Surrounded by open countryside, on the edge of the picturesque Norfolk Broads, Thatch Barn is ideally and centrally placed for exploring the unique broads and rivers, the North Norfolk coast and the ancient cathedral city of Norwich.
This linked barn is approached by a shared drive and offers wonderful views. Providing a modern contemporary feel, whilst retaining many of its original features such as the exposed beams and open brickwork, the barn is light and spacious with french doors from both the sitting room and some of the bedrooms leading out to the garden.

Attractions and nearby amenities
The small village of South Walsham is only two miles away and boasts two pubs, a post office and store as well as the magical Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden where you can enjoy ample, wonderful walks.
A little further and you will discover the thriving village of Acle (three miles), sometimes known as “The Gateway to The Broads” due to the River Byre flowing out to the coast in one direction and to the Broads in the other. Here you will be able to find all your necessary amenities.
Within close proximity you can go and explore the cathedral city of Norwich (eight miles) with its Norman castle and lively bars and restaurants. This vibrant city has a wealth of places to visit and often you will discover a festival of some sort occurring within the heart of the city.
If you would prefer something more active and are craving the sea air, the beautiful beaches of the North Norfolk coast are 30 miles away. However, slightly closer to home you can visit the nearest broad with its waterway and boating. Otherwise there are an abundance of activities to try on the lakes such as rowing, canoeing, kayaking and water zorbing.
Slightly further afield (30 to 70 minutes) there are a wealth of stunning gardens and spectacular homes to admire. This includes Holkham Hall, Oxburgh Hall, Castle Rising, Raveningham Gardens, Mannington Gardens and Walsingham Abbey and Grounds to name but a few.
