When we arrived at 4pm as stated there was a key in the hall and directions to our room there was a notice on the door explaining why. When we went into our room I was pleasantly surprised, it was beautiful, chocs, cake, dressing gown, magazines nothing to complain about whatsoever, spotless.

Could not recommend highly enough. We spent just one night in the Barn Owl Suite (wish it had been longer!), with a fab couple of days on the gorgeous beach just up the road at Sea Palling and can't wait to return. The suite was gorgeous, absolutely huge and plenty of space for 2 adults and 3 young children, and... More

Its always nice to have such good reviews from people when they are staying with a family as we try to make sure you all feel relaxed and at home.

Its just a really lovely little place in the country, and its beautiful. My partner and I stayed for just the one night, but it was perfect. From the communal lounge and gardens to the complimentary tea and cake on arrival, its just so well done. We had tea and watched the swallows flying around the courtyard. We went to... More

My husband and I stayed for three nights for a friends wedding that was being held nearby. The suite was superb, and well appointed, the management were super friendly and helpful. A thoroughly brilliant place to stay- could find no faults whatsoever. Would recommend to anyone.

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.
