Wagtail Barn was really cosy and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Jude and Nick the owners were very accommodating and really lovely people. We had a welcome pack and gorgeous flowers on our arrival and the setting of the barn was perfect. I would thoroughly recommend Wagtail Barn as a holiday retreat as although it's out in the country, it's not too far to reach the broads, Holt, and the beaches. We took our Labrador with us and the walks around the woods and farms were fantastic and right on the doorstep. There was even a clear running stream for her to play in as only Labradors love to do! Jude the owner owns an antique glass shop in Reepham and it is well worth a visit.Mrs Nicola Worthington - 26th September 2017
