Welcome to Wheatacre Hall Barns, one of the leading holiday destinations for luxury holiday cottages in Norfolk. We are located in Waveney Valley near the southern tip of Norfolk Broads close to the city of Norwich. Our cottages are special – they are all made out of converted barns that are hundreds of years old. We retained most of the original features in order to retain authenticity but they are all luxuriously furnished with everything you could ever want in a holiday.
Many people choose Wheatacre Hall Barns because of how beautiful and quiet it is. If you are a busy professional you will love it – all around you are nothing but clear skies and beautiful, green, rolling countryside where you can enjoy long walks. Better yet, there are great, sandy beaches less than 5 minutes walk from the cottages where you can enjoy some sun. You can also head to the city of Norwich – there is plenty you can explore in this historical place. We are located near many tourist attractions, some of them within walking distance.
The cottages are in different sizes, so they can accommodate both small and large groups. They are perfect for families because there is so much for kids to do. They can bring along their bikes and spend their days cycling around, they can go to the beach, there are several theme parks around that they can visit or they can choose to play in our fitness barns which have lots of toys. There is a play barn for younger kids.
Our cottages are fully furnished with a fully kitted kitchen so that our guests can have everything that they need to prepare their own meals. You only need to bring your supplies – everything else, including towels and toiletries are provided. The town of Beccles is nearby and everything that you need to prepare your meals can be found in the farmer’s market. They also have all kinds of shops, and you can meet the locals in the pubs.
We are very proud of our 1100 acre dairy farm. On it we have 200 cows, 12,000 free range chickens, some pigs and we also grow a variety of food crops and grass to feed the cows. Kids love to come and watch different chores done and also learn where their food comes from. They are welcome to watch the milking very early in the morning and in the evening. We sell all our produce in local markets and guests are welcome to buy fresh produce for home.
Although we are in rural Britain we are not cut off from the rest of the world. Each cottage has LCD T.V., DVD/Video, CD/Radio, iPod docking stations and internet access so that our guests can check in with the outside world while they are with us. You can also bring your dog on holiday – we allow one pet per guest and everything you need to take care of it is in your cottage.
