Enjoyed a very happy week in this good location for visiting nature parks, homes, gardens, and North Norfolk coast and countryside. Very cold Northerly winds were unfortunate for us, but Wanstead Barn was warm to return to. Short farm-track to Barns is well maintained, and the absence of town or traffic noise a delight. (lots of bird sounds & occasRead moreional RAF flyover). Views over adjacent Wheat (?) fields wonderful. Only aware we had a neighbour by presence of their cars. Morrisons store close. Hide

We had a very comfortable stay. Everything in the barn worked well-no fiddling with the telly to get it working for example. Anyone visiting should take their bikes. There are lots of lovely quiet roads and tracks to cycle on and villages to explore. The barns are spacious and have room by the stairs to store bikes. A takeaway from the Crab Shed inRead more Wells is highly recommended. Lovely break with Spring sunshine that bought the brown hares out in numbers-wonderful sight. Hide

Wanstead Barn is a beautiful, spacious yet cosy place to stay. The views and wildlife that surround it are wonderful and I thoroughly enjoyed sitting and watching the sunsets and the kestrel through the very large windows.

What an amazing location and a complete escape with stunning scenery. We saw lots of wildlife during the daytime and at night the stars took your breathe away. There is no light pollution to spoil this dazzling show. Each morning we enjoyed a cuppa on the top floor looking out the hall windows over the fields.
