About Sheila Taylor

My husband (a retired Gynaecologist) and myself have lived at Easter Cornhill which was formerly the Vicarage for South Creake for nearly 30 years. We converted Jesters Barn for our daughter when she got married. Three of our grandchildren were born whilst they were living in the Barn which they have now outgrown.

Very well equipped and cosy house, lovely owners

  • 5 of 5

Had a great 3 night stay here (family of 4 with dog!), super location for easy access to the beautiful Norfolk coast, and absolutely everything you could need in the house itself. Very warm welcome from hugely helpful owners, many thanks especially to Sheila.

A real find. Full of charm and character

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Jesters was perfect. The location was very peaceful and the accommodation was very spacious, clean, had everything you needed ,home from home. The grounds are beautiful. The barn is set behind the owners house and they were very helpful without being obtrusive. Located in a small village but really easy to drive out to beaches, towns, attractions, etc. Lots to do in the area, and further afield. Coastal villages are a short drive away. Came with our dog who was secure in the grounds. We thoroughly recommend this beautiful cottage with it charm and great location. Lovely walk around the village. The aga was a very welcome addition. Very easy to book with owners and quick to reply. If you want to relax, not worry about traffic, like the countryside, but also want easy access to loads more, this is the place to stay.
