gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous, FAB PLACE, FAB FACILITIES, FAB TIME HAD BY ALL. THANKS.   McGuigan's, O'Shea's & Beestons.

More of a home from home than a holiday home.  The accommodation is immaculate - everything you could possibly need - and more!!  Such a lovely part of the country too!!  Got as far as Cromer & Norwich.  Downham Market was our favourite place for meals.  Everyone in the shops are so friendly & chatty  A week is not enough.  We will be back to explore the places we never managed to fit in on this visit.   Alan, Lesley, David & Ellen Bridge.  from Merseyside

We had a great time.  The accommodation is fantastic and we've used all the amenities to the full.  We can recommend a trip to see the seals.  We also went to Norfolk Lavender & Wells-next-the-sea and a trip out to Ely.  We ate out at The Hare & The Angel but mostly enjoyed the Oriental Palace.  Many thanks to Mary and Derek for a " top" holiday.   Harrison Family from Lancashire.

 8th time -  it just gets better XXX See you next year, Kay, Steeve, Verity, Oliver & Patty.

We all really enjoyed our stay at Rafters Barn.  It was an excellent holiday that was made even more pleasant with the hospitality of the owners & friendly area.  We had a relaxing experience in the jacuzzi and games room, - can't wait to come back.  Our hosts put the iceing on the cake for a Birthday weekend.  Thank you.                 Henrietta, London.

Another wonderful holiday in your lovely "Barn".  Thanks for your friendly welcome & hospitality.  Had some lovely times in the hot tub.  Fishing good, caught everyday mostly.  Enjoyed the peace of the area.  Look forward to coming again next year.            Joy & Brian, Colchester, Essex.

Thank you so much for the warm welcome.  The cottage was so comfortable and warm, weather was great so we did'nt need the heating on a great deal.  Would strongly recomment Denver Mill, such a tranquil and beatiful place, bread was great.  Also would recommend both The Angel & The Hare Arms pubs great food.  Watching the Little Owl in the nest box and have a Barn Owl fly in front of us.  Thank you once again for a delightfull place to stay.  Disabled facilities excellent can't fault them, thanks again.  Kathleen, Bernard & Ian,  Stanford-le-Hope, Essex.  (Stayed in March)

This is the second time I have been here and it is still an amazing holiday.  You can never run out of things to do, thank you so much Mary & Derek.  P.S. I LOVE THE POOL.  Master M Palmer
