The Barns - Testimonials

"An amazing place to stay in every form! The hosts Tony and Amanda were very hospitable. They made our stay very comfortable and the breakfast was amazing! Loved the sausages. There is enough parking space and the rooms are super comfy and well maintained. If I am in the area again, the Barns will be the place to stay. The previous ratings were not wrong, it is an excellent place to stay. Keep up the great work! Nothing really! "

"Lovely place to stay for a peaceful and quiet break. Amanda and Tony are communicative and friendly hosts that I'm sure would be glad to go the 'extra mile' if you need them to. The Rooms are warm , comfortable and have a hint of history about them. The Breakfasts are wonderful and you can even visit the chickens that laid the eggs that you will, most probably, thoroughly enjoy! I would highly recommend a visit to The Barns and will be happy to stay again if we're in that area. "

Totally brilliant

" Very warm welcome, lovely room and refreshments (even supplied chocolate cake which was yummy). We were house hunting in the area for a few days and Tony and Amanda could not have been more helpful.
We have already recommended this B&B to our friends and family. Breakfast was wonderful, large choice and fresh tasty food , especially the bacon. Very comfortable bed and lovely bathroom.
Dislikes: Too short. "

Lovely Place

" We had a lovely room, with tea & coffee. When we arrived we were given a cup cake to have with a cup of tea, which was nice, as it was my birthday.We had a lovely cooked breakfast. With home produce. They told us places where we could get a nice meal night. Very enjoyable stay. Nothing was to much trouble . Amanda and Tony were very friendly and helpful. They Knew the area, and told you the best places to visit. "

" This place was outstanding , a real Norfolk welcome , nothing was to much trouble, room was first class with so many touches you would not find any where... else. Including welcome cakes in room as well as the standard biscuits. Breakfast was served in front of a log burner lovely on this chilly morning . There was a ample table of choices of local preserves juices and cereal followed by choice of hot breakfast that was cooked to order all off which was local products topped off with thick fresh cooked toast , no supermarket bargains to be found !! And to top the whole visit were the owners of the barns who were gracious, friendly without being gushing I would openly recommend "The Barns" to everyone. And are looking forward to our next visit.

"Having stayed in a large number of top class hotels, I have to say that this Bed & Breakfast rated up there with them, it far exceeded many 3 star hotels... and was equal to a number of 4 star hotels - even exceeded one or two I have stayed in. Clean, spacious and comfortable room with many extras such as bottled water and delicious homemade cake on arrival; well appointed shower room and comfortable armchairs; even had lovely wine glasses in the room and the owners happy for you to enjoy a glass of wine in the room - a real bonus after a day of driving! Wonderful, freshly cooked breakfast and a supply of homemade preserves. Can not recommend it highly enough if you are staying in this area."

"Best B & B we have ever stayed at!!!"

We had the most restful holiday for many years. Even though the British weather let us down on a few days we were always assured of a very warm welcome every morning at breakfast. So very friendly and nothing seemed too much trouble, always going that extra mile which can be lacking in so many establishments these days. Will definately make this known to family and friends!

We were made very welcome by Tony and Amanda. The room was well appointed and the bathroom facilities were 5*. Amanda's breakfasts were excellent and the produce local and fresh.Tony and Amanda were also full of local knowledge and were always happy to go the extra mile. The location was perfect and the accomodation was very good. Although we were paying for our stay we felt as if we were staying with good friends.

"Just what we were looking for"

We were looking for good-quality overnight accomodation in the right area, near to where the boat trips for the seals go from. The room was large, in an annexe with a lovely big bed, large bathroom and big shower. Tea/Coffee and TV, book of local facilities, etc in room, everything you would expect. Breakfast was served in a small barn with other guests and we have usful information from charming hosts about local area and a good pub to eat!

"An accommodation gem for our too brief a stop-over.

No effort was spared to make our stay an enjoyable experience, even down to booking an evening meal for us at a nearby pub when we checked in and, the following morning before we checked out, photocopying for us a map and guidance instructions for an attractive walk in the area."
