About the property

2 bedroom bungalow with large conservatory

This detached bungalow is situated in a quiet close just 200 metres from the sandy beach and sea. There is a large conservatory at the rear of the property where you can sit and enjoy your meal whilst looking out over the south facing garden. The large living room has 2 comfy sofas with satellite TV and a lovely fireplace.

The kitchen is fully equipped to make this property a home from home.

The master bedroom has a king size bed and a triple door wardrobe space, as well as bedside cabinets.

The twin room has 2 single beds and for those extra guests there is a sofa bed in the 2nd living room which sleeps 2. The bungalow also has Wi-Fi included in the rental costs.

The property also has full central heating for those out of season breaks.

Bird watching: North Norfolk and neighbouring Suffolk have several bird watching reserves, with Breydon Water being only 5 miles away. The North Norfolk coast is within easy reach offering 4 miles of tidal foreshore and salt marsh with superb bird life. Brancaster Staithe Nature Reserve, Blakeney Point, Cley marshes, Wells and Hunstanton are just a few of the North Norfolk attractions for bird watchers and tourists alike.

About an hours drive away in Suffolk you will find the bird and nature reserve of Dunwich Heath and Minsmere Beach. This is a National Trust heathland conservation area with good walks and spectacular views.

Norfolk Broads: For a day out with a difference hire a Broads cruiser for a lazy day floating along the famous Norfolk Broads.. There are plenty of riverside pubs to stop for a refreshing lunch before continuing on your relaxing journey. If fishing, bird watching or even wind surfing is your thing, then the Norfolk Broads is the perfect place.

Places of Interest: With the popular seaside town of Great Yarmouth only 5 miles away there are too many attractions to list all of them. One of the closest is Caister Castle, a historic ruin which is home to a fine collection of Classic Cars. The award winning Time and Tide Museum in nearby Great Yarmouth is set in an old smoke house and offers a fascinating insight into Yarmouth’s fishing heritage. The city of Norwich is only 20 miles away, with superb shopping and both the Cathedral and Castle within walking distance of the city centre.

Southwold in Suffolk is a genteel seaside town with many individual shops and jewellers. It is famous for amber jewellery and one of the shops has a small amber museum.

Both in Southwold and elsewhere there are many fine restaurants to try, including a noted sea food restaurant in Great Yarmouth.

Lovely well equipped bungalow

  • 5 of 5

This is a really well equipped home from home in a quiet location. The local beach is only a few short minutes walk away and is OK but a bit gravelly. There are other beautiful beaches within easy reach by car if the local one doesn't satisfy. We had a lovely time visiting all the local attractions. Recommended.

A lovely well equipped,home from home close to the sea.

  • 5 of 5

The bungalow was full of homely features. It was spacious enough for four adults and two small children. There is a wide array of books,DVDs and games to keep all ages happy. The kitchen was also well equipped with all the necessary requirements. Beds were spotless and comfy. Neighbours were really friendly also and gave directions to the sea, which was only a couple of roads away. It's a lovely sandy beach. There are shops locally for essentials. I would recommend this bungalow to others in search of a peaceful retreat. Owner couldn't have been more helpful. Will definitely use again. Thank you for letting us your home.

Another year another nice stay

  • 4 of 5

This is our second stay at this property and as ever an excellent place to stay.

Excellent location for great Yarmouth, excellent for Norwich and great for a new activity we found which was day boat hire which is just up the road.

Everything here that you need and in a nice quiet road.

Nightingale Cottage is situated in a quiet close within 5 minutes walk of the sandy beach and sea.

The seaside town of Great Yarmouth is 5 miles away with numerous attractions including the Pleasure Beach theme park, Sealife Centre and race course.

The city of Norwich is within easy reach, as is Bewilderwood, the adventure park set high up in the trees.

The Norfolk Broads are worth a visit, hire a day boat and relax on the water or take a trip on a river boat.
