There are lots of cottages in the coastal villages owned by Holiday Lettings companies and private individuals. Some remain in families and some are still occupied with fishing families and local land workers.

Where are good locations for Norfolk Holiday Cottages?

There are many amazing locations along the North Norfolk coast, but we love Mundesley. In fact, we loved it so much that we brought a Mundesley so much we bought a holiday home to share with others and to enjoy ourselves with our growing family.

Mundesley is a wonderful quaint and pretty Victorian seaside village. It is within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with many long coastal walks and beautiful stretches of sandy beaches. Our holiday apartment is perfectly situated just 2 minutes walk from the beach. It has a lovely large patio and shrub area, private parking and is within walking distance of the local pubs and restaurants.


So, if you are considering a holiday in the Norfolk area and you are looking for a great place to call home then we have two properties you can choose from our Norfolk Barn Stay and the Mundesley Coastal Retreat, contact Lucinda and Bim today to find out more
