Little Barwick is located along Bircham Road with the advantage of a large shingled private drive (not gated) with ample parking space at the front.

The substantial house is situated in good-sized gardens surrounding the house which are mainly lawned and have been well-maintained with an abundance of shrubs and plants. There is a gate from the front drive leading to the gardens which are enclosed by a wire fence, making it small child-proof, but not necessarily dog proof!)
There is a south facing charming garden with several different areas to explore and enjoy, including brick steps to one area.

At the back of the house is a large paved terrace with garden furniture and a charcoal barbecue. The lovely south garden overlooks open countryside.

The Duck Inn and a children's playground are both just under a mile away, with the unspoilt North Norfolk coast only 10mins drive away.



An attractive Norfolk farming village which is defined by the large pretty duck pond in the heart of the village. Many of the properties in Stanhoe are constructed from traditional brick and flint with curvy pantiles on the roof, making for many pretty chocolate box homes.

There is a great award-winning gastropub in Stanhoe called The Duck Inn known for its use of local produce and delicious East Anglian Ales. A warm inviting feel greets you in this village eatery and a great menu, making it a good destination either for a nice evening meal or a relaxing drink - make sure you book ahead!


The village has been a farming village since the Romans, it was the Saxons that gave the village its name Stanhoe (Stony Hill).

In the 19th Century the parish priest was Philip Ward the husband of Lord Nelsons daughter Horatia.


Stanhoe is close to the popular Georgian village destination of Burnham Market, known for the great selection of independent shops that surround the picturesque village green. There's a butcher, baker, hardware store, popular fishmonger and also lovely cafes and many eateries,as well as boutiques and galleries to peruse. Just a short drive away is the vast Norfolk coastline with the sailing villages of Brancaster Staithe and Burnham Overy Staithe, open sandy beaches at Brancaster and Holme, with splendid coastal walks, ideal for all the family and your four-legged friend too!

Guest reviews

What a beautiful house for a large group. It accommodated our 2 families , dogs and toddlers easily , was well equipped, very clean and comfortable, and had a beautiful garden . The delightful owner lives next door and was very welcoming. It is only a few mins drive to Burnham Market, and the coast is about 15 mins away. We all loved our stay - thank you .

The White's, 22nd of May 2024

As this is the 4th time we have stayed it still delights us with the very high standards it keeps. Never a thing out of place and nearly always subtle changes for improvement. We are booking again for next year. The sun helped! So we were able to enjoy the garden more. Amanda keeps her standards very high. She is so very welcoming that you feel at home rather than staying in holiday accommodation.

The Pledger's, 22nd of May 2024

Beautiful house and location. We have stayed there before.

The Gardiner's, 11th of April 2024

The Wigginton's, 27th of December 2023

Our group of ladies have stayed at Little Barwick House for our annual trip to Norfolk for many years. It is a very well equiped, spacious house set in a wonderful garden. We shall be back again. The house always makes you feel relaxed.

The Sale's, 19th of October 2023

This is a brilliant house for several generations of family. It is spacious and comfortable but also feels homely and not too precious. We have stayed her two years' running now and it is a firm favourite with the grandchildren. Very spacious, well equipped kitchen. Dualit toaster and AGA. Lots of space in the house when its raining. Brancaster beach 15 mins away and Wells less than half an hour.

The Lee's, 30th of August 2023

Wonderful place to stay with oodles of charm and character. Very comfortable and warm. Everything one would need is there. I am booking again for next year
Plenty of space to be sociable with many people all in the same space , equally plenty of areas for quiet time . The gardens are a delight to wander around.

Electric Vehicle charging

Cars may only be charged if there is an EV charging point fitted at the property.
