"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

Here is some news from some regular guests who recently stayed in Cowman’s Cottage and got in touch to tell us about their fabulous wildlife experiences. Norfolk Hawker - close up

Another fabulous stay at Cowman’s Cottage. We came especially to find a Norfolk Hawker – not difficult to see why it’s sometimes called a green eyed hawker!  So got my ‘target’ species this year, but we just couldn’t put a foot wrong anywhere we went,  with some wonderful views of Swallowtails, marsh harriers and seals..  The highlight though was right on the doorstop – a late evening walk down the track and we saw the usual harriers and Chinese water deer but also a couple of hares close up, a crane making its way back to Hickling (against a red sunset – what an incredible sight), a barn owl (glad to see this as we haven’t seen one round the farm for a while) then a first for us – a muntjac deer stepped out of your farm yard and on to the road in front of the cottage just as we were getting back. Everything we saw was on your land I think. Thanks again for a great stay – looking forward to the next time.
