"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 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.
