About the property

Barn in Burnham Thorpe, Burnham Market, North Norfolk, England - Rural Location On The Edge Of Burnham Thorpe. Beaches And Harbours Ideal For Families

Nelson's barn is at the birthplace of Admiral Lord Nelson and is good for families. With tiled floors downstairs and a good sized kitchen, children and dogs come and go. It has an open plan ground floor with high ceiling and second floor balcony running round it. There is a lawn to the back, shared with two little cottages. Plenty of driveway parking for cars. The south facing entrance with patio is an ideal place to sit and soak up some sunshine. There are many local attractions not least being Holkham beach and Holkham hall. Sailing, walking, golf, kite boarding can all be done on or near this lovely coastline.

About Nina Plumbe

I live nearby , am a mother of 3 grown up children , and am a tenant farmer running a specialty plum orchard on the Holkham estate. I was born in the farmhouse ! I love sailing and motorbiking and to that end you will see several large photos on the barn walls from my trips by motorbike all over the world.

Nina Plumbe purchased this barn in 1980

Why Nina Plumbe chose Kings Lynn & West Norfolk

Born in the area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I can't believe how well it suited all of us and everyone was able to do their own thing but at the same time didn't feel cut off from everyone else! The beds were all so comfortable-didn't hear any grumbles anyway and my Mum was happy at 87 not to go upstairs!

Monty, our 15 year old spaniel had a new lease of life and had 2 long walks every day! We were so lucky with the weather too and some of our morning walks were spectacular with the birdsong, kite and owls!

The kitchen was so well equipped and every evening we cooked and there was always the right dishes and pans - thank you! Also, the knives were all sharp which really helps when you are preparing lots of veg!
