  • We recently stayed at Old Church Barn with our son and two dogs. The barn is very well equipped and positioned ideally for long walks on the beach and dunes, and access to the Norfolk coast. The walk from the barn to the beach takes around 15-20 minutes, depending on how energetic you feel, and has the benefit of being mainly via paths where motorised vehicles aren’t allowed. The area has a surplus of good dog friendly pubs with large beer gardens. As we were lucky to have a week of sunny dry weather, we frequented several to take advantage of the local food and cider. We can recommend the Fisherman’s Return in Winterton, the Dun Cow in Salthouse, and the Nelson’s Head in Horsey.

    We would certainly return for a further visit in the future.

  • After finding a channel on You Tube purely by mistake during last years first UK Lockdown ''April 2020'' - I then discovered so many nice areas in Norfolk and made a promise when things improved Id visit as many as possible, had a good look online for accommodation that would hopefully suit myself my daughter and her laid back cool dog Kylo, luckily we found Old Church Barn and it filled every requirement and then some, from the second we arrived we just knew it was a perfect choice, the cottage was spotless and very spacious and the private garden area was perfect for us.
    I was up every morning and out a nice walk with Kylo just taking in some of the local paths and Roads, Kylo loved the place and both me and my daughter just didn't want to leave.
    We stayed for a week and done a lot of walking but we also travelled to places like Hemsby and Sheringham along with Cromer & Gorleston. Winterton is such a lovely place and just so peaceful, if possible Id highly recommend a visit and can verify Old Church Barn really is a hidden gem.
    We will most definitely be back and hopefully this time for a longer stay.
    A massive thanks for allowing us into such a beautiful home and I hope any visitors show the place the respect it fully deserves.

  • An amazing stay at this barn. Everything is first class, you would not know it is dog friendly. Everything is spotless and very well maintained. The barn has everything that you could possibly need. it is situated about 15 mins from the village and 20 mins to the amazing beach. Our little dog loved paddling in the sea. So much space on the beach able to be off lead without the worry of being in someone else’s space. Whilst we were there we saw seals most days, pheasants in the fields and even a family of deer. Visited lots of villages, Horsey, Wroxham, Cromer to name but a few even hired a day boat on the broads. This was our first visit to Norfolk it will not be our last we will be back next year and will definitely return to Old Church Barn

  • Had a lovely week in Winterton staying at the beautiful Old Church Barn. Property is well equipped and the location is lovely and peaceful, with a pleasant 20 minute walk to the beach via the incredible dunes. With great amenities on your doorstep you can really relax without the need to travel if you didn’t want to. Thank you Sue for your well received welcome pack of goodies. We look forward to returning soon.

  • This was our 2nd year that we have stayed in this beautiful accommodation. The barn never disappoints, it is absolutely stunning. Set in tranquil surroundings yet close by to a fantastic beach, local walks and a fabulous pub. It is always great to see that the owners take pride in their property, it is well maintained and has everything you could possibly need. We had an amazing stay, so did our 14 year old Lab, who enjoyed lazing about in the front garden. We highly recommend this stunning barn and will definitely be back in the future.

  • Wonderful boutique barn with all the comforts of home, quiet setting and very private . The perfect place to bring a dog with enclosed garden and plenty of space. Absolutely loved our stay and Button the Norfolk Terrier couldn’t have asked for a more fitting place to call her temporary home for her very first visit to Norfolk!

  • Before arriving at the barn, Sue (owner) went above and beyond to help us. We had forgotten some essential medical equipment for our son. Sue went out and purchased the equipment and left it in the barn ready for our arrival. This reduced our anxiety & stress. A true act of kindness.
    The barn was like brand new, super clean & smelling lovely. Hard to tell that the barn has had dogs in it. The welcome surprise package was so thoughtful & much enjoyed. The barn is fitted out with really high quality equipment: shower, oven, wood burner. Both areas outside were peaceful & felt very private. A lovely location for walking to the beech & little town. The beech was breath taking with the seals in the sea.
    Would love to return at some point.

  • The Old Church Barn was an absolute delight. Four of us stayed for a week with a King Charles and a Greyhound and we all quickly felt at home. There are lovely walks from the door along a quiet back lane which takes you directly to the village and the beach. Winterton is a quiet village with a single pub that serves good food, a corner shop, a post office and a chippie and a wonderful stretch of sandy beach. Everything we needed was on the doorstep. Highly recommended for a relaxing break with lots of walkies.

  • A splendid barn conversion making for a fantastic holiday away from home - the attention to detail in the conversion is exceptional and the facilities are second to none. Old Church Barn made a perfect setting for exploring the delights of Norfolk and the Broads. We visited with 2 greyhounds who loved the underfloor heating and the enclosed gardens back and front were perfect for them. There is so much to see in Norfolk that we will be re-booking to visit the rest!

  • Beautiful setting. Old Church Barn is faultless. Walking routes varied between countryside & beach with added seals. Was still in partial lockdown but still plenty to do & see. Cottage was so well equipped wasn’t a problem not being able to eat out, local shop was a bit of a disappointment but plenty of farm shops about. On the whole fabulous place & would definitely recommend.

