The Haybarn description

Holiday home
The Haybarn is a cottage which as its name suggests, has been converted from a hay barn, and is located in the hamlet of West End, near to the village of Necton, just five miles from the market town of Swaffham in Norfolk. With one double bedroom, one twin and a family shower room, this cottage is ideal for four people. The rest of the open plan accommodation comprises a fitted kitchen, a dining area and a sitting room with an electric fire. To the outside of the cottage is a garden with outdoor furniture, an unfenced stream and large pond and shared use of the other garden areas, as well as off road parking for two cars. Set in a beautiful part of the Norfolk countryside and with the whole of East Anglia to discover, The Haybarn is a fabulous holiday cottage all year round.

The village of Necton is situated between the market towns of Swaffham and Dereham in Norfolk and hosts a welcoming pub with restaurant, a village store with butchers and a post office. Enjoy the Peddars Way and the Norfolk Coastal Path, offering 93 tranquil miles of picturesque Norfolk countryside close by, great for walking, cycling and horse riding. The market town of Dereham is just 6 miles away offering a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants and a local farmers' market every fortnight.

Picturesque rolling Fens, unspoilt beaches, and pretty waterways in East Anglia is a dream holiday destination. Norfolk offers beaches, saltmarshes and quaint villages whilst equally as charming are the coast and countryside of Suffolk.

So relaxing. The Haybarn was so well equipped that we didn't have to worry about anything. Very dog friendly.We were made to feel very welcome on arrival but then left alone to get on and enjoy our break away. Highly recommended.

A wonderful cottage that the owners have taken great care and pride in making the cottage facilitate all your needs. Excellent location to have quality time away in the country but good access to towns and cities. I will be booking to go again and again. Excellent accommodation, would recommend to anyone.

Quiet, peaceful surroundings with the freedom to use the large garden. Lots of birds to watch for an enthusiast, including a Kingfisher. It was nice to see the horses, ducks and chickens. Very pleasant owners. Space for parking and it felt secure as the large gates to the property were kept shut. We liked the double doors opening into the garden.

The Haybarn was absolutely delightful. The owners were charming hosts, and we especially enjoyed the proximity to horses, chooks and sometimes dogs. We loved taking strolls through the surrounding lane ways or car trips to nearby attractions such as Norwich, Great Yarmouth and places nearer such as Dereham. The countryside was lovely and convenient to many things. A very special memory is watching the sunsets over the fields through the western windows of the cottage. We also enjoyed the pond and waterway just outside the door. So beguiling. Thanks so much to the owners for a great stay and some lovely chats.

The kitchen was very well equipped with everything that anyone could ever need, and the quality of the kitchenware is first class, we cooked a full Christmas dinner with no problems at all. The surrounding gardens and outdoor space is lovely, the cottage is quite remote but we do like that, very quiet. The owners were very welcoming and helpful but left you alone to enjoy your holiday. The cottage is very nicely furnished, decorated and very warm with a nice shower. The bed and pillows were comfortable, and the towels were soft and fluffy with a good array. The outside veranda was great, and I can imagine perfect on a nice summers evening! This is a lovely cottage, and we did enjoy our stay.

Enjoyed Norfolk very much and visited several National Trust properties. We were lucky with good weather so we had some lovely walks with our two dogs. Very dog friendly pubs, especially the Peddars Inn at Sporle, they made our dogs very welcome with treats and water! All in all a lovely holiday.

Whoever put the selection of inventory into this property should be congratulated as we could not find any thing that had not been catered for. This is something we have not come across before. Well done.

A lovely peaceful retreat. The property is in a rural location, the nearest pub is 2 miles away. Food at The Windmill in Neston is lovely - recommend booking. We had a wonderful time.

Our hosts at The Haybarn were charming and very helpful. We appreciated the lack of traffic noise and no light pollution at night. Good fields that were open to public access, and we enjoyed the contrast in scenery between Devon and the East Coast area.

The property has been renovated beautifully. A well equipped kitchen and a lovely little garden, it was nice to sit on the covered patio watching the ducks and chickens. The situation is excellent and it's wonderfully quiet. The dinner we had at the Windmill Inn was superb!

The cottage was everything and more. We had a lovely few days of peace and quiet and we were lucky enough to be able to take our dog. The local pub was very friendly and the food was excellent, we would recommend this also.

The accommodation was of a high standard and the owners were genuinely nice people. We had reasonably good weather and were able to sit outside of an evening with a glass of wine. Very tranquil location. Fairly central for most things in north Norfolk and the Broads.
Mr Haywood

The property far exceeded our expectations and was beautifully decorated. It was very clean and tidy. Everything you could want was at the property. It was well lit and in lovely surroundings.
July 2013
Spent a lovely week here with the family in april. Very welcoming an ideal location. Only disadvantage was the lack of restaurants and pubs that accept dogs. This however would not prevent us from staying here again.
July 2013
The service we received from the owners was wonderful, upon arriving we got a real warm welcome and then told if we needed anything we only had to ask. The barn was beautifully decorated, very clean and comfortable. A generously sized shower was lovely to use also. The location was very rural, very peaceful which is what we look for. The beautifully kept gardens with stream, pond and secret gardens were private and great to sit in on an evening. To get to the nearest shop and pub etc. you really needed to use the car as they were quiet a way off from the barn. The only let down was that it didn't mention in the details that you would have other guests living above you...which at times was very noisy as you can hear every footstep which they take.

Had a fabulous stay at The Haybarn. The Haybarn is one of 3 properties available to rent. All are dog friendly. The facilities are excellent too. We enjoyed a couple of days where the weather was glorious and we were able to sit outside on the verandah overlooking the pond. Ducks, horses and chickens are residents on the farm. The owners dog was seen riding on the back of one of horses too! Downside would be that the nearest pub was a 2.2 mile walk and with our slow coach of a dog we were hungry and thirsty by the time we got there. But the wait was worth it. If you do stay at the Haybarn you should visit the Windmill Inn at Necton.
