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' feel, with colourful, contemporary furniture adding a real zing. Full height windows on one side flood the space with light.

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 relax and unwind, 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.

Guest reviews

We had a very enjoyable family holiday. Our granchildren enjoyed the space to play outside and we felt relaxed knowing they were safe. We enjoyed the peace and tranquillity of the area. We met Carol and her family who were very friendly and helpful. The Barn was very well equipped with appliances, utensils and essentials. The bottle of wine waiting for us on arrival was appreciated as was the milk, coffee and tea. We would definitely recommend this property to family and friends and also a thank you to Norfolk Hideaways for their help and efficiency.

A great week away with the grandchildren, lovely friendly owners on hand for things we needed; well kitted out for cooking equipment if required and a generous supply of towels and essentials. A warm welcome and even some goodies for us to enjoy - thanks.

Butterfly Barn is a great place for families and couples alike - set in an unspoilt location, this peaceful and modern barn conversion provided everything we needed for a great family holiday. Nearby Sheringham and Cromer offer shops sand beaches and the cottage is in easy reach of Blakeney for the seal watching.

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.
