We are delighted to welcome Avocet Barn back onto our website and doubly delighted that the charming new owner has given it a completely new look. Always a favourite, we are sure this spacious barn will delight guests old and new with its stylish interior design and great position just outside the historic village of Binham and a short drive from the coast.
The bedrooms are all on the ground floor and comprise a spacious master bedroom with TV and DVD and en-suite bathroom. There is another double bedroom with TV and en-suite shower room and two twin rooms, one large and one small, sharing a separate shower room. All the beds are new or have new super comfy mattresses in the case of the metal bedsteads and the owner has sourced lovely carpets, furniture and accessories to complete the look.
Also on the ground floor is a useful utility room with washing machine and tumble drier and plenty of room for a dog bed for our discerning canine guests! We are happy to accept a well behaved dog at Avocet Barn but would like to stress that our ‘house rules ‘ regarding dogs must be adhered to so do talk to us if you would like more details.
An open tread staircase leads up to a wonderful first floor living area. This superb, sociable space, light and airy and with a vaulted ceiling , contains a well equipped kitchen, dining area and three sofas gathered around a wood burning stove. There is a cupboard of games and Freesat TV with plenty of DVD’s to watch for cosy evenings in around the fire and free wifi so you can keep in touch with the outside world!
The kitchen has good quality wooden units under a granite work surface including a double range style cooker with gas hobs, dishwasher, large fridge/freezer, microwave etc. There is plenty of white crockery, glasses and cutlery and a really good range of kitchen utensils so guests can take advantage to experiment with the great array of locally sourced foods available in nearby towns and villages.
The owner has gone to great lengths to ensure that guests will be delighted with their stay at Avocet Barn and has had the pale oak floors and old beams above extensively renovated to show them to their best. She has found some wonderfully quirky items of furniture such as the cowhide ‘mooo’ dining chairs and lovely accessories complement the soft colour scheme that runs through the house.
Outside there is parking for 2 to 3 cars. There is a small courtyard at the front of the property with table and chairs and a delightful large garden to the rear, this garden is secure for dogs and children and is a real sun trap.again with table and chairs so guests can enjoy alfresco living at all times of the day. There are also numerous beautiful walks accessible directly from the barn.
Avocet Barn is in a superb central position in the area. Away from the hustle and bustle, but within a few miles of the popular coastal villages of North Norfolk, the award winning beaches at Wells and Holkham and the superb market towns of Holt and Burham Market. It is also well placed for trips to places such as the Pensthorpe Nature Reserve (the home of BBC’s Springwatch program) the historical religious village of Little Walsingham or a fun day out at Fakenham Races (Horse and Camel racing!) to name just a few.
Do book early to avoid disappointment as we are certain Avocet will be even more popular with its stunning new look.
