About Blackthorpe Barn

Blackthorpe Barn is a vast thatched sixteenth century timber framed barn which forms the centrepiece of a complex of traditional farm buildings set in ancient meadows down an avenue of historic oak and lime trees. 

It provides the venue for arts events and weddings during the year and for two months before Christmas it presents 'Christmas at Blackthorpe Barn'; a festival of everything Christmassy. 

This eagerly awaited event combines probably the best Country Christmas Shop to be found anywhere, with six weekends of top British Crafts, award winning Rougham Estate Christmas trees, workshops, talks, walks, a magical Santa's Grotto and a delightful cafe open daily for the duration of the festival, offering light lunches, cakes, tea, coffee, mulled wine and so much more. 

For many thousands of people across East Anglia and beyond, this event launches Christmas in a way that nothing else can match. For two months a year Blackthorpe Barn is Christmas!

Blackthorpe Barn has masses of free car parking, within walking distance of the building and it is so easy to reach by car. 

Located less than a mile from Junction 45 of the A14, but hidden by both woods and meadows, the barn offers the perfect combination of easy access and a sense of remoteness. Set the sat nav to IP30 9HZ and you will be directed to the end of the avenue. What could be easier?

Why not make Blackthorpe Barn part of your family's build up to Christmas?
