Romance and rusticity are the order of the day in this luxury detached self-catering barn conversion in this popular and quiet village right on the coast in North Norfolk. Formerly the village blacksmiths, it has been sensitively converted into a cosy couples’ retreat. Perfect for walkers, cyclists, bird and wildlife lovers, it is a fabulous base for exploring the whole of the North Norfolk coast.
Set in peaceful Holme-next-the-Sea, with its stunning sandy beach and village pub, The Old Smithy retains its authentic character, but has plenty of modern touches too. With its flint walls, cosy nooks, original features and peaceful setting, The Old Smithy offers a sunny front terrace and wildlife garden, yet comes with unexpected touches too, such as the stunning glass floor in the spacious bedroom.
Draw the big wooden barn door across at night and you'll feel totally tucked away from the outside world! Hunker down together in front of the wood burning stove and large flat screen television with BT Vision and Blu-Ray DVD player, or turn on the fabulous Sonos® music system and simply immerse yourselves in this pretty little abode.
With a calming décor and stunning first floor bedroom with vaulted ceiling and luxurious king-size bed and dressing area, you'll enjoy distant sea views across to Holme marshes. The glass ceiling panel in the centre of the room also provides a wonderful focal point. The open-plan hand-built kitchen is well-equipped and comes with a sit-up bar with stools and a separate dining area. The sitting room has two comfortable chairs and a squashy leather sofa, perfect for snuggling down in front of the fire.
Outside the fully-enclosed side garden is dog-friendly and backs onto the marshes with uninterrupted views of the NWT Holme Nature Reserve. With a sunken patio area, lawn and even a bird hide, the garden offers the opportunity to relax and enjoy the seclusion and location of The Old Smithy, whilst also enjoying the bird and wildlife that surrounds it. But if you do need to keep in touch with the outside world, there is good WiFi and an EE signal booster in the property. This gorgeous barn is just perfect as a honeymoon retreat.
