Myself, my wife and daughter (16) stayed in this beautifully presented 2 bed bungalow for 10 nights in August. It comes with just about everything and anything you could need for a comfortable stay (it's all detailed in the folder so read that first). The bungalow is situated on a private park so is very quiet, ideal for relaxing on the patio with a BBQ.
Weybourne is a small village but has a good local shop and the Ship Inn is just 250m from the bungalow (take a torch at night and cut through the graveyard!). Nice pub, good food (booking advised), great beers and an extensive gin list plus a lovely beer garden. Dogs are welcome. The beach here is a short drive but we used West Runton on the way to Cromer which has more facilities and lifeguards (car parking £3 for the day). Weybourne is an ideal base to explore the north Norfolk coast with Sheringham 5 mins away (has a Tesco) and Cromer within 15 mins. Plenty of restaurants to choose from, the Dormy Hotel in West Runton does a good Sunday carvery but you have to book and we'd recommend Dave's Fish & Chip restaurant in Sheringham for sheer value for money. The kitchen at the bungalow is fully equipped and there's a BBQ if you want to stay home.
Further afield, Norwich is 30 miles (intu Chapelfield is best for retail therapy) and Hunstanton the same distance (come back along the coast road and take in Wells next the Sea and the other small towns and villages). Cromer has the pier and a cinema for wet days. We preferred Sheringham which seems to have a lot more to offer and good beaches too.
We have been to Norfolk many times before but always find new things to see and do. The roads and beaches are very quiet compared to Devon and Cornwall but with the right weather there's not much difference (it's cheaper too). We will be back to stay here again, maybe a long weekend out of season and then a longer stay in years to come.
Jane, the owner, is fantastic. We had a few changes before and during our stay and she was more than helpful. While we had no problems while we were there we knew that Jane was always available if we needed her. Cannot praise her enough and she (and the bungalow) sets a high standard for other owners.
We had a great stay at Manor House Barn. It's our second time there and we love it. The space works perfectly for us. My children are 3, 7 and 10 and the barn gives them enough room to play in all day even if it rains. That said we often went out to the beautiful local beaches or crabbing in Blakeney. We also visited several attractions, gardens etc.. which we loved.
