Taylors Barn

The barn's most impressive feature is the very large open plan 'L' shaped living space accommodating the kitchen, dining area and sitting room.

The stylish master bedroom has a super-king sized four poster bed and a contemporary en-suite shower with "his and hers" basins. The large twin bedroom is dual aspect with views over the woodland to the rear. The single bedroom, with a further single pull out bed, also has a rural aspect. The generous family bathroom, includes a standalone shower, with a spectacular oversized glass lantern. A separate utility room is the ideal place for a damp dog to dry off.

With terraced areas, wooded garden and ample parking in shared courtyard with Bixes Barn this really is a wonderful place to stay on holiday.

There is plenty of outdoor space with private terraces and BBQs. A large communal level grass area is the perfect place to kick a football around. A swing and slide set with views on to the adjoining field is the perfect spot for children to play.

About Gus Ambler

An experienced and well traveled property professional, with a keen eye for detail.

Gus Ambler purchased this barn in 2008

Why Gus Ambler chose Holt

The barns are located in a quiet rural location and offered fantastic potential to create three really high quality holiday properties.

The wonderful beaches nearby combined with the pretty villages and busy Georgian town of Holt make this a very sought after destination on the North Norfolk Coast.

What makes this barn unique

The barns are furnished to a high standard with furniture having been purchased specifically for the barns rather than "hand-me-downs" that often feature in holiday cottages and houses.

The communal games room is a great feature which will occupy everyone for hours if the weather forces people inside.

Truly amazing holiday barn

  • 5 of 5

What can I say, Taylor's barn is beautiful! Everything has been thought of, fully equipped kitchen, lovely and clean and the local area is great. We stayed at the barn with our friends and their 4 month old baby, the layout is great and it's so peaceful. Definitely one to visit!
