Crafted with generous helpings of care and creativity, a stay at Albion Nights promises to banish the lingering stress of everyday life.
The hand-built retreat was cleverly created from reclaimed and recycled materials wherever possible, and you’ll find it perfectly nestled amongst a beautiful, six-acre wildflower meadow in the Waveney Valley, with the East Anglian coast in easy reach.
Surrounded by endless scenes of nature, you’ll get to choose exactly how you view those enormous, star-sprinkled skies… whether through the cabin’s huge skylight, or out on the veranda, in a dreamy, bubble-filled bath!
Peacefully off-grid, there’ll be plenty of scope for you to reconnect with the one you love, as you light the wood-burning stove and settle in for an evening of laughter-fuelled conversation. That is, when you’re not snuggled up by the firepit outside, toasting marshmallows as you huddle under downy blankets and sheepskins.
There’s a charming kitchenette, complete with hob and fridge, to take care of relaxed mealtimes (though there’s always the option of pre-ordering tasty meals to be delivered directly to you instead). And when it’s finally time to bid goodbye to the day, you can simply wander along to the cosy bedroom, where you’ll discover a bespoke, sumptuously dressed double bed that you won’t ever want to emerge from.
Oh, and if you thought going off-grid meant compromising on luxurious bathroom facilities, think again. There’s a gorgeous en-suite, complete with a piping hot shower, eco-toiletries, and a state-of-the-art composting loo…
…not forgetting, of course, that wonderful outdoor bath. Personally designed and installed by Sarah Moore, a popular TV presenter and former winner of the BBC’s Great Interior Design Challenge, you can breathe out in perfect comfort, surrounded by candles and bubbles (both to drink from and relax in!)Keep reading
