Savour the perfect balance of proximity to the Norfolk Broads and the city when you stay at this single-storey barn at Surlingham. Sleeping four guests, the two-bedroom retreat could be ideal for a small family or two couples together. From here stroll less than 1 mile down to the River Yare or walk under 1 mile to explore tranquil Wheatfen Broad, home to plethora of wildlife. Drive 10 miles to Brundall to hire day boats out on the waterways of the area; pause at a pub for lunch before heading back. Plan day trips into Norwich, less than 8 miles away, to browse in colourful independent shops and high street stores, dine out and visit the famous cathedral and castle.

Open the door to this handsome barn and step inside to find a warm welcome. Discover the heart of the holiday home is the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, with its revealed brickwork, high vaulted ceiling and exposed beams, where the four of you can gather after your exciting excursions. Settle on the sofas to watch the Smart TV, pulling open the sliding doors on to a private courtyard garden on fine days. Wander over to the kitchen to whip up tasty meals with the local produce you have bought, where you have an electric oven and hobs and microwave. There is also a fridge, with a small freezer compartment, dishwasher and washer/dryer in here. Enjoy your meal together at the table. In the evening, run yourself a long, hot bubble bath in the freestanding bath in the family bathroom, with sumptuous roll-top bath also with WC and demisting LED mirror, or have a shower in the shower room, with shower, WC and demisting LED mirror. Lay your head in either the sumptuous king-size bedroom or the twin.

Great holiday get away, quite rural so would need transport, however only a 15 minute walk to a great pub on the broads. Property was clean and comfortable and great touches with welcome pack. More clothing storage in main bedroom and toiletry storage space in shower room required but overall a good property and would defiantly book again.

Green Farm Barns is a beautiful accommodation, perfectly clean and everything is up to date and kept in good condition. Lisa the owner is attentive and helpful, she greeted us with a lovely welcome and was able to help advise us of the area. Throughout the holiday she was contactable if needed (we ask for a fan and one was delivered) and see to ouRead morer needs. An absolutely amazing host. The welcome treats were a bonus, we had biscuits, chocolate, cakes, milk, butter, tea, coffee, sugar, hot chocolate and jam- totally unexpected but very much appreciated. Loved how the kitchen table was laid out so quaint and lovely, plus all the decor within is just to my taste. The barn is amazing, I am a very fussy person when it comes to feeling at home and relaxed on holiday, would normally clean cuterly, cups, glasses, plates etc and bathrooms for my own peace of mind- I didn't do any of this, as I could see how spotless everything was- even the cleaning cupboard, washing machine and dishwasher smelt clean- no nasty smells or grime anywhere. The village of Surlingham is lovely, so any walks and 4 pubs with amazing food within 10 mins walking. Our favourite two being Coldham Hall and the waters edge. Original cottages were amazing to book through, there was a technical problem securing the booking and unfortunately the money did not transfer across- it was no problem for the team, once I contacted them they resolved the problem instantly. Every advisor I spoke to on the phone (and I did contact them 3 times- so I spoke to 3 different people) were lovely, they made me feel very at ease and spoke to me like a friend not a (robotic) customer- they were all so helpful and kind and soon put any concerns at ease. I would definitely recommend Original Cottages to friends and family and I will be using them again as looking at all their cottages they are all of the same high standards what a fantastic company. Thank you to all of you for being part of our amazing week away on the Norfolk Broads. Hide