  • We've just come home from a glorious week stay at Old Church Barn. What a remarkable place, set in peaceful surroundings with great walks straight from your doorstep. The accommodation itself is outstanding, spotlessly clean and all the modern touches, the barn has been renovated to an extremely high standard. We actually didn't want to leave. The best place that we've stayed by far.

  • Had a wonderful few days here celebrating my 40th. Old Church Barn is decorated beautifully with a fantastic kitchen and high spec bathrooms. There is so much attention to detail, the photos do not do it justice! It's situated in a very peaceful lane with a few other converted barns, next door to the church ruins and a 10 min walk from Winterton village and it's gorgeous beach (where we got to see the seals!) The local pub Fishermans Return is definitely worth a visit as well. We would definitely return to Old Church barn!

  • Old Church Barn was the perfect setting for our Christmas holiday, with a very modern kitchen to cook a big Christmas lunch, a spacious dining room for our epic meal, and cosy living room for afternoon naps in front of the TV. There are plenty of walks in the area, and we were amazed by the seal colony at nearby Horsey Beach (a very gentle 4 mile walk away). We loved that a box of treats had been left for us, and truly appreciated the thoughtful Christmas decorations. Having look at dozens of properties to spend Christmas at, we definitely picked the right one - many thanks for making our vacation so special!

  • We are Winterton regulars, meeting up with family and seeing the seals at Christmas time. We have stayed in other Winterton cottages and in the various styles of property at Hermanus - Old Church Barn is one of the best and highly recommended. Atmospheric church ruins opposite were a lovely bonus. The barn has a superb kitchen but if venturing out there's great cake to be had at Poppy's tea rooms, breakfast at the Dunes cafe and carvery at Hermanus all recommended

  • We had an amazing few days away relaxing at the Old Church Barn. The barn itself is stunning and is tucked away within its own private space. Inside it has everything you need, there is a comfy king size bed, a hot spacious shower, an open plan fire and a modern kitchen you could cook a Sunday roast in. Winterton is just a short walk away along a beautiful country lane, in the opposite direction are the Broads all within walking distance. Can’t recommend this place enough.

  • Our family of four, along with our small dachsie, had a fantastic five-day stay in this stylish holiday home, which exceeded our expectations in every respect. Perfect for lazy days indoors, offering all mod cons, beautiful decorative touches, attention to detail and thoughtful touches - down to the torch for late-night digestive walks after dinners prepared in the perfectly equipped kitchen. An ideal location to get away from it all! We enjoyed the lovely walk to the beach and to the nearest pub, along with plenty of excursions detailed in the guest information booklet. We look forward to returning to this idyllic gem at some stage soon. One of our favourite holiday cottage experiences in the UK!

  • We had a really lovely stay at The Old Church Barn as it’s extremely comfortable and homely. The Barn is spotlessly clean and has everything you will need during your stay. Lovely walks on your doorstep and beautiful beaches at Winterton, Horsey and Waxham - all dog friendly. The welcome hamper was a lovely surprise and enjoyed by us all. Really recommend the barn to anyone who wants a quiet and relaxing holiday. Hope to return soon.

    — Donna, 19 Oct 2019
  • My sister and I had a wonderful week in this really lovely barn. We can thoroughly recommend it and the surrounding area. Our Dogs Rosie and Hetty also had a great time, lovely walks and plenty of wildlife to see.

  • We have just returned home from two weeks staying at old church barn. We have been hiring holiday homes for the last five years and by far this is the best property we have stayed in. So very comfortable, everything you want and so very quiet. We had never been to Norfolk before but love the area. We will definitely be going back. ,

  • We have just come back from the most amazing 2 week stay at Old Church Barn. The house was perfection! Great location, beautifully decorated, homely and had everything we needed to make our 2 week stay easy and enjoyable. Perfect location - Winterton-on-Sea is a lovely little village. Highly recommend the pub and Poppy’s tea rooms attached to the Post Office! The beach is beautiful and we even managed to see a baby seal (which we kept well away from!) one day. I would highly recommend Old Church Barn and Winterton Cottages generally. Thanks for making our first trip so memorable!

    — Natalie Fanning, 25 Aug 2019
  • We loved Old Church Barn. It is very nicely decorated and very comfortable. Unfortunately we chose a very wet few days but still enjoyed our stay. Winterton-on-Sea is such a lovely place. Would love to stay there again soon.

    — Frances Medhurst, 16 Jun 2019
  • We had such a lovely stay over the Easter Bank holiday weekend, the house was in perfect condition and in a very convenient location, just a 15 minute walk to the beach and into the local town. Would definitely stay again.

    — Lydia walter , 28 Apr 2019
  • We had a fabulous stay in this beautiful cottage. Spotlessly clean, comfortable and very well equipped, including a lovely welcome hamper containing prosecco, crisps & cookies which didn’t last long!😋 Great walks straight from the door; the walk to Horsey to see the seals followed by a visit to the Nelson’s Head was a highlight, even though we stayed so long we had to walk back in the dark! We loved it here, so nice to have such a lovely place that welcomes dogs & perfect for visiting our son who is at UEA in Norwich. We will definitely return.
