So late last year, in between the relentless Lockdowns, we managed to get a two night break at Spinks Nest in North Norfolk. I’m a Norfolk girl so this area is well known to me.
Close to Holt and a short drive away from the beach, Spinks Nest is nestled in amongst the Norfolk countryside in a conservation area.
The house itself is a tiny flint, 1 bedroom, boutique cottage which has been renovated using reclaimed materials to ensure it’s in keeping with the original building and surrounding area.
What I loved about Spinks Nest is how the small space has been thoughtfully renovated and decorated to ensure you have everything you need without feeling cramped.
As you walk into the property you are greeted by a small dining table with church pew bench seating and cosy overhead lighting. A great place to sit and play scrabble or cards as well as eat.The kitchen is a galley style with flint wall. The over counter storage is open plan and adorned with vintage style crockery and greenery.The kitchen is complete with every utensil you would need and even has a stovetop whistle kettle.To the left of the kitchen is the bathroom, which is quite spectacular and unexpected.It features a micro-cement sunken bath with brass rain shower overhead. Whether you prefer a roomy shower or a soak in a bath surrounded by candles then you’ll be satisfied.The pipework in the bathroom is all open and the toilet is a vintage pull chain high tank.Up two steps into the living area which is dominated by the original fireplace nook and wood burner. Have a seat in the chairs and read a book whilst listening to the radio or watch the fire, either way it’s a calm space to relax.This area has been cleverly divided so that the queen bed is sat behind the dividing wall and entranced via heavy luxurious curtains.The décor and colour palette is warm and cosy and in keeping with the rural setting. There is under floor heating so you can be sure to be warm even if you chose not to burn the log burner.
Choose Spinks Nest if you are after a romantic getaway to North Norfolk where you have easy access to many marshes and beaches as well as being a great place to view some unique wildlife too.
