The Wash House offers a perfect base for exploring the Norfolk coastline as well as Norwich with all its amenities.

A high end, spacious, contemporary, single-storey barn conversion, boasting views across open countryside, and just 2 miles from the sea. Nestled within the grounds of the owners’ home, The Wash House stands detached and provides a peaceful retreat with all the necessary conveniences needed to enjoy a great holiday. Set away from the road, making it perfect for a good night’s sleep, yet still close to all the action, as the pretty seaside town of Cromer is just 2 miles away. Here you will find a wide, sandy beach, a much photographed Edwardian seafront and pier, as well as and lots of places to eat, drink and shop. You can also enjoy a trip to Amazonia, a unique zoo featuring more than 200 South American animals. Travel east or west along the coast to find a string of coastal towns and villages offering sandy and shingle beaches, grassy dunes, marshes and quays. You will also find yourself close enough to enjoy a trip on the famous Norfolk Broads National Park, where you can hire a boat for the day or join a tour and just watch the world float by. With lots of National Trust sites such as the Blickling Hall Estate and a Norman castle, as well as numerous museums in Norwich, history buffs will be spoilt for choice. The Wash House is the perfect place to retreat back to after a busy day, perhaps to dream of adventures yet to come. Beach 2 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    Fabulously modern barn conversion in a stunning hilltop location. The views were amazing! Had a wonderful weekend celebrating my 50th birthday with 4 of my closest friends. The Wash House is conveniently located for visiting Local villages and the coast. We loved venturing out as well as enjoying breakfast and dinner party’s at the house. We felt so at home and were sad to leave. Would love to return as there are still so many nearby establishments that we didn’t get to visit. The open open plan living area is a wonderful space - perfect for entertaining. Even morning coffee was an absolute joy, chatting with friends against a back drop of open fields which were alive with bunnies and pheasants and the sun streaming in through the glass facade. Any negatives? Every woman needs more storage space and mirrors, particularly when there are five of you, but to be fair, this is a holiday bolthole, not home so I don’t want to be unfairly harsh. Recommendations: lunch at Byfords in Holt and afternoon tea at The Pheasant hotel. Breakers cafe in Cromer served up a mean all day, cooked breakfast too! The Gunton Arms was lovely although we never got around to eating dinner there! Next time 😃

    This is a great property. It's spacious and the stunning views throughout are brilliant. The log burner creates a lovely cosy place to relax and the furniture is great. The property could do with a some extra equipment in the kitchen such as baking trays etc. I'm not sure the saucepans are great quality as the induction hobs struggled at times. I can only comment on the condition I found it in and I'm not sure there could have been much of a changeover clean. I appreciate its a difficult property to maintain, the floor space is so vast, the windows are huge and the ceilings are very high. The windows were quite dirty, the floor was dirty and there were cobwebs everywhere. I only highlight this incase somebody other than the owners handled the changeover, they would like to know. The property could do with some extra towels, they were about 4 or 5 and dotted around the property in a few different locations. I also found 2 tea towels which again isn't a huge deal but it was a small nuance. The batteries in the remote failed with no replacements, no DVD player which would be nice, extra firelighters and kindling would be good. In general I think just some better equipment throughout would take this rating from a 7/10 to a 9. For a property this impressive if a few of these points are addressed I think it would make a huge improvement. I would definitely stay here again so the points made didn't make a big negative impact on our stay, I would just expect these things from such a great property to match its quality. Small things make a big difference.

    We had a great time at The Wash House with our group of friends. It provides extremely spacious and stylish accommodation. The views from the living area are absolutely stunning.
