Key Features


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!

Please be aware that Isadora is not suitable for pets and unfortunately, Children under 5 years are not permitted.


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.


To the side of the property there is a private patio area which is south facing, meaning it gets the best of the sunlight all day long! Here you will find an outdoor dining table and chairs as well as a pizza oven that can literally cook everything from jacket potatoes to joints of meat!

At the front of the property there are 2 off-road parking bays set on the specially designed resin-bound driveway, complete with an electric charging point if required, please note that there is an additional charge per car for the use of this.

This year we have stayed in both Isadora and Barbarella. These properties are stunning with imaginative, delightful decor, and a very high standard throughout. The dedication of the owner, to make one’s holiday special, is a boundless, with fantastic attention to quality and detail. Enhancing the guest experience are extra touches such a generous welcome basket and fresh flowers in the rooms. The large beds are super comfy, dressed with perfect duvets and fine fresh linens. Inside and out there is everything provided for a perfect stay, most notably an excellent range of kitchen equipment with enough extra glasses etc. for one not to have to be busy washing up after every use! In our extensive experience of holiday homes these are outstanding; we can barely wait to return again. A big thank you, we unreservedly recommend these wonderful properties.
