Once an important place of pilgrimage, the ruins of Bromholm Priory are still to be seen in Bacton today. The Priory was built in 1113 AD by William de Glanville and was home to the Cluniacs, the Black Monks who purchased a piece of the True Cross, the Bromholm Roode. Ensuing miracles ensured visits by many thousands of pilgrims including King Henry III. The Priory was mentioned in Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, the Domesday Book, and was the subject of a prediction in Mother Shipton's Almanac.
Today the coastal village opens its doors to the 21st century pilgrims who visit for their holidays. They enjoy the friendly village atmosphere and the sandy beaches, which are often quiet even in the height of summer. There is a good range of local amenities including a pub and shop nearby, a children's playground and a bowling green.
The house, garden, swimming pool and location of the cottage was perfect for our family holiday, plus dog. Nicky was an excellent host, being on-hand should we need anything. We had a super holiday and will be back. Have already recommended Pilgrim's cottages to a friend.
