Dovecote details

Privately situated within the grounds of Felmingham Hall, a fine Grade II listed Elizabethan manor house, are Felmingham Hall Barns: two award-winning holiday properties within a stunning 18th century barn conversion. Quietly located at the end of a long drive off a country lane, the barns stand within their own south-facing walled garden, in a tranquil setting, surrounded by farmland. The barns are approached via a grape and laburnum covered pergola.

Dovecote, the smaller unit in this award-winning conversion of an 18th century barn, features a deceptively spacious reception room with inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove, dining area with double doors. The private south-facing walled garden looks out onto the dovecote, from which it takes its name, and in spring/summer over a wild flower meadow to the west. For children there is a wigwam and dressing-up box. There are inter-connecting doors between Dovecote and Long Barn which sleeps ten guests.

Once the home of William Talman, architect of Chatsworth and Master of the Works to the court of James I, Felmingham Hall was built in 1569 and is one of the earliest examples of Elizabethan architecture in North Norfolk. It stands in unspoilt countryside not far from the National Trust's Blickling and Felbrigg estates, and is an ideal location from which to explore the renowned coastline of Norfolk, only 20 minutes by car.
