At Christmas and New

Mill Farm Eco Barn is the perfect place for a family celebration

Year we decorate the barns, including a tree in the Eco Barn. Being organised often reduces the stress so here are our top tips to organising a great celebration:

The best local food around Mill Farm Eco Barn, Norfolk

Chapmans Butchers, in Martham is a real gem. They do fabulous local venison and outdoor reared pork from Suffolk and BBQ packs. For Christmas, order your free range Turkey here, along with ''Pigs in Blankets and Chipolatas'. They are family friends so be sure to tell them you are staying with us: 01493 740209

Dabs n crabs, Fishmongers is just down the coast in Scratby. Not open on Mondays. They have loads of fresh fish and you can even go out for a day’s sea fishing with the owner. They encourage you to collect the fish in Tupperware to avoid plastic pollution too.  01493731305

The Tacons,  in Rollesby, is my go to place for fresh local veg. They also sell cakes, dairy products and Norfolk charcuterie. They are open pretty much all day, every day.

The Flower Gallery, Martham. A lovely helpful florist. They will deliver for you in advance of your arrival, just let us know and we can sort this for you.

Blakes Bakes, Artisan baker, Andrew, makes your arrival cake. You can always contact him directly if you’d like to order any more cakes during your stay – or to take home. 07748 664739

The Ingham Swan is a favorite place to eat - photo credit Fiona Burrage

For meals out the Ingham Swan is now open the perfect restaurant for a group of adults wanting a sophisticated food experience – I am planning to go there for my birthday later this year (it’s the kind of place I go to once a year as a real treat. I wouldn’t dream of taking my kids). You can get a taxi there and back but book both table and cab in advance. Return before 11 for a cheaper fare. If you are here over the weekend and want to have Sunday lunch out I’d go for the Boathouse in Ormesby. It does a quality carvery, good veggie options and there is a children’s playground.

Have a pamper whilst on holiday at Mill Farm Eco Barn

Head massage

Organise a pamper session at the barn

I have just teamed up with ‘My blissful retreat’  a visiting spa company offering luxurious treatments in the comfort of your holiday home. Our customers have a 10% discount on any treatments. You can book this before your holiday or after you land with us.

Day trips from the barn.

As well as a trip to the beach and to see the seals at Horsey I’d always recommend hiring a boat to visit the Broads National Park from our neighbouring village at Martham. Try one of the electric boats from Martham Ferry Boat Yard or if you are feeling even more adventurous you can go on a kayak tour with Norfolk’s Outdoor Adventure, you’ll also get 10% if you stay with us.

If you need any more advice let me know and I will be more than happy to help if I can. Our 4 bedroom Eco Barn is super family friendly and with a downstairs wetroom and living space all on one level it means that all the family can join in the celebrations. Grandma and Grandad can always rent the Hay Barn next door for a bit of peace and quiet. If you'd like us to host your special occasion you can check our availability here.
