Foxglove is a peaceful eco-friendly hideaway in the depths of rural Norfolk. Surrounded by open countryside, this secret gem of a location often gets overlooked by those dashing to the coast. But slow you down (as we say in Norfolk) if you’re looking for a quiet escape, but still only a short drive to the coast, local pubs, attractions and nature reserves, take a look at all that Foxglove has to offer throughout the year.
Completely private and semi-detached from Hollyhock (sleeping 4), this charming single storey wooden cottage is surprisingly spacious for two people. It has a lovely deck with stunning views; a great place for some al fresco dining on warmer days or a sundown glass or two after a busy day out exploring. The cottage is bright, modern and fresh feeling with terracotta floors, a well equipped kitchen and a comfortable king size bed just a few of the attractions of this lovely hideaway. With dark night skies, empty country lanes, resident barn owls and neighbouring Houghton Hall Estate, you might not even want to leave the comfort of Foxglove.
All within around twelve miles or less you have so much choice when you do venture out - Brancaster beach, Titchwell and Snettisham RSPB Reserves, the historic town of Kings Lynn, Fakenham market town and races, Peddars Way ancient walking trail, Bircham Windmill and farm park, Norfolk Lavender fields, The Royal Sandringham Estate, the Victorian seaside resort of Hunstanton... and dozens of lesser known treasures in this beautiful corner of Norfolk.
The divide between Foxglove and its neighbour is completely screened with established climbing plants growing up the trellis ensuring complete privacy.
The owners live adjacent to the cottages but do not overlook them in any way.
There is a shared washing machine and tumble dryer facility (coin operated).
Two well behaved dogs are welcome (small additional charge). Horses by arrangement.
The enthusiastic can walk to The Dukes Head pub 2km away across the fields.
There is bike storage.
There is a cot and high chair available on request (please pre-book, no charge).
The properties make use of a biomass boiler and solar panel to help reduce their carbon footprint.
