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.

Stroll down to the beach to feel the sand between your toes just seconds from this property adjacent to the golden sands of Bacton before heading into the village for a bite to eat. Walkers and cyclists will enjoy the myriad of pathways along the coast including one to Happisburgh, where the oldest human settlement in Northern Europe was discovered, and which is home to a distinctive red-and-white lighthouse offering the perfect picture opportunity. Great Yarmouth, Cromer and Sheringham offer a larger array of traditional seaside fun with piers, amusements and independent shops while the unique landscape and waterways of the Norfolk Broads are a short drive away and can be explored best, by day boat hire.

One of two adjoining bungalows, perfect when booked together for families wishing to holiday together. Guests arriving to this delightful, single-storey property will initially enter the open-plan lounge/diner which provides guests a comfortable place to relax and enjoy after a day on the beach. The comfortable sofa seating is arranged around the TV where guests can catch up on their favourite programmes or enjoy any downtime with a good novel. The dining area provides a perfect spot to enjoy any self-prepared meals and from here a large archway leads into the kitchen. Equipped for all holiday catering needs the kitchen has an electric oven and hob, larder fridge with freezer compartment and microwave, as well as a handy washing machine. From the inner hall guests will find two well-furnished bedrooms, both accommodating double beds and finishing the accommodation is a bathroom with shower over bath and WC.

For those who enjoy relaxing outside with glorious sea breeze, the bungalow has ample garden space which includes garden furniture and a charcoal BBQ for al fresco dining. Access to the beach is via the rear garden with steps leading to a track and further steps leading to the promenade, with steps down to the beach. For guests with limited mobility, there is a ramp to the beach which is approximately 100 metres away. There is off-road parking for two cars.
