With the track to the beach running past the garden, the position of this eco-build is idyllic. Play cricket in the garden to the soundtrack of singing birds and crashing waves… and stargaze from the deck at night.
Inside is super cosy, especially when a storm blows: this place is perfect for all-season stays. There’s a multi-speaker Sonos system, a hamper stuffed with treats and a kitchen that’s great for sociable chefs. Come in winter for empty beaches, young seals on the sands and spectacular formations of geese.
Walk along the sandy track to Waxham beach: one of Norfolk’s secrets. Take a boat trip from Horsey (gateway to the Broads) for wildlife in abundance; end the day with dinner at the Ingham Swan. The restaurant is 15th-century, the food is delicious, and the village of Ingham is a seven-minute drive.
