Isadora – Luxury self catering holiday cottage


SLEEPS 4 From £563 per 3 nights, £712 per week

Introducing the flamboyant and whimsical Isadora and her flowers! Here you will find a true collaboration between artists and artisans that has resulted in a wonderful and bespoke home, celebrating the very best of British craft.

Complete with two bedrooms, a super king and king bed that feature handmade, luxurious mattresses with natural fillings, one of which is en suite, the other being serviced by a luxurious family shower room. Outside, you have the use of a private courtyard with a pizza oven, with space adjacent for off-road parking for 2 cars. Located just four miles up the road from popular Brancaster, you’ll be conveniently placed for a short drive down to the beach!

The story of Isadora was created by the homeowner who then collaborated with a renowned artist to bring her and her story to life in the form of this wonderful and bespoke home! Isadora is a whimsical character, a young girl from London who has never had a garden before, comes to visit Norfolk and falls in love with the flowers and the countryside! Isadora is also the name of a famous dancer renowned for dancing barefoot, which the owner has used in recognition of when Barefoot Retreats started their business and initially used this courtyard for their premises!

This property is full of artisan staging and vivid colours and truly showcases specialist hand crafting by renowned local artists, from the felt chair covers and layered upholstery, right down to the button design drawer handles. In addition to this, many of the pieces of furniture are bespoke, having been designed and made by their own in-house team.

*Please note that this property does not allow children under the years of 5.

*No Pets Allowed in any of our properties.
