We offer luxurious, self-catering, holidays in our single-storey barn set in a really peaceful rural location. We are in a beautiful, rural area of Norfolk, perfect for a quiet, get-away-from-it-all break but close enough to the shops if you want to do that as well! We welcome dogs too; no need to book them into kennels, bring them with you and enjoy the beaches and walks together.
Willow Tree Holidays
We provide human and doggy treats! For our human visitors there’s a luxury hamper full of local (within a 35 mile radius) produce.
And for the hounds, there are locally made dog biscuits, towels and toys, holiday dog-tags and lights for collars.

We have just spent a wonderful week in The Walnut. It has been brilliantly furnished to a high level of comfort and facilities. The views are amazing and location isn’t far from most attractions and Beaches. The owners are very welcoming. Definitely will return for another stay.

What a lovely place this is! We stayed in "The Peanut" this summer and had a wonderful time. Beautiful countryside, very peaceful. The Peanut was well kitted out, comfortable and cosy. Our hosts were lovely and helpful. We had a brilliant time! We will definitely look into coming over again and book the walnut. Thanks again folks for a lovely stay!

Sarah and Family
Literally we could not believe this beautiful holiday home was ‘dog friendly!’ It’s simply immaculate and stunning in the most tranquil setting, everything you could possibly need has been thought of by the lovely owners, who are on hand if needed but not intrusive in any way, perfect peace and quiet, we highly recommend.

A true Gem in the Norfolk countryside, we really couldn't have found a more wonderful peaceful retreat. Just beautiful. This was an incredible experience from time of booking to arriving back home following our holiday. The Walnut is superbly located in the most stunning scenic location.

Greeted by the lovely owners with a totally unexpected hamper of local produce. Great customer service, an amazing hot tub and a property that anyone would be proud to stay in. Will definitely return.

What a beautiful, peaceful place this is to stay. Stella and Paul are so welcoming and friendly - nothing was too much trouble, although we really didn’t need to trouble them because they had thought of everything! The self-contained courtyard was perfect for our two greyhounds - the ideal place for them to lay out and enjoy the fresh air and for Jill to stand up at the gate and ‘talk’ to Paul and Stella’s dogs when they were in the paddock. Both Jill and Dennis loved getting into the paddock. The perfect enclosed space for a bit of a blast! We humans were well catered for too. Everywhere was pristine, everything to make use of and finished to a wonderfully high standard, The Walnut was ideal for us two and our dogs, as well as for my elderly mum as everything is on one level. The hot tub was a real luxury that we made the most of - quite magical at night under the stars. So many thoughtful touches, including the welcome hamper, the fresh flowers, the handmade doggie treats - the perfect start to our stay. We loved it so much, can’t wait to go back.

I loved this place the minute I walked through the gate to the patio garden. The barn was clean, well equipped and beautifully appointed with a TV that my partner was thrilled with! The hot tub was fabulous and the peace and quiet with just the birds singing was glorious. Will definitely be back.

From the minute we arrived till we left a week later we were made to feel like friends instead of guests. Nothing is too much trouble. The cottage is an amazing standard and everything you can think of is provided for you and your dogs. I will definitely be going back.
Janine and Family
We stayed at the Walnut as a family of four with our two whippets. Being all on one level made it perfect for our young children and the enclosed courtyard meant that no dogs or children could escape!! The cottage was absolutely spotless - not a dog hair in sight, you wouldn’t have known that any furry friends had been there before. The owners (Stella and Paul) were so friendly, kind and thoughtful. It was my birthday when we were there and Stella helped to make it really special.
Dani and Family
We recently stayed at The Walnut. The owners were so welcoming and friendly. The cottage was amazing, so well equipped, really comfortable and such a lovely, peaceful location. It is really dog friendly and having the paddock was an added bonus. I would recommend any of my friends to go and have a holiday there as it was so relaxing and the hot tub is a great luxury.

The Walnut is perfect in every way. Tasteful décor and well equipped accommodation, lovely enclosed courtyard, hot tub and a safe enclosed paddock – nothing negative to say about this property, 10 out of 10.

We had a fantastic week at The Walnut – a beautiful converted barn with a hot tub. The barn is in a great location and is really well appointed with lots of little extras which add to your stay and both dogs and humans have everything needed for a relaxing break. Our dog settled in straightaway and was more than happy to curl on the sofas whilst we enjoyed the (extremely well maintained) hot tub – which was a great way to relax after walking and cycling around the area. The peace of just sitting and looking at the fields and wildlife whilst in the hot tub or on the outdoor sofas was just perfect. We celebrated our 30th Wedding Anniversary whilst there and were extremely touched by the personalised touches which Stella and Paul provided. Exceptional pub, The Star, with great good within walking distance. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we hope to return.

'Excellent cottage and well presented. We had a very relaxing week (apart from lots of dog walks!) Many thanks for the welcome pack. Look forward to returning. We hope you have a successful season ahead. Thanks and Best Wishes Kevin, Angela, Ned and Bungle.'

The Walnut is lovely; having only been there half an hour we had decided we needed to book another week! Excellent cottage, lovingly decorated and laid out with beautiful views across the fields and a hot tub to relax in. The owners were very welcoming and friendly. Can’t wait to visit again soon.
Jim, Vanessa, Archie and Pippa
Thank you so much Paul and Stella for such a warm welcome to your stunning and beautiful property. The Walnut has been finished to an extremely high standard with fabulous attention to detail. Everything about our stay has been perfect, even the weather! Our stay has been warm and cosy with the added luxury of the hot tub to enjoy, both during the sunny afternoons as well as under the clear night sky. Thank you too for the fabulous welcome goodies as well as the thoughtful extras in the dog basket. Very best wishes and hope to see you again in the future.

My friend and I and our four dogs (three Greyhounds and a Pointer) had a lovely stay at The Walnut. Right from the moment you drove through the gates, you could see The Walnut ahead of you and what a fab property it is. The owners, Stella and Paul, should be extremely proud, especially Paul who did the build. The booklet showing the transformation of an old farm building to The Walnut was very interesting. Paul even had USB power points added around the property and there are plenty of sockets (you can never have too many sockets). The beds and Egyptian cotton bedding were divine. The whole property had lovely touches of style and everything was high spec. Stella and Paul were lovely and nothing was too much trouble. I had requested a summer duvet and a fan and both were provided. The welcome hamper was scrummy and the dogs loved their biscuits. Our dogs relaxed the minute we put the supplied throws on the sofas. At one point we thought we would have to sit on the floor. If you want a beautiful property, in beautiful quiet surroundings, then The Walnut is for you.
