Our Story

Hello from Hannah, Ian, Joe and Harriet. We’re the Deane family and love welcoming people to our family farm. You can also meet Frank, Lawrence, Paddy and Pod, the horses and ponies and Shadow and Blackberry, the dogs.

We are also incredibly lucky to have a fantastic team of staff who love their jobs and want to help you make the most of your stay!

We pride ourselves on offering a warm welcome to everyone and helping you relax here on the farm or giving you ideas about exploring our wonderful part of Norfolk.

Dairy Barns forms part of Lound Farm and the family farming business, which has been in the family for 3 generations. Our lovely Barn & the B&B were originally our working Dairy Farm, with over 100 Cows being milked in what is your bedrooms, and many calves were born in what is now the undercover barn car park; how things have changed! We opened for business in 2005, and it’s amazing how many guests have been coming back since we started. We still care as passionately about our business now as when we opened and really hope you book a stay with us.

We are still very much a working farm with 360 acres of arable and grazing marshes.  We have sheep grazing through the winter months and a suckler cattle herd in the summer.  Ian grows wheat, barley, peas, potatoes, and grass for hay and haylage, so with the barns as well, it keeps us very busy.
