Eden Hall Cottage | Norfolk


Eden Hall Cottage offers a relaxing and luxurious getaway on the Norfolk coast.

Uncovered by Vicky White, the founder of Plum & Ashby, while exploring ‘Hidden Norfolk’, Eden Hall Cottage has been a labour of love, restored to create a calm and relaxing home from home.

From the handcrafted Longford kitchen, made by Humphrey Munson, to the huge, freestanding, cast iron baths and unique, individually sourced furniture, this spacious cottage abounds character, luxury and the personal touch.

The self-catering cottage sleeps up to ten people and is perfectly positioned just a short five-minute walk from the beach. It’s an ideal location for visiting the broads, National Trust properties, ancient woodlands, hidden beaches and award-winning pub, the Gunton Arms.

We caught up with Vicky to find out more about the design of Eden Hall Cottage…

How would you describe your interior design style?

I’m not sure I have a particular style but I like to keep things quite simple and pared back. I like to create a relaxing, lived-in look that’s inviting.

I’m drawn to neutral colour palettes but add in a pop of colour through art and textiles.

What influenced the design of the project the most? 

The cottage was built in the 18th century and has a lot of history and original features. In other words, it has really ‘good bones’. I just wanted to renovate the house in a way that enhanced the character. We have exposed flint walls, renovated lots of beams and kept the wonky floorboards.

Maintaining the mix of old and new, I’ve reupholstered antique armchairs in vintage linen and paired with industrial style lighting.

I’ve tried to keep the colour palette quite neutral and similar through the house to create a positive flow.

What’s your idea of a perfect weekend at Eden Hall Cottage?

We’ve spent most of our weekends this summer at the cottage.

The cottage is 5 minutes walk to the beach, so our weekends always involve a few walks, a swim (if it’s warm enough) and some seal spotting!

Our favourite pub is the Gunton Arms. It’s set in a Deer park and has the most amazing Sunday lunch. It is the perfect place to sit in front of the fire, have a glass of wine and relax.

For lunch, we love the café at Wiveton. It’s open through the summer and has wonderful views of the salt marshes. We are a short drive from Holt, which has lots of antique shops and little boutiques. Also Byfords serves a lovely cream tea!
