The Kitchen and Dining Room

The kitchen/dining room is open plan, lovely and light.

Take Advantage of the Hot Tub and Fire Pit

After a day of exploring a bit of Norfolk, what could be nicer than coming back to the cottage and unwinding in the hot tub (optional) or enjoying a bit of time in the infra-red sauna. This is total relaxation and hopefully a complete break away from the hustle and bustle of your everyday life.

And whilst you’re outside enjoying all of this, you’ll be able to sit back with the peace and quiet, the only sound being the birds singing in the trees.  It really is a lovely secluded quiet holiday cottage.

As the sun sets, you can then set up the crackling fire pit and roast marshmallows (be prepared to be greeted with a fabulous welcome pack!).
