About the property

Award winning barn conversion, 9 bedrooms (sleeps 18) 7 bathrooms (3 en-suite)

Chaucer Barn is an award winning conversion which is part of an 80 acre farm, bought by the poet Geoffery Chaucer for his son in the 14th century. Set in four acres of National Garden Scheme approved gardens, which are surrounded by a further 16 acres of parkland.

Just 3 miles from the beach, Chaucer Barn is tucked into a valley in the gentle hills of north norfolk classified as an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Guests are welcome to roam the farm with its 12th century ruins of Gresham Castle of Paston Letters fame.

The super stylish barn offers 6 reception rooms, from the cathedral like space of the main hall to the contemporary chic and massive oak ceiling of the pink sitting room there is a breathtaking individuality to each of the rooms.

The overall feel is one of hip informality. Open plan space in which one can relax and feel at home whatever the season from the way the garden seems to merge with the inside in summer to the winter's warm cosy feel of being cosseted by English oak, heated Yorkstone floors and 4 open fires.

The 9 bedrooms (4 offer the optionof doubles or into twins) are all very spacious, filled with furniture and textiles brought back by the owner from his extensive travels of the globe, every room is an adventure. The bathrooms (3 en-suite), with their old world charm, are like travelling back in time with their cast-iron, roll-top baths, polished brass and antique fittings.

The garden and grounds at Chaucer Barn are a particular passion approved by the National Garden Scheme. It boasts a topiary pyramid, oak avenue, twenty acre wood, living willow arch, wild flower garden and other superb features.
