A beautiful barn, perfect for 2 or 3 families. Very clean and contemporary. Fantastic games room with pool table, bar area and large comfy sofa, ideal for the evenings.

Huge property for big groups and the sleeping arrangements mean that there are at least two double bedrooms well away from any noise in the living room and games room. Nice lawned garden at the front and a more cosy courtyard in the back. Close enough to the A47 for convenience but not too close so there is very little road noise.

This is an ideal property for large groups with various self contained areas. The games room is a big hit and the courtyard a real sun trap. Comfortable beds and bedding and soft towels in all rooms make for a very pleasant stay. Good walking from the door and not far in the car to the Broads and Norfolk Coast.
