About the property

Apartment in East Barsham, North Norfolk, England - Peaceful Location, Excellent Central Location for Coast ,attractions and Towns

A wonderful self contained apartment within a former Rectory set in 2.5 acres of peaceful grounds teeming with birds and wildlife. The recently refurbished apartment is fully centrally heated and although joined to the main house is completely private and has separate access through the private courtyard which has an outdoor seating area. There is ample parking within the grounds very close to the property.

The Apartment is situated in a quiet village which boasts a church mentioned in the Domesday book, the fabulous Tudor built Barsham Manor and a delightful pub. It is in a perfect central location , just a short drive from the gorgeous unspoilt beaches of the North Norfolk coast where you will find mile after mile of sea and sand, perfect for relaxing on a warm summers day but just as exhilarating for winter walks wrapped up against the cold. A short drive will take you to the Georgian market town of Fakenham and Pensthorpe Waterfowl Park as seen in the BBC's Springwatch shows, and within easy reach of other interesting towns such as Walsingham , Holt and Burnham Market to name but a few. Slightly further afield is the magnificent city of Norwich home to the famed Cathedral, fabulous shops, restaurants, the Canaries football team and Alan Partridge! Bird reserves such as Titchwell and Cley are also a short distance away.

New for 2016 guests can now take advantage of our Sports and Remedial Massage service at the property by a fully accredited, Insured and ITEC qualified massage therapist, including Postural Analysis, Deep tissue Massage, Myofascial Release and Full Body Relaxing massage. Prices on application. What better way to wind down after a hard days sightseeing !

Superb apartment in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Toad Hall apartment is a spacious apartment over two floors. Everything about it shows quality and the desire of the owners to provide a relaxing and memorable stay. It is ideally located for visiting North Norfolk, from Cromer to Kings Lynn. Close to Fakenham, a large town with all the amenities you could want, yet far enough away to feel you are in the heart of the countryside. Thank you.

Excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

Excellent clean comfortable apartment made an ideal base for our walks and bird watching activities. Only a very slight critisim no internet/wifi or mobile signal but actually rather nice to be incognito for a week!!! Also a washing machine would be a very good addition to the apartment especially if the weather was bad, however the weather was glorious during our week in Norfolk.

Peaceful, very comfortable and near the coast.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fab stay at the apartment at Toad Hall. Heather and Russ have thought of everything to make the apartment comfortable and easy to "live in" The resident Little Owls and Martins were a delight to watch as were the other birds near the coast.

The Norfolk coast and the surrounding area of East Barsham is beautiful and the local pub was handy for a couple of meals. A great place to stay and we hope to come and stay again soon.

North Norfolk is renowned as a good spot to watch birds and for those keen birdwatchers amongst our guests we are always happy to point them in the direction of some of the off the beaten track places to go , apart from the wonderful reserves of Titchwell and Cley. There are lots of National Trust properties such as Blickling Hall within a reasonable distance and plenty of gardens to visit for those with an interest in Stately Homes , not forgetting Sandringham of course. Watersports are also a popular pursuit around the coast, as is cycling and we have the facilities in our outbuildings to be able to store any of this equipment if needed.
