A wedding venue in Norfolk
BUT NOT AN ORDINARY ONE
About the owners
NEIL AND JULIE PURNELL
North Norfolk Barn is owned by husband and wife, Neil and Julie Purnell; experienced hospitality business owners. The pair’s journey into a business started when they took on a caravan site in Norfolk and grew the site from 30 to 160 pitches in 10 years. In 2009 they won the MMM Campsite of The Year Award.
The couple then started the North Norfolk Barn in 2018 following their children’s experiences with wedding planning. They found that the wedding venues in Norfolk didn’t offer much flexibility as well as being very costly. So, the North Norfolk Barn exists to combat the issues which the Purnell’s and 1000s of other couples have faced.

About the area
North Walsham is an Anglo-Saxon settlement which has a weekly Market on Thursdays. Norwich is approximately 14 miles from North Walsham where there’s regular bus and railway connections from the town going to Norwich and the surrounding areas. You’re not too far from local beaches either; Cromer, Sheringham and Mundesley to name just a few, all are within an easy drive.
National trust sites of Blickling and Felbrigg Halls are not too far away if you want to enjoy the country homes and their grounds. Both halls are not far away from Aylsham, (again only a short drive away North Walsham), which is also a market town where you can get on the Bure Valley Railway line, a 15in minimum gauge heritage railway which runs to Wroxham.
