The delightful village of Barton Turf sits in stunning countryside to the north-east of Norwich. Thanks to its spot on the north-western edge of Barton Broad, the village makes a great spot to stop for a picnic or a wander, and for anyone interested in Norfolk’s unique church architecture, Barton Turf Church is a treasure trove of rare and fascinating medieval details including its incredible original rood screen, which spans the Chancel Arch.

For anyone who wants to experience the unique atmosphere of the traditional Norfolk village, Barton Turf is a must-visit destination. With its delightful village green with its beautiful pond, Barton Turf is a peaceful, unspoilt corner of the Garden of England. The village is filled with incredible traditional architecture, including some of the most picturesque cottages in this picturesque county.

Since Barton Turf has no shops or pubs, it’s not the best place to linger as night draws in, but if you push on to Horning and Thurne you’ll find a warm welcome waiting for you. Barton Turf’s beautiful cottages certainly make up for the lack of supplies though, so if you love Norfolk and want to experience its uniquely inspiring atmosphere, why not moor up and take a stroll?
