    We very much enjoyed our stay in the Country Barn. It was an ideal place to spend our Golden Wedding anniversary with the family. There was plenty of space for everyone, and the owners had thought of everything to make the stay as comfortable as possible. My only problem was getting onto the double bed, which was very high off the ground! The Country Barn is rather isolated, and as I didn't have a Sat. Nav. I had to rely on maps to get around. I found the OS Explorer map 252 ideal for exploring the narrow country lanes around the property. Its remoteness is part of the charm of the property. Local amenities were scattered. We did find the nearest Waitrose in North Walsham ( 15 minutes drive). The 'Goat Inn' in Skeyton was worth a visit - very good food, but not cheap. The nearest beach is at Mundesley ( about 30 minutes drive)- a beautiful beach in a village which is not too commercialised. We would happily go again, if the need to accommodate our family group of 9 arises in future.
