The property was ideal for our group in terms of size and facilities, and we enjoyed a great holiday in norfolk, spending all but 1 day on sea palling beach. I have scored slightly lower for comfort and cleanliness as a couple of the beds weren't comfortable and need some attention, as does one of the settees. The accommodation was clean enough, but it doesn't look like the cooker has been cleaned for some time. Rob from Stourbridge (04 August 2017)
Beautiful cottage, this is the 2nd time we have stayed. We would definitely stay again. The only problem is the cleanliness, it has been dirty on both stays Catherine from Cambridge (14 February 2017)
Fantastic location and an amazing property full of potential. Beautiful views and lots of things to do close by. improvements are still needed with the property the bedrooms were clean but the bathroom and main living area was not. The plates and cups in the cupboards still had food stains on them. Comfortable for a big family but just needs some love putting back into it. Sam from Lincolnshire (16 January 2017)
Lovely property. Lots of space for a large family. All showers, kitchen equipment etc in good working order. The main things were clean (bathrooms, kitchen, floors etc) but walls etc could have done with a good clean. Overall though, a great property from which to explore north norfolk. Jo from Reading (26 August 2016)
A bright modern house with its own grassed garden, a spacious lounge-diner, good sized kitchen and reasonably sized bedrooms, though no room for hanging clothes in two twin rooms, and hanging space shared with cleaning equipment etc in two double rooms. Mattresses are due for renewal but plenty of bedding. Excellent toilet/shower provision with 2 en-suites and 2 bathrooms, but strangely no shelves for toiletries. lounge seating is four sofas, some of which are past their best, set up in two separate areas - not a very flexible arrangement. good wifi and flat screen tv. Kitchen lacks sufficient equipment for cooking in the oven, but has plenty of cupboards for storage. Surprisingly for a holiday cottage less than 10 miles from the coast, there was just one small folding clothes-airer and no other provision for up to 10 people to hang wet towels, swimming gear - or raincoats! directions given assumed approach from norwich and despite good map-reading skills it was hard to find - even local villagers couldn't tell us where it was! we initially had a problem with the lighting and a call to the owner got a prompt and successful reply, very pleased to say. currently good, but with a bit of tlc it could be excellent. Judith from Congleton (19 August 2016)
A great place. But the storage for clothing very poor, no hanging space. Limited, or no storage at all in some of the bedrooms. Kitchen equipment was unbelievable, it had everything you would ever need on a self catering holiday. The beds were the most uncomfortable beds, I have ever tried to sleep in. The mattresses were like sleeping on bricks, even the younger persons in our party complained. Such a shame, as we loved the place. A bit more effort in improving this the place would be fantastic. A tv in the main bedroom would be great. The bbq on site was not clean and we was not able to use it. Ian from Cobham Surrey (12 August 2016)
Cooks barn is set in beautiful countryside. We had some lovely walks all around. It is very spacious and for 9 of us was perfect. . the downside to the bedrooms especially the twin room in the left wing as you walk through the door is there isn't any drawers for clothes! . the large bedroom on the right wing has plenty of storage and is lovely now a window has been fitted. . in the lounge area the tv was missing as there were two last year and there wasn't a play station 3 as advertised. Our children were disappointed with this! . also the table in the kitchen area was missing as advertised in your description it was there last year and this proved difficult to prepare food for 9 people. . I had to clean all the showers as they were dirty and the main bedroom in the right wing hadn't been cleaned at all. This was a bit annoying as cleaners do go in. . I think a few things need sorting out like the tv, table and the cleaning. On a whole it's a lovely place to have a break. There's plenty to do in cromer, mundsley and we visited holt and wroxham. Rebecca from Sheffield (22 July 2016)
Fantastic space and had a very nice feel about the place, well though out, plenty of room for family of 8 to be together under roof.location easy to get to coast or broads or local towns.a lovely break away would recommend :-) Jon from Royston (13 March 2016)
We had a lovely stay at cooks farm barn, very peaceful location. The only down side was the amount of crockery and glasses for 10 people, it was a little lacking. great value for money and would not hesitate to return. Lindsay from Nottingham (19 February 2016)
