We really did not expect Dairy Barns to be the Norfolk equivalent of the Ritz. But once you find it - don't confuse with a similarly named farm a mile or so away - it is splendid. Our room was a split level suite with huge bed and two televisions (but no DVD player) plus an outdoor area. The breakfast... More

Many thanks for taking the time to review your stay with us. Lots of our guests either bring bikes with them or hire them locally and really enjoy the experience. All rooms should have DVD players either built into the TV's or separate so I will take a look and make sure there is one in the room. Thank you... More

Just back from two nights at Dairy Barns. It's hard to add anything that the other reviews have not covered. To summarise, best service, best staff, best accommodation and definitely the best breakfast we have had at a bed and breakfast. All the others could learn a lot from this establishment, well done Hannah and team. Will be back.

If you are considering a stay here, don't hesitate. It is perfection. Idyllic setting, fabulous hosts. High quality furnishings and fittings, tasteful interiors, character, plenty of wonderful places to experience. On I could rave. Something for everyone. A downside? Well if you polish off the unbelievably delicious breakfasts you will hardly be able to eat your evening meal :-)

We had a fantastic 2 days staying at Dairy barns. The farm is lovely and so are the rooms. The staff couldn't be any friendlier or more helpful. We spent the day visiting a number of seaside villages along the coast. Holt was a very nice village with an amazing tea room (Folly Tea room). For a nice walk i... More
