About Barefoot Retreats

AT BAREFOOT RETREATS we are passionate about marketing luxury holiday properties that are individual, special and breath-taking; that simply can’t be found elsewhere. From beautiful bolt holes, coastal gems to majestic manor houses and rural retreats, their unique features will define our portfolio and offer guests a standard of property and luxury that will exceed expectations.

We will offer our guests the keys to some of the most amazing and truly individual private homes in Norfolk, providing a distinct laid-back luxury holiday experience to ensure they feel at home from the moment they arrive until they return the keys. With an in-depth knowledge of our hand-picked property portfolio, we will ensure that we match the right guests with the property of their dreams.

As a home owner, we can advise on everything; from how to maximise the earning potential of your home and increase the appeal of your property; to offering guidance or managing interior styling and staging and looking after full-scale renovations on your behalf.

As a team, we have experience of letting our own homes and many years working in the luxury hospitality sector, which will be invaluable in creating a unique and special home-from-home boutique hotel experience for our guests.

If you are already marketing your home – either independently or with another agency – and are looking for a fresh and innovative approach, please get in touch or pop along to our brand new offices located on Overy Road in Burnham Market join us for a drink and chat.

We’d love to meet you!
