The East Anglia / Norfolk region
You can relax and enjoy yourselves in Norfolk.
Norfolk is the safest place in the country, with the lowest crime rate in England, according to Home Office figures (Source: 2009 iQuanta rankings).
The Norfolk Broads - an area of outstanding natural beauty is one of the main attractions of East Anglia.
There is something for everyone to enjoy in the area - from boating, fishing, sailing, walking, cycling, birdwatching.
Wroxham is only 5 miles away and there you can hire a dayboat all year round and there are many restaurants overlooking the broads there.
The Norwich / Old Costessey area
Beech Barn is only 4 miles from Norwich town centre so ideal for what is possibly the best shopping area in the country, (officially rated in the top 10) with 2 large Malls and many small and totally unique shops located in ancient streets.
The Norman Cathedral is one of the finest in England, with its magnificent Cloisters and Cathedral Close.
Norwich Castle a wonderful Norman 900 year old castle, constructed to impress the locals once used as a prison, now a museum, houses several outstanding collections of art, natural history, archeology and historical artifacts, lots for family holidays.
Norwich also has good night life (clubs, bars, pubs etc). Norwich was once famous for having a church for every week in the year and a pub for every day. It had the highest number of pubs per square mile in the UK.
There is always something special on at the theatres (Theatre Royal, The Playhouse, Maddermarket Theatre, The Garage Theatre) and sometimes in the summer there are outside performances.
Fishing lakes are less than 5 minutes walk. There are several golf clubs within 10 mins drive including Costessey Park golf course set in 100 acres of picturesque parkland less than one mile away.

28 Mar 2013
We booked a four night stay to visit family in Taverham & Norwich so location of the barn was perfect for us. We also visited the coast around Happisburgh which was only a short drive away and visited Felbrigg Hall (NT) near Cromer.
Unfortunately the weather was bitterley cold which prevented us from spending much time outdoors so we did not get the opportunity to walk around the village or to Norwich as we had planned. The barn was extremely warm & welcoming to go back to at the end of the day. Comfy bed upstairs and all mod cons in the kitchen.
It was good to have a large screen tv which is rare in a rental property. There is a super outside area for those long hot evenings!
The only moan (a bit petty really) would be the stable door. As we suffered high winds it would have made it easier if the top section was bolted to the lower door.
Owners Tom & Rita have been great with communications from the booking through to when we left and in no way were they intrusive.
