Shain, London, 

Really lovely barn conversion! Open plan kitchen/diner/living room which was great with a little one. Very modern and clean and felt very homely! Clare was a lovely host, checking to make sure everything was ok. Fantastic location with lots to do and see! Definitely recommend!! (Old Dairy Barn)

Anna, Banbury, 

I fell in love with Norfolk and it's fantastic beaches and the accommodation was perfect, just what I was after. It was lovely to see the seals in their natural environment at Horsey Gap. I have never seen so many seals in one spot before well worth a visit! I had a lovely time, thank you. (Little Bengate Barn)

Julia & Alun, 

What you see in the photos is what you get. Very clean, very quiet location. (The Old Dairy Barn)

David & Julie, 

Little Bengate Barn is exactly as picture in the photos and description. Spotlessly clean, perfectly equipped, and in a wonderful location for exploring Norfolk. The bed is super-comfy and there’s an excellent, strong, hot shower. The Barn is equipped with everything you need to make a meal or just relax after a long day. The location feels very quiet and peaceful but is, in fact, only a few minutes from supermarkets and pubs. We’d love to come back some day! (Little Bengate Barn)

We have had a lovely restful stay in this lovely barn conversion. Lovely and clean and well equipped. Went to the Broads Museum and enjoyed a trip on their little steam boat.

We have loved our stay at Bengate. It is perfectly placed to explore the countryside and the coast, and we have made the most of its situation. It is spacious and comfortable and well equipped. We will definitely be visiting again. (Visitor Book comment) - Also reviewed on our Google listing by Chris and Julie - 'We stayed for a week, it wasn't long enough. Our cottage was lovely, very spacious and clean. As cyclist we found it's location to be perfect for us, set in the quiet countryside & a nice distance from the coast. Definitely a place that we will revisit'. (Little Bengate Barn).

Sarah and Joe, 

We have self-catered for over 40+ years and this has to be one of the best we have stayed in. Perfect for two people. Have so loved re-visiting places we knew when we lived in Norwich in the 70's. Now hoping to move back to rural Norfolk. Thank you. (Little Bengate Barn)

Mr and Mrs Colbridge, Durham, 

This is our second stay at Bengate Barns. Lovely cottages and friendly hosts. We will return in future. (The Cart Lodge)

Peter and Kate, Cheshire, 

Thanks for having us and it’s a great place you have. 5 stars from all parts of the trip from the easy arrival to the check out. A real home from home feel and a perfect ‘base’ for us to explore the north Norfolk coast which we love every time we visit. (The Cart Lodge)

Melvyn, Jo and Children (11,12), 

A perfect base for a few days away to explore Norfolk. Enjoyed the Broads and market towns. Thanks for a lovely stay - really cosy, comfortable and relaxing. (The Old Dairy Barn - was Courtyard Barn)

Clare and Steve, Wentworth, 

Really good private rural accommodation - spacious and bright. Everything you need of a self catering place to stay. Not difficult to find and not too far off the main routes for excellent access to the 'Broads'. Owners available and happy to help and respond to texts any time night or day. Was only here briefly but an excellent spot would stay again if adventures take me in this direction at a later date. The local seal colony are just incredible to see a wildlife enthusiasts must.(Little Bengate Barn)

Kate, London,

Jodie and Matt, Sutton Bridge, 

Care is taken to prepare the space and little things add to the experience, such as milk in the fridge, tea and coffee and biscuits at arrival, washing up liquid and supplies,a little first aid kit for cuts. Very clean quiet space. I highly recommend this place...(Little Bengate Barn)
