The middle of the three barns, this cottage has an open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room area and above this is a small galleried sitting or reading room/bedroom. These Barns have each retained masses of character, with beams and pine flooring throughout. No. 2 provides comfortable holiday accommodation for a family or just a couple searching for a peaceful coastal break. There is a café and also a traditional country pub within a short distance and the magnificent beaches are just a ten minute walk along the adjacent footpath. Experience a slower pace of Norfolk life and see wildlife in close proximity, exploring an area which remains largely unpopulated. Free entry to Horsey Windpump during normal opening hours.

Things to see and do nearby

East Anglia, Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire

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 are 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.

    Fabulous stay and great team on site who phoned us to tell us we had left some stuff behind!!! We couldn't quite work out if there was wifi or not but that didn't affect our stay at all. It was wonderful! The wonderful location a short and fabulous walk from Horsey beach with all the seals and the birdlife was FANTASTIC! We managed to abandon our car at the house and explore the whole area on foot for 3 days... bliss!
