Inside the cottage

Walnut Tree Barn in Norfolk (photo 2) Walnut Tree Barn in Norfolk (photo 3) Walnut Tree Farm is a 17th Century farmhouse in the pretty North Norfolk village of Swanton Abbott, an ideal position to visit many different aspects of Norfolk with good pubs for food close by. The barn is well placed to visit lots of places in Norfolk including the Norfolk Broads as Wroxham is only five miles away where boats can be hired or you can visit Roys of Wroxham, the North Norfolk Heritage coast is a short drive - Cromer and Sheringham, being particularly close, and Felbrigg and Blickling Hall, two stunning National Trust properties are also close. We have good pubs nearby for food, with local towns having weekly markets. You can travel to Norwich by train from Worsted or drive to the park and ride. Norwich is renowned for its shops, cathedral, market and Norman castle. Well behaved dogs welcome (by prior arrnagement please).

The barn is beamed with level access thoughout and is suitable for wheelchair access. The garden and courtyard areas are level and cars can be parked close to the entrance.
The garden is south facing and the courtyard area is a suntrap.
Walnut Tree Barn welcomes dogs by prior arrangement but we ask they are kept on leads while outside as we have our own animals, including chickens, However, we have easy access to public footpaths for dog-walking.

The barn has a private level garden and sunny courtyard area with chairs. Parking for two cars with access close to the barn entrance. More parking is available if required and we have an outside utility room where bikes can be stored..

Surrounding area

Walnut Tree Barn in Norfolk (photo 4) Swanton Abbott is centrally located for the beaches of North Norfolk, visiting the Norfolk Broads and shopping in Norwich with its two shopping malls, market, old lanes, Cathedral and Castle. There is a Sainsburys and Waitrose at North Walsham, a short drive away. You will find yourself centrally located to visit any of the above. We particularly like Overstrand a lovely beach near Cromer with a good pub, cafe and lovely walks. You can walk to Cromer have something to eat and then walk back along the cliffs if the tide is in. Holt is another good place to visit with interesting small shops and good places to eat. The good thing about Swanton Abbott is its location so you can easily visit a difference place each day. It is three miles from Wroxham, the heart of the Norfolk Broads. Supermarkets to be found in Wroxham (Roys) and North Walsham (Waitrose, Sainsburys and Lidls). Attractions for children are Wroxham Barns, (with junior farm), Rossi's Leisure (North Walsham), with ten pin bowling and Stompers indoor play area, Amazona Zoo in Cromer, Bewilderwood in Hoveton and a range of Norfolk sandy beaches only eight miles away. For adults National Trust at Blickling Hall and Felbrigg Hall, and both Norwich Cathedral and Norwich Castle. Cromer offers The Pier Show, which is the only end of pier show in Europe. Cromer pier was also voted Britain's National Pier of the Year 2015.
