Hall Farm Barn is in an idyllic location being close to both the Broads and the beautiful East Coast beaches. It is private and self contained and provides very comfortable accommodation for 2 or 4 people with a stunning large sitting room with a big wood-burner. The kitchen is well equipped with an electric hob/oven and a table and chairs for 4 people. It has a twin bedded room upstairs next to the bathroom and a double bedroom off the sitting room area (a heavy curtain provides complete privacy).
Outside there is ample parking for 2 cars or more and a private courtyard garden to relax in. Also a water meadow with 300 metres of riverbank and guests are welcome to fish during the coarse fishing season. During the Summer months there are 2 benches by the river to sit on to enjoy the idyllic surroundings! Watching the barn owl is a special experience! Alternatively why not bring your own canoe or hire one locally. Local bicycle hire is available and it is a wonderful way to explore the wonderful local countryside.
There are glorious walks from the barn for both walkers and dog walkers. You can also take a gentle 15 minute stroll directly from the barn across the fields to the Goat Inn at Skeyton who give a warm welcome, are children and pet friendly, and also serve good food and an excellent local beer as well! There is also horse-riding in the local area and golf courses too.

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."

Buxton is our main village with a general store/post office, fish and chip shop, and 1 pub, 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)
