We were not very excited about visiting Grange Barn, based on the description in the National Trust handbook, but were mesmerised when we walked inside the barn, amazed by its scale and charmed by its oak pillars. Standing in the barn it was easy to...More

It's a stunning building. After visiting we did the hour walk from the barn to Paycocke's House. Just ask the guide on the desk.

An interesting old barn which is well presented inside, some interesting information and very enthusiastic staff. The additional woodworking museum is also interesting. The admission price is a bit high if you haven’t got a national trust membership

This is a National Trust property and is hugely interesting - even if it is only a barn! The building itself is large and the facts written around the room are really informative. There is also a small museum which houses the tools and works...More

This is an impressive and very old barn - a medieval monastic storehouse for grain lovingly rebuilt after falling into semi-ruin. Inside it is largely empty but there are good displays of its history and a few examples of agricultural equipment. Nearby is a display...More
