Description

The historic city of Norwich is but a ten minute drive away yet Little Barn nestles in beautiful, unspoilt countryside, a great base from which visitors can enjoy walks in a wildlife conservation area and along Boudicca's Way, riding at the local equestrian school, a pint in a real ale pub and eating at great local restaurants. Other local areas of interest include the site of the Roman town of Venta Icenorum, only a short walk away, and the new country park of Whitlingham Broad, an area of wetland and lakes alongside Norwich's main waterway, the River Wensum, which offers a wide range of outdoor and water-based activities. Upper Stoke is also an ideal base for exploring Norfolks countryside

Location description from owner

The East Anglia region

Norfolk is a beautiful unspoilt county, famous for its big skies, expansive sandy and pebbly beaches, amazing bird-life and seal colonies, The Broads unique environments, fine country houses (including Sandringham and Holkham and Blickling), and not forgetting Norwich. A fine city, one time England's second city, boasting both the fabulous Anglican Cathedral and the more modest and more recent Catholic Cathedral; an imposing Caste Keep which stands proudly centre-stage in the city; the oldest marketplace in England, and a great variety of thriving boutique shops dotted around The Lanes, alongside the usual offerings you would expect of a large regional centre.Culturally Norwich is blessed with The Theatre Royal ,The Playhouse Theatre and Cinema City (an arts cinema that is uber-comfy and shows more than the normal list of block-busters), as well as a number of other interesting venues; hosts a nationally acclaimed festival of arts music and dance for two weeks each May. Not forgetting The Sainsbury Centre on the university campus, with both touring as well as its own internationally important collections.The North Norfolk coast is less than an hour away; as are Southwold and Aldeburgh (for Snape Maltings, Benjamin Britten's magical concert hall) Lots of information at Little Barn. Or just ask me.

Norwich

Apparently the second highest spot in Norfolk. But that's not saying a lot. Though it does mean we get long views.We are in a pretty and accessible area just 10 minutes outside Norwich. From the door you can walk along well-maintained paths to Venta Icenorum, a Romano-British settlement and one-time home to the Iceni. And Boudicca's way, a long-distance path, passes the door.Substantial areas around Little Barn are managed to attract diverse birdlife, and in the acre here at The Old Barns we have tried to encourage bio-diversity in our planting and in the management of the grounds.Stoke Holy Cross boasts two good eating places--The Wildebeest and The Mill. Both a 20 minute walk across the fields.Maps and walking routes available here.

“Idyllic peaceful location”

Reviewed 4 Jul 2014

I stayed at little barn for the weekend, I would say it was as good as some 5 star places I have stayed, nicely appointed quiet, ideal for unwinding , Dulce and her family were very welcoming, and I found it the ideal place to chill and relax.

“A lovely relaxing weekend break”

Reviewed 3 Mar 2014

We've just returned from a lovely break staying at Little barn.The barn is stylishly furnished, located off the beaten track, making it a quiet getaway weekend..Dulcie met us on arrival and we were greated with fresh flowers, milk, bread and a lovelly cake .It was ideal for us as we had friends to visit and wanted to go into the city, Harleston and Diss .We had everything we required for our stay , a beautifully fitted kitchen, comfortable lounge area and the bathroom and bedroom were beautiful. We shall certainly be visiting again. Richard & Chantal Bartlett
