    “A delightful stay in this dear little cottage, and a warm welcome from the owners.”

    There were many unexpected extras, including an Alexa, which we enjoyed playing with! The outside space is peaceful, attractive & very private. The perfect base for exploring Norfolk. We would definitely stay here again! Thank you Stu & Jess.

The property

The Little Hay Barn is a rustic barn conversion nestled within the grounds of a Grade II-listed 16th-century manor house, just a stroll away from the beach in Bacton, Norfolk. Perfect for a couple, small family, a solo traveller, or even friends due to the zip/link bed, this holiday home hosts all the home comforts you need, while offering a private entrance and an idyllic base from which to explore this scenic area. As you step inside, you will find the perfect balance of character and contemporary throughout the property, with original features, such as exposed beams, and stylish touches including plenty of plants, signature pieces, and a gorgeous terracotta kitchen. The kitchen boasts all the appliances you need to rustle up delicious dinners, with a dining table for two providing a space to enjoy your meals. From here, cosy up in front of the woodburning stove with a film on the TV, or in the warmer months, make the most of the picture-perfect gardens, with furniture and a lawn space to utilise. Lovely and private, not overlooked by any buildings, yet with a view of three charming, 16th-century, thatched and listed properties, one of which is a Norfolk Flint cottage; the garden is a delightful space with a true immersion into the area's rich architectural history. Back inside and up the stairs, the character continues, with décor paying homage to The Little Hay Barn’s previous life as a hay barn and a vintage vinyl record player; the super-king-size bed invites you to rest your head, while the en-suite, with a door made from reused original floor boards, provides a space to freshen up an prepare for your day. Surrounded by wonderful trees, shrubs and garden areas, this holiday home is a bit of a wildlife haven, and also ideal for walkers and water sports fans alike, due to its close proximity to the beach. The area is covered in footpaths and offers plenty of options for walkers, cyclists and outdoor enthusiasts, and there are nature reserves, RSPB sanctuaries and seal spotting opportunities within easy reach too. When you’re in the mood for an evening tipple or meal out, you can find a handful of pubs, such as Poachers Pocket, The Lighthouse Inn Walcott, and many more in the seaside town of Mundesley, or inland in the market town of North Walsham. Other towns and villages worth mentioning are Overstrand, Aylsham, a little further afield, Cromer and Sheringham, the latter a delight for golfers and steam train enthusiasts. Of course, a trip to Norfolk wouldn’t be complete without a visit to The Broads National Park - another perfect destination for lovers of natural beauty. With so much to see and do in the area, enjoy a stunning base at The Little Hay Barn.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
