“Ik heb deze accommodatie geboekt voor mijn dochter voor de kerstperiode en zij zei dat het 'geweldig' was. Het was een stijlvolle comfortabele plek en aan elk detail was gedacht. Communicatie was uitstekend en zowel Nigel als Melanie waren uiterst behulpzaam. Ze kon er niet uitbundiger over zijn en zou het iedereen aanbevelen die naar Aylsham komt.”

“Prachtige kleine omgebouwde schuur in een zeer rustige en landelijke omgeving. Vlekkeloos schoon met alles wat je nodig hebt om te blijven en om mee te koken. Heerlijk luchtig, maar ook gezellig en warm! Het is ongeveer 12-15 minuten naar de stad Cromer om te winkelen. Er zijn tal van lokale pubs om uit eten te gaan. Er was geen telefoonsignaal, maar de gastheren leveren WiFi.”
