Norfolk

It’s been a busy couple of weeks for us moving house, so we took a little jaunt up to Norfolk for some relaxation this weekend.

My aunt and uncle, Andrew and Bridget, run a B&B in Shouldham, near Kings Lynn: the Chalk and Cheese. The old, red-brick Victorian building used to be the village school, which they bought after it closed and converted it into a rather unique and amazing home. The next change, to B&B and restaurant came later (although they still live in one corner of the building), and later still came an on-site antiques emporium.  The next stage includes two self-contained little cabins in the gardens, which are coming along well!

I absolutely love the main room, the old school hall. Not all the antiques make it into the emporium, and every corner in here is filled with oddities and curios.

A more recent (although well-established now) addition is the huge glass conservatory, where we enjoyed our meals and a never-ending supply of Earl Grey tea in the sun.

After a cosy Saturday night in front of the fire, drinking all manner of different gins (SO much gin!), we headed out for a walk across the fields with the dogs on Sunday morning (luckily avoiding the unexpected hail storm). We are back home now, feeling rather tired but quite refreshed from our little break!
