The Best Beach Hut in Norfolk

At the start of this week I went on a brief trip to the coast of Norfolk. Whilst walking along the prom I came across the sweetest beach hut, possibly ever. The lady who owned it and her friend were clearing away their supper and bottles of wine whilst their children played outside when I stopped to ask whether I could take photos.

The owner was pleased and said that her beach hut was recently featured in the local newspaper. She also said that her house is decorated in the same manner and that 'House and Garden' recently photographed that as well. I can see why. It's like a real-life page of a Cath Kidston catalogue.. only way better...

I loved the vast collection of enamel cups hanging on tiny hooks on the walls and her fantastic use of space. I also liked the assortment of the best packaged and most British of British groceries standing on shelves around the hut; you can just about see the Hp sauce and Heinz beans, but there were also jars of marmite (of course) Lee and Perrins, Camp Coffee essence, etc, etc.

I quite want to gut my parents shed and do something like this with it!
