Looking for that quaint country life? Here's a charming old barn that's been converted to a two-bedroom house, complete with "secret" doors to the bedrooms and bathroom.

This barn, built in the 1600s, is in the small coastal village of Thursford. The North Norfolk town "has a church and a renowned museum dedicated to vintage fairground equipment" according to the listing, but you'll have to go a mile outside town for a good pub.

Lynch Architects renovated the space to convert it into a little two-bedroom home, adding modern touches (like the slat windows in the living area) while preserving its history (the original exposed rafters and flint walls).

The living area also features a shiplap wall with three flush "secret" doors, leading to the bathroom, upstairs bedroom, and ground-level bedroom.

It's currently being operated as a vacation home, generating £20,000 annual income. It's listed for £280,000 (approximately $341,000).
