We are Jill and Phil Wakley, we have lived at Cotenham Barn since May 2012, since then we have established our quality bed and breakfast rooms and converted some of the barns to provide a variety of holiday accommodation types, we very much hope you will find one to suit your needs. Cotenham Barn is set in three acres of Broadland countryside within the Norfolk Broads National Park. With well cared for gardens, woodland and a pond Cotenham Barn is a relaxing natural environment which feels close to nature. With a footpath leading across fields or country lanes to Ranworth it is the perfect place from which to explore or just relax – for singles, couples, families or groups. So, if you are looking for a traditional Norfolk B&B or holiday cottage then look no further….we look forward to welcoming you.
Bed and Breakfast:
The main house can accommodate up to eight – one double room plus an adjacent small double suitable for older child or children, these two rooms share an external bathroom. A large en-suite double or family room with a comfy double sofa bed if required. Have a look at our room pages to see more detail.
Bed and breakfast guests are treated to a varied menu choice including a traditional breakfast of thick bacon rashers and our own eggs, smoked salmon and kedgeree. We cater for vegetarian diets and can also cater for allergies/intolerances with a little notice. Our bread is home made, jams and marmalade are all home made and our fruit salad includes fruit from our own kitchen garden and hedgerows (when in season/available).
Guests can, by arrangement, make use of the house kitchen for making up packed lunches of even cooking meals (a small charge may be made).
Self contained holiday cottages.
Cotenham Garden Cottage, developed from part of the single storey barns, we completed this cottage in May 2016. It looks out onto the box hedged vegetable garden and is flanked by the green house which houses a grape vine as well as tomatoes and the usual salad vegetables. Fully accessible to wheelchair users.
Cotenham Long Barn, again developed from part of the single storey barns and completed in July 2018. This barn conversion can be rented as a two bedroom or one bedroom unit, so can be suitable for 2-6 people.
The Nook, currently under development and due to be completed Summer 2019. This en suite room is tucked away from the house and cottages, close to our pond and wood and footpath leading to Ranworth from the garden. Other than the occasional walker your only companions are likely to be Ducks, Moorhen, Rabbits, deer and of course our hens.
