This beautiful 400 year old former Malthouse, looking out over wooded and tranquil countryside, offers modern first class facilities while preserving its character as a Grade II listed building.
Underfloor heating, top grade insulation and a wood burning stove ensure comfort all the year round. Two bedrooms, two bath/shower rooms (one en-suite) and a large living area on a single level provide a wonderfully well-equipped, spacious, and peaceful place to stay.
The property lies down a very quiet lane just over a mile from Reepham, which has a beautiful Georgian market place. Just over 100 yards from The Malthouse is the Marriott’s Way, a former railway transformed into a 26 mile ‘green corridor’ to Norwich. This area is exceptionally rich in historic towns, buildings and National Trust sites with Holt, Blickling, Felbrigg and Norwich of exceptional interest. Cromer and the beautiful North Norfolk coast can be reached in 40 minutes.

Attractions and amenities
Close at hand is Heydon, a picture-postcard village a few miles on the other side of Reepham, and Blickling and Felbrigg Halls, two outstanding National Trust properties to the North; these can easily be combined with a trip to the coast at Cromer (18 miles).
Holt (13 miles) is beautiful, and full of interesting shops, galleries and restaurants; it can be easily combined with a trip to the well known villages along the coast, including Sheringham, Cley, Wells and Burnham Market.
Norwich is only 13 miles away, and Wroxham and the Broads not much further. Heritage railways within easy reach include The Poppy Line, Mid Norfolk Railway and Bure Valley narrow gauge railway.
Sports enthusiasts are well catered for with golf at Wensum Valley and Weston Park, horse eventing at Blackwater Farm, and traffic-free walking and cycling along the 26 mile Marriott's Way, which passes 100 metres away from the house.
