The Green Pavilion

Norwich, Norfolk

A wonderful green getaway with wrap-around views of Norfolk nature; walk Weaver's Way, bird-watch at Blakeney, hit the coast at Cromer


5 beds


3 bedrooms


Sleeps 6


Glimpse this award-winning eco home through the lofty trees and wild grasses of deepest Norfolk: who says England is crowded? Step into an open-plan living space which melts into nature through gleaming glass walls. A peaked ceiling soars skyward into a mesh of oak beams, a contemporary wood-burner exudes warmth and cosiness, and a sleek slate-floored kitchen stands to attention along one wall. The building bursts with clever design and thoughtful details: steep paddle stairs to an exciting glazed mezzanine gallery with a low double bed; well-positioned reading lamps; endless log supplies; a cupboard papered with OS maps for inspiration. Two sleek, unfussy ground-floor bedrooms (one with a wet room) burst out to a wraparound veranda and garden terrace with barbecue. The owners, potters, care deeply for the environment and leave you in peace to meet the neighbours: pheasants, deer, butterflies, a tawny owl. Quiet country lanes meander to the coast for birdwatching at Salthouse, a boat trip to Blakeney or crabbing in Cromer. Stroll along Weaver’s Way beside a meadow to afternoon tea at Felbrigg Hall.

Just as described on the website and better. A piece of heaven in North Norfolk. Endless wildlife and plants, quiet, peaceful. The house itself has all mod cons, is incredibly comfortable, warm and cosy. It has all you need for your stay. The Youngs are exceptional hosts. We will be returning again. Access to the coast, to the National Trust locations nearby is easy. Holt super closer. And an impressive commitment to recycling here is refreshing; so seldom seen elsewhere. Massive thumbs up.

The Green Pavilion is the perfect house and location for a relaxing week. The wild meadows are just fantastic. House is very well equipped and maintained. Can highly recommend it.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Joanna & Andrew Young

  • Felbrigg lake is only a 15 minute walk along the Weaver’s Way. A further 15 minutes on brings you to Felbrigg Hall, a National Trust owned Stuart house with an orangery, walled garden, walks and magnificent woods plus a cafe.
  • For bird watchers the salt marshes between Salthouse - 25 minutes by car - and Stiffkey are renowned. There are several bird hides and an unusual RSPB centre overlooking the marshes.
  • A boat trip to Blakeney Point to see the birds, seals and wonderful scenery is recommended.
  • 10 minutes by car gets you to the nearest sandy beaches at West or East Runton. For children Amazona Zoo in Cromer is an unusual delight.
  • The North Norfolk Steam Railway is 10 minutes away by car and makes its picture postcard way from Sheringham to Holt.
  • Blickling Hall is 20 minutes by car to the south. Home to the headless ghost of Anne Boleyn, this magnificent Jacobean Hall contains fine tapestries, paintings and rare books.
