Completed in 2018, The Little Folly is a lovingly-crafted, completely bespoke hideaway for two adults, privately secluded on a North Norfolk family farm.
Resembling an ornate and historic pavilion, the circular retreat features a parade of windows that allow daylight to flood joyfully inside, and cosy furnishings to help you feel at home from the moment you arrive.
(That ‘homely’ feeling will be compounded by the delicious gifts left for you by friendly owner Lisa, which include cookies, bread, and a selection of tasty breakfast items for your first morning).
Brew a cuppa – or pop open a bottle of fizz – and relax on the furnished patio, taking in the incredible views of open, rolling farmland… and if you’re lucky, the occasional grazing deer.
Linger outside chatting into the evening, when watching the sun begin its blazing descent behind the trees is a glorious treat. If you can get up early enough, the sunrises are just as spectacular.
Be warned, however: even the earliest of early risers may struggle to get out of the snuggly, sumptuously-dressed bed!Keep reading
