A perfect cottage for our family holiday (5 & 2 year olds) It had everything we could have needed and was brilliantly kitted out for kids. Comfy beds, comfy sofa, just great for a fun & relaxing holiday. For us the highlight of the cottage was the sunny kitchen/dining area, loved it! Excellent location too, short walk to the gorgeous beach with itsRead more lovely beach huts, sand dunes, cliffs, rock pools & WWI shipwreck, lots to explore & entertain. And a great beach cafe there too. Hide

Very comfortable and warm with seaside inspired decor. Large bed and all mod cons. Perfectly positioned for a short walk to the beach and a few minutes drive to bird watching areas along the coast.

Our second visit and we could see from the comments book that many guests have returned, some many times. The local Old Hunstanton beach is beautifully quiet in spring, the tide is out during the morning, so many walks can be taken over sandbanks. The house location is very quiet at night, sleeping isn't a problem!
