Property details

Approached by a sweeping private driveway leading to Cannister Hall, Great Barn forms part of a small complex of converted Norfolk barns, that enjoy lovely open countryside views all round, the use of a large, communal garden area, and a fantastic, spacious on site games room which is fitted out with a snooker table, table tennis, table football as well as a 15m heated indoor swimming pool (please bring your own swimming towels).

With the the beautiful North Norfolk coastline only a twenty minute drive away and the nearby market town of Fakenham and all its facilities close by, there really is plenty on offer for all ages, at any time of year. The barn has lots of traditional features - exposed beams, timbers and interior brick walling - as well as all the mod cons and creature comforts to create a very comfortable and well-equipped holiday property.

There is a large log burner for cooler evenings, and modern wall mounted heaters in each room will ensure your stay is warm. The excellent ratio of three bedrooms, two modern bathrooms, plus downstairs cloakroom, will suit families, couples and friends looking to enjoy a break in this pretty part of rural North Norfolk.

Guest reviews

Happy customer - We had a very nice stay at the Great Barn, we would definitely return again. Very comfortable and easy access to Norwich, Kings Lynn and North Norfolk. Fantastic area and a beautiful Barn. Swimming pool and the games room is the bonus. Loved staying there.
