“A fabulous break in a brilliant chalet” Mundesley is a real gem. The chalet was perfectly kitted out, scrupulously clean and lacked nothing. The site is clean and quiet and the other residents are friendly. Local facilities are excellent and I would love to be back right now!!!
“Gorgeous little hideaway” Just back from a week at the Lilypad and it was fantastic! Jane and Steve were around if we needed them but left us to our own devices. I had told Jane we were bringing bikes and she very helpfully left some cycling routes for us which we fully utilised. Also had some fresh eggs from their chickens and sampled some of Steve's home brew! The Lilypad is tiny but very well equipped and spotlessly clean, perfect for 2 people. The gardens were a real bonus, especially as we had such good weather, we ate breakfast in the front garden every day. The area is beautiful and Mundesley is a lovely little village with a superb beach. We ate at the Ship one night, the food is good but service a little slow. We also had a Thai takeaway from New Sage which is probably one of the best we've had and fish and chips from the Village Chippy, excellent! Be warned though, both are very popular with locals and visitors so you will queue but well worth the wait! There is a very good butcher/deli in the village as well as a nice fruit and veg shop.
We cycled to Cromer from the house along the 'quiet lanes route', very picturesque and, well, quiet! Cromer is really nice and worth spending a day there. Try Cromer crab sandwiches at the Crab Pot cafe in town, superb! We also cycled from Aylsham to Wroxham alongside the Bure Valley steam train, lovely ride through the countryside but uneven gravel surface and a bit overgrown. Wroxham is nice but very touristy and seems to be owned by someone called Roy! We did Norwich one day, going in on the train from North Walsham, lovely city, especially around the Cathedral and Tombland. Drove to Sheringham one day, another lovely seaside town. For nature lovers the RSPB reserve at Strumpshaw is excellent, we went from there to Brundall Bay Marina where we met friends for coffee at East Hills bistros, perfect for boat and people watching! One of our best days was at Happisburgh lighthouse, suggested by Steve who volunteers there, so glad we did that. Another fantastic beach at Happisburgh and a very popular village cafe! All in all, had a fantastic week at the Lilypad, well worth the 7 hour drive from South Wales, would definitely stay again and recommend to others.
