    The design of the property is perfect for two families - one being grandparents and the other a family with up to two children as the rooms are at separate ends of the bungalow, each with their own facilities. The garage is equipped with a washing machine and tumble dryer. Everything was very clean and worked. The beds were very comfortable and the chairs and settee in the lounge are recliners. Televisions everywhere - not that we used them! There are are also plenty of DVD films and books and boxed games of all descriptions.

  • "A modern, very clean and well equipped bungalow."

    We enjoyed our stay and would happily return. It should be noted that the walk into Sheringham is quite a long one and involves a very busy road, fine for us but those with young children or difficulty walking might find it difficult. As a base to explore the wider area though, the bungalow is highly recommended.

  • "Excellent place to stay and the owners add extra touches such as tea , coffee and milk was provide on our arrival."

    They even provided a loaf of bread and a selection of preserves. The accommodation was homely and comfortable but there was only enough seating in the lounge area for five persons so one of us had to sit on a bean bag. Apart from that we enjoyed our time at Elliots retreat and would definitely recommend the property.

    The bungalow's position, on a delightfully quiet estate of bungalows, is fabulous. The bungalow had everything we wanted and could possibly have needed. All three bedrooms are of a good size and having a bathroom and a separate shower room is great as we were three couples sharing the accommodation. The lounge is a delightfully sunny, light room and as with all other rooms, extremely comfortable and beautifully decorated. The kitchen-diner was a lovely place in which to share meals (extremely well-equipped) The folder with operating instructions for the electrical equipment was very helpful. The 'corner-shop', just a short walk away, is very well-stocked and has very pleasant, informative staff (they made us feel very 'at-home'). We also exchanged pleasantries with the neighbours who also welcomed us. We had a fabulous holiday and certainly hope to return to Elliott's Retreat in the future.

About the location


Cromer 4.8 miles.

Sheringham was originally a small fishing village on the North Norfolk coast, but with the arrival of the railways in 1887 it prospered and grew into a popular holiday town. Sheringham has been awarded ten consecutive European Blue Flags for cleanliness for its beach, along with awards from Britain in Bloom, Anglia in Bloom, and Best Coastal Resort. Enjoy walking along the East or West promenades, offering sea views with blue skies and red sunsets, a beach with a silver-pebbled shoreline leading to golden sands with rock pools and streams next to ochre cliffs, local fishing boats and a RLNI lifeboat station with museum. This attractive traditional seaside town also has the 'Little Theatre', open all year round, seaside gardens with seating, a model boating lake, independent shops, tea rooms, steam railway, golfing, amusement arcades, and fish & chip shops selling locally-caught fish.

Towels are NOT included for the foreseeable future.
