Hales Hall & The Great Barn is approached across a windswept common grazed by cattle and carpeted in buttercups. It is situated in the heart of the Norfolk countryside, on the edge of the world-famous Norfolk Broads National Park, just 12 miles from Norwich and two and a half hours from London. Built in 1478 by Sir James Hobart, Attorney General to King Henry VII, this medieval masterpiece is steeped in history and romance and is a world apart.
The Great Barn whispers echoes of centuries gone by with its vast vaulted roof and 180 arrow-slit windows that glitter into life when individually lit by candles. With the flick of a switch the place bursts into the contemporary era with its state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems.
