Bed & Breakfast & Holiday Cottages Norfolk


We have six large en-suite rooms on the ground floor, each beautifully colour-themed with fantastic power showers and luxury towels. They have wonderfully comfy twin or super king-size beds with crisp linen and cosy, pretty duvets. These rooms look out over the barn courtyard with Kingfisher looking out over farmland.

Extra-special rooms

Take a look at our Extra Special Rooms for that extra hint of luxury and additional space – perfect for a special occasion or if you just want to treat yourselves! Each individually designed, all offering a large bathroom and lounge along with a private court yard garden.

Holiday Cottages

If you’d prefer, we have 2 farm holiday cottages on the edge of the village of Sea Palling. Finished to a high standard of comfort they each sleep 6 with large enclosed gardens looking across farmland to the sea. As a extra plus they have a hidden door which can link the cottages turing them into a house for 12

We can promise you a very warm and friendly welcome at Dairy Barns Bed and Breakfast and Holiday Cottages Norfolk which is beautifully situated between the picturesque village of Hickling nestled between the glorious waterways of the Norfolk Broads and the stunning Norfolk coastline at Sea Palling and Waxham, close to the seal colony at Horsey Gap .

Dairy Barns form part of Lound Farm, a working family farm covering 360 acres of grazing marshes and arable land.  We love welcoming people to our home and pride ourselves on doing everything possible to help you enjoy your stay with us. Whether you are planning to stay for a short break or a longer holiday we want to be sure that you’ll be just as happy to stay in as you will be to spend your days out exploring the wonderful Norfolk coast and countryside.

We offer 6 cosy rooms, 3 extra-special rooms and 2 self-catering holiday cottages. There’s a very relaxed atmosphere, a gentle smattering of luxury and plenty of flexibility. Our friendly staff will happily share their local knowledge to help you plan and make the most of your days away.

You’ll love our farmhouse breakfasts freshly prepared with local produce and served in our beautiful main barn.

We got married yesterday at Dairy Barns and can honestly say it was the best day of our lives! We fell in love with the barns the first time we stayed in Swallows Nest 3 years ago, we loved it so much we booked it as our wedding venue after breakfast the next morning! Everything has been so well planned, Hannah does an amazing job in the lead up to the wedding and nothing was too much trouble. The wedding day was perfect – Hannah and the team are absolutely amazing and every single person there is worth their weight in gold. Everyone said how lovely it was and how brilliant all the staff were. The food was fantastic, the rooms are beautiful, everything is beautiful! We couldn’t have had a better day, it was so relaxed and we couldn’t have done it without their help and support  Thank you SO much xx

Best Day of our Lives

We can’t wait for a return visit to the Dairy Barns!!
Located in the perfect position for trips to the boards, the coast and local towns…. just ask Hannah and Jill they are so knowledgeable about the local area they will be able to help you with places to go.
The accommodation itself is awesome! Such attention to detail! Beautiful furnished, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Little touches like fresh flowers, homemade cake and fresh milk make your arrival extra special.
Breakfast….. what can I say! Wonderful!! The waffles are to die for and the cooked breakfast is yummy.
If I could give 10 stars it still wouldn’t be enough! Thank you!!

Waffles to die for!

We got married at Dairy Barns on Saturday and wow what can I say, the venue, the team, the food, the rooms…everything was just perfect. From when we first set eyes on Dairy Barns we knew it was the perfect venue for us, a gorgeous intimate setting with a lovely owner! Hannah was a great help through the whole planning process, nothing was too much trouble and she helped us create a very memorable and special day. When we arrived on the Friday we were greeted by Jo who made us feel so welcome and was on hand for anything and everything. The rooms were stunning, particularly the extra special ones! We can’t wait to come and stay again for our first anniversary. On our wedding day Hannah and her team were absolutely brilliant! Everyone was so friendly and welcoming, they helped to ensure the whole day ran smoothly and made sure everyone was well looked after. The bouquets Hannah made for us too were beautiful! Honestly thank you so much, we were so pleased with everything and our guests were very happy too! Danielle and James xx
