This lovely single-level barn conversion is perfect for family or group holidays, situated in a wonderful rural setting just a short drive from the Norfolk coast.

The idyllic village of Melton Constable nestles in the heart of the Norfolk countryside, making it an ideal base for enjoying rural walks. The bustling Georgian town of Holt is just a short drive away (5 miles), and offers a fantastic variety of shops, restaurants and pubs as well as the 100 acre Holt Country Park. Other nearby attractions within 15 miles include the Blickling Estate, Pensthorpe Natural Park, Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure, the Muckleburgh Military Collection, the watermill at Letheringsett and the ruins of Baconsthorpe Castle and Binham Priory. The coast is just 8 miles away, and there are numerous wonderful beaches and towns to explore including Sheringham, Wells-next-the-Sea and Cromer. Nearby nature reserves include Cley Marshes and Blakeney.

On entering this attractive, light and inviting property, which has been built in the traditional Norfolk style and retains several original features including exposed brick walls, beamed ceilings and wooden flooring, you will find yourself in the spacious and welcoming open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. The lounge features comfortable seating, TV, DVD, iPod dock and is a wonderful space to unwind in with views out into the woods. Double doors lead to a small outside seating area. The heart of the room is occupied by a large brick chimney with a wood burner, behind which is the elegantly designed kitchen/diner, where you can enjoy a meal in style. The kitchen and utility room are well equipped with an oven, larder fridge/freezer, microwave, washer/dryer and dishwasher. Exploring further, you will find two cosy ground-floor bedrooms: a double room and a twin room, each en-suite. Stairs from the inner hall lead you up to the first-floor bedrooms: one double room and a twin room. There is also a family bathroom complete with a shower over the bath. Off the twin room is a mezzanine level with a glazed balustrade which is perfect to use as a second lounge.

Going outside, you will find a partly-walled lawn garden with flowers, shrubs, a charming summerhouse and garden furniture, allowing you to sit back and relax at the end of a great day. There is plenty of parking for up to 4 cars on the gravelled area immediately in front of the property.

Lace up your hiking boots and head straight out on group walks from your base. Drive almost 11 miles to spectacular Blickling Hall, near Aylsham. Walk in the picturesque gardens and grounds here and visit the fascinating Jacobean Hall. Venture almost 6 miles to the bustling market town of Holt, with its array of independent shops, cafes and restaurant. Dine out or buy fresh Norfolk produce to cook at home. Head a further 3.5 miles to Cley next the Sea (9.5 miles from your holiday home), where you can experience the great Norfolk skies and myriad of bird life as you walk out across the marshes to the sea. For a more traditional seaside experience, visit Sheringham, 12 miles away, where members of your group can sun themselves on the beach, paddle or swim in the sea and enjoy fish and chips or an ice-cream afterwards.

We had a great time the house is comfortable and does not lack anything, the master bedroom is 100%, whist the other two have drawbacks in that the second bedroom on the ground floor lacks a shower, you can wash your hair with the shower thats fitted but thats all and the family bathroom upstairs is difficult to stand up without bumping your head.

A beautiful barn conversion in a quiet countryside location but withing easy reach of the North Norfolk coast. A large living and kitchen area with plenty of space for us all. A good standard of equipment, roomy bedrooms on two floors. A useful lounge/balcony with a TV to keep teenagers happy with their own space upstairs. Plenty of parking and a pRead morerivate garden to sit in and BBQ. Hide

Weather was not great, however the Goat House was cosy and the log burner was wonderful. All the equipment one could need and the children loved the open mezzanine and the games box. Could do with a larger fridge as the wine fridge was not working otherwise all was great. Would book again.
