The Wind in the Willows
Muddy says: Literary fans listen up! Not only is this shepherd’s hut as cute as a button, but there are nods to Kenneth Graham’s famous book everywhere
Wind in the Willows is a cute-as-a-button, purpose-built Shepherd’s Hut owned and run by uber-hospitable East Ruston Cottages (who have several properties in the county), and accommodating two guests, plus two small or one medium-sized dog (this is Norfolk after all).
Located in a quiet corner of North East Norfolk – with patchy mobile signal ensuring a peaceful stay – the hut is positioned near several pristine beaches and woods, making it perfect for cycling, country walks and beach-lovers. The market town of Stalham is just two miles’ away.
Built by a local craftsman, the hut has been decorated in vintage folk style, with gingham curtains, red loom chairs, stained glass windows, a real wood fire and a small veranda – perfect for watching the sun set. Furniture includes a raised 6′ double bed, a small table, storage and a concealed sink. On sunny mornings or starry nights, fling open the stable door and let nature in.
Outside there is a small but well-equipped kitchen with sink, fridge and Baby Belling stove; next door is a shower room with sink, shower and toilet.
The paddock is set in open countryside and boasts an enclosed grass area, flower gardens, and a table and chairs for al fresco dining.
