Old Beans Cottage is an 18th century former washhouse which has been converted into a studio cottage, furnished to an exceptional standard. This period dwelling overlooks water meadows and woodland. It is not unusual to see barn owls and snipe - the owner has erected various bird boxes to encourage nesting. Set down a country lane, the cottage enjoys privacy, peace and quiet. This is a great location for a holiday. Shop: 2/3 miles dependent on direction Pub: 0.25 miles.

East Barsham is a small village nestling in quiet, rolling countryside close to the small market town of Fakenham and with excellent access to the North Norfolk Coast at Wells and Holkham. The area is renowned for its bird watching opportunities with Cley and Blakeney easily accessible. National Cycle routes 1 & 2 will take you through some super countryside and villages. With the coast so close and countryside on the doorstep this is a good location if you enjoy walking. The village pub, The Barsham Arms, is within easy walking distance of the cottage. Restaurants, shopping facilities and farmers markets can be found at Fakenham.
Our second visit as we were so impressed last year we decide to come back again
What a beautiful cottage and location.This was an ideal base to explore the coast,rural countryside,historical sites and nature reserves!PERFECT!
Second visit to this cottage best location yet in Norfolk
One of the nicest properties we have stayed in. Warm, welcoming and beautifully presented with friendly owner
Fantastic cottage in a very good location.
Though compact, Old Beans Cottage is finished to a high standard and very well equipped. This was my second stay and I would highly recommend it. It is convenient for the majority of the North Norfolk coast reserves and fantastic wildlife that can be seen from the patio.
Owl highlight: She flew right up to the window and we looked each other in the eyes. I think her and I have a special bond now!
Another wonderful stay, must be our 4th or 5th! Barn owls very obliging in posing this time. Counted 30 species of wildlife in the cottage environs alone! Martin as usual the perfect host - here's to next year!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Old Beans Cottage and hope to visit again in the future.
We have had a n enjoyable week walking, cycling and eating. The wildlife at Old Beans has been in abundance. Hope to be back in the Autumn.
Had a great week - even the weather was good! Ideal place for birders to stay for seeing the owls, red kites, kestrel and buzzards.Best cottage we have stayed in in Norfolk, home from home. We tell our friends about it
Had a wonderful week. Thrilling to see the barn owls and the great variety of birds at nearby reserves. Cottage has everything we needed and is very clean - a lovely place to stay. Great walks and cycle rides straight from the door.
Wonderful cottage. A pleasure to stay there. Already booked again for 2018.
What a magical place! Barn owls gave a good showing with sightings most days (even if only the one roosting in the nest box). Old Beans is a great place to explore the North Norfolk coast and, despite the somewhat changeable weather, we took full advantage of its location. Old Beans is one of the best cottages we have stayed in and are certainly planning to return. Other wildlife including kestrels, red kites, buzzards and pheasants provide the light entertainment.
Barn owl only showed itself on a few very early mornings - around 6am. Otherwise it was a wonderful and inspiring as ever. Thank you - cannot wait to be back in October. So pleased and grateful this cottage exists.
