“One of the best holiday rentals in the UK! Loved the Cottage and Stay!”
Reviewed September 9, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

When we booked the cottage on a very short notice, we did not know what to expect and arrived late evening at Fakenham. First impressions, great looking place, well maintained, and the extra perks like the pool, snooker tables and the farm were an advantage.
We had a pleasant stay inspite of the weather and found the place very convenient. Must go, Must stay!

“Fantastic accomodation and location”
Reviewed September 1, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Have stayed at east barn for 7 years in a row. Haven't got a bad word to say about it. The accomodation has been perfect and continues to be even though the "kids" are now young adults. We all still love the pool, games room and the chance to play family cricket and football in the field. It is the perfect place to explore the beautiful surrounding countryside and coast.

“Fantastic stay”
Reviewed March 17, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Had a great time a the Barn. First impression was "wow". Felt so homely from the moment we walked through the door. The barn is in a lovely courtyard, and inside it is very well laid out, with dining room table and living area, with kitchen to the rear and a shower room on the ground floor, and 3 good sized bedrooms upstairs, 1 double, 1 twin and 1 bunk room, with bathroom across the landing. The open brickwork, and the wooden cladding on the walls on the landing give this place an authentic barn feel, and looks spectacular!

Opposite the barn is the fantastic heated swimming pool! Spent a lot of time in there, splashing around, playing ball. The pool is fairly shallow, around 3ft at the shallow end and 4ft 5ish in the deep end, making it very suitable for children. The pool is also a very good size, approx 20m in length, 7m wide, which was more than enough for the 2 of us. The pool is communal, so dont mind jumping in with your neighbours :)

Attached to the pool room is the games room, with full sized snooker table, 2 full size English Pool tables, 2 table-tennis tables and table football, all included with the price.

Overall we were impressed with the barn and complex, and would definitely return sometime in the future.
