Set in peaceful and picturesque surroundings on the owners grounds, with the use of an indoor pool and sauna, this is a perfect bolthole for a couple looking to celebrate any occasion.

Indulge yourselves with a stay at this enticing retreat in Alburgh, Norfolk, close to the border with Suffolk. Idyllic for two guests, and also welcoming one dog, the one-bedroom abode is set in the owners’ beautiful grounds, but does enjoy its privacy. Wander the verdant grounds to your heart’s content, enjoy the use of the shared pool and sauna from the beginning of April to the end of October, and head out to explore the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads, which begin approximately 6 miles from this beautiful bolthole.

Step into the lodge and find yourselves in a stylish, open-plan kitchen/diner, where you will find everything you need to cook delicious dinners with your own ingredients on romantic nights in. Lay the table in here or sit out in the evening sunshine in your private, courtyard garden. Make the most of the dishwasher so neither of you has to wash up. Head on through to the inviting bedroom/lounge afterwards to settle on the sofa or in your comfortable king-size bed to watch a film on the Smart TV. Treat yourself to a long, hot bubble bath before turning in for the night. Have breakfast out in the sunshine of your courtyard garden or go for a morning walk around the grounds and say hello to the alpacas when they lean over the fence. Arrange to have a swim or sauna in the high season. Find you have parking for one car with the retreat.

Drive 6 miles into Bungay to see the castle, shop in delightful independent stores or hire a boat on the River Waveney. Venture 21.5 miles for a day out in fashionable Southwold, with its nostalgic pier, gastropubs and fresh seafood shacks. Pick up a section of the Suffolk Coast Path here if you wish.

What a great little gem! Quality furnishings, and all you could need! The grounds are an added extra to be able to roam, together with the pool and training room! I just loved the little touches from the owner too; from the delicious cakes, to the Prosecco and a crisp white bath robe too! Five stars are really not enough!

The most northerly county in the East of England, Norfolk is a land of beautiful contrasts. From the swooning reed beds and endless maze of waterways in the Norfolk Broads; the unspoilt stretches of fens and shingle spits where bird and wildlife thrive; a famous royal palace and the historic cathedral city of Norwich, this enticing area of England is just waiting to be discovered. Visit Sandringham Palace and see where the Queen lives or find out where lavender grows; you could journey to one of the largest seal haul outs in Europe at Blakeney Point or have a traditional day at the seaside at Cromer and Great Yarmouth. The cathedral gilded city of Norwich is a wonderful place to lose yourself either walking the ramparts of Norwich Castle or the RAF Air Defence Radar Museum. The city has an exceptional array of shops, cafes and restaurants to enjoy. Well connected to the national rail and road network, Norfolk is easily accessible from London, the M25 and from major city terminals.

Norfolk is characterised by its horizons and big skies, straight highways and rural trappings. Also, when it comes to attractions, visitors to the county will be spoilt for choice. If you love animals and birds, head to RSPB Titchwell Marsh, or the Cley-Next-The-Sea. With such a long coastline Norfolk boasts some magnificent stretches of beach – favourites include Cromer, Old Hunstanton, Wells-Next-The Sea, the dunes of Winterton-on-Sea, and Brancaster (a favourite for dog owners).

There are so many places to visit and activities to get involved in on a Norfolk holiday. We have some lovely properties including country cottages, farm conversions, large family houses, apartments and surburban home from homes in our collection. Why not find your perfect holiday home today?
