A beautiful barn conversion that showcases its character with beams and vaulted ceilings, Orchard Barn is set within a quiet, rural landscape and offers quintessential single-storey living. The open-plan living area features a huge picture window that overlooks unspoilt countryside – keep a look out for the resident Barn Owl! Luxuriously appointed, the barn has plenty of room for the whole family to unwind, relax and experience a different pace of life. A unique feature of Orchard Barn is the addition of the Showman’s Wagon, which can be booked for a further two guests in the summer months. Located next to Orchard Barn, it offers the exceptional experience of sleeping under the stars - what could be more magical than that?

Sisland is a small, peaceful hamlet that offers the peace and tranquillity of rural living whilst being within easy reach of the numerous attractions that Norfolk and Suffolk have to offer. The Broads National Park with 125 miles of inland waterways and channels is nearby, hire a boat, go on a canoe nature safari or find a riverside bank for the perfect picnic setting. Sisland Carr, the beautiful Woodland Trust bluebell wood is a short walk away from the barn and there are plenty of cycle routes around the area too. Being not far from the Norfolk/Suffolk border, there are plenty of charming market towns to discover – Beccles, which is set on the River Waveney, is just a short drive away and the ideal place from which to hire a boat. The east-coast beaches of Norfolk are within easy reach, sandy and under-populated even in the summer, they are a great discovery. The beach at Winterton-on-Sea is dog-friendly all year, as is Happisburgh with its 18th Century lighthouse. Norwich, the capital of the county, is well worth a visit with its two Cathedrals, Castle Museum, galleries, award-winning restaurants and, of course, theatres and cinemas too.
We particularly enjoyed the lovely outdoor seating areas. Provision for our dog was extremely thoughtful and there was a really useful collection of walking and cycling maps and guides to the area. Some might not like the narrow lanes on approach to the house, however once there you have super rural views. Meal and wine in the fridge on arrival most welcome!
This property should really be rated 5 star. Kitchen and beds are absolutely top quality.
