I purchased the Whim in 2009. It had already been run as a successful holiday home rental business. It has undergone a period of refurbishment under my ownership, with the final work scheduled for 2013/4

The Whim occupies a fantastic position on top of the cliffs overlooking the North sea and Mundesley. There is a path down to the sea just at the end of the road. Mundesley beach is fabulous. It is clean, large and thankfully almost undiscovered by the masses.
