  • "The house was very clean and tidy and had a huge range of appliances and gadgets."

    The garden was absolutely ideal for the dogs. It was fully enclosed and very spacious for them to have a good run. The hot tub was an added bonus that was easy to use and enjoyable to use. The beach was incredible with the dogs being able to have long runs. Overall, we could not fault anything and would like to thank the owners for providing such wonderful accommodation.

  • "Myself and family with our dog stayed at Beach Haven at the end of March 2024 and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves."

    Lovely and clean, access to the Beach probably a little safer from the road than the garden but still very close. We had a lovely walk to the local pub a few times, really friendly people and great food. No need to really go far as Beach Haven has everything you need including the lovely Hot Tub looking out to sea. Thank you for a wonderful time, highly recommend.

  • "We had a superb week away in this very sociable home."

    The property accommodated our party of 7 comfortably. The games room/sun lounge is a great area for socialising and was well used as was the jukebox with great selection of music. A very well equipped and sociable kitchen. The hot tub at the end of the garden and overlooking the sea was lovely. We have two medium sized dogs, so the enclosed, wrap around gardens were ideal. Lovely beach beyond the garden, which, with dogs, we found easier to access from the track at the front of the property. Will certainly stay again.

  • "Very enjoyable say for a long weekend in March."

    Had a problem with a bedroom radiator and a smoking wood burner which have been passed on. The advertised private access to the beach does in fact go down to the narrow beach wall which is about 8ft above the beach. Handily the beach access is a few minutes walk from the property and is a wonderful place to walk at all times of the tide. We are returning in September!

  • "Beach Haven is a lovely, spacious, clean, well equipped property."

    We loved the games room and the hot tub. The hot tub is at the bottom of the garden with a super sea view. You can access the beach from the garden by walking about 50 metres along the sea wall and then down steps. Take a torch if you do this at night! The kitchen has all you need ( but only one bin bag was provided). Our only criticism was that the dishwasher was very small, not really adequate for the five of us. We were impressed by the prompt service by the friendly maintenance men when the juke box ‘stuck’. A generous supply of logs for the wood burner meant we could have a fire each evening or dance under the glitter ball, play darts or pool, all great fun. Thank you.

  • "We absolutely loved are stay at beach haven."

    The bungalow was very clean, beautifully fitted and furnished, very well equipped and the games room was amazing for all of us. There were a few things that let it down slightly, they are as follows The juke box kept not loading certain cds and would show an error code and stop playing, lucky I'm a mechanic and managed to get round this but it is a reoccurring issue. The wood burning fire door needs adjusting and possibly the rope seals need replacing as it's drawing in too much air and rips throught the fire wood as it can't be restricted. The hot tub is a lovely feature and the reason we chose beach haven however we felt it wasn't hot enough despite being max temp, also the placement on the cliff edge would be lovely in the summer however the wind chill really did spoil the experience and I would personally move the tub close to the house. Also closing the tub lid and securing out in the dark at night was quite tricky as the lighting isn't great. The mains water pressure is terrible, the main bathroom shower is incredible however the on suite shower isn't as good. Overall we loved our stay at beach haven however there are some things that could be improved which would absolutely make this property perfect.

    Thank you for feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. I am sorry you had an issue with the jukebox. I will get that error message fixed as soon as possible. Regarding the wood burner, we do not believe there is anything wrong with the door seals or the speed at which it burns wood. My husband and I were there recently and noted it took half an hour to burn one briquette, which we think is fine. We do supply quite a few briquettes so there should be adequate to use. About the hot tub, the water temperature is set at 38 degrees and I would not want to set it any higher for health and safety reasons. It does get cold and windy sometimes on the coast, which can't be helped, but we believe the location overlooking the sea is perfect and seeing the moonlight on the water makes up for any brief chill after getting out. We will certainly get some improved lighting there to assist with fastening the cover. Regarding the water pressure, you said the main shower is incredible so it can't be that bad! :-) I have used the ensuite shower many times and have not noticed any issues with water pressure or have had any other feedback about it, so it is hopefully okay. Once again, we're very glad you had a good stay and appreciate you taking the time to give us this detailed feedback, which we will take on board. Property Owner

  • "Absolutely beautiful."

