West Heath Barn offers a peaceful and tranquil stay in one of our 3 traditional Norfolk barns, lovingly restored to preserve all their original charm yet combined with stylish and contemporary comfort.
Less than a mile from Great Massingham, one of Norfolk’s prettiest villages, and directly adjacent to Peddars Way National Trail, West Heath Barn is an ideal base for exploring all that Norfolk has to offer. We are close to a wide range of attractions from walking your dogs or cycling on Peddars Way to the magnificent historic houses and country estates including Sandringham, Holkham, Houghton and Oxburgh Hall. The stunning Norfolk coast is less than 30 minutes drive away with over 60 miles of sandy beaches, picturesque salt marshes and big skies. Birdwatchers are within easy reach of Snettisham and Titchwell bird reserves. Burnham Market and Holt offer chic retail therapy, Swaffham and Fakenham are more authentic traditional market towns and the fabulous cities of Cambridge and Norwich are less than an hour’s drive away.
Our guests may choose between the spacious and well equipped self catering, dog-friendlyaccommodation in The Dairy or The Cart Lodge or stylish bed & breakfast in one of our three beautifully appointed rooms.
West Heath Barn is set in over 4 acres of grounds providing ample space for free-range children and an enclosed paddock for your dogs to run free. Beyond that, we are surrounded by rolling countryside offering a network of footpaths to explore further afield, and guests walking to Peddars Way will pass our resident alpacas en route to the award winning Dabbling Duck Pub and restaurant in the local village.
