Granary 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 unbridged ford on the river and the gentle rise to the Hill. From the luxurious comfort of the first floor sitting room, where the backdrop of rustic clunch walls sets off crisp modern furnishings, you can gaze out across calm green fields and grazing sheep. This huge open plan space extends past a central island kitchen to a large airy glazed dining room with more fabulous views down the valley. In this barn, country meets city by combining designer details with vernacular building techniques.

The East Anglia region

Wherever you are in Norfolk the unspoilt North Norfolk coast is never very far away and the variety of landscape in this part of East Anglia is remarkable, all nestling under wonderful big blue skies: from sandstone cliffs to saltmarsh; from sandy beach to shingle; from muddy creek banks to crashing breakers – all to explore from Hunstanton to Sheringham and round to Happisburgh.

Fakenham

There’s much to do for all ages and interests: beautiful beaches for picnics, swimming or just 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 visit more traditional seaside resorts like Hunstanton and Cromer.

You 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; 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 where you may hire a motor cruiser, traditional sailing boat or take a guided tour in this wonderfully unspoilt nature reserve, rich in wildlife.
