    “We had a lovely weekend at The Old Barn.”

    The owners were very helpful and were at hand to help with queries. The cottage is lovely and spacious and we had everything we needed. Being near the road, there was some noise but it was ok. Didn't disturb our time there. The only thing I would recommend is probably a small hand rail near the two steps inside the house. My elderly mum needed a little help as there was nothing to hold on to it. It was our first time in this part of Norfolk and there were numerous beaches and walks near the ...

The property

Resting on the coastal road that leads to the beach in the village of Walcott, Norfolk, is The Old Barn, an 18th century barn conversion next door to the owner's home.

This spacious ground-floor property is the ideal retreat for a family or group of six wanting to enjoy a Norfolk coastal retreat.

This property is a wonderful mix of traditional and contemporary, with character features a-frame ceilings adorned with wooden beams, an exposed brick fireplace with woodburning stove and quirky alcoves, mixed with modern conveniences and a simple but stylish décor.

Head into the spacious living/dining room and relax on one of the three plush sofas, carefully placed around the fireplace, and fire up the woodburning stove as you unwind with a good book or a family film night on the wall-mounted TV.

The dining table comfortably seats the whole group, so home-cooked meals can be enjoyed together, lovingly prepared in the well-equipped kitchen, hosting all the appliances you could need to cook up a storm, and why not make use of the working fire bell to alert the group that dinner is ready?

The utility room offers a place to get yourself and your four-legged friends cleaned up after a day at the beach, with a washing machine and tumble dryer for your convenience.

When sleep is calling, discover three inviting bedrooms to catch your rest in, comprising two doubles and a twin, all of which boast wooden beams, wardrobes for your belonging and stunning floorboards, sharing access to the spacious family bathroom, which offers a choice of bath and shower.

The enclosed courtyard garden is perfect for allowing the dogs to stretch their legs, while an additional patio and seating area can be found just around the corner, where you can enjoy a quiet moment with a morning coffee.

Walcott's amenities and beach are within short distance, although it may be better to access by car, as the coastal road doesn't have a path, but you will find plenty of free parking at the sea front, along with a café, an excellent fish and chip shop and a convenience store with Post Office, for any essential items you may need to pick up.

The name Walcott is derived from the Celtic word Walecote, which means "village by the wood", and it's an ideal place for walking, cycling, horse riding, fishing and bird watching.

Stroll along the coastal path and onto the cliffs as you make your way towards Happisburgh and its lighthouse, or venture towards Bacton along the sea defence walls.

Mundesley offers a choice of lovely sandy beaches, lined with eye-catching coloured beach huts, while further north is Cromer and a range of family-friendly attractions, including the RNLI Henry Blogg Museum and Amazona Zoo, while the pier is the perfect place for an afternoon stroll and a spot of fish and chips.

Head further inland to discover stunning National Trust properties of Blickling Estate, the 17th century Felbrigg Hall and Holkham Hall, constructed for the 1st Earl of Leicester.

The city of Norwich offers wonderful shopping facilities, as well as a host of pubs and restaurants, and its stunning Norman castle is a must see, while the magnificent 125 miles of waterways that makes up the Norfolk Broads is approximately a 15-minute drive away, ideal for exploring by boat.

With so many opportunities available from your doorstep, The Old Barn is a wonderful base for your next coastal escape to Norfolk.

About the location

WALCOTT

North Walsham 6 miles; Cromer 14 miles; Norwich 18 miles.

Walcott is a lovely coastal village that sits right in the middle of the Norfolk coastline, with many small and friendly coastal villages nearby; Bacton where the ruins of Bromholm Priory and Bacton Woods can be found, Happisburgh with its impressive lighthouse, and Mundesley with its fine sandy beaches are to name but a few. The name Walcott is derived from the Celtic word Walecote, which means "village by the wood". It is an ideal place for walking, cycling, horse riding, fishing, bird watching or simply relaxing and enjoying the many views. Walcott is also a great location for exploring the beautiful scenery of the Norfolk coast, as well as the famous Norfolk Broads. Further inland there are plenty of famous National Trust properties to visit, such as Blickling, Felbrigg and Holkham Halls, or why not visit the historic city of Norwich, with its beautiful Norman Cathedral and Castle, and of course spend your money in the many shops, pubs and restaurants on offer.
