  • "Lovely cottage - everything you need for a break by the sea and the beds were so comfy (we've stayed in lots of lovely places that had not invested in good mattresses and quality bedding so I was so pleased how nice Sea Urchin's beds were!"

    ) The hosts were friendly, attentive and helpful and there were lots of thoughtful touches around the cottage. Lots of modern features that made the holiday even better for us - air fryer, good WiFi, TVs in every room, Hive heating etc. There isn't much nearby but supermarkets will deliver groceries and we loved the peace and quiet - despite being the school holidays we had the beach to ourselves almost every day! The proximity to such a beautiful sandy beach is astounding.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. I’m so grateful and glad to read your amazing and detailed feedback on your stay at Sea Urchin. Your kind words really touched my heart . We’re so pleased you all had an amazing time. We put a lot of consideration and time into trying to make Sea Urchin a home from home for those who come to stay. I’m sorry you had to cut your holiday short due to a family emergency. We hope you’ll all consider coming and staying again. We’d love to have you all back. Thank you also for leaving a review of your holiday in our guest book. Thanks again, Robert. Property Owner

    Lots of little thoughtful touches throughout. Comfortable beds and seating, including a sunny positioned outdoor table, and a lovely shower. Brilliantly located: 3 minutes walk from the beach and from there a short walk to a fabulous little cafe. The owner Robert was so very considerate of our arrival and departure time. We look forward to a return soon. Thank you from the Allens :)

It is a perfect base for exploring both the stunning Norfolk Coast and the tranquillity of the Norfolk Broads. The award-winning Blue Flag beach offers excellent sheltered swimming and watersports, with the beach having the advantage of RNLI lifeguards on duty every day, as well as being home to its very own lifeboat. The village is well served with cafes, a pub, amusement arcade, Post Office and general store. The regular bus service is ideal for exploring the surrounding villages or hire a bike at nearby Waxham Barns and take advantage of the quiet and flat country lanes. The immediate area hosts fantastic coastal walking and is well known for its colony of grey seals, which can be seen relaxing on the beaches of Sea Palling, Waxham and Horsey. If you are interested in more nature, Hickling Nature Reserve is only a few miles away, and for those wanting something a little livelier, the historic city of Norwich is less than half an hour by car.
