Description

Ladybird (sleeps 2)

Ladybird is newly created and provides studio accommodation in a peaceful rural location with stunning garden views. It is designed for 2 although there is room for a cot/toddler bed. The living/sleeping area is dual aspect which makes it light and sunny. It has French doors leading to the large grassed garden space and a paved area with table and chairs under the ivy clad pergola. In the sleeping area is a comfortable king size bed and the television has been placed so that it may be seen when sitting in the armchairs or when relaxing on the bed. We have created a separate compact stylish kitchen with sink, fridge, table and chairs and a microwave. A mini cooker can be provided on request. The adjoining shower room has been cleverly built to make maximum use of space and has a double size shower.

About Diane Le Grice

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.

Diane Le Grice purchased this apartment in 1970

Why Diane Le Grice chose Norfolk & The Broads

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Wonderful, relaxing holiday in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We were not disappointed. Big Sky was as beautiful as it looks on the website. Immaculate and well equipped. Diane was very welcoming and especially enjoyed homemade brownies. Although it was only the two of us staying, it would also make a fabulous family holiday. Lovely walk to village and amazing beach. Have already recommended to friends and will definitely return for another visit. Thank you Diane.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay in Big Sky, although it is great for a family the mezzanine sleeping gallery with balcony overlooking the surrounding fields and marshes makes it a very special retreat for two. We look forward to seeing you again. Diane

Peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely few days at Ladybird, beautiful property and location. So quiet, the peace was beautiful. Parked up and spent whole time on foot (2x2 sore ones!...we went miles!), Dunes cafe was brilliant, the Seals at Winterton were amazing, miles of beach, Horsey and Marsham!, the local pub.....just all beautiful, I would love more of it all! The property itself is bright and airy and has gorgeous tea towels from the nursery school it once was, just such a lovely feel all round!

Next door to Robins Nest which looked lovely too, but we loved Ladybird being on the end of the property. Big Sky too, only downside really was their TV noise, but only on here and there.

Ladybird was/is beautiful, what a wonderful place to live or visit.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed Ladybird. This setting is certainly the place to stay if you want to park the car and walk the local footpaths and coastline. You must come back in Autumn when the grey seals arrive for the breeding season and give birth to their young. I have seen as many as 500/600 on the beach at Horsey. Thanks Ellie for the 5/5!
