Marris Barn and The Wagon Shed

Bedrooms: 7  |  Sleeps: 16

*Last minute mid-week, off-peak short breaks at Marris Barn available for smaller groups  – please contact us for a price.

This truly spacious holiday home sleeps 16 guests and all the bedrooms are en-suite. It’s perfect for a holiday with friends and family; the ideal venue to celebrate a special occasion or hen party; or to host a relaxation retreat or corporate event.

Originally the long barn, Marris Barn was sympathetically converted into the ultimate holiday accommodation. It now features an additional contemporary bedroom wing and a luxurious single storey annexe, The Wagon Shed. It is NAS graded level M3I, suitable for independent and accessible visitors; plus it’s a great place to escape to if some of your party want some time away from the general hub bub during your stay.

Marris Barn also has an exclusive leisure complex with its own private indoor swimming pool, sauna, games room and outdoor hot tub. The leisure complex is connected to the main building – so you don’t even have to go outside if you fancy a swim. Yet it’s away from the main living area. So when some of your group are enjoying some competitive games, others can still enjoy some quiet time to watch a movie.

Marris Barn is a superb place for a holiday at any time of the year and will please the most discerning visitors. The design allows the barn to be fully sustainable using solar power and ground source energy. Surrounded by the beautiful rolling green hillsides of the Wolds there is an extensive footpath network leading to quiet unspoilt villages, rural inns and the National cycle route is just 2 miles distant.

Why not book an outside caterer for a truly special celebratory meal?

“Beautiful place to stay with absolutely everything you could possibly need and some things you didn’t know you did!
Beds are so comfortable and bedding top quality.
If you want to go away as a family/friends and all want to be together in one place this is the place.
We had 2 children aged 4 and 2 and the oldest in the party is a sprightly 88 the pool, sauna, hot tub all got used a lot as you can imagine.
This is our second visit and looking to get a date in for our third visit and I’m travelling home in the car completing this review so it’s all fresh in my mind.
The Wagon Shed is great for my mum and dad as they can have a bit of peace when we get too noisy!!
Lots of lovely walks in the middle of nowhere and only a 10 minute drive to the villages of Laceby or Waltham and Cleethorpes maybe 15 minutes by car – Waltham great little boutique shops!
If you’re thinking about this as an option – thoroughly recommend it it’s amazing.”
