The largest of the three barns and perhaps the most dramatic conversion, this spacious accommodation provides a central living area with two ground-floor bedrooms on one side and an extensive galleried bedroom,sitting area and new shower room above.

There is a rear door from the sitting room leading directly into an enclosed garden overlooking farmland, which is secluded from the other two barns and can also be accessed from the car parking area. This is an ideal walking location, the footpath close by passes a traditional country pub and leads onto miles of sandy beaches. The famous Norfolk Broads are accessible just minutes away at Horsey Mere and day boats are available from several staithes in the surrounding villages.

East Anglia

The ancient kingdom of East Anglia has preserved much of its unspoilt character, rural landscape, architecture and traditions with attractions ranging from the University city of Cambridge and the Cathedral city of Ely, to glorious, often deserted, sandy beaches, lots of seaside fun, outdoor pursuits and the unspoilt waterways of The Broads. National Trust places in East Anglia are equally varied, ranging from the magnificent Blickling Hall in Norfolk, the impressive rotunda at Ickworth, near Bury St. Edmunds, the elegant Anglesey Abbey, to the dramatic coastline at Dunwich Heath, with its neighbouring RSPB sanctuary and the Anglo-Saxon royal burial site at Sutton Hoo.

The Norfolk Broads are what family holidays are really made of! Exploring by land or water or a combination of both, there?s a multitude of ways to discover and enjoy this area, including sailing, motor boating, canoeing, fishing, birdwatching, walking and cycling. There is much to inspire and delight those who visit the Broads. Not only are the famous waterways something to marvel at but the surrounding landscape is full of wonderful surprises. The beautiful countryside is home to many charming towns and small villages with traditionally thatched cottages, quaint village greens and stunning churches with histories that are as fascinating as the architecture. This area is rich in wildlife and there is no better place to find it than at Horsey.

    Lovely location close to the beaches

    We love this cottage and are always happy to be there. We thought the new shower/loo upstairs a great improvement (even though it is necessarily cramped!). Appreciated the champagne left for New Year - thank you! A couple of minor points - the dining table and chairs are looking somewhat dated and could perhaps be replaced, and secondly would it be possible to provide more light in the seating area so it is easier to read in comfort (a table light between the two armchairs upstairs would be welcome too). Lovely location close to the beaches, next to the pub, great walks from the door, lovely barn conversion makes this place special to us.

    What a wonderful few days.

    What a wonderful few days. Lovely walks and watching seals and pups play, fantastic pub next door. Cottage so clean and well equipped, certain that we will be coming back.

    Loved the seals

    Had a wonderful time together in Barns 2 and 3 which were so well equipped. Loved the seals and walks in every direction.

    We really enjoyed our stay

    We really enjoyed our stay. It was well worth paying a little extra to get the larger cottage, much lighter, with direct access to the garden. It is very peaceful, but there is a lot to do within walking distance, such as the pub, two cafes, the beach, the seals, the windpump, boat trips etc etc. Watch you heads on the beams on the way to the gallery bedroom!
