Wroxham Barns is one of Norfolk's leading tourist attractions. With its accent firmly on quality and with strong green credentials, it manages that really rather rare thing - of appealing to different ages. Grown-ups enjoy pottering around the shops and workshops, often chatting to the artists themselves or stopping to watch a craftsman create something unique. With a wood turner, stained glass specialist and Chris Hutchins from Norfolk Sketches, you will find the gift that is just that bit special. Fashion lovers should seek out the Gallery where labels such as Seasalt, Ness and Steilmann are on offer along sidehand bags, scarves, hats and more. And Sugar and Spice offers quirky children's pieces which are much more fun than items offered in the High Street. Foodie lovers are especially well catered for as the Pantry is packed with delicious food, much sourced locally so you can stock up your own store cupboards with jams, chutneys, oils,wines and more.

Not sure what to think of this place, on one hand my 3 year old loved feeding a lamb, she was so excited but on the other hand it was really pricey for a family. Don't think I'll ever go back there. It's a shame...More

A thriving hub for crafts, on site distilled/made alcohols, hand made fudge and other skilled works! A great place to buy gifts for friends and family. Although I will say that I don't think you could spend a whole day here - the whole place...More

Lovely setting, but goods very expensive. I almost made a purchase, but the man serving in the cider-shop had a really bad attitude, almost arguing with another customer. He then closed for lunch?? Nice, just nothing for my sister and me.

The barns are a little shopping village just outside of Wroxham. It's beautifully presented and maintained. There is a range of shops which are mainly craft studios like the stain glass work shop or the wood craft shop but it's very interesting to see the...More

Was excited to visit this site after seeing an advertisement in The Broadlander. There was no mention of charges for the farm. We thought that the cost of £6.90 per person to get into the childrens farm was too much for what was in there....More

Not quite sure which review you have read but it certainly wasn't mine. I did not say anything about a beach or its opening hours or coffee and cake for that matter.

There are a number of locally brewed ciders, the tastes differ according to the apples, but they are far better than bulk standard supermarket ciders. Superior products obviously command a higher price, but given the quality... More
