The
Experience

A lovely old barn! Plenty of space for two to sleep, up the oak stairs on the mezzanine gallery; fine for up to four more, on two big sofabeds below. There’s a peaceful atmosphere to the whole place and the rugged brick and flint walls, exposed beams and vaulted ceiling create a slightly ecclesiastical feel. It doesn’t feel over-converted but it does feel comfortable: old-fashioned radiators belt out the heat, there’s friendly furniture and good rugs on wooden floors, and curtains or blinds at all windows – to encourage long lie-ins. The kitchen and downstairs shower room are neatly to the point and there’s a sensible drying room. And out of the south-facing French windows is a really lovely view, of the Nar river valley and fields beyond. You’ve the run of a pretty, private garden (with herbs for the pot) and are on the edge of the very attractive village of Castle Acre. Peddars Way runs by, along Roman lines, and you’re not far from the coast. There’s a piano, books and jigsaws for evenings in; your kind hosts can advise on all things local; and you can bring a horse to stay in the small field with shelter.

Reviews

We had a brilliant stay in The Barn..warm and cosy but atmospheric and a beautiful conversion of a really lovely old building! We took the 2 dogs who enjoyed wonderful walks locally including round the Priory. So many places to walk and explore and we left a number undone so will definitely be going back. It was great to be able to come and go as we pleased but our hosts were very obliging and helpful with all our questions. The little garden was perfect for the dogs to go out even though the weather was against us. Excellent!
