This super property boasts a high standard bathroom, well equipped kitchen, sumptuous bedroom, vaulted ceilings and high standard soft furnishings. Our photos and superb guest reviews speak for themselves! If you are looking for a tranquil base to explore Norfolk and Suffolk from then look no further. Pheasant Barn has origins dating back to the 17th/18th centuries. This renovated 1 bedroom barn conversion affords traditional accommodation; exposed beams and Norfolk wood floors sit alongside modern appliances - Pheasant Barn is all on ground floor level making it potentially suitable for wheelchair users or those with limited mobility (ask for more details). The barn is ideally suited to a couple. On entering the barn you will be greeted by the high vaulted and beamed ceiling of the kitchen/dining area. This leads through to the living area with french doors on to a private patio. A door off the dining area takes you to a well appointed double bedroom with bathroom off. The new spacious bathroom has a large shower bath with power shower over. To the outside is a patio, lawned garden, BBQ and garden furniture from which to enjoy the rural views after a day exploring. Wifi is provided free of charge - we have good data speed suitable for our Smart TV's, etc to watch your own Netflix, etc. Alborough House Holiday Barns sit in the rural hamlet of Forncett St Mary just 9 miles south of Norwich and close to the Suffolk/Norfolk borders. Nearby attractions include Banham Zoo, Steam museums at Bressingham and Forncett and Wymondham Abbey. The village of Long Stratton is 3 miles away with shops and facilities and the market Town of Diss is nearby. The medieval city of Norwich is some 9 miles north. Dunston Hall some 5 miles away has a wonderful Spa and Golf course (open to non-residents) . The famous Norfolk Broads are within easy reach and perfect for a day exploring on one of the many boats for hire. The Suffolk Heritage coast is under an hour away and includes the famous towns of Southwold and Aldeburgh, popular for their coloured beach houses, fashionable shops and beaches, including some of the best fish and chips around. Also within reach is the North Norfolk coast, including seaside towns such as Cromer and the pretty town of Wells next the sea, famous for crabbing along the quay, Blakeney and of course the beach and stately home at Holkham. Slightly further away is the Queens Christmas residence of Sandringham, but still easily accessible for a day trip. Our converted barns are situated in a quiet and rural setting perfect for those looking to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. Although rural, we are very well situated to be within striking distance of the many tourist attractions both Norfolk and Suffolk have to offer. Local villages offer some excellent pubs for those wanting to sample good food and real ales. Both our barns (see also Partridge Barn which is 2 bed + mezzanine sofa bed area) are equipped to high standards and offer the appealing combination of character features together with modern day central heating, kitchens and bathrooms. Both barns are equipped with hobs, fan ovens, microwaves, washing machines, irons/iron boards, TV and more. We are flexible with our accommodation and can offer sofa beds for young children in addition to the standard beds/bedrooms in our barns (please advise requirements prior to booking). We welcome well behaved dogs (see our terms and conditions for details) and each barn has its own self contained small garden. There is ample car parking available for our guests.More

About the neighbourhood
We are rurally located with superb views over open fields. Being close to the Norfolk/Suffolk borders, we are ideally placed to explore all the attractions of both counties from a tranquil base. There is a pub 30 minutes walk from the property at Forncett End (Jolly Farmers - dogs not allowed) and a dog friendly pub at Great Moulton (The Fox) which is a longer 45 minute walk for those who like a longer stroll. The roads by the property are very small and quiet making them perfect for walking or cycling. The area is very peaceful and there's lots of nature to observe. Altough we are rural, the major road networks are only 10 minutes away getting you to the city, market towns or coasts efficiently.
Getting around
Pheasant Barn is rurally located so you will need a car to get around. Norwich Park and Ride is approx 15 minutes away and taxi companies serve the area if required. The area is perfect for walking or cycling.
