A 15 minute walk down a quiet lane at the side of the property will take you to the pretty village of Trunch which has a shop/post office and The Crown, a pub having 3 to 4 guest beers and bar snacks.Norwich and the Norfolk Broads are just 30 minutes away by car. Alternatively you could drive up the coast to our many picturesque towns and villages, such as Cromer, Sheringham and Wells. The Norfolk Wildlife Trust reserve at Cley is a must for birdwatchers. Dogs are not allowed on the reserve but are permitted on the footpaths around the reserve and of course on the beach.

Location description from owner
The East Anglia region
A short drive away there are many places to visit, including Blickling Hall and park, eight miles away, where you can explore the home of Ann Boleyn, and walk around the picturesque lake, before taking refreshments in the Buckinghamshire Arms, a wonderful pub/restaurant, serving excellent food and ale.
About twenty miles away, the (up)market town of Holt, offers excellent shopping facilities and hostelries. Further afield, you can visit Holkham Hall, a massive Palladian structure, with grounds and lakes, which is adjacent to the road that takes you to Holkham Beach, very famous for its massive beach, with the sea in the distance, and the inland boundary of pines, where the Queen Mother had her lodge/summerhouse (still there) used during visits to Sandringham (incidentally about 1.5 hours away).
Or, closer to home, you can visit Felbrigg Hall, again with its own lake and beautiful walks, only 5 miles away; or visit Cromer or Sheringham, with its war museum and beach-side town, about 8 and 12 miles away respectively.
In the other direction, a 20-minute drive will take you to Stalham, the start of the Norfolk Broads. For those of you who have boating experience, it may be possible to hire a day boat here. This part of the Broads is the most beautiful, with the river Ant tracking through heavily treed avenues, on the way to Barton Broad, a very large lake, eventually taking you on to Horning and Ludham. Turn to port (left) before the Broad, and you will enter Stalham, or Sutton, where the Sutton Staithe pub/restaurant offers real ales and food. Beautiful to sit in the paved front garden, overlooking the river, on a sunny day!
Great Yarmouth is about 40 minutes away, where you can "enjoy" our local Blackpool!!
Or, you can take a day-trip into Norwich (bus service on our doorstep, or take the train from North Walsham, five miles away). There you will find a daily market in the centre, which is excellent, and visit museums, the castle, two large malls, the shopping centre, and the local inns.
Mundesley is located some 22 miles north of Norwich, on the north Norfolk coast. It is a traditional family holiday destination, with first class clean beaches with beach huts, and many facilities such as a local museum, crazy themed golf course, three restaurants/pubs, post office, butcher, chemist, greengrocer, bakery, a very good charity shop supporting the local lifeboat, four cafes, a fish and chip shop/burger take-away (excellent), florist, traditional hardware store and hairdressers.
North Walsham is 3 miles away and has 3 large supermarkets and a variety of small shops in the Market Place. It also has one of the largest parish churches in the country - a product of the historic past of the town.
Inland there are many very good dog-walking areas, such as Pigney Woods, a nature reserve (dogs on lead in bird breeding season), Bacton Woods, Weavers Way (along the disused railway line, passing through glorious countryside and lakes), cliff-top walks, overlooking the sea, or just walking the local backroads; for example a mile from our gate to Trunch, which boasts a very good pub with 4 guest ales and a choice of bar snacks.
For the anglers, there is good beach fishing off Mundesley, Trimingham, Happisburgh and numerous other local beaches. Good catches of whiting, cod, bass and flat fish are to be had here.
Or, for the freshwater fanatics, there are a number of local fisheries, which, for a reasonable day ticket, can provide you with the potential to catch a specimen carp, tench or bream. Two fisheries are within a mile of the cottage.

Thank you again Jane for a wonderful relaxing stay at your beautiful dragonfly barn, so relaxing and peaceful just what was needed and the dogs thoroughly enjoyed their stay to. Thank you again will definitely be back xx
“Lovely getaway in Norfolk”
Detached barn was lovely very clean and in a fantastic location. The owners had gone to great trouble to make the cottage cosy with some nice finishing touches. My only criticism is that we weren't there long enough so will be going back.
“warm, cozey, a perfect little paradise”
easy to find because we had a lovely email from the owner we found on arrival a beautiful barn surrounded by beautiful countryside. tea coffee bath towels all set out just like an hotel. the barn was spotless the information provided was perfect.we had a magical two night stay and cannot wait to return
Lovely cottage, very clean and a quiet location. Garden was all enclosed and perfect for our 2 dogs. Owners home is a few meters from the cottage but this wasnt an issue. Ideal for a relaxing weekend! We will stay again.
“Excellent pet friendly cottage”
Dogs loved the beach. The owner Jane very helpful. Location ideal for places to visit. We even took the cat and she loved it too.
We had the best time in this cottage. It is perfectly equipped, warm and cosy. Plenty of country walks and traditional real ale pubs near by. The owners have a micro brewery next to the cottage, so do ask about this. We will return and it is great for a break, whatever the season.
This is a fabulous place to stay if you like us like peace and quiet. With the added bonus of being close to a number of places to visit.We would definitely recommend it to others.
