About Diane Le Grice
The White House has been my family home since 1979. Big Sky, Martin’s Nest and Ladybird, collectively known as Big Sky Cottages, were created when I retired in 2013. Prior to that date the premises were a successful Nursery School which I ran for 29 years. On retiring I decided to convert the Nursery School adjacent to my house into three 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, cycling to isolated sandy beaches in summer and walking in winter 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 guests might need to ensure they have the best possible time while staying at Big Sky Cottages.

Why Diane Le Grice chose West Somerton
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 10/15 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 cycle 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 Cottage unique
Big Sky Cottages overlook a SSSI where many native and migratory birds can be seen - ideal for bird watchers and walkers. Although a rural setting with lots of country walks from the door, being near the sea is very special. Early morning walks along a deserted stretch of sandy coastline, hearing the sea in the quiet of the evening and at night, seeing the stars shine so brightly, these are special moments I hope my guests will enjoy too.
