Once the old stables, Grey’s Court is now a generously proportioned barn conversion accommodating up to 10 guests in five en suite bedrooms. Forming part of the Barsham Barns complex, this property has been styled in Scandinavian shades of blue and green to create a calm atmosphere in which to relax. Nestled in the rural village of North Barsham you will find yourself immersed in the Norfolk countryside with an abundance of nature and wildlife right on your doorstep!
Grey’s Court was once the old stables but has been renovated and designed to create a generously proportioned barn conversion to bring families or groups of friends together. Thoughtfully combining modern living with traditional architecture and original features, this property can accommodate up to 10 guests in 5 individually designed en suite bedrooms. The accommodation is set mostly on 1 level and offers a large, open kitchen and dining area, separate lounge, generous garden, and is equipped with a selection of outdoor games including Boules and Swingball – this barn is perfect for people of all ages!
With views across the meadows and the Stiffkey River valley, this rural retreat is a haven for nature lovers, walkers, cyclists, and keen ornithologists.

You can also visit the local Barsham Brewery just along the road at West Barsham. Alternatively, jump in your car and within 5 minutes you can be in the market town of Fakenham, or take a 15-minute drive North and you will be on the glorious North Norfolk coast with the sand between your toes and the wind in your hair!
