"We couldn't have asked for a better short break away!  Such brilliant and accommodating hosts where nothing was too much to ask.  ..... we enjoyed cycling around the beautiful local area and making use of the BBQ we were kindly lent.  Will definitely recommend to our friends - 10/10.


Alice and Charlie are amazing hosts.  Extremely friendly and welcoming and adorable friendly dogs.  The Loft is absolutely beautiful.  Beautifully located in a peaceful rural setting with easy access to the village and beyond.....


Alice's place is idyllic!  It's in a beautiful spot, it's cosy, classy and comfortable....... we'll certainly be back for a longer stay soon.  Thanks.

Car parking is incredibly easy and is just outside The Loft front door.  Once parked, you walk through your own private terrace with outdoor tables and chairs and into the accommodation.  This outside area is a lovely quiet area to have a drink or even a meal.

The sitting room in The Loft, Hingham

This sitting room has a wonderfully relaxed feel to it, with it's large L shaped sofa, wooden flooring, log burner and logs and large TV.  The sofa is cleverly set up so that it cuts off the kitchen area, but still allowing you to have constant connection with whoever is in the kitchen.

So with the fire going and a good film on the Smart HDTV, you can cosy up and enjoy the evening in this lovely private accommodation.  You’ll be given a constant supply of logs for the log burner so no getting cold here!

You’ll also find OS maps, walking books and information on the local area.

The modern kitchen in The Loft

The kitchen wants for nothing. It has a breakfast bar which is always a useful place to eat, and you even enjoy your meals sitting on some very cool bar stools (well I think they are anyway!).  They have bicycle pedals on a cog as the foot supports (they don’t move though!).  If you feel like being a bit more formal, you can sit at the dining table.  

You'll have use of the coffee machine, a Nutri Bullet, oven, hob, and microwave.

Milk and orange juice are in the fridge, as well as a bottle of red and white wine, crisps, biscuits and dog treats ready for your arrival!

The Bedroom At The Loft

The sumptuous bedroom in The Loft, Hingham, Norfolk

Walk up the stairs, maybe choosing a book on the way up and there at the top is the wonderful spacious bedroom with the original oak beams, a free-standing bath in one corner and an electric log burner in the other corner. 

This is a luxurious room and you’ll have a lovely stay here.  It has a very relaxing atmosphere. 

The bed is a super king size bed with a feather mattress topper and sumptuous feather duvet.

The stairs with lots of books to read!

Next door to the bedroom is a separate room with a vanity unit and loo along with a selection of toiletries, hair dryer and first aid kit.  You also get the added bonus of bath robes to use, so time to really relax. 

The converted Hayloft

As this bedroom is now the converted hayloft, Alice and Charlie have kept the  door which leads out to the wrought iron steps down to the outside of the building, or you can  stand on the top and just admire the horses and view of the Norfolk rural countryside.   

You can contact Alice here for availability

The Stud

The working stud where you'll be staying

This is a working stud so you’ll see horses grazing in the fields, maybe even foals being born if you stay at the right time!  The entrance to The Loft backs onto 5 stables, some of which may well be used during your stay.

Alice and Charlie live in the main house across the yard and are very happy to show you around if you would like to find out more about the stud and the horses they have.  If, however, you like to be private, that is absolutely no problem either!  

The Dog Friendly Loft at Hingham

Dogs are allowed in The Loft, Hingham in Norfolk although you are asked to respect the wishes of the owners in that they are not allowed upstairs in the bedroom.  There is a very good dog gate that you can put across the stairs in the accommodation.  As another option, if your dog is used to sleeping outside in a kennel, Alice will happily make a very nice kennel for them in one of the spare stables that is just outside the property.  There is also a tap if they happen to get dirty and you need to wash them!

There are dog bowls available as well as a dog bed and a lead should you need.

You’re very free to wander around the fields, but you are asked to keep your dogs under control if you do bring them as there are, of course, horses and foals in the fields and stables.

Alice and Charlie obviously know the area well and will be more than happy to suggest some places to eat and visit in and around Hingham.  The historic town of Wymondham is also very close by, and Norwich is a short drive away.
