Converted Barns in Sculthorpe, Nr. Fakenham, Norfolk, England - Peaceful Location, 10 Minutes Drive From The Beach
There are 3 adjoining pet friendly barns which have been sympathetically converted to provide spacious and comfortable accommodation. We provide free wifi, oil fired central heating, range cookers, enclosed and private walled gardens, private parking and built-in barbecues. There are no steps to get into the properties and some double en-suite rooms on the ground floors for those who may struggle with steps. We are happy for pet owners to walk their dogs on leads around their farm where there are great opportunities for bird watching. The barns are situated on the farm itself with views over open countryside and the lovely Sculthorpe Church on the driveway.

About the Owner
I am Tony Pointer, farmer and now self catering accommodation owner aswell. After transfering the old grain barns and pig yards into my name in 2007, it has been my task to make these barns into the accommodation that our own family would be happy to stay in, and i think with my wifes help we have succeeded. I also enjoy meeting all those that stay in the barns and taking on their comments about the barns, which fill me with the confidence that we have got most things right(if not always the weather!).
From the Owner
“Having been born a brought up,and being the third generation on this family run farm, it was my ambition to convert these old barns which were starting to fall down. I felt that entertaining people instead of mucking out pigs was a better option for the future after going through the difficulties brought on by foot and mouth twice and swine flu outbreaks in the countryside. There are so many lovely things about the North Norfolk coast that i find it hard to tear myself away from this area, and i hope those that stay here will take home some life long memories.”

From the Owner
“These barns are built so that each barn can contain each family seperately, but also if all barns are booked together the people staying can enjoy the group feeling, as we can hire out marquees and bouncy castles especially for the warm weather periods. There is ample parking space and a large grassed area at the end of the barn for all to play on.”
