Cliff Barns-Norfolk

A ranch? In Norfolk? Think more Mexican hacienda meets country house and you get Cliff Barns. It is the brain child of interior designers Shaun Clarkson and Russell Hall and from the name you may get a notion of the playfulness and fun they had setting up the property.


Set in beautiful Norfolk next to a strawberry farm, Cliff Barns is an eight bedroom single storey ranch designed around a central courtyard.

This large party house in Norfolk is available to hire through The Big House Company

Social spaces

The bedrooms are arranged along two and a half sides of the property with glazed corridors connecting everything internally. The living area, sitting room and boot room comprise the other one and a half sides. All the areas open out onto a central courtyard which houses the 10 seater hot tub with all weather canopy, BBQ, seating and games areas.

The living room has vaulted ceilings and a river rock fireplace and a great selection of squishy sofas and deep armchairs. There are floor to ceiling folding back picture windows opening out onto the patio, which truly connects the living space with the outside. The country kitchen has all the amenities you need to prepare your own menus and the dining/lounge area has a table to seat 18 at one end of the room and a cosy lounge at the other with a  second fireplace – ideal for gathering prior to dinner. The open plan dining area can seat up to 50 for a larger gathering. Don’t forget to visit the Boot Room if you are looking to ‘dress up’ for dinner!

This snug area at our big house in Norfolk has a roaring log fire and comfortable seating
