“Fantastic self catering accommodation”
Reviewed 1 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We stayed at the Kestrel Barn from the 24/09 to 28/09 this year, the barn is excellently decorated, very modern but still showing the original barn's features such as beamed ceilings & cobbled/brick walls. Everywhere was absolutely spotless which is one of the main things I look for when choosing accommodation, I couldn't fault the cleanliness at all.
It's in a good location with the main sights only a short drive away & the local beach/amenities only a short walk. I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting self catering accommodation in North Norfolk & would definitely stay again myself.

“Great time at Rookery Barn”
Reviewed 26 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We stayed at Rookery Barn Holidays in the Kestrel Barn from august the 3th until august the 10th. The Kestrel barn is the best holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in. The accommodation is very spacious, luxurious and clean. From the beautiful bathroom, the great kitchen to the relaxing hot tub in the backyard, everything is just perfect. Rookery Barn is also convenient located. It is close to nice places like North Walsham en Cromer. Norwich and other attraction are also relatively close by. A special word of appreciation are for the owners of Rookery Barn. Ken and Nicola made us feel right at home, the minute we arrived. They were very helpful and nothing was too much for them. Wonderful people at a wonderful place. We can recommend it to everyone and for us it is a place to definite revisit again in the future.

“wonderful holiday accommodation”
Reviewed 20 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

One of the best holiday homes I have stayed at! It was spotless and absolutely everything had been thought of. The welcome hamper was generous and thoughtful. We stayed in Kestral which was spacious enough for our family of 4 and my in laws. The large bathroom was beautifully equipped. My children loved the board games and shelf of DVDs! The location is very good as there are lots of places to visit within a 30 min drive. We enjoyed seal watching at Horsey, Felbrigg House, Blicking Hall and Norwich itself. Ken and Nicola are very helpful and friendly. I nearly forgot to mention the fabulous hot tub! My 8 year old just loved this especially when her Grandad brought her out a glass of "champagne"! Overall we had a wonderful holiday and will be back!
