Seriously stylish, sink your toes into this fabulous holiday home by the sea with a definite wow factor. Unwind, relax, keep calm and dream on. There are plenty of facilities for the whole family to enjoy with two sitting rooms, beautiful interiors, beamed and vaulted ceilings, ground floor bedrooms and a master suite on the first floor with views over the marshes to the sea. A year-round retreat, curl up by the impressive crackling woodburner on cooler days and enjoy the garden under sea blue skies when the weather is warmer.
The spacious garden to the rear of the house is pretty irresistible too. Cook up a summer soireé on the gas barbeque to enjoy al fresco eating or take to the shade under the summer house roof with a good book and a glass of fizz. If you are staying in the Garden Room, fling open the French doors and be calmed by the fresh sea air wafting in. Perfect for families and friends holidaying together, two of the bedrooms can be made up as zip and link beds – so all party sizes are easily accommodated in this fantastic coastal hideout.
Blakeney itself is a treasure trove of wonderful things to do. Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the coastal path and quayside are just a few moments’ walk from the barn. Sailing is available locally and there is even a Powerboat School if you want to give it a go! There are plenty of good places to eat in the village, art galleries and craft shops and a good local store. A treat at any time of the year is a trip to see the seal colony at Blakeney Point and catching crabs on the quayside is a happy way for the youngsters to while away their time. There are some stunning beaches nearby at Wells-next-the-Sea and Holkham – vast sandy spaces set under huge blue skies, the sense of tranquility is palpable, both beaches have great local cafés so when the fun is done there is somewhere to relax before coming back to the barn.

Lovely house! A great week on the Norfolk Coast! Thank you! Pitcher Family - 2nd November 2020
A wonderful weekend away with family on what should have been our wedding weekend! A very lovely house in one of our favourite spots in Norfolk.Dr Hayley Dolan - 12th October 2020
We have enjoyed a lovely break here in a part of the country nobody in the party had visited before. We took advantage of the long coastal walks, the seafood and of course the pubs and bars! Marvellous location, a comfortable and beautiful house and weather that was kind! What more could you ask for! Sinclair family - 10th October 2020
We, (six adults, 1 infant & 1 dog) have had a fabulous time here. The house is great (layout, facilities, location, parking, safety, garden), it has everything. Spar (open all hours) plus seafood plus great coffee literally on the doorstep. Organisation was great as was the weather. Who needs France !!! Can't recommend this house enough, Great - 10/10. Management have made great efforts during the 'Covid times' to make us feel safe. to Mr Paul Cook - 16th September 2020
Fabulous house and area for family get togethers. Will be back!!! Mrs Margaret Hill - 10th September 2020
We love North Norfolk and this was a good place to stay with a convenient shop across the road, parking and easy access to the harbour. The house was very comfortable and suited Grandma, Grandad, Mum, Dad and 2 girls well. So much to see and do in the area and we were lucky to get two good beach days and an 'adventure' day at Holkham. Many Thanks Mr Keith Giffen - 22nd August 2020
Loved every minute of our stay. Superb cottage in superb location.Mrs Judy Sinclair - 17th March 2020
