Privately situated within the grounds of Felmingham Hall, a fine Grade II listed Elizabethan manor house, are Felmingham Hall Barns: two award-winning holiday properties within a stunning 18th century barn conversion. Quietly located at the end of a long drive off a country lane, the barns stand within their own south-facing walled garden, in a tranquil setting, surrounded by farmland. The barns are approached via a grape and laburnum covered pergola.
Forming a major part of this conservation award-winning conversion, Long Barn is a light and spacious holiday retreat featuring a huge 30' high vaulted drawing room with imposing fireplace, heating and double doors to front and rear gardens and terrace. From the adjoining dining room, double doors lead onto a covered loggia - for al fresco dining - which overlooks the private south-facing walled garden with views to the Hall. There are inter-connecting doors between Long Barn and Dovecote which sleeps six guests.
Once the home of William Talman, architect of Chatsworth and Master of the Works to the court of James I, Felmingham Hall was built in 1569 and is one of the earliest examples of Elizabethan architecture in North Norfolk. It stands in unspoilt countryside not far from the National Trust's Blickling and Felbrigg estates, and is an ideal location from which to explore the renowned coastline of Norfolk, only 20 minutes by car.
