  • About the property

    The Old School House is a beautifully converted barn set in a peaceful spot in rural Norfolk. Here, you will feel just enough off-the-beaten-track to totally unwind, yet you’ll be within walking distance of an excellent pub that serves delicious food for when you fancy a change of scene. It’s the perfect romantic retreat and features a private, outdoor hot tub where a dip will be accompanied by dreamy views of wildflower meadows, the owner’s paddocks and the countryside beyond. Contemporary, individual styling is matched by luxurious touches including the sumptuous freestanding bath that takes pride of place in the bedroom suite. Meanwhile, there are lots of beautiful walks nearby or the stunning North Norfolk coastline just a little further.

  • The space

    A rustic meets contemporary style is found throughout this luxurious barn where design details include exposed beams, vintage furniture, a retro orange Smeg fridge and soft furnishings in a traditional Turkish design. The Old School House is anything but ordinary.

    The large, open plan living space is light and airy and features a sitting area where you can kick off your shoes and get comfy on the oversized Chesterfield sofa, warm up in front of the flickering flames of the wood burner and admire views over your garden.

    The kitchen area features handcrafted units for a bespoke look and is well equipped with Smeg appliances and everything you could need to prepare a romantic dinner. The quirky dining table and retro chairs suit casual dining and meals made for sharing.

    Upstairs there’s a beautiful bedroom suite where you will enjoy a great night’s sleep in the super-king-size, custom-made bed, while a chair is conveniently placed by the window to take in the views outside whenever the mood takes you. The en-suite bathroom is impressive and features a freestanding bath set beneath a large window that overlooks the garden, as well as two stone basins, a walk-in rainfall shower and underfloor heating.

    The French doors in the sitting room lead out to the outside space which is equally as impressive as the inside. The private patio is designed for enjoying outdoor living whatever the weather with exposed beams and rafters that lend an air of rustic charm, as well as shelter from the elements as you relax in the wood-fired hot tub after a day out walking. On warm evenings, there’s nothing better than firing up the barbecue and cooking up your supper to enjoy beneath the stars.

Local Info

The neighbourhood

The barn enjoys a rural location in a small village with a shop, pet shop and a post office. Two pubs renowned for good food can be found within 2.5 miles, the nearest being just a mile away.

The market town of King’s Lynn is approximately 7 miles away and is steeped in history. The best place to learn more is at the Stories of Lynn visitor attraction. One of the highlights is the Old Gaol House where the town’s most notorious citizens were imprisoned.
Afterwards, enjoy some fresh air in The Walks, Kings Lynn’s historic 17-hectare park that boasts a unique 15th-century chapel and a grade ll-listed church. Or, take a ferry trip to see the maritime landscape of the King’s Lynn quayside.

For nature-lovers, West Norfolk’s coastal and countryside nature reserves are a must. If you like birdwatching you’ll be in your element at the RSPB’s Twitchwell, Snettisham Coastal Park or Ouse Washes that all attract a host of waterfowl. Meanwhile, at Welney Wetland Centre there are daily swan feeds, or hire a canoe for a self-guided exploration of a wetland area that isn’t accessible by foot.

Watatunga Wildlife Reserve, about 6 miles away from The Old School House, makes another great day out. Join an expert guide for a safari experience by buggy around the wetlands of this special conservation project that works to protect endangered species of deer, antelope and birds.

To explore the region’s royal connections, visit the Sandringham Estate to look around the house and gardens. Don’t forget to pop into the shop to pick up preserves, confectionery and liqueurs, many made from ingredients from the wider Estate.

If you’re feeling more energetic, there’s a 9-hole pitch and putt course at Tilney Sports or roller-skating at Skaters Wisbech – both about 3.5 miles away from The Old School House. Or, go for a bracing walk on Snettisham Beach – when the sun begins to set it’s a particularly beautiful place to be.

Getting around

Due to the rural location, a car is essential. If you’re bringing your bikes, you can join the National Cycle route about 2 miles away from The Old School House to explore Norfolk at your leisure.
