Bacton is an excellent location for a seaside holiday, with a sandy beach, excellent for summer days on the sands or long walks in winter. There is a good range of local amenities including a dog friendly pub, shop, a children's playground, a local swimming pool for hire and bowling green. A traditional fish & chip shop and licensed cafés. Bacton Wood is perfect for a day out with nature whether you are on foot or cycle with three walking trails to choose from. There is plenty to discover in the area - to the north find Cromer and its iconic Pier with year-round shows, golf in Mundesley and tennis in North Walsham and to the south, find the famously striped Happisburgh lighthouse and the local seal colony at Horsey Beach; visit over the winter and you will see seal pups too. Inland, The Broads National Park with 125 miles of waterways to discover is within easy reach and the hinterland in this part of Norfolk also makes great cycling country. Culture vultures will enjoy a trip to Norwich, which is also within easy reach.


Our favourite part of this holiday was the beach and seeing the seals! It is a very well-equipped house where we made some lovely memories with our 3 grandchildren. It was great to have everyone together for a memorable family holiday. Thank you!

Mrs Denise L,

We had so much fun at the beach (beautiful sand and we saw some seals) and also playing in the garden. This is a lovely holiday house - we all enjoyed our stay and hope to come back soon.

Murphy Family,

We had an absolutely wonderful stay. Definitely not ready to go back home! You have thought of absolutely everything, so many personal touches. 'Old Cottage' is stunning, a truly magnificent place for all 15 of us! The décor is stylish yet homely with the most amazing garden/outdoor area which we made use of every day. BBQ's, badminton, family football and hot tub time! The location is perfect with a short walk to the beach. Thank you for sharing your beautiful house... truly luxurious!"

Adams Family,

We've had an excellent stay at your beautiful home, with everything you could want and more. The beach bar was fab and this is where lot's of memories were made! The hot tub was also a hit with our holiday and we thoroughly enjoyed playing & relaxing in it. We have really enjoyed our stay and are very sad to leave.

Johnson's & M,

Great stay in a lovely house and setting. Beautiful beach and two local café's well worth trying!

Lockstone Family,

Very special for us to get together this Summer in such a lovely house and garden in such a great location. We were really able to make ourselves at home and enjoyed trips to the beach as well as visiting the Shire Horse sanctuary, a local National Trust property and a couple of rounds of golf! Our favourite parts of the stay were sports activities in the garden, the hot tub, the bar, building sandcastles and seal spotting on the beach. Made some great family memories.

Previous Customer,

Great house and garden, with everything catered for, nothing missed. 5 minute walk down a pretty lane to the beach. Quiet location and made a great break for us all.

Miss P,

We weren't familiar with Bacton, but Old Cottage is in a perfect location for exploring the north Norfolk coast. It is beautifully appointed, newly decorated, with the extra garden buildings (accommodation and bar) plus the fantastic hot tub.. and literally minutes walk from the stunning sandy beach. We were able to visit Cromer easily, and headed up to Holcombe/Wells/Holt too. A stunning, relatively undiscovered, area with miles of beaches for families, dogs, swimming, seal watching etc! We will definitely revisit. Thank you to the thoughtful owners for sharing their property and providing the venue for our birthday get-together!

Mrs R,
