A lovely well equipped property.


A beautiful home in a peaceful location. So many lovely touches to the decor! A perfect spot to enjoy some mother-daughter time and the Hunstanton tennis week. We loved the Hoste Arms in Burnham Market for dinner and the White Horse in Brancaster


A little gem! The cottage was everything, super in every way! The staff at Barefoot Retreats could not have been more helpful! Thank you and we will be back!

Usha and Anthony

Accomodation had everything we needed - we'll be back!

The Martins

We have really enjoyed our first Barefoot Retreats holiday. The Lookout is a lovely place and we would defiantly return. Everything is very high standard and well equipped
