Property Description

So much space surrounds The Granary - it stands in perfect rural seclusion, reached by its own tree-lined avenue, and is set on the edge of the owners’ sheep farm. It boasts a contemporary and calm interior design throughout, and the ground floor rooms are large and light-filled. Comfortably furnished and equipped, it makes a superb holiday venue for large families or groups. Large floor-to-ceiling windows (the length of the property) enable outstanding views to be enjoyed across meadowland. From the sofas or the huge dining table, guests can watch sheep grazing lazily in the fields, observe the wildlife on the busy farm pond, and spot the barn owls which hunt from ancient oaks. Guests can use the wall-size map of Norfolk to plan days out and about in the surrounding area.
There are walks and signed trails to enjoy around the farm (with unfenced ponds). The spectacular unspoilt Norfolk coastline and traditional market towns of Swaffham, Ely and Kings Lynn, are within easy reach. Year-round there are activities and attractions for all ages including Gooderstone Water Gardens, Stowe Farm, Grimes Graves, Welney Nature Reserve, High Lodge Forest Adventure Park and Norfolk Cycle Way. There is a good cycling network of quiet lanes from the doorstep, and plenty of space to kick a ball, play cricket or practise frisbee skills. Shops, pubs and Oxburgh Hall (NT), 1 mile.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Our stay at the Granary was over New Year - eleven people and two dogs we all fitted comfortably into this property and was very spacious and comfortable positioned very near to Swatham and Downham Market - we visited Thetford Forest and Holkham Bay both very enjoyable days out. Dec 2011.
  2. Lovely location. This is my second visit with a large group of artists painting the surrounding area. The owners are very helpful. May 2011.
  3. Beautiful location. Terrific views out of the large windows along the length of the main sitting room - we saw owls, deer, a fox, lots of birds - and of course the sheep! Dec 2010.
  4. The property has been beautifully renovated. The layout with the large seating area and large dining table made it a lovely sociable environment for our group of ten. The location was great for walks and easy access to shops and the pub! Nov 2010.
  5. An excellent property for a family break. Very clean, lovely location. Very peaceful and relaxing area. Oct 2010.
  6. The Granary was situated in quiet and picturesque rural setting. Aug 2010.
  7. Very spacious with rural views as you ate your breakfast in the morning, very relaxing. Nov 2009.
  8. Very spacious with plenty of room for a wheelchair user. Level entrance too The only things that could be improved were the number of hand rails in the bathroom - vertical rails by toilet and shower are essential along with a swing down vertical hand rail alongside the toilet. Oct 2009.
  9. Property was lovely and the welcome was wonderful. There was lots of space and all the facilities we needed. Sept 2009.
  10. The Granary was a lovely cottage, with plenty of room for the 8 adults and two toddlers in our party. It has a lovely feel to it and we were all very pleased. Aug 2009.
  11. We thought the property was beautiful, and loved how peaceful it was, away from civilisation. There was so much provided for us, the kitchen facilities were incredible, and it was lovely to be able to fit 12 of us around one table for dinner. Owner was lovely when we met her; during a game of volleyball in the garden she greeted us with fresh pears from the tree and supplied a very tasty cake on arrival. Perfect host! Aug 2009.
  12. Beautiful accommodation,well furnished to a high standard with those added little extras that make it special like kids duvet covers, stair gates at top of stairs and hand wash at every sink.The seperate bit at one end is great if two or more families are using it as gives that little bit of privacy or use separate living room for kids disco like we did. All in all top class. Sept 2008.
  13. We had a lovely stay at The Granary and will definetly re-book. Also a fantastic wetroom on the ground floor, ideal for your disabled guests. Set on a lovely farm with a very welcoming owner, Thank you from us all. April 2008.
  14. The Granary was fabulous and the views from the lounge across the field were lovely. We went at lambing time and were able to help bottle feed some of them - the children loved it. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. We would definitely recommend and would go again. March 2008.
  15. This is a brilliant place for an extended family to enjoy a quality holiday together. There is plenty of space for varied activities, but plenty of space for all to be together. May 2008.
  16. Absolutely delighted with the accommodation. The owners couldn’t have been more welcoming or helpful. We very much enjoyed the farm environs: wonderful for our young grandchildren to be in. Very well appointed accommodation. Ample room for our party and for us to entertain some 15 others at a family party. Aug 2008.
  17. Fantastic property with lovely views, a great place to go for a weekend away with family or friends. Sept 2008.
