Windham's Barn is a beautifully renovated 19C barn in a totally private rural setting with stunning views across open countryside from every room. Built in 1846 by William Windham, owner of nearby Felbrigg Hall, the barn is idyllically located within its own grounds at the heart of an historical farming estate belonging to the owner's family for almost a century. Offering spacious, laid-back luxury for families and groups of friends to relax and unwind, the barn has been tastefully restored to a high standard, providing an elegant, contemporary, light-filled peaceful escape.  With two sitting rooms and large open plan dining kitchen with seating area, original beams and full height sliding glass doors that run along one side of the room, you might not feel like venturing too far. For sunny days there is an enclosed south facing garden with two terraces and, for more active days, you can play tennis on a court within the grounds - or put your boots on and explore the lovely walks available from outside the door. And, if you can manage to tear yourself away from this lovely spot, don't forget the beautiful beaches of North Norfolk - just fifteen minutes' drive away. Shop/Pub: 1.3 miles

The hamlet of Thurgarton is situated in one of the prettiest and most unspoilt areas of North Norfolk within undulating countryside.  It is just over a mile from the quintessential English village of Aldborough, with its large village green, convenience store and pub.  The Georgian market town of Holt is about eight miles west where you will find excellent shopping and other amenities.  The North Norfolk coast, much of which is classified as being of outstanding natural beauty, and is a heritage coastline, is some five miles to the north and offers numerous recreational pursuits including bird sanctuaries, safe sandy beaches and excellent sailing facilities at Blakeney and Morston.  There are 18 hole golf courses at nearby Cromer and Sheringham. For National Trust lovers, Felbrigg Hall, Blicking and Blakeney Point are in close proximity and, if you are searching for first-class food look no further than The Gunton Arms at Thorpe Park or treat yourself to the best fish and chips in the area at No 1 restaurant in Cromer.


We had a wonderful time at Windham’s Barn, it was five star accommodation with everything you need. The location was great for peace and quiet but not too far away from things like the beach or really good walks. I would thoroughly recommend for a large family group break

Ms Lisa P,

Just a big thanks you for oiling the wheels to a totally delightful family Christmas in wonderful accommodation. Everything went as described. No hitches. Beautiful place, key easily obtained, even some sunshine in December. We would love to visit again - possibly in summer. I cannot thank you enough.

Irene J,

Kittiwake cottage in Brancaster was lovely. My sister and I visited for a week. Beautiful furnished and equipped and the village was great, with several excellent pubs. Windham's Barn Nr Cromer was just wonderful. Nine of us stayed there - a family break for the grown ups. It was beautiful. Furniture was perfect, bedrooms and bathrooms excellent, and the kitchen/living room was superb. It's a bit out in the wilds, but we like that sort of thing. Cromer was only 5 miles down the road. Thank you for two excellent cottages.

Mrs Anne K,

Exactly and what we were hoping for. A thoroughly enjoyable stay. Equipped with everything we needed.
