Overview

Pool Barn Quirky Laptop Friendly Workspace All Bedrooms En-Suite Parking Space

Nestled amidst the picturesque village of Gayton Thorpe in the Norfolk countryside stands the magnificent Sycamore Barn, a historical gem steeped in centuries of charm and character. Listed as grade 2, barn traces its origins back to the late 1700s, originally erected as a humble threshing barn. Witness to the ebb and flow of time, it served diligently as a grain storage and drying facility until the new millennium, when its extensive renovations began.

Today, Sycamore Barn stands as a testament to both its rich heritage and contemporary allure, offering an enchanting haven for those seeking respite from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Whether you are planning a family reunion or hosting a gathering of friends, this captivating abode provides the perfect backdrop for cherished moments and unforgettable experiences.

Upon stepping into Sycamore Barn, guests are enveloped in a sense of tranquillity and grandeur. Spread across two floors, the barn comfortably sleeps up to sixteen guests. The ground floor houses five elegantly appointed bedrooms, each exuding its own unique charm. With the flexibility to configure twin beds or sumptuous super king-sized beds, accompanied by ensuite bathrooms, comfort and convenience are paramount. The pièce de résistance, however, lies in the fifth bedroom—a whimsical bunk room designed to ignite the imagination of both young and old alike. Here, custom-built adult-sized bunks, interspersed with clever storage solutions, promise endless hours of laughter.

As evening falls, a spacious sitting room upstairs offers a haven of relaxation, adorned with plush sofas. Meanwhile, at the opposite end of the barn, a well-appointed bar and seating area await.

Outside, a private dining area provides the perfect vantage point to savour the idyllic vistas of the Norfolk skies. And for those seeking further indulgence, the indoor pool, steam room, and Jacuzzi beckon, offering moments of pure relaxation amidst the tranquil surroundings.

Whether you choose to embark on adventures in the surrounding countryside or luxuriate in the comforts of Sycamore Barn, the possibilities are endless. From historic landmarks to sandy beaches, verdant golf courses to quaint villages brimming with character, Norfolk unfolds its treasures at your feet.

What you should know…

  • The fifth bedroom boasts custom-built adult-sized bunks, separated by storage spaces to provide a semi-private arrangement, to sleep eight.
  • The swimming pool and spa complex, has a system where in the morning anyone can use the pool then in the afternoon/early evening each barn has a private slot then there is swimming for anyone later on in the evening.
  • Please bring your own swimming towels for use in the pool as the chlorine can discolour the white towels we use in the barns.
