This contemporary conversion of a 200 year old brick and flint barn situated in the small village of Ridlington is one mile from the nearest beach at Walcott. Big Sky Barn is suitable for families or couples seeking to escape to the beautiful North Norfolk coast.

Big Sky Barn is a contemporary conversion of a 200 year old brick and flint barn with a distinctive curved zinc roof. The accommodation is all on the ground floor (although there is a step from the kitchen area to the sitting area) with an open plan living, kitchen and dining areas and two en-suite bedrooms. Large sliding doors open from the living area on to the front of the property where there is a large patio area and lawn.

This space is fully enclosed and so safe for children. A further small garden with patio is found through the master bedroom's sliding doors. The barn over looks stunning countryside and there are some lovely walks to enjoy direct from the property.

Riddlington is a small village approximately 20 miles north east of the cathedral city of Norwich. Lying just one mile inland from the stunning North Norfolk coastline, the barn is conveniently located to reach Walcott Beach, while dog-friendly Happisbugh Beach is just a bit further down the coast. The Norfolk Broads National Park has over 125 miles of navigable lock free waterways, home to an abundance of birds and wildlife.

Nearby North Walsham, just 15 minutes' drive away, has all the local amenities needed for your stay. A little further afield are the pretty market towns of Aylsham, Holt and Sheringham which all have a wide range of shops and places to eat. Bromholm Barn, sleeping four guests, is also available to book at this location.
