  • "We had a lovely week at Donny's Plaice."

    The house is well furnished and has everything you need. Mandy and her partner were both very friendly, but not intrusive. There is a supermarket, various takeaways, pub, convenience store etc within a 5 minute walk, with the beach a further 5 minutes away. We'd happily return.

    Thank for you review it was lovely to meet you and we look forward to welcoming you back to Donny's Plaice Property Owner

  • "The welcome items were extensive including dog treats!"

    Mandy who lives next door was around to greet us and easily available. The property has only recently been prepared to a high standard. The shower although downstairs was extremely effective. Good heating provided. The courtyard is handy if weather good and very safe for a dog. Convenient for the dog friendly beach. Local pubs are very disappointing but better ones can be found by driving out of Caister.

    Thank-you for you review we are happy you enjoyed your stay with us at Donny's Plaice and look forward to welcoming you back sometime in the future Property Owner

  • "We had a great 4 night stay, the place was decorated how we would have done, not tired or dated."

    The shower had a lot of power which was great, the tv was a smart tv so we could catchup on our regular Netflix movies and programes. We used the bedroom at the front of the house which had a blackout blind as well as curtains which was a nice touch. It was like a home from home which is what we were after. The host Mandy is friendly and approchable which is always good. Parking is available off road for one car, but you could park elsewhere in the street if you had more than one vehicle. It is located close to Tescos which is a bonus and could be walked from the accomodation in less than 10 minutes. The high street with shops and take aways is less than 5 minutes walk away. I would recomend the Chinese take away, the food was really nice and not too greasey. Just past the shops is a round about where you turn right pass SuperFry chip shop and that will lead you to the beach car park. This is free at this time of the year which is a bonus. The dog friendly beach is easily walkable from the house. It's a sandy beach too which is great for children or dog walking. Great Yarmouth is around 10 minutes drive away, packed with shops, amusements and restaurants as well as a few piers & rides, Sealife, Model Village to name a few. So this accomodation is in a very good location and great for a base. We had a great time and celebrated our anniversary here and was not disapointed. Mandy also provide dog treats, milk and other items as a welcome pack which was very kind, not expected but welcomed. We had a great time and would return again.

    Thank-you for your lovely feedback. I'm happy you enjoyed you your stay with us at Donny's Plaice. We look forward to welcoming you back sometime in the future and I'd like to Thank-you for leaving Donny's Plaice so clean Property Owner

  • "Great location for exploring Norfolk, Mandy quickly dealt with the couple of issues."

    Myself & husband are in our late 50’s and found the stairs steep and we were grateful of the grab rail. Beds are comfortable (he snores lol). If an en-suite in the front bedroom was put in the closet that would be an added benefit. After busy days out, once hubby settled on the settee, there was only the tub chairs for me, not the best for relaxing in, a cuddle chair opposite the TV again would be an improvement. We missed having a fire at night time to make it feel cosy. The conservatory is beautiful but we felt the table was too big, a comfortable sofa & smaller table again would make better use of it. Outside, we moved the two single chairs to enjoy a coffee in the morning sunshine. Dog friendly, loved the flexible stair gate. Absolutely fabulous welcome gifts for us and the dogs. We were blessed with sunshine during the day and have thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. Thank you.

    I'm happy you enjoyed yourselves it was lovely meeting you. Thank you for the tips on ways to improve Donny's Plaice. You have given me something to work towards to improve the property. Kind regards Mandy x Property Owner

  • "The house was very nice and a good location."

    The only slight issue was the building work all day next door which was obviously no fault of our hosts and couldn't be helped but was quite annoying at some points. The only other thing we felt the house could have benefited from would be more seating in the lounge. As there was only 3 of us it was OK but any more people and you wouldn't all be able to sit together in there. Apart from this, the house was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. The welcome pack for both humans and dogs was a lovely touch. Hosts were extremely friendly and helpful

    Thankyou for your review it was lovely to meet you and, we would love to welcome you back sometime in the future. Sorry about the building work next door they have neatly finished I have added another tub chair in the lounge Thankyou for the feedback Mandy Property Owner

  • "Lovely owner who lives next door and unexpected welcome items for us which was great."

    All Modern appliances with exception of dishwasher but understandable as no space for it. Fantastic shower and water pressure. Small but really lovely outside space with Gazebo. Only two downsides for us personally: The road that it was on was narrow and full on one side with parked cars. Even though slate area at front of property for parking it not always easy to manoeuvre. Also the toilet next to the shower has very little room and being overweight it was a very compacted area, but I do appreciate this may have been the only option for the owner. Overall a lovely place to stay

    Thankyou for your review it was lovely to meet you. I have plans for the bathroom to see how I can improve it thankyou for positive feedback I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay at Donny's Plaice Best wishes Mandy Property Owner

The property

Well-positioned in the heart of Caister-on-Sea, a bustling town upon the Norfolk coastline is Donny's Plaice, a fabulous, three-bedroom home.

Just paces away from a hub of shops, eateries, and pubs, whilst within walking distance to the beach, Donny's Plaice offers a well-equipped base for a family of six, looking to explore the delights of East Anglia.

Park up on the driveway or benefit from additional roadside parking, before heading indoors, to be greeted by the lovely sitting room, complete with plush seating to unwind upon with the Smart TV in sight.

Continue into the kitchen, fully-equipped for a self-catered stay, where you can rustle up meals to be enjoyed in the suntrap conservatory, or outdoors upon the patio, with the delightful pergola overhead.

While the night away around the dining table, or bask in your surroundings until the sun sets, soon heading upstairs to catch some rest from one of three bedrooms; select between a king-size, a double, and a bunk room.

Awaken to a refreshing shower in the ground-floor shower room, before travelling on foot into the town, where you can dine, stock up on the essentials, or simply take in your seaside position; Caister Castle is also nearby to tour, along with the Great Yarmouth & Caister Golf Club, and Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens, offering activities for all types of visitors.

With the Norfolk Broads a car journey away, keen walkers and explorers can enjoy the nature-filled landscape of the national park, with plenty of hiking trails and beauty spots to discover, whilst beachgoers will prefer a day out at Great Yarmouth, brimming with coastal attractions.

Be sure to visit the Britannia Pier, or opt for a thrill-seeking afternoon at the Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach, whilst history buffs can tour the Time and Tide Museum of Great Yarmouth Life, before dining out near the coast.

Complete your getaway with a tour of Norwich, it's museum cathedral and a hub of amenities and shopping opportunities, before returning home for sun set.

All of this awaits with a stay at Donny's Plaice.
