Secluded in the heart of the Broads National Park AONB, Starry Meadow is a beautiful rural site that’s home to many lovely things: a diverse array of wildlife, blissful healing therapies, and friendly rescued animals including goats, pigs, and donkeys.

Along with a selection of shepherd’s huts, adults-only accommodation includes Cozy Nook; a rustic pixie hut that looks as though it’s been plucked straight from the pages of a magical fairytale.

Occupying a three-acre woodland meadow space all of its own, you’ll be completely surrounded by gently-rustling trees, vibrant carpets of flowers, and wildlife that includes playful rabbits and grazing red deer.

What better space to relax and reconnect with the one you love the most? Particularly when Cozy Nook’s many al fresco delights include a stargazing firepit, a barbecue for sizzling sunset suppers, and even a dedicated ‘thinking chair’ for two!

Inside your hut awaits a comfy double bed (bedding is not supplied) with quirky wildlife-themed décor, wooden furniture, and holiday essentials that include a kettle and toaster. There’s also a fridge and a microwave for indoor catering, and a TV and DVD player to keep you nicely entertained after the sun goes down.

You’ll also have a private, heated bathroom area with a double walk-in shower, toilet, and stone sink… all you have to do is bring your favourite towels!

If you don’t want to see another soul during your stay, that’s no problem at all, since this is a private space that’s ideal for getting lost in deep conversation or a good book. You could also breathe out and relax in your gentle rocking chair, amidst the meadow’s magnificent circle of tall silver-birch trees.

Pack a picnic and head for the nearby coast, or hire a day boat just five minutes away, and get up and close and personal with the shimmering Broads. Take the Mississippi charted river cruise from Horning, or visit the colony of sealions at Horsey Gap.
