About Victoria Searle
Victoria and Jamie live in the farmhouse next to the Barn, Jamie is in the property development trade and decided to convert the barn into a luxurious holiday let, renovated and furnished to the highest standard whilst retaining the true character and features if the grade II listed building. Having stayed in a few holiday cottages we decided not to cut corners and to provide our guests with a comfortable, welcoming stay.
Why Victoria Searle chose Newark & Sherwood
Norwell is a beautiful village with a real 'back in time' feel. It is a quiet village, and the shop and the pub are brilliant, meaning that you don't have to go far if you don't want to.

This property is a 'studio' set-up (ie bed, living room and dining area all in the same space) with separate kitchen and shower room, ideal for 2 people, well equipped, spacious and very cosy. Dogs are accepted - we stayed with 2 dogs (small). Owner lives in adjacent house and was friendly and helpful when we were booking and staying there. Plenty to do in the area. Pub is right next door and serves good food.

Norwell is a beautiful, un-spoilt village with a shop that hosts an outreach post office on a Monday and Thursday morning. The village pub is a real hit with guests, serving a good pint and good food.
