Overview

Loddon Barn Rental Photos and Description

Two bedroom cottage, sleeps 3

Converted from a cart shed this comfortable cottage offers peace and tranquility in a rural setting. Combined with electricity generated from a wind turbine and hot water from solar panels this eco-friendly property offers a holiday with reduced environmental impact. Stubbs Barn cottage has two bedrooms, a sunny and spacious open plan lounge, kitchen and dining area. The barn is set in seven acres of paddocks and gardens and your hosts, Martin and Jane offer you a warm welcome to enjoy the surroundings and local wildlife. With easy access to the Broads, the Suffolk Coast and the City of Norwich, Stubbs Barn Cottage is within easy walking distance of the village of Loddon. The village has pubs, restaurants and shops as well as all the necessary facilities such as post office, bank and doctors. There are plenty of footpaths, offering easy walking in the South Norfolk countryside.

Stubbs Barn Cottage is a recently converted cart shed, which has two bedrooms, bathroom, and a spacious and airy open plan lounge/kitchen/dining area. With tasteful yet practical furnishings and pictures by a local artist, we hope you will find it comfortable and relaxing. The cottage faces south and has large windows looking out over the top paddock, trees and fields beyond. With it’s own patio it is the ideal location to relax and watch the wildlife, listen to the birds singing, unwind and just enjoy those big Norfolk skies.

The cottage is kept cosy in the winter by underfloor heating from a ground source heat pump, electricity is generated from a 6Kw windturbine and hot water is provided by solar panels. Your hosts Martin and Jane, are keen gardeners, and will be happy to share seasonal produce with you.

They have successfully transformed the farm yard concrete to grass and gardens, with long-term plans including a kitchen and herb garden, orchard, reed beds and water garden – come every year and watch the progress! Chickens provide fresh eggs, while honey bees (kept some distance from the house you will be pleased to hear) work tirelessly to produce local honey.

The local village of Loddon has something for everyone, from pubs and restaurants to river trips and wildlife walks. While 20 minutes by car will find you in the cathedral city of Norwich, with shops, restaurants and museums. Close by are the historic towns of Beccles and Bungay and within easy reach is the Suffolk coast and the picturesque town of Southwold, home of the famous Adnams brewery. The RSPB bird reserves at Minsmere and Titchwell are both within reach, while other local reserves such as Strumpshaw, Wheatfen and Hickling offer excellent opportunities to see local wildlife.

A Hidden Gem in Norfolk!

  • 5 of 5
This property is ideally situated for Norwich, the local town of Loddon and exploring the coast with everything it has to offer. The cottage has been lovingly furnished by the owners to provide a peaceful and quiet retreat. The owners are very friendly and can provide the most delightul eggs from their hens! As visitors, you are free to wander around the grounds at will. This is one of the best properties we have ever stayed in and would thoroughly recommend that if you want a week away from it all, you should not hesitate to book!

Ideal getaway

  • 5 of 5
We couldn't ask for anything more, the place was just perfect. The owners were lovely and accomodating. We loved the fresh bread and eggs when we arrived. Our boy really enjoyed the places we visited around Norfolk-the castle, dinosaur park, shops. So many things you could do, hence going back for another stay.The place is just the ideal tonic to enjoy your holiday after all your sightseeing.We can't wait to get back.

Lovely, peaceful retreat with friendly owners

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our week here; the owners were very welcoming and helpful and the cottage itself is cosy, stylish and well-appointed. It's in a very quiet location and our 3 year old greatly enjoyed seeing the chickens and vegetable garden. We would recommend Norwich Castle for children, also Southwold is gorgeous and you should catch the 1950s green bus 'Olive' which goes from the pier every 30 minutes. A £3 ticket lasts all day and the driver and conductor were wonderfully kind and helpful. Loddon is great to walk around and there is a nice circular walk.
A very positive experience all round!

Jane and Martin just returned from a most relaxing stay at Stubbs Barn. We all really enjoyed the peaceful surroundings and the welcome touches of fresh bread jam and fresh eggs from your chickens just added to our stay.

The barn has been beautifully restored and has everything you need right at hand. Nothing is complicated a real 10 out of 10!

We really enjoyed the area and made the most of your nearby location to Norwich great shopping lots of independant shops along with all the well known and eating out places, top tip get the park and ride in from Harford very efficent.
Great tip for children of all ages Norwich Castle lots for them to do very interactive we spent over 3 hours inside for £7! We have a 3 year old, and he loved it.

Good beaches at Lowestoft and Southwold and Walberswick our favourites.
Oulton Broads good boat trips available to see the broads.
Ventured up to Wells next to the Sea and Burnham Market area. Enjoyed Cambridge too was a good day trip out.We will be booking to stay again next year many thanks for your warm hospitality.

Arrived at the barn to be welcomed with a tray of fresh bread, eggs, milk, cereal, butter and jam.
The owners Martin and Jane could not have made our stay more welcoming.
The barn itself is spotlessly clean and well equipped with everything you could need.
Very quiet, private and peaceful, great place to relax.
It only took us two OAP,s 15min walk into Loddon, where you can get great fish and chips as well as a good sit down meal from the White Horse and a pint from the Angel!
The bus stop is 5 min from the barn where you can easily go into Norwich and Beccles.
We would highly recommend Stubbs barn.

Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5
A well converted and exceedingly well fitted out and furnished barn; clean, comfortable and well presented. One of the best properties that we have rented in the UK. The owners could not do more to ensure a pleasant stay. This area of England has many beautiful towns and villages and this property makes an ideal base for exploring.
