Shangri-la Waxham Eco friendly holiday home at night

The perfect antidote to the stress of everyday life....a Norfolk beach paradise

If you were going to create your very own Shangri-La, you could choose no finer UK location than Waxham to do it. Waxham is an enchanting hamlet in East Norfolk. Its beautifully unspoilt beach is frequently mentioned as one of the country's finest. The Norfolk Broads are also within ridiculously easy reach, making this the ideal location for exploring the wildlife-strewn best of this unique region.

Shangri La is a magical place. The house is fabulous - so light and airy and so well equipped. We all loved watching the wildlife through the huge windows, and the box of goodies on arrival was great.
The location is amazing: within 2 mins you're walking on the sandy beach, one way to see the seals and the other to Sea Palling, just miles of golden sand. This is somewhere once discovered you will want to return again and again.

Solitude, surrounded by nature

A visit to Shangri-la is about stepping out of everyday life to somewhere quite different, a small slice of heaven.

After a chance reading of an article in the Observer newspaper we decided to take a chance and book a December weekend in a shed by the beach in Norfolk.... It could have been awful.... but it was fabulous! From the moment we stepped through the welcoming yellow front door we were hooked and that was before we found the hamper, the seals and the Ingham Swan. The location must be magical in summer but watching the weak winter sun rising over the fields and then later the storm bending the trees while we remained snug and quiet indoors was memorable indeed.

Experiences and life long memories

I had heard seals in the night. In the frosty cold, the dark northern sky scattered with stars, I slid open glass doors onto the verandah of our holiday home, built in the lee of dunes. There was the thud of waves on the beach and a strange howling. In the morning we discovered the source: 70 seals on the beach just the other side of the dunes. But the spectacle of thousands of the beasts is two miles further south, perhaps the most accessible seal colony in the country.

The perfect holiday home, in the perfect place

The holiday home is a stylish re-imagining of the traditional wood-built coastal chalet. The one acre of wooded and lush gardens provide opportunities to play and relax. The three-bedroom Shangri-La was designed by award-winning Mole Architects to maximise its stunning surroundings. You can also be assured that your holiday is eco friendly - Shangri-la was built to PassivHaus standards, the most demanding energy efficiency standard. Imagine the luxury of a 5-star hotel, with one of Norfolk's best beaches as the backdrop - the ultimate upgrade to a standard holiday cottage. The large open plan living, dining and kitchen area is the perfect place for bringing people together, either families or groups of friends. We are dog friendly and more than happy to welcome your well behaved dogs.

If you're looking for a holiday home that takes the concept of the beach hut to the max, Shangri-La, a stunning waterfront wooden house on Norfolk's unspoilt north-east coast, needs to be on your 'rent it now' list.
Modern in design, with mid-century-style touches and more than a nod to the Scandinavian aesthetic, this ecofriendly haven is spacious and welcoming, flooded with light from the floor-to-ceiling windows. Interiors are cool and calm, featuring washed plywood, oak flooring and a muted palette offset with bright pops of colour.
