About Peter Allingham
Brazenhall Barns: These are owned and operated by Peter Allingham. Peter has been in the holiday business since 1994, running the high-end specialist operator, Ancient World Tours. Peter's family has farmed the surrounding area of Norfolk for well over a hundred years and Brazenhall Barns are luxury holiday homes converted from ancient livestock yards - yards which were mentioned in 18th centurly French travel journals as being of exceptional quality!
Peter Allingham purchased this Barn in 2011
Why Peter Allingham chose Fakenham
Brazenhall Barns is redecorated top to bottom two years so the Barns always looks 'just opened'! I grew up in this part of Norfolk and for me it is one of the most beautiful parts of the UK with gentle rolling hills (Norfolk isn't as flat as they say!), delightful villages, bags of history and plenty for younger visitors to do.
What makes this Barn unique
We have some unusual features at Brazenhall Barns. Not only can we accommodate 14 in the Barn and 6 in permanent beds in the Lodge but we can have up to 22 people dining inside our outside the Barn. This makes both properties ideal for hire if you are looking for a family reunion or special birthday party. The Barns are surrounded on three sides by lovely summer meadows and these are yours to enjoy during your stay.
Amazing place to stay!
We had the BEST time at Brazenhall! The house is great, spacious and flooded with light. Everything is super comfortable and the beds are amazing. The standard of decoration is first class. We were able to eat outside some of the time and the patio, which is enormous, was the perfect place for it. We will definitely be back!

Brazenhall certainly has the WOW Factor!
Stayed at Brazenhall Barn for a long weekend in September 2015. Family reunion with people travelling from Ireland, Dorset, Essex and Surrey. We weren't disappointed!! An immaculate holiday home which is equipped and furnished to the highest standard. Comfortable bedrooms, ultra modern bathrooms, fantastic kitchen/dining/living area. I could go on and on! We treated ourselves to Sally's superb cooking on Saturday night and again we weren't disappointed. Can really recommend. Great location with loads to do. Can be at the seaside within half an hour. One of our favourite outings was to local Langham Glass where we watched a glass making demonstration and even had a go ourselves. Really thrilled that we found Brazenhall and hope that it wont be too long before we return! Very special touches were fresh flowers plus wine/groceries to welcome us. Thank you.
We stayed for a friends 40th birthday and had a wonderful time. A fabulous venue with immaculate rooms and the food was fab too. Cant wait to use the venue again, thank you.
Thank you for your lovely comments - we do our best! I'm glad you enjoyed Sally's food. Lots of our guests use her service when they don't fancy cooking for themselves so it's good to know you appreciated her food as much as we do!
We look forward to welcoming you back.
All the best,
Special interest holidays: Just a couple of miles away is the ‘Extreme Adventure Company’ with treetop swings, walks, a 3G swing and it’s famous 1000 foot zip wire! There is a small course too for more junior members of your party. The stunning Pensthorpe Park is just past Fakenham and is well known as the host of BBC Springwatch in 2009 as well as being voted Norfolk’s Best Visitor Attraction in 2009. Here is superb wildlife, walks, gardens, shops and restaurants and there’s plenty to do for all ages. Travel: Children (of all ages!) love steam engines – and the delightful Wells and Walsingham light railway offers a charming way to spend an afternoon. Operating between April and the end of October, this narrow gauge railway (the longest of its type in the world) passes through some great countryside on its half hour journey to and from the coastal town of Wells with its quay and excellent sea food. Further Details: North West Norfolk is one of the last unspoilt parts of the UK with plenty of charming villages, excellent restaurants and, of course, the famous Norfolk coastline is only a few miles away with delightful walks, great sandy beaches and some superb bird-watching opportunities. We’re minutes from Fakenham where are there are two large supermarkets, a cinema (for the odd rainy day), bowling alley and sports hall and plenty of smaller shops to keep you interested. Close by are two of Norfolk’s most popular shopping towns which are packed with lovely small shops, restaurants and pubs. These are Holt and Burnham Market – bywords themselves for lazy sunny days pottering around antique shops before settling down to an exceptional lunch. There are plenty of excellent pubs and restaurants in the area and these are shown below. We can do no better than quote directly from their website. Our local taxi firm, Tiny's Taxis (01328 856 314) are very happy to provide an excellent service to and from the restaurant of your choice if none of you fancies driving.
