  • A sophisticated and thoughtfully styled barn conversion to relax in with countryside views and a short stroll to the local plant nursery with coffee shop
  • Ideal for family get-togethers and celebrations, a short drive to the Suffolk Heritage Coast and ideal for walkers and cyclists at nearby Thetford Forest
  • Perfect for exploring the Waveney Valley and both Norfolk and Suffolk
Property code: 56008

This superb barn, newly converted in 2018, is ideally located on the Norfolk/Suffolk border and provides an excellent base to explore the abundance of activities and attractions within both counties. For easily accessible day trips there is the scenic Suffolk heritage coastline with charming seaside towns, the Broads with miles of magical waterways to explore, historic towns such as Bury St Edmunds with impressive abbey and gardens and intricate cobbled streets full of interesting shops and boutiques. For those looking for more active pursuits, Thetford Forest has excellent cycling and walking routes and for sports enthusiasts, racing at Snetterton circuit or fishing at Hinderclay Lakes will appeal. A short stroll will take you to the local plant nursery with its coffee shop. If all this sounds too exhausting, a day relaxing at the property, watching the world go by is never wasted time.

Upon entering the beautiful hallway guests will immediately gain a sense of light and space which features throughout the barn. The high glass ceiling floods the room with light and provides opportunities to stargaze on a clear night. The wide hallway with handy coat and shoe cupboard, and separate WC, leads through to the impressive open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner which has been designed to make the most of the countryside views with full height windows overlooking the garden and beyond. The lounge area provides a comfortable place to relax and catch up with friends and family with three sofas arranged around the TV/DVD. The stylish kitchen area features a centre island and is equipped with electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge and freezer, everything required for holiday dining and to help with the cleaning after, a handy dishwasher. This lovely entertaining space also has a dining area and door to a utility room where guests can find a washing machine and tumble dryer. The barn has four spacious bedrooms, two king-size and two twin bedrooms. Finishing the single-storey accommodation is the bathroom with shower over bath and WC, and a shower room with WC.

Opening the lounge doors to the garden, guests can enjoy the large enclosed garden, ideal for children to let off any excess energy. There is a patio area with garden furniture and charcoal BBQ for those wishing to dine alfresco or enjoy a warm summers evening in these delightfully peaceful surroundings. The driveway provides off-road parking for four cars adjacent to the barn.

This is a really beautiful holiday house and ideally designed for two families sharing. We had a wonderful time and would definitely return again. The location is beautiful and feels quite remote but still within easy reach of local towns and allows day trips to the coast.
