The Loose Box
Barsham • Sleeps 4 • Dogs welcome
Located within the Barsham Barns complex, The Loose Box is a well-appointed, contemporary barn conversion offering single level accommodation for up to 4 guests. With 2 individually designed, delightful bedrooms, an open plan living area and a private, enclosed courtyard garden, this property is perfect for small families or couples looking for a secluded retreat nestled in the heart of the Norfolk countryside.
The Loose Box is nestled in the heart of the Norfolk countryside in the quiet and secluded village of North Barsham. Forming part of the Barsham Barns complex, The Loose Box originally housed a smithy and some stables for the estate’s heavy horses. Now it is a small yet roomy, modern barn conversion. Located on the edge of the complex with its own private courtyard, this bolthole is perfect as a couples retreat or a country getaway for small families or friends.
This rural retreat is a haven for nature lovers, walkers, cyclists, and keen ornithologists. Overlooking the Stiffkey River valley, you have an abundance of nature and wildlife right on your doorstep. Put your boots on or hop on your bike and you can wind your way along the quiet country lanes and explore the neighbouring villages of East Barsham, Houghton St Giles and Little Walsingham. You can also visit the local Barsham Brewery just along the road at West Barsham. Alternatively, jump in your car and within 5 minutes you can be in the market town of Fakenham, or take a 15-minute drive North and you will be on the glorious North Norfolk coast with the sand between your toes and the wind in your hair!
The open plan living area blends together the kitchen, dining area and lounge into one social space. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need for a self-catering holiday including an integrated fridge/freezer, built-in oven and induction hob, integrated dishwasher, microwave, toaster, and kettle. The circular dining table seats four guests while the lounge has two comfortable sofas, a TV and a selection of board games and books to provide some light entertainment. The lounge area also boasts a large picture window overlooking the enclosed garden and allowing the room to be filled with natural light.
