This is a lovely little cottage and we had a really enjoyable stay here. The welcome pack was also gratefully received. Thank you!The Hawkins family - 10th August 2018
Apart from one cold day - glorious sunshine all week. Got used to the stairs after a while, even as pensioners they were fine. Parking space a bit too small for our estate, but no problem on the road. Good access to beach and dunes, dog loved it, up at 5am everyday. Caister as an area was very quiet, it was the week before the kids started holidays, but plenty to do and visit.Sheila and Tony Goss - 13th July 2018
