Whisk your special person off to this gorgeous barn set in the Norfolk countryside yet within easy reach of Norwich. Sleeping just two guests, the one-bedroom hideaway is situated on the fringes of the village of Dunston, 5 miles from the historic city. Exquisitely styled, and with a covered veranda as well as a lawned garden, this is the perfect place for a romantic getaway, especially for couples wishing to bring a four-legged friend.

Step inside the single-storey barn to discover an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, with a vaulted and beamed ceiling at his heart. Return from your trips out to relax in here in front of the Smart TV, catching up on your favourite boxsets perhaps, or to take turns at preparing delicious dinners for two in the kitchen area. This stylish space has everything you need to help you whip up tasty dishes with the fresh Norfolk produce you have bought from farm shops and markets. There is a separate WC as well as access to your sumptuous king-size bedroom with its en-suite shower room. Spend relaxing sunny afternoons out in your private garden and evenings gazing up at the starry skies over a bottle of wine. Those who enjoy a knockabout might also like to play tennis on the shared court.

Discover plenty of country walks right from your doorstep. Dunston Common, with its bluebell woods, is just over 0.5 miles away. Make your way into Norwich to explore the Lanes, a series of cobbled streets with independent shops and eateries. Enjoy the city’s ancient market, as well as its high street shopping areas and centres and its many leisure facilities. Take time out to see the castle and cathedral while you are here too. Venture 5 miles to Whitlingham Country Park and the start of the Norfolk Broads.

Holly Barn is an absolute gorgeous cottage in a stunning location. The garden and surrounding land are lovely and the accompanying wildlife is magical. The hosts were great. It is situated close to amenities and a not far from Norwich and surrounding areas like beaches. Horsey beach is a great spot to see seals.

From the minute we walked into the property we felt at home. The welcome pack was totally unexpected and included more than you would usually expect. The kitchen area is superb and fully equipped. WiFi worked well and the bedroom and ensuite area were clean and very comfortable. Our dog loved the freedom of the attached paddock and there are lotRead mores of dog friendly places to go. Recommend the Marsh Harrier which is about 10 minutes away and where our dog was made welcome in the bar area. Food is excellent and reasonably priced. Further afield there is Cromer and Great Yarmouth - both worth a visit. All in all a great week away so highly recommended. Hide

What an excellent place to stay, especially if you have a dog. The hosts were really friendly and helpful. The accommodation provided everything you need and the enclosed paddock was a real bonus. A great location too, with easy access to major routes, that help get anywhere, and close to Norwich if you wish to visit there.

Beautifully presented little barn in a fantastic location. Two lovely restaurants within walking distance. Easy access into Norwich, to The Broads and seaside. Secure paddock for dogs to roam freely and perfect garden/woodland to explore. Hosts were very welcoming. Well be back!
