Swanton Abbott is a quiet village in an ideal position from which to discover the many delights of Norfolk. The capital of the Norfolk Broads is only five miles away at Wroxham and you may like to hire a boat to view the miles of waterways. The North Norfolk Heritage Coast and the sandy beaches of Cromer, Mundesley and Holkham are also only a short drive away, as is the fine city of Norwich. There is a pub and shop in the village and further amenities available in the market towns of Aylsham and North Walsham, four miles away.

Lilac Barn is a spacious single storey, charming and attractively presented barn conversion.

Lilac Lodge is a newly converted luxury single storey well equipped easy access barn conversion.

Both cottages have superb views over the North Norfolk countryside and the surrounding country lanes are ideal for walking and cycling. The barn and Lodge are full of character, being beamed throughout and adjoins the owner's 18th century listed farmhouse. Pub: 0.25 miles.
