About David Johnson

We are a young family and purchased the The Old Barn, Holme, in 2006. We carried out a completed refurbishment and modernisation and continue to make little changes here and there every year. We live near Stamford and travel regularly to The Old Barn to escape work and immerse ourselves in the sheer beauty of all that the North Norfolk coast has to offer.

In 2007 we also bought two properties next to the beach at South Beach, Heacham. We thought these would be perfect for our children to grow up around and play by the beach in the traditional way.

David Johnson purchased this barn in 2006

Why David Johnson chose Kings Lynn & West Norfolk

We scoured properties for sale from Heacham to Wells, but The Old Barn stood out as having so much light and airy space and a large enclosed garden, that made not buying it very difficult indeed. It is superbly located for children's activities as well as those for adults. The estate agents words to us were 'don't go too far round the coast, as this area is where all the action is.' SOLD!

What makes this barn unique

The Old Barn has four generous bedrooms and enough showers and wc's that two families can share without getting in each others way. But the best bit for us is the huge living spaces and the lovely log burner. As soon as we unpack we walk to the beach for some sea air and then stop off at the local pub on the way back for a real ale. Perfect.

Wonderful spacious holiday home, top notch!

  • 5 of 5

The Old barn is indeed old but has been renovated to a high standard. It is very spacious with 2 lounges a good sized kitchen and great dining area. I especially liked the garden room and the Bond photos in the dining room. Our family consisted of a family of 4, a grandmother and an Uncle. We had lots of space inside and made use of the side garden almost everyday.

The home had everything we needed and I can't think of anything it is lacking.

It is on a main road located within walking distance of the beach (sandy) and The White Horse pub (recommended). There is a farm shop a short drive away (2 mins turning left out the drive) with all the essentials and a lot of luxuries. In the same place there is a Fish & Chip restaurant & takeaway, plus a fishmongers and a few other shops. All recommended.

Big thanks to the owners from a very pleased family.

Comfortable, warm and spacious accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to The Old Barn. It is perfectly situated for the beach, birdwatching and walks straight from the door. The accommodation is very comfortable, with more than adequate seating and a beautiful light conservatory. The garden has a suntrap so we were sitting outside enjoying tea and cake at 6pm! The kitchen is well equipped and has everything you need to self cater although there are many excellent eateries nearby. We have already booked to return in the Autumn!

Just lovely...

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property. Very well equipped and great layout with lots of seating options both inside and outside. Really good for the dog who loved the garden and great that the hall and kitchen can be blocked off from the rest of the house when necessary. Despite having been coming to North Norfolk for over 20 years, we'd never stopped in Holme - we now realise what we've missed. Lovely village with friendly and helpful neighbours. Great pub which did us a very nice meal one night. Nice walk down to the beach through Holme dunes (good for the birders among us) and great to have the open park nearby to give the dog a quick run in the evening. Well located for Titchwell and other villages along the coast. We used the farm shop and chippy at Drove Orchards just up the road - both excellent. We had a lovely meal at The Orange Tree in Thornham too. Thanks to David for a wonderful stay and your help beforehand.
