About our home

Nelson Barn, a stunningly beautiful former riding stables, received coveted conversion awards for excellence in 2008. The barn's exposed beams, coupled with contemporary glass and stainless steel staircases, offer the perfect blend of comfort and architectural style merging history and modernity

From the oak and jet marble kitchen to the luxury sanitary ware our home exudes elegance and warmth and pays fitting tribute to this Grade 2 Conservation listed building. With its large eye brow window and two storey high ceilings our home offers generous space with warm atmosphere. From the large impressive yet homely lounge to the more intimate mezanine, family members have the opportunity to enjoy differering activities under the one roof.

Salhouse village itself is sited in the British National Parkland and boasts its own Norfolk Broad (unique waterways, formerly peat excavations) where yachting, canoeing, fishing and rambling sit happily alongside world famous wildlife sanctuaries.

Only 15 minutes from the centre of the historical city of Norwich with its station, international airport and transport links, London is just 1 hour 40 minutes direct by train. Norwich boasts an amazing history with Royal connections and, as such, its historic buildings and largest number of original timber framed houses in the UK results in Norwich reputation as a renowned centre of culture, fine dining and shopping.

The famous and arguably finest unspoilt north Norfolk coast (popularly known as Chelsea on Sea) sits happily alongside the quaintest towns and fishing villages nestled within its boudaries where the quirky and the sophisticated tastes in leisure, qaulity of life and fine dining walk side by side within an hours reach of Nelson Barn.

Sandringham House, a residency of the Queen, is also sited in Norfolk and, together with several houses of great historical interest, are preserved for future generations and are open for the public to enjoy.
