Welcome to West Heath Barn
We’re located just outside the pretty North Norfolk village of Great Massingham and surrounded by tranquil countryside, offering lots of great dog walking in our own paddock or on the network of pathways around us. Guests walking to Peddars Way National Trail will pass by our resident alpacas en route to the award winning Dabbling Duck Pub & Restaurant in the local village.
Whether you wish to go walking, cycling, visit the coast and the many local Norfolk attractions or simply recharge your batteries in a beautiful, tranquil setting, West Heath Barn is the ideal base. The magnificent historic houses and country estates of Sandringham, Holkham, Houghton and Oxburgh Hall are all close by. The stunning Norfolk coast is less than 30 minutes drive away, with over 60 miles of sandy beaches, picturesque salt marshes and big skies. Snettisham and Titchwell bird reserves are a short drive away for keen birdwatchers. Burnham Market and Holt offer chic retail therapy while Swaffham and Fakenham are more authentic traditional market towns, and the fabulous cities of Norwich and Cambridge are less than an hour’s drive away.
We’re sure you will love West Heath Barn as much as we do and we look forward to offering you a very warm welcome.
