"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 love “our” seals which appear on the beach between Horsey and Winterton every winter with hundreds of pups arriving during the course of the pupping season.  Watched over by Friends of Horsey Seals volunteer seal wardens, this season saw what was thought to be the first ever recorded twin birth in the world.

Now this has been confirmed following testing by The Institute of Marine Research in Norway which revealed the pups do have the same mother.  The pups – a male and a female – were rescued after their mother had not fed them for 24 hours and taken to the RSPCA Hospital at East Winch where they were named R2-D2 and C-3PO where they are both reported to be in good health

Last year, 60,000 people visited the colony where 800 seal pups were born and we are supporting the work of The Friends of Horsey Seals with a voluntary £1 contribution on every booking taken this year.
