Amazing base

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the barns from 9_13 August 2017 and we were amazed at how clean and modern they were. Everything you need is included at this place and the outside space is fantastic for children to go off and play in a safe environment.

The location is ideal for exploring with beaches and places of interest just a short drive away.There are plenty of places to eat and drink nearby and the ones we visited were all child friendly.

Overall WE couldn't fault this place and we will definitely revisit.

Very comfortable and modern accomodation

Loved our recent stay. Ample space considering we have 2 children as well. Everything was very clean and well equipped with a few added extras on arrival. It couldn’t have been nicer.

We will definitely be back soon.

Welcoming, clean, everything you need, great outside space.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at The Paddocks. My two boys loved the gardens which included a Summer House, trampoline, trees, a swing and lots of space to run around. The inside space was clean and comfortable with good facilities. A great location to explore the lovely nearby beaches. We will definitely be back!

Car: recommended

The Paddocks Holiday Barns are situated in a quiet rural location close to the market town of North Walsham,within easy reach of all that the beautiful area of North Norfolk has to offer. Close to quiet beaches, as well as the popular coastal towns of Cromer and Sheringham.

The Norfolk Broads are close by, and a short drive away is the historic city of Norwich.

For outdoor lovers there is plenty to see and do in the local area, with walks, cycle rides and golf courses within easy reach.

The town of North Walsham and it's surroundings has a good selection of pubs, restaurants and supermarkets, as well as a leisure centre with a swimming pool and gym.
