A wonderful countryside family retreat great to explore the Norfolk Coastline and Broads.

This is a wonderful rural retreat for a family looking to enjoy the beautiful countryside and stunning coastlines of northern Norfolk. Set on a working farm, this lovely reverse-level barn conversion is ideal for up to five guests, with two bedrooms, an open-plan first-floor lounge/kitchen/diner, an additional lounge and two en-suite shower rooms. There’s also a charming enclosed garden and access to a games room shared with the other property on-site.

Lovely cottage located on a farm close to the coast between Cromer and Great Yarmouth. It's also about 35 minutes away from Norwicn. It's set in a peaceful location within walking distance of the stunning beaches. Plenty of attractions to visit a North Norfolk, but a car is desirable. Friendly and helpful owner.

Lovely warm, clean and very comfortable. Wonderful showers and really comfy beds. We really enjoyed our stay and found lots of places to visit within a short distance.

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?
