Outstanding Self Catering Barn Conversion



Updated: 04-Sep-2016
Converted Barn in Dersingham, Kings Lynn, North Norfolk, England, UK - Village Location on the Edge of the Royal Sandringham Estate and Close to the Stunning Norfolk Coast

Lavender Barn was originally built in 1750 and recently reconstructed using its original hand cut Norfolk carstone and chalk. The Barn is wonderfully presented and superbly equipped to offer an idyllic hideaway for you to relax in real luxury and enjoy the dramatic Norfolk Coastline and beautiful local area. Every attention to detail has been taken to offer a delightful venue equally suited for couples and families. The sea shore is just 2 miles away and offers long flowing sandy beaches, and is great for water sports such as kite surfing and sailing. Lavender Barn is also perfectly placed for you to experience some of the UK's best bird watching at the RSPB reserves of Snettisham and Titchwell. The local area is steeped in medieval history - with Sandringham and Castle Rising a short walk away. Burnham Thorpe - the birthplace of Norfolk's most famous son Lord Horatio Nelson is also within easy reach. The stately homes of Houghton, Holkham and Sandringham are close by.

About the Owner

We are a young Norfolk family who originate from Norwich but moved to Dersingham in 2000.

We moved to West Norfolk due to my husbands work and love the combination of quiet village life and having the beauty of the countryside and coast on our door step.

We have two children and two westie puppies, all growing up fast! Now seemed the perfect time to embrace a challenge and start up a new business.

We welcome you to what we feel is a perfect venue for a relaxing getaway although we still have Norwich and Cambridge both within an hour's drive to enjoy the bustle and attractions of city life.

We hope you decide to choose Lavender Barn for your holiday, and enjoy your stay with us.
