Glamour, glitz and impossible kitsch

Cliff Barns has its tongue firmly in cheek but its smile is a mile wide. Yours will be, too. Get the posse together and revel in psychedelic Wild West-themed glamour, glitz and impossible kitsch. Hit the hot tub. Play ping-pong on the patio.

Revel without a pause

Cliff Barns is a Hollywood A-lister with a flair for the dramatic, a love of chandeliers and cowhide and an infectious sense of fun. Get ready to be converted to this Norfolk barn. This is rancho-deluxe meets psychedelic Wild West meets Narborough’s strawberry fields.

Revel without a pause with 17 of your best buddies amid Aztec rugs, saddles, moose heads, wagon-wheel chandeliers, vaulted ceilings and river-rock fireplace.

Get all convivial, with our chef and waiters on hand. Bump up the numbers with a yurt or lawn marquee. Stargaze from the hot tub in the Spanish-style courtyard. Order a bucking bronco for an impromptu rodeo. Play ping-pong on the patio.

Kids will love the dressing-up corridor, board games and bunk beds. Adults will love the glamour, glitz and impossible kitsch.

Gardens and Hot Tub

Set in four acres of gardens and grounds, you are not going to go wanting at Cliff Barns.

A truly decadent but, we feel, essential garden feature is the 10 seater Hot Tub. Looking over the hacienda garden and under an all-weather canopy, it’s just waiting for you to climb in, open a bottle of bubbly and enjoy!

Completely secluded and enclosed, the Spanish Garden courtyard is a safe playground for kids of all ages, and comes with barbecue and covered dining area; the western end is a real sun trap in summer so take to a lounger and soak up the atmosphere.

Living Spaces

The living room feels like a movie set, vast with vaulted ceilings, a river-rock fireplace and floor to ceiling fold back picture windows.

At the cosy end of the dining room, this is the perfect place for lounging in front of a roaring fire with a cup of tea and the papers. In summer the breeze from the French windows and the tinkling of the fountain soothes and relaxes.

The first stop for fun, is the corridor, it’s home to our fancy dress wall, displaying all kinds of crazy outfits. The Stylist perfectly sums up Cliff Barns: “Loud Dallas-style interiors in rural Norfolk!

 

 

Cooking and Dining

The kitchen is a delight to work in. Looking over the strawberry farm through picture windows to glorious sunset views it is fully equipped with all the professional equipment you need to live out those Nigella or Gordon fantasies.

The open plan dining area seats parties from 16 to 50. It’s a really versatile space.

A huge sideboard with over mirror perfectly complements twinkling candles and our extraordinary Black Forest eagle sculpture sets a dramatic mood for anytime dining.
