East Runton lies on the A149 coast road between the resorts of Sheringham and Cromer. A steepish lane leads down to the beach where at low tide there is a wide expanse of flat sand perfect for sandcastles or ball games. The beach is backed by high cliffs and there are paths into Cromer or the neighbouring village of West Runton. Away from the coast is a cluster of traditional brick and flint cottages, and an attractive green and duck pond. The village is well placed for exploring the area but if you wish to remain closer to home there are several small shops, two pubs and a restaurant serving meals.

A wonderful bungalow, a real home from home. Been to East Runton lots of times but still enjoy. Lovely weather helped to make this a really great holiday. The walk on Monday was lovely about 3 miles, not bad for us golden oldies.Anne, Hugh, Shirley, Allan - 12th October 2018

This is a wonderful property located in the nicest part of this seaside village. The owners were very friendly and helpful, without being intrusive, and the accommodation was of an excellent standard. My old mum, who is becoming quite infirm, loved it and found it very easy to move around. Ms Anita Lord - 18th July 2018
We have had a enjoyable week and have visited many interesting places in our first time in Norfolk. Your bungalow is really lovely and very comfortable - we could not wish for better, thank you and our best wishes for the future.The Lloyd Party - 13th July 2018

Excellent cleanliness, equipment & lovely comfy beds. We will certainly return when we holiday in Norfolk again.Elizabeth, Ken & Robert - 6th July 2018
We've had a brilliant holiday. After 40 years of self catering in this country The Orchard is the best equipped and cleanest we have ever stayed in. A comfy bed, clean cooker plus a defrosted fridge were welcome and The Orchard well deserves its awards. Thank you and all the best for your wild garden - fork the nettles out! David and Bernie - 29th June 2018
5th visit to this beautiful bungalow in beautiful Norfolk. Thank you for 5 memorable stays. Keep up the good work. The Button Party - 4th May 2018
Fabulous throughout.. from welcome, to cleanliness, to warmth, to space, ......has everything needed. Is in good position for North Norfolk Coast......could sing it’s praises all day!!Mrs P Irvine - 29th April 2018
Booking the bungalow through the website was very straightforward and secure. All the details about the property were accurate and comprehensive. The bungalow was spacious, and beautifully fitted out with good quality furniture, furnishings and equipment. The kitchen had everything you could need with ample pots, pans, cutlery and appliances. Even dishwasher and laundry tablets were provided. The bungalow lacked for nothing and had its own private garden, complete with garden furniture. The location was very quiet yet convenient for public transport to Cromer, Sheringham and other towns and villages. The owners were on hand should anything be needed but they did not intrude and were very hospitable. All in all, we would definitely recommend The Orchard at East Runton for a comfortable and relaxing holiday.Mrs Irene Bramwell - 22nd April 2018
