Spacious Group Retreat, near Cromer (1605NO)

The Property is a beautifully renovated 19C barn in a totally private rural setting with stunning views across open countryside from every room. Built in 1846 by William Windham, owner of nearby Felbrigg Hall, the barn is idyllically located within its own grounds at the heart of an historical farming estate belonging to the owner's family for almost a century. Offering spacious, laid-back luxury for families and groups of friends to relax and unwind, the barn has been tastefully restored to a high standard, providing an elegant, contemporary, light-filled peaceful escape. With two sitting rooms and large open plan dining kitchen with seating area, original beams and full height sliding glass doors that run along one side of the room, you might not feel like venturing too far. For sunny days there is an enclosed south facing garden with two terraces and, for more active days, you can play tennis on a court within the grounds - or put your boots on and explore the lovely walks available from outside the door. And, if you can manage to tear yourself away from this lovely spot, don't forget the beautiful beaches of North Norfolk - just fifteen minutes' drive away. Shop/Pub: 1.3 miles

The hamlet of Thurgarton is situated in one of the prettiest and most unspoilt areas of North Norfolk within undulating countryside. It is just over a mile from the quintessential English village of Aldborough, with its large village green, convenience store and pub. The Georgian market town of Holt is about eight miles west where you will find excellent shopping and other amenities. The North Norfolk coast, much of which is classified as being of outstanding natural beauty, and is a heritage coastline, is some five miles to the north and offers numerous recreational pursuits including bird sanctuaries, safe sandy beaches and excellent sailing facilities at Blakeney and Morston. There are 18 hole golf courses at nearby Cromer and Sheringham. For National Trust lovers, Felbrigg Hall, Blicking and Blakeney Point are in close proximity and, if you are searching for first-class food look no further than The Gunton Arms at Thorpe Park or treat yourself to the best fish and chips in the area at No 1 restaurant in Cromer.

A classic seaside town with colourful shops and a traditional pier, which houses a pavilion theatre with variety shows and cabaret. The RNLI museum has interactive displays of life boating and pays tribute to Henry Blogg, one of Norfolks heroes who served 53 years working on the Cromer coast. The town museum has fascinating archives of the fishing trade and collections of fossils all discovered locally.

The Cromer Boating Lake is a fantastic family site with a picnic area, trampolines and putting green. There is a choice of canoes and boats to paddle about in. There are elevated views of the town from the cliff top walk to Overstrand, this takes visitors past the Royal Cromer Golf Club and the lighthouse. A centre piece of the town is the church of St Peter & St Paul, for those brave enough to venture up the 172 steps to the tower there are views of the pier and coastline.

On the outskirts of the town is Amazona Zoo, specialising in South American wildlife including caimans, jaguars and monkeys. Hillside Sanctuary is another great day out for animal lovers, with rescued shire horses and donkeys. There is a museum on site which has collections of agricultural machinery and blacksmith equipment. Blickling Estate has over 950 acres of woods and parkland to explore. Baconsthorpe Castle is worth a visit; wander through the unspoilt ruins of this 15th century fortified manor.


Located on the east coast of England, facing Europe across the North Sea, Norfolk is one of the UK's most rural counties, with over forty percent of its population living in just four towns – Norwich, Great Yarmouth, King's Lynn and Thetford. Adjacent to The Wash, in whose mud the medieval King John famously lost the Crown Jewels in 1216, Norfolk's geography is that of low plains or “fens”, which makes it along with neighbouring Suffolk feel more like northern countries of European mainland (Belgium and Holland) than the rest of England which is predominantly hilly.

In a similar way to that of the “low countries”, erosion and land reclamation have changed the coastline over the centuries, so that several towns (King's Lynn, for instance) which were once on the coast are now to be found several miles inland! The whole set-up makes for some very interesting topography as well as history and Norfolk is, for this reason, an interesting county to visit, almost as if it was a different country altogether!

East of England

This region includes the ceremonial counties of Norfolk and Suffolk, Hertfordshire, Essex, Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire. With a rich heritage there is much to see and do to suit all ages. The royal residency of Sandringham Estate is a must see and other historical points of interest include Castle Rising, Sutton Hoo and Somerleyton Hall. The medieval cities of Cambridge, Norwich and Ipswich are not to be missed and there are lots of pretty market towns and idyllic seaside resorts to choose from for a day trip. Alternatively for a slower paced holiday you may wish to visit The Broads or Thetford Forest, these areas are particularly popular for boating and spotting birdlife.
