About BimbleBox Barn

BimbleBox Barn sleeps ten guests in five bedrooms and is a beautiful barn conversion that dates back to the 17th Century. With a garden to the front rear and sides including a six seater hot tub and log burner for cosy winter nights, this is a perfect holiday retreat at any time of year for friends or families who want to enjoy a short break or longer holiday together.

Furnished and equipped to a high standard, BimbleBox Barn still retains lots of original character and charm and boasts exposed beams, oak flooring, feature brickwork walls, an electric range in the kitchen and two log burners, providing a wonderful cosy atmosphere. The farmhouse-style kitchen/dining room brings the outside in, with its bi-folding doors that open out onto the patio area - ideal for alfresco dining. Attached to the barn, is Upper Barn Stable which sleeps two guests and can be rented with BimbleBox Barn to accommodate parties of twelve.

With its charming market square, Reepham is only a mile from BimbleBox Barn and provides restaurants, traditional inns, interesting shops and tearooms. Set amongst beautiful countryside, the town is ideal for those who enjoy walking and cycling. The Marriott's Way footpath, extending some twenty miles, can be accessed locally and provides a peaceful route through woodland and fields.

The coastal areas of Blakeney and Cley are nearby, offering more superb walking and good bird watching opportunities. The traditional seaside resort of Cromer is nearby with its Blue Flag sandy beaches, fantastic seafood restaurants, promenade and famous Cromer Crabs!

A little further afield but still within easy reach by car is the historic City of Norwich with a great shopping centre, excellent selection of restaurants and impressive cathedral.

Other local attractions include:

  • Blackney National Nature Reserve - A three and a half mile long sand and shingle spit which is a haven for wildlife including colonies of breeding terns, migrant birds and common and grey seals that can also be seen.
  • Salle Church and Anne Boleyn - A glorious ten minute walk away, Salle Church gained its fame from a legend which claims that Anne Boleyn's body was removed from the Tower after her execution and was reburied in the church beneath a black marble tombstone.
  • Morston Quay - This small quay provides access to the coastal path where you can enjoy extensive views across the large areas of saltmarsh and Blakeney Point. At high tide boat trips can be taken to see the seals.
  • Norfolk Broads and Wroxham - Known as the 'Gateway to the Norfolk Broads', Wroxham is a small, bustling village famed for having the largest village store in the world! There are plenty of pubs and restaurants and day boat hire is available to explore the waterways.
  • Blickling Hall - Sitting in the village of Blickling and managed by the National Trust, this stately home takes you on a voyage of discovery, allowing you to experience four centuries of history.

Centrally located, BimbleBox Barn is an ideal holiday retreat for those looking to explore this lovely part of Norfolk.
