  • A lovely place for a holiday with a toddler. Our 2.5 year old loved the toys and books, especially the outside toys. I appreciated the small touches, for example all the plugs were toddler proof. Also excellent information about local attractions and I especially appreciated the section highlighting activities that are suitable for pre-schoolers.Review dated 11/06/2022

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Barn Owl cottage. It had everything we needed as a young family of four and was much better equipped than anywhere we have stayed before. We liked the eco credentials and Jill and Felicity did everything they could to ensure we had a smooth stay and easy booking. We'd love to return.Review dated 02/11/2020

  • There was everything we could have wanted for both us an our children, and the cottages were lovely. We will definitely be back.Review dated 20/10/2020

  • Truly wonderful stay. Everything is so well thought through for the little ones. Our daughter (20 months) was elated with all of the toys (inside and out). The garden is perfect; enclosed, safe and big. When you stroll around the property, things like the tree swing and large trampoline are such a lovely additional touch too. Thank you North Farm!Review dated 17/09/2020

  • We really enjoyed our time at North Farm and our 19-month old son loved it. Everything about the stay was so well thought out with really nice touches like the welcome hamper and the range of toys. Great location for exploring Norfolk and we hope to be back.Review dated 13/09/2017

  • We had an absolutely fantastic stay at north farm cottages and cannot recommend it enough. The communication and contact from the owners from booking to leaving has been excellent. The cottage itself is beautiful and in such a lovely homely farm environment. Friendly welcome from the owners and a delicious welcome hamper started our holiday off so well. We stayed with a 2.5 year old and a 4 month old baby. Our 2.5 year old just loved all the toys - especially the garden toys. And he loved going to feed the chickens and seeing the tractor, and he's still asking to see the chickens 2 weeks later! We loved the peace and quiet!! The cottage is so well equipped it's everything we required and the owners were on hand to sort out any thing we needed. I was initially a bit concerned that the location may be a bit too rural but it was actually perfect, in a really peaceful area but perfectly situated to explore most of Norfolk within an hour. We are already talking about when we can go back! Review dated 29/06/2017

  • Lovely location; friendly on-site owners; great to have so many amenities and things for children as it saved having to bring so much stuff - also having things like tea, coffee, washing-up liquid supplied; lovely added extras like the welcome pack and being able to feed the chickens. Would definitely recommend.Review dated 25/03/2017

  • Such a lovely host. When we arrived the kitchen had some lovely extras in it including home-made cake. Our baby had a great selection of inside and outside toys to play with. The accommodation is beautiful and there was lots of reading material available to help us decide how to spend our time in Norfolk. Visiting Horsey beach and seeing at least a hundred seals sunbathing peacefully was a real treat.Review dated 10/04/2016

  • Lovely cottage on a working farm and totally set up for an easy holiday with a little one.Review dated 20/06/2015

  • Barn Owl cottage at North Farm was superbly organised and furnished for a young family's needs. Whilst very practical it had not lost the charm and character of a barn conversion. The owners were very welcoming and informative, and could not do enough to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. The location is perfect for enjoying the delights of north Norfolk such as Dinosaur Adventure, Cromer and the steam railways.Review dated 11/11/2014
