Barn Drift is a remarkably spacious and stunning conversion of a 18th century barn overlooking the sea, situated on a farm that has been in the owner's family for generations. It is situated above Cley marshes and has uninterrupted views over the beautiful Glaven Valley to one side and the sea to the other. Three historic churches and Blakeney Point can be seen from the garden. Barn Drift is ideally situated for many varied walks either to the beach, bird watching or the pub for lunch, or to the village deli for ice creams and smoke house for fish. The property has been sympathetically restored to an exceptionally high standard, to provide an elegant, contemporary, extremely spacious, and comfortable home. Totally surrounded by fields, Barn Drift stands in its own expansive grounds, within which are three sheltered walled gardens accessed directly from the house. Barn Drift is the perfect place to enjoy with friends and family for a big occasion or peaceful weekend. Weddings and civil ceremonies can now be held in this beautiful property please contact us for more details View Our YouTubeVideo
