“Very nice accomodation”
Reviewed 17 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The Wheatsheaf Barn provides excellent space, accommodated nine of us no problem. Everything was in working order, the bedrooms are spacious and the living area is huge. Very well equipped kitchen. Good space outdoors on the patio too. One point to mention is that there were spider webs everywhere! I had to vacuum for 30 minutes to stop the children worrying about them! If a little more care went into the cleaning this would be 10/10. Very peaceful area, but everything within 10-15 minute drive. I would highly recommend this accomodation. We had swallows in the open wood store area, four chicks and the adults were constantly coming and going. Beautiful to watch.

Thank you for taking the trouble to give us a review: I'm pleased that the accommodation worked for you. Re the spiders, I'm sorry that you were disconcerted by the spiders but, given that we are just across the courtyard, it would have been good if you had brought it to our attention while you were here so that we could see the issue and deal with it for you. The blighters have been very prolific this year and can spin a web in a couple of hours, but nevertheless I would dispute that they were "everywhere"!!

“Just perfect!”
Reviewed 8 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

A perfect location for a Hen Party of 10! There was plenty of room throughout the day for all the activities we had planned (beauty treatments, dance class & a private chef for dinner), so a flexible venue all round! The owners Janet & Tony are very friendly & helpful with a tasty cake on arrival! The barn has everything you would need with lots of thoughtful details...books/DVDs/pool table/dolls house/jacuzzi bath & most importantly a wine fridge! A very impressive wow factor place to stay. I have plenty of ideas to find an excuse to stay in future! Thank you...it made the whole weekend memorable! Caz

Thanks so much, Caroline, for this lovely review. I'd be pleased if you message me privately, or link to the Barn Facebook page, with details of the people you used for the activities as ideas for future "hens"!!!

“Superb accommodation in a lovely setting”
Reviewed 11 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We spent a wonderful two days here with our family to celebrate our Ruby Wedding. The accommodation is first rate, plenty of space for everyone, and it is finished to the highest standard. The cake the owner very kindly left for us was delicious and she also took the trouble to unpack our online shopping which had been delivered before our arrival. Unfortunately we were unable to see much of the surrounding area because of the mist but we did manage a walk to the river. However, the house was so comfortable that it was a pleasure to be together there. We will treasure the memories of this special family time together.

“Great weekend property with friends!”
Reviewed 8 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed here with a group of 9 people and thoroughly enjoyed this particular barn. We found it on the internet and booking was very easy and reasonable. The owners themselves live just behind the barn so were nearby in case of any problems but were not intruding in any way. We loved the little touches around the house, such as the banana cake that was baked by the owner for our arrival.

The house itself was much bigger than anticipated and was lovely and open plan. Considering there was 9 people in the house, we never once felt claustrophobic. There was plenty of bathrooms for everyone, and it also had washing facilities for those who were spending longer there to clean their clothes. Towels were provided as well as certain cleaning bits to clean the house with. Any problems we had were dealt with very easily.

In terms of location, you would need a car to get about to bigger supermarkets. But there were some lovely walking routes for those who are keen walkers. A lovely, relaxing weekend spent here.

“10/10”
Reviewed 8 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

A great place to stay for groups, the barn is very well decorated and the owners are friendly and helpful. The barn had everything that we needed for the weekend and the area of Wrabness was picturesque with many places to explore. We would definitely recommend this place to others. Thank you to our hosts for a wonderful weekend!
