Heron Barn Cottage

What better than to stroll along the river bank, enjoy a day at the beach, or just curl up in front of the cosy wood burner.
This stunningly presented semi-detached holiday barn makes the perfect location for a family break away or a couple’s retreat. Oozing with character and boasting riverside and countryside walks from the door, this property is in an idyllic location to get away from it all and relax with your loved ones. The living area boasts a fresh, roomy, contemporary living space with a vaulted ceiling and wooden floor, and has been furnished with elegant décor. At the end of a busy day you can gather around the wood burner to relax and unwind. The farmhouse kitchen/dining room is a great place to cook and dine. The property boasts a ground floor kingsize bedroom and stairs leading off the living room to the bathroom with shower over bath, while the second bedroom has zip and link twin beds, that can be made to form a super kingsize bed.
If you can break away from this beautiful property, why not head for a day out, the property has the ideal location for exploring the Norfolk Broads and the North Norfolk Coastline.
Wroxham, 6 miles, known as the ’Capital of the Broads’ is usually the first port of call. 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 flora and fauna. Keep your eyes peeled for otters, kingfishers or the elusive bittern (one of the rarest species of birds in the UK). If you’d rather stay a little closer to home, the water meadow (with grazing cattle in summer), provides an ideal backdrop for riverside walks, fishing and canoeing.
The Norfolk coastline has a wealth of sandy beaches, RSPB nature and bird reserves, coastal paths and the traditional seaside towns of Cromer, 15 miles, and Sheringham, 19 miles, offer an array of activities for all ages.
Mundesley, 12 miles, Sea Palling, 13 miles and Horsey, 17 miles, offer excellent wide sandy beaches. Fishing is available (in season and dependent on water levels) from the owner’s own riverbank and good walking and cycling can be found from the door. Nearby is 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. National Trust properties in the vicinity include Blickling Hall, Felbrigg Hall, Sheringham Park and Horsey Windpump. Make sure you visit Horsey Beach between December and February for your chance to spot hundreds of grey seals and pups along the shore. Beach 12 miles. The village of Buxton has a pub, shop and a fish and chip shop 1¼ miles
