Kevin and Alison met late in life and now live in rural Norfolk with a bunch of older kids, 2 dogs and a cat. They were lucky to acquire some land out back behind their garden and spent a couple of years developing a plan for some holiday lodges, to provide a means for them to live off the land together. In September 2020 Planning Consent was finally obtained for 4 luxury eco holiday lodges and natural swimming pond, giving the project the degree of certainty that yes, it is going to happen!
We formed a company called Idyll Country Ltd that will build and run a luxury holiday spa lodge development that we plan to complete in 2022. We propose to develop a hidden, under-used and awkward plot behind a quiet little industrial estate, providing a living and local employment, working with local business, art and the wider community. It will be a Destination in its own right, bringing premium tourism to the gateway of Norfolk and Suffolk and attracting international eco-tourism. We will be working with others to develop, inform and demonstrate the future built environment for the good of all.
Kevin - A lifelong Design Engineer and passionate innovator, he has designed the entire site with help from our architect Dr Harrall. He is very hands-on, with a great eye for detail.
Alison - A full career in teaching has cumulated as Headmistress at a school for special needs. She has a degree in Art and Master in Textile Design, and her favourite pastime is painting. In due course we hope to hold art inspired weekends and events.
