Holmes House, East Ruston

"Another perfect week in sunny Norfolk. Booked for next time before we left. If we can’t live here at Holmes House we’ll just have to visit as much as possible. Thanks to Caz and Sue for the lovely stay, we have 3 very tired doggies and we feel so relaxed. If I could score this holiday
it would be 19/10!"


"What an amazing holiday!  We loved our quiet idyllic dream home away from home, the dogs and cats absolutely love it here.  Had wonderful weather, beach trips, owls, boating, seeing the seals, eating in the Ingham Swan and plenty of time chilling out in front of the fire. 
Thank you Caz and Sue, see you again next year!"
