About this property

The Heydon is situated in a quintessential, rural setting close to the village of Roughton and barely two miles from the premier coastal resort of bustling Cromer. This delightful cottage is a converted farm building forming part of a small complex of nine barns. With shared use of a heated indoor pool, this hideaway is a perfect base from which to explore the delights that North Norfolk has to offer, at any time of year.

The Heydon is situated in a quintessential, rural setting close to the village of Roughton and barely two miles from the premier coastal resort of bustling Cromer. This delightful cottage is a converted farm building forming part of a small complex of nine barns, signposted Jonas Farm Barns. With shared use of a heated indoor pool, this hideaway is a perfect base from which to explore the delights that North Norfolk has to offer, at any time of year.

The barn is on one level and full of character with flint walls, vaulted ceilings and beams, and it is warm and cosy with underfloor heating. Comfortable and well-equipped with an enclosed and attractive courtyard garden, the property enjoys great views across quiet, open farmland leading to the coast. The locality is good for wildlife as guests have spotted hares, red kite, and red-legged partridges running round the site. The pool is fabulous with private one hour swim slots bookable daily in the pool entrance when you arrive. Guests love the rare opportunity to enjoy the privacy of a one hour swim to themselves. The 13 m x 6m heated pool is open daily between 9:00am and 18:00pm, apart from in January. Outside the pool complex is a play area, featuring a wooden climbing frame and swings.

The Heydon is a wonderfully romantic retreat for couples, but equally suitable for someone wishing to holiday alone. The area is beautiful with the National Trust properties of Felbrigg and Blickling close by and the impressive Sheringham Park is a short drive away. Roughton has a petrol station and shop, open 24/7, and a pub serving food. Cromer has an abundance of cafes, restaurants, and some of the best fish and chips for miles around.

The Heydon’s neighbouring property, the equally charming Felmingham, accommodates four guests, and booked with The Heydon for larger groups.

    Very pleasant, clean stay. Visited local areas and eaten at New Inn – good home cooked food, also fish & chip shop opposite. A good beach to let the dog off Overstrand. Good holiday break. Would come back, thanks. We liked the idea of booing for swimming pool.

    I just wish I had discovered this place before! It was perfect for me, and that pool... what a brilliant idea to be able to book your slot! I do hope to return - sooner rather than later.

    Great week with good weather. Packed lots into our short break. Highlights were; Horsey Gap, where there are hundreds of seals, Holt, Burnham Market, Blakeney, and Brancaster Staithe.
