Our coastline is world famous, with many pretty villages. The tides go a long way out leaving miles of sand. North Norfolk is renowned for its bird life, with many lovely walks and RSPB sites of a very high standard.
The Stables is only two miles from Acle – The Gateway to the Broads - with supermarkets, pharmacy and butchers, weekly market and country auction as well as a pub and several restaurants.

"EXCELLENT - so peaceful and friendly."
Ceri confirmed my booking by return email, then confirmed deposit/balance receipt by return email too. Fantastic clean, comfortable and welcoming conversion of Stables. Lovely welcome pack. Ideal property, beautifully maintained, spacious and all the comforts required. Wonderfully peaceful and secluded, yet only a very short drive to Acle where everything needed is available. Ceri and husband (John) are a lovely couple who will help with anything possible when asked - but not intrude on your vacation. We took a medium sized, well behaved dog - who also had a great holiday. We will be back. Thanks.
