This section of the page features an image gallery, so if you're using a screen reader you may wish to jump to the main content.

Set over two floors of this converted barn this cosy accommodation is the ideal location for a romantic holiday for two. You can sit outside the barns enjoying the peaceful setting while keeping an eye out for the resident barn owl or at night star gazing. The nearest sandy beach and the lovely seaside resort of Sheringham is just a pleasant twenty minute walk across the fields and cliff top golf course.

There are numerous trails for walking and cycling which lead from the doorstep through the neighbouring Sheringham Park estate which boasts fine mature woodlands, gardens and an annual spectacular show of rhododendrons and azaleas. The estate is home to Muntjac, Roe and Red Deer and attracts more than 100 species of birds each year so walks are sure to be eventful and are accessible to you at all times. It has a café and a small country hotel restaurant and bar if you wanted to stop for a well-deserved drink along the way.

This is an excellent base for exploring the beautiful North Norfolk coast with extensive beaches, seal watching trips from nearby Blakeney Quay and numerous pretty countryside villages and market towns to discover. We have several properties to visit within easy reach of Sheringham, many also offering activities and events throughout the year. For inspiration click on the ‘Nearby’ tab above.

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.

    I always love National Trust Cottages. They are a wonderful link with the past and really tastefully renovated and decorated in keeping with their particular style. Its good to feel that people have lived and loved in and around them in years/centuries gone by. They're warm and comfortable and wonderfully private in beautiful settings. So much better than staying in a hotel. Beautifully clean and comfortable. Perfect.
