"Well, as the owners of another holiday cottage in Devon we have to say..."Why do we bother?"....Your barn is 'to die for'. We absolutely love it. You have created a beautiful house and I so wish it was mine. Our two cavaliers (one from Many Tears) LOVED it!"
See what other lovely things our guests have said in our Guestbook.
Lovingly restored in 2011 with great attention to detail, our barn is on the Paston Way footpath in a designated Quiet Lane and only a mile from the sea. Hares may be seen in the meadow from the window and the cheeky Sparrows and Long tailed tits seem to escape the Sparrow Hawk, as do the fat Wood Pigeons!
10% of bookings go to Many Tears rescue in South Wales and there is no charge for dogs.
Sandstone flooring and no stairs make Milestone barn very suitable for children, dogs and those with limited mobility.
The air source heat pump for under floor heating and bio disc waste system may be of interest to those wishing for a more environmentally sensitive holiday.
The barn is completely open plan with glass in the upper truss of the wall that makes the bedrooms so you have full height all through and can see all of the roof. (scroll down for more photos)
Sitting Room: Comfy leather seating with throws available, antique American rocker, book cases, flat screen TV/DVD (Free view) and Humax for recording your favourite programme. Original pictures and prints. Roman blinds for full enjoyment of the view.
Dining Room: Open plan with the kitchen and seating area. Antique painted dresser with full set of blue and white porcelain (there is an everyday set too), plank table with Farrow and Ball Cooking apple green painted legs and retro chairs, willow bench seat and dimmable lights.
Kitchen: Open plan with high beamed ceiling and Garden Trading enamel lights. Fully fitted with island unit and well equipped with oak and granite work surfaces. It includes a retro style fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine/dryer, an electric range cooker and a microwave oven.
Bathroom: Limestone and marble mosaics, recessed lighting, bath, walk in wet room level access rainfall shower. Portable bathroom aids for use are available if required.
Double Bedroom: Victorian country style polished king size bed. Wall lights and cream blackout blind.
Twin Bedroom: Victorian cream country style twin beds which can be put together as a king. Wall lights.
Heating: Under floor from air source heat pump system complemented by wood burning stove. The under floor heating is sufficiently warm for all year. The wood burning stove is for those who love a fire. We provide one box of logs and our gardener will supply more at a very reasonable cost. Only seasoned hardwood may be used.
Outside: Enclosed stone paved and lawned garden with substantial outdoor furniture, parasol and galvanised bucket barbecue. A lovely place to spend an evening with the cheese and wine from our welcome pack. It is difficult to see when the swallows go to roost and the bats come out. It is a very safe space for dogs. Parking for 2 cars. Full disabled access.
The two nearest pubs with food are The Vernon Arms, 1.5 miles at Southrepps. (it is listed in Norfolk doggie pubs) and The Crown 1 mile at Trunch (CAMRA). The Ship Inn at Mundesley is really dog and people friendly and has a garden over looking the beach. There is a pool and small leisure centre at Woodland Holiday Park at Trimingham (01263 579208) not too far from our barn.
The beaches around our cottage are sandy and mostly dog friendly and there are miles of footpaths to explore. Wells, Blakeny and Stiffkey are a short drive away and North Norfolk is a bird watchers paradise. Aylsham is a slow food town and has auctions on Mondays. Historic Norwich is a vibrant city with great shopping and food.
