“Family Friendly”
Reviewed April 19, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We have just returned from a family holiday in Kestrel and found the barn to be ideal for this as it had to cater for everyones needs with age range 82 to 10 months. The property is of a good standard with modern fixtures and fittings and very comfortable...which is important on those rainy days (of which we had a few!) There's plenty to do in the surrounding area - we particularly enjoyed Felbrigg Hall and the seals at Horsey. Thanks to Ken and Nicola for all your obvious hard work in keeping these properties up to scratch and providing a lovely environment to spend a holiday.

“Rest and Relaxation nothing is too much trouble”
Reviewed March 15, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

What can I say, I brought a group of 10 ladies to the lodges, Ken and Nicola were fast to respond to questions prior to our stay and were very helpful in the run up ensuring we knew of catering options etc to make sure it was a memorable stay for our group. It was a Hen do which most owners shy away from but after a conversation with Ken and Nicola to explain our plans and about the guests they were more than happy to accommodate us.
All of the features in the houses were wonderful and we couldn't have asked for more and we were able to make full use of the hot tub even with it being March.

I booked a Tesco delivery for after check in but arrived a little later than expected I had no phone signal on route so hadn't been able to call Tesco, Nicola accepted the order and had got it all in the property for me before I arrived for which I was so grateful.
A slight problem with the hot tub as I had pressed the wrong button and was my user error, a quick text and Ken was around within 10 minutes and had reset it for us and didn't mind explaining how to do it despite it being 9am on a Sunday.

I have no bad words to say about the property or the owners they were fantastic and I not only hope to come back for a reunion with the same group again next year, but to visit with my own family also. thank you both for an amazing break!

“Birthday getaway”
Reviewed November 24, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

six of us stayed in the Kestrel and it was fantastic. Everything you could wish for, tastefully decorated giving the barn a real modern feel. Plenty of room for the six of us and we made use of the hot tub. The Lighthouse Inn served good food and great beer and the Landlord even gave us a lift back at closing time. The measure of any location is would you go back again and with Rookery Barns the answer is simple, yes we would.

“Our fabulous second home!”
Reviewed November 14, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Yes that's right, we love this place so much that we think of it as home! We have visited the Kestrel Barn for 6 consecutive years now... and I am pretty certain this will continue for as long as it is still there and we are still alive!!
The barn is in the perfect location with so many different things to do nearby. It is well equipped and has all the facilities we need. The towels were better this year too! ;0)
Ken and Nicola are very helpful and always there if we need anything.
The Barn is spacious and comfortable! The hot tub is brilliant, even in the cold weather - we just don't want to get out!!
Looking forward to our 7th stay next year! :0)