    Fully equipped with everything you need. Stunning property and very comfortable. We had a small problem with a radiator and someone was there within an hour. Amazing service! Can’t wait to visit again…. So we can use the hot tub… Couldn’t use on this visit owing to freezing strong wind… but it not spoil our holiday one bit! Also, it was wonderful to see the seals at Horsey Gap! Thank you for a lovely holiday.

  • "We absolutely loved it, such a lovely place and so well presented, so well catered for too, amazing kitchen and utensils, literally thought of just about everything you could possibly think of or possibly need - we did leave our champagne flutes as only type of glass that wasn’t already there but we didn’t need to take half of what we crammed in the car :-) Enclosed garden was wonderful, hot tub amazing, so nice to relax in on New Year’s Eve with bubbles and bobble hats!"

    Conservatory / games room amazing, so nice to have the lights and Christmas tree up too, such a thoughtful touch. We had many games of pool and darts, we loved the disco ball too. Unfortunately the juke box had an error so we couldn’t use but it looked fab, we had taken our own music so no big deal, only suggestion might be for a chalk board by the darts board. The welcome pack was a nice surprise and we really couldn’t have asked for more, we loved our stay and only wish it was a little longer. Thank you - we would 100% recommend

    We spent Christmas here and the owner had made it special with decorations and a lovely tree. So many lovely touches in this house. Location overlooking the sea is amazing. Well stocked kitchen. We had a brilliant time. Would definitely recommend

  • "Beach Haven should be renamed Beach Heaven."

    It is a beautiful house in a remarkable position. The hot tub is spectacular on a cold starry night. The conservatory gets the sun in the mornings making it a bright warm place to sit and listen to the Dukebox. I would definitely recommend this beautiful family holiday home.

Settle into the sitting area in the selection of sofas, warming your feet beside the woodburning stove, or head over to the snug/games room and test your skills at pool and darts, listen to some of your favourite hits by using the jukebox, and have an evening dance under the disco ball, or grab a good book and recline in the conservatory snug area.

Guests can freshen up in the bathroom before settling into one of the four well-presented bedrooms, choosing between a king-size with en-suite, a super-king-size zip/link which can be set up as a twin on request, a second king-size or a twin.

The wrap-around garden is an idyllic spot to indulge in the salty air, offering extensive lawn space, garden furniture for an alfresco affair, direct access to the local beach, and the added opulence of a bubbling hot tub boasting extensive sea views.

Cart Gap is a hamlet resting on the coast of Norfolk, offering immediate access to a pretty sandy beach, as well as a local café, Smallsticks Café, and amenities and eateries at the close by town of Walcott.

All of this and so much more with a stay at the wonderful Beach Haven.

About the location


Norwich 19.3 miles; Great Yarmouth 22.5 miles

This historic village brushes the East Anglian coastline in the English county of Norfolk. Its lighthouse is the oldest working light in the area, as well as being the only independently run beacon in Great Britain, dating back to 1790. Its imposing tower of red and white stands proudly on the north-eastern headland surrounded by verdant countryside. You can visit this beautiful structure during public open days and climb the 112 steps up to the lantern. Another notable building in the village is St. Mary's Church, a 15th century landmark, whose tower warned mariners of the position of the perilous sandbanks nearby. This church also has set open days, where you can enjoy splendid views of the sea and enveloping fields from the top of the tower. Enjoy a picturesque stroll down to the beach and watch the lifeboats speedily tackle the untamed seas. There is also a village trail for you to amble, taking you past all the Happisburgh landmarks worth seeing. The village of Winterton-on-Sea is within easy reach by car and boasts a vast beach and wildlife-rich nature reserve that has attracted colonies of Terns and rare Natterjack toads. The old fishermen's cottages and village church makes it an idyllic location to bring the family for a day out. Further afield is the city of Norwich with its two cathedrals and Norman castle, whilst the popular seaside resort of Great Yarmouth offers one of Britain’s largest open air markets. A wonderful destination for your next holiday by the sea.
