The East Anglia region

Beautiful costal walks along promonades,cliff tops or vast expanses of sandy beaches, this superb birdwatching location with its numerous statley homes and quaint interesting market towns are but a few of the attractions to this special part of North Norfolk. There's Norwich with its amazing Cathederal and King's Lynn Town both steeped in history. For good old fashioned seaside ambiance take the Steam Train from Holt and chugg majestically along Norfolks famous 'Poppy Line' to Sherringham, or take a boat trip from Blakney to see the seals, or you could spend a day messing around on the water on one of the Norfolk Broads.


Fakenham is a Market Town that offers something for everyone, there's a nine hole golf course, a driving range, a sports centre with tennis and squash courts and indoor bowling, a cinema, tenpin bowling alley and indoor childrens play centre, its weekly farmers and bric a brac market and the local auction take place on a Thurdsay in the town centre. Sculthorpe Owl and Nature reserve and Pensthorpe Wildlike Park famous for BBC's Nature Watch flag the town on either side, if its action you are looking for then look no further than Fakenhams' own National Hunt Race Course, if its history and culture Castle Acre Ruins, if its Arts and Crafts Sandringham Fair, and for fun and frivolity visit Norfolk around Carnival time when Wells Cromer and Sherringham show their true colours.

"Stunning barn conversions, amazing weekend."

I booked the 8 person barn (Nicky has a 6 next door as well) for a group of friends. On arrival the barn was immaculate and could not have been more welcoming, the owners are all absolutely lovely too… More

"Good location and facilities. Sleeping arrangements not as described."

We had stayed at this location last summer in East Barn and were completely happy with it. We deliberately chose this alternative property as it stated it had one double bed and four single beds where… More

I am both surprised and somewhat disappointed with this review,we do our utmost to ensure that all of our guests are happy and satisfied with the accommodation and the facilities here at Cannister Hall Barns, I can only apologize for the statement on the bookings log re: the beds - this will, now it has been brought to my attention be amended immediately - however we are diligent about informing potential guests of the accommodation set up. I spoke to the guests to check that they were happy and the lighting situation was mentioned - my offer to supply additional lamps was turned down, the sleeping arrangements were not brought to my attention so obviously I was unaware and unable to addresses what has now been identified as a problem. Wifi here at it's best is intermittent however we have ordered a further BT line in the hope it will alleviate this problem. I live here, it is my home but unfortunately it appears I was out on the one occasion the guests knocked at my door to speak to me. On departure I chatted at length with the guests and again there was no indication of their dissatisfaction. We will of course take their comments on board and address all the issues raised as we pride ourselves on what we offer here and would not want any future guests to be in any way deterred from booking West Barn - what is and i quote from previous reviews 'a little gem'. Please be assured we want your stay with us to be special from the moment you arrive, we will provide personal and immediate attention to any problems you may experience providing of course they are brought to our attention. Kind regards, Nicky.

"Fantastic, relaxing break!"

Really enjoyed our stay at West Barn, with our two young boys ( 2 & 5 yrs old). Quiet, comfortable and relaxing accommodation. Owners were great and couldn't do enough for us. Lovely location and perfect for exploring Norfolk. The pool and games room were a major plus and we used both daily, even though the weather was good. We will definitely be back!

"Wonderful stay - perfect hosts and great facilities"

We had a fantastic stay at West Barn and the Granary over the June Jubilee weekend. We were amazed that the barns were available at this busy time, as all the holiday rentals that looked good were fully booked. I think it is due to the current owners only recently taking over. We were a little apprehensive about what to expect, however the whole holiday exceeded our expectations.

Nicky & Nigel (?) the owners were great - so accomodating and happy to help out with anything. There was wine, bread, jam, milk, cakes, etc. on arrival, which was great and most unexpected.

The barns themselves were gorgeous - full of character (lots of old exposed brickwork and beams, etc). Having both barns worked out really well, as there is an interconnecting door, which makes it like one large cottage.

The facilities were fantastic. The pool is great and is only chest high at the deepest point, so good for the kids. There are a couple of other barns that we think are owned separately and we did see a couple of other families, however everytime we went in the pool or the games room they were empty. The games room is huge with a full size snooker table, 2 x pool tables, 2 x table tennis and table football. It did look like the local cat sleeps on one of the pool tables!! Also if you are a table tennis pro, you may want to bring your own bats, but the ones there were great for us amateurs!

The location was perfect - just off an A road between Swaffham and Fakenham, but loads of countryside around to enjoy. We drove to Wells next the Sea, which has a fantastic beach, nice little town and tonnes of stuff for the kids to do. I would definitely recommend a visit or 2.

I would definitely recommend this place if you are taking kids - the pool, neighbouring horses, seaside, etc. will keep them busy for the whole week. We also had 3 teenagers with us and the games room kept them occupied for hours.
