Small chalet type cottage. Very comfortable for two people.

  • 5 of 5

Just off the beach at rainbows end. Very quiet and peaceful. Extremely clean, and really well thought out. We had plenty of space for the two of us but it would be cramped for four people as the second bedroom is poor on storage. We walked on the prom each morning before breakfast and hardly saw anyone. Sitting out on the verandah facing the morning sunshine was perfect. We could not have asked for anything more.

Well equipped and nicely decorated chalet. Clean and well maintained.

Great location for families with the lovely sandy beach 2 minutes walk away and a grassy area/ play area opposite. Lots to see and do within 30 minutes drive. (2 National Trust properities, walks around broads, seaside resorts). Bacton village has a good playground about 10 minutes walk away (left off the main road - opposite Beach road junction)

Would recommend this particular chalet without reservation.

The property was very cosy, clean and well maintained.Two small shops, pub and excellant chip shop all in walking distance.

Unfortunatley the weather was not very kind to us so could not make the most of the beautiful beach that is on hand.

A good holiday very relaxing.

Owner's Response: Shame about the weather as we were there from 25th Sat for 4 day and the weather was scorchingly hot and enjoyed lots of swimming in warm sea! Better luck next time and thank for taking the time to send your review.

The property sits on the wonderful North Norfolk coast with miles of beautiful sandy beaches and lots of local woodland walks. There are many historic buildings and gardens to visit and there is a wealth of varied activities for youngsters.

Eating out is generally reasonably priced and the locally caught fish and Cromer crabs are acclaimed throughout the land. There are two pubs within walking distance, each with its own restaurant, and there is a good general store and a fish and chip shop just down the road.

Walcott, the nearest next village has a good post office/ grocery store if you can't find what you want at Bacton general store.

For wildlife enthusiasts this part of the country boasts several nature reserves and seals are a common sight off the beach directly in front of the cottage.

The Norfolk Broads offer an opportunity to take to the water and self-drive boats are available for hire at several places nearby - trips aboard larger boats also run throughout the season.

Tourist Attractions:

Blickling Hall is a magnificent Jacobean house with a garden and park. The Hall is famed for its long gallery, fine tapestries, paintings and rare books. There’s parkland and lakeside walks plus a sunken garden to discover. Reputedly home to the headless ghost of Anne Boleyn.

And finally visit Cromer Museum where you will find a cosy Victorian fisherman’s cottage with a recreation of 19th century life in Cromer. It has a geology gallery of amazing fossils found in Norfolk, childrens’ workshops, natural history walks and Victorian Living History days.The Rock Cafe has lovely scones and great meals overlooking the beach.
