Reviewed 7 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Lovely property with a great sea view. Three generations and the dog all loved it even though the weather was not the best it could have been. A very relaxing and enjoyable holiday.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 13 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

There is not much to say about this holiday other than amazing, just so sad that it could not be longer due to its popularity. If you want a relaxing holiday this is the place to go. Over the last few months my husband has been quite poorly and this has been just what the doctor ordered. Thank you Laura for allowing us to have your amazing bungalow. Both my husband and myself plus the two dogs have loved every minute. Thank you thank you thank you.

“A brilliant. place to stay”
Reviewed 26 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This place is brilliant you cant get much closer to the sea without a boat, the property was very clean and on our arrival there was a welcome pack tea coffee ext it was just like being at home.All around the Norfolk coast people are so dog friendly, the owner wished us a good holiday and had booked us good weather but could not promise it,she could not have got it better days very sunny & warm, nights cold but with the heating in property no problems.
We often stay in Norfolk this is one of the best that we have stayed at, our dogs loved the patio & conservatory for sun bathing.
all in all a very nice holiday break and will not hesitate to book again thanks

“Best kept secret in Norfolk”
Reviewed 22 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

I feel that we have just discovered the best kept secret in Norfolk. I stayed with my husband, teenaged daughter & 3 dogs.
Laura has created the perfect place to relax and unwind. Ideal for dogs and children of all ages. The welcome pack was much appreciated, it contained milk, tea, coffee, sugar, bread and Jam and even a lovely bottle of chilled wine in the fridge. Laura had even thought of providing dogs towels and bowls as well.
The wifi worked very well and put up with the strain of a teenage girl running a phone, tablet and laptop all at the same time!!
We found the conservatory was the most peaceful place to relax watching the tide roll in and out.
The Poachers Pocket did a lovely Sunday Lunch and they allowed you to take dogs into the bar area. The Sugar and Spice café did lovely home made cakes and also allowed your four legged friends in.
Come rain or shine Sandcastles is the perfect retreat. As a female I would even feel safe to stay here on my own for a week (with the dogs).
Thank you Laura for sharing your wonderful bungalow...
We will definitely be coming back.

“Heaven on earth!!”
Reviewed 30 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We were a party of 6 travelling together myself, my husband and our 2 boys (13 & 11) gran and Grumpa and 3 dogs (2 labs and a pug!!) to celebrate my parents Golden Wedding Anniversary. What a perfect place we found in Sandcastles ....
Situated right on the beach this perfect holiday home is literally your home from home .... Absolutely everything you could wish for all under one perfect roof.
Laura had even organised roses, a gorgeous cake, wine and a card for my darling parents - how special did they feel!!!
We cannot wait for a return visit and are planning it already ....
None of us wanted to leave ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Thank you Laura .... For everything xx
