The Cowshed Cottage
2 bedrooms, sleeps 4
Perfect for a relaxing break whatever the season, this stunningly presented, detached, single-storey holiday barn offers that perfect location for a family break or a couple’s retreat.
This property occupies an idyllic and private position situated in the grounds of the owner’s home benefiting from good walks and cycle routes direct from the doorstep with access to the Marriotts Way. The lovely market town of Reepham, with The Dial House (boutique hotel restaurant), pub, cafés, antiques shops, butcher and supermarket situated around a historic market square is under a mile away.
Oozing with character glass bi-folding doors extending along the property flood the contemporary and spacious open plan living area with light and provide views across farmland beyond. After a busy day exploring, gather around the wood burner to relax and unwind. Each bedroom benefits from an en-suite bathroom which makes this property the perfect place for couples travelling together, providing everyone with their own private space. Traditional stable doors in both rooms open out onto the large enclosed south-facing courtyard.
The Cowshed enjoys a convenient location providing easy access to both the North Norfolk Coastline and the Norfolk Broads.
The Norfolk coastline has a wealth of sandy beaches, including Wells-next-the-Sea, Mundesley, Sea Palling and Horsey, and the traditional seaside towns of Cromer and Sheringham are both within an hour’s drive. You will also find RSPB nature reserves, bird reserves and coastal paths nearby. Guests visiting between the months of December and February, make sure you visit Horsey Beach for your chance to spot hundreds of grey seals and pups along the shore.
Wroxham is 17 miles away and is known as the ’Capital of the Broads’. Hiring a boat is arguably the best way to explore one of Britain’s finest wetlands or you can enjoy a river trip. Nature lovers are advised to bring binoculars, as the Norfolk Broads are home to a diverse range of fora and fauna. Keep your eyes peeled for otters, kingfishers or the elusive bittern (one of the rarest species of birds in the UK).
National Trust properties in the vicinity include Blickling Hall, Felbrigg Hall, Sheringham Park and Horsey Windpump. Nearby is the Bure Valley Railway Line, a nostalgic 18-mile round trip by steam on Norfolk’s longest narrow gauge railway, running through pretty countryside between the historic market towns of Aylsham and Wroxham, stopping at Buxton, Coltishall for on/off exploring by foot and Alby Crafts Museum. Norwich city is 15 miles away and has a cathedral and a 12th-century Norman castle.
Families with young children will enjoy trips to the Dinosaur Adventure Park, Pensthopre (nature reserve, indoor and outdoor adventure playgrounds) BeWILDerwood (tree top and woodland adventure park), and Holt Country Park with miles of trails to explore; seasonal activities held during school holidays like mini beast safaris, treasure hunts and guided ranger walks.
