We visit the Waxham barn cafe occasionally as it is a convenient stop-over after walking the dogs. The barn itself is of course a stunning historical landmark but not really utilised to it's full potential, and not part of the cafe (not even to shelter...More

Two friends and I, on a sailing holiday on the Broads, stumbled across the barn, after a walk from Horsey Staithe. We were welcomed in by the lady who runs the tea room, despite it being only 5 mins before closing! Delightful tea and home...More

Superb 16th Century thatched barn of immense size restored to its former glory. Wonderful brick and flint walls with amazing mixture of full and hammer trusses. Best thing? They have not turned the barn into a twee museum but have left it completely empty so...More

Lovely setting on a main route to other coastal villages. However, we came purely to visit the barn, which is literally just a barn with no information, stands etc. So if you are going out of your way probably not worth it. If you are...More
