On May 11th, 1848 a quantity of sixteenth century gold coins was found at the foot of the cliffs near Scratby by local beachmen. At the same time the California gold rush in America was much in the news. The beachmen decided that their new village needed a name – and California, Norfolk came into being. By 1851 houses were being built there. By 1861 when the next population census was taking place the population of this new hamlet had risen to almost two hundred. By 1870 over forty houses had been built, plus the original California Tavern.

"Huisje erg krap met erg weinig voorzieningen wel mooie ligging"

Prachtige ligging, leuke stretchers, maar zeer klein oppervlak van het huisje, bij aankomst waren de bedden niet opgemaakt, was het bed in de ouderslaapkamer echt te klein te kort en te smal voor ons … More

Dank voor uw beoordeling. Niet al te zeker wat het zegt, maar teleurgesteld met de twee sterren. Ik hoop dat je genoten van de prachtige locatie. Geen aanpak werd gemaakt om me tijdens uw verblijf met betrekking tot eventuele problemen of klachten dus ik neem alles was gewoon perfect?

"Quiet, relaxing week away"

We stayed in a Hickling chalet for a week. Pretty basic but had everything we needed. You need to take your own sheets, pillowcases and towels or hire them and you need to take pound coins for the e… More

Thankyou for your review. We are glad you found it "a quiet and relaxing week away" and that "one is right on the cliff and it was wonderful just sitting in or out overlooking the actual sea".
The Hickling is our budget accommodation and so we do leave it upto guests to decide to bring or hire linen and to pay for what they use in electricity, this enables us to keep costs down for the Hickling - just £295 for 7 nights in May overlooking the sea on the Norfolk coast! This is also much "Greener" as linen on unused beds is not laundered unnecessarily and electricity consumption is much lower when it is metered.
All our other self catering holiday accommodation includes linen, towels, electricity, gas for central heating in Pine Lodge and oil in Beachside House, but of course the tariffs are a little higher to facilitate this and for "Green" taxes that have to be paid on commercial energy use.
We have checked the WIFI ourselves and with other guests and could not find a problem with it, we do only advertise the free WIFI facility as a free WIFI zone, as there are dead spots in the park, but you will be able to connect to the free WIFI somewhere within the free zone.

Thank you for your review - glad you enjoyed your stay at Beachside Holidays in Norfolk. Hope to see you again soon, why not try one of our Barton or Pine Lodge accommodations next time where electricty is included in the tariff.

Me and my boyfriend and son stayed here for 4 nights all though the weather was absolutly terrible our holiday was still lovely.. The apartament was lovely and cosy... The only complaint was the dvd player didnt work,, but it was no big deal.. Would definatly stay again,,the beach right next to us was lots of fun for my little boy and the arcade near by.. Thankyou very much for our holiday.

Thankyou for your review - glad you were lovely & cosy and still able to enjoy the super sea views, despite the terrible weather. Sorry that you had problems with the DVD. Hope you will return to enjoy better weather here with us on the Norfolk coast.
