Situated on the historic country estate of Ketteringham Hall, Pelican Barn nestles between mature woodland and open parkland with views of St Peter’s church and yet is only 7 miles from the centre of Norwich and four miles from the nearest Waitrose supermarket! The early 19th Century barn has been renovated and furnished to the highest standard with careful attention to preserving many original features. Originally the estate carpenter’s workshop, Pelican Barn is a truly unique retreat, having been sympathetically restored boasting hardwood oak and cherry floors and a spectacular handmade oak staircase. Pelican Barn best suits adults due to the configuration and open-plan space offering a perfect adults retreat.

The Hall was once the home of Team Lotus whose Formula One raceshop was situated in the courtyard. The Orangery, which was once the Lotus drawing office, now houses the beautiful Orangery Tearooms, open for coffee, lunch and afternoon tea six days a week, why not book a picnic hamper and on a sunny afternoon, during the cricket season, experience the quintessential village cricket scene.

The owner of Pelican Barn is delighted to offer a £25 afternoon tea at the The Orangery Tearooms -just 5 minutes from Pelican Barn.

We had a fantastic week at Pelican Barn, with the options to sit upstairs or downstairs and the addition of a small table and chairs in the kitchen area not to mention the outdoor areas you are spoilt for choice. The kitchen was stocked with every item you might need and more, the beds are extremely comfortable and the location is fantastic, the fire pit in the garden is a great addition which we used every evening, we also enjoyed watching the birds in the garden whilst we ate our breakfast.. As six adults sharing the property we had three large cars and there was plenty of space for them all. This is an outstanding property that feels like home, if we return to the area we would defiantly book again. we were also greeted by the owner on arrival which was really nice.
