The Hen House

160210-ManorFm-002Sleeps 4 (2 bedrooms)

In the same barn as The Stables and behind Bantam Cottage lies this cosy cottage. For many a year this was home to several laying hens, and the odd cockerel!

Today, following painstaking conversion and conservation work, this charming building provides accommodation of a quite different, rather more luxurious kind – for up to 4 people.

You will find:

  • Two bedrooms
    • One with a king-size bed and en-suite with ‘rain shower’, situated on the ground floor
    • The second with twin beds, located on the second floor along with a separate bathroom
  • Open plan kitchen, sitting/dining room

Saturday changeover – Arrival time after 4 pm
NO pets

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 highThe 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 Hen House has soft cream walls, wooden flooring, plenty of light – and underfloor 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.
