Delightful and stylish barn conversion in a traditional Broadland village, just 200 yards from the shop/post office and local pub. Perfectly located for enjoying the local sandy beaches, nature reserves, seal ( we are volunteer wardens at Horsey) and bird watching ( several RSPB reserves nearby), photography and painting ( we do both), cycling and walking.
This classic barn conversion is set in a charming old Norfolk village and is built of traditional flint and brick materials with a pan-tile roof. Tastefully converted to an East Anglian architect's design, it provides a comfortable , relaxing and quiet setting in which to relax in the country.
Dogs are particularly welcome and there are a full range of local walks ( despite us being in Catfield).

Interação com os hóspedes
We are a friendly couple and have travelled ourselves a lot. However, if you want to be left alone , we oblige, but you can always ask us any questions ( we live in the house on site/across the drive).
WIFI in the barn but a poorish area re. speeds etc. We live in a working farming community that provides local employment to a range of people as well.
We have a local village shop, a nearby market town with a range of shops and a supermarket, and an excellent pub in the village.
One of our star local attractions is the seal colony at Horsey Gap where we are volunteer Seal Wardens- 1400+ pups born locally this season (2016-17)!
We have a female working Collie dog called 'Bailey' and two mini Shetland ponies (father and son) and a country garden ( accessible to guests after discussion with us please)
No Smoking please
Pets to be kept under your control at all times please
Parking for your vehicle in the shared drive, ideally behind Bay Tree Cottage.
Anne (a retired teacher), my wife, and I ( a retired children's social worker) live in a small village in beautiful rural Norfolk.Our two adult children, Sam(uel) and Nell live in Canada and Scotland , respectively. We garden organically and enjoy travelling to France (particularly the Alps) whenever possible. Both Anne and I enjoy playing tennis and cycling, and spend time volunteering with the local seal wardening team and Norfolk Green Party. Having lived here for 30+ years, we know the area very well and enjoy sharing it with our visitors of all ages.
