About the property

3 Beds, 2 Bathroom cottage in conservation area close to Norfolk Heritage Coast

Barley Cottage is situated in Burnham Market's picturesque Georgian conservation area, close to the beautiful North Norfolk Heritage Coast, with its miles of soft sandy beaches. The Cottage is in a peaceful backwater, yet only a few minutes stroll from the vibrant atmosphere of the village green, shops and restaurants, making it the perfect venue for a convenient and relaxing holiday.

The cottage is accessed through a 5 bar gate down a private drive and is part of a small row of terraced cottages, converted from the original Maltings' building with its own parking area for two vehicles.

Its traditional flint and brick exterior is complimented by the wealth of exposed beams inside. In summer the sun floods through the cottage and meals can be enjoyed outside, whilst in winter it is warm and cosy indoors.

The cottage comfortably sleeps 5/6 in three bedrooms – a king size master with a small en suite wc/shower room, a double bedroom and a twin bedroom. All the bedrooms are built into the roof space and have beams. The master has two dormer windows overlooking the garden and Maltings’ green. The 2nd and 3rd bedrooms have sloping rooflines with velux windows affording views to the back of the cottage and fields beyond. All the beds have duvets and two pillows per person.

About Andrew and Sue Watley

Barley Cottage is our family's much loved second home. Our whole family, children and grandchildren all regularly visit the cottage and we find it a great place to relax and unwind - walking, crabbing, bird watching, kite flying or just playing in the sand. Enjoying the local coastal restaurants and visiting Holkham.

Andrew and Sue Watley purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Andrew and Sue Watley chose Burnham Market

The beautiful Norfolk coast is as magical in Winter time as it is in high season. Miles of sandy beaches and vast fields with huge skies full of migrating birds at certain seasons of the year. From the cottage we enjoy walking along footpaths and ancient tracks leading down to the coast or we are just a few minutes by car from several beaches.Tennis, golf and sailing activities are all accessibly locally. We are spoilt for choice of food - wonderful local produce, fresh seafood, farm shops as well as many renowned restaurants right along this stretch of coast. The great estate of Holkham with its many visitor events is nearby as well as other stately homes including Sandringham. We are very lucky that many of our guests return each year and feel like old friends.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is nestled in a peaceful backwater with its own sunny front garden catching the morning sun and overlooking the Maltings' cottages private green where guests can enjoy catching the last afternoon rays and the young at heart can play.

Blissful stay at Barley Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful holiday with our young grandson at this delightful cottage. It was spotlessly clean, charmingly furnished with everything you need, and in an excellent, peaceful location only minutes walk from popular Burnham Market. With beautiful beaches, the attractions of the Holkham Estate and a wide range of good restaurants nearby, it all added up to a perfect summer holiday. We would have no hesitation in recommending this property to friends.

Lovely house and area

  • 5 of 5

We had a really relaxing stay at Flint Cottage. Pretty cottage, nicely decorated and thoughtfully fitted out. Close to Brancaster, which has a lovely, easily accessible family beach and to other attractions. Highly recommended.
