"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 have a super farm shop and garden centre just outside Stalham called A.G.Meales, its about 10 minutes from us.  We use their tomatoes and mushrooms for breakfast along with lots of their fruit and vegetables. They also stock a great range of local meat products so if you are staying in one of our cottages it’s a far more interesting place to get your groceries than the local Tesco!

You can do “table top” pick your own strawberries and other fruit in the summer months which lots of children have never experienced. I was terrible as a child we lived opposite a pick your own farm and it was always one for the tub and one for me….

This summer they built a new coffee shop called “Vera’s”. I have to say I’m not a great fan of the name but the interior of the new coffee shop is bright, cheerful and contemporary with a wide range of lunch and light bites options.   It was Winter when we went but in the summer months they have a large outdoor seating area for sunny days. I went in with my 13 year old son Joe and he loved the giant sausage roll, followed by an enormous piece of Victoria Sponge cake.  I opted for roasted tomato soup with chunky bread, it was piping hot and delicious.  You have to order at the till and they then bring your hot food to the table.  The prices were reasonable and the service good so I have to say if you are passing “Vera’s” it worth a visit and you can stock up on all sorts of local produce while you are there.  http://www.agmeale.co.uk/vera-s-coffee-shop/
