An attractive Victorian property offering spacious and stylish three-storey accommodation for six guests, situated in the seaside village of Overstrand, just a stone’s throw from the beach.

The Swallows is a beautiful Victorian property that comfortably sleeps six with sea views from two of the bedrooms. The rooms are large and bright and have been stylishly decorated by the owners. The house is particularly suited to families, especially those with young children, there's a garden where kids can run around and cosy seating for watching films at the end of a busy day.

The cottage is located in the popular coastal village of Overstrand just a short drive from Cromer. The house is up from a sandy beach that's located at one end of the road. If you time it right, you might be able to watch the local fishermen bring in the day's catch. At the top of the road is a pub, local shop and post office – the perfect setting for your Norfolk holiday!

Head to Cromer, only 3 miles away from the village, for a day out and make sure you wander down to the end of the pier for what's believed to be the UK's last end-of-pier show. While here you also must taste the Cromer crab, a local delicacy. Cromer is home to a golf course and Amazona Zoo and just outside town, 5 miles from the property, is Felbrigg Hall & Gardens.


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

The Swallows is a particularly spacious, comfortable, well equipped holiday cottage in a peaceful location. It has plenty of 'extras' such as games and beach equipment for use.

A characterful and comfortable cottage which is very well equipped and has a great range of children's toys and games. Well situated close to the beach( though a steep walk down ).

Reviewed by Margaret 5th July 2019

Ideally situated for a young family. Close to the beach, with a small beach cafe at one end of the road and an excellent child friendly and dog friendly pub at the other. Small enclosed garden which makes the property safe for both children and pets.

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?
