About & Contact

Tranquil, stylish hideaway close to stunning coast

The Garden House is a newly converted eco barn which sits in a secluded and tranquil setting close to the 14th Century church, the village green and a short stroll from the award winning village pub, the Banningham Crown.

The house has been lovingly restored and features underfloor heating, bespoke fittings and fixtures, a luxurious wet room with double shower, stunning kitchen with quartz worktop and a fully glazed wall which opens directly onto a large, secluded south/west facing terrace.  The house is in a great location with easy access to beautiful beaches, the Broads and Norwich and offers a real escape from it all.

The building is all on one level and features a large living room with kitchen area which is flooded with light from the floor to ceiling glass wall on the south/west elevation.  This provides direct access to the outside terrace via the large sliding glazed doors. 

There is a well equipped kitchen with built in cooker, hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing/drying machine, Nutribullet and Nespresso coffee machine as well as ample cupboard space.  The dining table and comfortable chairs are perfect for romantic meals at home or you could let someone else do the work and hire a local chef to come and cook a special meal for you - this information and details of the many fantastic local restaurants we recommend can be found in our digital welcome guide! 

The living room also has comfortable sofas for you to relax and snuggle down for an evening in front of the television which has Netflix and Sky packages so that you can catch up on some box sets!  It's also the perfect place to unwind with spa treatments or a yoga session - all of which can be undertaken in house, with recommendations on our bespoke digital welcome guide.

The bedroom is accessed via the living room and has a luxury king size Hypnos bed, built in wardrobe and its own separate access to the south facing terrace.  The bed has a luxury topper, crisp white sheets and we supply fluffy white towels, bath robes and complimentary toiletries.

There is a stylish and spacious en-suite wet room which features a large 2 person shower area and drench digital power shower.

Even though The Garden House is in a secluded, tranquil location in a small village it does benefit from super fast broadband so you needn't miss any work emails .... or you could turn your phone off, relax and enjoy the peace and quiet!

The outside space comprises a large south/west facing terrace with teak outdoor dining furniture and a barbeque for al fresco summer meals.  There are sun loungers for early evening cocktails or lazy summer days. 

We also supply a comprehensive welcome hamper so that you can relax the moment you arrive. Your holiday can start straight away with a cup of tea and piece of home-made cake, or something stronger if you prefer!

Our bespoke Digital Welcome Guide gives all our guests the insiders track on Norfolk - the best places to eat and visit; the best shopping and adventure experiences and most importantly the most stunning and lesser known beaches.  We include all the information you could wish for, such as:

The numerous National Trust properties close by including Blickling Hall and Felbrigg hall with their sumptuous interiors and stunning parkland. 

Walking and cycling routes which can begin at the front door and include the quiet lanes on which the house is situated as well as the stunning coastal path, Weavers Way and Peddars Way.

The fabulous boutique shopping which can be found at Burnham Market, Holt and Norwich (including the stunning Elm Hill) and the local farmers markets and delicatessens offering amazing local and specialised produce too. 

The best cultural events happening locally from permanent and visiting displays at The Castle Museum and Houghton Hall to upcoming productions at The Theatre Royal, Norwich.

The best restaurants and pubs, ideal for lazy lunches or special Michelin starred meals.

It's true, Norfolk has it all and it's waiting for you ...

Serena Woolliams

Born and brought up in Norfolk, I couldn’t wait to return with our young family and began renovating the barns at Banningham which had been derelict for decades and now form The Coach House and The Garden House. Our aim was always to provide luxurious, spacious holiday accommodation and we’ve been sharing our special part of Norfolk for 15 years. We aim to ensure that all our guests have a fabulous holiday and are proud that many visitors return to us year after year. We live nearby, so we are there to help if needed, but are far enough away that we won’t cramp your style! We look forward to welcoming you to this very special part of Norfolk - so unspoilt and beautiful that we are confident you won’t want to leave!
