A beautifully updated barn conversion property: a peaceful sanctuary for two guests, located in the grounds of the owners’ working farm in the inland village of Wellingham.
This enchanting conversion enjoys a quiet farmland location in rural Norfolk, on the edge of the small village of Wellingham. The countryside surrounding the farm is peppered with pretty villages, many of which have welcoming pubs serving local food and drinks. The nearest of these is in the neighbouring village of Weasenham St Peter, which is situated three miles away. The property is ideally situated for those who want to enjoy spending time at the seaside, with both the north and west Norfolk coasts located within a thirty-minute drive, allowing guests to easily enjoy day trips to Wells-next-the-Sea, King’s Lynn, and Hunstanton. Other places of interest in the area include the royal estate at Sandringham, the handsome Palladian manor house of Holkham Hall, and the historic market town of Fakenham.
Guests approach the front door of this idyllic barn conversion cottage through the pretty gardens which are part of the National Garden Scheme and maintained to a fantastic standard throughout the year. Stepping inside, guests will find themselves in an attractive open-plan space with a vaulted beamed ceiling and whitewashed fireplace with a warming wood burner. A well-chosen collection of ornate rugs, artworks, and antique furnishings add a personal touch to the room and gives the space a delightful sense of character. A deep, inviting sofa sits under the beams and allows guests to cosy up at night, perhaps with a favourite film on the TV/DVD. The kitchen area is set off to one side of the room and offers a fantastic range of equipment including an oven, hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment, and washing machine. A door way leads through to the bedroom, a romantic sanctuary with a four-poster bed and more of the owner’s unique artistic pieces. The en-suite bathroom offers the best of both worlds, with a bath, separate shower cubicle, and WC.
Patio doors from the living area open onto a raised terrace seating area with a table and chairs allowing guests to enjoy alfresco drinks whilst taking in the beautiful surroundings of the gardens. Guests can enjoy access to the owner’s four acres of oasis-like gardens, which are part of the National Garden Scheme. There is a gorgeous rose garden, a small arboretum, a carp pond, and an exotic gravel garden, as well as a paddock which is home to a herd of zika deer and informal gardens with free-range hens and rhea. There is off-road parking for two cars.
