The small north Norfolk village of Great Snoring is a charming rural village only 7 miles inland from the coastal town of Wells-next-the-Sea. At the centre of Great Snoring stands the 13th century church of St Mary. The village itself is a very traditional Norfolk village with pretty red brick and flint cottages.


There are many thoughts from locals at to where the intriguing name of the village and its sister village Little Snoring derived from : possibly from the form of snow in the villages in a circle ‘snow ring’ to the more accurate history of the 14th century gentry the ‘de Snoryng’ Family. Ideas can also be traced back to 450AD and the Saxon invasions where the name of Snoring as a settlement of Snear (meaning swift, bright or alert)


The neighbouring village of Walsingham is best known for the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham and the grounds of the Walsingham Abbey are famous for the spectacular ruins of the mediaeval priory and a place of pilgrimage. During the late spring the grounds are equally famous for the carpets of bluebells displayed the 18-acre woodland and throughout February you can see the masses of tiny white snowdrops. Walsingham village well worth a visit there are many cafes quaint shops and pubs including The Black Lion restaurant. The market town of Fakenham is only 4 miles away and the picturesque town of Holt is 12 miles north east of the village.

this is the best property we have stayed in and loved it.

The Rowan's, 29th of April 2024

Just a quick wee note to say how much we all enjoyed our stay at slumber barn. It was a fantastic property and the attention to detail was fab.
It is a beautiful part of the country and we as a family would definitely like to come back so we hope all was in order when we left and we took good care of slumber barn during our stay.
Please pass on our thanks and appreciation to the lucky owners and to you and all the staff at sowerbys who couldn’t have been nicer to deal with.
Hope to book again in the not too distant future!!
Kindest regards

What a wonderful week we have had in Slumber Barn. We've enjoyed beach days at Wells, Holkham and Brancaster. Sherringham train ride to Holt and back and a seal trip to Blakeney point.

The Hitchcock Party, 23rd of July 2021

We have had an amazing week here at Slumber Barn. We loved the gardens and the hot tub and we liked having two outdoor seating areas . The house is really well set out for entertaining and everything we needed was provided. Slumber Barn was beautifully furnished, lovely bedding and towels. Very much felt like a hotel. The weather was exceptional this week so we spent most of our time at Holkham and Wells beaches. In all it was a beautiful stay in your very stylish barn - We hope to return.

The Abrams Party, 16th of July 2021

We've loved our week at Slumber Barn. It is an amazing spot. We really enjoyed sitting outside in the sunshine overlooking the field and enjoying the wildlife - it was so special to see the resident barn owl. We hope to be back!
