Property code: 75392

Traditional brick and flint bungalow in a splendid location on the coastline of one of Norfolk’s best loved beaches and is the perfect base to explore this quiet corner of Norfolk.

Whisk your family away for a traditional bucket and spade holiday with the golden sands of Bacton Beach just over the road from this charming brick and flint cottage. Fill your days with sandcastle building, stick chasing and basking in the sea breeze before returning home to BBQ up a feast or to curl up on the inviting corner sofa. For a trip to remember with family friends, book the adjoining bungalow and gather on the shared patio to plan the day’s adventures.

Fresh, light hues flow throughout creating a tranquil ambience in which to relax after a day at the beach. The lounge/diner leads to the kitchen through an arch so you can keep the chef company whilst relaxing on the large sofa in front of your favourite TV programme. Dine together at the table or step outside and dine alfresco to lap up the last of the sun and tuck into a delicious BBQ. Steps from the rear garden (and a nearby ramp) lead down to the promenade so you can stretch your legs before washing sandy toes in the contemporary bathroom where you can also enjoy a soak in the tub. Resting comes easy at this coastal bolthole where two double bedrooms invite you to drift off and dream amid calming tones.

Head to Bacton Beach for a day in the sand and sea, though if you’re holidaying with your pup during summer months take note of restrictions and enjoy a walk on the Norfolk Coast Path instead. Treat little ones to a trip to Cromer (11 miles) where there’s a traditional seaside theatre at the end of the famous pier and you can indulge in crab fresh from the day’s catch. BeWILDerwood (13 miles) is also a great place to take young guests and is close to the Norfolk Broads so you can spend the afternoon navigating the stunning waterways.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The position couldn't be better with the beach being so near. The cottage is just right for a family of four or less. Nice welcome pack on arrival and Sarah is readily available if required. This has been our second visit and has been as enjoyable as the first. We were again lucky with the weather which always helps.

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?
