Overview

About the property

Brick & flint barn, charming and spacious, centre of Cley and close to beach

We're happy to offer 3 nights minimum during non-peak periods. Set within the grounds of The Old Manor House, this charming brick and flint Barn offers spacious and well-appointed accommodation, plus a central location in Cley Next the Sea. Full of character, it comprises 2 generous double rooms, one with an en-suite shower room and the other with a TV and adjoining family room, which has 2 single beds, plus a truckle bed to sleep a third. The family room is divided from the main double bedroom by a door, but does not have a separate entrance and so is most suitable for children.

The ground floor bathroom is finished to a high specification, with a Duravit bathroom suite. There is a bath and integrated shower, washbasin and WC. High grade, Egyptian cotton bed linen and towels are provided.

The kitchen is fully equipped, including a Miele oven and Miele hob, microwave, Bosch dishwasher, AEG washer/dryer and fridge with freezer compartment. There is also a large fridge/freezer in the garage - which is adjacent to the barn and easily reached - which is solely for guest use. The garage is also useful for guests to store bikes, fishing equipment, body boards or anything else you might wish to store in the dry and out of the barn itself.

The main living/dining area is spacious, with a comfortable seating area for at least 7 people and log burner. There is a large, wall-mounted TV with Freeview and internet TV. In addition, there is a DVD player and a selection of DVDs for you to choose from. The dining table is situated near to the kitchen and sits up to 8 comfortably. Two walls are mostly covered with book shelves and we have plenty for you to read!

Outside there is an attractive garden area, bordered by beautiful willow fencing. There is a garden table and chairs with umbrella, a small terraced area and lawn and we provide a BBQ in the summer months.

CHILDREN FRIENDLY

For guests with small children, we have a travel cot, 1 high chair and a booster seat and both sets of stairs are fitted with stair gates.

The local area itself has lots of things for younger children to do, including crabbing at Blakeney, the seal trips from Morston and Blakeney Quays, plus within walking distance of the barn is a small playground. North Norfolk itself is full of fun activities for children and we have details within the barn.

PARKING

There is parking for 2 cars directly outside the barn.

(Please note we have a FRIDAY turn around day and a no smoking policy.)

ABOUT CLEY-NEXT-THE-SEA

Manor House Barn is centrally located within the picturesque, coastal village of Cley-Next-the-Sea. An area of outstanding natural beauty, Cley village has much to offer visitors and the beach is only 1KM away.

From Cley, there is a wide range of distractions all within easy walking distance. You can view the beautiful marshes by taking a walk along the Cley-to-Blakeney sea wall. Or you could stroll to the beach, accessed via the marshes, and watch the sea fishing or simply enjoy a walk along the shingle. Alternatively the Norfolk Wildlife Trust visitors centre is nearby and is the perfect place from which to take in the marshes and bird watching facilities.

Within Cley village itself, you can lose yourself amongst its charming shops, pubs and restaurants. These include:

Artemis Cafe (outside seating over looks the marshes and is superb)

The award winning Picnic Fayre Delicatessen

Cley Smoke House - with a mouth-watering array of fish

Made in Cley pottery studio

Pinkfoot Gallery

Crabpot Books

The famous Cley Windmill.

THE NORFOLK COASTAL AREA

From Cley you are perfectly located to discover the delights of the North Norfolk coast - a journey you can make by foot, car or the efficient coastal hopper service.

SUGGESTED ACTIVITIES

Neighbouring Cley is the pretty village of Blakeney, which offers sailing, crabbing, and a national nature reserve. From Blakeney Point you can go seal watching and boats can be hired from either Blakeney or Morston Quay.

North Norfolk is home to some of the finest stately residences. Holkham Hall, Blickling and Felbrigg, are all within easy reach.

BEACHES

With a shingle beach on offer at Cley, there are also sandy beaches at Wells-next-the-Sea and Holkham which offer fabulous, wind-swept coastlines. But if it’s traditional seaside towns you’re after, Sheringham and Cromer are also close by.

NEARBY MARKET TOWNS AND RESTAURANTS

Both offer a rich variety of shops, galleries, restaurants and pubs, including the award-winning The Hoste Arms in Burnham Market and Holts’ renowned restaurant and delicatessen, Byfords.

Beautiful conversion, very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Cley is a beautiful village with great fish smokery and Deli. Some good pubs around. Barn very pretty. We had terrible weather so the Wood burner helped keep us warm and cosy. Small but well equipped kitchen. One bedroom upstairs not en-suite means trip downstairs to loo.

Loved the 4 day break and would return again.

Family get together

  • 4 of 5

The house met all of our expectations with plenty of space for children.

Plenty to do in the area from beaches, walking, bird watching or stately home visiting. Good play areas for children and of course crabbing.

The owner was very accommodating.

Great property in peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

Manor House Barn is a lovely property and in a great location for exploring North Norfolk. The property is exactly as described with a very large living area - great for a group - and a small but well stocked kitchen, including a washing machine and dishwasher. Beds were super-comfortable with nice linens and the bathrooms were modern with no end of hot water!

Rachel was also very helpful and even loaned us her electric hand blender for the duration of the stay. Recommended!

Great cottage and superb location. So much to do and see.

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at the cottage and plenty of room for 2 families.

It had everything we needed and within easy walking distance to two great pubs with wonderful food in the village.

Loved Cley and all it has to offer and the rest of North Norfolk.

A perfect stay for anyone who can easily get up stairs to their room and families too.

Thanks for having us.
