The Little Potting Shed
Fring nr Heacham, West Norfolk
Bijoux, rustic and utterly romantic, this seriously gorgeous retreat, formerly the gardener’s potting shed, is tucked into the walled garden on the beautiful Fring Estate just a few miles from Brancaster beach.
Synonymous with a property you may discover hidden away in deepest France, The Old Potting Shed is accessed via a golf buggy, its former life has been cleverly retained to deliver country living in a wonderfully relaxed style.
Perfect for couples or single travellers wanting to escape from the outside world, guests are afforded ample peace and quiet and enjoy a sense of isolation, yet there is access to the parkland and woodland that surround the estate.
The open plan living/dining/kitchen area is charming with vaulted ceiling and unpainted walls which retain the authenticity of the building and create a striking contrast. The kitchen is small but perfectly formed and has everything you could need.
The sleeping space is divine with vaulted ceiling, exposed wooden beams and velux window which makes the room beautifully bright during the day and at night offers a glimpse of the blanket of stars above. The wet room next door has a surprisingly spacious walk-in shower with a large rose.
The finishing touches are charming, we just love the old wooden boards, cosy sofa positioned to snuggle up on a cooler nights and little pots of herbs. In addition, there’s a small television with Apple TV and there’s WIFI. The whole idea of this little retreat though is to get away from the influences of every day life hence, no terrestrial TV.
What you won’t expect though is the outside bath tub, which you can fill with hot water and bubbles and enjoy a glass of champagne as you watch the sun go down on another day.
Outside you have a private fenced terrace to the front with table and two chairs which overlooks the cottages in the walled garden and to the rear, a private open fenced terrace and lawned garden with garden furniture offering extensive views over the Fring Estate and the surrounding rural landscape.
