This barn conversion cottage is near the village of Necton close to Swaffham in Norfolk and can sleep four people in two bedrooms.

The Haybarn is a cottage which as its name suggests, has been converted from a hay barn and is located in the hamlet of West End, near to the village of Necton, just five miles from the market town of Swaffham in Norfolk. With one double bedroom, one twin and a family shower room, this cottage is ideal for four people. The rest of the open plan accommodation comprises a fitted kitchen, a dining area and a sitting room with an electric fire. To the outside of the cottage is a garden with outdoor furniture, an unfenced stream and large pond and shared use of the other garden areas, as well as off road parking for two cars. Set in a beautiful part of the Norfolk countryside and with the whole of East Anglia to discover, The Haybarn is a fabulous holiday cottage all year round.


Great little cluster of holiday accommodation.
Lovely home from home in very quiet spot. Very well equipped cottage. Beds super comfy and hot water all of the time. You definitely need your own car here and it was a great base for exploring Norfolk. Nowhere was more than a 45 minute drive. Our only criticism is that upstairs is let out separately and this time was let to some scaffolders who got up at 4.30 every morning to go to work and the noise they made woke us all including the dog.

Beautifully decorated modern well equipped dog friendly rural retreat
Clearly the owners have put a lot of thought into the decor and facilities here. Even coordinating towels! Real attention to detail and spotlessly clean which made it very homely and welcoming. The kitchen is the best equipped I have ever experienced, with lots of workspace, utensils and fully integrated appliances including washing machine. Nice comfy sofas too! Great shower! Tony and his wife are lovely people, we felt completely welcome and at ease. They are there if you need them but leave you to enjoy your holiday. Very relaxed The property is on the owners grounds with shared parking and small private garden with use of their own shared garden should you want more open space. There is a small stream separating the two. Well kept grounds. Be mindful that the top floor of the property is rented out - not obvious from picture/description. There was someone staying whilst we were there but didn't cause any noise issues for us at all. The property is rural and you will need a car to go anywhere. It's narrow country lanes too so don't expect shops, pubs etc in walking distance. This was fine for us as we are out in the day and prefer cosy nights in. The owners have lovely dogs themselves and are really chilled with dogs. Genuinely dog 'friendly'. Just need to keep on lead in grounds as chickens and horses around. All in all a lovely stay.

So relaxing. The Haybarn was so well equipped that we didn't have to worry about anything. Very dog friendly.We were made to feel very welcome on arrival but then left alone to get on and enjoy our break away. Highly recommended.
