When I visited Thorpeness I'd not done any homework before visiting to see "House in the Clouds". I thought there were amazing facilities for such a small place -- Golf Club, Country Club, boating on the Meare.

When I looked it up I found out why -- it had been developed from a small fishing village as a fantasy holiday village .
