Architect: Carl Turner
The Cattle Sheds, Norfolk, UK
Based on a working farm in Norfolk, this barn has been transformed from a brick, flint and pantile agricultural building into a light, spacious holiday home under the direction of the renowned architect Carl Turner.
The barn interior makes use of reclaimed materials including floorboards, fencing, museum and school furniture, steel beams and agricultural items, giving it a unique feel. The barn gives access to hundreds of acres of the beautiful surrounding farmland and offers views of rolling countryside. It includes use of the The Sheep Dip, the indoor swimming pool, jacuzzi and steam room.
The Cattle Sheds is a five-bed barn conversion, sleeping 10-13 people. The barn, where the farm cows lived until the 1970s, has been transformed into a wonderfully large open-plan living space, with four of the five bedrooms on the ground floor. All have stripped wooden floors, under-floor heating and en-suite bathrooms. A large en-suite bedroom, upstairs in the roof space, has a huge internal window looking through the roof trusses, down into the living space below.
Downstairs is a large, concrete-floored modern kitchen and living/dining area, which looks out onto the walled garden through 14m of continuous floor-to-ceiling glass. The living areas and garden are south-facing, allowing the sun to pour in all day.
The Cattle Sheds comes with a Smart TV and DVD player in each living area, a Freeview TV in each bedroom, and free WiFi and calls.
The Cattle Sheds is one in a series of three self-contained holiday homes which can be let individually or together. The other Farm Barns include: The Stables, a two-bed conversion, sleeping 4 people; The Piggery, a two-bed barn conversion, sleeping 4 people and The Tack Rooms, a one-bed barn conversion, sleeping 2-3 people.
