The Barn is delightful and so comfortable and well equipped, I could have just moved in! Lovely gardens, warm welcome, especially from Jake the dog. Enjoyed exploring the local area. Truly could not find any fault and had a fantasic, relaxing week.

Tucked behind the owner's house on the main road through Long Sutton. A modern conversion with all mod cons, comfortably furnished and with a downstairs toilet. It was warm and cosy on chilly winter days. Long Sutton is a large village with an interesting church and a good array of shops. The Ship pub is just a few minutes walk away, and is a friendly pub serving generous portions of tasty food.

Just returned from a week at the barn. All I can say is it is a shame we couldn't stay longer here. Loved the place ! Great location, plenty to do, see and visit. The barn was very well equipped for 4 adults. Nice and cosy, every little detail thought of. Big soft comfortable beds, fluffy towels and lots of for the week so not disturbed by the owners/neighbours. Although saying that it was nice to know if you needed anything they were close at hand. They did greet us on the first day but just to check that everything was ok etc. Large enclosed outside space, dog friendly etc. Nice touch with milk, tea, cake etc. I really was so impressed with how so equipped it was, everything and I mean everything was there as if it was you own home. From tea towels to cloths ..pegs and washing line, Hoover (if you wanted) washing machine/dryer, washing up liquid, cooking oil, salt /pepper, large tv with a good choice of dvds, radio and over a weeks supply of toilet paper !! Nice welcome pack from the owners pointing out places to visit, trips etc. Including good local pubs and restaurants in the area. We can't recommend this place enough hence while we shall visit again, spotlessly clean and just superb. Thank you Mandy and Gary.

This is very comfortable accommodation & I would certainly recommend it.. The beds were especially comfortable. I'd stay there again if in the area.

What a lovely 'Gem' of a place this is.. Owners made us feel very welcome and were not round ever five minutes, this made it feel like home from home. The Barn is very well equipped and if you think you have forgotten something, it will probably be there. With knowing the area very well as we use to life in the next village (Sutton Bridge), this was the perfect base for us to catch up with family and friends. The Barn is split over two floors, with nice medium sized kitchen-diner, lounge and handy toilet on the ground floor. Two bedrooms and bathroom upstairs. Off road parking and use of the garden is another bonus with good outside lighting. Free Wi-Fi and fast internet connection would be great for any modern family staying here. Not far away from a shop with free cash machine and Long Sutton village centre, all within easy walking distance. There is lovely public house about 100 yards away. One thing that is for sure, is that we will be staying here again.

The most well equipped cottage we have visited.. Warm and cosy. The owners were welcoming and friendly. Even putting up a Christmas Tree for us and some lovely goodies, so we could really enjoy Christmas.
Mr Lloyd
November 2018
We were unable to stay the full week unfortunately.. The cottage is as described which is a lot more than can be said for some places we have stayed. The owners are just next door but don,t bother you. We have two large dogs and the cottage has hard floors so that worked well. There is a stair gate to prevent dogs going upstairs. Its very handy for the town. We would be happy to stay there again.
Mrs Clark

The proprietors were very friendly and helpful in every respect and the barn was perfectly located for our stay and well stocked with information about the locality.. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the local area for our family history research and can certainly recommend this property as an excellent choice.
Mrs Forsyth

The barn was lovely.. The bed was comfortable. The garden was great. In fact everything was just perfect. Gary and Mandy certainly know a thing or too about making you welcome. Cake, milk, tea and coffee and chews for the dogs! A wonderful place to stay!

One of the best cottages we have stayed at every thing you could wish for.. Comfortable great kitchen well equipped good quality equipment.Very friendly owners
July 2018
Two of us stayed here for a week in this lovely conversion. It was clean and well equipped. The garden does now seem to be enclosed and we enjoyed sitting in it. As we are early risers we didn't even notice the road noise that others have commented on. The welcome pack of bread rolls, tea loaf, jam and milk was a lovely and useful surprise. The shower was good and powerful though we had trouble with the soap dish which was part of the pole fitting as it seemed to be fitted in the wrong place, didn't hold the soap and kept hitting us in the face! We would have liked a couple of blankets for the night as it was a little cooler than we are used to. A small table to use with the garden chairs was needed to hold the beer - can't risk it spilling in the grass! The local pub just metres away was everything we needed and the menu was just right for us. Their Fruits de Mer was a joy. The local antiques shop was worth a visit and we bought a few inexpensive items there. The steam train from Holt to Sheringham was soothing and nostalgic.
July 2018
Friendly hostess made us feel welcome.. Cottage was just as described with all facilities you would want for a holiday in that area. Good size secure garden, made available for the private use of guests. Hunstanton a good day out!
Mrs Costello
June 2018
This is a beautiful and comfortable place to stay, very well equipped, and the friendly owners are on hand if you need them, without being obtrusive.. If you don't mind travelling to go sightseeing it's ideal, but if you want a beach holiday it's possibly a bit far from the coast
Mrs Donovan
June 2018
Comfortable vacation home.. Excellent facilities. Lovely garden. We normally go to Norfolk and decided to try the other side of the Wash. Loved Frampton Marsh and Gibraltar Point. Enjoyed the Ark and Lincolnshire Wildlife Park. The barn was conveniently situated near enough these but also made the Norfolk bird reserves accessible. Note: directions = if you are coming from the north, the McDonald's roundabout is the third roundabout showing Long Sutton on the A17.

Just what we expected
Mrs Maden
March 2018
I have stayed in many holiday cottages and there is almost always something 'missing' that I find I need but The Barn was really well equipped, warm and ideal for a break.. I chose this property because I wanted to visit friends who live in the area while retaining some independence. it was ideal for this and I would certainly book it again to visit the area - which is a great place to visit with many places of interest in easy travelling distance.

