Crafter’s Retreat is a wonderful wood cabin nestled amongst the trees in the pretty village of Upwell. Relax, unwind, and get back to nature in this glorious holiday home for two.

Set within a private, completely non-overlooked, ¼-acre plot which boasts a Woodlet and Victorian knot garden, this gorgeous cabin is the romantic rural retreat you have been looking for. Bask in the sunshine throughout the day before enjoying a dip in the hot tub in the evenings. Dine al fresco on the covered wooden terrace or enjoy a cosy night in reading or watching a film.

Its creative owners offer 1-2-1 pottery and woodturning experiences in their studios just a brief walk away from the cabin (discounted rates for guests booking the cabin) and have provided an easel and beautiful backdrop to get your creative juices flowing.

This lovely holiday home is perfectly placed to enjoy all the local area has to offer. The nearby rivers are a hive of activity with canoe and kayak hire as well as excellent fishing spots. Downham Market is a short distance away and has direct links to Ely and Cambridge so you can be enjoying a tour of the Cathedral or the Universities of Cambridge in no time. The glorious Norfolk coast is within easy driving distance where you can be chasing the waves at Heacham beach or indulging in a seaside favourite, Fish and Chips!

Beautiful, peaceful, tranquil grounds. Loved the birds and the butterflies. Very thoughtfully furnished cabin. Hot tub was lovely and much needed in the heat!

Amanda and G,

We’d been walking the North Norfolk Coast path & needed a place to relax and recuperate for a few days. The Crafter’s Retreat had everything we needed for a few days chill out – especially the hot tub & peaceful gardens. Loved our stay!

Ruth and I,

Beautiful little getaway. Every little detail was thought of

Past Customer,

Very relaxing place to be and unwind. Very central to lots of lovely places to visit. Going from Cromer round to Skegness and to Thetford and across to the broads. Hot tub was lovely and relaxing.

Sue & B,

“Really lovely place to spend our honeymoon! The extra touches were a lovely surprise! The hot tub has been wonderful, especially at night with the fairy lights" ….

Theresa and P,

A little hidden gem in the world of hot tub holidays. Private, peaceful & relaxing. Will definitely return. Highly recommend the Moorings for a meal out. Really enjoyed our break. Thank you :)

Very lovely environment and we were delighted with the cabin and all the little well thought out items around the place. On arrival, we felt the welcome straight away - so thank you for such a relaxing and blessed break!" Thanks :-)

We had a great weekend at Crafters. The lodge is the perfect place to relax. Nice and private and very quiet.

Previous Customer,

What a lovely log cabin, everything was just perfect, couldn’t ask for anything else. Magic, peaceful. We even heard the birds as well

mr M S,

Perfect place to chill out. Very peaceful, quiet and cosy. Would definitely make a return. Enjoy your stay!

Gee & B,

Just got back from a 2-night break at Crafter's Retreat. What a perfect place to relax and unwind. Loved the hydrotherapy hot spa. Also loved eating out on the veranda, overlooking the gardens and listening to the birds. We even heard an owl! There was such gorgeous attention to detail throughout the cabin. The stained glass window is beautiful. Can't wait to book again. Would highly recommend as a perfect place to relax.

Past Customer,

"Lovely weekend escape: trips to Ely, Cambridge and Blakeney Point to see hundreds of seals! The cabin is fab and very relaxing. Loved the hot tub and cosy bed! Hopefully we’ll be back
