Its comfortable accommodation with a log fire, about 10 minutes walk down the lane leads to the beautiful stretch of coastline, its perfect for walking! Lots of places to visit within a 30 minute drive. The stairs at Coastguard Cottage are a little steep so anyone with an infirmity may find them challenging.

We enjoyed our stay at Coastguard Cottqge and used Bacton as a base to discover more of the area. The cottage was well equipped without going overboard. As previous reviews have stated, the cottage does not have a shower.

One almost doesn't want to be too positive in the worry that the secret of Bacton will get out! A well-equipped cottage, in a quiet location and just a few minutes from the beach, which, whisper it, is basically your own, even in August. Pub is a few minutes away too and there is a wonderful vegan cafe just up the road. Wonderful.
