This barn was perfect for our stay in Norfolk.. Mr and Mrs Stanley are a charming couple who were very helpful and made our stay there most comfortable. The view from the barn is stunning and we loved to watch the wildlife from our bed in the morning. Their beautiful horses are amazing. In all ,a perfect location, great hosts and a place we will certainly be returning to. Paul and Terri Candler.

This holiday exceeded our expectations by a long way.. From the moment we arrived Max and his wife went the extra mile making us welcome, explaining everything we needed to know about our stay. Max’s advice on local issues we found very helpful. Overall we cannot praise and thank them enough for a fantastic break Kind regards Dave and Frances Tobutt

Fantastic!! Beautifully presented with everything you could need . Wonderful welcome from Max and exactly the peaceful place we wanted. Easy access to travel out and about if you wanted to or just sit and while the time away watching the horses during the day and bats over the garden at dusk. We will definitely be back.

First the owner was very nosey.. the cooking facilities were very old and the oven did not heat up properly, he didn't want the dog to be in the garden when he had the horses out , once a week they have a clay pidgeon shooting from 6.30pm so says we should go to the pup for a few hours lucky for us it finished the week before but next door said when they went before they were not warned and it was terrible, one day when my husband went out and I was in with the dog he came knocking very hard on the door because he thought we had left the dog in on its own, he stated more than once to make sure we left it clean and tidy which I always do,does he want it spring cleaned for him when we arrived he made sure we read a list of rules not very welcoming. WOULD NOT GO AGAIN

The accommodation we stayed in had the wow factor.. It was clean and had everything we needed, and was tastefully decorated. There was also the novelty factor, us being townies, the barn was situated within the grounds of riding stables so we were able to watch their horses being put through their paces whilst having breakfast, how often do you see that? All in all a very enjoyable stay, and we would certainly go back and stay there again.

Tawny owl barn was a fantastic place to stay.. Well equipped & beautifully kept. We actually got to see an owl on one of the nights we stayed along with deer. The owners were very welcoming & friendly & nothing was to much trouble. We would highly recommend tawny owl cottage for a holiday. Thank you very much for a lovely week.

Tawny Owl studio is lovely.. If you want a very quiet and peaceful holiday this is ideal. The studio has everything you would need in a holiday let and is very comfortable.

It was very relaxing, and the owners were available if needed. This was our first holiday away with our dog and the owners gave us some good ideas of where to take the dog for long walks and dog friendly pub/restaurant in the area. It is high quality accommodation with lots of extras to make you feel very welcome.

The owners were very welcoming. The property is well looked after and decorated really nice. The location was perfect for peace and quiet and for travelling around Norfolk. We will definitely recommend the property and Sykes Cottages.

The cottage was cosy and very well equipped, it made the most of the space and the bathroom and shower were surprisingly generous in size too. The surroundings were stunning; at night seeing a blanket of stars and hearing just an owl in the distance is my perfect idea of getting back to basics. The owners were friendly, approachable and keen to offer tips and recommendations on the trip too.

Loved the quiet location on a stable with views over fields. There were horses to stroke and a great field to walk our doggie. Had friendly hosts and an owl to listen to at night from the tree outside the barn. Very comfy bed in a delightful bijou accommodation.

The fenced in garden was perfect for our dog and the owners had thought to put a Christmas tree up which was a lovely touch. They supplied tea, coffee, sugar and little extras like cooking oil, foil and kitchen roll. The studio was lovely, warm and cosy.

A beautiful spot surrounded by wildlife horses, a very peaceful setting. The owners were very friendly and kept a low profile but were there if you needed help or information. The Barns were excellent conversions, well fitted out and furnished.
