"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

Our Story

Ian, Hannah, Joe and Harriet – we’re the Deane family and we love welcoming people to our home. We are also incredibly lucky to have a fantastic team of staff who really like guests 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 to give you ideas about how to explore our wonderful part of Norfolk.

Along with the people on the farm you may well meet… Molly, Frankie, Pod & Paddy the horses and ponies, and Shadow the Labrador with Blackberry the Jack Russell (they very much come as a pair)

Dairy Barns forms part of Lound Farm and the family farming business which has been in Ian’s 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 calf’s were born in what is now the undercover barn car park, how things have changed! We opened for business in 2005 and its 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.
