About 1 Horsey Barns

Enjoy a slower pace of life at this rustic, cosy and characterful barn conversion, with the beautiful Norfolk broads on the doorstep.

Soak up the atmosphere when you stay at this cottage in the heart of life on the Broads. Inside the red brick exerior you'll find traces of its farming history, with vaulted ceilings, wooden beams and exposed flint walls. Beyond it, you'll love the walks across the water meadows, sand dunes and wide open spaces along the stunning Norfolk coast.

One of the three barns on site, 1 Horsey Barns sits next to 2 and 3 Horsey Barns, making up a traditional farmyard cattle court. Previously stalls and a feed room, it now sleeps three in two bedrooms, with a light and airy dining area and open plan sitting room, so it's perfect for small families or groups of friends exploring the coast and seal watching. There's a sun trap courtyard area right outside the front door, great for eating al-fresco after a day sailing or walking.

Walkers can explore the coastal trails all around, with more than 10 miles of soft sand beaches behind sand dunes 10 minutes' walk from the barn, and the team rooms and pub nearby are great for refuelling. If messing about on water is more your thing, then book a wildlife boat trip, head out kayaking or fishing on the Broads instead. Also- keep a look out for grey seals during breeding season where you can easily see 300 on the Horsey beaches, a sight you won't forget.

Whether you're looking for walks or beautifully calm beaches, the tranquil atmosphere of this genuinely unspoilt area of Norfolk will work its magic on you during your break. Take a trip to Horsey Windpump for the panoramic views, or head further afield to National Trust places Blickling Hall and Felbrigg Hall for more history. For a more bustling experience, head to the seaside town of Great Yarmouth, only half an hour away, with its mix of shops, restaurants, pubs and the Pleasure Beach and Sea Life Centre.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 Acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level through to 5 Acorns at the highest level. Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose, safe and clean. Running water and a WC are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities (details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage). Bedding, linen and towels are supplied (with a few exceptions, which is again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. Generally a 1 acorn cottage does not have wifi. Examples of a 1 acorn offer include Cartref, Wales and Rosedene, Worcestershire.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high sleeps to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 acorn cottages have wifi and, similar to a 1 Acorn cottage, the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic in their offer. All 2 (and higher) Acorn cottages supply bedding, linen and towels. Examples of a 2 acorn offer include Engine Cottage, Cornwall and High Hallgarth, Cumbria.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small sized kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage. Examples of a 3 acorn cottage include the Mustard Pot Cottage, Norfolk and Rose Cottage, Isle of Wight.

4 Acorn: these cottage have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally it is likely to have added comfort extras. The ratio of bathrooms to guests will be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers as opposed to over bath showers. Examples of a 4 Acorn offer include Portland House, Dorset and Stepper View, Cornwall.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage. This is the highest offer available. The furniture is of high standard, and has real comfort for modern living. Examples of a 5 Acorn cottage include The Old Rectory, South Wales and West Gate Lodge, Yorkshire.
