Property details

Nelson's Barn is a beautiful conversion of old stabling and a barn on the site of The Old Rectory where Admiral Lord Nelson was born. There is a plaque on the wall outside recording this historical fact. The barn overlooks the water meadows where the River Burn meanders towards Burnham Overy. This is a really peaceful spot with lots of wildlife, including barn owls and marsh harriers.

The accommodation is really spacious with bedrooms on both floors. A cosy log burner in the main sitting room will keep you warm on cooler evenings. There is a galleried landing around the main living space, with a hexagonal skylight to the roof.

Nelson's Barn holiday cottage location

Surrounding local area

Burnham Thorpe is a small village on the River Burn just a couple of miles from Burnham Market. Most famous for being the birthplace of Horatio Nelson, one of England's greatest heroes. Nelson's father Edmund Nelson was rector of the parish church. There is a flag from The Victory here. The house where Nelson was born was demolished shortly after his birth though the beautiful rectory that replaced it is still there. The village pub was built in 1637 and called The Plough, it was renamed The Lord Nelson in 1798 after Nelson's victory at The Battle of the Nile. The pub still survives today with its tiny bar and low ceilings. You can enjoy a drop of Nelson's Blood here!
