About the property

2 Bedrooms: 1 Double, 1 Twin, 1 Bathroom With Large Walk In Shower

Walnut Tree Farm is a 17th Century farmhouse in the pretty North Norfolk village of Swanton Abbott and in an ideal position to discover the many delights of the Norfolk. The capital of the Norfolk Broads, Wroxham is 5 miles away and the North Norfolk Heritage coast and the beaches of Cromer, Sheringham Mundesley are only a short drive away. We are within 30 minutes of Norwich for shopping and Waitrose at North Walsham. The holiday Barn comprises a self-contained barn at the end of a small range of farm buildings. The Barn, converted from an old dairy, and now providing comfortable accommodation for up to four people was awarded 4 **** Tourist board rating this year and recently received a Norfolk Society award for the renovation work. The barn, garden and courtyard have level floors throughout.

Why Sally Page chose North Norfolk & Coast

You will find that we are in a good position to visit Norfolk and Norwich, we are close to the beaches to Norwich and to the Broads, we are close to Blicking and Felbrigg Halls owned by the National Trust. We now have a magic museum at North Walsham and kids love Bewilderwood at Wroxham, all close by.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely cosy accommodation and in a good location for us to visit Norwich, the beaches and to hire a boat on The Broads.

Swanton Abbott is a quiet Norfolk village located 5 miles from the Norfolk Broads and 8 miles from the North Norfolk Beaches. Our favourites are Cromer (for the Pier), Overstrand, Stiffkey and Wells. You can shop locally at North Walsham (Waitrose and Sainsburys), Roys of Wroxham or Aylsham (Tescos) where you can catch the miniature stream railway to Wroxham to visit Roys Department Store or to enjoy a broads cruise or hire a day boat. You may wish to visit the Cathedral City of Norwich which is a mixture of old and new, being a medieval centre with two shopping malls and ' Norwich Lanes'. You can also visit the two National Trust properties of Blickling Hall and Felbrigg which are under half an hour's drive away. Lots of people bring their bikes and enjoy cycling on the quiet lanes. For children there is Wroxham Barns with its Junior Farm and craft barns and also Bewilderwood an outdoor adventure park both a short drive away. Swanton Abbott is well situated to visit all of these places without having to drive far.

Other Activities: Canoeing
