Bask in the Norfolk sunshine in the pretty garden at this enticing barn in the peaceful village of Upton, 2 miles from Acle. Sleeping two guests, plus one dog, the one-bedroom thatched barn is attached to the owner’s house but enjoys its privacy and its own delightful garden. Amble 0.5 miles down to the river to see if you can spot kingfishers and herons. Visit the vibrant Broadland village of Wroxham, 9 miles away, to hire a day cruiser or to take a trip along the narrow-gauge Bure Valley Railway through picturesque scenery. Have a day on the beach at Caister-on-Sea, 9 miles away, or visit Norwich, 12 miles away, with its shopping areas, restaurants and historic sights.

Wander into your home from home to find accommodation that is comfortable and welcoming. Find your stay will be based around an open-plan lounge/diner, where you can relax together after your many excursions. Unwind on the soft seating in here, catching up on your favourite programmes on TV, watching a DVD, or listening to music via the CD player. Head under the archway to the kitchen area, with its electric oven, fridge/freezer and microwave to prepare light snacks and hearty meals. Find you also have a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer here to make your stay as easy as possible. Lay the table for meals in the lounge/diner. The shower room, with shower and WC, is also at this level. Climb the stairs up to the first-floor mezzanine where your twin bedroom is located to savour a good night’s sleep. Please note, as this bedroom is located in the eaves, there is a low, sloping ceiling with reduced head height.

Open the French doors from the lounge and take your morning coffee out onto the patio on fine mornings. The garden here has space for outside dining, as well as a lawn and mature plants. There is parking for two cars.
