Guestbook comments from the owner

Absolutely Superb. Wonderful quiet location and beautiful accommodation with very modern decor and up to the minute kitchen and bathrooms. Easy walks close by and plenty to do not too far away. We can’t wait for a return visit. June 2012.

A beautiful tranquil rural spot, with lovely walks and wildlife/birdspotting. Fabulous house, beautifully appointed and easy to stay in. Everything worked, was simple to use and was top quality. Stunning bedrooms and bathrooms which were really first class hotel standard. Really lovely owners on site with friendly dog/lovely kids (and the most delicious cake when we arrived!). Could not fault it. June 2012.

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at Curlew Barn; the setting was lovely, it was peaceful and quiet, and the welcome box provided including home made cake and fresh eggs was much appreciated by the weary travellers! Having use of the tennis court also kept the competitive ones in the party entertained. June 2012.

Luxury living in a tranquil setting - true 5*

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this wonderful holiday home and were very impressed with everything that was provided and by the quality and finish of the building. You will have all you need here with two large bedrooms each with their own en suite facilities and TV. From upstairs we had open views of the garden and even spotted two deer grazing under the nearby apple tree. The living space is open and airy with a contemporary feel and it is fully equipped for a comfortable stay. Claire and Robert, the owners, leave you to your own devices even though they live right next door, but couldn't be more helpful and pleasant when you need them. They've got the balance just right.

There's lots to visit up on the north Norfolk coastline, Sandringham is also worth a visit. King's Lynn, Boston and Spalding are within easy driving distance.

Would highly recommend for all ages as there are spacious grounds for children and the tennis court is right on hand. It's also a very quiet environment if you want to just relax and get away from it all.

Thanks for a great stay.

Very clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The barn conversion had been very tastefully done. It was perfect for the two of us, being in a quiet location with some walks in the area.

We needed some time to just relax, read and basically do just about nothing. Everything we needed to make our stay memorable was on hand. The fittings were of high standard. Spotlessly clean everywhere with comfortable beds.

Amazing Property!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my son and his family and we all thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. The house and property are absolutely beautiful! The Barn looks like a home straight out of an interior design magazine and no detail has been spared. Extremely comfortable and very warm on chilly days. It came well equipped with everything you could possibly need....and things you hadn't even thought of. A very efficient dishwasher and washing machine are included. We particularly enjoyed feeding the chickens every day and watching them from the kitchen window. They in turn supplied us with delicious eggs! Views from all the large windows are beautiful - plenty of birds and wildlife to see. Claire and Robert were very friendly and helpful - many thanks! Would love to return again in warmer weather. This has to be my favourite holiday let so far. Would happily give it 6 stars if it was possible! Loved it!

We arrived and were met by the owners who showed what was what. The cake that Claire had baked was still warm !!!! Lovely.

The barn is renovated to a very high standard and we were made to feel at home immediately. The log burner on a cold winter evening was a very nice feature.

Very comfortable a really nice place to Stay .... We will be back !!!!
