Villa in Cromer, North Norfolk, England - Lovely Location, Next To Lighthouse With Lovely Views All Around, 10 Minutes Walk From Town & Beach
About diana surridge
We are a semi-retired couple living in North Norfolk. We love the area and we never get to do all the things we intend or visit the places up and down the coast and there is always more to look forward to another time. We have a multitude of attractions around us and the Villa all within an hours drive from Hunstanton to the north to Great Yarmouth to the south. And ofthe course the wonderful Broads The North Norfolk coast is one of the most beautiful in England. The city of Norwich is called 'A Fine City' and this is very true with many attractions and one could easily spend a day there.
diana surridge purchased this Villa in 2012
Why diana surridge chose Cromer
We were attracted by the use of all the leisure and health club facilities of the Cromer Country Club which is very well maintained. The Amber restaurant and Bar on site is a great place to spend time with entertainment inform of quizzes etc most eveings. It is a 5 star Diamond Resort and we are one of just 20 'private villas'. We are particularly pleased that even during the winter we can offer the advantages of the indoor swimming pool and leisure facilities.
What makes this Villa unique
Almost everything which we enjoy for a break ourselves is available in Cromer. Golf - three great clubs closeby, Royal Cromer next door, Mundesley and Sheringham within 10 minutes, reading, relaxing, swimming and all in UK! The Farmers markets, great local eating houses and pubs. Glorious scenery, coastal walks, boat trips, seal watching, shopping and coffee in Holt, a beautiful Georgian town. The North Norfolk Steam railway and Bure Valley Narrow gauge railway. National Trust Houses of Blickling Hall and Felbrigg. Fishing villages of Blakeney, Wells-next-the-Sea, Brancaster and you can reach all of these on the Coast Hopper bus (especially if you have a bus pass!)

Everything was as described plus it was warm and cozy
We were three generations, aged 5 months to 79 and the two bedrooms and two bathrooms were ideal for our needs. Full cooker, kettle, toaster and microwave (useful for baby’s bottle), lots of pots and pans, cupboard space for our groceries, comfy beds and sofas. Would highly recommend
Thank you for your lovely review and we are so pleased you enjoyed our villa so much! We do get some nice comments and we hope you may become one of our many regulars !

Good facilities and great staff in the bar. Would recommend. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay.
So pleased you enjoyed it so much. You’re welcome to come again!
Good site with pool and gym etc. The site needs to come into the 21st century and accept that no-one charges for basic WiFi any more - certainly not a ridiculous seven quid a day.
The 20 minute walk along the cliffs into Cromer was enjoyable. Property itself well maintained; compact kitchen, lots of outdoor space.
Thank you for giving our villa at Cromer 5 stars and Excellent, pleased you enjoyed it. Actually we sympathise about the wi-if, but it is provided by the Country Club to cover the whole complex so we do not have control over charges. We do advise it is chargeable in our listings. We will pass your comments on to them, and since we are able to ensure that you get full use of the pool and other on site facilities free of charge who knows one day we may be able to persuade them that WiFi should be free too.
The many and varied attractions of North Norfolk are priceless though. We hope you will visit again.
Our villa was well appointed
Our villa was well appointed and we were able to provide our own evening meals without any difficulty. The location for trips out along the North Norfolk Coast was excellent. The Wi FI billing seems excessive by modern day standards .
On the downside,:- Both Dining Room & Lounge Rugs still showed remnants of the previous occupier. The Ground floor bathroom had been swept but the dirt left in a corner. Apart from these minor issues, it was clean and well maintained with ample hot water and heating.
On a more serious note, nowhere of the site information sheets does it mention the complex is built on a steep hillside, with steep steps leading throughout the complex. One of our party has walking difficulties, so the site wasn't really suitible for him.
Overall we enjoyed our stay.
Thank you for your review William and for pointing out a couple of cleaning issues, we will pass these on to the Housekeepers so they are aware as this is unusual. Regarding the steps and hilly site, we do point this out in all our promotional material, we will review this and make sure it is sufficiently prominent in future. The Wi-Fi ,sadly, is not under our control as it is provided across the site by Cromer Country Club, who do charge as we mention. There is also good 4G mobile coverage too. But it is good to know you enjoyed the week overall and thank you for the 4 star rating.
Cromer Country Club
Despite the foggy weather we had a lovely family stay over Easter. There is plenty to do at the Country Club itself and the accommodation was really spacious.
Really pleased you enjoyed the villa, club and area. And you did have terrible weather which is unusual on our coast!!!
Thank you for writing such nice things in our visitors book too!
We hope to see you again one day!
We felt comfortable the minute we walked in.
Attractive, clean and comfortable accommodation in an excellent situation. South-facing terrace with good tree-top view. Wonderful cliff-top walk into Cromer, which is a lovely little town with plenty of interest to see and good independent cafes and shops. Good hiking area.
Thank you for your lovely review. We are delighted you enjoyed our villa, the town and the area. We hope you can come back again sometime! Diana and George
