Amazing home. Top quality fixtures and fittings, beds and sofas are both super comfy. Wonderful beaches and walks on our foot step and a golf course. What more could we ask for? To top it off all of the weather was perfect so we spent many happy days in the garden. Happy memories made! We will most defiantly be returning!

Rick and Family

Another lovely and relaxing stay at Barefoot. Beautiful, spacious, well appointed house which we have all enjoyed very much. Great location for walks to the beach which our dog absolutely loved! We were very lucky with the weather and enjoyed the garden as well. We look forward to our next visit!

Simon, Rachel and Doug.

Another lovely and relaxing stay with Barefoot Retreats. Beautiful, spacious and well appointed house which we love and enjoyed very much. Great location for walks to the beach which 'Darcy dog' absolutely loved! Very lucky with a sunny week and the garden as well! We look forward to our next visit!

Simon, Rachael and Darcy.

Amazing house, as soon as you walk in, you feel at home! Everything you need, next time I will not bring anything except the food. Beds are super comfortable as are the sofa's.TV was great for the evening and we were able to log into our own accounts to watch our favourite programmes. So clean, tidy and well decorated, we have definitely taken some inspiration home with us. Amazing long walks along the beach at Brancaster, it takes about 20 minutes to walk from the house. Holkham beach is just beautiful, we wish we'd packed a lunch to tak as you could spend hours exploring. The dog has been living his best life. We loved it here so much we have booked to come back again.

Great house, great location would definitely return. House had everything we needed and exceeded our expectations. Thank you

Andy, Jen, Beth, Alan & Rory

Wow! An amazing house, had a fantastic time.


What a great place to stay. Very well equipped and comfortable. We would defiantly would stay here again. Brilliant location for all the great beaches in North Norfolk.


A beautiful place to stay. Well appointed in every way. Everything we needed to cook meals. Such comfy beds, great TV stations and easy to use. Very prompt service. Delightful interiors. Thank you!


We've had a lovely family getaway at 'First Wave'. The layout worked very well, allowing us to have our own space and with lovely weather the chair on the landing was the perfect spot to do a crossword! There is so much to explore locally, we defiantly recommend crabbing at Wells, the deer safari at Holkham and the local beaches for the dogs and kids! We look forward to trying Barefoot Retreats again!
