About the property

Barn in Belaugh, Norfolk Broads National Park, Norfolk, England - Peaceful Location, Ideal Base For Exploring The Broads & Coast and Within Easy Reach of

Barn House Cottage offers comfortable accommodation for 2 people in a quiet, rural hamlet surrounded by farmland and bordered by the river Bure. The cottage has character and is very cosy but has modern kitchen facilities and 21st century plumbing! Barn House Cottage is a fully independent and private annexe of our holiday home - Barn House. The garden in front of the barn is for guests' exclusive use but dog owners should note that it is not an enclosed space (though there is no passing traffic).

Belaugh is middway between Wroxham and Coltishall (about 1.5 miles from each). Within 5 mins drive Wroxham offers a variety of shops from the family butcher with a superb range of home-made barbeque foods to Roys' supermarket which is famous in these parts. You can hire a boat or a bicycle, walk beside the river, fish, or take advantage of the local pubs and restaurants.

The riverside village of Coltishall is 1.5 miles in the other direction. If you wish, you can walk there along the path outside your kitchen window across the fields and over a couple of stiles. Coltishall is quieter than Wroxham and there are a couple of nice pubs beside the river. And if you don't want to go anywhere, relax in the garden, enjoying the tranquil setting and listening to the birds.

The beautiful city of Norwich is about 20 minutes drive (or you can park and ride) and there are many National Trust properties, RSPB nature reserves and beautiful beaches less than an hour away.

Perfect little get away

  • 5 of 5

The property is in a beautiful location perfect to get away from noisy life to a silent countryside. The cottage was clean and well presented, and offered a comfortable stay over two nights.

For the price we paid we felt like we got more than our monies worth and will definitely be considering returning. Thank you to the owners for letting us stay at such a beautiful spot.

Barn House Cottage was a charming find in a delightful location.

Well equipped with everything you could wish for including comfy sofas & bed !

Super communication with a very nice owner made booking this cottage a pleasure.

Loved all the homely touches & thought the Christmas decorations were a real bonus.

Hope to stay again next time we visit this area.

Just what it says on the label:- cosy, secluded, comfortable and characterful

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

The owner supplied excellent directions, which made it easy to find. The cottage is about half of one arm of a L - shaped barn conversion, the remainder being the owner's accommodation. There is a most attractive, tastefully planted and well maintained garden, which we had the use of. The cottage itself, manages to be both cosy and have a light airy feel to it. There is an entrance hall, an open-plan sitting room /kitchen/diner, a shower room and a double bedroom. The kitchen is very well equipped and easy to use. We found the sitting room very comfortable and likewise the bedroom. The shower room is quite spacious with a decent sized sink and a very good shower. The cottage was spotlessly clean throughout. The location is very quiet and secluded, on the edge of Belaugh - an conservation village- and just a short walk from the river. We found Belaugh to be an excellent base for exploring the Broads, it's only a five minute drive to Wroxham or Cotishall and one could get to just about anywhere on the Northern Broads in half an hour. We would not hesitate to recommend this cottage to anyone seeking a peaceful retreat, and would be more than happy to stay there again.

Very comfortable cottage in a beautiful setting and well located for exploring Norfolk

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

The cottage was well presented and had all the facilities that we required. All the arrangements and communications with the owner went very smoothly. There was no disappointment with any aspect of our stay.

The cottage was perfectly located for visiting any part of Norfolk including Norwich. There was no lack of eating places to suit any budget or taste within a short distance.

We have no reservations in recommending this cottage to anyone.

We had a most enjoyable holiday.

The barn is beautiful, it is clean, warm and homely. The location was perfect and quiet and the facilities in the barn were all great. We loved playing some of the board games. Couldn't fault anything!
