Brazenhall Barn (Sleeps 14)

Brazenhall Barn is traditional 19th century Norfolk barn converted into something special!

The large, open-plan kitchen/dining room (which can seat 22) leads into a stunning living room with open fire and enormous TV. Free WiFi.

The kitchen is equipped with gas hobs, double oven, two washing machines, wine cooler and microwave. We have concentrated on creating an amazing atmosphere in the Barn and there is an excellent lighting system designed to create a relaxed atmosphere.

There is a special 'TV / childrens room' for those who want to watch TV whilst the rest of the party is in the main living area.

The bedrooms are all en suite with bath and shower or shower and, again, there is lovely lighting throughout and a sense of comfort and elegance.

Each room has a TV.

Outside, the large patio dining table can also accommodate 22 in comfortable wicker-style chairs (with cushions!) and there is a very large BBQ.

About Peter Allingham

Brazenhall Barns: These are owned and operated by Peter Allingham. Peter has been in the holiday business since 1994, running the high-end specialist operator, Ancient World Tours.

Peter's family has farmed the surrounding area of Norfolk for well over a hundred years and Brazenhall Barns are luxury holiday homes converted from ancient livestock yards - yards which were mentioned in 18th centurly French travel journals as being of exceptional quality!

Peter Allingham purchased this barn in 2011

Why Peter Allingham chose Fakenham

Brazenhall Barns is redecorated top to bottom two years so the Barns always looks 'just opened'! I grew up in this part of Norfolk and for me it is one of the most beautiful parts of the UK with gentle rolling hills (Norfolk isn't as flat as they say!), delightful villages, bags of history and plenty for younger visitors to do.

What makes this barn unique

We have some unusual features at Brazenhall Barns. Not only can we accommodate 14 in the Barn and 6 in permanent beds in the Lodge but we can have up to 22 people dining inside our outside the Barn. This makes both properties ideal for hire if you are looking for a family reunion or special birthday party. The Barns are surrounded on three sides by lovely summer meadows and these are yours to enjoy during your stay.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Couldn't have chosen a better place! It's just got a 'wow' factor! 5 stars all round.

What a great place! Fantastic 40th on Saturday. Food from Sally was great. Barn and Lodged wowed all our guests - hope to be back!

Faultless and outstanding property. Brilliant for a family reunion that we'll never forget.

A Birthday weekend with the WOW Factor!

  • 5 of 5

We’ve just returned from our weekend at Brazenhall Barns. We loved it. We really couldn’t have asked for or found a more perfect venue for my husband’s Birthday celebration. Thank You. Sally came on Saturday night with her team and the meal she prepared for us was terrific, please tell her how much we appreciated her efforts and the great BD cake. On top of a great place to have a family party, Phil Barnes came to take photos also a recommendation from the website. The weather could not have been better – A terrific weekend – we had lots and lots of fun and probably too much food and drink.

Splendid place to stay in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful weekend at Brazenhall Barns. The barns themselves are lovely buildings with great communal areas for the guests in which to relax and enjoy meals together.

My en suite double room was large, bright and airy and the bed was really comfortable. The room was spotless and tidy, and at night time it was peaceful and quiet, which made for a relaxing stay.

The surrounding are beautiful with plenty of country walks available.

Peter, the host, is extremely helpful and friendly - the customer service at Brazenhall is fantastic.

Finall, a special mention has to go to Sally and her catering team. They worked tirelessly to provide us with delicious lunches and sumptuous 3-course suppers in the evenings. It made our stay that extra bit special and I could not recommend the catering at Brazenhall Barns enough!

All in all I had a fantastic weekend there - it is the perfect place for a group or for a family!

Memories are made of this

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time here with a group of family and friends aged 6-82.

A special time for us and we made some great memories.

Brazenhall Barns is all that we wanted it to be and more.

We treated ourselves & booked Sally Ball to provide dinner for 20 and this was a master stroke. Food was beautiful and no washing up!

Accommodation is all on one level and with options for twins, doubles, walk-in shower/bath etc, it helps suit everyone's needs.

Norfolk has many secrets, this might not stay one for too much longer.

Amazing accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Amazing accommodation in the perfect location. Very well maintained and equipped to a very high standard. All the rooms were clean and well presented. Accomodated 20 cyclists. We all had plenty of room and with lots of space. Wonderful outside caterers to make your stay even more special. Would highly reccomend this venue for large group getaways.

Wonderful large property

  • 5 of 5

We hired both the barn and the lodge for a long weekend with a group of friends (12 adults, 7 under 10s in total). The properties are very well furnished and equipped to cope with large groups. Bedrooms are spacious and further enough away from the living space to reduce noise. All have en suite. The living area is huge with a dining table for 20, and sofa's for all in the living room. There is also a childrens TV room.

Catering services are available and we had a serviced breakfast every morning, and two prepared self service 3 course meals in the evening, one of which was a BBQ on the beautiful terrace which has room to seat 20 outside as well.

The property is ideal for young children with an enclosed garden which meant the adults could relax safe in the knowledge that the children could not disappear off.

The properties are 20 minutes from the coast and we spent Saturday on Brancaster beach, and Sunday doing the seal viewing trip from Morston Quay, both of which were excellent.

The booking process was simple and the owner was always contactable and everything was clear before we arrived.

In a nutshell this is a wonderful property for large groups looking to explore the North Norfolk coast or just relax together in the gardens. Look forward to returning at some point soon.

Special interest holidays:

Just a couple of miles away is the ‘Extreme Adventure Company’ with treetop swings, walks, a 3G swing and it’s famous 1000 foot zip wire! There is a small course too for more junior members of your party. The stunning Pensthorpe Park is just past Fakenham and is well known as the host of BBC Springwatch in 2009 as well as being voted Norfolk’s Best Visitor Attraction in 2009. Here is superb wildlife, walks, gardens, shops and restaurants and there’s plenty to do for all ages.


Children (of all ages!) love steam engines – and the delightful Wells and Walsingham light railway offers a charming way to spend an afternoon. Operating between April and the end of October, this narrow gauge railway (the longest of its type in the world) passes through some great countryside on its half hour journey to and from the coastal town of Wells with its quay and excellent sea food.

Further Details:

North West Norfolk is one of the last unspoilt parts of the UK with plenty of charming villages, excellent restaurants and, of course, the famous Norfolk coastline is only a few miles away with delightful walks, great sandy beaches and some superb bird-watching opportunities.

We’re minutes from Fakenham where are there are two large supermarkets, a cinema (for the odd rainy day), bowling alley and sports hall and plenty of smaller shops to keep you interested.

Close by are two of Norfolk’s most popular shopping towns which are packed with lovely small shops, restaurants and pubs. These are Holt and Burnham Market – bywords themselves for lazy sunny days pottering around antique shops before settling down to an exceptional lunch.

There are plenty of excellent pubs and restaurants in the area and these are shown below. We can do no better than quote directly from their website. Our local taxi firm, Tiny's Taxis (01328 856 314) are very happy to provide an excellent service to and from the restaurant of your choice if none of you fancies driving.
