These well-appointed adjoining barns each enjoy privacy, their own enclosed garden with seating furniture and private parking. The holiday properties are situated in a separate area of the owner’s grounds, which also has a small, members only, Registered Caravan Club site for five caravans, on the properties meadow.

Close by is Hickling Broad, with a nature reserve that links to the Norfolk Broad’s unique topography of reed-lined waterways, famous for their good coarse fishing, boating and rich variety of wildlife, especially waterfowl.

Also 3 miles drive away, are the glorious sandy beaches of Sea Palling and Waxham, often visited by seals. Visit Wroxham (11 miles), the capital of the Norfolk Broads, with its waterside cafés, restaurants, shops and daily river trips available.

Quiet country lanes and trails are great for relaxed cycling and walking.
