“Return visit”
Reviewed 30 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Second visit to this cottage for long weekend at end of Oct/beginning Nov. Very lucky with weather - again. On the beach in t-shirts! Cottage as welcoming, warm and well equipped. Had a great weekend relaxing, walking, eating & drinking.

“Well equipped, lovely views and very relaxing!”

We stayed at Beachcomber Cottage in the middle of September and the only thing I can fault was the weather which was rather foggy for the last few days of our week's stay!

You are provided with a clear set of directions when you book and the cottage was easy to find. Parking for our two small cars was fine, although two larger vehicles may struggle to fit off road.

Upon arriving the property appears well looked after, and the welcome pack consisting of wine, biscuits and tea/coffee was a nice touch, as was the personalised welcome note. Once settled, the owner Val visited, giving us lots of hints and tips about the surrounding area.

Inside the property is very well equipped with a kitchen containing every utensil we needed and more, plus a good selection of crockery and glassware. It was nice to find cloths and washing up liquid provided, one less thing to take next time! The kitchen (at the front of the property) is really bright and airy and lovely with the large patio doors open. There is a table and 4 chairs on the patio which is very sheltered.
from the kitchen you walk down the hallway with its lovely painted floorboards and find three good-sized bedrooms and the family bathroom.

Bedroom one has a king sized bed and en-suite shower room. Bedroom 2 is another double, bright and airy with a large skylight window, and a small loo and wash basin. Bedroom three is a twin room - the plug sockets are down the sides of the beds, it took a while to locate these. We did find the master and twin bedrooms a little on the dull side as the windows were very small. A nice touch was the locally made soap provided in all bathrooms.

The family bathroom is beautiful! Amazing bath and lovely pebble effect tiling make it almost spa-like; the only downside was the lack of a second shower - with 4 adults this would have been useful, or a shower attachment on the bath. However we managed perfectly well during our week long stay.

At the end of the hallway, past the bedrooms, a couple of steps take you up into the fabulous lounge. The double height room has the most amazing view over the garden and to the sea beyond. There was plenty of seating and the bonus of the mezzanine floor with two sofas and small TV. The overall feel of this room was light and bright, really relaxing with lovely shabby-chic furniture and an electric "log fire" for those chilly evenings.

Outside the garden was well kept, with plenty of seating again.

We enjoyed the 5 minute walk to the beach, but be warned as the walk back up the slope to the road is a little on the steep side! The ice cream man was very friendly and we ate at the cafe - great food and welcoming.

In the village we ate at The White Horse - the food was amazing; we spent £50 per head for 3 courses with wine although main courses varied from around the £10 mark. The village shop is well stocked too.

A trip to Holt is recommended, especially if you have time to browse, and we took the train from Cromer to Norwich for around £9 pp return. The fish and chip shop on Station Street was great, and Cromer itself offers a morning's worth of wandering. We used Morrison's in Cromer for our supplies - its easy to find situated next to the station.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend the cottage.

Reviewed 5 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We had a wonderful relaxing time at Beachcomber cottage, a lovely welcome with wine tea and biscites and flowers.Just like home from home Everything you need to cook and relax..
Overstrand and Mundersly where our favourite places but now we also like a wild part of Bacton as wel.l Can't wait to come back when we think the weather will as good as the five days we had.
Well done Val

“LOVED IT; LOVED IT; LOVED IT”
Reviewed 30 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We enjoyed a lovely four night break in September 2014. We booked quite late and sadly the cottage wasn't available for any longer otherwise we would definitely have extended. The cottage is superbly located, being within walking distance of the beach. Val, the owner, has thought of everything. The cottage is very well furnished and the kitchen is fully equipped. Very comfortable beds and plenty of hot water for shower/bath. We hope to return soon and would definitely recommend. Thanks Val for letting us use your lovely cottage.

“Stylish accommodation in a great spot”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

A well thought-out and stylishly converted bungalow now provides a spacious, airy and comfortable home from home, beautifully presented with nice touches and everything you need in a quiet spot close to the local beach, perfect for getting our two whippets out for a good walk and run (although there is a summer-time dog ban on the beach immediately below the short promenade, subject to the tide times you can walk for miles to Cromer and beyond in one direction and towards Mundesley in the other). Overstrand is a pleasantly sleepy place with a couple of pubs and cafés serving food and a local shop, and check out the crab and lobster shack above the promenade. We've already booked two more weeks next year - enough said!
