About Us

Church Farm Barns is a family run business in the quiet hamlet of Bircham Newton, on the outskirts of Great Bircham village, North Norfolk. Situated in a private off-road location opposite the church from which it gets its name, the site was a working farm for many generations. The eight properties are all renovated farm buildings which have been converted to a high standard to accommodate the disabled and their families.

As a family business we pride ourselves on the personal touch we provide.

My mother, Emma had Parkinson’s Disease herself and during her time as a Trustee of the Parkinson’s Disease Society she learnt, first hand, the very special needs of those in a wheelchair along with the needs of their families and carers. It was this understanding and her inspirational drive that led to the conversion of the farm buildings to provide warm and inviting holiday accommodation for all these families to enjoy.

All of our cottages are wheelchair accessible, having level access and an open plan room layout including, en-suite ‘roll-in’ wet rooms and purpose built low-level kitchens, especially designed for wheelchair users, their families and carers. Each has its own personal garden. We welcome all members of the family, including dogs.

Our office is on site and we are always happy to discuss your needs for your stay. We provide wireless access to the internet and have a selection of equipment such as hoists, wheelchairs etc. available to hire.

My mother unfortunately passed away in December 2012 aged 62. We will forever miss her but my father and I are dedicated to carry on the business in her memory.
