Harold’s Barn (named after Edward’s grandfather) is located at the former farm in Briningham, just off the B1110 (Dereham to Holt road) and looks across the valley over fields and more fields. The barn sleeps six in three bedrooms, all ensuite.

The Master Bedroom is upstairs. It is a lovely large room with high ceilings. It has a Super King bed and a large ensuite shower room.

The Second Bedroom is also upstairs and again is a large room with high ceilings. It has a Super King bed which can be split into two single beds. There is an ensuite shower room.

The Third Bedroom is downstairs, next to the living area, up four steps. It has a walk in cupboard and a large bathroom with bath and walk in shower. It has a Super King bed which can be split into two single beds.

All the bedrooms and bathrooms are finished and furnished to a very high standard. All the bedrooms are fully carpeted. Upstairs bathrooms are also carpeted. All velux windows have powered black out blinds. The downstairs bathroom has a tiled floor. Each bedroom has plenty of cupboard storage for clothes and bits and pieces and bedside tables. All the bathrooms have electric towel rails, electric mirrors and shaver and toothbrush sockets. We provide all bed linen, bath towels, hand towels and bath mats.

Entry to Harold’s Barn is in the new extension into a hall, off which is a downstairs toilet. There is plenty of room for coats, hats and boots in the hall. Also in the extension is a large glass fronted sunroom with doors opening out to the garden. This is filled with furniture from The Fairtrade Furniture Company and is an ideal place for that afternoon cup of tea – as the afternoon sun streams in here.

The hall leads into the kitchen which is partly open to the main living area. The kitchen is very modern in design. As with The Pig House – the kitchen has been designed by a local kitchen company (Arcadia) and the kitchen has been manufactured by Siematic in Germany. There is a large breakfast bar (three stools from Quadrtropi) with a Bora integrated hob (as in The Pig House). There is plenty of cupboard and drawer space. The kitchen has a bottle fridge, huge Bosch fridge freezer, Bosch integrated double oven and microwave and integrated dishwasher and a washing machine/tumble dryer.

All of the kitchens in our properties are very well equipped with good quality cooking equipment. I used to be a professional cook – so think that self-catering holiday homes should have good cooking equipment and all that is necessary to make a great meal with!

The open plan living area is dominated by the enormously high ceiling with four striking pendant lights… suspended from quite a height! The glass sided oak stair case heads upwards to a glass sided bridge which links the two upstairs bedrooms. The dining table sits below this bridge and comes from Neptune. It is 245cm long and will generously seat 6 people and happily sit quite a few more! Adjacent to the dining area is the living area, slightly separated by two oak posts which help to support the upper floor. The living area has two large three seater sofas and a single chair and foot stool. There is a 50” television and a woodburner to help create that cosy feeling in the winter. (Wood is provided during the winter).

Outside Harold’s Barn there is a fenced garden and a large patio area with Bramblecrest outdoor dining furniture. There is ample off road parking, an EV charging point and car port.

Harold’s Barn is a perfect base for a family of up to six to come and stay. Harold’s Barn is located next to Myrtle’s Barn which also sleeps six. Taken together the two barns offers two family groups an excellent base from which to holiday together whilst having the privacy of their own property.

Out of season guests may choose to have one bedroom locked and receive a discounted price. Please contact Victoria for details. The barn is equally perfect for three couples (all super king beds, all ensuite) to get away for a week or weekend break. We are surrounded by gastropubs and other great places to eat, all within easy driving distance.

Briningham is ideally located for exploring Norfolk – especially the North Norfolk coastline – Blakeney, Cromer, Sheringham, Wells-Next-to-Sea, Holkham and equally well positioned for inland attractions such as Roar!!! (Dinosaur Adventure Park), Bewilderwood, Pensthorpe Natural Park as well as Norwich for city centre shopping and of course Holt (just up the road) for a more boutique shopping experience.

Visitors Comments

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.
