A beautifully presented attractive holiday home, set in a small development in the coastal village of Titchwell on the North Norfolk coast, 1 mile from a coastal RSPB reserve.
This traditional barn has been converted into smart and stylish living accommodation, but its character remains with evidence of the fabric of the building, in the form of exposed chalk walls, vaulted ceilings and beams reminding you of its origin.
Old Smithy is a most comfortable and spacious place to stay and will suit families, friends and couples who are looking for a short or longer stay in a rather lovely holiday hideaway in a convenient and peaceful location midway between Brancaster and Thornham.
On the ground floor there is a stunning sitting room, double height to one end and bi-fold doors to the other, with so much comfortable seating you really are spoilt for choice.
The doors open into the south facing, enclosed courtyard garden enabling you to bring the outside in if you wish. The well-equipped kitchen opens into the dining hall, just the place for a sociable get together, be it easy relaxed dining or a more formal affair.
Upstairs there are four inviting bedrooms – 2 doubles, 1 twin and 1 single with super comfy beds, and two bathrooms, one of the doubles is en-suite.
Outside, as well as the enclosed courtyard, there is an open communal grassed area at the rear of the barn, where Old Smithy has its own lawned area with bench seating.
We truly enjoyed our stay at the Old Smithy, which combines all the comforts of modern living with the wonderful heritage of an old building. Excellent 10 out of 10.

A lovely comfortable stay, perfect for 6 adults celebrating our daughter's 30th birthday. Great location for exploring the local area and a lovely well equipped house for cosy evenings in. We made good use of the wine fridge.

Titchwell is right on the North Norfolk Heritage coast and home to the famous RSPB reserve. The sight of the geese flying overhead in the Autumn is one of the most incredible sights you will see.
There is a short walk to the quiet beach over the marsh and only a five minute walk to Titchwell Manor and Briarfields Hotel, both serve delicious food.
Brancaster is a couple of minutes drive away and is known for its simply stunning beach. It stretches for miles backed by gentle sand dunes and the famous links golf course of The Royal West Norfolk Golf Club.
