Full Description
Barn Drift, a well established award-winning, 5 star luxurious and elegant conversion of a spacious 18th century barn in the middle of private land. The house has uninterrupted views of the sea, Glaven Valley and the stunning Cley marshes. From the expansive private gardens Blakeney Point and its sand dunes can also be seen. Barn Drift is the perfect place for a tailored to you unforgettable wedding with friends and family. You create your own wedding experience from scratch using this quintessential bespoke venue as your unique and aw-inspiring backdrop. We are delighted to be fully licensed for weddings and civil ceremonies and we really do offer a blank canvas, allowing you to have what you want in one of the most beautiful places on the English coast. Our unique, unspoilt 1940's aircraft Hanger, just a few yards from the house, looking out to sea is now licensed as well. We have also just completed building a beautiful dining room, over 15 meters long and overlooking the garden, with glass doors opening up the entire 15 meter length of the room.

Travel Notes

Due to the remote location of the house it is accessed down a long farm track - sports cars can manage it but 10 mph advised! The flints though out the soil in North Norfolk can also give you a puncture if you go too fast.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Each wedding held at Barn Drift has been very different and equally special! We have felt extremely honoured to be a small part in each families special moment and love nothing more than guests returning for other events and holidays.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Start by picturing your perfect wedding day from the moment you first open your eyes in the morning ~ right up until bed time. Make lists and delegate! Friends and family are always delighted to help.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

So many! But I always enjoy each family's own creativity brought to Barn Drift - sometimes with masses of home made props (golden pineapples once!) and sometimes just a few wild flowers in jam jars to add to the already dreamy Barn Drift.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

Yes, several but we would never ever divulge names. The house is extremely private ~ so ideal!

Smoked Crayfish tails from the Cley Smoke house dipped in Cley Forge, Picnic Faire mayo - yum

Red wine, always sleep so well after a glass.
