About this Cottage

This wonderful detached barn conversion offers a substantial venue for large families or groups wishing to holiday together. Set in perfect tranquillity with its own enclosed garden, it neighbours the owner’s home and paddocks with horse and family pet pig. Centrally positioned to explore the delights of the Norfolk Broads, North Norfolk Coast, with miles of quiet lanes and woodland walks to be enjoyed from the doorstep. The house is full of charm and character, delightfully furnished and equipped to provide a warm welcome at any time of year. The barn boasts exposed beams, a spacious living room with wood-burning stove, and a farmhouse kitchen with a large dining table perfect for entertaining (catering services available – must be booked prior to arrival direct with the owner) and snooker table. Ground floor bedrooms and shower room make this a perfect choice for older or infirm guests wishing to avoid stairs.
