Set in a tranquil village in the heart of Norfolk, this stylishly decorated and beautifully converted barn is a tasteful and relaxing base for enjoying the coast and countryside of this lovely area.

Situated in the tranquil village of Briston, this lovely property is just three miles from the thriving Georgian town of Holt, a popular destination with a great choice of restaurants, tearooms and pubs, as well as a variety of independent shops and art galleries. The Holt Country Park offers 100 acres of woodland to discover. You can take a trip on the North Norfolk Railway, discover the ruins of Baconsthorpe Castle or visit the working watermill at Letheringsett. Fakenham and Walsingham are among the many popular towns and villages nearby. The beautiful Norfolk coast is within easy reach, with plenty of traditional seaside towns to explore including Wells-next-the-Sea, Sheringham and Cromer, all offering stunning beaches and great activities for children.

On entering this tastefully furnished and imaginatively renovated barn conversion, which retains plenty of original features including exposed beams and brickwork, you will find yourself in the spacious and attractive open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with a stunning solid oak staircase forming a central feature from the hall leading to the galleried upstairs bedrooms. The welcoming and comfortable lounge is an ideal space to relax in, with plenty of comfy seating, TV/DVD and CD. Ten guests can dine in style in the beautiful dining area, and you will find the elegantly designed kitchen is fully equipped with an electric AGA-style oven, microwave, washing machine, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. Exploring the ground floor of this beautiful property further you will find a cosy double bedroom, and a wet room complete with shower and WC. Heading up to the first floor, there are two galleried bedrooms: one double and a twin which has an additional pullout bed. There is also a family bathroom with a bath, shower cubicle and WC.

Stepping outside you will find a gravel area to the front of the barn with garden furniture where you can sit back and dine al fresco. Though not enclosed, the whole area is gated from the road. The barn also enjoys the shared use of an enclosed children's play area with a climbing frame and an outside seating area with BBQ. There is ample off-road parking for two cars.
