“Fantastic house in beautiful situation.”
Reviewed September 23, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

It was welcoming, spacious and cosy. The heating system worked well. We were charmed by the ambience. And it is, of course, a lovely corner of Norfolk. The owner is extremely helpful and replies promptly to enquiries.

“absoultley faboulous”
Reviewed September 13, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

had a week here to celebrate 3 occasions mums 80th in september dad belated 85 and mum and dads belated 60th wedding anniversary. 11 adults and 2 children. What a place words cant describe it a place to die for faboulous setting loads of room although we werent in much as we had fab weather loads to do around all within 10 miles. Loved the old with the new furniture. Plenty of room everywhere, staying for a week could have done with more hanging space for clothes wasnt a problem as there were 3 irons. Am looking to book for my 60th in 3 yrs.Truley the best place we have all stayed in you have to go there

Thank you for your kind review. We are delighted to hear that you found Barn Drift to be so spectacular and hope to have you all back again soon! Thank you for pointing our that some rooms lacked hanging space, we have large wardrobes in all bedrooms except 3 where we have Shaker pegs for hanging, you'll be glad to hear that we have already asked the caretaker to add more pegs in these rooms.
