Roe Deer Barn and annexe offer stunning contemporary spaces accommodating up to ten guests, with all five bedrooms having en-suite facilities, which add that extra wow factor. The open plan living area within the barn has a wood burner for those cooler evenings and also a quiet seating area looking over the lake. The barn is one of two newly converted buildings and great care has been taken by the owner to ensure that you have a relaxing stay. The detached annexe which is accessed just across the patio offers the perfect space to escape the hustle and bustle of the barn and provides comfortable seating to sit and unwind with a cuppa whilst taking in the beautiful view.  There is a private patio with garden furniture and a barbecue, the glass screen keeps little ones away from the lake while you can still enjoy the view. On site is a games barn and outdoor play area, great fun for everyone. Shop: 1 mile Pub: within walking distance

Briston is a large village located within North Norfolk just four miles inland from the Georgian town of Holt. There is a pub, two shops, a bakery and a butchers. It’s a great location from which to explore all North Norfolk has to offer. Holt has a lovely range of local shops, a small independent supermarket together with plenty of tea rooms or restaurants offering locally sourced produce. Catch a steam or diesel train along the Poppyline, a coastal track which visits Weybourne and Sheringham. Many of the most wonderful beaches are within a short drive of Roe Deer Barn, go to Wells-next the-Sea and walk along the Quay or visit the vast sandy beach. The popular seaside towns of Sheringham and Cromer make for a great day out for all the family, each having a golf course too! Salthouse and Cley-next-the-Sea are great bird watching locations, you will be spoilt for choice with so many places to discover.

We can't thank you enough for the warmest hospitality you've shown us over the weekend. Your barn is lovely and we have had a wonderful time. This is somewhere we will definitely recommend to others. P.S The extra little touches you provided around the barn were very thoughtful and made this trip that more special.

Had a wonderful three days here at Roe Deer Barn. Everything was perfect from the cake and prosecco to the games room. Every detail was thought of to make for a comfortable stay. Beautiful relaxing surroundings. We will highly recommend to friends and family and will definitely return !!

Sarah M,

The attention to detail was faultless. We had a completely wonderful time.

Geoffrey W,

The property was beautiful, location was extremely peaceful and having the pond, ducks and other wildlife to watch helped make our family stay an excellent experience. The owners were very helpful and friendly; the extra little touches of a victoria sponge, jar of jam and bits and pieces were very welcome. Would have no problem coming back at all and would recommend very highly.

Graham H,

Roe Deer Barn was perfect for our family, including 91 year old with mobility problems. We felt welcomed by the owners,lovely cake on arrival! The pond is a real feature, ducks, moorhen with chicks, swallows dipping and diving and the heron which made regular visits, giving something to watch safely as is behind glass panels on patio and so not accessible. Although this property is semidetached with its sister house Muntjac Barn, we were scarcely aware of other occupants and still felt private. The two would make a splendid pair to rent together for larger groups.

Lesley S,

The property exceeded our expectations. Everything was of top quality. Loved everything about it. We chose the wettest week we could possibly have in June.. but Roe Deer exceeded our expectations in all areas. The living area gave us room to spread out and the window that overlooked the pond was a great favourite with us all. We will miss the ducks and the moorhens. We will never know if the five chicks survived! We have had a great week with fun in the games room too. Thank you for your beautiful barn conversion - we hope to be back.

June P,

We had such an amazing stay at Roe Deer Barn. What a stunning property in a beautiful location. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this beautiful property. We can’t wait to come back.

Jacquie Y,

What a wonderful house. Blessed with glorious weather. Some great days out at Cromer, Sheringham and Roarr. The wet day couldn't dampen our spirits at Wroxham and Salhouse Broad. Wonderfully equipped house that catered for all 3 generations.

Stephen W,

Absolutely perfect. Really enjoyed our Easter break at the gorgeous Roe Deer Barn. Very comfortable and fully equipped!
