Waxham Great Barn, Grade I

Waxham Barn was built in the last quarter of the 16th Century and was repaired and restored by Norfolk County Council following compulsory acquisition during the early 1990s. The later single storey wings (shelter sheds for cattle) were repaired and one was converted to a new cafe in 2003 as part of the TEACH (training enterprise and assessment in conservation of heritage). Funding came mainly from The Heritage Lottery Fund and East of England Development Agency.

The complex is open to the public during the summer months and is a fantastic venue for many different activities.

For further information, visiting hours or venue hire please call:

The Barn Cafe is open from 10:30am - 5pm
6 days a week* from April 1st to October 31st.

*PLEASE NOTE: The cafe is closed on Wednesdays.

The Cafe serves all home-baked cakes and cream teas and as well as light lunches including soups, quiche, paninis and salads.
