Newly landscaped and planted up, the garden to the rear is a great enclosed space in which children can happily play while you are safe in the knowledge of knowing exactly where they are. There is also a paved area with outside dining and BBQ, ideal for those lazy summer afternoons and evening.

The facilities include; two integrated ovens, one steam and the other conventional, a Siemens coffee machine, ceramic induction hob, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and microwave.

Enjoyed our stay at your lovely house.Quality furnishings and fittings , comfy beds and everything we needed in the kitchen. Thank you and we will return another time!
Great place to stay for the weekend really enjoyed it!
Fabulous house and garden. So many of some of the loveliest gems this country has to offer, and all so near to Docking. We've had an amazing time.
Hot, hot, hot!! Best week of the year! What a place to enjoy it. We had a second home in Great Bircham for four years, it was like coming home. Everyone should experience Socius, Burnham Market at least once in their life.
Amazing hoyse and loved the garden. The welcome hamper was suburb and .............summer came back!!
We have had a wonderful family holiday here at No.6, We have loved the house and the garden. It is our first trip to Norfolk and we've enjoyed exploring this beautiful part of the country, Recommendations, Holkham Beach, Holt, The Old Store in Snettisham for breakfast, The Orange Tree in Thornham, No.29 Burnham Market and Eric's Fish & Chips.
Had a lovely week in this very comfortable and stylish house.Garden such a bonus in the lovely sunny weather. Thanks Barefoot Retreats for the Welcome Hamper
Fantastic week in this lovely house, weather couldn't have been better. We have loved sitting in the garden and eating outside. Thanks so much for the welcome hamper.
Fantastic location for a short stay with our elderly dog, very well equipped property with everything ou need for a stay, very thought out by the owners. Enjoyed exploring the coast with some lovely dog friendly beach walks. Lovely welcome hamper and little extras like bathrobes etc. We hope to return!
A comfortable stay in a pleasant property. Not the best weather we have enjoyed in North Norfolk but still managed to get out and about.
Had a lovely week, good meals in Duck Inn, Gin Trap and Erics Fish and Chips. excellent walks around Thornham, Wells, Sandringham, Sheringham and Holt is good for shopping. The home is lovely and we will defiantly be returning!
Lovley cottage in a wonderful part of the world - we will be back!
Had a wonderful time here, Thank you! We come to Norfolk regularly and this is one of our favourite places to stay. Highly recommend Thornham deli, Erics, No.29 and Brancaster beach for the best dog walk! Thank you and see you soon!
We have just arrived this afternoon, we were welcomed with a beautiful welcome basket. This place is very beautiful i feel at home and very cosy. The family and I are loving the wee nook upstairs, with the whole variety of games, movies and books. The garden is very nice for the two dogs, we love it!!
What a fabulous week we've had at Number 6! A beautiful property with everything we could have wished for. Amazing location, fabulous beaches and memories of our first trip to Norfolk to last a lifetime!
A wonderful stay in this very comfortable house. Lots of places to visit, charming villages and teashops. The Duck Inn at Stanhoe serves spectacular food and is defiantly worth a visit if you are wanting a special meal, with friendly staff and great service. Prompt service from Barefoot Retreats if you have any queries!
Had a good stay, well furnished and comfortable. Ideally located for west Norfolk, including Ken Hill, Snettisham, Brancaster, Wells. Under floor heating was great, given the snow and high winds during our stay. Barefoot responded quickly an efficiently to resolve a couple, issues we encountered. Good service as always.
Thank you for allowing us to use your lovely holiday home, very quiet and peaceful place. Had good meals at The Hero and The Orange Tree. The RSPB at Holme is definitely worth a visit, set in behind the beach it is a bit difficult to find, but well worth looking for it!!
We had a really lovely break despite of the worst weather conditions. The house really fitted and very well equipped as well. Would love to repeat the stay during warmer weather as well.
Amazing property with everything you could ever wish for. The welcome basket was full of wonderful goodies, great location to explore this part of Norfolk. Thank you Barefoot Retreats for a great week. x
'Great cottage, well equipped and comfortable. Beautiful garden too. Regular visitors to Norfolk so have lots of recommendations: Beaches - Brancaster is great for dogs and seeing the seals. Holkham is again great for dogs. Food - Socius in Burnham Market is amazing! Need to book in advance. Tapas style English modern dining (favourite restaurant!) The Orange Tree in Thornham. Thornham Deli is great for breakfast/brunch/lunch. The Gin Trap Inn in Ringstead and also The Ostrich Inn in South Creake. Takeaways - Eric's pizza and fish & chips.
