About this location

The East Anglia region

The famous Broads, the wild and wonder-filled beaches, the huge skies: Norfolk is a remote and inspiring corner of England, just a couple of hours from London. This flat-as-a-pancake county is filled with historical houses and wild countryside, and criss-crossed with waterways. It also has perhaps the most fascinating, breathtaking and romantic coastline in the country.

Old Hunstanton

Holme next-the-Sea has its own pub, 'The White Horse' which is newly refurbished and just a short walk from Lavender Barn. The pub has a traditional open fire place and serves good quality food and drink.

Outside of Holme next-the-Sea we would also recommend:

The Lifeboat Inn, Thornham - The Lifeboat Inn on the North Norfolk Coast has been trading since the 16th Century - The Inn's original character has been carefully preserved throughout. This wonderful country pub contains several unique areas such as our very popular AA rossetted restaurant, the friendly and welcoming lounge with a lovely open fireplace, the bright and warming conservatory and our traditional, history soaked bar.

The Orange Tree, Thornham - The Orange Tree is a contemporary dining pub, located in the centre of Thornham. It has recently been listed in the top 20 of all dining pubs in the UK by Eat Out Magazine, and is now recognised as one of the best places to eat in North Norfolk. The food is all from locally sourced produce and served in an al fresco dining area or alternatively in large garden area. There is also a children's playground, perfect for warm summer afternoons and evenings.

The Coach House, Thornham - This is the sister pub to The Lifeboat Inn. The Old Coach House is a country pub with a mediterranean style. It offers 2 bar areas with tables and sofas, a lounge and a Pizza Pie restaurant. Outside is a large patio area offering extensive seating in a delightful south facing sun trap where you can sit and enjoy watching the world go by. There is also a rear patio area with garden furniture, patio heaters and table umbrellas. There is also a children's play area.

The Yurt, Drove Orchards, Thornham - This is a truly uniquie and new concept based in round semi-permanent tent with coned roof that provides a warm welcoming environment. The food is simple and locally sourced and reasonably priced.

The Hoste Arms, Burnham Market - The Hoste Arms is a 17th Century Coaching Inn situated on the village green in the village of Burnham Market or 'Chelsea-Next-the-Sea' as it is commonly known these days. The Hoste offers a fine dining experience along with the traditional pub element and areas to relax and enjoy afternoon tea.

The White Horse, Brancaster Staithe - The White Horse is situated on the marshland at Brancaster Staithe, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty and the restaurant offer outstanding views over the Marshes. There is an extensive menu of local cuisine with seafood specialities and seasonal shellfish.


North Norfolk is famous for its long, white sandy beaches such as those at Holkham, Wells and Brancaster - the setting for pop videos, movies and lots of happy family days out. The wide beaches are washed by safe shallow waters and are perfect for sunbathers, swimmers and those looking for plenty of space to play.

The beach at Holme next-the-Sea provides a beautiful area for walking and forms part of the Norfolk Coast Path. The path forms part of Peddars Way Walk and leads to Hunstanton in one direction and Thornham in the other.

Further along the coast, Mundesley is a 'Blue Flag' beach where children can paddle safely in tidal pools and the pebbly beach at Sheringham has also won a Blue Flag award for its cleanliness.

As you drive along the North Norfolk coast road you are bound to discover your own favourite beach.

Hunstanton and its Beach is famous for its striped cliffs and is otherwise known as Sunny Hunny. The beach and cliffs face west which means they capture the sunshine and are the perfect spots for viewing some spectacular sunsets.

The shallow beach runs for two miles along the coast to Brancaster and the tide can go out a mile, allowing rock pools to appear around the groynes.

"Too many disappointments"

We had a week at Lavender Barn in August. It's a very expensive house to rent, almost £3000 in the high season, so naturally we had quite high expectations. It's presented as child fri… More

Thank you for your email and subsequent review on Tripadvisor. It is through feedback from guests that we can strive to continue to provide the high standard of self-catering holiday accommodation our guests expect from us. Please accept my apologies for the delay in responding to your email, the owner was on holiday when you email was received into the office.
I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed your week at Lavender Barn despite the weather not being favourable during your stay, and pleased to hear that you enjoyed the spacious accommodation that Lavender Barn provides. The hall area is a lovely space for all the family to socialise in, with other sitting rooms being provided should you require some relaxation time, including the spacious sun room. Lavender Barn also benefits from 2 lovely gardens one with an open fire area for nights under the stars and an undercover BBQ area.
Lavender Barn has 2 fully equipped kitchens, during the summer months the need may arise for the AGA to be switched off as the excessive heat build-up makes the property uncomfortably hot during the summer months. We do advise this in our Terms and Conditions of booking, this decision is not made lightly and is purely made on the principle of our guests being comfortable in our cottage and follows previous feedback we have received from numerous guests.
We do provide free Wi-Fi in all of our property's, the router that has been installed in Lavender Barn is new this year and was an upgraded version from TalkTalk who recommended that this would be the best option given the size of the property and its location. I know that when we last reviewed our broadband this was the best option, as we are very much dependent on the cabling being available in the area. We do monitor availability of better products as part of our ongoing management of the property. I am not aware of any upgrades to the cabling at present, unfortunately small villages such as Holme-next-the-sea are not normally first on the list for these upgrades.

All fixtures and fittings in Lavender Barn are purchased with the comfort of our guests in mind. The bed in the Sandringham Room is relatively new and was brought for the recommendation of comfort. I am disappointed to hear that you did not find this the case, we have not received any other comments regarding this.

As part of our ongoing commitment to high standards we are reviewed once a year by Visit England, and I am pleased to confirm that we have once again been awarded 5 star gold award with recognition to us meeting the criteria for Walker Welcome Scheme, Cyclists Welcome Scheme, and Families Welcome Scheme.

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay. These have been taken note of and where necessary, changes will be made. I am pleased to know that despite these you had a lovely week.

Original Email from Reviewer:-
“Just a quick note to say that we could not find any feedback forms at Lavender Barn so I am emailing instead. We had a lovely week despite the weather and very much enjoyed the space, especially the hallway and open plan living area and the lovely garden.
A few niggles as well -
Not being able to use the Aga was very disappointing, especially since the oven in the back kitchen was less than brilliant - door doesn't shut properly. We are a family of keen cooks and the Aga was one of the reasons we chose the house.
Poor Wi-Fi which was a problem given that at least 2 people had to link to their offices, and I understand that this can easily be addressed by having a better WIFI package.
Need for a landline given the lack of mobile phone reception so that the housekeeper who I left a message with could not get back to me and sent out a plumber for the dishwasher needlessly.
Mattress in the master bedroom is a disaster area - very soft and uncomfortable.
We found the signs obtrusive and would question the need for them, really interfered with the advice to make yourself at home! If the many files/bits of information were simplified and made more user friendly, the necessary info could just be included there. “

"One of the best places we have stayed in..."

We stayed at Lavender Barn for a long weekend. The barn is amazing, the rooms are generously sized and nicely furnished, particularly the very comfortable lounges. The galleried dining room is a great space for entertaining, or just chilling out with the paper and a cup of coffee.

The gardens are especially nice and fully enclosed so the kids can run around safely. The outdoor fire place was great in the evening, coupled with a few glasses of wine. Although the house is close to the road, traffic noise was not an issue and we found it very peaceful and relaxing.

Overall, we found the property to be even better than we were expecting and made for a memorable weekend. We will definately go back again.
