A late burst of summer inspired a long beach walk to Walcott. The beleaguered hamlet looks sad when you approach on the from behind the sea defences as so much of it has already surrendered to the power of the North sea. On such a beautiful day though it is inspiring to walk among the tattered groynes and collect pieces of smoothed off wood and other odds and ends that can be turned into objects of art and garden ornaments. The walk turns away from the seashore up over the cliff top to a fantastic traditional local beach that serves excellent beers and lunch, with a beautiful view on such a bright blue day out over the Norwich countryside it is the ideal place to spend a couple of hours in good company. The return walk along the cliff top is easy and brings you back into Walcott for ice creams on the sea wall before heading home for a well deserved dinner. Summer is back in North Norwich and is to be enjoyed before we head toward cooler crisper autumnal days.
Whilst rural, the barn is easily accessible to the market town of North Walsham (4 miles), Walcott and Sheringham are also nearby. We have great walks, coast and country, from our doorstep and are also happy to provide adult mountain bikes for our more adventurous guests; National Cycle Route 30 is on the doorstep.
The cathedral city that offers something for everyone. A great place to spend the day exploring the lanes and alleys of old Norwich, there are two cathedrals to visit, or just shop ‘til you drop, then relax in one of the city's many great eateries.
We are dedicated to the Environment at Barn & Beach, being a fledgling company we will be constantly reviewing our policy and exploring ways to improve our footprint. Some initial policies will include: Provenance, sourcing product, as near to the coast as possible be it a cut of meat, dairy product, fresh vegetables, or flowers for the table it will be local where possible. Services, plumbers, electricians, maintenance services and cleaners will all be from the villages. Waste Disposal, Walcott Beach offer good recycling facilities, we encourage all guests, trades etc. to recycle. We have compost facilities at the properties and encourage all to use them.
Chemical, we will be exploring all levels of environmentally friendly products without compromising the quality for our guests. We have never employed any chemical in our gardens and aim to continue this policy. Home Grown, we have completed the hard landscape at the Barn and are now in progress with vegetable beds and flowerbeds for our guests' enjoyment, food to eat and to encourage a wildlife environment for the birds, bees and butterflies. The Kingfisher Fish Bar garden is more established and already provides us with a small amount of crops and plenty of compost. The Future, we envisage chickens, bees and a productive vegetable garden, we will keep you posted in the newsletter. The future's bright, we ask our guests for their tips to help this policy develop and grow greener.
