Lovely barn in a beautiful part of the country. Thank you!
The Bacons
Very convenient for exploring the whole of the north Norfolk coast. Pensthorpe is a must - lots to see and do. Blickling is wonderful - spent the whole day there. The barn is lovely.
R & L Wragg
Very nice barn conversion. A peaceful and relaxing holiday. Excellent meal at the Hunworth Bell. Creake Abbey is well worth a visit. Good shops and excellent cafe for lunch.
A & G Brookes
Thank you so much! The barn is lovely and we spent a couple of cosy nights in. We loved Holt and all the recommended places to eat -  The Feathers and The King's Head in Holt. Our favourite was the Hunworth Bell in the next village - absolutely amazing. Blakeney, Holkham beach, Burnham Market and Holt town centre are all worth visiting. We look forward to our next visit!
James and Emma
We loved it! Amazing stay. We went out a lot, including to see the fireworks and had so much fun.
Chris, Lisa, Betsy, Hattie & George
We have had an absolutely brilliant stay here. The sunsets have been amazing (even after two rainy days) - and so much to see and do.
Definitely returning here, thank you!
The Hicksons from Cheshire
We have had a great time in Norfolk and done so much. Brancaster beach is perfect for families. We saw the seals at Blakeney on a boat trip. We enjoyed the Hunworth Bell - excellent food. And so was The Kings Head in Holt. If you have a head for heights then Extreme Adventure was great fun. We have been lucky with the weather but we still would have had great fun!
Teressa, Kevin and Emma from London
Lovely holiday! The barn is beautiful and just what you need for a relaxing time, away from reality!

Tamsin & Andrew
The perfect family getaway - nice, quiet and beautiful surrounding locations such as Wells and Cromer (our favourites). The accommodation was wonderful - would definitely revisit! Loved every minute!
The Day Family
We had a super time, fortunate with the weather. Having a 6-year-old, the play area has been a life saver for us. Local people have been great, especially with the tips on where to go and where to eat. Cannot fault the barn - very comfortable and relaxing. Many thanks!
