Tradition meets Comfort
These seven attractive cottages have been skilfully reconstructed or converted from 17th Century barns situated on the outskirts of the small village of Runcton Holme in West Norfolk, near the farmhouse on our 600 acre arable farm.
Whilst retaining the charm of many traditional features and interesting memorabilia, they offer a high quality of comfort, rural views and an ideal base to explore the variety of attractions in and around Norfolk.
Thorpland Manor Barns are peacefully situated on the edge of the Fens overlooking grass meadows and arable fields and with beautiful sunset views, yet easily accessible to the A.10.
You might prefer to stay closer to home and do a little walking, bird watching, play a game of pool or table football, swim in the outdoor heated swimming pool open from May 1st to end of September, watch over the children as they enjoy themselves playing on the wooden tower equipped with slide, swings, rock climbing wall and many other features in the children’s play area, or fish in the farm reservoir, stocked with Carp.
You might just wish to relax peacefully in the sunshine by the pool with the sound of birds singing in the countryside or enjoy the warm, soothing water of our deluxe spa then relax in the sauna to gradually ease away the stress of every day life. The choice is yours.
Shops, Post Office and good Pubs serving delicious food are all within 2 miles.
There is a resident horse nearby and ponies or cattle might be grazing in the summer on the grass meadow at the front of the barns.
To keep the cottage atmosphere the “Barns” are furnished with locally crafted solid pine furniture and all the rooms are attractively decorated.
All beds are made up ready for your arrival and bath and hand towels are provided but please bring your own towels to use around the swimming pool, spa and sauna.
Cots and highchairs are available for children under two years of age at no extra charge. We love well-behaved children but do not accept dogs or other pets.
So whether you want a Summer Holiday where you can enjoy a barbecue and relax in the peace and sunshine on your own patio, or a winter break where you know that you can come back to somewhere comfortable, warm and cosy then “Thorpland Manor Barns” is the ideal choice.
