This excellent barn conversion provides spacious, light and airy accommodation with lots of character. At its heart is a large sitting room with a double height beamed ceiling and multi fuel stove, the perfect place to congregate after a day exploring Norfolk. Relax over alfresco meals in the enclosed walled garden while enjoying views across the water meadows that attract local wildlife such as deer, owls and hares.
With the 500 acre Blickling estate to explore you will be able to park the car and forget about it for a few days. The barn is on a quiet country lane which follows the meandering River Bure along the edge of the estate which offers numerous walking and cycling trails, yours to explore at any time of day. A pleasant half an hour's walk past the Bluebell woods and the lake will bring you to the fine Jacobean, Blickling Hall and its neighbouring country pub. During the fishing season you are welcome to stop and fish on the lake.
If you want to explore further afield and are feeling energetic, Norfolk’s long distance path, the Weaver's Way, passes close to the barn. Alternatively the excellent beaches of the Norfolk coast and popular coastal towns of Cromer and Sheringham are a 20 minute drive. If you are looking for other ways to entertain your family during your stay we run events and activities at many of our Norfolk properties throughout the year.

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.
