Property code: OC-1733

Hidden in a peaceful spot in the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, escape reality at this romantic barn conversion retaining much of its charming original features, surrounded by unspoilt Norfolk countryside steeped in centuries of history that’ll make you feel as though you’ve stepped through the pages of a novel.

No better remedy for soothing weary walking toes and paws is the underfloor heating beneath the original brick floor throughout this light-filled barn conversion, boasting a warmth from its high vaulted ceilings, exposed brickwork and timber frames and rustic colour palette. As the evening draws in, unwind on the sofa beside the roaring wood burner before grabbing all your local produce to rustle up a feast in the contemporary farmhouse-style kitchen/diner to dine long into the evening seated around the dining table. When you can’t resist the call of bedtime, retire to the beautifully presented en-suite bedroom for a well-earned rest before tomorrow’s adventure. Soak up the fresh countryside air by dining alfresco in the enclosed courtyard patio with some superb sunsets and clear starry skies as your backdrop.

The village of Langham is nestled in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, boasting wonderful walks through country lanes, in the shadow of stunning listed architecture, that you can enjoy on foot, on two wheels or with four-legged friends; join up with the trail leading to Cley-next-the-Sea (3.5 miles) to discover the Cley Marshes, offering some of the country’s best birdwatching hides. For a traditional bucket and spade day at the seaside, head east to Cromer (15.5 miles) or head 2 miles north to Blakeney to jump aboard a boat trip to Blakeney Point to spot the resident seal colonies. The wonderful Georgian town of Holt, home to independent boutiques and art galleries, can be reached within 5.5 miles.

Property clean but a little dusty in places. Kitchen equipment a bit basic i:e only one large saucepan and a small milk pan, wobbly handle on kettle lid which could difficult to open.

On arrival, the front gate was very stiff to open and we found out that the top hinge only had one screw holding it on. Therefore, it was not secure for our dog to be left just in this small area. With us both in our 80s we found this a rather daunting issue when trying to keep this heavy gate in place and opening it. On trying to enter the securitRead morey numbers to obtain the front door key we found that the key pad was not working and the key was not secure as the key was easily accessed, we therefore took the key out with us as we felt the cottage was not secure. On using the actual key to get in, we also found the door was warped and the actual key lock did not aline with the door frame. Which in turn meant we had to lift and slam heavily to try to actually secure the locking device. Tap in the kitchen sink moved, it possibly could come adrift. Lovely kitchen, but not a single cupboard to be used for food ( that doesn't need to be refridgerated. All the cupboard space was taken up with equipment. In the bathroom the towel ring next to washbasin was not secure and came off into my wife's hand . Therefore, we think that a general maintenance of the said property should be carried out , especially for security reasons. Hide

Loved this cottage. Very comfortable, cosy and quiet ( got used to 24 hour church bells very quickly.) Just a few things we felt were missing...kitchen scissors, chopping boards and tools for dealing with the log burner. The location was perfect for us. Initial information should include parking instructions, as we arrived to find guests in DavidsRead more Barn in our space. Thankfully, they were lovely people who did move once inside instructions read but it did make for awkward arrival. Overall though, think we may return to Simons Cottage. Hide

Weve enjoyed our stay @ Simons barns and would love to come back, just a couple of points that can be addressed, the dishwasher rail is broken and the upper tray kept coming off, the mattress needs changing as it dips on both sides.

Good overall. Maybe a 9am departure is a little early for some. Also some would be disturbed by the local church clock chiming loudly every 15 mins throughout the night. This can be disturbing and tiring.

The dishwasher did not close easily and banged against the other cupboard - I was worried about breaking it. I do feel that basics should have been left such as tea and coffee and more than two toilet rolls for a weekly stay - this is obviously just my opinion. It felt rather mean to be honest even though we had a very lovely time. The freezer cRead moreompartment of our fridge was completely iced up and could not be used. Hide

Lovely comfortable property in a great location to explore North Norfolk. Only criticism would be need a bit more crockery to fill a dishwasher and think you should provide enough dishwasher tabs and toilet rolls for a week.
