Excellent place to stay. Centrally located in Norfolk and offers an escape from a hectic world. Cosy and well equipped, the log burner is an added luxury. Not the first time we have stayed here and it will not be the last.

Loved our time at Upper Barn Stable, very restful and excellent level of care and amenities from the thoughtful owners. The local town of Reepham is a delight and the town that we all remember from our childhood. Couldn't get over how friendly everyone was. The owners of the cottage were always on hand for any of our questions and had a multitude of ideas for visits and eating out. Can't recommend Upper Barn Stable highly enough.

A lovely little cottage, private & perfect for two, nice & clean & had everything we needed. It took about twenty minutes to walk in to the village, where we enjoyed a lovely meal in the local. We also cycled in to the next village on a lovely cycle path with pleasant views of the countryside. We didn't have to travel too far as we were central to lots of interesting places. We just loved the beach at Holkham were they did some of the filming for TV series Kingdom.
Overall we would definately recommend it and would certainly visit again.
Excellent place. Nice people
