About 2 Horsey Barns

Enjoy 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.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet 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 are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

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 kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
