the great barn
The Great Barn is a grade 2 listed building and was built in the late 1700’s. Originally a threshing barn, it was used as grain storage and for grain drying until the early 2000’s. It has now been converted into an amazing large open space with plenty of original features still present.
Perfect for all the family to get together or for large groups to enjoy. The Great Barn is ideal for a relaxing weekend in a unique space in the heart of the peaceful Norfolk countryside.
The Great Barn accommodation is over 2 floors.
The ground floor is where the bedrooms are situated, 5 in total. Four of the bedrooms can be either twin beds or super king, all with ensuite bathrooms. The 5th bedroom is a fabulous bunk room sleeping 8. The bunks are bespoke built and are adult size with storage in between them, rendering them semi private. An amazing, fun space for all the children or a group of friends.
Also downstairs, with its wonderful underfloor heated polished concrete floor, are the kitchen and dining areas. The upper floor is mezzanine style so whilst sitting downstairs you have the full view of the stunning barn roof above, creating a huge open space. The large commercial style kitchen will delight budding chefs and catering companies alike. The long refectory tables in the dining area create a great space for all the family and friends to be together in a relaxing setting.
Upstairs a sitting room with large comfy sofas and soft lighting, creates a cosy space, while the bar and seating area at the other end of the barn is perfect for those pre dinner drinks and cocktails. Outside there is a private area for dining where you can enjoy the beautiful norfolk skies.
Whilst staying with us you have access to our indoor pool, steam room and Jacuzzi along with other guests we have staying.
