We loved our stay at Seashells. The cottage was just what I had envisaged. It is perfect for people with dogs or couples who want a bit of peace and quiet. It was beautifully decorated with a seaside theme and had all the equipment we wanted.

We had a fab week at Seashells. The views of the sea from the sofa and bedroom are sensational, and the property is wrapped round with lovely views on all sides. A short walk to the dog friendly beach, beautiful sand and large empty spaces. We visited the Lighthouse pub a few times for food. Great food and prices and very dog friendly. BeautifullyRead more quiet and relaxing. Hide

Stated electric log effect fire but just central heating. Excellent location, outlook to sea or fields at almost every outlook. Ideal location for walks and beaches. Was disappointed that there was no baking trays to use in the oven when it is a self catering cottage. Overall cleanliness not too bad but oven was quite grimy and also drawers in bedrRead moreoom were not very clean, the left hand side bedside cabinet looked like crumbs in and the drawer with hairdryer had all loose hairs in. Generally a very comfy and compact property but the pipe from the bath leaked into conservatory , so mop and bucket required frequently. Because of location and Seaview expected to pay a higher price but felt it was lacking a few pieces of equipment or features. We book with holiday cottages.com regularly which I believe you are amalgamating with, and have generally been happy with service. The only clause we don't like is that both cottages booked with original cottages is that we have had to pay a non refundable damage fee. We are a 56 and 66 year old couple who aren't going to be wrecking properties. Whereas with holiday cottages this is optional. The above re the cottage are not criticisms and we had a fantastic week but we did leave comments in the guest book too. Hide

Property in lovely situation, warm and clean. Lovely view. Needs a bit of tic though, Bathroom needs a fixed mirror, really difficult to see in tiny shaving mirror. No towel rail just hook on back of door. Mirror in bedroom not located anywhere near a power point, impossible to see to dry/style hair. No hooks to hang wet outdoor coats. ConseRead morervatory in poor condition, roof patched badly, windowsill fixed with sticky tape. Smoke alarm fixed with sticky tape? does it work properly in this condition. Bathroom door lock fixed sticky tape, table top in conservatory held on with sticky tape. Gutter fixed sticky tape. It is a real pity that the owner seems to be so penny pinching when it comes to maintaining this property as it could be lovely. Kitchen and bathroom flooring not stuck down around edges and thresholds, could be a real trip hazard. Bathroom hot tap leaks all the time and really difficult to turn off fully. Overall if mirror situation was rectified and repairs done not just taped, floor glued down, this would be excellent but could not recommend. Hide

What a wonderful location for a relaxing holiday - the road to the cottage stops there, so there is no through traffic, just a few ramblers and dog walkers passing. Cottage itself has wonderful sea views, both from the front, and also from the conservatory at the back of the property, and is about five minutes walk away from the sea. The propeRead morerty was fully stocked with everything we needed, be sure check the cupboards in the living room and the utility room for lots of games, jigsaws, books and DVDs. The house book has several circular walks listed, varying in distance. The bed was firm and very comfortable to sleep in.. There is a general store & post office combined on the sea front, about 10 minutes walk away, and an excellent chip shop (Kingfisher) a little further on. Nearest supermarket is Sainsbury's in North Walsham, which is about a 15 minute drive away. Two pubs within walking distance - The Lighthouse and, our favourite, the Poacher's Pocket, a sea-front dog-friendly pub with plenty of outside seating, both about 15 minutes walk, or a 5 minute drive. As an added bonus, there are deer which graze on the grass in front of the property in the early hours of the morning, some nights we had bats flying around the cottage at dusk, and my wife saw a seal swimming in the sea - there are also many different species of birds to be seen in the garden and the grass in front of the property. Would recommend this to anyone as an excellent holiday location. Hide
