Very Good

“We had an amazing stay”

Reviewed 21 May 2018

I booked this for my wife's surprise 50th Birthday, arranged for friends to get there ahead of us, and it was perfect. Everyone who stayed couldn't of been more complimentary, the location, accommodation and even the weather was awesome. We had some lovely walks, including a walk to the commodore for a few drinks. For a place to stay with some friends, you couldn't ask for more, it had everything! Many thanks

Owner's reply: So glad that you all had a great stay and the surprise Birthday was a success. Many thanks for staying with us.

“We would book this barn again in a Heartbeat!”

Reviewed 25 Jul 2014

We stayed at this lovely and peaceful barn a few days over two different business trips to Lowestoft. The barn is often rented out at weekends, but weekdays the owner allows last minute bookings on a per-room basis - if it is free. It means that if anyone else books a room, you share the common areas, e.g. kitchen, lounges. But we found that wasn't a problem, as we had the barn to ourselves most of the time and also, there were so many discreet sitting areas throughout the barn, you really can find your own space. The kitchen was amazingly well equipped, and everywhere was clean and decorated to a high standard. The room had plenty of storage, and the bed was so comfortable! If we could have stayed longer, we would have indulged in the many shelves of books and DVDs, or had a go at the games in the hall cupboard! There is a picnic table just outside the kitchen doors where we sat for morning coffee, and upstairs french doors led to an outdoor deck with table and chairs overlooking a broad expanse of Norfolk broads (our favourite spot for an evening glass of wine at sunset). There were even binoculars on hand for viewing the wildlife. Yet just 5 minutes away were shops and Oulton Broad with some fab pubs by the water, and 10 minutes away was the beach. The owner, Jan, never intruded but was always available to answer our questions or provide information about the area. The barn is also convenient for trips to other Norfolk and Suffolk villages too. We never wanted to leave and completely recommend this barn!!
