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 local beaches).

Pheasants, deer, hares, 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 and patio where you can chill out over a glass of wine while listening to the birds. Visitors are welcome to walk around the large main garden.
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 local sandy beaches, Norwich, the Norfolk Broads and East Ruston Old Vicarage Garden are all within easy reach by car. Country walks are easily accessible - right from the front gate. Nearest shops are in Stalham (3 miles away).

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). East Ruston Old Vicarage Garden is only minutes away by car (30 acres of beautiful gardens, plant sales and tea room).
Nearest shops - Stalham (Tesco, Cawdrons Butchers, Post Office), also A G Meale Farm Shop.
Local pubs - The Star at Lessingham, The Swan at Ingham and The Lighthouse Inn, Walcott
Broadland Fish & Chips in Stalham, Oasis 2 (curry) are well worth a try.
Cafe Charlotte in Stalham - great coffee, cakes and light meals.

If you fancy a day out there is much to see and do in Norwich and Cromer, see the seals at Horsey Gap, North Norfolk Railway - Sheringham to Holt and Bure Valley Railway - Wroxham to Aylsham, explore the Norfolk Broads - hire day boats from Stalham, Hickling, Potter Heigham, Wroxham or go on a guided Broads tour from Wroxham or Horning. Sandy beaches are only 2-3 miles away.

The owners live in the main house attached to Grove Stables, so are on hand to meet and greet/check-out plus answer any questions you may have during your stay.

Our other property 'Larksong' is located just a few minutes' walk from the beach at Eccles-on-Sea. Please see our website for more details.

Short breaks are not a problem, please contact the owner for more details - minimum booking 4 nights.
Flexible arrival and departure day.

Please note:
We do not allow pets or smoking at the property (this helps our guests who suffer from allergies).

The location is not served by public transport, therefore a car is essential for your trip.

Really nice cottage

By Les Scotty on 17-Sep-2023

Really nice cottage, very quiet area & peaceful surroundings. The beds were comfy & everything you needed was there. The Wi-Fi was adequate for what we needed. We found some fantastic places to eat in the local area namely Vera’s cafe do a lovely breakfast & the Wayford Bridge Inn do well cooked & reasonably priced evening meals both places about 1 to 2 miles away. Sally was an excellent host, leaving a nice welcome pack for us when we arrived. If you are looking for a quiet country retreat this will fit your requirements, very close to the Norfolk Broads. We would love to come back in the future.

A great place to stay
