“Fantastic Place, I Will Be Back!”
Reviewed October 12, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I stayed in the Granary Barn with friends and children under 5. This is the perfect place to get away and relax together. We intended to have a beach break but as we can't rely on the weather we opted for a place with a pool as well as being only a short drive to the seaside. This place was perfect!

The pool and games room were an amazing extra to an already great house. The bedrooms are lovely and the children thoroughly enjoyed the bunk bed room. Downstairs was spacious and it was lovely to have horses in the fields outside.

We were welcomed by an array of treats including a huge cream cake!

I will definitely stay here again, and would consider hiring the adjoining barn and inviting more people!

The only improvements I can recommend to the owners are, to fix the lock on the main bathroom door (no lock and young children equals zero privacy) and to perhaps have a quick once over with a duster or hoover as there were a lot of cobwebs. That's just because I'm not a fan of spiders though!

“What a fabulous place!”
Reviewed June 11, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Ten friends and I stayed at the Canister Hall Granary and West Barn last weekend. Going away all together is something we had spoken about for years but we had not managed to organise something. My friend said it was like trying to herd cats! Everyone was so excited when walking round into the court yard after passing the games room and indoor swimming pool. The barns are fabulous! They are very well equipped with thoughtful gifts for us on arrival. We all loved it and it was truly a fantastic weekend.
Nicky is very friendly and helpful and really cares that you have an excellent stay. All the rooms in the barns are in great condition and are comfortable and homely, there are lots of nice touches throughout.
We made good use of the pool and the games room I had forgotten how fun ping pong is! We enjoyed the snooker and pool that is available too. The private BBQ / patio area was a lovely spot to watch the sun go down. I also noticed that the barns were well equipped for families with children. I cannot recommend this accommodation enough!
Fakenham is only a few minutes drive away and the lovely seaside town of Wells-Next-The-Sea is about 20 minutes drive.
This place is probably one of Norfolk’s best kept secrets!

“A hidden gem in a beautiful location. Home away from home.”
Reviewed May 22, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I arranged to stay at the Granary and West Barn for my friends hen weekend. It was the perfect location, everyone commented on how lovely the accommodation was. Nicki provided a lovely welcome when we arrived by supplying a few treats and throughout the booking process she was really helpful. This accommodation managed to suit 10 different women's preferences that alone should show anyone how adaptable the barns are. My only wish is that we could have stayed there longer. I plan to book this accommodation again - I just need a reason! I would and will definitely recommend this accommodation to my friends and family.

“Fantastic accommodation and location”
Reviewed April 20, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Stayed here in a group of 8 (4 adults and 4 children aged 9yrs to 10 months). The complex of accommodation is very well maintained giving a great first impression. The Granary Barn itself is furnished and decorated to a very high standard. Warm, welcoming, with lots of helpful and thoughtful additions (eg night light in bunk bed room, toys for children, even a cream cake and Easter Eggs!). A very friendly welcome and the children loved the pool and running around in the field, Dad's appreciated the games room too. Lots to do around the area, perfect family holiday venue.

“Highly recommended holiday cottages ....”
Reviewed March 30, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We stayed at Granary barn as a mixture of family and friends of various ages. The accommodation was itself was very clean and very well presented. The facilities available of the large games room and indoor pool were a huge hit with all the teenagers and adults alike and great fun was had by all.
Huge thank you to Nicky for making us feel so welcome and all the goodies and essentials that were there on our arrival .....will definitely be booking to stay again.

“Absolutely Lovely Barn, Facilities & Hosts”
Reviewed January 8, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

person found this review helpful

Having stayed in lots of holiday rentals I really cannot praise this barn complex enough. The warm welcome extended to us with lots of delightful treats, for both children and adults, left for us by the owners was beyond the call of duty. The Granary barn was really homely with a well kitted out kitchen, large dining table, and comfortable chairs and sofas. Beds were very comfortable and plenty of space for 4 adults and 4 children.
The swimming pool was large and warm and was an excellent distraction for children as was the games room proving table football, snooker tables, large billiards table and table tennis tables - all for free. Although we didn't use them there was also free laundry and drying facilities attached to the games room.
Lovely stay, lovely hosts, lovely location - we will no doubt return.

“Wonderful barns, great position”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Have just returned from a weekend break with 7 female friends. We rented Granary Barn and the adjacent West Barn so that we could really spread out and relax. This meant we had 7 (very comfy)bedrooms and 5 bathrooms between us which was great. The barns are very attractively furnished, welcoming and spotlessly clean. All mod cons including dishwasher/ flat screen tv etc in each barn and the lovely surprise of wine, nibbles, and cake as well as tea, coffee, milk etc. The barn has a patio area where you could barbecue ( or just sit and sip wine in the sun as we did!) Onsite (just across the courtyard) is a lovely pool and adjoining large games room (table tennis, pool, etc). Easy access to North Norfolk coast (about 30 minutes away) and also Burnham Market, Holt etc.
Really lovely weekend, definitely hope to return.
