In the grounds of Mill Farm where the owners live (he's an ecologist, she's an organic food specialist), is a big beautiful barn that will make your heart soar. Views reach over farmland, paddock and Shetland ponies, while brick and flint walls and willow screens create privacy from next door: the big patio is a safe place for children. Enter a great open-plan living room with vaulted ceilings and a bright airy feel, and a central oak staircase that winds you to mezzanine and bedrooms upstairs (two are up, two are down). Fossil-stone slabs line the floor, the end wall is of exposed brick, sleek leather sofas are deliciously comfy and children will love the hanging chair. Delightful Emma welcomes you in, gives you a fabulous hamper (veg from the allotment, home-baked cake and more), logs for the wood-burner, and has a wonderful eye for colour and design. Bedrooms are spacious and calming, one with a balcony for sundowners; bathrooms are the bees' knees. You can walk to pub, fish shop, small store and beach, there are books, games, TV with surround sound, bikes to borrow and toddlers' seats!

"Thank you for a wonderful stay, the barn was very clean and spacious and we loved the welcoming cake you made for us. We would love to come and stay with you again and would definitely recommend you to everyone. Hope to see you again. Sue & Denise "

"We recently stayed at the barn with two young very mobile children. It's absolutely perfect. Wonderfully warm and enough space for ten of us to stay with our own space. The communal area is great. Everything is impeccable and you are made to feel very welcome. The farm is a working farm so great for the children. Easy walks nearby and lots of recommendations of things to do and places to eat. Have already been recommending the barn to friends. "

"Perfect sanctuary after hectic time with son's London wedding. Well equipped,cosy & comfy with bonus of homemade cheese scones, bread ( still warm!) & newlaid eggs from our welcoming hosts who even invited us to their bonfire party! Easy walk to good village pub with roaring fire. Great base from which to explore coastal Norfolk - we saw a day old pup at Horsey Seal Colony. The Haybarn was compact but so thoughtfully designed & spotless- we loved it! Thank you Emma and Neil - just what we needed!"

"We stayed in both barns with 10 adults and 3 toddlers and it was great! Really well equipped for the little ones and loads of space. The barns are finished to a really high standard so it feels comfortable and luxurious. The owners were very friendly and helpful with all our needs. The toddlers loved the ponys and chickens and the local area is lovely with lots to see and do."

"The Hay Barn was perfect for us and our small baby. The owners' website was full of helpful information which meant we had a great holiday of seal spotting, long walks and fantastic pub lunches. The accommodation had everything we needed and was very cosy even on a windy November weekend - and the homemade flapjacks were a lovely treat!"

"We were 3 generations with a toddler and tiny baby. This is a fantastic place to stay: spacious, so thoughtfully designed and furnished, with good quality furnishings and utensils. Emma provided baby equipment, including a pushchair and lots of good toys. We arrived to a fantastic trug of vegetables from the garden, eggs, home made jam, and a very special cake. Winterton is a lovely sandy beach. All perfect for a family holiday. Thank you to Emma and Neil"

"A fantastic weekend break for 8 friends. We had a fabulous walk to see the seals combined with good pub grub. The barn has great space for get togethers with a wonderful open plan kitchen dining area. The woodburner is a real treat as well as the delicious cake and jam waiting on arrival. Thanks to Emma & Nick for looking after us so well!"

"Mill Farm Eco Barn was light and airy, and spacious enough to easily accommodate six of us. It has recently been converted with a high standard of convenience and comfort, including a large and well-appointed kitchen. There were lots of local attractions to keep us all happy: wonderful beaches and walks, adventure parks and pubs, seals and watching the Shetland ponies being fed their dinner each evening. The personal touch of Neil and Emma, who gave helpful hints about the countryside, was an added bonus. We all had a grand time and hope to return soon!"
