The Cow Byre

The Cow Byre holiday cottage, NorfolkSleeps 4 (2 bedrooms)

In the same ‘horseshoe’ group of brick and flint cottages as The Tractor House and The Pigsty is The Cow Byre. Here, many years ago, our cows lived and were gently milked by hand.

Today, following painstaking conversion and conservation work, this charming building provides accommodation of a quite different, rather more luxurious kind – for up to four people.

You will find:

  • Two bedrooms – the first with king-size bed, the second with twin beds
  • A separate bathroom with double-ended bath and large shower
  • Open plan sitting room/dining room/kitchen
  • Friday changeover
  • Arrival time after 4 pm.

Architect designed – converted by local craftsmen

Designed by a local architect, the building is both comfortable and relaxing, with a wealth of period features. The careful conversion work, by two experienced local craftsmen – a builder and a carpenter, both of whom were brought up in the village and still live there – has been skilfully carried out.

The standard of finish throughout is extremely high – reflected in features such as glazed wall tiles, kitchen appliances (Cooker, Hob, Dishwasher and Microwave) by Bosch, heated stainless steel towel rails and a Sony television with Freeview and a DVD player. The furniture by Kerri’s Pine, of nearby Reepham, is handmade.

Just like its neighbouring cottages, The Cow Byre has soft cream walls, wooden flooring, plenty of light – and central heating throughout.

Its protected garden offers visitors every opportunity to soak up the sun and enjoy meals outside. Inside, books, children’s toys and DVDs have been provided.

There is a shared laundry room close by with washing machine, tumble dryer and iron and ironing board.

In the past…. ‘The Cow Byre is where our cows lived and were hand milked. However, when the next generation changed to keeping pigs it was converted to house the sows and piglets.’
