Apartment | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Brunswick House has been a cherished holiday retreat for our family for the last 20 years. We are carrying out extensive renovations over May to June 2012 to make it available for the first time for holiday rentals in July 2012.
The ground floor and lower ground floors are available to be rented. The ground floor consists of a living room in the bay window on the left of the house with the kitchen behind. The master bedroom is in the bay window on the right of the building with en-suite bathroom to the rear. Downstairs in the lower ground floor, there are two further en-suite bedrooms.
Although the house can sleep up to 10, we strongly recommend that there are a maximum of 6 adults. For more than 6 people, the beds are fold down Z beds.
We can configure the master bedrooms as just a double or we can add 1 or 2 Z-beds
Lower ground bedrooms can be configured as king size double, twin, triple, quadruple or double with twin or single.
Range Cooker, Large fridge freezer and dishwasher
Washing machine and tumble drier.
Gas central heating.
Full games cupboard!
IMPORTANT: The house does have a quirky layout whereby there is shared access to the two privately owned apartments above, through the centre of the house between the master bedroom and the kitchen. This has never been a problem for us but please see the plans in the photo gallery if you are concerned.

The streets of Cromer today are little removed from how they looked in the Victorian era. Most of the great landmarks, many of which were created by the well-to-do Victorian "summer timers", still stand as familiar to the holiday makers of today as they were to their counterparts a hundred years ago.
Cromer does however have a much more ancient history than that, the magnificent church is a medieval legacy, a relic from the days when Cromer was still known as Shipden - a modest settlement of fishermen and merchants.
A small, almost impoverished town, Cromer was "discovered" in the 18th Century by well to do travellers as a watering place. Cromer began to grow, slowly at first due to its remoteness, but upon the arrival of the railway in 1877, linking Cromer with London and later the Midlands, development gathered pace. The Victorian travel writer Clement Scott coined the name "Poppyland" for the area, wrote about it in the national papers, and the people came, both to visit and to live. Land was released from Cromer Hall and estate developers began building hotels and residential areas.
By the 1890s Cromer was fashionable and booming. Many fine residences were built and the Urban District Council saw that the infrastructure - drainage, roads, schools, electricity and so on - was the best. In 1900 a new pier were erected and the promenade, first built sixty-five years before, was lengthened and enhanced. The suburban development of the 20th century, particularly of the post-war period has seen the town expand in every direction.
The Town's reputation for crab fishing is undiminished. You can still watch the crab boats arrive every morning with their catch. There are several small fish shops in town where you can buy one of the day's catch and virtually every eating place will have a crab dish on the menu.
For over two hundred years the town's lifeboats have helped those in trouble off the open north-east Norfolk coast. Hauling up the sails and pulling on the oars is not the way it's done now - a brand new high speed lifeboat sits in its pier head boathouse, ready for immediate action. On the east promenade the RNLI Henry Blogg Museum tells the story of its most famous lifeboatman and his colleagues over those two hundred year.
As well as one of Norfolk's most attractive seaside resorts, Cromer is also an important residential, administrative and service centre for the growing population of North Norfolk - yet it still retains the air of Victorian and Edwardian charm at its heart. A recent regeneration programme has enhanced this charm whilst introducing new facilities in the town and on the seafront. We hope you'll come and explore all this for yourself!

We were a party of 6 seniors. We loved the location of Brunswick House. Being out of season we had no problem parking two cars within walking distance for free. It was a very short walk into the town and even to Lidl and Morrisons. The beach was at the bottom of the causeway which was just outside the front door. We had a nice view of the sea which changed from super calm to incredibly rough while we were visiting. I personally did have a few problems with the codes for the doors and remembering which way to turn the knob to open the door but other than that it was fine. The kitchen was well equipped except for the dishwasher which was a bit of a joke for 6 people. We felt the tv was a little small for the size of the lounge The timing on the hall light could do with being adjusted to allow for a slow descent down to the lower level. It was so nice to have private bathrooms plus the WC on the main floor. We had no problem with the hallway through the middle of the accommodation because there was only one elderly man living upstairs but not sure how it would work if the upper apartments were let out to holiday makers with children. Having said that though we would stay here again. Don't really recommend the fish and chips from the only fish and chip shop we found but do recommend the food in The Albion for being good value and being made to feel very welcome. We had a brilliant holiday.