Excellent location.. Great accommodation. Could do with a dishwasher but that's a minor point.

August 2016
A delightful cottage that photos don't do justice to. Extremely well equipped and immaculately clean and tidy. We have had a fabulous fortnight in this beautiful barn with two teenagers and two dogs and we have loved every minute of it. Would definitely come again and would definitely recommend to others. Loved the unexpected milk, tea, coffee, muffins and biscuits. Very welcome after a long journey. Really well placed for Fakenham, Kings Lynn, Hunstanton, Brancaster, Ely, the Lavender Centre, dog friendly beaches, and so much more. The village is beautiful, the chippy is excellent value and fresh, fresh, cod. The pub opposite serves a delicious steak too! Felt relaxed from the day we arrived, despite a couple of hiccups - on those, the local vets were outstanding, as was the formula one garage in Kings Lynn.
Mr Holloway

The Barn certainly felt like a home from home and our hosts were most friendly and helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed our time there and would enjoy staying again in the future.
Mr Newton

One of the best equipped cottages we have stayed in. It was warm and clean with plenty of parking space. In a good position for exploring Lincs/Norfolk/Suffolk. It was easy to get to and close to amenities.
Mrs Osborn

We loved everything about this holiday and would definitely return to The Barn and would even stay for a longer period. We cannot fault anything about the holiday or accommodation.
Miss Caldwell

The Barn was cosy and relaxing. Owners was friendly and welcoming It is in a good location for tourist attractions, particularly around Norfolk.
September 2014
The barn is very clean and tidy. We travelled with my parents, our 16 month old daughter & our dog. Slight niggles, not negatives, just points to be aware before you book:- 1. There is no enclosed garden for the dog, there is a very nice grassed garden with trees , a patio type area with seating and a gravel area for parking but not an enclosed area to just let your dog free, we had to take ours out on his lead as there is a busy road. 2. The road is quite noisey in the main bedroom 3. The whole building creaks, this was only a problem when our baby was trying to sleep 4. There are a lot of spiders, it must be noted that this will be due to the area and the trees etc 5. The toilet seats do not stay up this was a problem for both male and female alike. 6. The owners home is very very close, you have to walk passed there windows to get in and out of the barn. These points are just minor niggles. The building was also painted while we where staying which seemed a little odd that the owners would choose a time when guests where in to have the building painted. On the upside 1. It was very good value for money 2. The big bedroom bed is very comfy 3. The 'welcome' tray of tea and milk is a very nice helpful touch 4. The barn is tastefully decorated 5. Everything you could need is provided, towels, fridge, freezer, iron, fan, alarm clock, hairdryer etc etc 6. A very nice pub is about half a minute walk away for food and drinks 7. Local shops are not far away and can be easily walked 8. Ample parking All in all the barn is very nice, very warm, tidy, clean and inviting. We would recommend a stay to our friends

We enjoyed our stay as the Barn was attractively decorated and very well equipped..Huge, comfortable, king sized bed, big kitchen, big new TV. Handy downstairs extra loo and sink. The noisy road didn't bother us in the main bedroom but may have in the smaller room if you had four staying. Nice, helpful owners. Good food at pub a few houses up.

Clean, and functional. Unfortunately it is situated on a busy and noisy road, the traffic starts up very early in the morning. The garden only becomes enclosed if the main drive gate is closed and to be honest it was an inconvenience. The garden whilst not overlooked is a bit untidy.
April 2014
Owners very friendly and there if you needed them.The Barn was excellent very clean,and everything you would need a real home from home. The Barn is in a great Location with Local shops and pub.And Not far from Spalding,Kings Lynn. Only negative comment i have was no wifi. But that's just my personal opinion.But if you want a great relaxing holiday then the Barn is the place to go.

Mrs Hudson
June 2013
The holiday was like a home-from-home. Everything that you could want was there. A good base for exploring. The Ship Inn is very close and the food is great, portion sizes are large. The Granary bar and restaurant in the centre of Long Sutton does a great Carvery. All in all this was a great holiday made even better by the English weather behaving itself.
Mrs Marsden

June 2010
'The Barn' was the nicest place we stayed at over our 6 week trip. The accommodation was warm, cosy, quiet and overall very well fitted out. The owners were very pleasant and helpful. We had chosen this area as we were tracing our genealogy and it was close proximity to the areas that we wanted to visit.
Mrs Uldall

The Barn was delightful, very cosy, with everything we needed. The owners were helpful but discreet. The village of Long Sutton was a proper traditional village, with friendly people. The antiques centre was a nice surprise. We would certainly come again.
Ms Burrington

We were very happy with the accommodation. Given that we came over from Australia, we weren't quite sure what to expect. Owners were very friendly. We loved the fact it was outside of a busy town. Shops etc. were within walking distance.
Mrs Atkinson

Last minute short break - excellent value. The garden is great for dogs as enclosed. Good for children too. Spacious and warm, despite the snow! Loved it, thank you.
December 2009
A nicely renovated property with a welcome from the owner on arrival. There were pubs nearby for drinks and meals. A windy walk along the wash was only a few minutes drive away and nearby Wisbech is an interesting old town. We had an agreeable week break there. Recommended.
December 2009
The Old Bakery has been very nicely and sympathetically restored. Lovely kitchen/diner and cosy lounge. We had a problem with one of the heaters not working properly but the owner very quickly sorted this out for us. Good base for seeing many towns within easy reach.
