The Experience

Johanna & Christopher Tennant have converted an 18th Century barn in the garden of their home, a former game keepers dwelling – set within the 4,000 acres of parkland surrounding Holkham Hall, into a wonderfully unique & charming holiday retreat.

A Room in the Park is available to rent for short mid week breaks, weekends or on a weekly basis throughout the year. The barn is situated in the garden of Johanna and Christopher’s home – East Lodge – but despite its close proximity, you can be assured of privacy.

The barn has been converted to provide a spacious, double-volume, open plan studio room with en suite shower and direct access to a private area of the walled garden, nestled amongst Holme Oaks and Pine trees.

Every effort has been made to retain all the character of the original building which dates from 1873. The beams and trusses have been exposed and a solid wood floor and wood burning stove have been installed along with modern day comforts such as flat screen Freeview TV and DVD player.

Large, double height studio room with exposed beams and direct access to a private section of the, walled rear garden.

En-suite shower room with large shower enclosure and electric power shower washbasin and WC.

Fridge with ice compartment, kettle, toaster, cutlery and crockery, cafetiere, teapot, glasses.

Towels, bathrobes, guest toiletries. Coffee, tea, biscuits, cereal, milk, bread, butter, local jam and local apple juice provided on arrival.

Wonderful time

We had a wonderful time, perfect place for a cosy birthday retreat...and even had a quick dip in the sea!
Reviews by Patrick & Kristina

Amazing hidden gem

An amazing hidden gem of a place, cosy, comfortable and quaint. The perfect place to escape to for a wonderful break. Enjoyed every minute, we'll definitely be back.

A Room In The Park is accessed down a tree lined track just off the A149 coast road, within easy walking distance of Wells-next-the-Sea and its bustling Quay and High Street.

Approximately 1 1/2 miles from Wells Beach, 1 mile from Holkham Beach and Holkham National Nature Reserve and 10 minute walk through the Park to Holkham Hall.

Its location provides easy access to the renowned Norfolk Coastal path and the Coast Hopper bus stops at Wells and Holkham Village are a short walk from the barn. This regular bus service takes you along the coast between Hunstanton and Cromer stopping in picturesque, coastal villages such as Stiffkey, Blakeney, Morston and Cley to the east and Burnham Overy Staithe, Brancaster, Thornham and Holme-next-the-Sea to the west.
