“Wonderful Christmas”

A party of 7 plus a small dog - we arrived at different times during Christmas Eve, everything was ready & welcoming for us. Nicki popped round to check we were ok. The house was cosy & we had plenty of hot water whenever needed ( especially after swimming in the lovely pool. Nicki had already put decorations & a tree up. There were goodies in the excellent fridge. We found all the crockery/cooking pans etc needed for a big Christmas dinner.
We enjoyed the surrounding area, visiting Wells next the Sea in beautiful warm, sunshine! Also visited Sandringham & were lucky enough to see the Royal family - an unexpected bonus. I would love to visit again.

Have just returned from our 2nd stay at the Granary - once again can't recommend this place enough - bottle of Bucks fizz and a mmmm strawberry and fresh cream cake awaited us in the fridge along with a few bits to get us started. My grandchildren were in the pool within the hour - they just love it there -
Its a great base so much to see in the area.
Would we go again - yep have already booked for next year
Thanks to Nikki for giving us the opportunity to stay at this great place

Reviewed April 12, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Had a lovely stay with extended family, we all loved th games room, and the children loved the pool! The barn is in a great location within easy reach of lots of places to visit. We really appreciated all the extras, particulary the wine and chocolate eggs!

“Fantastic Place, I Will Be Back!”
Reviewed October 12, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I stayed in the Granary Barn with friends and children under 5. This is the perfect place to get away and relax together. We intended to have a beach break but as we can't rely on the weather we opted for a place with a pool as well as being only a short drive to the seaside. This place was perfect!

The pool and games room were an amazing extra to an already great house. The bedrooms are lovely and the children thoroughly enjoyed the bunk bed room. Downstairs was spacious and it was lovely to have horses in the fields outside.

We were welcomed by an array of treats including a huge cream cake!

I will definitely stay here again, and would consider hiring the adjoining barn and inviting more people!

The only improvements I can recommend to the owners are, to fix the lock on the main bathroom door (no lock and young children equals zero privacy) and to perhaps have a quick once over with a duster or hoover as there were a lot of cobwebs. That's just because I'm not a fan of spiders though!

“What a fabulous place!”
Reviewed June 11, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Ten friends and I stayed at the Canister Hall Granary and West Barn last weekend. Going away all together is something we had spoken about for years but we had not managed to organise something. My friend said it was like trying to herd cats! Everyone was so excited when walking round into the court yard after passing the games room and indoor swimming pool. The barns are fabulous! They are very well equipped with thoughtful gifts for us on arrival. We all loved it and it was truly a fantastic weekend.
Nicky is very friendly and helpful and really cares that you have an excellent stay. All the rooms in the barns are in great condition and are comfortable and homely, there are lots of nice touches throughout.
We made good use of the pool and the games room I had forgotten how fun ping pong is! We enjoyed the snooker and pool that is available too. The private BBQ / patio area was a lovely spot to watch the sun go down. I also noticed that the barns were well equipped for families with children. I cannot recommend this accommodation enough!
Fakenham is only a few minutes drive away and the lovely seaside town of Wells-Next-The-Sea is about 20 minutes drive.
This place is probably one of Norfolk’s best kept secrets!

“A hidden gem in a beautiful location. Home away from home.”
Reviewed May 22, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I arranged to stay at the Granary and West Barn for my friends hen weekend. It was the perfect location, everyone commented on how lovely the accommodation was. Nicki provided a lovely welcome when we arrived by supplying a few treats and throughout the booking process she was really helpful. This accommodation managed to suit 10 different women's preferences that alone should show anyone how adaptable the barns are. My only wish is that we could have stayed there longer. I plan to book this accommodation again - I just need a reason! I would and will definitely recommend this accommodation to my friends and family.
