Guest reviews

Excellent Clean accommodation very well equipped.

The Armitt's, 30th of March 2024

We rented the property over the Christmas period 2023 and we very much appreciated that the owner had arranged for the Housekeeper to put up a really beautifully decorated Christmas tree in the sitting room. They also provided festive decorations on the staircase and landing. It all looked amazing and made our Christmas perfect! Thank you so much! Seeing the joy experienced by my children and grandchildren when we arrived and switched on the Christmas tree lights in the sitting room. I normally do the washing up even when we rent a house on holiday and boy was it great to have a kitchen with TWO side by side dishwashers to use - WOW!!

The Trevor, 8th of January 2024

We had a great time staying at the property. Everything you could have wanted was available, one of the best kitted out kitchens we have ever stayed in. We would definitely revisit this property. The location is ideal for visiting the beach and using local bus routes. Having the beach so close was great, within walking distance. Close proximity to local bus routes was a bonus. Information folder was very comprehensive .

The Fletcher's, 19th of October 2023

Lovely cottage furnished to a high standard which comfortably accommodated us for our recent 2-week stay. Heronsway is ideally situated for access to Old Hunstanton beach and beach side cafe, both of which are very good and popular. White horse at Holme, a 10 minute walk, is good for pub food at lunch or tea. Norfolk wildlife is good for beach walks. Eric’s pizzas are close by and good.

The Matthew's, 6th of September 2023

Although the weather was not kind to us, we had the most wonderful stay. The barn is beautiful and was immaculately clean on our arrival . Everything you could need had been thought of. The garden was great for two five year olds to play safely in and it was lovely that it provided shelter from the wind. Each room having an en-suite provided privacy for three families. I would highly recommend staying here as you won’t be disappointed. Wonderful open plan living area.

The Richardson's, 5th of September 2023

We had a lovely week at this well equipped and relaxing house. The weather was good, so we were able to make use of the outdoor eating area for several meals. Lovely and close to Brancaster beach, - very easy to walk to from the house.The highlight of our stay was getting lots of beach time. We also made good use of the local tennis court.

The Matthews, 11th of August 2023

Fabulous place to stay. Accommodated all our family comfortably and has a wonderful west facing garden where we enjoyed the sunshine. Highly recommended.

The Bank's, 29th of June 2023

We enjoyed a very enjoyable stay at the property.The large downstairs room was exceptionally good and comfortable and was extremely well equipped.

The Oldershaw's, 20th of March 2023

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay and thought the accommodation was excellent. Also thank you for recommending The Ship for Sunday lunch which proved to be spot on.
This was our very first holiday in Norfolk but we will definitely be returning in which case I will contact Sowerbys again.

Routledges', 6th of April 2018

We had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed staying at Manor Farm Barns.
A very happy and memorable holiday.

Clampitt Party, 30th of March 2018

Feeling of space, tasteful fittings and furnishings, well equipped, great utility room, en suite bedrooms,it had pretty much everything. Good instructions for each bedroom/bathroom.
I couldn't think of one thing we didn't like.
A larger outside dining table would have been helpful plus a sun umbrella to provide shade from the midday sun - but we were there during a heatwave!

Angela, 16th of June 2017

This is the best cottage we have ever stayed in, really well stocked, gorgeous decor and furnishings. The position is perfect.

Electric Vehicle charging

Cars may only be charged if there is an EV charging point fitted at the property. The cost of electricity is NOT included in the rental price and Sowerbys Holiday Cottages must be notified if the charger is used and an additional surcharge will be made. Due to insurance purposes, guests must never charge their car using a standard outdoor plug or an extension cable linking to a domestic plug.
