    I have split this review into 2, the accommodation, followed by tips and reviews on the area/Norfolk. Accommodation 8/10 Firstly when I booked here I got this for what I believe was a reasonable price. The pictures looked good and the place seemed like it had character. Getting here I should have read the email a little clearer, at the end of the long drive before the estate turn left, don’t go straight on as the road is awful. I would assume this is a deterrent to stop non-locals visiting the beach. The accommodation was probably the nicest looking one from outside, you can tell it’s recently been done up. Once inside the apartment it’s really spacious and welcoming. The games room is a nice touch and the seating area in the living is really well laid out and relaxing. The log burner came in use the first night (tip) purchase wood from the local farm shop (£3.00) and kindle (£1.50). Was strange that there is an honesty box and a note saying £10 wood and £6 kindling, but either way I guess this stops people just taking it all or burning through it every night. Upstairs bedroom was good size, bathroom also nice. Didn’t get chance to use the bath but it looked good. Downstairs the bedrooms had 2 double beds in and comfortable (other review about being too low was incorrect?) . Garden area was nice and when it was sunny was good to sit and lay in the sun. The beach was great nice private (ish) and was a 1 mile walk around the beach front and estate, so was nice to take the dog around, for a run or walk in the morning. The area is in the middle of nowhere to a degree, nothing is really in walking distance. The cafe is probably a 30 min walk away. The breakfast was good, but a nightmare drive up as the road is even worse than the entrance. Would recommend if your looking for somewhere in the area or something nice and quiet. The accommodation has been done well, the WiFi and TVs in each room. Along with a good spacious modern feel. Well done to whoever worked on the renovation. Norfolk (6/10) I tried to buy a lonely planet guide as everywhere else I have been from New York to Cornwall has had one. Norfolk didn’t have one (I now know why) Highlights of the trip 1. Horsey - was fun seeing the seals so close and was a nice walk. 2. Poppy fields - great cafe, good food and well themed. His is right next to Horsey Gap (seal viewing area) 3. Wells next the sea - Massive beach, good views of the beach huts. 4. Cromer - Good town, nice crab. The baguette shop was also good here. 5. Holt - Nice market town. Very classy, good shops and coffee places etc. 6. Happisburgh - light house and failing sea defences.
