    “The beds on the ground floor and the sofa are very very uncomfortable - the sofa was very low and for someone with back and knee problems - I struggled to get comfortable on the sofa - thank god for the two arm chairs.”

    The mattress was too hard for my liking (personal preference more than anything). ...

    The mattress was too hard for my liking (personal preference more than anything). I am not sure if there was a problem with the pre-programmed hot water system - but we never seemed to get any hot water, even with a "boost" to the system. Both bins were full upon arrival, we put them out on Thursday as instructed but only the green bin got emptied, so the next person going into the cottage will struggle to be able to put their rubbish in the bins. When we arrived we had someone knock on the door trying to sell " a new driveway", which made us un-easy all week, as we weren't sure if they were just chancing it, or watching the cottage and my dog !! Just a couple of recommendations - One or two USB sockets and a shaver socket would be favourable around the cottage and a hot tub in the garden. Despite these little grumbles, we had a lovely relaxing week. The dog loved the enclosed garden and the fact that the beech was on the doorstep. I would most certainly book again - but would love to see the sofa replaced first. Many Thanks

About the location


North Walsham 6 miles; Cromer 14 miles; Norwich 18 miles.

Eccles-on-Sea is a small, quiet unspoiled coastal village on the east Norfolk coast, nestled between Happisburgh and Sea Palling. The beach at Eccles is sandy, with the sea one of the cleanest in Britain, and this spot is ideal for walking the dog as it has no summer restrictions. The village of Happisburgh is 2 miles away, with its red and white candy-striped lighthouse, and Sea Palling, 1.8 miles away, has many facilities, including a Jet Ski centre. The Norfolk Broads are also close by, with Hickling just a few miles away being the largest broadland village, complete with a National Nature Reserve. East Ruston Gardens, 1.5 miles from Eccles-on-Sea, is a must for gardeners, with 18 acres of stunning gardens. The fine city of Norwich is 18 miles away, offering a beautiful Norman cathedral and castle, along with many good shops and restaurants.
