With wood burners in the lounge and kitchen, and an enclosed garden for al fresco dining, this spacious and comfortable bungalow makes a great holiday destination at any time of the year. Located in Holme-next-the-Sea among beautiful scenery, sand dunes and beaches, it’s an ideal choice for couples or small families.

This semi-detached property feels like a home from home, and has a choice of comfortable rooms in which to relax and recharge. The light-filled lounge has beautiful leather sofas, a Smart TV, DVD and CD, while in the conservatory/dining room, there’s further seating and a Smart TV, as well as an air conditioning unit in case of very warm weather. The large kitchen, meanwhile, has all the equipment you’ll need for stress-free cooking, plus a breakfast bar for two people to chat with the cook or even assist. The two smartly designed bedrooms are a king-size (twin on request) with a TV, and a double. And you have the choice of both a bathroom and a shower room. The house is set in its own large, private and fully enclosed garden, which has a generous lawn and a patio with a BBQ and dining furniture – perfect for delicious meals in the fresh air.

The pretty village of Holme, located within the North Norfolk Heritage Coast and a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is a great base for exploring this part of the Norfolk coastline. Holme Dunes and the Titchwell Nature Reserve are on your doorstep, and it’s the meeting point of the Peddars Way and the Norfolk Coast Path. Follow the coast path 3 miles west to the charming Victorian resort of Hunstanton, or take a trip to Burnham Market, 11 miles, and enjoy its array of independent and specialist shops.

It was a lovely property but things seem tired. The fridge freezer was very noisy and the fridge didnt seem cold enough. No bin bags left and we struggled to fit our rubbish in the black bin. Cobwebs around the headboard in the smaller room.

Gorgeous property, beautifully decorated and well equipped. Weve stayed twice now and already have a booking to return in July. We love the location, nearby walks and the local farm shop is absolutely fantastic. The cozy living room was decorated for Christmas which was much appreciated.

The property is elegantly furnished and was always comfortably warm with plenty of hot water. The garden is spacious, fenced and therefore ideal for dogs. The garden room with its glass roof was particularly impressive. We even saw migrating pink-footed geese! Location is very good with only a short drive to the nearest beach.

The cottage was under-resourced. Small bath towels ( had to buy large ones), no replacement bin bags ( had to buy) no RinseAid that seemed needed by dishwasher which did not appear to have recommended 7 as a setting....hand washed everything. The second bathroom so distant from bedrooms was awkward and not in a good position directly off lounge.

On the whole everything was perfect only downside we could not walk from the property due to no path therefore had to use the car every time. Couldnt just walk the dogs, road too dangerous.

Property was extremely comfortable and wonderfully warm. Perfect. Only negative is the road. It is the busy A149 without pavement so rather scary to negotiate particularly with a dog.
