We’re located just outside the pretty North Norfolk village of Great Massingham and surrounded by tranquil countryside, offering lots of great dog walking in our own fully enclosed paddock or on the network of pathways around us. Guests walking to nearby Peddars Way National Trail will pass by our resident alpacas en route to the the local village with its award winning pub, shop and tearoom.

The lounge has 3 large sofas to comfortably seat up to 7 guests, a wood-burner, Smart TV and DVD player.

Home from home

By Mark B on 07-May-2024

Our second trip in 7 months to The Dairy at West Heath Barn which for us is a very warm and welcoming "home from home." I have been holidaying in Norfolk for as long as I can remember (50+ years) and find West Heath Barn to be the perfect location to really get away from it all. An idyllic setting, quiet and peaceful with plenty of walks and open countryside quite literally on your doorstep. Gill and David couldn't be better hosts, always happy to help should you need anything , and they keep both the accommodation and the whole site immaculate. The Dairy is plenty big enough for two couples with the option of a third ensuite bedroom should you need more space. West heath Barns are very well appointed, with everything you could possibly need we often eat in which is easy to do as everything you could need in the kitchen is there already. West Heath Barn is very dog friendly with an ideal large "dog run" securely fenced right next to the living accommodation which is ideal for late night leg stretches. The owners dog is always happy to keep any other visiting dogs company should they so wish! If you have any special requests Gill and David are always happy to help wherever possible but its unlikely you will need to ask for anything, most likely its already in a cupboard somewhere! Great Massingham is an ideal location for those not wanting to be "on the coast" , it offers a very peaceful alternative but is only a half hours drive through beautiful Norfolk countryside should you wish to visit. Massingham is well served with a decent pub, village shop (well stocked) and a small cafe with Fakenham , Swafham & Kings Lynn only a twenty minute drive if you need larger shops. All in all a great place to stay to get away from it all, we will be back in the autumn.

The perfect relaxing dog-friendly getaway with lovely hosts

By Helen C on 06-Nov-2023

We just had the loveliest weekend away at The Dairy cottage in West Heath Barn - the property was really spacious but warm and cosy and everything was immaculately clean and finished to a very high standard. Beds were comfy and every detail was thought of. It really exceeded our expectations. Even had a cake waiting for us! The little paddock out the front was great for our greyhounds to have a safe runaround. A lovely bonus was seeing the 4 cute alpacas which the hosts kindly spent time for us to experience feeding and taking them for a little walk. My 10 year old daughter particularly enjoyed this exciting experience. The hosts were really friendly and helpful, and gave us some great recommendations of things to do and places to eat which were all fab. We drove up to the huge open beaches and there is a lot of stunning nature around, very relaxing area. 100% recommend!

Fantastic Family Stay

By Donna S on 01-May-2023

We had a fantastic time staying at the Dairy Barn during the Easter holidays. The barn was super clean. It was very well equipped too. Nothing was too much trouble for Gill & and Dave, and the Alpacas were very friendly. Perfect get away for us, a family of 4 (children aged 9 & 7 years )....plenty of fantastic days out within easy reach, including Holkham, Wells, Brancaster, Sandringham & Bircham's windmill. Thank you.
