The East Anglia / Norfolk region
Norfolk is a truly beautiful part of England and an ideal location for holidaying. It offers glorious beaches and the wonderful unique Norfolk Broads.
A perfect place to walk, walk your dog, cycle, fish, canoe, play golf at Royal Cromer or Sheringham, go horse riding or just to relax.
There are also many special places to visit such as Sandringham, Houghton Hall, Holkham Hall, Blickling Hall, Felbrigg Hall and Norwich Cathedral.
There is just not enough time to do everything in a week!
The Norwich / Buxton, Norwich area
Hall Farm Barn lies within an idyllic and tranquil location close to the River Bure with its own 300 metre stretchof riverbank. It overlooks open fields and Lamas church.
"The River Bure is the longest of the Norfolk Broads Rivers. The Bure rises near Aylsham which was the original head of navigation. Nowadays, the head of navigation is 10 miles downstream at Coltishall Bridge. After Aylsham Lock and Burgh Bridge, the River Bure passes through Buxton Lamas, Coltishall, Belaugh, Wroxham, Horning, past St. Benets Abbey, Acle, Stokesby, along the northern border of the Halvergate Marshes, through Runham and Great Yarmouth where it meets Breydon Water and flows into the sea at Gorleston." (source: Tour Norfolk)
Buxton is our main village with a general store, fish and chip shop, a post office and 2 pubs, but there is a wider range of shops in the market town of Aylsham (3 miles).
"Aylsham is an attractive market town, situated beside the upper reaches of the River Bure. Aylsham has an unspoilt market place, surrounded by 18th century houses, reflecting the towns prosperity from the cloth trade during that period.
The 15th century church of St. Michael dominates views of Aylsham and it is claimed it was built by John O'Gaunt (who is also pictured on the town sign).
Aylsham is the Northern terminus of the Bure Valley Railway that runs to Wroxham. Aylsham has plenty facilities including interesting shops, pubs and tea-rooms. Nearby Blickling Hall is a magnificent Jacobean house, garden and park, famed for its long gallery, fine tapestries, paintings and rare books. Blickling Hall is also home to the ghost of Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII's second queen." (source: Tour Norfolk)

We arrived late at night to find everything just as discussed + more. The home is larger than the photos show, beds are very comfy and the rest easy to figure out etc its the perfect country side private barn get away. Lots of helpful notes from Tessa in her guide book where to visit etc. Tessa was super friendly, very professional just one quick catch up over the fence to make sure we were enjoying ourselves...the rest of the time its was just like our own home. The area is very pretty and the river walk fun with the Goat Inn not far - food pretty good. I would recommend a stay to anyone! Thanks again for great stay. Tim

We stayed at Hall Farm Barn with our 13 year old for a week in August. On arrival we were given a very warm welcome by Tessa & Trisham. We found a pint of milk, tea bags, coffee and delicious cookies, with a vase freshly-picked flowers on the kitchen table. There was a huge amount of information on things to do in the area and Tessa had gone to the trouble of displaying leaflets on activities that a family with a teenager might enjoy, such as cycle hire and kayaking. The owners have found just the right balance of being available without being intrusive.
The barn has bags of character and is furnished in a comfortable, homely manner. The WiFi was an essential for our teenager! Outside there is a courtyard with seating exclusively for the use of guests and you are welcome to wander around the grounds down to the River Bure.
The location is rural and quiet, but only a short drive from bustling Wroxham and pretty coastal villages. Our best day was walking into nearby Buxton to collect a family canoe hired from the CanoeMan, paddling slowly down river to Coltishall then catching the steam train back to Buxton.
We strongly recommend both Hall Farm Barn and the Norfolk Broads for a thoroughly enjoyable holiday.

My wife and I took our black Labrador away for the first time and had a wonderful week at Hall Farm Barn. The owners were very welcoming and helpful; the house was spacious, well equipped and clean.
A highlight for us was the beautiful location by the River Bure and the abundant wildlife (including 2 barn owls hunting during the day)
