A former coastguard hut that has been lovingly transformed. Set in the heart of the coastal village of Mundesley, it is the perfect romantic retreat from which to explore the North Norfolk coast. The beach, shops, cafes and pubs are within walking distance.

Wake up to stunning sea views from the king-size bedroom of this beautifully converted former-coastguard’s hut. The tall windows and vaulted ceiling add space and light to this attractive room, whilst a door opens to the Juliet balcony, allowing guests to breathe the fresh sea air whilst enjoying sun downers in the bedroom’s seating area. Downstairs, the open-plan living area has a fresh contemporary feel with a cosy living area and well-equipped kitchen, making this the ideal choice for a relaxing couple’s retreat.

You couldn’t be get any closer to the water’s edge than this bijou cottage, situated right on the beach road in the pretty coastal village of Mundesley. Spend your days at the beach - a wide expanse of sand with a string of prettily coloured beach huts - before returning to the property by way of the pub just next door.

The whole of Norfolk’s northeast coast is accessible from the village of Mundesley, and you are sure to find your own favourite spot whether that be one of the quiet village beaches, or the vibrant seaside town of Cromer, renowned for its delicious crab and pier with traditional theatre. Alternatively, drive 14 miles south for a day on the waterways or footpaths of the picturesque Norfolk Broads.

The location of this cottage is perfect. There is a clear view of the sea from the bedroom and living room windows. Although the cottage is small it feels large and spacious due to the large amount of light thats let in through the windows. I absolutely loved staying here and I will be back.

A superbly located cottage and whist compact has all the essentials for a great stay . The cottage has no parking of its own but the arrangement made with the pub opposite works fine so this was not an issue and for health reasons I normally insist on parking but knowing the location before I booked I took a chance and had no problems

We found the cottage perfectly suited to our needs. Very well equipped with every conceivable appliance you may need. Ample crockery and cutlery if you choose=to use the dishwasher. Excellent bathroom facilities and all of the cottage was warm and cosy when outside was perhaps a little chilly. A lovely comfortable bed.

The conversion of the Coastguard Station to a cottage is a great success. It is very well furnished and fitted out. Most of our holidays are in self-catering premises so we have much experience of this type accommodation. The beer at the Ship Inn was also very good!

Clean, comfortable and well equipped. Great sea views, the beach is steps away, and the pub opposite is friendly with great food. A good base to explore the area. The only minor complaint is that the kitchen is really small, with limited workspace, though it is very well equipped. Would happily recommend.

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?
