Location description from owner

The East Anglia region

Norfolk Broads - Britain’s largest protected wetland has similar status to a national park, mixing wildlife and natural beauty with leisure. The inland waterways of the broads cover a huge area – well worth hiring a boat for a day or half day and exploring the area.

“Brill ! Place to stay”

Reviewed 24 Aug 2012

We have just got back from a great holiday .Visted lots of lovely places ,Pete had a great time fishing every night .The Old Pig Barn was very good had all you needed and more.

“Excellent accommodation in a very peaceful setting.”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2011

If you enjoy fishing the Old Pig Barn is ideal - just a two minute stroll from your front door. We managed to fish at least once every day of our stay - due to the excellent weather we had. You will certainly sleep well as it is so quiet yet only a five minute walk to the local shop and pub. Many pubs within a 10-15 drive.
