An idyllic, 18th Century romantic Norfolk hideaway - the perfect bolt holt for couples or family to escape to at any time of the year. With a wealth of exposed beams, an old inglenook fireplace and quirky features throughout, The Beekeeper's Cottage is a sensory delight.
A former bakehouse, completely renovated by the owners in 2022 to a very high standard, the cottage is beautifully presented with an emphasis on calm colours and cool country styling, with a mix of antique and restored furniture which creates a relaxing and comfortable retreat. The walls are curved, the oak beams are bleached, the bedrooms are vaulted and dressed in fine linens and the streamlined kitchen has Quartz worktops.
On the ground floor, guests are spoilt for choice with two seating areas; a glazed garden room to suit the summer months, and a very cosy sitting room with a wood burning stove for when the days become cooler and the nights draw in. The galley kitchen is well-equipped and the dining room next door has a farmhouse table for when you want to dine in and share some delicious local fayre. In keeping with an old property, the wet room style shower room is on this level too, but is smart and modern.
As you climb the stairs to the first floor, notice the handrail carved from a tree branch; a beautiful work of art. The two bedrooms (double and full-size twin beds) share the convenience of a cloakroom sitting between the two. Outside, to the back of the cottage, is a garden area with dining furniture available for those balmy days when an outdoor meal is a delicious option.
Barney is a quiet, pretty village just inland from North Norfolk's beautiful coastline, where there are miles of walks to enjoy whilst taking in the stunning wildlife that visits these shores, some lovely villages to visit that all have their own individual personality, an endless selection of fantastic places to eat and shopping delights in the Georgian villages of Holt and Burnham Market to enjoy. The quiet lanes around Barney are ideal for cyclists to explore and the cottage has a secure bike shed if you want to bring your own bikes.
