    Elizabeth-Anne – 15 Nov 2020
    "Barn Owl Lodge is a jewel. Our second time here, and definitely not our last. The location is unique - pretty, peaceful, and overlooking an ancient common that's busy with birdlife day and night. The Lodge is cosy and comfortable and the facilities are just right. And there are great walks right from the doorstep. We can't think of a better place to go for a real break!"

    "This is a delightful, peaceful, cosy lodge with gorgeous views across old fields and commons, nestled in a little-advertised but beautiful stretch of Norfolk countryside. Our hosts were friendly and generous, and the lodge itself was well-equipped and easy to settle into. The bed is particularly comfortable.Two very small points: we stayed for two weeks, which made having no washing machine and minimal clothes storage a bit tricky; and the sofa and hoover both smell a bit doggy to non-dog owners."
    Caroline – 14 Nov 2019
    "This pretentiously named property is in fact no more than a converted, roadside timber garage and lacks the space for even the most basic of requirements. It had a small wooden clothes rail which only had 3 hangers on it and no chest of draws, definitely not enough storage for more than a few days stay. There is also very little practical space in the kitchen area and nowhere to put a vanity case in the bathroom, which also had no door! We did not see any owls in the courtyard garden because it is too small and overgrown for any owl swooping! Booked 2 weeks, stayed 1 night, no refund! Owner was away when we arrived, no toilet roll, no bathroom toiletries, bread and cakes stale, dishes in dishwasher etc. Unfortunately it was a very disappointing property!"
    William – 2 Oct 2019
    "A clean and comfortable wooden lodge located in a quiet village. Ideally located for exploring the Broads and the Norfolk coast. Shops and decent pubs and restaurants can be found within a few minutes drive. The Lodge was clean and comfortable and I'd recommend it for a base for a stay in Norfolk."

    "Cottage nicely furnish and confortable, shame about the village pub"
    Roger – 20 Sep 2019
    "An excellent property in peaceful surroundings. Very clean and well appointed with a most comfortable bed and excellent shower. Simon and Jo, the owners provided a welcoming tray of home made bread, pastries, butter, marmalade and orange juice - a very nice touch! Wifi connection and TV reception good, but local amenities, notably a food shop(s), would have been a problem had we arrived without provisions for the local food store appeared to have closed down leaving just a fish and chip shop. However, as we had brought prepared meals for the four nights it was not an issue for us. Overall would definitely recommend!"
    Lisa – 5 Sep 2019
    "Excellent mid week break and nice little retreat. Very hospitable host who was very thoughtful and had nice touches like fresh crusty bread, cakes and Prosecco on arrival."

    "Big enough for 2 a little cramped with 2 dogs as well could do with less furniture"

    "We had a wonderful stay at The Barn Owl cottage. Very peaceful, and comfortable, and well equipped, with kitchen and bathroom supplies. Delicious package of food was there to welcome us on our arrival! Thank you once again Simon and Jo for sharing such a tranquil space."
    Simon – 3 May 2019
    "Just lovely although a sliding door for the en-suite would make a perfect addition. Our hosts were incredibly friendly and helpful, thank you ?"
    Carol – 21 Apr 2019
    "Barn owl lodge is small and quirky. Very clean and comfortable with a two seater settee, dining table for two, sumptuous king size bed with quality bedding, shower room with toilet and small kitchen included in lounge area. It has a small back garden with table and two chairs and a bbq. The garden is not fully fenced so dogs need to be watched. There is parking for one car. Heating is by radiators or log burner. We loved our weeks stay here and will definitely be going back next year. Simon is lovely and knows how to set up a holiday cottage. There was many little extra’s such as chocolate shortcake biscuits, fresh bread, butter, and other goodies waiting for us. There are also many toiletries etc in case you have forgotten something. Overall very high standards and quality thru out. There are many many walks around the village for dogs and the area is extremely quiet and peaceful. We would highly recommend barn owl lodge for a get away for two plus dogs."
    David – 2 Apr 2019
    "We were let down at the last minute and Simon was able to provide us with accommodation enabling us to attend my cousin's birthday celebration. The lodge is beautifully equipped and nothing has been forgotten. The welcome pack is exceptionally good. Walk books are provided and very useful, particularly the churches booklet. It is situated in a very quiet lane but still within walking distance of the local! Don't hesitate, go."

    "It was our 2nd time at Barn Owl lodge. We use it as a base to visit my daughter & it's perfect just 15mins from Norwich. Comfortable & cosy. Very peaceful & restful setting. Simon (The owner) is a lovely person & always willing to help. Constantly listening to his guests suggestions & acting on them to further improve your stay. Loved the new addition of the fencing. Perfect for us with a Fox Terrier with a chase instinct, we were able to leave the door open for her to come & go as she pleased with no worries.Wonderful. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, as always & will definitely be back later in the year & probably for many years to come."
    Stuart – 26 Feb 2019
    "Lovely boutique cottage in quiet location on the edge of the village. Arrived to a fridge containing fresh milk, bread, butter, tea and coffee and the very welcome bottle of Prosecco and slices of Millionaire Shortcake, yum yum. Good for dog walking as next to the village common but a small secure area for letting the dogs mooch about would have made it perfect for us. All in all a lovely cottage for a short break and we will definitely be back."
    "A lovely peaceful cosy cottage. Really comfortable bed and pillows. Overlooking fields with river running through. Egrets frequently visited field and owls flying past. It was great to be able to take our two cavalier dogs on holiday with us. Good dog walking area right next to the cottage, although when we visited at Christmas it was too muddy. There is a local pub a few minutes walk away but as it wasn't dog friendly we did not visit it. Had a lovely Sunday lunch in the next village, Brooke. Wonderful log burner for cosy nights in but we only lit this once as the central heating system kept us warm enough. Only negative for us was no mobile phone signal so couldn't phone family on Christmas day. Would recommend if you want to get away from it all."
    "Lovely cosy cottage. Beautifully done. Warm welcome with lovely treats. We will return."
