Reviewed 4 weeks ago for a stay in July 2018

Brilliant Holiday Cottage, the peace & tranquility were divine & hard to get used to for a day or 2. The owners are the salt of the earth. So gentle & understanding, picking up on individual needs ie that our son had a disability, and the owner came over each eve to get him to assist in letting the horses out. We entertained many visitors there & they ALL commented on how perfect the spot was

“Great little cluster of holiday accommodation. ”
Reviewed October 29, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Lovely home from home in very quiet spot. Very well equipped cottage. Beds super comfy and hot water all of the time. You definitely need your own car here and it was a great base for exploring Norfolk. Nowhere was more than a 45 minute drive. Our only criticism is that upstairs is let out separately and this time was let to some scaffolders who got up at 4.30 every morning to go to work and the noise they made woke us all including the dog.

“Beautifully decorated modern well equipped dog friendly rural retreat”
Reviewed August 4, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Clearly the owners have put a lot of thought into the decor and facilities here. Even coordinating towels! Real attention to detail and spotlessly clean which made it very homely and welcoming. The kitchen is the best equipped I have ever experienced, with lots of workspace, utensils and fully integrated appliances including washing machine. Nice comfy sofas too! Great shower!

Tony and his wife are lovely people, we felt completely welcome and at ease. They are there if you need them but leave you to enjoy your holiday. Very relaxed

The property is on the owners grounds with shared parking and small private garden with use of their own shared garden should you want more open space. There is a small stream separating the two. Well kept grounds.

Be mindful that the top floor of the property is rented out - not obvious from picture/description. There was someone staying whilst we were there but didn't cause any noise issues for us at all.

The property is rural and you will need a car to go anywhere. It's narrow country lanes too so don't expect shops, pubs etc in walking distance. This was fine for us as we are out in the day and prefer cosy nights in.

The owners have lovely dogs themselves and are really chilled with dogs. Genuinely dog 'friendly'. Just need to keep on lead in grounds as chickens and horses around.

All in all a lovely stay.

“A Rural Retreat”
Reviewed June 12, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

Had a fabulous stay at The Haybarn. The Haybarn is one of 3 properties available to rent. All are dog friendly. The facilities are excellent too. We enjoyed a couple of days where the weather was glorious and we were able to sit outside on the verandah overlooking the pond. Ducks, horses and chickens are residents on the farm. The owners dog was seen riding on the back of one of horses too!

Downside would be that the nearest pub was a 2.2 mile walk and with our slow coach of a dog we were hungry and thirsty by the time we got there. But the wait was worth it. If you do stay at the Haybarn you should visit the Windmill Inn at Necton.
