It’s a generous place to stay with a welcome hamper of Norfolk products, seasonal vegetables from the owners’ allotment, fresh flowers from the garden, eggs from the chickens you will meet and juice from their own apples. There’s a wildlife meadow to wander and an array of birds you might be lucky to spot: snipe in the pond, nesting kestrels, swallows and starlings, robins and pink-footed geese in winter.
Cooks will be very happy in the kitchen – Emma is a keen cook so knives are sharp, pans are pukka and there’s a big island for joining in. Choose to eat on the balcony or the decking below. You’ll find a barbecue facing west, a lawn big enough for kicking a football about and a shared games barn with a fire pit plus a pool table for rainy days.
A ten-minute walk will take you to Winterton-on-Sea for village shops, fish and chips, a tea room, pub and café and there are two good farm shops nearby so you can shop local.
