Dating back to the 19th century and built of Norfolk red brick and flint, Keys Barn is now a beautifully bright, spacious, and luxurious self-catering coastal getaway. After enjoying a day at the beach, or walking or cycling the local trails and quiet lanes, kick back in the rustic-chic elegance of a glass-fronted gallery, exposed-brick arches, and nearly an acre of outright serenity.
A country retreat by the coast
They say that a change is as good as a rest, but Keys Barn offers the best of both worlds. Located in the quiet village of Southrepps, this converted barn offers the dreamy rusticity of a large pond, a sunken garden, and a vegetable patch on the expansive grounds. For those days when you need to touch base with civilisation again, Cromer, the Norfolk Broads, the Poppy Line and Bure Valley Railways, and several National Trust estates are all within easy reach.
In the meantime, Keys Barn is the picture of a classy country retreat. Double-height ceilings, exposed beams and brick walls, brass-and-iron beds, deep leather sofas in the sitting room, and a focal point wood burner all capture the barn’s traditional charm, while floor-to-ceiling windows, an oak staircase, and bright rooms give it a modern twist. For relaxation, there is a games room through the sitting room, while the stylish and fully-equipped kitchen is a great place to chat while sipping a glass of red and throwing together a small feast to enjoy with family and friends around the table on the patio.
Bedrooms and bathrooms
For added privacy, the king-size master suite is on the ground floor and enjoys access to the sunken, landscaped garden, which can be lit up at night to add that extra touch of romance. Serving the ground floor is a cloakroom with WC. On the first floor are another king-size bedroom and a twin room, as well as a second bathroom with WC.
We welcome two well-behaved small/medium dogs. If you have young children, they should be supervised at all times near water as the pond is unfenced. Mobile phone signal is poor.

A really wonderful cottage and a magnificent garden. We have stayed in a lot of cottages and found this one first class. The beds were so comfy and all supplies well catered for. And yes, we would go back again and recommend it to other holiday makers . Ray Neal - 18th September 2018
A beautiful converted barn, luxurious, spacious and with a fantastic garden. Excellent location for easy access to the coast and many other places of interest. Mr KEITH McPHERSON - 10th September 2018
Keys Barn was an outstanding place to holiday, will definitely recommend and hope to return. Mrs Lynne Turner - 19th September 2017

Extremely beautiful and we didn't want to leave. Mrs Sasha Consiglio - 24th July 2017
The property was lovely, very clean and very well equipped. Mrs Julie Mills - 26th June 2017
We've all had a lovely holiday here in Norfolk - (including George the Schnauzer, who didn't want to go home) The barn is amazing, I would love love to live here and also let us know if you ever intend to sell up!! Would definitely come and stay at Keys Barn again. Many thanks.The Miller Party - 10th September 2016
Delightful accommodation, with everything one could wish for and a little bit more! I'm not sure if we actually christened the barbecue, but we certainly gave it a workout - the weather and evenings were fantastic.The Knowles Family - 3rd September 2016
The property was fabulous - it was beyond expectationsMr michael wood - 22nd August 2016
The perfect holiday - Beautiful weather and of cause the wonderful barn. My favourite feature of the garden was the vegetable plot. I prepared a potato salad, which tasted particularly delicious eating it alfresco on the lovely patio.The Wood Party - 20th August 2016
We have had a wonderful week here at Keys Barn with our two dogs and six year old daughter. We particularly enjoyed Amazona Zoo, Seal trip at Blakeney and Cromer beach. 5* accommodation and really comfortable beds. The dogs really enjoyed the garden too...... Many many thanks.Shelly, Jamie & Bronte - 13th August 2016
We have enjoyed a wonderful week at Keys Barn. The property is situated in a very peaceful location and we found it to be ideally situated to explore the area within North Norfolk. The barn itself is beautiful and the extensive outside space was greatly appreciated by us all - possibly most of all by Harvey (our dog.) The facilities you have provided are first rate and are a reflection of the thought and effort you have made to ensure your guests are more than comfortable. The welcome basket was also a very nice and highly appreciated gesture. Thank you for helping to make our stay in Norfolk so pleasurable.Sue, Jo, Karen...... & Harvey! - 16th July 2016
Lovely roomy accommodation, great garden, even Sky TV for Euro 2016! - Shame about England footballers! Great weather, lovely area, can't wait to come here again.The Fuggle Party - 2nd July 2016
Wonderful; an amazing holiday location & the accommodation just perfect.... Stocked with everything we could need for a home from home break, including really comfy beds and beautiful linen. The garden has been a fabulous treat for our pampered pooch and us too. Thank you for a great break! And, please please contact us should you wish to sell - we'd buy tomorrow!The Peterson Party - 25th June 2016
Superb holiday cottage - one of the best we have stayed in - thanks for a lovely holiday. The only other comment we have - is please let us know if you ever intend to sell!!! Thanks.The Loveday Party - 18th June 2016
Thank you so much for such a wonderful and totally relaxing stay in your beautiful barn. It has been a real retreat for us. We have certainly had everything we could ever need here and more! Your attention to detail is second to none and the lovely flowers for our arrival a very warm and welcoming gesture. Also the tea, coffee and tasty biscuits were most appreciated. Our children have enjoyed the table football, chess, DVDs and games! We have also enjoyed the wood burning stove and the very comfortable beds - You have a beautiful barn. Many thanks.The Hillsdon Family - 5th June 2016
