Big Sky, is perfect for families. It sleeps 4 + people in flexible accommodation. It is a light, airy, open plan property containing a mezzanine sleeping gallery with balcony. At ground level are two built in adult size bunk beds, a spacious living/ dining area, wet room and garden room ( with day bed ) leading to an enclosed decked terrace. Martin's Nest and Ladybird provide well equipped studio accommodation - just right for 2. The tranquil location is ideal for walking, bird watching, fishing and sailing on the Norfolk Broads or just lazing on the nearby quiet, sandy beaches of Winterton, a safe 15 min walk using the bridle path adjacent to the garden. Gt. Yarmouth, the medieval city of Norwich, NT properties and many tourist attractions are only a short drive away. Our aim is to help you rest and relax under the big skies of Norfolk and we will prepare a tea tray ready for your arrival to welcome you. Our properties have flooring suitable for dogs and we welcome well behaved pets in Big Sky and Martin's Nest. Big Sky has a gated decked terrace leading to the shared large enclosed grassed garden area - ideal for guests with a pet or young child.
The White House has been my family home since 1979. Since retiring from nursery education I decided to convert the wash house and annexe adjacent to the house into unique holiday homes in order that others might enjoy the birds, wildlife, peace and tranquility of the Norfolk countryside and nearby unspoilt beaches. My family are grown up now, but still can't wait to get back to East Somerton and revisit familiar haunts, especially winter walks to see the seals on Horsey beach, with a pub lunch to follow. I manage the lettings myself and take pride in what we have to offer. I love to welcome visitors to this area of Norfolk and am happy to provide any help or information you might need to ensure you have the best possible time while you are here.

We love the peace and tranquility of the Norfolk countryside and it's coast. Here we have the best of both worlds. The house and adjoining holiday cottages are set amongst fields, yet the village of Winterton-on-Sea with it's well known dog friendly pub, beach cafe, P.O, fish and chip shop and wide sandy beach is only a ten minute walk along the bridle path that runs beside the garden. As a family we enjoy the fact that the beach, bird-watching, walks and cycling trails are on our doorstep. Although our home and holiday cottages are situated in an idyllic rural location, Norwich, National Trust properties, The Broads, tourist attractions and countless pretty Norfolk villages are easily reached by car.
The adjacent holiday cottages overlook a SSSI where many native and migratory birds can be seen - ideal for bird watchers and walkers. All have their own entrance and outside terrace as well as access to the large shared garden. Martin's Nest and Ladybird both sleep 2 and offer brilliantly designed studio accommodation all on one level. Big Sky sleeps 4 + and is light, airy and spacious. The large open plan area has comfortable dining/seating for 6. Two bunk beds, a garden room with day bed and a mezzanine sleeping gallery with queen size double bed offer flexible accommodation to suit a family or a group of friends. All properties are stylish and comfortable. There is ample room for parking and secure bicycle storage. A small child's ready bed, a travel cot and high chair are available free on request and a welcome tray is provided for guests on arrival.

3rd Visit to Martin's Nest / Big Sky and still as wonderful as ever.
Lovely , luxurious , and relaxing in gorgeous surroundings.
Diane is a lovely warm and welcoming host , the little extras such as
Books and toys for the children make all the difference.
We don't ever want to leave , but will be back for our 4th visit soon.
we have had the most amazing time at Martins Nest. The weather was an added bonus which allowed us to spend some time relaxing in the lovely garden. Diane was so lovely and helpful. Great walks for the dog and lovely pubs for meals.Will certainly be back next year
This was just what we needed - a lovely break in the countryside with plenty of walks as well as a 15 minute walk (down a bridle path) to the beach ..... ideal for us all.
Martin's Nest has everything you would need; a home from home but a lot more relaxing. We didn't want for anything - thank you Diane!
A perfect place to get away and explore. Cottage is very comfortable and well equipped. The outside area is fantastic, perfect for children and dogs.
The location is lovely, on the edge of a small village with just a stones throw to the beach.
Would definitely recommend and will definitely return.
