With an abundance of days out nearby and located on one of Norfolk’s best loved beaches, this stylish property offers a family or small group of friends the ideal base in which to explore the stunning Norfolk coast and countryside.

Set yourself up with a stylish getaway at this chic property in the village of Bacton. Sleeping four people over two bedrooms, it’s the ideal accommodation option for romantic couples, small families or groups of friends. Spend your days wandering along Happisburgh Beach or exploring the incredible gardens at East Ruston Old Vicarage, and your evenings catching up with loved ones around the cottage’s roaring wood burner.

Kick off your day with a coffee in the garden to the front of the property. It’s the perfect place to plan the day ahead. After a great day visiting the c seals at Blakeney National Nature Reserve or strolling past the colourful beach huts on Mundesley Seafront, come home and cook up a feast for your loved ones in the stylish kitchen. Serve up a meal to remember at the dinner table in the funky living/dining area before slipping onto a sofa to catch up on your favourite TV shows. Alternatively, head out to the pretty garden and crack open a bottle of something fizzy. When the day is done, head upstairs to the first floor and you’ll find two double bedrooms, each with their own feature fireplace.

Go for a stroll along the lovely, long sandy beach at Happisburgh (3 miles). You can’t miss the village’s striking lighthouse with its distinctive red and white stripes. Head to Morston Quay (26 miles) and hop on a ferry to Blakeney Point to see the grey seals. The reserve itself is a fantastically-spacious landscape with salt marshes, sand dunes and horizons that stretch far out to sea. Alternatively, enjoy a little retail therapy at Wroxham Barns (11 miles), where foodies will be delighted with the range of local produce on offer.

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.

House was very tastefully decorated although we had serious issues with the creakiness of the master bed to the point we had to sleep on the sofa so I hope that gets fixed.

The most northerly county in the East of England, Norfolk is a land of beautiful contrasts. From the swooning reed beds and endless maze of waterways in the Norfolk Broads; the unspoilt stretches of fens and shingle spits where bird and wildlife thrive; a famous royal palace and the historic cathedral city of Norwich, this enticing area of England is just waiting to be discovered. Visit Sandringham Palace and see where the Queen lives or find out where lavender grows; you could journey to one of the largest seal haul outs in Europe at Blakeney Point or have a traditional day at the seaside at Cromer and Great Yarmouth. The cathedral gilded city of Norwich is a wonderful place to lose yourself either walking the ramparts of Norwich Castle or the RAF Air Defence Radar Museum. The city has an exceptional array of shops, cafes and restaurants to enjoy. Well connected to the national rail and road network, Norfolk is easily accessible from London, the M25 and from major city terminals.

Norfolk is characterised by its horizons and big skies, straight highways and rural trappings. Also, when it comes to attractions, visitors to the county will be spoilt for choice. If you love animals and birds, head to RSPB Titchwell Marsh, or the Cley-Next-The-Sea. With such a long coastline Norfolk boasts some magnificent stretches of beach – favourites include Cromer, Old Hunstanton, Wells-Next-The Sea, the dunes of Winterton-on-Sea, and Brancaster (a favourite for dog owners).

There are so many places to visit and activities to get involved in on a Norfolk holiday. We have some lovely properties including country cottages, farm conversions, large family houses, apartments and surburban home from homes in our collection. Why not find your perfect holiday home today?
