Property details

The Dairy at West Heath Barn is a simply stunning conversion of a traditional Norfolk barn dating back to the 1850s. Positioned right on the Peddars Way, a famous Roman Road that goes right down to the North Norfolk coast, the barn is a perfect place if you are seeking a tranquil holiday retreat.

The conversion is of the highest quality and furnished to a very high standard. Walk into Great Massingham (approx three quarters of a mile) and you will find one of Norfolk’s prettiest villages with two large central ponds and a popular gastro pub, The Dabbling Duck. Dogs are very welcome at The Dairy and guests have access to the fully enclosed paddock for exercising their pets.

Walking from the barn is peaceful and traffic free. West Heath Barn is set in its own grounds of 4.5 acres, complete with resident Alpacas!

The accommodation is extremely flexible -The Dairy sleeps 4, plus 2 on a sofa bed, and guests also have the option to book the adjoining suite for an extra cost or The Cart Lodge, just across the courtyard which accommodates four, making it perfect for groups of couples, multiple families and multi generational holidays.

A one hour complimentary Alpacca walk is included for guests staying at The Dairy.

The Dairy holiday cottage location

Surrounding local area

Great Massingham is one of Norfolk's most attractive villages located approximately 40 miles west of Norwich and 13 miles to the east of King’s Lynn, having one of the most impressive greens in the county. Several large ponds dominate the village, some of which have their origins as the fish ponds for an 11th century Augustinian Abbey. In 2009 the village won a CPRE Community Open Spaces award and in both 2009 & 2010 an ‘EDP Pride in Norfolk’ award for villages with a population under 1000. The North Norfolk coast is a 20 minute drive away. The village has a thriving community with a shop and also pub called The Dabbling Duck that has an excellent restaurant.

Guest reviews

We had a great time at The Dairy. The house felt like a real "home from home" and was clean, comfortable and well-appointed. We enjoyed being able to bring our dogs, and the enclosed dog paddock made the stay very easy for both us and them. We were most impressed by the customer service before and during our stay - Gill and her husband were on hand when we needed them (and we particularly enjoyed the complimentary alpaca walk!).

The facilities were second to none and the welcome was excellent even down to the bowl of dog biscuits for the dog, Jeff, and a delicious Lemon Drizzle Cake for the humans.. Jeff adored the dog paddock outside the front door. The cottage itself was beautifully presented with all mod cons. The alpacas - Hemingway, Huxley, Oscar and Charley - were adorable and taking them for a walk was very interesting. Shopping was quite easy with a village shop within a mile and supermarkets within 20 minutes driving in all directions. We were a diverse family group with ages ranging from 72 down to 36 and there was plenty to do in the area. Gill and Dave, the owners, could not do enough for their guests. We all gave the Dairy a 5-star rating.

Clean and Spacious cottage close to a pretty village. The Dairy was a perfect location for exploring the North Norfolk coastline and surrounding villages. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and really spacious. Easy walk from the property into the village & the quaint local pub. Great communication from the owners. Such a bonus that the dogs are welcome with their own exercise area.

Gill and David gave us a very warm welcome to an exceptionally comfortable, well equipped cottage, situated in an idyllic location and ideally suited for dogs. Helping to feed the Alpacas was a great experience - such attractive, gentle creatures! We loved the secure dog exercise area and the walk beyond up the fields either to Great Massingham or onto The Peddars Way. The Dabbling Duck in Great Massingham served very good evening food as well as afternoon tea and cake and it was good to be able to eat in the bar with the dogs. Our stay was very relaxing and we will definitely be booking again as well as recommending to family and friends.

The Dairy is a lovely place to stay- the facilities and accommodation is superb. This is our second holiday there, and while sometimes going back is not a good idea we enjoyed our second holiday as much as the first. The weather was OK for March, we visited 3 NT places as well as Mundesley and Cromer. The Dabbling Duck in Great Massingham is a good place to eat- the meals and staff are excellent.
