This gorgeous cottage is perfect for couples seeking a relaxing weekend away. Nestled on a peaceful Norfolk farm and surrounded by serene countryside, it acts as a wonderful refuge to relax, recharge and spend some quality time with a loved one. The newly renovated home is just as impressive as its settings, beautifully designed and finished to provide the utmost blend of rustic charm and modern comfort.
Once the home of the farm’s resident goats, the shed has been transformed into a stunning bolthole, but still retains original features like the high vaulted ceiling and exposed wooden beams. It boasts a spacious open plan interior, bathed in natural light by the large glass doors that lead out onto the patio. On side of the room is the kitchen, dining and living area, and the other is the sleeping quarters and bathroom.
The fully equipped kitchen is a real highlight of The Goat Shed. Fitted with modern appliances, spacious worktops and premium pots and pans, it will turn cooking into a joy rather than a chore. Why not make the most of the amazing local produce on offer to prepare a delicious meal, which can be enjoyed at the dining table or alfresco out on the patio on milder days? If you don’t fancy catering for yourselves, breakfast is served at the farm’s dining room each morning, made up of freshly baked bread, eggs laid by the free-roaming hens and bacon from a local farm shop. Supper and packed lunches are available on request.
Next to the kitchen and dining area is the delightful lounge, with comfy seating, a TV and log burner. It’s a lovely spot to spend cosy evenings snuggled up by the warmth of the fire. When it’s time to sleep, guests can retreat to the luxurious king size bed on the other side of the room. There is the added luxury of a freestanding bath at the foot of the bed, where you can treat yourself to a relaxing soak, perhaps with a glass of wine? A separate bathroom with rain head shower completes the home. Outside the cottage you’ll find the private patio, an ideal place to soak up some sun or savour one of East Anglia’s glorious sunsets. There’s also a BBQ and a fire pit to warm up by and toast marshmallows.
The farm and its surroundings are waiting to be explored and there is a plethora of interesting walks and cycle paths right on your doorstep. The farm grounds back directly into Thompson Common, an idyllic area of the Breckland and a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest, teeming with rare plants, wildlife and prehistoric ponds. Also within walking distance is a 400-year-old local pub ‘The Chequers Inn’, renowned for its hearty food and vast selection of real ales. Norfolk’s charming villages, picturesque seaside towns and historic stately homes are well within reach, as are the popular beaches at Cromer, Hunstanton and Brancaster.
From £200/night for a midweek stay and from £250/night for a weekend stay
