Kingfisher Barn, Sleeps 10+2 (5 Bedrooms)


Kingfisher, named after the kingfishers we see on the securely fenced moat from time to time has a porch which leads through a stable door to an open plan living/dining area with a dining table, 12 chairs, a high chair, comfortable sofas (one of which is a sofa bed) and a log burner for cold winter evenings. There is a large flat screen TV with freeview, DVD player and surround sound home cinema. There is a fully equipped kitchen with range cooker, microwave oven and washer/dryer plus a large American style fridge freezer for your convenience. There are two en-suite double bedrooms with zip and link beds on the ground floor and also a separate loo. Upstairs there are two super king sized beds and another spacious zip and link bedroom. These three bedrooms are easily large enough to add a zed bed if required which we do supply as well as a travel cot.

About the property



There are 3 adjoining pet friendly barns which have been sympathetically converted to provide spacious and comfortable accommodation. We provide free wifi, oil fired central heating, range cookers, enclosed and private walled gardens, private parking and built-in barbecues. There are no steps to get into the properties and some double en-suite rooms on the ground floors for those who may struggle with steps. We are happy for pet owners to walk their dogs on leads around the farm where there are great opportunities for bird watching. The barns are situated on the farm itself with views over open countryside and the lovely Sculthorpe Church on the driveway.

About Tony Pointer

I am Tony Pointer, farmer and now self catering accommodation owner aswell. After transfering the old grain barns and pig yards into my name in 2007, it has been my task to make these barns into the accommodation that our own family would be happy to stay in, and i think with my wifes help we have succeeded. I also enjoy meeting all those that stay in the barns and taking on their comments about the barns, which fill me with the confidence that we have got most things right(if not always the weather!).

Tony Pointer purchased this barn in 2007

Why Tony Pointer chose Fakenham

Having been born and brought up,and being the third generation on this family run farm, it was my ambition to convert these old barns which were starting to fall down. I felt that entertaining people instead of mucking out pigs was a better option for the future after going through the difficulties brought on by foot and mouth twice and swine flu outbreaks in the countryside.

There are so many lovely things about the North Norfolk coast that i find it hard to tear myself away from this area, and i hope those that stay here will take home some life long memories.

What makes this barn unique

These barns are built so that each barn can contain each family seperately, but also if all barns are booked together the people staying can enjoy the group feeling, as we can hire out marquees and bouncy castles especially for the warm weather periods.

There is ample parking space and a large grassed area at the end of the barn for all to play on.

Guestbook comments from the owner

WOW. What a fantastic wedding weekend we've had. We hired all 3 cottages and the hall which we transformed into a rainbow wonderland while all the kids enjoyed nerf wars in the grounds. The welcome pack was great. Everything was amazing

Mums 80th Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time and as we had all 3 barns we felt luxuriously spacious, extremely comfortable and while having lovely meals all together there was time and space to cluster into smaller gatherings. Everything was well thought out, very clean and well equipped. We also had the Sat night meal catered by Mange Tout which was excellent quality and value.We would definitely go back but its already booked. Thanks for adding the perfect benue to our lovely family celebrations. All the staff I have corresponded with have also been incredibly helpful. My only slight confusion was the system for payment as this was complicated and felt quite automated a little like the request for this review coming 3 times and so I presume its computer generated and as far as some of us are concerned personal is best Jo B

Beautiful cottages, beautiful location,

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic for our group of 30. Wonderful space to dine altogether. Very clean and well maintained, the owner was very helpful from booking to greeting us. The cottages were lovely and spacious, with en suites to every room. The welcome pack was first class and included bacon, eggs, wine and delicious sweets. Never had that before. I would recommend these cottages to everyone. Well placed for beaches etc

we would like to come next year please
