Situated in open countryside, this detached barn is tucked away at the end of a private drive and surrounded by an enclosed lawned garden. Comfortably furnished it offers open-plan accommodation with a fitted farmhouse-style kitchen, and has two separate staircases (one either end of the house) giving access to the first floor. An indoor heated swimming pool further enhances the appeal of this property, where there is also a seating area with French doors leading to the garden. The pool is open all day, every day, accessed internally and is for the exclusive use of guests.
Centrally located in rural Norfolk, the property is well-placed for exploring both the coastline and Norfolk Broads (25miles). The North Norfolk coastline offers excellent sandy beaches, RSPB nature and bird reserves and a scenic coastal path for good walking. Daily boat hire is available at Wroxham, the ‘capital’ of the Broads, where there is also a fine choice of waterside cafes and inns in which to pause and enjoy some light refreshment.
Theatre, shops, inns and further cafes are to be found at the medieval town of Kings Lynn, 16miles away, and the beautiful city of Norwich (18miles) additionally has a castle and museum. Also worth a visit is Colman’s Mustard Museum where many varieties that are not generally available are sold here while the countless yellow fields which surround Norwich are tell-tale signs that the mustard trade is still thriving today.
The market towns of Swaffham (5 minutes), East Dereham (15 minutes) and Fakenham (30 minutes) are close by, whilst Thetford Forest Park (15miles) covers several thousand acres with marked forest walks, wildlife hides and cycle trails. Nearby places of interest include Oxburgh Hall, the Royal Sandringham Estate, and Castle Acre Priory and castle ruins. Fly fishing and coarse fishing at Narborough trout and coarse fishing lakes, 10miles, with golf, walking and cycling locally. Shop, pub, restaurant 3/4 mile.
