A little gem

  • 5 of 5

This was a last minute booking and the barn was the only place available for the bank holiday weekend in the entire area. So we didn't really choose it, it chose us. And we are so glad it did! Warm, welcoming and nicely decorated it was absolutely lovely. We really appreciated the welcome pack of food and drinks and generous touches like a whole box of dishwasher tablets and nice hand soaps. We have family in the area and would not only return to the barn as a family but would love to try out the bigger barn next door or the manor house around the corner with friends. The only small gripe was the beds and mattresses in the twin room could have been better quality. definitely worth a small investment to bring it up to the standard of the rest of the property. But apart from that it was everything we wanted and needed.(And, as the other reviewer said, much better than it looks in the photos).

Amazing time had by all.

  • 4 of 5

The family needed some time away so we booked the barn for a long weekend. There was a lovely welcome pack and informaiton about stuff to do locally. It was clean, spacious and well equipped for our needs. We came away relaxed and happy. Would definitely book again.

The Village itself is surrounded by quiet lanes, ideal for walking, cycling and painting and is close to Redgrave and Lopham Fen. Blo Norton Hall is the perfect choice for a relaxed stay in the East Anglian Countryside.

Blo Norton is situated close to the picturesque Norfolk and Suffolk Borders making it ideal to explore all that both counties have to offer.

Blo Norton lies on the River Little Ouse which separates Suffolk from Norfolk.

The Hall reputedly provided the setting for Virginia Wolf’s short story The Journal of Miss Joan Martyn. In the story the main character, Rosamund Merridew, is a historian researching England's land-tenure system
