Lovely place

I stayed here for a very peaceful week in July. Everything was perfect. I arrived at Wymondham station to be met by Jane who very kindly took me to buy some groceries at the supermarket. Then we went on to the hut, which is down a 5-minute pathway into the woods. It's simple and comfortable, next to a pond where wildlife abounds in the form of birds and butterflies. There are also some great walks in the local area. Jane very kindly dropped me back at the station at the end. There I discovered the wonderful cafe serving very good cakes, which I've heard it said are popular with Buddhists.
