    “We really liked the property, having the beach just a stone's throw away was fantastic, and we had a lovely New Year's walk on the beach!”

    The general cleanliness was very good, although there were some minor issues with not so obvious items, like cobwebs round light fittings, the fire extinguisher in kitchen and sweet wrappers found under sofa bed, also, the additional mattress (nice touch) for the sofa bed is in need of replacement. At the time of year we visited it would also have been nice to have walked into a warm accommodation, but unfortunately all the radiators were turned off and the house was very cold upon ...

    The general cleanliness was very good, although there were some minor issues with not so obvious items, like cobwebs round light fittings, the fire extinguisher in kitchen and sweet wrappers found under sofa bed, also, the additional mattress (nice touch) for the sofa bed is in need of replacement. At the time of year we visited it would also have been nice to have walked into a warm accommodation, but unfortunately all the radiators were turned off and the house was very cold upon arrival. The only other niggle would be the some indication of the condition of the roads approaching the house wouldn't go amiss. I haven't got a low slung vehicle, so it wasn't an issue, but there were some very large potholes, full of water, when we arrived, which could have been problematic to lower vehicles. Having said all that - don't let it detract from what is a good, quirky property, in a great location.

    Hi. Many thanks for your feedback. I am pleased to hear you enjoyed the home and the area it is a fabulous place to go on vacation. Unfortunately I can't control the weather conditions that have a varied effect on the off beat track/Road that accesses the home. I don't own the road but do contribute to the maintenance of it and this is carried out on a regular basis, but certain weather conditions can quickly effect it. However it is alway passable by car and by foot it is sometimes more bumpy that others, this is the pay off for having the home in such a rural but unique location by the sea. The home was cleaned throughout and we always strive to leave it in as good as possible condition for our guests. Kind regards Property Owner

About the location

ECCLES-ON-SEA

North Walsham 6 miles; Cromer 14 miles; Norwich 18 miles.

Eccles-on-Sea is a small, quiet unspoiled coastal village on the east Norfolk coast, nestled between Happisburgh and Sea Palling. The beach at Eccles is sandy, with the sea one of the cleanest in Britain, and this spot is ideal for walking the dog as it has no summer restrictions. The village of Happisburgh is 2 miles away, with its red and white candy-striped lighthouse, and Sea Palling, 1.8 miles away, has many facilities, including a Jet Ski centre. The Norfolk Broads are also close by, with Hickling just a few miles away being the largest broadland village, complete with a National Nature Reserve. East Ruston Gardens, 1.5 miles from Eccles-on-Sea, is a must for gardeners, with 18 acres of stunning gardens. The fine city of Norwich is 18 miles away, offering a beautiful Norman cathedral and castle, along with many good shops and restaurants.
