The farm is a member of the High Level Stewardship scheme which promotes the conservation of wildlife. The barn gets its name from the Kings Beck stream that runs alongside the barn, where guests are welcome to have a go at fishing!

The barn is set in an idyllic location for bird watchers, and there is an active owl box with resident Barn Owl in view of the kitchen & family sitting room.

"Stunning barn conversion with everything possibly needed to enjoy your stay"
After following excellent directions we found the barn and were delighted to discover it was even better than the photographs and description given on the web site. It was clean, spacious yet warm and cosy at the same time. Everything we needed for our weekend was provided and we would not hesitate to book again next time we holiday in that area.
Thank you for your kind comments. We are delighted you enjoyed the barn and would love to welcome you back if you choose to holiday in Norfolk again. Kindest regards, Sarah.

"Beautiful luxurious barn, family of 10 and 2 dogs had a wonderful break."
The barn is beautiful and huge, even with 10 of us and 2 dogs we never felt on top of each other. Beds are huge and lovely egyption cotton sheets. The barn really is a home from home with all you would possibly need along with lots of lovely personal touches eg;; homemade cake, wine, toiletries etc. Communication with the owner with Sarah was fantastic and she really went out of her way to assist where possible. We were extremely lucky with the english weather so able to make full use of the outside space as well which was beautiful.
Thank you for your comments. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay & we hope to be able to welcome you again soon. Kindest regards, Sarah
