"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

Caring for the environment

We love where we live and the beautiful countryside around us which is why we want to help protect it. The Norfolk Coast and Broads National Park are beautiful places which is why so many people come to stay with us and chose to return year on year.

We are trying to reduce the impact that we and our guests have on our environment, and even though there are days when we fall short and there are lots of things we know we can do better, our environmental policy helps to remind us and inform our customers of what we are striving to achieve.

  • As many ingredients as possible for your breakfast come from the immediate local area – we are proud to use a fantastic range of great local producers.
  • We encourage wildlife and bio-diversity on our farm, being part of environmental schemes and taking part in bird surveys with the RSPB.
  • We collect run off water from the roof to water the garden.
  • We use low energy light bulbs and have many external and corridor lights on timers.
  • The barns are really well insulated from top to bottom.
  • Our housekeeping staff recycle the paper, glass and plastic bottles from your bedroom waste bins.
  • We strive to reduce our use of paper and correspond as much by e-mail as possible.
  • We change your sheets every 3 days and your towels are changed every other day
  • We use bathroom toiletries with are ethically sourced as well as being lovely to use.

If you would like to help us protect the environment we ask that;

  • When you are not in your room please turn out the lights as you leave.
  • When the central heating is on please consider turning down the thermostat on the radiator before opening the window to cool the room.
  • Even though there is a large supermarket in nearby Stalham consider using Sea Palling Village Shop and the Truly Local farm shop for some of your purchases,  both of which are closer and supports some great local producers.
  • You could even leave your car in the car park all day and enjoy a car free day out – there’s loads of options, just ask us we would be happy to give you some ideas.
  • We give all our guests the opportunity to donate on departure to the Friends of Horsey Seals, they provide wardens to keep our local seals and seal pups safe during the breeding season and provide information to visitors coming to see the seals
