Lovely conversion of the old farm shire horse stables.

This is a beautiful spacious rustic Barn conversion, which retains all the old beams and character of the old Shire Horse stables, and is situated next door to Threshers Barn.

They are completely self contained with separate private space.

However, both properties can be rented together, and used as one. Between them they can sleep up to 10 people.

Situated right on the edge of miles of heathland and woodland it is a an ideal base for walkers, birdwatchers, and country lovers.

In winter light the woodburner, and get cosy. In summer throw open the patio door and let the sunshine in !

Peace and tranquillity is on offer ! Sip a glass of wine whilst sitting outside in your private garden, and watch the sun go down over the heath.

Step outside your door and straight onto the bridle path which will lead you into the heart of this glorious heathland, which is also a designated SSSI ( site of special scientific interest. ) Wildlife abounds, with Deer, Foxes, Badgers and Barn Owls. You may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the protected species such as the Blue Studded Butterfly, Night Jars and Glow Worms.

At certain times of year a small herd of wild ponies graze the heath.

Shire Horse Barn and Threshers Barn are in an idyllic location, semi-rural, but ideally and centrally placed for the Coast, the Broads and Norwich ( about 20 mins drive from each) . It is also very close to National Trust properties such as Blickling and Felbrigg ( about 10 mins drive) and only about 45 minutes from Holkham, and an hour from Sandringham.

The local market town of Aylsham is just 5 minutes away, and has supermarket, doctors surgery etc.

The famous boutique shopping town of Holt is a short 20 minute drive.

Shire Horse Barn has 2 bedrooms, one double on the mezzanine floor, with balcony overlooking lounge, and one twin on the ground floor, plus a family bathroom, with bath & shower. A spacious kitchen and open plan lounge/diner, with woodburner. Digital TV with freeview/ DVD & ipod dock & WiFi. Plenty of parking, and an inner secure communal hallway for storage of bicycles etc.
