Self Catering Accommodation in North Norfolk, Sleeps 6
Bayses Barn, Briningham, Norfolk
Bayses Lane, NR24 2BA – 52.8697, 1.01982
Bayses Barn is our second development and opened for booking in April 2010. It is set completely on its own with just the wildlife and the sheep grazing in the meadow for company.
Bayses was an old lambing yard and shed set in the most beautiful position imaginable. As our architect, Robert Lord, often told me, the development of this barn is all about the view.
Bayses Barn is available at a discounted price for 2 or 4 guests. One bedroom will be locked. Please contact Victoria to make a booking or use the online booking system and make a note that you would like two bedrooms only and Victoria will adjust the price accordingly.
Still within the village of Briningham, Bayses has been given its own brand new postcode so at this stage you may not find it on Multimap or Google Earth. The barn is just off the Dereham Road, down Bayses Lane which is a green lane. The barn looks out over the valley and across our farmland over an environmental meadow and lake towards the village of Sharrington.
The barn has three bedrooms all of which are ensuite. Bedroom one has twin beds. The bathroom for this bedroom has a bath and a shower within the bath. Bedroom two has a king size bed. The ensuite has a large shower. Bedroom three is the Master Bedroom. It has a super king size bed. The room is dominated by two huge glass screens which look out over the valley. There is a walk in cupboard and enormous bathroom with a bath, walk in shower and twin sinks.
The kitchen is large and very well equipped. I am a cook, so I expect a kitchen to have all that is necessary to make a meal with! One end of the kitchen is the dining area which looks out over the spectacular view to the valley. The kitchen/dining area is partly open plan to the huge sitting room. This has a large fireplace dominating the room with a large woodburner (wood is provided).
The sitting room is cosy with plenty of comfy sofas to curl up in and a large screen Smart TV, a DVD player, CD player, Radio, Docking Station and WiFi. Also included is an incoming-calls-only land line. Like the kitchen the sitting room looks out over the spectacular view.
In January 2013 a stunning porch has been added giving extra room for coats and boots and muddy dogs!
The barn still looks much as it always did from the courtyard area, it remains open fronted but has been fully glazed with glass screens so that you can make the most of the view – and enjoy watching the barn owl hunting on the meadow from the comfort of the sofa!
The sitting room also opens out the back through French doors to the East to a secluded terrace area which is beautiful on a sunny morning and is a great place to eat breakfast.
The barn has underfloor heating throughout, except the bedrooms which are heated by radiators. Everything has been decorated to the same high standard as with our first project Canfers Barn. Bed linen, towels, bathmats, tea towels, heating, wifi and incoming telephone and wood for the fire is all included in the price.
Bayses Barn is a perfect base for a family of up to six to come and stay during the summer. Out of season guests may choose to have one bedroom locked and receive a discounted price. Please contact Victoria for details.
This makes the barn equally perfect for four adults wanting to get away for a great week in Norfolk. We are surrounded by gastropubs and other great places to eat, all within easy driving distance. Also a beautiful, secluded site for a couple wanting to get away from it all.
A well behaved dog is more than welcome at Bayses Barn for a small additional charge. Extra dogs at the discretion of the owner. Bayses Barn is not available for short breaks. Minimum stay – 7 nights.
This was our first visit to Bayses Barn and hopefully it won’t be our last. We can now see why you are booked for the whole year.
It made it so special to bring our dog along who enjoyed his holiday as much as us!
Thank you Victoria for the “scrummy” cake and all the little touches which make it so special.
Such a wonderful week. Thanks so much. It was paradise sitting on the swinging chair and listening to the birdsong. Will definitely be back.
A perfect fortnight. Bayses is beautiful – weather wonderful and food fabulous. All you need to relax and get away from it all. Only 49 weeks ‘til we are back!! Can’t wait.
Another amazing week at Bayses. This place is so healing.
Our first visit to Norfolk and we feel lucky to have chosen Bayses.
Here we are again – can’t keep away for too long!
Another fantastic week at our favourite place.
Been to Norfolk many times before but this is the best accommodation we have stayed in.
