This detached, single-storey barn conversion is nestled in undulating Norfolk farmland. Having an open plan design bringing together a blend of traditional with modern style makes Stackyard Cottage a perfect choice at any time of year. Do remember to bring your walking boots, as there are many local walks and bridle paths available direct from the door, including the Weavers Way, local woodland trails and a designated path leading to North Walsham alongside Dilham Canal. The open plan living area boasts a toasty wood burning stove, a contemporary kitchen, and being all on one level, it makes it ideal for guests that prefer to avoid stairs. Nestled in the owner’s grounds, the property retains privacy and also has its own driveway entrance. The owner is a qualified beauty therapist and offers on-site treatments, so why not treat yourself to a relaxing massage or facial? The barn has an enclosed lawned garden with pretty manicured borders and a patio with spectacular open views across the farmland, perfect for watching the sun rise and set.
