The mosaic paving slabs are bordered by pretty flower beds and is a real sun trap throughout the day. There is a table and chairs to seat up to 6 guests and a charcoal BBQ and parasol, perfect for al fresco dining on a warm summers’ day!

There is also an outdoor tap which is really useful to wash off your sandy toes and muddy boots after a day out exploring the best of North Norfolk.

Room Descriptions

Living Area

The open plan living area is the perfect space for spending quality social time together whilst still being able to enjoy your own pursuits. The vaulted ceiling, Velux windows and bifold doors give this room a very light and spacious feel to it, while the exposed wooden beams give it some added character. Combined with the contemporary furnishing, this is a really lovely room in which to kick back and relax! In the summer you can pull the bifold doors right back and unify the interior and exterior spaces and take advantage to the warm summer sea air!

The comfortable lounge area has 2 sofas and an armchair as well as a Smart TV – ideal for some “Netflix and chill” time!

The dining area has a stylish dining table and can comfortably accommodate up to 6 guests. Set just adjacent to the kitchen area, it is perfect for entertaining while not leaving out the head chef of the group!

Staying at
Church Barn

Quick guide to your location

Wells-next-the-Sea is one of North Norfolk’s larger coastal destinations. Formerly a major port for the export of grain, its harbour is now used by smaller craft offering fishing cruises and boat tours. Children love Wells for its many amusements and its beach hut lined sands. A day at the beach in Wells can be easily filled and it is often a favourite spot for families with its huge beach and woodlands.

Church Barn is really well presented. Lovely sheltered courtyard garden. We didn't venture far and enjoyed all the local galleries. For plant lovers, Little Creake plant nursery we would recommended, also Little Walsingham Farm shop.

We have had a lovely and peaceful week in Church Barn and don't want to leave! Lots to return for! We have seen and visited lots of lovely thing! The barn is very clean, warm, comfortable, well equipped - excellent showers, great parking, comfy beds, all very high quality! Lots to do in wells, you don't need to move your car and we used the coast buses too! The weather was mixed but that doesn't matter when you are in a beautiful home! Thank you!


Church Barn is a delightful accommodation.This comfortable cosy and stylish cottage contributed to our perfect Norfolk trip.


Wonderful stay in a quite relaxed atmosphere.Wells town has plenty of food and entertainment and our trips out were great. Light railway and steam train were exciting for the kids. Weather was kind and we look forward to a return in the future.


We have had a marvellous time. We love Wells and now we love Church Barn! Very comfortable accommodation and very well equipped. Brilliant!


'Fantastic week, in a real home from home! Wells is beautiful, with lots of lovely restaurants (book well in advance!). Holkham Hall is a must, to drive or walk to from Wells beach. Burnham Market for a quick shopping fix is quaint. Meals at The Jolly Sailors Brancaster and The Orange Tree at Thornham were great. The barn is beautiful, everything you need for a fabulous week away. So relaxing with your gorgeous courtyard garden always bathed in sun. Just lovely! The Globe was a fab ending to our week in Wells!'
