This charming thatched barn in pretty rural Norfolk offers tranquil accommodation for a couple or a single traveller. Attached to the owner’s cottage in the quiet village of Upton, this one-bedroom offers privacy and a serene atmosphere. Nearby you can stroll to the River Bure (0.5 miles) to observe kingfishers, herons and other wildlife, while at nearby Acle (2.5 miles) and South Walsham (2 miles) you can hire boats to discover the Upton Broads and Marshes by water. This sweet retreat welcomes up to two guests and one dog.

Inside the accommodation, the open-plan living area is a lovely place to unwind together, with panelled wooden walls, a striking striped carpet and French doors leading outside. Perhaps you’ll choose to watch some TV after a busy day out, or relax with a good book. The large dining table is great for a candlelit dinner or meal for one, prepared in the contemporary kitchen which you’ll access via an archway. Up the stairs, a twin bedroom awaits and there’s a Z-bed available for if you have an additional guest. The gorgeous lawned garden will really come into its own in mild weather, where you can sip morning coffee on the patio and eat dinner outside amid the mature plants.

You’ll be in a rural spot 0.5 miles from the nearest pub and shop. For an adventure-packed day out, head to the lively Broadland village of Wroxham and hire a day cruiser or, if you fancy discovering the area by rail, take a scenic journey on the Bure Valley Railway. Keen for a day by the coast? Caister-on-Sea (9 miles) is a large seaside village with unspoilt beaches whereas the larger resort of Great Yarmouth (11 miles) adds amusement parks, a model village and an aquarium to its list of attractions.

We enjoyed staying in this cottage. Spacious, clean and comfortable. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. Milk in the fridge on our arrival and biscuits. The location of the cottage was ideal for sightseeing the area.

In general, first class. However, the banister peters out a few steps before the bottom of the stairs, leaving you with nothing to grab if you trip. The duvets have lost their "loft" and need replacing - we were only barely warm enough at night. Lovely area - nature reserve, miles of meadows along the river, quiet lanes, pub and shop nearby.
