The Barn is an absolutely beautiful cottage with a large amount of space for the dogs to move about in and relax. The paddock and meadow were great outside space to allow the dogs to run off some energy first thing in the morning. If you want a peaceful get away with owners who are completely dog friendly, helpful and relaxed in a beautiful cottage then I would highly recommend The Barn.

The owner was a very welcoming host and very professional in her management of the cottages. The Barn was fabulous - I could live there - and it's very unusual to find such beautiful doggie friendly accommodation and grounds.

I think it was the best holiday cottage we have stayed in, the owner could not do enough for us. We loved the hot tub.

The feeling of total relaxation. Not having to worry about your dog, walking was available on the spot in the fields without having to go out early to look for an ideal walking place. The owner was lovely, and having a hot tub was a bonus. I would highly recommend this place and don't worry if you have not got a dog there are no doggy smells in this cottage.

The accommodation was incredibly family friendly, comfortable, stylish and located in a wonderful area. It was quiet and peaceful with enough place for the kids to stay busy and entertained. The owner was a great host; she made us feel very welcome from the start and allowed the kids to feed her chickens and ducks each day. It really is one of the very best places of this kind that we have stayed at and we will certainly visit again. We would recommend it unreservedly.

An amazing property and the owner was absolutely wonderful in settling us in. Couldn't ask for a better place to stay in. It was perfect, will definitely return again.

The cottage and location was extremely dog friendly. We were made to feel very welcome and felt at home right away. It was clean and well presented and lots of things were provided to make sure our stay was busy and interesting. Our host was ever so nice.

The space was very well thought out and comfortable. We had our own part of the garden and also easy access to a paddock for early morning doggy walks which was great. It is easily accessible to a great nursery which is next to Athony Gormley's house with one of his sculptures on the font approach and we also had a lovely Day in Holkham.

It was nice and quite. The pictures do not do it justice and the facilities were excellent. The owner was very helpful.

What a wonderful week we had in the barn! Our 8 year old daughter loved feeding the ducks chickens and our Labrador loved the paddock/agility course! We also enjoyed using the hot tub, the time reservation chalk board is a really good idea and worked out great. The inside is finished to a high standard and decorated beautifully. The owner was so nice and they have truly thought of everything for a carefree, doggie friendly stay. We hope to return someday.

The host was attentive from our arrival to departure, nothing was too much trouble. The best PET FRIENDLY holiday we have ever taken! The Barn was a magnificent home from home if not better. The hot tub was very relaxing, whilst enjoying a glass of wine or two. Will recommend to all family and friends who have a dog or two.

The owners made us very welcome and were most helpful with local information. The property far exceeded our expectations, the kitchen was very well equipped to a high standard as was the rest of The Barn. The facilities for our dog were very good with an enclosed private garden and a safe enclosed paddock for her to run in. The Hot tub was spotlessly clean. We will book again.

It was really nice for myself and partner to get away for the week and spend some quality time together, the location was perfect and I couldn't fault it one bit and it was a great location to get engaged. The Barn at Saham Hills set a really nice scene.

The owners were delightful and welcoming. Our accommodation in The Barn was superb with the added bonus of a jacuzzi next door that was amazing. The whole property was of an extremely high standard and spotlessly clean. Our two dogs were made to feel very at home, we highly recommend The Barn.

We all enjoyed the size of the Barn, the hot-tub, surrounding area and the welcoming nature from the owner. She made us comfortable, at ease and ensured we were allowed to have a good breakaway without enforcing any strenuous rules upon us.

Stayed in this property with family over xmas, to be near my mother in Watton. Very comfortable accommodation indeed. Spacious open plan kitchen/dining/sitting area with lovely wood burner and three roomy sofas. Useful utility area and downstairs toilet. Two good sized bedrooms each with ensuite bathrooms, with beautiful slipper baths and showers. Fluffy towels and towelling robes provided. Wi fi included in the price. There is also a hot tub on site shared between the three cottages. This is booked by simply chalking your name on the blackboard outside. The Barn has an enclosed garden which was ideal for our labrador. Patio furniture provided and a BBQ for the warmer weather. The complex is exceptionally dog friendly with throw for sofa, treats and an enormous paddock for them to roam in, as well as a smaller gated grass area, ideal to throw a ball for them in.The owner is so friendly and helpful, even providing a beautifully decorated xmas tree and leaving a bottle of wine, which we enjoyed in the hot tub, looking at the twinkling xmas lights. Set in a quiet rural area, a very peaceful setting. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

We have just returned after spending a week with friends in this excellent cottage we have 4 dogs between us and it is the best dog freindly place we have visited. The owner Karen can not do enough to ensure you enjoy your holiday, within minutes of meeting her we knew it was going to be a relaxing place to stay. There was an assault course for the dogs which each dog loved and a hot tub for the adults which could be used at any time,you just wrote your name on a board for own private use none of us wanted to leave , we will defiantly be visiting again.

Our intention was to have a good holiday away for the New Year and we did. The converted Barn is gorgeous and as it had only recently been completed it was immaculate, very spacious and warm. The wood burner and hot tub were features we looked for when we booked the location and holiday and neither disappointed us. There was enough room in the Barn to have our own space, including plenty of space outside for the Belgium Shepard that also came with us. Each bedroom has its own bathroom with shower, we were supplied with robes for the short walk to the hot tub, plenty of logs for the burner and the owners although very welcoming and helpful left us to our holiday for the whole week and were pleasant every time we met. The area its self is picturesque as you make the short walk to the local village or pub, which also had welcoming owners. The only reason we wouldn't stay there again is because we have already and will be going to another county next time

Absolutely the most gorgeous, pet friendly cottage I have ever stayed in! Everything you could want for a lovely relaxing or hectic holiday. I travelled will my partner, my daughter and her friend (both 15) and our two labs. We arrived late because of traffic, my asda delivery already been delivered and Karen(the owner) unpacking it for us. We was made to feel so special, nothing was to much trouble! Beautiful grounds for the dogs including a small enclosed private garden with seating and gas bbq. The shared hot tub was great, you just chalked your name on the board when you required a relaxing hour and considering there is only two other cottages it was never busy. Lots of places to visit and walk......we did Go Ape which was great. The girls and my partner loved it, I thought it was quite good but had trouble finding a reason to jump out of perfectly good trees!! Banham Zoo is a must and we also did sealife centre and pleasure beach in Yarmouth which I paid for with Tesco Clubcard Vouchers. Within the week we had a couple of hic ups........the first morning I hit a deer, the car was a mess, insurance company crap but Karen and Stuart were amazing, nothing was too much trouble for them.......the last evening my daughters friend needed urgent medical attention......again nothing was too much trouble for Karen and Stuart! We will definately be going back as much to see Karen and Stuart as to see Norfolk! I cannot recommend Karen and Stuarts cottages highly enough or themselves as the most perfect owners to make you very welcome and do everything in their means to make sure you have a lovely stay!

The Barn was faultless, the owner was fantastic. We have been in many holiday cottages and this was the best we have stayed in over 10 years of holidays, 10 out of 10.
