North Norfolk

The village of Edingthorpe is perfectly placed between the North Norfolk coast with the attractive seaside towns of Cromer and Sherringham, the cathedral city of Norwich with its many restaurants, shops, theatres and museums, and the Norfolk Broads with its seemingly-endless, beautiful waterways, wildlife and walks. Just 2 miles from the nearest beach, there are also secluded, sand-duned expanses shortly to the south where the local seal population come to have their cubs.

The local market town of North Walsham is only 3 miles from Church Farm Barn and the pretty village of Aylsham is some 11 miles west. Near Aylsham, you will find the stunning Jacobean National Trust property of Blickling Hall while Felbrigg Hall is on the way to Cromer.

Eating Out in Norfolk

Excellent places to eat are: The Black Boys at Aylsham; the Gunton Arms at Thorpe Market; the Hunny Bell at Hunworth; and Loch Fyne with its fish courses in Norwich. The Crown Inn at Banningham serves a good Sunday roast as part of an extensive menu. The Erpingham Arms has been re-furbished and is building a good local reputation for food. For excellent fish courses visit the Bure River Cottage Restaurant in Horning. Jamie Oliver’s Italian has opened in Norwich and is well worth a visit both for the food and the experience.

Locally, the Vernon Arms at Southrepps has the feel of a good local pub whilst also serving very good meals. The Walpole Arms at Itteringham is re-opened under the ownership of a local farming family and has rapidly built a reputation for good food in a convivial atmosphere. The Blue Bell in North Walsham and the Lighthouse in Walcott cater for a wide variety of tastes. The Chubby Panda and LaBone in North Walsham provide local Chinese and Indian dishes respectively.

Norfolk Produce

We take pride in using as much local produce and ingredients from around Norfolk as possible, here are a few of our suppliers:

Fresh free-range eggs come from Green Farm at Edingthorpe Green and local jams are made by Edwina at Honey Top Farm also in the village.

We are very fortunate with the excellence of the butchers in our area. Tavern Tasty is Norfolk’s only accredited rare breeds butcher and offer superb quality.

Letheringsett Mill provides the flour, muesli and oats for the Barn’s freshly-made bread and breakfast choices of muesli and porridge.
