Romance and rusticity are the order of the day in this luxury detached self-catering barn conversion in this popular and quiet village right on the coast in fabulous North Norfolk.
Formerly the village blacksmiths, it has been sensitively converted into a cosy couples’ retreat. Perfect for walkers, cyclists, bird and wildlife lovers, it’s a fabulous base for exploring the whole of the North Norfolk coast.
Set in peaceful Holme-next-the-Sea, with its stunning sandy beach and village pub.
The Old Smithy retains its authentic character, but has plenty of modern touches too. With its flint walls, cosy nooks, original features and peaceful setting.
Offering a sunny front terrace and lovely private wildlife garden.
The open-plan hand-built kitchen is well-equipped and comes with a sit-up bar with stools and a separate dining area.
The sitting room has two comfortable chairs and a squashy leather sofa, perfect for snuggling down in front of the fire.
With a calming décor and stunning first floor bedroom with vaulted ceiling and luxurious king-size bed and dressing area, you’ll enjoy distant sea views across to Holme marshes. The glass ceiling panel in the centre of the room also provides a wonderful focal point.
This gorgeous barn is just perfect as a romantic getaway or even a fabulous honeymoon retreat.
If you're looking for something a little different, within walking distance of a beautiful beach and a welcoming pub you won't be disappointed by The Old Smithy.

Walking enthusiasts are offered an abundance of exploration at The Old Smithy, with walking trails starting from the doorstep.
Sit outdoors on a morning, with a pot of tea and map and plan your walk along the Peddar’s Way and Coastal path. Head to Holme Dunes where you’ll see numerous migrating birds, plus natterjack, toads, butterflies and dragonflies.
Saunter down to the village pub on an evening where you can enjoy good food and ales at The White Horse.
There are also plenty of restaurants, pubs, a deli, farm shop and trendy boutiques in the neighbouring villages of Thornham and Old Hunstanton which boast beautiful sandy beaches too.
