This beautifully restored contemporary barn surrounded by splendid Norfolk countryside and just 8 miles from the beach offers a family or a couple the ideal retreat and base from which to explore North Norfolk.

Surrounded by glorious Norfolk countryside located on the fringes of North Norfolk in the peaceful village of Suffield, you are also just 5 miles from the popular Georgian town of Aylsham. Explore the town’s cobbled streets and narrow alleys which offer an array of shops, pubs, eateries, and a twice-weekly market. The popular Gunton Arms, a traditional pub and restaurant, is well worth a visit, situated on a 1,000-acre deer farm and within 4 miles of the property. Cromer (8 miles) is a perfect example of a traditional English seaside town with a sandy beach, a pier with traditional entertainment, and a wide range of independent cafes, pubs, and restaurants, many of which offer freshly caught local seafood. Just 19 miles away to the south is the city of Norwich, and the beautiful waterways of the Norfolk Broads are within easy reach with Wroxham just 15 miles away.

As you enter this property through the front door, you arrive in the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. You will see the attention to detail that has lovingly gone into this restored barn and, with its open-plan layout, this is a very social environment in which to spend time with loved ones. The property also benefits from wooden flooring throughout and underfloor heating which means you will feel cosy all year round. The lounge area has a comfortable sofa and 2 armchairs that surround a Smart TV and a wood burner, perfect for those dark and chilly nights. The kitchen has everything the head chef needs to prepare a light snack or hearty meal, with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment, slimline dishwasher and a washing machine. When dinner is ready, head on over and serve up at the dining table that has enough seating for four guests. When it’s bedtime, you have a choice of a king-size master bedroom with plenty of storage space along with an en-suite shower room and WC; or there is a twin room, again with more than enough space to store your clothes and belongings. This room has use of the family bathroom with a bath, separate shower, and a WC.

Outside, you have a patio area with garden furniture and a charcoal BBQ, the ideal space for catching some sun and dining alfresco; there is also a lawned area beyond. Finally, there is private off-road parking for two cars.

What an absolute gem of a place. I originally chose Cornflower Barn for its location near to many of my family and friends but the cottage was such a joy to stay in. Well appointed, comfortable, light and airy, and thoughtfully converted. It is surrounded by wonderful Norfolk farmland within easy reach of the coast and market towns. I hope to returRead moren.

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?
