When you arrive at Indigo Barn, you’ll first be blown away by its spectacular setting.
Surrounded by the sweeping Holkham Estate, the refurbished barn is perfectly positioned on a chalk hill that looks across lush, rolling pasture, out towards chalk ridges that underline the breath-taking North Norfolk coastline.
Then you’ll step inside the barn to be mesmerised by its ultra-stylish, opulent surroundings, all of which reflect and showcase the beauty of the incredible natural landscape to perfection.
There’s a wealth of careful attention to detail throughout, including hand-selected pieces of local artisan craft, and soft furnishings designed to help you breathe out and relax. Even the kitchen has been designed for sumptuous socialising, with its enormous living edge dining table, a central fireplace, and an Aga… not to mention plenty of cosy seating.
Meanwhile a second sitting area doesn’t just offer amazing views through huge bi-fold doors, but leads directly to the scenic garden, where you’ll discover comfy dining furniture, a firepit, and a bar area for stargazing with your favourite tipples.
When it’s finally time to turn in, you’ll not only find four beautiful bedrooms ready and waiting, but four bespoke bathrooms, so there’ll be no cross-legged queues.
Perfect for those who enjoy a little extra privacy, there’s a self-contained annexe with a superking bed; a grand suite that also boasts its very own kitchen, and a private living space with direct access to the garden (for small families, a large sofa bed can be added on request).Keep reading
