“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 2 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We have just got back from a 2 night stay at the retreat as a family of 4 with our friends too. The accommodation was lovely and comfortable, our children absoloutely loved it here too they loved interacting with the farm animals as well as help Amanda and Andy feed them, the biggest highlight was helping to bottle feed the two orphaned lambs on site. We had a fantastic mini break and will definitely be staying here again on our next visit to Norfolk! Young and old would fall in love with the surroundings, animals and the welcome amanda and Andy had given us on our stay. Many thanks the juggins and evans family! X

“A Wonderful Holiday in a Fantastic Holiday Home in a Great Location”
Reviewed 8 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We had an outstanding holiday in The Retreat. A girls week away with a mix of ages from 82 to 12 years and we all had a wonderful time. The youngest loved the Emu's and Andy was so kind as to let her into their enclosure with him and just spent time with us every day allowing us to cuddle the rabbits and visit the new baby lamb. My mother at 82 went for walks with us through the fields to the lake and really enjoyed the location and accommodation which for someone of her age finding a place suitable for her is very hard to find. The accommodation was really clean and like a home away from home with everything that you would want. We visited Langham Glass, Cromer, Hunstanton, Norwich and The Broads all within an easy drive away and for Norwich just a 15min drive to the park and ride into Norwich. So if you're looking for a nice, clean, friendly place to stay within easy reach of the coast and walks from your door then you'll be hard pushed to find something better then Riverside Farm.

Thanks again Amanda and Andy.

“Very comfortable converted barn with disabled facilities”
Reviewed 6 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Have just spent a week in The Retreat with my husband and both our disabled parents. The owners Amanda & Andy were most hospitable & could not do enough for you. They also have chickens ducks goats rabbits etc which they allow any children staying, to feed. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there which made a very good base for travelling round Norfolk. Would highly recommend this property and hope to return with our grandchildren.
