Holiday Rental House
Approached by a sweeping private driveway leading to Cannister Hall in Toftrees, Great Barn forms part of a small complex of converted Norfolk barns and enjoys lovely open countryside views; the use of a large, communal garden area; and a superb, spacious on-site games room, fitted out with a snooker table, table tennis and table football; as well as a 15m heated indoor swimming pool (please bring your own swimming towels). With the the beautiful North Norfolk coastline only a twenty minute drive away and the nearby market town of Fakenham and all its facilities close by, there really is plenty on offer for all ages, at any time of year. The barn has lots of traditional features - exposed beams, timbers and interior brick walling - as well as all the mod cons and creature comforts to creat...Approached by a sweeping private driveway leading to Cannister Hall in Toftrees, Great Barn forms part of a small complex of converted Norfolk barns and enjoys lovely open countryside views; the use of a large, communal garden area; and a superb, spacious on-site games room, fitted out with a snooker table, table tennis and table football; as well as a 15m heated indoor swimming pool (please bring your own swimming towels).

The barn has lots of traditional features - exposed beams, timbers and interior brick walling - as well as all the mod cons and creature comforts to create a very comfortable and well-equipped holiday property. There is a large wood burning stove and modern wall mounted heaters in each room will ensure your stay is warm and cosy. The excellent ratio of three bedrooms, two modern bathrooms, plus a downstairs cloakroom will suit families or couples looking to enjoy a break in this pretty part of rural North Norfolk.

Summer family break in Norfolk
Quiet summer staycation base for adventuring around North Norfolk. Great cottage, good facilities well kept. The grounds include a reasonably well sized pool and games room with pool, snooker, table tennis and table football. The cottage is modern and clean. The rooms are large enough to accommodate my three boys and give my wife space to escape :-) Three bathrooms finished well. Wi-Fi and free sat. They have a sky box and I assume if you brought your own subscription card you could get all the channels (Sky + would need a paired box but for straight forward viewing it should work fine) which I would have brought if I’d read this first 😎 Brita filter kettle is in the kitchen but without a filter. The water is very hard so I would suggest bringing one if you have them. The instruction book left by the proprietors was exhaustive and included great tips on where to get food. The recommended pizza place delivered good dinner on Monday evening when the rest of Norfolk seemed to be closed - note a lot of the attractions nearby close Monday. A lot to do around and about from seal trips, zoos, beach and a beer shop. Only reason it’s not a five star rating is the lack of dish washer. On vacation I like to take it easy. Cleaning the dishes in a small kitchenette is a chore I could do without. Other than that highly recommended.
