Dating back to the mid-18th century, this traditional Norfolk brick and flint barn conversion has been stunningly revamped without qualms about its modern identity. Offering countryside luxury self-catering just a few miles inland from the coast, Blue Tile Farm Barn has the means, style, and confidence to entertain large families and groups of friends.
Ushering in light and style
Even on the first approach, Blue Tile Farm Barn greets you with its dazzlingly stylish contradiction: a ground-to-roof glass entrance flanked on either side by traditional brick and flint walls, farm fields to the horizon in the background. To make this statement even bolder, you can see these farm fields right through the house, through the matching ground-to-ceiling windows on the other side of the sitting room. The stylistic effect is immediate and hugely successful – a bright and inviting interior awash with natural light, featuring sleek, modern fixtures and design, a mezzanine sitting area under vaulted ceilings, and contemporary art that echoes the vivid, iris blue wall around the feature wood burner.
Ironically, a quick trip into the village, or a day spent at the beach, just a short drive north, may feel more like a step back in time than a whole week in this barn. There are footpaths and cycling lanes in the area, and monastic ruins in the nearby village of Binham. Back at the Barn, though, after a nice day out, the grown-ups can put a movie on for the kids on the 3.5-meter wide projection screen, pour themselves a nice drink, and throw together a little meal to later eat al fresco while they rehash the day. Having already weathered the test of time, you might want to think that the Barn’s new look is equivalent to teaching an old dog new tricks, but the Barn’s unequivocal elegance just proves that it has plenty of youth in it yet.
Bedrooms and bathrooms
Blue Tile Farm Barn has enough room to comfortably accommodate nine guests, and every room features its characteristic, contemporary elegance. Under a double-height, vaulted ceiling, the super-king size master suite benefits from an en-suite bathroom, complete with a double-ended bath, sound system, WC, and large shower cubicle. Next are a super-king size room and a twin room, both of which share the convenience of the family bathroom. Upstairs past the mezzanine is a child’s dream room, featuring two built-in, full-size cabin beds and paddle/hit and miss steps up to a third full-size single bed. Children will love the tunnel that runs behind the paddle steps linking the two lower beds.
We welcome one large or two small well-behaved dogs but please also refer to our booking policy regarding pets. We can include six towelling robes, a travel cot and high chair. A starter pack of fuel for the wood burner is provided. The SONOS sound system plays throughout the main rooms. Mobile phone reception is good.
Special Note: Please be aware that there are some changes of the level throughout the property, and that the driveway is shared.

We had a wonderful stay at Blue Tile Farm Barn, a perfect venue for a weekend away with friends or family - and were delighted that the dog could join us! The barn is finished to an exceptionally high standard and is beautiful both inside and out. I'd highly recommend staying here!Ms Amy De-Keyzer - 24th January 2018
As soon as we walked into Blue Tile Farm Barn, we were hit by the fantastic scent of the most exquisite diffuses I've ever encountered. And so the tone was set - the first of the senses to be hit with the pleasure you expect at a first class spa in the very best hotel. With beds, linen and bathrooms to match, we have never been fortunate enough to find ourselves in self catering accommodation that quite matches up. Every comfort is catered for in a beautiful building, lovingly revived with boundless joys of elegance and style. We very much hope to repeat the experience in the not too distant future. Thank you for the experience! Helen and George - 8th September 2017
