“Coffee Cake and Eggs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

The best hideaway in Wymondham. Nothing beats coming to the Hen House/Egg Shed for a cup of your favourite brew, a cake or other sweet delight. The setting is superb as it is in the grounds of Cavick Hall. It is quite unique and very charming. When you are done you can then get your free range eggs to take home. There are jams, bread and lots of other treats to be had as well. Last year we paid a visit almost every week such is the draw, and all this is just a stones throw from the Abbey and Mid Norfolk Railway. If you are planning to come to Wymondham then go and pay a visit to the Hen House/Egg Shed. You wont be disappointed.

“Unique and Marvelous.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

I'm so happy the end shed is on trip advisor, I can't praise this little place enough! The egg shed, is just that - a shed with fresh eggs for purchase, next to this is a beautiful unmanned open shed with freshly baked, cakes and cookies, hot drinks and occasional other little treats. There are a couple of benches and seats and is especially lovely to sit at during the summer. Due to this being on a farm it's ideal to come for some peace and quiet and a perfect example of Norfolk countryside. - I almost don't want it to become too popular and busy!

“Eggcellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

So unique. Great little find. Really want to keep this place to myself.
Self service little shed, set in lovely gardens, decorated with bunting.
Outdoor seating. A true gem.
