The Great East Barn (Sleeps 14)

Visit England Gold AwardVisit England 5 Star ratedThe Great East Barn in North Barsham is the largest of 6 historic farm buildings to have been restored by an architect and his wife and is now a luxurious Norfolk holiday cottage for 14 people.

The Great East Barn used to be the massive 19th century granary and sits in a tranquil river valley facing south and east towards an unbridged ford and the gentle rise to Barsham Hill. This Norfolk holiday cottage has lots of space and was designed for open plan living. It’s perfect for a large group of friends or family.

Imagine yourself in the luxurious comfort of the first floor sitting room with the traditional, rustic clunch walls behind you, surrounded by crisp modern furnishings and gazing across calm green fields and grazing sheep. This huge open plan space extends past a central island kitchen to a large airy glazed dining room with more fabulous views down the valley.

The Great East Barn is a Norfolk holiday cottage with a difference, where country meets city by combining designer details with traditional building techniques.
