Property details

A fabulous, stylish barn conversion set in a beautiful and peaceful rural location, yet under ten minutes' drive from the North Norfolk coast.

Butterfly Barn is a light and airy refurbished barn, with wonderful open countryside views. A large open plan ground floor living area has a modern 'loft living' vibe, with colourful, contemporary furniture adding a real zing, and full height windows on one side flooding the space with light. There is a double bedroom with en suite shower downstairs, with two further bedrooms upstairs (a twin and single with wonderful rural views) along with a family bathroom. There is a galleried landing above the living area below. Although there is a high bannister in place, parents need to be mindful of little ones who might be tempted to climb up the bannister (see pictures).

This lovely, rather romantic rural retreat will suit a couple or two, as well as friends and families, at any time of the year. It's a great get-away-from-it-all private location, somewhere to chill out and wind down, but also a comfortable base from which to explore this lovely area of North Norfolk. From here you have easy access to local beaches, wonderful coastal and rural walks, shopping and eating in Sheringham, Cromer and Holt, and always somewhere peaceful to return to and relax at the end of a busy day.

Two well-behaved dogs are welcome at the barn, but asked to respect house rules and be kept under control. Please note: the garden is not enclosed and there is side access into the owner's adjoining garden, where there is an uncovered pond.

Guest reviews

Beautiful accommodation in a wonderful setting. We arrived to a lovely friendly welcome and a wonderfully clean spacious barn conversion. There were some welcome essentials including a very nice bottle of wine. Head room on the upper floor was ok, but taller people need to watch their heads (I'm 5ft 11 and I had to be careful) my daughter however thought it was awesome. The location is excellent with beautiful surroundings. We found it to be an excellent base to explore Norfolk and a welcome place to return to after our travels. Would certainly return for another stay!

We stayed at Butterfly Barn for 2 nights, brilliant location, the barn is light and bright and welcoming. The white fluffy towels were a real luxury! Thank you.

What a lovely place in a peaceful location in the countryside but a stone’s throw from the beach. What more could you ask for? Many thanks.

Wonderful cottage. Lovely and well presented. Lots of helpful information provided for the surrounding area and the facilities in the cottage. It is in a very quiet rural area but a short drive from the coast towns such as Sheringham and Cromer.
