Nor–Folk Stays – the Water Cabin

Nor–Folk Stays


The Water Cabin by the Nor–Folk.


The Water Cabin is the first Nor–Folk Stays project – a 1930’s cedar clad cabin nestled in the heart of the Broads National Park on the River Thurne.

We collected the keys in June 2018 and spent six months sympathetically and sensitively renovating it with the help of local craftsman. The two bedroom cabin (which sleeps four) has an adjacent boat dyke with river frontage and countryside views to the rear.

“The Broads, a breathing space for the cure of souls,” Ted Ellis.





The Water Cabin is the perfect base to explore Norfolk – a county in the East of England, UK. Located on the River Thurne in Repps with Bastwick, it is just 30 minutes East of Norwich and 15 minutes from the coast.

Over the coming months we will be creating a curated guide to this beautiful county, featuring our personal favourite places and recommendations.
