About

Dairy Barns – Norfolk Bed & Breakfast

• 6 Super King and Twin Rooms
• 3 Extra Special Bed & Breakfast Rooms 

A warm welcome and touch of luxury awaits at Dairy Barns Bed & Breakfast set between the Norfolk Broads and the North Norfolk coastline on a working family farm with 6 cosy Bed & Breakfast rooms and 3 Extra-Special rooms. You’ll receive a personal and friendly welcome with homemade cake on arrival. There’s a relaxed atmosphere, a touch of luxury and plenty of flexibility. Additionally, two self-catering cottages are also available. If you are looking for a group stay we can accomodate up to 18 adults in the bed and breakfast barns plus most rooms have space for 1 or 2 children sharing.  

Our 6 rooms on the gounrd floor are each beautifully colour-themed and look out over the courtyard garden or farmyard.  These rooms are of course very comfortable, spacious, well-equipped and come with what we consider to be those important little finishing touches such as luxury toiletries, fresh flowers and of course television and well stocked hot drinks tray. All en-suite with fantastic power showers and luxury towels and have wonderfully comfy twin or super king size beds with crisp linen and cosy, pretty duvets.

We welcome guests with limited mobility or wheelchair users with one of our rooms offering wider doorways and a large wet room style bathroom with shower seat. It is also located closer to the Breakfast Barn than other rooms. Please contact us to discuss specific needs.

Our Extra Special Rooms are completely self-contained with a lounge area with TV, comfy sofa and dining table, luxury bathroom with fluffy towels, robes and  toiletries provided. They have super king size bed and each has doors leading onto their own private courtyard garden. All have a kettle and Nespresso machine and of course a fridge and glasses in case you want to enjoy a glass of wine or champagne. Each Extra Special Room has their own front door for complete privacy and they are very special places to stay.  They are each individually desiged so all slighty different.  Full floor plans and details are on our website.

We have a snug coastal-themed guest lounge which is a comfortable place to relax in the evening or on a rainy day with a selection of good books, board games, wine glasses and a corkscrew and for your enjoyment an enclosed garden with large courtyard is available for our guests with a number of garden games for all the family.

Norfolk is a renowned for its home-grown food and we use only the very best fresh, local ingredients for our breakfast menu for our Farmhouse Breakfast from trusted local suppliers. We offer an extensive choice from our traditional Full English Farmhouse Breakfast with rare breed pork sausages and bacon to delicious homemade waffles. We also offer fresh fruit, cereals, toast with local jams and marmalades.  You can enjoy breakfast in the large barn or we can deliver it to your room, which ever you prefer.

Enjoy the beautiful setting in 360 acres of farmland, nestled between the Broads and the coast, with farm walks and advice about where best to spot the abundant bird life and even red deer. Guests are also welcome to say hello to our horses and ponies on the farm.


We can offer recommendations of places we know and love ourselves – where to eat, places to visit, the best beaches and pubs and practical help with venue or restaurant bookings. Dairy Barns is an excellent base to explore Norfolk and is well located for great local activities including walking, cycling and bird watching as well as heading further afield to take in Norfolk’s coastline, rural landscape, market towns and villages, historic houses, wildlife, city life and so much to see and do for all the family.

There is Wireless Internet connectivity throughout, although due to our rural location speeds can be slow!
