Further details indoors

The property is spacious throughout and exceptionally well equipped. The combined kitchen and dining room sits 14 and is great for group meals. The lounge has stylish and comfortable sofas to relax in with a good selection of DVDs to choose from.

There are two bedrooms on the ground floor (one double and one twin) as well as a WC and a shower room so ideal for anyone who has difficulty with stairs. Upstairs, there is then a further five bedrooms (two kingsize, one double and two singles). All of the beds are comfortable with fresh white bed linen and most have new mattresses.

Further details outdoors

There is a large patio area between the property and the pool which is ideal for summer barbecues. The enclosed garden is also of a size for children to play in, adults to sunbathe in and large enough that a football could be knocked about.

The heated swimming pool is housed in its own building within the garden and is about 40 sqm so a super size even when a full party of 14 is in the house. There is also a small sauna to the corner which is coin operated. Please note that pool towels are not provided.

Further details

A welcome pack can be provided at the beginning of the visit if requested. There is a small charge for this service.

About this location

The East Anglia region

Norfolk is known as Nelson's county and the more you explore, the more you will fall in love with this lovely part of East Anglia.

Generally considered as one of the the driest counties if not the driest in the country, Norfolk has a long coast line and Mundesley is on the North Coast. As you drive up towards the property, you will pass the Norfolk Broads and many say that it is a great day out on one of the boats there. There is also a large number of houses and/or gardens that can be visited - Sandringham being the most famous.


Mundesley is a great place for a relaxing holiday. It is situated right on the coast and has a lovely sandy beach. In the summer months, dogs are not allowed on the beach but as the property is close to a walk on the part of the beach that does allow dogs, this is never an issue.

As a very good sized village, Mundesley has a good selection of shops for provisions and supplies as well as flowers and gifts. There is also a Post Office and a choice of several places to eat and drink. Mundesley also has its own golf course - just over 15 mins walk from the property so only a few minutes in the car. There is also a horse riding centre at the edge of the village.

The livelier resorts of Cromer (tennis courts are also available here) and Sheringham are not far away and worth a visit plus there is plenty to discover in Nelson's county anyway - its beautiful coast, big country houses and Norwich to name just a few attractions.

This client's review is full of half truths and is completely inaccurate in parts. You should be aware that before posting this review, the client informed us they would write a bad review if we did not agree to their unfair demands. This followed the discovery that our personal liability insurers did not agree with the Client that liability for damage to their car lay with us. Please call us to discuss anything in this review if you want to, before booking. Having said this, the parts that were accurate have been dealt with; we have reviewed the house guest manuals and the conservatory roof and toilet have been fixed.
