"Our very first visit to Norfolk and we have loved it! Milestone Barn has been pefect, so much attention to detail. The weather was amazing - blue skies and sunshine. Thank you, and for all you do supporting Many Tears"
Rhiannydd, Roger and Jess (our MTAR darling)
"Wow 10/10! On entering the barn for the first time we were both delighted. Warm, comfortable and very well finished. We were so sad to leave. Beautiful barn in perfect position for exploring. Visited lots of beaches, with our Irish Setters. 100 seals at Horsey point – a sight not to miss. Thank you so much Pat and Richard for a great holiday house."
Carl, Karen, Breagh and Lucas

Lovingly restored in 2011 with great attention to detail, our barn is on the Paston Way footpath in a designated Quiet Lane and only a mile from the sea. Wildlife may be seen in the meadow from the window and the cheeky Sparrows and Long tailed tits seem to escape the Sparrow Hawk, as do the fat Wood Pigeons!
10% of bookings go to Many Tears rescue in South Wales and there is no charge for dogs and a very flexible approach to numbers.

Sandstone flooring (with underfloor heating) and no stairs make Milestone barn very suitable for children, dogs and those with limited mobility.
The air source heat pump for under floor heating and bio disc waste system may be of interest to those wishing for a more environmentally sensitive holiday.
The barn is completely open plan with glass in the upper truss of the wall that makes the bedrooms so you have full height all through and can see all of the roof.
Sitting Room: Comfy leather seating with throws available, book cases, flat screen TV/DVD (Free view) and Humax for recording your favourite programme. Original pictures and prints. Roman blinds for full enjoyment of the view.
Dining Room: Open plan with the kitchen and seating area. Antique painted dresser with full set of blue and white porcelain (there is an everyday set too), plank table with Farrow and Ball Cooking apple green painted legs and retro chairs, willow bench seat and dimmable lights.

Heating: Under floor from air source heat pump system complemented by wood burning stove. The under floor heating is sufficiently warm for all year. The wood burning stove is for those who love a fire. We provide one box of logs and our gardener will supply more at a very reasonable cost. Only seasoned hardwood may be used.
Outside: Enclosed stone paved and lawned garden with substantial outdoor furniture, parasol and galvanised bucket barbecue. A lovely place to spend an evening with the cheese and wine from our welcome pack. It is difficult to see when the swallows go to roost and the bats come out. It is a very safe space for dogs. Parking for 2 cars. Full disabled access. You might find the odd chicken visitor in the garden from the field at the back from time to time.
The two nearest pubs with food are The Vernon Arms, 1.5 miles at Southrepps. (it is listed in Norfolk doggie pubs) and The Crown 1 mile at Trunch (CAMRA). The Ship Inn at Mundesley is really dog and people friendly and has a garden over looking the beach.
There is a pool and small leisure centre at Woodland Holiday Park at Trimingham (01263 579208) not too far from our barn.
The beaches around our cottage are sandy and mostly dog friendly and there are miles of footpaths to explore. Wells, Blakeney and Stiffkey are a short drive away and North Norfolk is a bird watchers paradise. Aylsham is a slow food town and has auctions on Mondays. Historic Norwich is a vibrant city with great shopping and food.
