This superbly presented thatched barn is something very special and goes above and beyond to deliver a luxurious holiday in tranquil surroundings. Impressive in both its stature and interior décor, the barn is beautifully styled and has its own state of the art gym room as well as a mezzanine entertainment area with snooker/billiards/pool table and bar area. This overlooks the fabulous vaulted, beamed living room, an enormous space featuring an entertainment centre including Bluesound HD wireless music streaming and an eco-friendly flame effect electric heater; doors from this room lead out onto the terrace and offer views of the countryside beyond. The kitchen is beautifully equipped with some luxe touches such as an American fridge-freezer with ice maker and a separate wine fridge. The high end living continues on the upstairs floor with sumptuous bedrooms. There is a king-size in the master with an open walk-in shower and the flexibility of two further bedrooms with zip and link or twin bed options - choose what suits your party best; all beds are Hypnos.  The family bathroom with a built-in television and underfloor heating completes the picture to ensure all creature comforts are provided. The location of the barn is the perfect get-away experience; stay home and relax on one of the garden sunbeds to dream the day away or venture out to the stunning east coast beaches, The Broads National Park or enjoy a cultural day out in the city of Norwich – all are within easy reach.

Clippesby village sits under the big open skies that Norfolk is so famous for and its location close to the east coast beaches and within The Broads National Park, means that you have the best of both worlds on your doorstep. The landscape is relatively flat and makes fantastic cycling country, lying as it does between National Cycle Routes 4 and 5 and there is plenty to see and do in the area. The coast hosts some beautiful sandy beaches, the nearest being Winterton-on-Sea and Horsey. At Horsey get up close and personal with the resident seal colony and if you are visiting in the winter, the seal pups will melt your heart. The Broads National Park boasts 125 miles of inlets and waterways to explore, seek out the Canoe Man who will take you in a kayak to explore some of the quieter reaches of the river systems – a perfect escape from your everyday world, or enjoy a guided wildlife trip on a larger boat at nearby Horsey Mere. Car enthusiasts will enjoy a visit to Caister Castle Car Collection in the summer months, one of the largest privately owned collections in the country. The children will enjoy taking to the raised walkways at Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens for a unique view of its Asian animal inhabitants or an outing to the resident Hippodrome Circus in Great Yarmouth. For walkers, Weaver’s Way is easily accessible with plenty of circular routes within it if you are not planning the whole route, which runs from Cromer to Great Yarmouth. Spoilt for choice, this is a great part of Norfolk, come and discover it for yourself, you won’t regret it.
