Self Catering Accommodation in North Norfolk, Sleeps 6
Myrtle's Barn, Briningham, Norfolk
Dereham Road, NR24 2QJ – 52.8688, 1.0234
Myrtle’s Barn opened in May 2022. It is located in the former farm in Briningham and has amazing views across the valley. Myrtle’s Barn is next door to Harold’s Barn and if taken together become an ideal base for two families wishing to holiday together and explore Norfolk whilst having the privacy of their own property.
Myrtle’s Barn is available at a discounted price out of season for 2 or 4 guests. One bedroom will be locked. Please contact Victoria to make a booking or use the online booking system and make a note that you would like two bedrooms only and Victoria will adjust the price accordingly.
Myrtle’s Barn (named after Edward’s grandmother) is located at the former farm in Briningham, just off the B1110 (Dereham to Holt road) and looks across the valley over fields and more fields. The barn sleeps six in three bedrooms, all ensuite.
The Master Bedroom is upstairs. The room is dominated by floor to ceiling glass windows opening out to the garden. It has a King size bed and a large ensuite bathroom with shower and bath.
The Second Bedroom is also upstairs and is a large room with high ceilings. It has a Super King bed which can be split into two single beds. There is an ensuite shower room.
The Third Bedroom is downstairs in the new extension. It has an ensuite shower room with a tiled floor. Like the Master Bedroom it enjoys plenty of natural light from the floor to ceiling glass. (The curtains are finished with black out lining on these windows and doors to aid that all important holiday lie in!) This bedroom has a Super King bed which can be split into two single beds. All the bedrooms and bathrooms are finished and furnished to a very high standard. All the bedrooms are fully carpeted. Upstairs bathrooms are also carpeted. All velux windows have powered black out blinds. Each bedroom has plenty of cupboard storage for clothes and bits and pieces and bedside tables. All the bathrooms have electric towel rails, electric mirrors and shaver and toothbrush sockets. We provide all bed linen, bath towels, hand towels and bath mats.
Entry to Myrtle’s Barn is in the new extension into a hall, off which is a downstairs toilet. There is plenty of room for coats, hats and boots in the hall, as well as a large cupboard housing the washing machine/tumble dryer etc.
The hall leads into the kitchen which is partly open to the main living area. The kitchen is very modern in design. As with The Pig House – the kitchen has been designed by a local kitchen company (Arcadia) and the kitchen has been manufactured by Siematic in Germany. There is a large breakfast bar (three stools from Quadrtropi) with a Bora integrated hob (as in The Pig House). There is plenty of cupboard and drawer space. The kitchen has a bottle fridge, huge Bosch fridge freezer, Bosch integrated double oven and microwave and integrated dishwasher.
All of the kitchens in our properties are very well equipped with good quality cooking equipment. I used to be a professional cook – so think that self-catering holiday homes should have good cooking equipment and all that is necessary to make a great meal with!
The open plan living area is dominated by the enormously high ceiling with four striking pendant lights… suspended from quite a height! The glass sided oak stair case heads upwards to a glass sided bridge which links the two upstairs bedrooms. The dining table sits below this bridge and comes from Neptune. It is 245cm long and will generously seat 6 people and happily sit quite a few more! Adjacent to the dining area is the living area, slightly separated by two oak posts which help to support the upper floor. The living area has two large three seater sofas and a single chair. There is a 50” television and a woodburner to help create that cosy feeling in the winter. (Wood is provided during the winter).
Outside Myrtle’s Barn there is a large fenced garden and a large patio area, positioned carefully to make the most of the afternoon and evening sun, with Bramblecrest outdoor dining furniture. There is ample off-road parking, an EV charging point and car port.
Myrtle’s Barn is a perfect base for a family of up to six to come and stay. Myrtle’s Barn is located next to Harold’s Barn which also sleeps six. Taken together the two barns offer two family groups an excellent base from which to holiday together whilst having the privacy of their own property.
Out of season guests may choose to have one bedroom locked and receive a discounted price. Please contact Victoria for details. The barn is equally perfect for three couples (all super king beds, all ensuite) to get away for a week or weekend break. We are surrounded by gastropubs and other great places to eat, all within easy driving distance.
Briningham is ideally located for exploring Norfolk – especially the North Norfolk coastline – Blakeney, Cromer, Sheringham, Wells-Next-to-Sea, Holkham and equally well positioned for inland attractions such as Roar!!! (Dinosaur Adventure Park), Bewilderwood, Pensthorpe Natural Park as well as Norwich for city centre shopping and of course Holt (just up the road) for a more boutique shopping experience.
Fantastic weekend! The accommodation was outstanding and is larger than expected from seeing the images on line. Every little detail and touches have been very much appreciated. Lemon cake was so good along with the marmalade. Definitely will return, one of the group is already booked for 2023! Surrounding views amazing…. Thank you!!!
