About Caroline

I am Caroline, married to Kevin, we have a son at University and a daughter at school.

I am a Nurse working part time and Kevin is a builder.

Caroline purchased this barn in 1997

Why Caroline chose Norfolk & The Broads

In 1997 we bought The Old Stables and converted them into living accommodation , Kevin did all the work and we have since added extensions to our property.

In 2010 Kevin commenced work on the barn within our grounds to convert the barn into a holiday let .

Sunnyside Barn is now complete , it has been converted to a high standard .

The village of Berghapton is delightful, with many lovely walks and beautiful countryside.

What makes this barn unique

Peaceful location.

Uninterrupted views of the countryside from Sunnyside Barn.

Central location for Norwich , lovely beaches and the Norfolk broads.

Beautiful accomodation in tranquil setting

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 6 (3 couples) looking for a weekend break - however, everyone wanted something particular - spacious accom, near the coast, 3 double rooms, a bathroom each, it was also half term so a tall order. BUT Sunnyside Barn met all those requirements and went above and beyond our expectations. The barn has been converted beautifully and every room has been furnished with quality and style . We wanted for nothing and the provision of some milk, eggs and a homemade cake on arrival were lovely touches. Caroline was welcoming and friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Although you are in a rural farm setting the location for us was perfect - 40 mins to Southwold for the day, a boat on the Broads on Sunday and a wonderful meal at the Water's Edge restaurant in Bramerton. All in all a marvellous weekend and I wouldn't hesitate to return. Thank you Caroline and Kevin for sharing such a gem.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for writing such a lovely review, it is very much appreciated. We are glad you had such a memorable weekend, as you quite rightly say we are in a peaceful rural setting and guests love the views of the fields and the quietness of the Countryside. We are lucky enough to have the Norfolk Broads close by so a boat trip is a popular activity to do whilst staying here. The rooms are all decorated to provide a calm and restful atmosphere, with the added bonus of a bathroom each ( 2 rooms are ensuite ). I like to provide some provisions for guests arrival and its always nice to have a cup of tea and homemade cake after a long journey ! Thank you for being such lovely guests and for looking after the barn so well. We would love to welcome you back to Sunnyside in the future . `Kind regards Caroline and Kevin.

Beautiful converted barn in great location

  • 5 of 5

Set in a lovely quiet location, this barn has been converted into a stylish 3-bedroom home with a large open plan area. The kitchen was well stocked and the rooms were all of a good size. Would highly recommend staying here for anyone looking to explore the picturesque surrounding area of Norfolk.

Perfect rural retreat

  • 5 of 5

The entire property inside and out was amazing. Lovely outdoor space overlooking trees and field. Immaculate indoor space. The pictures do honestly not do justice... spotlessly clean and not a thing missing you could ask for.

Our toddler loved the amazing toys.

And the couch.... most comfortable I've ever sat on.

Caroline was also a pleasure to deal with. Recommend this property without hesitation.

I have to admit, when we opened the door to the barn, I had one of those moments, where it took my breath away a little! The sun was shining (I know...strange!) and the barn just looked amazing. The owners had added lovely touches, including cakes (they tasted homemade ;)), which were very welcome after our drive. There were various toys / boardgames and puzzles to keep the children entertained, but there was also lots of outside space for them to play. We banned ipads for the weekend and they didn't even notice. They loved it and wanted to move in forever :)

This place is an absolute gem and I'm so glad we found it. I really hope to stay again some day. It's a good base to go out from (we went to Africa Alive, Lowestoft and Southwold beach) but equally it's a relaxing, comfortable place to hang out for the day and just enjoy the peace and quiet. If you've been lucky enough to come across this barn, don't ponder about it, just book!

More than a home from home, much more !

  • 5 of 5

If Sunnyside Barn is a home from home, I want to move house ! The inviting warmth, character and cosiness of its idyllic situation was only matched by the welcome from our hosts Caroline and Kevin. They had thought of everything to put my wife and I at our ease as soon as we set foot in their captivatingly comfortable bijou barn conversion. If you're lucky and smart enough to book a weekend away here, stop at the top of the drive to Sunnyside and take a moment at the top of the meadow to take the scene in. It's simply stunning, sitting in a beautiful rural corner of Norfolk's Chet Valley. My wife and I had had a hectic Monday to Friday but within minutes we had forgotten all the travails of the working week. From the luxurious Egyptian cotton sheets to the immaculately furnished sitting room your stay will be a heaven from home !

Beautiful property in peaceful location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely property for a weekend with our two grown-up sons and my mother in order to attend a family wedding a few miles away at Hales Hall which was so much more relaxing than staying in a hotel! It is beautifully appointed and extremely well equipped with everything you might need. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and beds were comfy. We were welcomed when we arrived and there was delicious home-made cake which we all thoroughly enjoyed. I had organised a food shop for our arrival which Caroline had kindly agreed to accept should we have been delayed - as it happened we arrived in time. There is a taxi driver very locally who we booked in advance for our return from the wedding which meant no-one had to drive.

We would thoroughly recommend staying at Sunnyside Barn and just wish we could have stayed longer! Thankyou Caroline and Kevin.
