Our home

Our home, Ashdene House is a lovely Victorian house, built as a hotel in 1880 and now run by us on a bed & breakfast basis. See the website. We live on the ground floor in the self contained private part of the building which consists of a double en suite bedroom, sitting room, computer corner (with internet access) a small conservatory separate toilet, commercial style kitchen, utility room and reception. There are five en suite guest rooms on the first floor and a comfortable guest lounge and dining room to seat 12 on the ground floor. We have a delightful garden divided into private and guest areas, a car park and garage /workshop.

Who we are

  1. Martin and I have been married for 30 years and have only recently left our jobs to run a bed and breakfast. I am a registered nurse and Martin used to be technical coordinator for a college of higher education. We enjoy our new adventure and have now redecorated the house, re planned the gardens and are working hard to improve the business. Martin has an ancient Land Rover to play with in his spare time and I can often be found pottering in the garden.
    Two of our sons and our grandchildren have emigrated to Auckland, hence our desire to visit NZ. This will be our first Home exchange.

Your neighbourhood

We are ideally situated as a base for country walks and seaside activities. We are situated in Dersingham village centre on the borders of the Royal Sandringham estate where the Royal Family spend Christmas. We are a short drive from the beautiful North Norfolk coastline, historic Kings Lynn and the RSPB nature reserves of Titchwell and Snettisham. We live in the centre of a rural Norfolk village, opposite the recreation ground. There are 2 public houses, a fish and chip shop and chinese takeaway in walking distance and further afield are many lovely restaurants and pubs. There are 2 small supermarkets in the village. We are 7 miles from the traditional seaside resort of Hunstanton. Cambridge is approx 50 miles away and the beautiful city of Ely is about 35 miles.
Regular trains run to London from Kings Lynn and take an average of 90 mins.
