Once a row of farm stables in Briston, Highfield Barn now provides spacious, modern accommodation, which is flooded with light. Every detail of this barn has benefitted from the owner's careful attention to detail. Large angled windows, handcrafted wooden surfaces and low exposed beams give this property a combination of style and character. Enjoy relaxing in this property which is a definite home-from-home.

The large communal lounge/dining area is ideal for relaxing, with a wood burner stove, wide-screen TV, and a contemporary kitchen, you can find all of your home comforts amongst the countryside of Norfolk.

The cottage is well placed for local amenities, such as eating houses, shops etc. It is also easy to get to the main towns around such as Holt and Fakenham. Although, like the rest of Norfolk, the roads are quite narrow, it is quite easy to travel around. There are many attractions, such as National Trust, Coastlines, and Towns to explore.

We thoroughly enjoyed our three-night break. Graham and Karen were most welcoming. Highfield Barn was extremely well-equipped and provided an excellent base for exploring this beautiful part of the country. Our young grandson loved the North Norfolk railway and messing about on the beach at Sheringham.

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?
