Sleeping nine guests (and their two well-behaved dogs) in four impeccably-styled bedrooms, Cubitts is the ideal escape for groups seeking something different from the norm.
Why? No ordinary holiday haven, Cubitts is a true ‘wow-factor’ conversion of a Norfolk mill that dates all the way back to the 1800s. Surrounded by sumptuous luxury throughout, you’ll also note plenty of characterful reminders of the building’s past as a working flour mill, such as the iron wheels and pulleys on the ceiling.
Accommodation here has been extremely well thought-out, with plenty of opportunities to view the surrounding canal, water meadows and well-stocked fishing pond. See if you can spot a visiting otter or kingfisher, as you cradle your morning coffee!
Sociably spacious and open-plan throughout, you’ll find the main living and dining area on the view-filled second floor, equipped with plenty of comfy seating for everyone. On sunny evenings, you might choose to slide open the French doors and dine al fresco on the balcony – which has to be done at least once, in such a glorious setting!
Meanwhile, the kitchen features everything a budding TV chef might need, including an electric range cooker, and a central island with bar stools.
Discover a single bedroom on the first floor, complete with Xbox console! There are three more bedrooms on the third floor; two superkings with their own furnished balconies and en-suite bath or shower rooms, and one en-suite room that features four single beds, for that fun ‘sleepover’ feel.
Head out to the lawned garden for catch-up drinks and a sizzling supper, as you chat excitedly about the rest of your stay.Keep reading
