Description

Originally built in 1846, Windham’s Barn has been tastefully restored to offer a luxurious and peaceful escape for families and groups of friends. Set within its own grounds at the heart of an historical farming estate, and completely surrounded by countryside, this self-catering conversion is also conveniently close to the hamlet of Thurgarton and the beautiful beaches of North Norfolk.

Stunning views from every room

The sophistication of Windham’s Barn is immediate. Greeting visitors with comfortable seating in the entrance hall, the area then leads to an open-plan dining room and fully-equipped kitchen, at the back of which is another sitting area. Under a full-length vaulted ceiling and exposed, original beams, the view and natural light pour in through full-height, sliding glass doors that run along the entire south side of the room, and which open on to the rear garden.

Separate from the dining room and kitchen area are a television room and a large sitting room. A fireplace makes for a beautiful focal point in the sitting room, and the French doors open on to the south-facing terrace. The Master bedroom is also on the ground floor and has a king-size, four-poster bed and patio doors that lead to its own terrace. It also has an en-suite bathroom and WC. Completing the ground floor are a utility room with washer and tumble dryer and a shower room with WC.

Just over a mile away is the quintessentially English village of Aldborough and another five miles to the north is Cromer and the coast, and 18-hole golf courses, while the Georgian market town of Holt is just eight miles west. For National Trust lovers, Felbrigg Hall, Blickling Hall, and Blakeney Point are also nearby. Visitors may never want to leave Windham’s Barn, though – there are lovely walks right outside the door, and there is even an enclosed hard tennis court on the grounds.

Bedrooms and bathrooms

The next four bedrooms and two bathrooms with WC are on the first floor. While the first bedroom has a king-size bed, the next two have super-king beds convertible to twin beds, and the last is the undisputed children’s room with a full-size bunk bed. Then, tucked away via a separate staircase, is the sixth and final bedroom in Windham’s Barn. This bedroom also has a super-king bed convertible to twin beds.

Practicalities

We welcome two well-behaved dogs. We are happy to provide a travel cot, high chair, two stair gates for your stay. If you require the super-king beds to be made up as twin beds, we ask that you please make this request on booking. We will require a £250 security deposit (£500 for New Year bookings), payable two weeks prior to your stay. The property has a driveway with parking space for up to six cars. Mobile phone reception is variable.

Special Note: The property is approached by a single-track, unsurfaced lane which is also used by farm vehicles. The summer months are the harvesting period in the surrounding fields.

Reviews

We had a wonderful time at Windham’s Barn, it was five star accommodation with everything you need. The location was great for peace and quiet but not too far away from things like the beach or really good walks. I would thoroughly recommend for a large family group break

Ms Lisa P,

Just a big thanks you for oiling the wheels to a totally delightful family Christmas in wonderful accommodation. Everything went as described. No hitches. Beautiful place, key easily obtained, even some sunshine in December. We would love to visit again - possibly in summer. I cannot thank you enough.

Irene J,

Kittiwake cottage in Brancaster was lovely. My sister and I visited for a week. Beautiful furnished and equipped and the village was great, with several excellent pubs. Windham's Barn Nr Cromer was just wonderful. Nine of us stayed there - a family break for the grown ups. It was beautiful. Furniture was perfect, bedrooms and bathrooms excellent, and the kitchen/living room was superb. It's a bit out in the wilds, but we like that sort of thing. Cromer was only 5 miles down the road. Thank you for two excellent cottages.

Mrs Anne K,

Exactly and what we were hoping for. A thoroughly enjoyable stay. Equipped with everything we needed.

Mrs Janet S,
