Within 2 miles of the beach, peacefully tucked away along the North Norfolk coast, surrounded by open countryside, these traditional Norfolk brick and flint barns (refs 30395, 30396, 30397, 30398, UKC660 and UK36552) have been converted, boasting character features, oak flooring, wood burners and equipped to provide the warmest welcome and a very relaxing holiday. With the owners living on-site, each barn has been carefully designed to retain its own privacy, and boasts a fenced courtyard garden with seating furniture and a barbecue. The seaside village of Walcott is within walking distance, and just a short drive away are the traditional seaside towns of Cromer, Sheringham, Mundesley and Sea Palling. Guests are welcome to enjoy the 1-acre of shared meadow grassland for play, relaxing or exploring. The site is abundant in nature and wildlife, with its own resident barn owl. Quiet lanes and footpaths surround the barns to offer excellent walking and cycling direct from the doorstep. The City of Norwich is approximately a 30-minute drive away, and has many attractions including excellent shopping, cathedral, castle museum, theatre, art galleries, cafés and restaurants. Wroxham, 12 miles, capital of the famous Norfolk Broads is great for daily boat hire, river trips and waterside cafés. Fantastic family days out can be enjoyed at Cromer, 12 miles, where there is a promenade, pier, seasonal entertainment, beach, Amazona Zoo and RNLI working lifeboat station. Take a boat trip from Blakeney Quay to visit the basking seal colonies or go crabbing along the quayside. Golf nearby. Beach 2 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

This was a lovely and very well maintained cottage which was exactly like the photos, no surprises.. The owners were helpful, friendly and there was a lovely arrival pack left for us. Beds were super comfy and all amenities worked well and on point and the water was always hot. It’s a very quiet location which I really appreciated. I would stay here again for sure.

We had a lovely stay at Squirrel’s Drey. The owners live on site however we did not feel at all imposed upon which I love as we have stayed at other accommodation where you feel slightly watched. The accommodation was so a comfortable and a lovely home from home. The little details such as the welcome hamper and icecream van visit really makes it special. Extremely clean as wel which was great. We will be back again, thank you for our hospitality.

The accommodation is clean, spacious, comfortable and with high quality fittings. In a fine rural setting, but narrow access roads are perhaps an inevitable consequence of such a position. Good communal parking space and a small but pleasant outside sitting area exclusive to the property. Probably our only criticism would be in relation to fridge capacity, which seemed more aligned to 2 person rather than 4/5 person occupation - had to make some hard choices between food or gin/wine stocks!
