Running Hare Barn and The Old Piggery, East Ruston, Norfolk, sleeps 6-16 in 8 bedrooms.

Sleeps 6 to 16 in 2 cottages
Running Hare Barn sleeps 10
The Old Piggery sleeps 6

The cottages can be booked separately or together. They both have separate outside areas but are easily joined together using the door in the feature, floor to ceiling window of the barn that replaced the old barn doors.

Running Hare Barn is an old threshing barn, recently converted to sleep 10 people on 3 levels. The style of the barn has been retained so you really do know you are in an old barn with brick feature walls and amazing views of the beams.

The downstairs open plan kitchen/living area has plenty of room for people to cook, sit and chat together. The upstairs lounge has plenty of comfy seating and a huge TV. There are 2 ground floor, en suite kingsize bedrooms, another superking zip and link bed on the second floor and two mezzanine rooms in the roof - one king size, the other twin small double beds - with amazing views and a shared bathroom.

The conversion has reached the semi finals of a regional building excellence award scheme for the style and quality of the conversion and has many interesting 'green' features including locally supplied thatch for the roof, reclaimed and locally sourced building materials, heating from a ground source heat pump, on-site wind and solar supplied electricity, harvested rainwater, hempcrete internal wall covering and an air re-circulation system.

The Old Piggery is a single storey barn conversion with 3 bedrooms, one en suite, plus a family bathroom and generous open plan living/kitchen space with wood burner.

The properties are ideal for older groups/families with the Old Piggery being the most suitable for children.

Both properties have solid pamment/brick floors throughout and a secure enclosed outside space at each making them ideal for dogs who are genuinely welcome at both. We provide dog bowls, throws for sofa sharing, dog beds and toys, home made dog biscuits and there is even a warm dog shower under cover outside in Running Hare Barn yard. There are some great walks from the door and most of the local beaches, cafes and pubs are dog friendly. It's what we do so well here in Norfolk!
