“Barn Drift - heaven on earth!”
Reviewed January 17, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We celebrated New Year at Barn Drift - 16 of us, friends and family and the dog! Barn Drift is in a fabulous location. Step outside and you have a choice of walking across the fields, and then through the nature reserve to the beach or to the lovely village of Cley with the shop Made in Cley selling gorgeous pottery and fabulous jewellery.
Excellent hospitable local pubs with very good food.
The house itself is stunning and beautifully appointed. Each bedroom is individually designed and the beds are supremely comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped (we cooked with ease dinner for 16 on each of 2 nights) and the huge sitting room with its wood burning stove is very cosy to lounge in on a winter evening. Views of sunset were spectacular. We would definitely recommend Barn Drift for a 5* break.

“Accommodation of the highest standard in North Norfolk”
Reviewed October 28, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We had the most wonderful stay with some friends in this stunning barn conversion. Drift Barn manages to combine 5 star accommodation (the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in) with space and privacy. It is beautifully decorated with many personal touches which makes Drift Barn the perfect place to stay.

“The perfect retreat near the coast in Norfolk”
Reviewed October 26, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We had the most wonderful stay in this stunning and beautifully renovated barn. There is so much light flooding through the house and a modern glass staircase make it a really stunning place to stay. Large and airy rooms give great space and you can easily hang out here with 16 people.

Everything has been thought of - hot water bottles and hairdryers...

Stunning views and fire pits. We had the best time.

“beautiful house and setting”
Reviewed October 4, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We have just returned from an amazing weekend to celebrate our marriage. The barn is set in the most beautiful area with stunning views of the sea and fields. The barn is well equipped and finished to such a high standard, and is perfect for a special occasion. The owner Alice could not do more to help and was so responsive - which made our stay relaxing. We do hope to return as all our guests had the most incredible time.

“Perfect venue for the wedding”
Reviewed October 4, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The location was ideal, we were blessed with great weather and took adavantage of the lovely garden. The house is extremely well equipped and the owner was more than helpful in making everything go to plan responding to queries in the months beforehand and taking deliveries on the weekend itself.

How helpful were the directions to the property? How easy was key pickup/access to the property?
Overall condition of the property Bedding & mattresses

Liked best: Size and location of the barn and also its facilities
Liked least: One small thing...the bath in our room was slippery when showering and it would be advisable for a bath mat to be provided.

“The Perfect Wedding Reception at Barn Drift!!!”
Reviewed September 4, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We hired Barn Drift for a week over August bank holiday weekend to host our wedding reception for 140 guests. The house and setting are both absolutely stunning and all of the guests agreed. The wedding suppliers all said they thought this was the most picturesque spot in Norfolk, so we feel very fortunate to have had it at Barn Drift. Alice was superb from start to finish, accommodating all of our requests to bring in outside suppliers(tipi marquee, glamping, toilet hire etc) and she was extremely responsive to all our emails and phone calls. Honestly couldn't speak more highly of this wonderful place and will certainly be staying again to relive the memories.

Perfect base to explore Norfolk and to have a great wedding!!!!!
