The Experience

This is a place to take big gulps of fresh air, where sheep graze and pheasants strut across the track that leads to a small collection of barns. Yours is cleverly private behind a fence and has wide doors from the open plan living area – throw them open to enjoy the summer, in winter underfloor heating will keep you cosy and warm.Pack up all your gear and head for beaches with the widest skies and the best crab sandwiches for lunch. It’s just 20 minutes to the family-friendly sandy beaches of Wells and Holkham, you can go crabbing or seal spotting at Blakeney. Long coastal walks are a dream for birdwatchers.Soak your weary limbs in the spa while children find a games room and maybe some new friends. Return to much comfort, a chatter while you cook or a barbecue out on the terrace with tranquil country views.

The neighbourhood

Barsham Barns is set in rural Norfolk countryside, a 15-minute drive from the coast along quiet local roads. It’s a 20-minute drive to the wide sandy beaches of Wells, Holkham and Hunstanton and a little further to Blakeney for seal watching and crabbing. The Barsham Arms serving good pub food is a five-minute drive away and it’s seven minutes to local shops and eateries in Little Walsingham. Coastal walks are nearby and Cley Nature Reserve has hides and expert birdwatching guides.

Local points of interest from Jenny Dale

  • Local chef available for either drop-off meals or in-house catering
  • The Victoria pub at Holkham is 15 minutes drive (also great beach walk)
  • Fresh produce available from fantastic farm shop less than 2 miles away in Little Walsingham
  • The coast from Hunstanton to Cley-next-the-Sea is a bird watchers' paradise
  • Our favourite sandy beach at Wells-next-the-Sea (complete with beach huts to rent) is 5 miles away
  • Head to Blakeney for a boat trip to see the seal colony then walk along the coastal path to Cley-next-the-Sea
