Manor Barn, Sidestrand

  • 5 of 5

I can't recommend this property enough. Five star house, beautifully appointed, positioned on the cliffs with a sea view. Perfect for families and friends. Great walking, beaches, pubs and fantastic attractions for children, close by. The house is as good as your own, if not better. Lovely , well equipped kitchen, double-aspect fire and lovely bedrooms.

Absolutely stunning!

  • 5 of 5

Well, what can I say.......

THANK YOU! The barn is incredible! Beautiful, wonderfully appointed and loved by every single one of us.

Myself, my husband, two children (9,13), my parents, my brother, sister in law, nephew (4) and bump spent the week with huge smiles on our faces!

We were immediately talking about coming back next year!

We had such a lovely time and having stayed in various holiday cottages previously we can honestly say this wins on every level, hands down.

We were sad to leave, but happy to be able to make way for another family to enjoy their stay.

Beautiful barn and location

  • 5 of 5

Booked as a surprise birthday celebration for my husband and was not disappointed !! Exceeded all expectations, the barn is beautifully decorated with lovely furnishings. It was very clean, well maintained and wonderfully equipped with everything we could need. The beach is so easily reached and a lovely sandy, quiet spot. Andrew and Carolyn were very easy to contact and always responded promptly to any enquiries before our stay. Thank you so much for a memorable birthday celebration, I hope we can visit again soon.

Wonderful holiday at Manor Barn, in its idyllic spot overlooking the sea. Rooms furnished to a very high standard, spotless, and so well equipped for a family holiday. Owners had obviously thought of everything, and the welcome basket was a lovely surprise ! Would HGHLY RECOMMEND !

Amazing property on the North Norfolk coast

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous property! We rented the barn for a family holiday to celebrate a 90th birthday. The barn is in a beautiful spot on the North Norfolk coast. It is furnished and equipped to a very high standard. There was plenty of space for 10 family members! It was very clean and comfortable with good access to the beach and other attractions. It was easy to get food supplies and lots of good eating places nearby. We would certainly recommend the barn to anyone as it is secluded but amenities close to hand as needed. We would definitely rent the property again. Perhaps for the big 100! If not before!

Fantastic family holiday by the sea

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in July and had a fabulous stay. Our group was 6 adults and 4 children and we had an amazing time. The sea views were to die for and the kids were on the beach everyday.

We were stunned when we arrived at Manor Barn, the attention to detail and space are absolutely ideal.

We had one rainy day, but that didn't effect our stay, as Manor Barn even has a cupboard full of games & books, and they even have Netflix on their Smart TV, all of which was free for us to use.

We were so impressed, we have already booked for next year, and cannot wait to stay there again.

Many thanks Manors Barn - thumbs up from us !!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I booked Manor Barn as the base for a surprise get-together of old friends for my wife's 40th birthday.

I chose the barn because, on paper, it fulfilled all the requirements. My wife loves a real fire and this place has a wood-burning stove (with a double aspect, ie, glass in two sides, so you see the flame in the dining and living areas), it's also a traditional building with exposed beams and flint walls, yet has many modern touches and feels light and airy. It's just a couple of hundred metres from the sea on the Norfolk coast, just south of Cromer. In fact, you can see the sea from many of the rooms. And it has plenty of bathrooms.

All I can say is that the photos on the website barely do the place justice. It's very tastefully finished and furnished to a high standard and feels like a real home. It sleeps 10 in five bedrooms and manages to feel spacious yet cosy at the same time.

A small starter-hamper was waiting for us when we arrived, which we were expecting, but we didn't expect everything in it to be either organic or home-made (such as a lemon cake and a jar of marmalade). Very impressed. The barn is very well equipped, with lots of cooking utensils, pots and pans, a large stove, two fridges and a freezer, a laundry room with washing powders and all sorts of useful cleaning items (I splashed red wine on a shirt the first night and there was a bottle of stain remover handy). Plus things like foil, clingfilm and sandwich bags. All those things you often have to stock up on when you arrive, wasting valuable time shopping.

Other nice touches included a vase of fresh flowers, good-quality toiletries in all the bathrooms and lots of candles. And the place is warm - we were there in December with with temperatures ranging from zero to 6C and the oil-fired heating was very effective.

Walk to the end of the garden and you go through a gate and down steps to the beach, from where you can walk to Overstrand and then on to Cromer. The first bit can be a bit of a clamber, so an alternative is to go along the road (there's a pavement) to Overstrand, which is just 10 minutes' walk, then take the cliff-top path to Cromer (just over an hour in all).

All-in-all, a great place that we wouldn't hesitate to recommend and to which we would return tomorrow. (Mike P - Rome, Italy)

We had such a good time that we booked up for next year before the holiday had even finished. There was more than enough room for the kids and we had barbecues every night. The beach was only a short walk away. Highly recommended. (O Jelley, Leicestershire)

What a fantastic place - lovely surroundings, fantastic view of the sea and excellent property and facilities. We stayed as a family of 10, 4 adults and 6 children, and it was ideal - we have recommended to all of our friends - we cannot wait to go back next year. (J Ellis, Guildford)
