We had a lovely stay at Owl Barn. On arrival we were greeted with a well-equipped hamper and the kitchen was well stocked for everything we needed. During our stay we visited Sandringham, Pensthorpe nature reserve, Bewilderwood and Holkham house. All are highly recommended, and were thoroughly enjoyed by our children. We had an issue with one of the shower drains but it was dealt with swiftly. We would definitely stay here again!

One of the best properties we have stayed in - lovely and warm (one of our priorities) and excellent kitchen equipment (we do a lot of cooking). It didn't matter that the weather was grey - we didn't want to go out. MS, Hertfordshire

The property was so peaceful and spacious and very well equipped. We would have loved to stay longer. The Barn was a beautiful place to stay. Near to beaches and various attractions. The garden was a real bonus for two children, the the tractors and the Owl to watch. PB, Hertfordshire
