Description from the manager
Threshing Barn lies in a tranquil little river valley almost in a world of its own. The barn was part of a historic farming estate and is surrounded by the protected lands of the Priory. For many years home only to swallows, the barn has now been brought back to life by an architect and his wife who have created an elegant retreat that marries the best of traditional Norfolk materials with contemporary design.
Converted from the massive 19th century granary, the barn faces south and east towards an un-bridged ford on the river. From the luxurious comfort of the first floor sitting room, where the backdrop of rustic clunch walls sets off...Read more

Additional Location Information
The beautiful North Norfolk coast is never very far away and the variety of landscape in this part of East Anglia is remarkable. It all nestles under wonderful big blue skies: sandstone cliffs, saltmarsh, sandy beaches, shingle, muddy creek banks, and crashing breakers. There is much to explore from Hunstanton to Sheringham and round to Happisburgh.
There is much to do for all ages and interests: beautiful beaches for picnics, swimming or walking, hidden creeks on the saltmarshes, fantastic birdwatching, easy cycling, lake or sea fishing, quaint villages, shopping in the sophisticated small towns of Holt and Burnham Market or visiting more traditional seaside resorts like Hunstanton and Cromer.
Guests can sail at Morston, windsurf or kitesurf at Brancaster, take a boat trip to see the seals at Blakeney Point, hire a beach hut at Wells-next-the-Sea, stride along the grand expanse of Holkham beach, explore creeks and quays at Brancaster and Burnham Overy Staithe, go twitching on the salt marshes of Cley-next-the-Sea for rare sightings, and eat excellent local food at any number of pubs and restaurants.
For keen golfers, Norfolk has some of the most dramatic and challenging golf courses in the country: try Sheringham, Royal West Norfolk at Brancaster, Royal Cromer or King’s Lynn.
Take in the sights from the Walsingham & Wells narrow gauge railway, or visit some of the most spectacular stately homes, historic houses and gardens in the country. Holkham, Houghton, Blickling and Oxburgh and Royal Sandringham are all within easy distance.
Go a little bit further inland and discover the Norfolk Broads, miles and miles of inland waterways to explore. Guests may hire a motor cruiser, traditional sailing boat or take a guided tour in this wonderfully idyllic nature reserve that is rich in wildlife.
