For a break from the city there’s no better bolthole than Barsham Barns. Complete with swallows, barn owls and panoramic views of the unspoilt countryside around North Barsham, they offer a luxury self-catering experience that will win the hearts of the whole family. A ten-seater jacuzzi and steam room mean staying on site is a holiday in itself, but for the adventurous the beautiful North Norfolk coast is nearby, and Blakeney, Wells-next-the- Sea, Burnham Market and Holkham are just a few miles away. The oldest of the barns, Long Meadow, dates back to 1715, and all six have been authentically restored by an award-winning architect. High Barsham was once a threshing barn and now sleeps 12, with an airy and bright dining space. The cosier Little Barsham was originally used to rear lambs. Collectively, the venue can comfortably host 52, making it the perfect pastoral setting for weddings or corporate events, and outside catering can be arranged.
Take a trip out from Morston and see the seals basking on the sands of Blakeney Point and diving around your boat. Magical…
Wiveton Farm Cafe, grows its own produce and is a great place to eat. Wiveton Hall is the location of BBC 2’s “Normal for Norfolk” and home to eccentric owner of legendary eyebrows Desmond MacCarthy. He’s a great raconteur and often strolls about chatting to diners.
Smoked fish from The Cley Smokehouse, organic meat and vegetables from Back to The Garden in Letheringsett, asparagus and strawberries in season from Wiveton.
