Runham sits in a unique landscape 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 area is relatively flat and makes fantastic cycling country, try your hand at The Broads Explorer loop. The coast hosts some beautiful sandy beaches; Winterton-on-Sea and Horsey are less than 20 minutes away. 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. Spoilt for choice, this is a great part of Norfolk, come and discover it for yourself, you won’t regret it.


The Chestnut Barn had an amazing welcome pack. It is very clean and bright and we loved the upside down living arrangement. The kitchen is well equipped. The outside space at the front is very well kept.

Previous Customer,

Lovely accommodation, very clean and comfortable, everything you needed was there, loved the area so quiet and peaceful, but only 10 mins away from popular sea side resorts, would love to return.

Mrs P,

We enjoyed our stay at Chestnut Barn which was beautifully furnished and had very comfortable super-king beds. A small hamper of locally produced treats was a great treat for us, the kitchen was well equipped too. The garden was quite small for a property of this size so our spaniels were a bit disappointed!

Mrs T,

Chestnut Barn was a very pleasant place to stay. A good size and a comfortable space.

Mr H,

We had a lovely stay at the Chestnut Barn. A perfect place to unwind and take in the Norfolk sights. The Barn is beautifully furnished. We spent our evenings by the fire in the living room, while our dog Temmy lounged in his Chesterfield dog bed. The garden is beautiful and appropriately enclosed so that we were confident Temmy couldn't wander out. I fully recommend this property for families looking to get away for a few days.

Ms C,