The cottage was very spacious with plenty of space but it lacked basic equipment such as crockery etc. Icy from Wakefield (15 February 2016)
We had a lovely stay at the barn, it was well equipped and comfortable. The only things I would raise are that the largest double bedroom was significantly colder than the other bedrooms. Also, perhaps there could be a sign just outside on the road by the car park as we were later than planned arriving and we found it a little difficult to find the barn initially in the dark. Anna from London (23 November 2015)
A fantastic location for big family break away. Needs a good clean and quilts/pillows need replacing, more 'serving up' dishes and oven shelves needed to prep meals for large groups, but the house itself and the surroundings are stunning. We all want to come back- very peaceful break away. Lene from Colchester (30 October 2015)
We had a great family break and the cottage was perfect for our family gathering to celebrate our dads birthday. There was plenty of room inside for us all and the cottage is to a lovely standard and in a great location. The night sky is amazing too being in the middle of nowhere. The place could do with more plates etc. And also more cooking equipment like baking trays and dishes. There were also only 2 car park spaces which was difficult with 10 of us with 5 cars. But overall we had a great weekend and would definitely recommend it. Louisa from Nottinghamshire (12 October 2015)
A lovely building that sadly lacked in basic maintenance, cleanliness and working equipment! Confirmed Guest (14 September 2015)
Nice space for socialising as has a large living area. Good location as close to the coast and cromer. However, property was let down by uncleanliness - the kitchen was filthy when we arrived and we had to give to a very good clean ourselves plus all the plates and crockery in the drawers and cupboards were dirty. The floor was dirty throughout and needed a good hoover as there were dog hairs everywhere. Bathrooms were slightly better but not as clean as you would expect. Other than that this was a nice property, it's just the cleanliness that let it down. Emma from Kent (31 August 2015)
Although this barn conversion was to a good specification the accommodation was totally inadequate for our party of nine adults. Four of the bedrooms lacked adequate, or no, clothes storage facilities and little other furniture. The kitchen was fitted to a good standard but several of the appliances were dirty. All the bathrooms / showers were in need of a deep clean. We were all very disappointed. Ken from Benfleet (21 August 2015)
Plenty of space for 10; 5 bedrooms (although one double very cramped) and plenty of wc's and showers etc., but let down by lack of basic equipment (e.g plates, glasses etc) and cooking equipment. it would cost a very small amount (in comparison to rental income for a week) to rectify all of this with a visit to argos or ikea - we were not expecting best bone china! . also very disappointing that, a couple of months after booking, we had an email informing us that two of the bedrooms had no windows - when it is quite clear that has been the case ever since the property was available as a holiday let. to make matters worse in one of the windowless rooms there is a bare 'filled-in' brickwork opening (partly covered by a mirror unsafely propped up against the wall) which must have been there since conversion from the original barns - but no note of apology or explanation. . the main dining area also has no window and the rear 'patio door' did not secure properly, to such an extent that, in a fairly high wind, we had to push a table against the door to keep it closed. All this just takes the edge off a potentially beautiful property which suited our needs precisely and acted as a good base for exploration of the whole north-east corner of norfolk. Brian from Norwich (31 July 2015)
Lovely spacious accommodation which suited our group perfectly. Joanne from Brentwood (20 March 2015)
Very nice, only two bug bears were the heating, which you could not adjust and was 26 degrees at night in the kids room and the lack of wifi (although granted this was maybe an oversight of mine) as there is limited phone signal on multiple networks. Dave from Sheffield (02 January 2015)
Excellent converted barn.could do with some upgrades to cooking equipment. No wifi, or mobile phone reception here.could do with wifi installation.would certainly stay here again. Peter from Leicestershire (24 October 2014)
Disappointed by lack of equipment eg. Towel rails,loo roll holders and place to dry towels and wet clothing,also number of chipped plates,bowls and mugs which could have been replaced easily. Some more dishes for cooking in the oven and microwave would have been a help Patricia from Scarborough (03 October 2014)
