“Great house, great location”
Reviewed 8 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Just back from a week at Barn Drift with extended family. Wonderful house, fully equipped for all our needs. We cooked for 13 each night - the kitchen has more than enough pots, pans, knives etc for everyone to join in the preparation. Loads of space inside and out for us all to spread out and relax. Excellent weather allowed time to relax in the grounds and enjoy the views (in all directions) around the house.
North Norfolk coast is beautiful and local towns/villages well worth a visit.
Highly recommended.

“Wedding at Barn Drift”
Reviewed 28 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Barn drift had just received the licence as a wedding venue and proved a fantastic one for an intimate ceremony with close family and friends. The pictures do not do it justice and it was far more spacious and luxurious than we had imagined. The cottage has many original features and views over the surrounding countryside which provided stunning backdrops for the wedding ceremony and photographs. The cottage provided a great space for entertaining with every piece of kitchen equipment you could imagine, 2 fridge freezers, 2 dishwashers and sinks and a large patio and barbecue. There were over 30 champagne flutes, large serving dishes, plates and children's' plastic plates and cups for a celebration after the ceremony.

The bedrooms were also well appointed with large comfortable beds. Alice even arranged special bedding for one of our guests who had an allergy to feathers! There is plenty of space and a large games room for children to enjoy as well.

Absolutely fabulous cottage and location for any special event!
