A Rustic Hideaway In A Former Railway Carriage & Boutique Cabin

A Rustic Hideaway In A Former Railway Carriage & Boutique Cabin


I have a total weakness for rustic spaces, do you? I spotted this cosy gem of a retreat over at Desire to Inspire yesterday and fell in love! ‘Settle‘ is a retreat in Norfolk, England created by John – who owns and runs a reclamation yard, and his partner Jo – a well-known floral designer.  The incredible resort offers guests a choice to unwind in rustic railway carriages, bell tents or a boutique cabin overlooking woodland and lakes. I’m particularly in enamoured by the railway carriages and cabin which combine earthy textures and heritage materials with contemporary comfort – so, it’s just to turn up, light a fire, maybe run a bath (wait till you see the outdoor one!)… and relax

The carriages: 

My eye is on one of the three beautifully restored retired railway carriages. Each offer two berths, a lounge area with a wood burning stove as well as a bathroom and small kitchen – although you might prefer to cook supper over the lakeside fire pit! 

The Cabin

If you’d prefer something a little more spacious, there’s also the boutique cabin which looks like something out of a magazine (actually scrap that – it has been in a magazine!). Hand built by Jo and John, the fully equipped cabin has everything you might need for a relaxing retreat – a real home from home! 

The questions is, would you go for the freestanding indoor bath, or the lakeside wood-burning tub? 

Meet you there? 

In case you’re keen – hop over to Settle to find out more (or simply dream!). 

Shall we indulge our shared love of rustic further today? How about these cosy gems? 

Have a hyggelig day friends!
