    “This is the second time we have stayed at Far Barn, previous visit was 3 years ago.”

    This is the main reason we decided to book again. It’s a beautiful place, very cosy & comfy, light & airy & has everything you need for a happy holiday. It was cleaner than last time, which was a bonus, as we did have a few issues with the cleanliness after Covid. Pleased to see that they have sorted that problem out. It’s a lovely part of the country to visit, plenty to do & the dogs love the barn & the garden. The neighbours are very friendly & helpful, one of them even gave us some duck ...

    This is the main reason we decided to book again. It’s a beautiful place, very cosy & comfy, light & airy & has everything you need for a happy holiday. It was cleaner than last time, which was a bonus, as we did have a few issues with the cleanliness after Covid. Pleased to see that they have sorted that problem out. It’s a lovely part of the country to visit, plenty to do & the dogs love the barn & the garden. The neighbours are very friendly & helpful, one of them even gave us some duck food, as none had been left this time. We all adore feeding the ducks, that’s one of the attractions for us, they even eat out of your hand, it’s really fun & the dogs love watching their hilarious antics. The beds are very comfy, the weather was a bit cold so we had to put the heating on, but it soon warmed up. Our daughter & her husband stayed for the weekend as well & were taken up in the magic of this converted barn. We usually rent a detached property so we don't have any noise from the neighbours, this is attached at one side to a very lovely couple & because the wall between the property is so thick, you don’t hear a thing. Would recommend this to anyone & everyone, if you want a holiday home that’s safe for the children & as in our case the dogs, then this is the place for you, you’ll love it. Very happy customer, Thank you. We will be back!!

About the location

FAKENHAM

Norwich 25 miles; Holt 13 miles.

The historic market town of Fakenham is famous for its horse racing and offers a wide selection of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. Situated on the River Wensum, half way between Norwich and Kings Lynn it is an excellent, central location for exploring Norfolk. The town holds a popular Thursday market which takes over most of the town centre with local traders and those from further afield selling a wide selection of goods. The town also plays host to a Farmers’ Market, monthly on the fourth Saturday of every month, ideal for stocking up on fresh local produce. Fakenham is a very attractive market town with pretty brick and flint-faced buildings, narrow alleyways and side streets to explore. Often referred to as the Gateway to Norfolk this town really does offer a perfect base for exploring this beautiful county. You are only a twenty minute drive from the coastal towns of Wells-next-the-Sea, Holkham and Burham Overy where you will find miles of pine forests, sandy beaches, salt marshes, tidal creeks and great opportunities for birdwatching. There are some lovely areas of unspoilt countryside and villages and the Holkham Estate has a number of attractions and a fabulous deer park. With so many activities on offer, this area is a fantastic choice at any time of year.
