The Dairy was amazing. So well equipped and peaceful. Family and dog friendly with an exceptional dog paddock for her to run and play in. We felt very much at home here. Freshly baked cake, milk tea and coffee all provided. What a delight. The...More

About the neighbourhood
Less than a mile from Great Massingham, one of Norfolk’s prettiest villages, and adjacent to Peddars Way National Trail, West Heath Barn is an ideal base for exploring all that Norfolk has to offer. We’re close to a wide range of attractions from walking or cycling on Peddars Way to the magnificent historic houses and country estates including Sandringham, Houghton Hall and Oxburgh Hall and more. The stunning Norfolk coast is less than 30 minutes drive away, offering 60+ miles of sandy beaches, marshlands and big skies. Birdwatchers are within easy reach of Snettisham and Titchwell bird reserves. Burnham Market and Holt offer chic retail therapy and the fabulous cities of Norwich and Cambridge are less than an hour away.
Getting around
We'd advise to get the best out of this area, you do need a car unless the primary purpose of your holiday is to walk the network of paths that surround us.

How to get there
Airport: Stansted: 100.0 km
Railway: King's Lynn: 15.0 km
Ferry: Felixtowe: 120.0 km
Approx 2.5hrs drive from London. West Heath Barn is less than a mile outside Great Massingham. Most of our guests do travel here by car (unless they are walking Peddars Way National Trail) and there is plenty of parking immediately beside the cottages. Should you wish to travel by train, the nearest mainline station is Kings Lynn (about a 15 minute taxi ride). There is a bus service from Great Massingham to the key towns that surround us (Swaffham, Kings Lynn and Fakenham) but do bear in mind we live in a beautiful rural area so public transport reflects that.
Activities nearby
There Is A Golf Course Within 30 Mins Drive, Horse Riding Nearby, There Are Tennis Courts Nearby, Nearest Beach: 25.0 km.
