The Dairy Barns Information


Based down a quiet country lane with views across farm land to the sea the Dairy Barns is a purpose designed red brick barn conversation locatated on our family farm with a selection of 6 lovely rooms and 3 extra special rooms with a stunning main breakfast barn and coastal themed lounge. Take a closer look…. Our 6 rooms, all on the ground floor – Dahlia, Norfolk Lavender, Red Poppy, Sunrise, Seaside and King fisher – each beautifully colour-themed. They are very comfortable, spacious, well-equipped, and all come with those important little finishing touches such as homemade cake and fresh milk on arrival, toiletries,delightful fresh flowers and of course television and well stocked hot drinks tray. They all en-suite with shower cubicle and luxury towels and have wonderfully comfy twin or super king size beds with crisp linen and cosy, pretty duvets. We often host large family groups and several of our rooms can also accommodate children. Take a look at our Extra Special Rooms for that extra hint of luxury and additional space – perfect for that special occasion or if you just want to treat yourselves! Each is completely self-contained with a lounge area with TV, comfy sofa and dining table, luxury bathroom with fluffy towels, robes and luxury toiletries provided and all have super king size bed and each has doors leading onto their own private courtyard garden. All have their own front door for complete privacy and are very special places to stay. All have a kettle so you can make a cup of tea or hot chocolate, Nespresso Machine and of course a fridge and glasses in case you want to enjoy a glass of wine or champagne. We can even bring you breakfast in bed. For guests with limited mobility or wheelchair users, Kingfisher is ideal, with wider doorways and a large wet room style en-suite with shower seat. However, if you have specific needs please don’t hesitate to contact us.

We love welcoming people to our farm and have been doing so for more than 18 years. Hannah and Ian along with their amazing team of staff pride themselves in offereing a warm and friendly welcome to all our guests. Along with clean and comfotable rooms we enjoy helping you make the most of your stay offering suggestions on places to visit and the best pubs and resturants to eat at. You are welcome to explore the paths on the farm where there is wildlife in abundance and simply enjoy getting away from the hussle and bustle of real life. We have horses on the farm all year and in the summer there are beef cattle and sometimes sheep on the meadows.
