The area is renowned for its bird watching opportunities with Cley and Blakeney easily accessible. National Cycle routes 1 & 2 will take you through some super countryside and villages. With the coast so close and countryside on the doorstep this is a good location if you enjoy walking. The village pub, The Barsham Arms, is within easy walking distance of the cottage. Restaurants, shopping facilities and farmers markets can be found at Fakenham.

One of the nicest properties we have stayed in. Warm, welcoming and beautifully presented with friendly owner

Mrs Laina West,

Fantastic cottage in a very good location.

Mrs Jennifer Phillips,

Though compact, Old Beans Cottage is finished to a high standard and very well equipped. This was my second stay and I would highly recommend it. It is convenient for the majority of the North Norfolk coast reserves and fantastic wildlife that can be seen from the patio.

Dr Clive Jones,

Owl highlight: She flew right up to the window and we looked each other in the eyes. I think her and I have a special bond now!

Another wonderful stay, must be our 4th or 5th! Barn owls very obliging in posing this time. Counted 30 species of wildlife in the cottage environs alone! Martin as usual the perfect host - here's to next year!
