Barn Conversion in Hindolveston, Holt, North Norfolk - Ideally Positioned For North Norfolk Coast, Norfolk Broads And Norwich, Walking & Cycling.

Swallow Barn offers peace and privacy in a garden setting, where abundant wildlife includes owls - both barn owls and little owls - swallows and pipistrelle bats, as well as numerous garden birds and wild animals. It isn't unusual to see a young fox or pair of deer passing through! Buzzards and kites nest within half a mile. The garden at Swallow Barn is in full sunshine throughout the day, weather permitting(!), and benefits from some spectacular sunsets. It backs onto and overlooks the owner’s fields and farmland.

The property is spacious. It boasts a stunning beamed living room with three relaxing settees and large woodburner, which makes for cosy winter evenings; visitors can relax with a glass of wine in the conservatory overlooking the garden, and watch the evening forays of the barn owl across the field. The large master bedroom offers a king-size bed, TV and ensuite, whilst the second bedroom has two 3ft wide Myers divan beds. A comfortable M&S 4ft wide sofa bed in the living room completes the accommodation for up to six people. Free Wifi is provided.

Children and a maximum of two dogs are welcome at Swallow Barn. A cot option in the main bedroom is available on request, and a baby chair can be provided. The pine staircase seen in the photos leads to the owner's storage area, and is gated and locked at the bottom to prevent children accessing it. Dogs can run safely in the garden, which is surrounded by a post and rail fence, netted to the top, and gated to the road so it should contain even the smallest of dogs!. There is a bridle track for dog-walking a few hundred yards down the quiet lane from the property, and dogs will love the extensive sandy beaches at Wells and Holkham and local wooded walks.

The property offers gas central heating throughout, which makes it inviting and comfortable to stay in, whatever the season, as well as a wood-burning stove.

Swallow Barn is located some 6 miles from the Georgian town of Holt, with its excellent range of shops and restaurants. The many quiet lanes and off-road tracks are ideal for cycling and walking, while bird watchers will enjoy the local Raptor Point, Pensthorpe Nature Reserve and the Blakeney and Cley marshes. Blickling Hall and Felbrigg Hall – both National Trust properties – are about 20 minutes distance. Sandringham and Holkham Hall are easily accessible. Explore the North Norfolk Coast, with its clean, sandy beaches, as well as the Norfolk Broads and Norwich (30 mins), with its castle, theatres, shops and nightlife.

Within a 5-minute drive you will find: an excellent family-run butchery, 2 open-late general stores, scrumptious bakery (resist if you can!), fresh Cromer crabs and farm produce for sale, 2 takeaways and excellent food in pubs where dogs are welcome .

Whether you are looking for a family holiday or a romantic short break, you are sure to find lots to do in the area. Holidays usually run from Saturday to Saturday, and it is not necessary to contact the owner to check availability and cost of these holidays prior to booking as that information is displayed on this site and is always up-to-date. Please email the owner for prices of 5 day mid-week stays, as short breaks are sometimes available out of season.

Wonderful Time

By Rob on 22-Apr-2014

Our second visit to Swallow Barn. It is a peaceful quiet haven set in the "wilds" of Norfolk. Almost as far away from anywhere that you can get BUT still close enough to the attractions, the sea, the seals, walks, and everything this beautiful county has to offer. We have had a wonderful week the weather was good, and Swallow Barn was a lovely comfortable "home" to come back to after a day out exploring. Thank you Val.

Swallow Barn

By Sara B on 01-May-2014

We picked Swallow Barn as it was a 'dog friendly' holiday cottage for our family of 2 children and 2 Labrador dogs. Couldn't have picked a better place to stay! Val made us feel very welcome and was more than happy to give information of the local area, dog friendly walks and beaches. The barn is beautifully converted and very spacious. We really enjoyed relaxing in the conservatory whilst watching the kids play cricket in the field. The garden is completely enclosed ensuring the safety of our dogs. The area is stunning with the beautiful 'Wells next the Sea' just a 25 min drive away with stunning walks through the pine forest and beach just goes on for miles! Looking forward to booking again for next year! Recommended for: Families with Young Children, Pet-friendly, Sightseeing.

Peaceful and Pleasurable

By Carolyn on 19-Aug-2014

We were impressed by Swallow barn, it had space and and been beautifully converted. The house is in a lovely rural location, but only about 8 miles from Holt, with a choice of an A road or a B road to get there. The Conservatory on the front was a delight when the day cooled or first thing in the morning for breakfast in the sun. We enjoyed eating out on the patio and were pleased to have a Barbecue on hand. The Living room is large with a fire, but we enjoyed the conservatory too much to want to use it. The beds were really comfy with new Pocket-sprung mattresses. We loved the convenience of having 2 bathrooms with showers. Val has just had WiFi installed, so internet access was available. The house was clean and well-equipped, even with tablets for the Dishwasher. The owner Val was really friendly and denied us a Hoover to clean up prior to leaving as we were on holiday!! Can you ask for more?
