The detail

Hidden away in a beautiful wildflower meadow, made from timber and salvage, this charming wood cabin is straight from a story book. If you've ever imagined yourself escaping the modern world, leaving behind the emails, laptops and WiFi to bathe in the sound of nature then Albion Nights is for you.

This tin-roofed cottage sits on the far side of a six-acre meadow, which has a pond and is home to a plethora of bugs, birds and bees. Albion Night's rustic romance will enchant visitors from the moment they set eyes on it. A beautifully crafted terrace has been constructed from local tree trunks which have been used to create the columns which hold up the ramshackle (but perfectly secure) roof.

A wicker sofa draped with luxurious sheepskins provides the ideal spot to gaze out over the extensive landscape, alternatively, guests can hop into the outdoor tub and soak in the a hot bubble bath, whatever the weather. Inside, the cabin has been lovingly filled with rustic fittings, always stylish and always comfortable. The living and sleeping area is nice and open plan and is home to a cosy wood burner, arm chairs and a kitchenette (equipped for simple suppers) and small dining area. The abundance of quilted rugs and throws make for a homely, welcoming environment and provide a lovely contrast with the reclaimed pallet and corrugated iron walls.

Floor to ceiling curtains divide the area between the sleeping and the living spaces and they are pulled back to reveal a large, bespoke, wooden double bed which sits underneath a lovely window which opens out onto more of the wonderful natural world outside. Above the bed there is a large skylight - so snuggle down under the stars for a wonderful, uninterrupted night's sleep. There is also an en-suite bathroom which has eco-friendly bathroom products and large, fluffy towels.

Albion Nights is situated in the Waveney Valley on the Suffolk and Norfolk border. There is a huge coastline to explore, from the wilds of Dunwich, round through Southwold and Walberswick, onto Winterton-on-Sea and further along to the stunning North Norfolk coastline at Holkham, Wells-next-the-Sea and beyond. The Norfolk Broads are also close by, as are plenty of walking and cycling routes. Historic Norwich is just a 20 minute bus ride away and the nearby market towns Bungay and Beccles are great places to stock up on local produce. Foodies will love the area and favourite eateries include The Anchor at Walberswick and pub favourites at The Fleece Inn at Bungay.

Absolutely amazing place to stay if you're looking to get away for peace & quiet. The cabin really is off the grid in its own private meadow after a 5 minute walk through a wooded area to get to it. We were very lucky with the weather, blazing sunshine throughout our stay which made our time even more enjoyable. My partner loved the outside bath & cooking fresh steaks from the farm next door over the fire pit was a great dinner. Helen was a lovely host, helpful, friendly & knowledgeable. I simply cannot recommend this place highly enough.

One of the most relaxing breaks ever. The magic starts from the moment one arrives and is guided to the cabin along an enchanting route through a little forest. The cabin was warm, clean, and well laid out, with plenty of quirky (but practical and useful) features. The cabin is rustic in every way EXCEPT for the high efficiency insulation, and environmentally kind heating set-up. From the "push plank" style bed with fantastic mattress and linen, and easy chairs covered in throws inside, out onto the balcony with hot tub and down to the fire-pit and the two eating/seating areas, this is definitely a place to enjoy. A well-equipped kitchen too, so no need to leave at all. If one does want to explore, nearby Bungay has all you need - from brilliant local butchers and delis, to antique and bric-a-brac shops - as well as the "normal" places like Londis and a particularly helpful medium-sized Boots too. If one does want to explore further afield, Helen has put together a list of interesting and useful places nearby and on the coast, which is sent once your booking is complete. A lot of work has clearly gone into this well thought-out and presented offering. Thank you.

Amazing place to stay! Everything was beautifully thought out - loved all the thoughtful touches like breakfast ingredients from the farm shop. We had such a lovely time toasting marshmallows and making a fire in the wood-burning stove. The outside bath was beautiful too!
