The property

Upper Marham 5.7 miles. Settled on a charming working farm in the village of Pentney, Norfolk, is Honeybee Retreat, a lovingly crafted, single-storey pod. Hand-built to the highest of standards and surrounded by picture-perfect countryside, as the name suggests, this pod makes the ultimate romantic retreat for a couple, or an idyllic break for a solo traveller. On arrival, take the steps up and into the studio-style layout, noticing the seamless star details on the door at the highest point of the room. Here, you can find all you need for a self-catering stay, with a well-equipped kitchenette for rustling up a quick meal, and a breakfast bar to dine at while you admire the outdoors. Alternatively, you can take your meals outside and sit on the decking, or head down to the lawned level and make use of the shared fire pit/pizza oven before jumping in the hot tub for a long soak. Back inside, freshen up before bed in the shower room, with robes and slippers provided, before stargazing through the roof window or popping a film on the TV. A unique escape in a beautiful area, choose Honeybee Retreat. Note: This property can be booked with Ref. 1131296, together sleeping up to four guests.

Little Abbey Farm Pods

Little Abbey Farm Pods consist of a collection of two thoughtfully-designed, studio-style pods resting in lovely grounds in the village of Pentney, Norfolk. Both with hot tubs, indoor and outdoor kitchens, and completed to the highest standards, the pods make a superb choice for two couples of friends looking to retreat to the countryside. Overlooking a pond in one direction and actively farmed grounds with sheep, cows and chickens in the other, the true country feel makes the pods a special choice, any time of year. The site is also home to a B&B where the owners kindly extend their services, including use of the breakfast room and you can even order fresh, homemade food, including cakes, and farm produce straight to your pod for that extra bit of rest during your trip. The peaceful location extends into the heart of the country village, with Pentney homing a Pentney Abbey, the castle ruins and its original walls which surround the village; for the more active members of your group, Pentney Lakes is also fantastic for water skiing. Within reach is the waterside historical Hanseatic town of King’s Lynn, with easy access to Cambridge and Ely too. For historians of your group, there are many National Trust Houses to explore, including Oxborough Hall and St George’s Guildhall. A wealth of characterful market towns can also be reached by car, such as Wisbech, home to the amazing historic Peckover House and Gardens, and the city of Peterborough, ideal for a day of shopping and dining. For those looking to sit back and enjoy the nature-filled area, find Welney Wash Wetlands for birdwatching nearby, along with nature reserves and wildlife centres to explore. If you simply want to venture out on foot or by bike, the area is full of lanes, paths and roads to explore and make your own adventure! Whatever you get up to on your Norfolk holiday, choose Little Abbey Farm Pods as your base.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
