Where it all began…

Emma (the owner of Barefoot Norfolk Ltd) purchased The Railway in December 2020 from The Hoste, along with local developer Harvey Butler. For those that do not know, Emma was Managing Director at The Hoste for 25 years, with the late Paul Whittome and therefore knew The Railway incredibly well. Emma departed The Hoste approximately 10 years ago and from this Barefoot Retreats was born. Over the years, Barefoot Retreats has been paving the way for luxury self catering cottages in North Norfolk and now having The Railway under the same brand is really rather special! 

The Railway has been completely renovated and transformed including every bedroom, bathroom, the communal lounge and the garden too – nowhere has been left untouched!

  • Luxury 5* white linens
