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.

Attractions and nearby amenities

There are many local pubs where good food is served; The Gunton Arms in Roughton, The Poachers Pocket in Bacton and The Mermaid’s Slipper in Stalham all come recommended, and if you fancy fish and chips, the go-to place is Bacton Fish and Chip Shop.
The Norfolk Broads are close by where there is an abundance of wildlife for you to see; you might be able to have a glimpse of one of Britain’s largest, rarest and most beautiful butterflies, the Swallowtail, watch playful otters and darting Kingfishers, and the reeds are filled with birdsong.
If you fancy a bit of history, visit the Henry Blogg Museum in Cromer where you will learn all about the RNLI and the lifeboat man who served for fifty three years on Cromer’s lifeboats and saved over 873 lives.
Have a lovely walk along the cliffs to Cromer Lighthouse from the old lifeboat house and although the lighthouse is closed, you have excellent views back over Cromer.
The National Trust have several properties in the area; Blickling Hall is a highlight with its formal gardens, stunning views and the cycle trail through the park where you may find lost buildings and watch the wildlife.
At Blakeney National Nature Reserve on the north Norfolk coast you will find plenty of wildlife as it home to seals and terns, and if the tides are in your favour, take a boat trip further out to the seals. The village of Blakeney with its pretty harbour and beautiful architecture is a photographer’s dream.
