“beautiful house and setting”
Reviewed 4 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We have just returned from an amazing weekend to celebrate our marriage. The barn is set in the most beautiful area with stunning views of the sea and fields. The barn is well equipped and finished to such a high standard, and is perfect for a special occasion. The owner Alice could not do more to help and was so responsive - which made our stay relaxing. We do hope to return as all our guests had the most incredible time.

“Perfect venue for the wedding”
Reviewed 4 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The location was ideal, we were blessed with great weather and took adavantage of the lovely garden. The house is extremely well equipped and the owner was more than helpful in making everything go to plan responding to queries in the months beforehand and taking deliveries on the weekend itself.

How helpful were the directions to the property? How easy was key pickup/access to the property?
Overall condition of the property Bedding & mattresses

Liked best: Size and location of the barn and also its facilities
Liked least: One small thing...the bath in our room was slippery when showering and it would be advisable for a bath mat to be provided.

“The Perfect Wedding Reception at Barn Drift!!!”
Reviewed 4 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We hired Barn Drift for a week over August bank holiday weekend to host our wedding reception for 140 guests. The house and setting are both absolutely stunning and all of the guests agreed. The wedding suppliers all said they thought this was the most picturesque spot in Norfolk, so we feel very fortunate to have had it at Barn Drift. Alice was superb from start to finish, accommodating all of our requests to bring in outside suppliers(tipi marquee, glamping, toilet hire etc) and she was extremely responsive to all our emails and phone calls. Honestly couldn't speak more highly of this wonderful place and will certainly be staying again to relive the memories.

Perfect base to explore Norfolk and to have a great wedding!!!!!

“Exceeded our expectations”
Reviewed 12 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

A beautiful house with breathtaking views and the 'resident'. Marsh Harrier was an added bonus, he visited almost every day.
The house is incredibly well decorated and maintained and feels more like a home than a holiday house, the website doesn't do it justice. The attention to detail and thoughtfulness about every comfort really impressed us. Alice was incredibly helpful and I got the impression that she genuinely wants every guest to have a wonderful time, which we did.
As 13 adults and four under 4's we were a big group but there was ample space in the house and fabulous gardens for everyone.
We will definitely be back.
