There is a famous pier where the World Pier Crabbing Championships take place in August and the Cromer End of Pier Show takes place. The beaches are beautiful and there are plenty of watersports available. Close by are the beautiful natural beaches of Blakeney, Wells-Next-the-Sea and Cley. Sherringham is only a few miles away with the gorgeous Poppy Line Railway with its steam trains running up to Holt and back.

Tern House is a 3-bedroom terraced house within 5 minutes’ walk of the beach and town centre. It is centrally located within a few minutes of all amenities including the train station and supermarket. At the top of the road are lovely walks across the heath all the way to East Runton and this is a very dog friendly area.

About The Owner

Tern House is our family holiday home. We have worked hard to make it somewhere comfortable to stay while we explore the Norfolk Coast and enjoy family days on the lovely beaches with our two children and Charlie the dog. This is our first adventure in the holiday let business so we hope you enjoy staying here as much as we do.

Great property with everything you could possibly need.

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely. Comfortable and warm, with everything you need. Alison was very helpful and we loved the wine and biscuits, thank you! 😁 Everything was spotlessly clean and we would return if we were in that area again. Would certainly recommend. We had bad weather, unfortunately, and the forecast was dire, so we headed home early, which made it a very short stay...., but that was nobody’s fault!! The house is like a Tardis - just so much bigger than expected. There’s even a lovely little sitting out spot in the garden, if the weather permits!!!!

Especially well cared spacious and beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

This place is so well cared of, all things thought off and beautifully equipped. We felt really at home. We enjoyed the atmosphere, relaxed and had a wonderful time. The area is so peaceful and still you are very close to the beach and the city center. The host is very friendly! Thank you for all your help and generosity! We would love to come back to your charming house.

Very spacious and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The house easily accommodated 7 of us plus a dog as it is very spacious. The beds were comfortable and house was clean. In a great location 5 minutes walk into the centre and beach. The back garden was nicer than appeared on the website photos and we enjoyed a BBQ there. The wine and biscuits on arrival was a nice touch.

The kitchen was not so well equipped for serving dishes etc and a few more finishing touches including extra pictures and mirrors on the wall to make it feel a bit more homely would have added another star to our review. A wardrobe/hanging space for clothes in 2 of the bedrooms would have been helpful.

A hidden gem.

  • 5 of 5

The photos of this property don't do it justice. It's a lovely, large house with everything you need for a perfect week away from home. Super comfy beds, a few toys for the younger children and home comforts for a dog if you take one with you. We had a fantastic break here over the new year. The firework display down in Cromer was amazing. Close enough to Norwich and Great Yarmouth to visit. The hippodrome in Great Yarmouth was a real find. Fantastic Christmas show. Parking could be a problem but we managed to get a spot outside Tern House every evening. Morrisons is literally over the road, very convenient. Lots of lovely pubs to visit and so many other things to keep the whole family entertained. Only one thing missing according to my eldest children and that is wifi.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your comments. It's lovely to hear that people enjoy it as much as we do. I apologise for the lack of wifi. It is something that we hope to address shortly. I hope that it didn't spoil the break for your family and hope to welcome you back in the future. Kind regards Alison
