Great Barn Farm is a collection of brick, flint and pantile buildings that until 2005 were used as our working farmyard. We have since spent several years renovating the barns which now offer a series of unique self contained holiday homes which can be let on their own or together. We currently have four barns available. The Tack Rooms, (1 bed, sleeps 2), The Stables (2 bed, sleeps 4 +child/cot), The Piggery ( 2 bed, sleeps 4) and The Cattle Sheds ( 5 bed, sleeps 10 +3 cots/children) The barns have been renovated with the help of award winning architect Carl Turner, from whom we have taken much inspiration. The outside of the barn has been kept looking as unconverted as possible while inside the barns are comfortable, spacious and unique. The history of the barns has been maintained while at the same time introducing modern ideas and bringing the barns into their contemporary setting. There is lots of outdoor space and the barns have access to our 1500 farm for walks, cycling and wildlife watching. The wildlife is plentiful and can often be seen from the comfort of your accommodation. All barns have underfloor heating and 3 have wood burning stoves. There are a number of 18 hole golf courses and plenty of attractions for day trips within easy reach. Each barn is available for renting by the week, mid week or long weekend depending on the time of year
We are farmers and have lived in Norfolk for most of our live.
Our aim has been to take what has always been a beautiful range of farm buildings and convert them sympathetically. From the outside we want them to appear as unconverted as possible and on the inside provide very comfortable, fun, design led and unusual spaces. We like to rent houses when we go on holiday and have tried to incorporate elements of properties that have inspired us
Our immediate area is a very beautiful and quiet part of Norfolk with gently rolling farmland, ancients woodlands and wildlife filled fields and hedgerows.
We feel very privileged to live in this part of Norfolk. We look forward to giving others the opportunity of experiencing how special it is.

We have just returned from a wonderful week at The Piggery. There is plenty of space for a family of 4 with the added advantage of being able to set up the second room as a twin which our children much prefer!
There were many touches of luxury - from the plush towelling robes (perfect for getting to the pool) to the modern furniture and free wifi. The pool is hotel quality with a fantastic steam room and spa pool and our daily visit made the holiday truly special.
We had some great days out on the coast and nearby - Wells beach and the boat trip to see the seals at Blakeney were highlights (both about 40 mins away in the car).
We will be back!
We just got back from a wonderfully relaxing weekend at The
Great Barn Farm. Superb conversion, the piggery is spacious, warm, light, beautifully designed, with lovely crisp bedding, and the softest fluffiest towels ever!
Lovely walks around the farm, Brancaster beach, and then ending the day at the Sheep dip, which is beautiful as well, for a swim and a steam bath, so perfect.
We really wanted to visit Norfolk but struggled to find stylish and modern self catering options so I was very happy when I came across the Great Barn Farm, a great find.
