Friendly greeting. Very quiet and pretty surroundings.Well equiped but the bed was a little hard. We also think that the kitchen stools would have been better with backs and padded seats to them. Loved the eggs. Good base for touring.

Conveninet, comfortable and good value

Though a little off the beaten track, the location is actually very convenient for touring by car. The accommodation is well-appointed, comfortable and provides a relaxing, rural atmosphere in the evenings. The owners are on hand and very helpful. The only real drawback is the provision of a breakfast bar with high stools instead of a kitchen table and chairs (no room for the latter). We recommend the accommodation highly and would re-book if on holiday in the area again.

A time to chill out

Loved this holiday rental. Lovely accommodation, all you need for a base to come back to after a day exploring. Owners very friendly and helpful. Situated on a farm with horses, hens and 'laughing ducks'. Your own private space outside. Ours was a decked area by the stream that runs through the property with a small summerhouse. Table and chairs for 2 to have a glass of wine in the sun. Nearest pub and shop a car ride away, approx 2 miles. We used the Windmill to eat on a couple of occasions. Norwich not far away, lovely place to visit. A trip on the broads is a must. I would use this rental again and recommend it to others.



A truly fantastic place to stay, a very warm welcome from Tony when we arrived. Milk in the fridge for a cuppa tea, and even biscuits. The Hayloft is in the perfect location for touring Norfolk, and in a very quiet location.
The kitchen had all the pots, pans, dishes etc that you will ever need. We will go back sometime in the summer and enjoy the patio that overlooked the brook.

All in all a beautifully maintained Hayloft and surroundings.

Even though we got our check out day wrong, Tony and his wife were extremely nice about it,.
We will be back.

A maze of cobbled streets and interesting shops plus castle and museum. Visited old friends in Swaffam and family in Holbeach. Enjoyed every minute of our week. Very friendly welcome from the owner of the property.
