The Old Stables enjoys a rural location on a livery yard that houses ponies and horses. This holiday cottage was stylishly converted from a stable and has retained some of the rustic features like old beams in the ceiling and exposed red bricks in the hall.
There is lots of room for 4 people, and the kitchen-diner is large, airy and equipped with every mod con you need. The hot tub in the private garden has pride of place on the sunny patio, and there are garden table and chairs here too.
If you can tear yourself away from this delightful holiday home, you can explore the beaches that are only 4 miles away, or the Norfolk Broads that can be reached in 30 minutes by car.

Things To Do in North Walsham
The closest seaside town to The Old Stables at Swafield Barns is Mundesley. The wide and sandy beach here is a favourite spot with dog owners.
There is a café for refreshment s and a crazy golf course with a pirate and dinosaur theme that is great for the whole family.
The beaches on the Norfolk coast stretch on for miles with huge areas that are unspoilt and uncrowded. Cromer is one of the more popular seaside towns, it’s bustling with gift shops, souvenir stalls and chips shops. The Victorian pier and lighthouse are worth seeing, and there are lots of places to eat in Cromer as well.
To see the colony of grey seals that calls Blakeney Point home, take a boat trip that includes a guided tour with lots of information about the area.
Doggies are allowed on many of these trips as long as they are well behaved. The nature reserve here is a delightful place to roam, and if you take a pair of binoculars you can spot rare birds and small mammals. There is also a charming village with flint-built homes, art galleries and a selection of friendly tea rooms.
For long walks in the trees, head to Bacton Woods. The pathways through the woodland make it easy to navigate and it’s a much-loved area for dog walkers. A pond in a clearing makes an ideal place to have a picnic so pack some refreshments before you go.
Felbrigg Hall and Gardens can be found just outside of Cromer. It’s an elegant country mansion with state rooms, Chinese bedrooms and a great hall to visit.
Doggies are permitted in the beautiful gardens that surround the mansion – it’s been lovingly landscaped and filled with a huge range of plants.
