sept 2010.
  7. Beautiful barn very light, airy and comfortable they have thought of everything. July 2010.
  8. A lovely welcome pack was provided on our arrival, with something for everyone. The lounge is absolutely huge, as is the whole house. We went for a surprise 60th and everyone from the youngest (2) to the oldest (60) loved the holiday cottage. Will definitely be returning. Great location for lots of attractions in Norfolk. June 2010.
  9. An amazing property. Spacious, light, beautifully furnished and well equipped. We certainly hope to return and have already recommended the property to friends. Excellent facilities for less able guests with downstairs bedrooms and super shower room. April 2010.
  10. The owners next door we’re lovely. The property is just beautiful. As a family we have stayed in many lovely cottages on short breaks. This one is certainly one of the best. A truely five star property. April 2010.
  11. Very high spec. Amazing welcome pack, beautiful cot (not travel cot but full size cot with excellent bedding. Very clean. Loved it! March 2010.
