West Runton is an appealing seaside village nestled into the north Norfolk coastal landscape. It offers a family friendly beach with crabbing and fossil hunting and there is a pub, grocers, station, two cafes, Rocky Bottom - the local fish restaurant, a gym, golf and swimming all to be found within half a mile of the cottage's front door. To the east discover the resort of Cromer with its famous Pier and cliff top walks and further along this stretch of the coast are numerous flat, sandy beaches that are often not over populated even in the summer. Head west and discover the open marshes at Stiffkey and Cley-next-the-Sea and seaside villages such as Blakeney and Wells-next-the-Sea, each with their own unique character. With great pubs, delis, smokehouses, farm shops and eateries there are plenty of places that showcase the produce that Norfolk is justifiably famous for such as crabs, mussels, cheeses, wines and more. The area is rich in history too with Felbrigg Hall and Blickling Hall both run by the National Trust and Holkham Hall, the seat of the Earl of Leicester, which is still an independent family-run estate all nearby. This is a wonderful part of the county and a holiday here will bring back many happy memories for years to come.


This was an excellent venue for a half-term break with our kids. We would happily come back again.

Dr G,

Everything was great about this property and its location. All amenities were in great condition and the cottage had a lovely feel to it. Just a short walk from the cottage are fantastic places to eat including the Tearooms over the road, the french Pepperpot restaurant, and the Rocky Bottoms fish restaurant. Great beach is also a short walk. I cannot fault this place.

Dr T,

The best holiday cottage we have ever stopped in! Spotlessly clean and so well equipped. The welcome pack was amazing! Conveniently located for the bus stop and local shops. The owner was lovely too. We will be back.

Miss T,

A lovely well-equipped property in a beautiful area. We enjoyed every minute of our fortnight spent at Happy Daze and will hopefully be back soon!

Mrs W,

Very well equipped, everything we needed. Very clean, fresh and comfortable.

Mrs T,

We had a lovely holiday at Happy Daze, the cottage was very comfortable and had everything you could possibly need. It is also very well situated to many loca, towns and attractions. Would love to come back here in the future.

Miss S,

Lovely few days in your beautiful cottage - very cosy. Enjoyed a great boat trip to see the seals at Blakeney Point and took in the amazing NYD fireworks at Cromer pier. Had a lovely meal at The Kings Head Letheringsett. Look forward to coming back soon.

Mr Jim D,

We have loved staying here! A fabulous cottage with absolutely everything you could need. It has been lovely to get away as a family after the last few months, and we have felt comfortable and cosy here. The location is fantastic and we have found plenty to keep us busy. Our children (5&8) have enjoyed West Runton beach, Cromer for the amusement arcades and crazy golf, Holkham Hall adventure playground and raspberry picking at Wiveton Hall. We have Wells beach and a seal trip booked for our last day! Book seal trips a few days in advance as we struggled to get a slot, they book up fast! We booked with Temples. We've had great meals at The Village Inn (recommend the crab and also the seafood platter) and Rocky Bottoms (surf and turf burger and garlic lobster, amazing!) No.1 Cromer does great fish and chips, and we had a fantastic breakfast and great coffee at The Owl Tea Rooms in Holt (lovely garden area to eat in) Thank you for a brilliant holiday in perfect surroundings.

Mrs Anna B,

Had a much needed break. Good facilities at Happy Daze. Walked to Sheringham via the coast. Visited Felbrigg Hall, Sandringham and Sheringham Park - saw the steam chug past! The pub The Village In opposite is great for a post walk pint and the they serve food in 'basket'. Decent cafes in Holt to sit in. We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.

Past Customer,

One of the best holiday cottages that we've stayed in! Excellently equipped, very comfortable, and well placed for this lovely part of Norfolk. A real home from home. The weather this week has just been brilliant. Enjoying some lovely coastal walks, West Runton - Overstrand & Weybourne - Cley-next-the-Sea (loads of shingle!) Holkham Hall is well worth a visit (make time for the fantastic beach!) Thank you very much for the welcoming touches!

Mr Robert H,

Wonderful accommodation, very cosy and welcoming. A very relaxing break, much needed after the last couple of months. Gentle strolls to the beach and a few hours in Cromer was enough for us to recharge. Very Happy Daze indeed!

Past Customer,

A lovely few days spent in accommodation, which is very pleasantly decorated and comfortable. A credit to its owner. Felt very welcomed by all the little touches left for our arrival. All in all a well equipped and cosy little getaway.

Past Customer,

Lovely cottage and well equipped. Great days in Norwich exploring the city and surrounding areas. Local shop was great for food and a chat.

Mr Miles S,

Lovely cottage, very comfortable and well equipped. The beach just down the road is nice, we booked the seal trip with Beans Boats another fab trip. Holkham Hall is worth a visit, so much to do, even if you just want to walk around the lake and take bikes, you only need to pay parking. Thank you for a great stay.

Mr Mark P,

Me and my Mum found the cottage very well equipped and very comfortable. You sink into those settees! We had lovely weather, so easy to walk to the beach, excellent as the car park was closed as it was full!! Have already recommended Happy Daze to others - Lovely cottage! Thank you!

Miss Emma C,

Very cosy and well equipped cottage with a homely feel. Loved the shower! A perfect base for exploring the local area. We'll definitely come again!

Mr Sid N,
