Sarah’s home is set in the grounds of Heydon, one of Norfolk’s finest Elizabethan houses. In the Dutch-gabled stable block, fronted by Cromwell’s Oak, is her cottage – fresh, sunny and enchanting. Each room is touched by her warm personality and love of beautiful things: seagrass floors, crisp linen and pretty china; the cosy sitting room is set with tea and biscuits for your arrival. Bedrooms are cottagey and immaculate; bathrooms have baskets of treats. Sarah serves a delicious breakfast with golden eggs from her hens, homemade marmalade and garden fruit. Thursford is close and you’re 20 minutes from the coast.
