Deluxe country ranch, Cliff Barns is Norfolk’s ultimate escape for the most unforgettable, day of your life. Tailoring your big day to every individual idea and unique wish, say “I do”and celebrate in style in the cool surrounds of Cliff Barns, designed by Shaun Clarksonand set across four acres of unspoilt Norfolk countryside.
The inspired eccentric English country home clearly displays the vision of the incomparable interior designer Shaun Clarkson and set designer Russell Hall, think wild taxidermy, cowhide sofas, Aztec rugs, tartan and vintage floral fabrics and river rock fireplaces offset with tee-pees and wooden wagon-wheel chandeliers.
Fully licensed for weddings and civil ceremonies, the house comprises a main reception room hosting up to 120 people for the ceremony itself, with gabled ceiling, carstone and brick walls, with full-length windows overlooking the manicured courtyard garden.
After the ceremony, the lavish dining room in the house seats up to 50 guests, for a wedding breakfast, lunch or dinner or up to 80 guests for canapés and boasts a large open fireplace, unique furnishings and impressive sculptures. For larger parties, a variety of marquees can be arranged from yurt villages to teepees, or more traditional pole marquees. The grounds have space to seat the full 120 reception guests.
Exchange nuptials in the balmy spring or summer air and dance after sunset around the bonfire pit, before sleeping under the stars in a variety of pre-arranged tented accommodation, from bell tents to teepees, perfect for guests to stay over. Why not arrange for your favorite foods to be served from dedicated festival style trucks for all night party snacks whilst you listen to music and enjoy your special fiesta. For wedding pictures with a difference, enjoy your first drink as husband and wife on horseback surrounded by the Norfolk countryside.
Pick and choose the services you need and the reception you desire; no two Cliff Barns weddings are ever the same, with every ceremony bespoke to the happy couple. Let your imagination run wild and allow Cliff Barns to organise a special day that really stands out from the rest. All you need to do is dream big and they can make it a tangible reality, whether you’re inspired by the neighbours at Sandringham – the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge - for a royal-themed wedding or wish to go with a chilled festival vibe.
Cliff Barns has accommodation within the house for 18 guests or family members which is included in the house hire. All the bedrooms are flamboyantly themed; choose between a Scottish cabin with Caledonian bed, the Hacienda room overlooking the strawberry fields surrounding the barn, the romantic silver birch tree four-poster Frontier Room with original red riding hood prints or the Bunk Room, the perfect twin room for kids to share with a giant plunge slate bath.
