The Old Dairy at Green Farm Barns is a contemporary barn conversion which benefits from having accommodation set out over the ground floor (please note there are a couple of steps within the property). This is the perfect holiday cottage for families or friends looking to explore the stunning Norfolk countryside and Norfolk Broads.

A generous open plan living area has been beautifully designed with modern/country interiors, blended so beautifully with the original characterful features of this barn conversion. Patio doors leading out from the living space mean that you can swing open the doors and enjoy dining alfresco. The Old Dairy is wonderfully comfortable and well equipped to ensure you have ease during your stay. The bedrooms offer a fantastic space to wind down after a long day exploring the local area or enjoying one of the local pubs on the River Yare. There is one double room and one twin room, providing a fantastic space for a family, friends or perhaps a couple looking for a bit more space.

Location-wise, when having a staycation here you’ll be set close to the Norfolk Broads; why not try hiring a self-drive boat for the day to truly enjoy the surroundings– great fun for the whole family! The barn will have you nestled in the stunning Norfolk countryside, which is ideal for walks, cycling, bird watching and just simply some time to relax, yet only being 6 miles from the Fine City of Norwich. Two wonderful pubs are within walking distance, if you’re looking for a night off preparing your own home cooked meals.

A stay at The Old Dairy offers a relaxing and fun-filled stay for the whole family.

Looking for self-catering accommodation to suit a larger group or two families? Why not take a look at The Old Stables too? It’s a neighbouring property and if booked together they offer a great space for up to 8 guests.

What we love about this property: The setting is simply stunning being surrounded by the Norfolk countryside and yet within easy reach of the Norfolk Broads and the Fine city of Norwich. There is lots to do nearby including many National Trust properties and sites, stunning beaches and numerous attractions including zoos, steam train rides and plenty of nature reserves, or just enjoying the wonderful walks and pubs that are a short walk away.

The accommodation is over one level however there are a couple of steps up from the living space to the bedrooms and bathroom.

Surlingham is a beautiful secluded rural village located on the River Yare, within the Norfolk Broads. This is ideal for bird watchers, cyclists and walkers, while only being 6 miles from the historic city of Norwich. The Old Dairy at Green Farm Barns is located on the edge of a family farm and within walking distance of two wonderful pubs which both sit nestled beside the river. There is also a small farm shop selling local produce, a patisserie selling fine Portuguese delights and a bus service to take you to the Fine city of Norwich, all within walking distance.


The Old Dairy was a great find, really comfortable and spacious, plenty of room to spread out and relax. When we arrived Lisa had left us some lovely sweet treats to enjoy including a Gluten Free cake for my son! This location is ideal for visiting the Broads, we booked on line (recommended) a boat trip in nearby Wroxham which was really relaxing, Suggest you book an early trip though as car park fills up quickly and the queues for the boats the later you go. The local pubs are a short walk away and the Patisserie is worth a visit with amazing cakes and pastries. Would highly recommend these cottages/barns and will be back.

Mrs N,

Lovely stay, beautiful accommodation. We had everything we needed, great scenery and we were very lucky with sunny weather.

The S,

Thank you for a lovely stay. A real home away from home. Everything we needed.

Previous Customer,

A lovely conversion with modern facilities. Spacious, clean, well equipped, private courtyard, welcome treats. Everything you’d need or want in holiday accommodation. Thank you Lisa and Tom for providing a home from home. A return visit is definitely on the cards.

Mrs H,

The Old Dairy was a fantastic place to stay, with everything being of a high quality. A lovely welcome tea was laid out for our arrival which was a nice touch. We enjoyed a trip into Norwich (15 minutes by car), walks around the local area, and leisurely drinks at waterside pubs which were easily reached on foot. We would definitely recommend this cottage.

Mrs R,

We had a great holiday in The Old Dairy and we were able to explore Norfolk. Everything was just right.

Stayed in the area for a wedding. Great location, very clean and perfect for us all to relax in. Lisa was so helpful. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Old Dairy.

Miss B,

A really lovely barn conversion in a great location. Two interesting nature reserves within walking distance. National cycle route 1 into Norfolk from the property and lots of nice cycling in the vicinity. Kayak slipway from the next village onto the broads. Two friendly local pubs within a mile or so both on the river bank with lovely views. A really enjoyable holiday. Thank you to the host Lisa who was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend this property and location.

Ms F,
