We have always had a deep appreciation for the simple things in life – a freshly ground cup of coffee, the crackle of an open fire, the sound of the trees rustling in one of autumn’s gust. The pleasures to be had in the uncomplicated are often the most enriching.
“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realise they were the big things.” – Robert Brault
As summer fades into autumn – the colours in our peripheral vision a golden blur glinting as we go about our day to day – and the afternoons begin to shorten, take time to notice the subtleties in Mother Nature’s seasons. Whilst part of us still yearns for long summer evenings, the change in scenery brings us great joy, gently reminding us that each season has its own winsome characteristics.
On such a topic of simplicity and seasonality, it’s our pleasure to introduce you to a home from home that we discovered recently – Settle Norfolk. A private 30-acre parkland, stay awhile and camp in its beautiful bell tents, retreat for the week in a rustic cabin or spend the night in one of their charming railway carriages.
Tucked away on the outskirts of Norwich, the secluded parkland is a place to feel instantly at home. Each and every intricate detail has been carefully considered, from timber-clad interiors that emanate woodland character in keeping with its surroundings to the beautifully packaged weekend breakfast baskets that turn up on your doorstep. There is not a morsel left uncared.
Books on ‘How To Make Coffee’ accompany hand grinders and pour-over kettles, and the log fire patiently awaits tending. Settle Norfolk elegantly defines the art of slow, restorative living – putting patience and beauty back into the things our world tends to hurry…
A visit we know would be hard to return from.
Be sure to keep an eye out for the launch of its new website and, in the meantime, you can see more over on their glorious feed @settlenorfolk.
