The Experience

There’s an old gardener’s cottage theme going on here which will surprise and delight you the minute you open the front door. But no old gardener enjoyed such style and sustainability: two comfortable armchairs are placed by a log-burner, the kitchen is perfectly formed, and there is much use of reclaimed and vintage materials. It’s a delightful place for lovers, young or old.

You’ll find several types of tea, coffee capsules and a smart machine, all the basics for cooking in the cupboards and a tray of port and gin as well as Fever Tree tonics waiting for you. Your mattress (steps provided) is made of wool and the bed linen is gorgeous; luxuriant plants give the sunken bath (inspired by Japan) a greenhouse feel.

You’re deep in the Glaven Valley so walks are glorious but you’re also very near the marshes at Cley and Salthouse for magnificent birdwatching, and the coast for long beaches with huge skies.

Our weekend was just what was needed! Made even more special by the fact you thought of everything. Our stay was cosy, relaxing and every corner of the cottage was so thoughtful. Hamish, the pup, loved it too, specially the heated floors where he laid most of the time. Many thanks!

Better late than never to say how much my husband and I enjoyed staying at Spinks Nest in February. The Cottage is quirky and delightful in its decor and set-up; small but perfectly formed. We went for long walks on windy winter beaches, gratefully returning to a cosy fire. Ana assured us there would be a garden planted later in the year in which to enjoy breakfast or an evening drink outside. For us, the fabulous bed, the amazing shower/sunken bath, the clever lighting as well as delicious bread, fruit, coffee, tea, biscuits and tipple left by Ana were all perfect. Great pub in the village.

Lisa, Greater London

What a beautiful space to spend a few days in. All your hard work and attention to detail and care shows and shines through. This corner of Norfolk is so atmospheric and romantic, we really enjoyed a snow drop walk in Little Walshingham. The Hunny Bell also made us a lovely supper. Many thanks! We look forward to visiting again!

Cristy, London

This is the perfect place to unwind from city life. Set deep in rural North Norfolk yet within easy reach of the coast is this romantic gem of a cottage. It has everything needed for a stress-free break: a large comfortable bed, a sunken square bath, well equipped kitchen and gin and tonics awaiting your arrival. Cosy up in front of the wood-burner and enjoy being together in a peaceful idyll.

The neighbourhood

The village retains a medieval feel with Manor House, church, farm and small cottages. Hunworth Hall is nearby and the beautiful church of St Lawrence. The coast is a few minutes' drive for walking, birdwatching, water sports and a great selection of restaurants, cafes and delis. Buy freshly caught lobster and crab at Cookies Crab Shop in Salthouse.

Ana Perez

Ana and Alan left London for Norfolk several years ago. They bought Spinks Nest (spinks is local dialect for a finch) and spent many months renovating and extending it, during which time they fell in love with the village and the whole area. They live nearby but are on hand to help if you need anything.
