Get away from it all and relax in secluded countryside surroundings. Grove Stables is a light and airy two-bedroom, self-contained annex attached to the owner's house, nestling in around 3 acres of park-like grounds in East Ruston (10 minutes' drive from the beach). Pheasants, deer, rabbits, squirrels, woodpecker, wagtails, barn owls and many more are frequent visitors to the main garden.There is ample parking and Grove Stables has its own private enclosed garden where you can chill out over a glass of wine while listening to the birds.

Sally and David at 'Let's Holiday in Norfolk' look forward to helping you plan your stay at their family-owned holiday cottage. The setting is rural but Norwich, the Norfolk Broads, sandy beaches and East Ruston Old Vicarage Gardens are all within easy reach by car. If walking is your thing, there are country walks nearby (Weavers' Way), or alternatively the Norfolk Coast Path, not to mention the many public footpaths that crisscross the surrounding fields (larks are often heard singing above the fields). The location is not served by public transport, therefore a car is essential for your trip. Nearest shops are in Stalham (Tesco, Cawdrons Butchers, Post Office), also Boundary Farm (farm produce) at Sea Palling. Visitors will find a comfortable and well equipped holiday home, where they can get away from the hustle and bustle of their daily lives and take a chance to relax. The property is heated by air-source heatpump (no gas is supplied to the property). Local pubs include The Star at Lessingham, The Swan at Ingham and The Lighthouse Inn, Walcott plus Broadland Fish & Chips in Stalham and Oasis 2 (curry) are well worth a try. If you fancy a day out there is much to see and do in Norwich and Cromer, seals at Horsey Gap plus heaps more (check individual websites for opening hours/restrictions due to COVID-19). Please note we do not allow dogs or smoking at the property (this helps our guests who suffer from allergies). Please note the flying of drones or model aircraft at the property is not allowed. Short breaks are not a problem, please contact the owner for more details. More
