Accommodation in Houghton
Foxglove is a peaceful eco-friendly hideaway in the depths of rural Norfolk. Surrounded by open countryside, this secret gem of a location often gets overlooked by those dashing to the coast. But slow you down (as we say in Norfolk) if you’re looking for a quiet escape, but still only a short drive to the coast, local pubs, attractions and nature reserves, take a look at all that Foxglove has to offer throughout the year.
In the middle of nowhere but not far from anywhere, Hollyhock is a very comfortable and bright eco-friendly cottage, offering the opportunity to enjoy the tranquillity of rural Norfolk.
Once a Victorian Station Master's house, now a fabulous peaceful woodland retreat, full of character and colour, with easy access to both coastal and rural North Norfolk.
