“Twelve of us stayed in High Barsham and had sunshine from the morning we arrived. Sipping wine in the garden on the first evening felt like we were in the South of France! The barn was really fantastic and after a day on hired bikes and at the beach to come home to the spa was perfect. So much space and light and your interior was perfect for the occasion. We highly recommend Kelby the chef who cooked up a fantastic BBQ and we were pampered by Jacqui and Emma… the back massage comes highly recommended!”
“I just wanted to drop you a line to say how much we all enjoyed our stay at High Barsham from Thursday to Sunday. What a fantastic place, beautifully done! Thank you. Everything we needed was there and we all had a wonderful time together as a big family celebrating my husband’s birthday. Even the weather was good!” – Debra Brown & family June 2019

It was the perfect location for hen do activities – yoga class in the garden, BBQs and al fresco dining and lots of space for dancing, sunbathing & garden games. The rooms are beautiful, and architecturally the barn is stunning. It’s a great place for a get together with a large group as lots of social communal areas but lovely rooms for people to have their ‘own space’. It’s also a great location with Wells beach down the road.”
