Jacob's Folly sleeps 6 comfortably on 3 double beds, 2 of which are double bunks.  There is plenty of seating around the lovely wood-burning stove, perfect for cooler evenings and chats over hot chocolate.  The kitchenette includes a 2-ring induction hob, combination microwave, cold water sink and small fridge, and there is a gas barbecue outside of the folly.  Owners Claire and Andrew have thought of everything, down to BBQ tools and oven gloves, to make sure you have a comfortable stay.
100 metres from the folly is the bathroom block, with an individual wet room that is exclusive to the folly.  This includes a pumped shower, toilet and basin, and baby changing facilities.  Paths to the bathroom and car parking area are lit by fairy lights.
There is also plenty to do on this site, which was once owned by the headmaster of the local school, and had original shepherd's huts on site.  The natural woodland allows for ample opportunities to see bats, owls, deer and foxes, or why not feed the owners' pigs, who love nibbling on food scraps!


If you're looking to have a day at the seaside, then the beautiful fishing town of Cromer has wide beaches, famous crab suppers, a traditional Victorian pier and a 300-year-old lighthouse, and is only 13 miles north east of Jacob's Folly.  Closer to your cosy home is the ruined fortified manor house Baconsthorpe Castle, a Grade I listed building run by English Heritage.  Pop for a cup of tea and a walk in the heritage rose gardens at Mannington Halls, or the 1000-acre National Trust gardens full of azaleas at nearby Sheringham Park.
