My name is Jane and I was born and brought up in lovely Norfolk. I live here with my husband and children, along with a gang of dogs, chickens, guinea pigs, and rabbits. I hope you enjoy this wonderful part of the world as much as we do!
Please get in touch if you would like to enquire about booking a break with Grey Seal Holidays. I am very happy to help with enquiries about the local area and any specific requirements which will make your holiday extra memorable. We welcome dogs and are very family friendly in three of our properties.
Wow! A charming, high quality and very special place to stay. The attention to detail and cleanliness are exceptional. So many little touches that were very much appreciated. Lovely views of Ranworth Broad to the front, and to the Church and Alpacas to the rear; and what a treat the Alpacas are to watch from the hot tub… Our only disappointment was that we did not book more nights! Thank you Jane, so much.
