This is an amazing destination. The location itself is in a great place of Norfolk with most tourist areas accessible within an hours drive. The house itself is immaculate. We couldn't believe the high quality finish of the location. The building is stunning, and the facilities amazing. Having 2 dishwashers a large range cooker and a long dining table was just right for our party of 15. The first evening we cooked in and to open the drawers and find Le Creuset pots and pans told us we were in a place of class. The internet connected TV in the lounge was amazing and acts as a digital art work frame when not in use (very clever.) Also the welcome gifts were a nice touch. We even went to Holt and bought some of the products to take home as they were so good. I can't recommend this house enough.
A fantastic house; a beautiful setting near the beach, lots of space and very comfortable. Everything was easy and everyone was happy!
Thank you for a wonderful weekend.
Wonderful luxury accommodation with beautiful views over the sea. Great outdoor entertaining space and really special interiors to a very high standard. Perfect for our family gathering.
WOW....A truly fantastic location to take a group of my friends away to celebrate my birthday. The Barn conversion would be one of the best that I have seen and is in a truly magical setting. The Barn is fully equipped for everything that you would require and close proximity to the beach and some really cool country pubs. Will most definitely stay again and can highly recommend.
11 of us stayed at Barn Drift and the space swallowed us up. The bathrooms amazingly had instant hot water. The beds were comfortable with noticeably high quality linen. The kitchen was very well equipped with loads of China, mugs galore and cutlery. There were 20 of us one evening and the drawing room was comfortable for all for drinks, before we went to the kitchen/ dining room to eat.
A hog roast outside in the sun worked perfectly in the part walled garden. Children were able to play soft ball cricket on another lawn and table tennis on the outdoor fixed table. It is large but homely and just works. Fabulous views, simply magical.
Close to the villages of Cley, Salthouse and Blakeney, easy walk to the beach through thenCley Marshes nature reserve. Seal trips from Morston. The house is beautifully decorated and comfortable, lots of space for us all. The table-tennis table was in almost constant use! Fully equipped, we kept coming across stuff we didn't know about, we were still doing that shortly before we left.
I booked Barn Drift for a family gathering to celebrate my 65th birthday.Our party consisted of grandparents, children and grandchildren aged 11yrs, 7yrs and 2yrs. It was planned to be a week full of fun and with plenty of planned activities to keep the children happy. The outdoor space at Barn Drift was magnificent for doing just that with outdoor table tennis, sprawling lawns to enjoy pétanque, ball and racquet games and even for some golf practice.The weather was extremely kind and the huge patio and upper terrace and fire pits and BBQ were well used. The indoor chess.board was a great hit and the 2 eldest grandchildren were soon licking the grown ups into shape. TV's in both the playroom and the sitting room meant that no sporting events were missed.The house was a delight and so comfortable without it feeling so precious that the grandchildren needed restraining constantly. The interior decor was utterly charming with books and memorabilia everywhere.A warm lived in feel with many personal touches that gave the house lots of personality (often not found in some holiday rentals). The owner (Alice) was a joy to deal with.Nothing was too much trouble and one got the feeling that she took a personal delight in the bookings and celebrations of her guests.Every need was catered for including arrangement of beds, availability of cots, extra linen etc.The bedrooms were so individual, again with charming personal touches and oh so comfy beds.Barn Drift is an exceptional property with amazing and varied views of beautiful rural Norfolk all around with rolling fields and churches in the distance and in other directions views across the marshes to the sea.The location was beautifully private down a farm track and yet within minutes of Cley and Blakeney.I feel a sense of nostalgia having spent time in this beautiful home where we were made to feel valued and welcome guests.
