About 2 Horsey BarnsEnjoy the tranquil atmosphere at this traditional, cosy and characterful barn conversion, with the beautiful Norfolk broads on the doorstep.
Soak up the atmosphere when you stay at this converted cottage, once part of a working farmyard. Inside the red brick exterior 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, 2 Horsey Barns sits next to 1 and 3 Horsey Barns, making up a traditional farmyard cattle court. Previously stalls and a feed room, it now sleeps up to six (there’s a restricted height mezzanine area available on request with folding beds suitable for two children) and has two bedrooms, a double and twin. The beamed open plan kitchen, dining and living area is a lovely sociable space to start the day’s adventures. There’s also a small sun trap courtyard area right outside the front door, great for eating al-fresco after a day spent exploring, sailing or walking or just relaxing.
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 tea 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.
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.
