Lovely cottage in a perfect location. The accommodation is clean and comfortable, with everything you need for an enjoyable stay. A welcome pack on arrival is an added bonus. Plenty of good restaurants within easy reach. A short walk to the beach, where we saw amazing views of the sunset. Would definitely recommend this property.

A lovely, comfortable holiday cottage. Everything was clean with all the items you need for a good stay. The small patio with seating would be nice in warmer weather. The location is really good for local amenities - a stone's throw from Caley Hotel- literally across the road. We had a good meal there. Not much further and the Lodge Hotel is also gRead moreood for food and drinks. Highly recommend the Old Town beach cafe - the food, location and ambiance is excellent. The beach in is wonderful.

We had a lovely week and were very comfortable and happy staying at Sleepy Gull. An added bonus was being close to the bus stop for the Coastliner bus between Wells-next-the-Sea and Fakenham

Homely modern cottage, and convenient position. Spotlessly clean and well equipped. Full Sky TV a welcome bonus, as was nice welcome pack. Our second visit, and our family have visited as well. When next in the area hope to return again.

Warm and welcoming holiday home. Great location for the beach, eating out and buses up and down the coast. Hunstanton has it all, from busy seaside to quiet areas such as Old Hunstanton.

A very convenient location for the north coast wildlife areas, while being within a few minutes of the shops in Hunstanton by car. House is comfortable and warm with all the usual facilities. Everything works well, except the very low flow/pressure in the bathroom washbasin hot tap. We have been coming to Sleepy Gull for years and it has never beenRead more fixed despite reporting it regularly, as have others. Can this be sorted out, please? Hide
