About the Owner

I am a Mother of three boys and a very busy farmer's wife, a qualified Latin teacher too, although I have no time for teaching now! I manage the letting of the properties myself and the cleaning and the washing and the lawn mowing and take great pride in the standards that I strive to. We get many repeat guests.

Fantastic barn, fantastic location, I understand why so many return, we certainly will.

First class cottage. Everything you needed. We will be back.

The best holiday cottage we have ever had!

  • 5 of 5

We liked everything about the property. The workmanship of the conversion was impressive - I'm a carpenter myself. It was our first visit to Norfolk on holiday, and we intend to return in 2017 if we can. We would have liked to use the bus service, which we noticed rang through the village, but could not find times and routes.

A great find

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Bayses Barn. it is in an ideal location in the beautiful Norfolk countryside, especially if you are looking for peace, tranquillity and stunning wildlife.

We loved the barn, one of the best we've stayed in! It is very spacious with attention to detail. Also very clean and well maintained.

We will definitely return.

From the Owner

We bought Home Farm, Briningham in 1998. Five years ago we decided that something needed to be done with the old crumbling stables and cart shed and the old lambing yard. We enlisted the services of local architect, Robert Lord and then local builders Mark and Carl Holman. The result two beautiful barns to let as holiday accommodation. Briningham is a perfect spot for exploring the North Norfolk coast, but at the same time is off the beaten track so that you can enjoy real quiet and solitude while on holiday. Many guests return time and time again and early booking is advised.

From the Owner

We love Briningham and even though it is only twenty minutes away spend our own holidays there! It is a perfect location for exploring the North Norfolk coast. Close enough to get there easily and far enough away to be off the beaten track and the regular tourist trail. We offer you the opportunity to walk around our beautiful farm.
