    “The property is in the centre of Norfolk roughly equally distance from the east, west and north coasts. It is reached by a couple of miles of single track road. At the start of this road there is a Co-op so you can pick up provisions. The Hayloft is the top half of the building you see in the photographs so anyone with mobility issues would struggle particularly as the doorway between the lounge and bedroom is extremely low and anyone above average build would have problems using the shower room ...”

    “The property is in the centre of Norfolk roughly equally distance from the east, west and north coasts. It is reached by a couple of miles of single track road. At the start of this road there is a Co-op so you can pick up provisions. The Hayloft is the top half of the building you see in the photographs so anyone with mobility issues would struggle particularly as the doorway between the lounge and bedroom is extremely low and anyone above average build would have problems using the shower room / wc. Other than that it is a comfortable accommodation with everything you need in the kitchen and a wood burner in the lounge. The only issue I found was that the Information Book was not on view and when we eventually found it there was information that was out of date.”

The property

Necton 2 miles.

A stylish, first floor barn conversion, peacefully situated in the tiny rural hamlet of West End, 2 miles from Necton and 5 miles from Swaffham.

Carefully renovated to retain much charm and character, this homely property boasts original beams and a warming woodburner situated on the original doorstep of the former farmhouse, while wonderful skylights frame picturesque views from all aspects.

The pretty garden features its own babbling brook, leading to 2 acres of land where ducks and chickens roam free.

Follow Peddars Way to the village of Castle Acre, absorbing the tranquil countryside, explore Bradenham Hall with its whispering arboretum and striking gardens or the pretty market town of Dereham, home to an array of shops, cafes and restaurants.

A wonderful base for a romantic getaway.

About the location

NECTON

Swaffham 5 miles; Dereham 6 miles; Norwich 22 miles.

The thriving village of Necton is situated at the heart of Norfolk, between the market towns of Swaffham and Dereham, and hosts a welcoming pub with restaurant, a village store with butcher’s and a post office, whilst an impressive Norman church dominates the village and boasts a beautiful carved oak communion table dating back to 1086 and a wonderful Jacobean pulpit. Visit Bradenham Hall, a fine Georgian house with over 27 acres of beautiful gardens and arboretum, reputed to have been visited by Lord Nelson, or enjoy the infamous Peddars Way and the Norfolk Coastal Path, offering 93 tranquil miles of picturesque Norfolk countryside close by, great for walking, cycling and horse riding. The pretty market town of Dereham is just 6 miles away offering a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants and a local farmers' market every fortnight. Plenty to see and do in this lovely location.
