Sidestrand is a small village to the east of the popular coastal resort of Cromer and is perfectly located for a holiday at the coast. Venture into neighbouring Overstrand for a super day at the beach, and with a cliff top cafe within walking distance you won't have far to go for your ice creams or a spot of lunch. For an evening meal there is The White Horse pub in Overstrand serving locally sourced food and drink. For a more traditional visit to the seaside make your way along the cliff path into Cromer and admire the stunning scenery as you go.  Cromer is a popular Victorian town with a wealth of local history, shops and amenities including golf course and tennis courts.  For keen walkers there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy a stroll in the countryside or the North Norfolk Coastal Path which runs from Hunstanton to Great Yarmouth.

Beautiful barn, everything we needed, well equipped and very comfortable. Thoroughly enjoyed our two whole days, shame the current situation meant we had to leave early on Monday.

Another well satisfied three generation party accommodated by your beautiful barn - thank you! Everything we needed - beautiful sitting room and magical secret door that the children loved!

So long Makers Barn.
