Situated in the picturesque village conservation area of Burnham Market, close to the beautiful North Norfolk Heritage Coast with its miles of soft sandy beaches. Barley Cottage is in a peaceful backwater yet it is just a few minutes walk from the village green, local shops and award winning restaurants, making it the perfect venue for a relaxing holiday.
The cottage is one of eight cottages converted from the original Maltings building and its attractive flint and brick exterior is complimented by the wealth of exposed beams inside. In Summer the sun floods through the cottage and meals can be enjoyed outside, whilst in Winter it is warm and cosy indoors. There are night storage or electric heaters in all the rooms and in addition an electric 'wood burner style' fire in the sitting room. All linen/towels and electricity is included in the rental price.
The cottage comfortably sleeps 5/6 in three bedrooms and it is well equipped and furnished. The cottage is inspected yearly by Visit England and is rated 4 Star Gold. We were delighted to be awarded the Rose Award in 2022 in recognition of service excellence. We regret we are unable to accommodate pets and the cottage is non smoking.
