We are proud to have been invited way back in about 2007 to be included in Alastair Sawday’s ‘Special Escapes’ website and at present have two separate entries there, one for Tom’s Barn and a second for Douglas’s Barn.

We spent one night at The Windmill at Cley which we knew well already and the second at Burgh Parva Hall in Melton Constable which we didn’t know before but would happily return to.

It has been really hot here as it has in most parts of the country. We are getting ready for Open Gardens next Sunday, 25 June 2017. The rose above the stone barn has prolific blooms that we are hoping will still be there at the end of the week. Lots of hot air balloons […]
