The Hayloft description

Holiday home
The property has been carefully renovated and boasts original beams and a warming wood burner that sits on the original doorstep of the former farmhouse. There are stunning views from skylights that perfectly frame the surrounding natural landscape. The lovely garden with summerhouse leads to 2 acres of land populated by wandering ducks and chickens, and features its own delightful babbling brook. The accommodation includes one double en-suite bedroom; fitted kitchen, and sitting room with a warm and welcoming wood burner. The Hayloft offers comfortable and well-equipped accommodation that provides an excellent base from which to explore this wonderful part of Norfolk.

An impressive Norman church with a wonderful Jacobean pulpit dominates the village of Necton, between the bustling market towns of Swaffham and Dereham at the heart of Norfolk. Necton offers a village store with a butcher's and post office, and the pretty market town of Dereham is just six miles away with its wider variety of shops, pubs and restaurants. A local farmers' market is also held there every fortnight that showcases the fabulous local produce. Visitor attractions nearby include Bradenham Hall, a splendid Georgian house with over 27 acres of beautiful gardens, that is rumoured to have been visited by Lord Nelson; the infamous Peddars Way; the Norfolk Coastal Path, and over 90 peaceful miles of beautiful Norfolk countryside for walking, cycling and horse riding.

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.

Very comfortable and cosy accommodation to return to each day. Lovely setting on farm of horses, chickens, rabbits and 'laughing ducks'. Stream running in front of Hayloft and Haybarn accommodation. Each apartment has it's own private garden. We had the summer house and decking with tables and chairs facing well kept lawn, bridge over stream and willow tree. Tranquil and peaceful stay. Easy access to Norwich and Wroxham where we had a trip on the broads. Norwich is a lovely city, you need plenty of time to explore, so much to see. A maze of cobbled streets and interesting shops plus castle and museum. Visited old friends in Swaffam and family in Holbeach. Enjoyed every minute of our week. Very friendly welcome from the owner of the property.

The absolute peace and relaxation of the location of the property. We take our dog and there is access granted by the local farmers to the many fields straight from the door. The countryside is beautiful and it's in a great situation to explore that part of Norfolk. The owners are very friendly too. Altogether, fantastic place!

Mrs Crook

The hosts were very friendly and helpful without being intrusive. I enjoyed the company of the chickens and geese and especially visits from the family cat. The situation of the cottage was rural enough to feel that you were completely away from everything but only a few miles away from either town, city or coast.

A truly fantastic place to stay, a very warm welcome from Tony when we arrived. Milk in the fridge for a cuppa tea, and even biscuits. The Hayloft is in the perfect location for touring Norfolk, and in a very quiet location. The kitchen had all the pots, pans, dishes etc that you will ever need. We will go back sometime in the summer and enjoy the patio that overlooked the brook. All in all a beautifully maintained Hayloft and surroundings. Even though we got our check out day wrong, Tony and his wife were extremely nice about it,. We will be back.

Loved this holiday rental. Lovely accommodation, all you need for a base to come back to after a day exploring. Owners very friendly and helpful. Situated on a farm with horses, hens and 'laughing ducks'. Your own private space outside. Ours was a decked area by the stream that runs through the property with a small summerhouse. Table and chairs for 2 to have a glass of wine in the sun. Nearest pub and shop a car ride away, approx 2 miles. We used the Windmill to eat on a couple of occasions. Norwich not far away, lovely place to visit. A trip on the broads is a must. I would use this rental again and recommend it to others.
August 2014
Peace tranquility you will find this all here we watch the hens and cockerels. We named him bruiser but he got a better name from cherri Middleton forest gump He runs like crazy. Lol Fresh eggs every day farm opposite selling produce Owners delightful The windmill worth a visit great food
July 2013
this cottage was very quiet and peaceful. the owners very helpful ,nothing was to much trouble very central to visit sights in Norfolk be warned a noisy cockrel as you were on a small farm
September 2012
Though a little off the beaten track, the location is actually very convenient for touring by car. The accommodation is well-appointed, comfortable and provides a relaxing, rural atmosphere in the evenings. The owners are on hand and very helpful. The only real drawback is the provision of a breakfast bar with high stools instead of a kitchen table and chairs (no room for the latter). We recommend the accommodation highly and would re-book if on holiday in the area again.
November 2010
Friendly greeting. Very quiet and pretty surroundings.Well equiped but the bed was a little hard. We also think that the kitchen stools would have been better with backs and padded seats to them. Loved the eggs. Good base for touring.
