Those 19th-century farmers knew what they were doing when they built these two divine cottages tucked away in the sleepy Norfolk village of Wighton. Now joined together and exquisitely reimagined into a luxurious seaside haven just an eleven-minute drive from the beach, this place has got charm by the trough load. Inside, while the old 1800s bones remain (those exposed oak beams are everything), there's nothing twee about its interiors. Every inch of the home feels like an interior magazine come to life with heirloom-worthy antiques, vibrant textiles, and curated artwork bringing layers of interest and style. Sunny mornings call for lazy coffees on the garden terrace as kids and furry friends run about on the lawns. But if the weather doesn't buck up, that breakfast room with French doors overlooking the garden is just as inviting, with the Aga keeping things toasty. Upstairs, each bedroom set out over two floors is as dreamy as the next. And kids will love the novelty of the two staircases at either end of the house. Game of hide and seek, anyone? When it's time to spread your wings, take your pick from north Norfolk's best beaches. Pack a picnic and head for Wells-next-the-Sea (3 miles) and Holkham (5 miles). The vast sandy shores are the perfect playground for young and old alike when the tide is out. And when tummies start to rumble, the village pub (three minutes on foot) is just the ticket for hearty grub and a warm welcome.
