About Sarah van Poortvliet

Kings Beck Barn is owned by a family farm & is managed by me (Sarah), farmer's wife & mother of two.

I take great pride in the barn & happily bake a homemade cake for the guests as well as providing fresh flowers, tea & coffee (with 1/2 a pint of milk) & a bottle of wine chilling in the fridge.

Sarah van Poortvliet purchased this barn in 1949

Why Sarah van Poortvliet chose Norfolk & The Broads

Kings Beck Barn is owned by the family farming business and is situated on the outskirts of the working farm. With the changes in agriculture the farm was no longer used for storing farm machinery or livestock.

In 2010 the barn was renovated into a beautiful holiday home with stunning views across the Norfolk countryside. Although set in a rural location, the barn is only 3 miles from the traditional market town of Aylsham (and the National trust property Blickling Hall) and is only 8 miles from the sandy beaches of the North Norfolk coast.

What makes this barn unique

There is a large enclosed garden which backs onto arable land and lots of private walks which lead from the back door! Private hot tub available & table tennis table for your entertainment. Up to 2 well behaved dogs are permitted.
