Pretty barn conversion property offering stylish accommodation for four guests, one of two properties at this idyllic location in the Norfolk village of Briston, just four miles from Holt.

Appletree Barn is truly a great property. It has been converted to the highest specifications, featuring solid oak flooring, quality bathroom fittings and a hand-made kitchen, complete with Aga cooker. This stylishly decorated barn offers a tasteful, relaxed style and great open-plan living downstairs for the whole family to get together. It provides a cosy bolthole for a family of four – although those in the twin room may need to mind their heads on the eaves! A property with a great homely feel.

The barn is 3 miles from the Georgian town of Holt, a popular destination for shopping and eating out with restaurants, tea rooms and public houses. The local pub and shop are also within very close proximity – both within half a mile.

 Just a few miles further afield you'll find the traditional seaside towns of Wells (12.5 miles), Sheringham (11 miles) and Cromer (14 miles), all offering activities for children with clean beaches and an opportunity to enjoy the sand and sea. Just under 10 miles away is the market town of Fakenham; visit on a Thursday to experience the Charter Market and see the whole town come to life.

A fab cottage for a family holiday. My 2y loved playing in the garden, the climbing frame and swings were a huge hit. The kitchen has everything you need, and the living area is very comfortable. We will be back again :)

Lovely home from home. Had everything we needed, very comfy and well equipped for babies.


Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

The most northerly county in the East of England, Norfolk is a land of beautiful contrasts. From the swooning reed beds and endless maze of waterways in the Norfolk Broads; the unspoilt stretches of fens and shingle spits where bird and wildlife thrive; a famous royal palace and the historic cathedral city of Norwich, this enticing area of England is just waiting to be discovered. Visit Sandringham Palace and see where the Queen lives or find out where lavender grows; you could journey to one of the largest seal haul outs in Europe at Blakeney Point or have a traditional day at the seaside at Cromer and Great Yarmouth. The cathedral gilded city of Norwich is a wonderful place to lose yourself either walking the ramparts of Norwich Castle or the RAF Air Defence Radar Museum. The city has an exceptional array of shops, cafes and restaurants to enjoy. Well connected to the national rail and road network, Norfolk is easily accessible from London, the M25 and from major city terminals.

Norfolk is characterised by its horizons and big skies, straight highways and rural trappings. Also, when it comes to attractions, visitors to the county will be spoilt for choice. If you love animals and birds, head to RSPB Titchwell Marsh, or the Cley-Next-The-Sea. With such a long coastline Norfolk boasts some magnificent stretches of beach – favourites include Cromer, Old Hunstanton, Wells-Next-The Sea, the dunes of Winterton-on-Sea, and Brancaster (a favourite for dog owners).

There are so many places to visit and activities to get involved in on a Norfolk holiday. We have some lovely properties including country cottages, farm conversions, large family houses, apartments and surburban home from homes in our collection. Why not find your perfect holiday home today?
