About Sarah van Poortvliet
Kings Beck Barn is owned by a family farm & is managed by me (Sarah), farmer's wife & mother of two. I take great pride in the barn & happily bake a homemade cake for the guests as well as providing fresh flowers, tea & coffee (with 1/2 a pint of milk) & a bottle of wine chilling in the fridge.
Sarah van Poortvliet purchased this Barn in 1949
Why Sarah van Poortvliet chose Norwich
Kings Beck Barn is owned by the family farming business and is situated on the outskirts of the working farm. With the changes in agriculture the farm was no longer used for storing farm machinery or livestock. In 2010 the barn was renovated into a beautiful holiday home with stunning views across the Norfolk countryside. Although set in a rural location, the barn is only 3 miles from the traditional market town of Aylsham (and the National trust property Blickling Hall) and is only 8 miles from the sandy beaches of the North Norfolk coast.
What makes this Barn unique
There is a large enclosed garden which backs onto arable land and lots of private walks which lead from the back door. Private hot tub available & table tennis table for your entertainment. Up to 2 well behaved dogs are permitted.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Great party house
There was nothing that we could fault. We were allowed in much early than stated and everything was brilliant - very clean - huge rooms and fully kitted out kitchen for plenty of people. The hot tub was a great success. It was a great house for the 3 generations which all thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Thank you for making it so easy.
Thank you Dawn for your lovely review. We are delighted that all three generations thoroughly enjoyed their stay and you enjoyed the hot tub! We hope we can welcome you back again soon. Sarah
Amazing house, beautiful location. Will definitely be back!
Thank you Paige for your lovely review. We would love to welcome you back to Kings Beck Barn.
Excellent! Beautifully appointed, great attention to making it truly home from home without clutter!
Loads of space for our large family group plus two dogs and a crawlling baby! Sarah was so helpful, answering all corespondent emails and calls so promptly. The barn was much better than it's description and the photos don't do it justice, understated and extremely well appointed, beautiful bedding, attention to detail from kitchen utensils to appliances, nothing skimped to make do, giving an air of luxury to every room, you can't help but feel truly comfortable as soon as you walk in the door!
Thank you Carmel for your lovely review. It really does mean so much to us when we read such lovely reviews about Kings Beck Barn. We are delighted the barn worked so well for your family gathering and hope that someday we can welcome you back again. Thanks again, Sarah.
