The barns are a cluster of sensitively converted farm buildings set in extensive grounds and surrounded by farmland. All graded 4 & 5-star gold award by Visit England.

The barns offer flexible accommodation with 3 pairs of communicating properties for families to stay together under one roof, alternatively the properties can be booked separately for those wishing to retain some private breakaway space.

The barns retain many of their original features including traditional beams and courtyard setting. The original lofty threshing barn houses a stunning luxury indoor heated pool which is flooded with light in the mornings; ideal for an invigorating early swim and floodlit for a relaxing swim at the end of a fun filled day. Interiors are bright and comfortable and designed for open-plan family living with a relaxed home from home vibe. The Properties have private outdoor terraces opening out on to a large fenced paddock where families can gather to play and socialise until the sun goes down.

The barns are close to the beautiful north Norfolk coast and the expansive sandy beaches of Holkham bay and Wells-next-the-Sea. The village of Burnham Market is just 10 minutes away, great for some retail therapy followed by lunch with celebrity spotting thrown in.
