“Great Cottage- everything we needed- great base for exploring Norfolk”
Reviewed 21 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Hosts Linda and Melvyn were very welcoming and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, Aswad Barn had everything (and more) than we needed. A great place to come 'home' to after days exploring. Good base, good facilities close by, P&R, market, pub etc. Highly recommended. Thanks for the memories and goodies!

“Absolutely Fabulous”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I would highly recommend this wonderful cottage to anyone looking for a warm relaxing place to relax. Melvyn and Linda both welcomed us on our arrival and were so warm. The cottage has been converted to a very high standard with everything you need. We have 2 young kids so the property opens out onto a secure closed courtyard and also there is a wonderful play area for kids. We will definitely be going back to stay again this year.

“Modern, clean and lovely”
Reviewed 14 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The cottage is very clean and modern yet it has character. The owner, Linda, was very friendly and even left us some milk and eggs for the morning. We used our Satnav GPS which brought us to the wrong address (beware that Google Maps does not show the right location for this address and it's difficult to see at night!) The owner was kind and had offered us directions.

We definitely recommend this accommodation if you're staying in the area - it even can have more people than four if you're ok to sleep in the sofas. Just make sure you talk to Linda to get the directions right!

“An all rounder”
Reviewed 11 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We stayed here for new year, upon arriving at the house I instantly thought that this property was even better than advertised. It was well equipped, very clean and Linda was helpful and friendly.

The area was quiet but not too isolated. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this to anyone looking for a relaxing stay.
