  • "It’s a lovely cottage within a very short walking distance of the beautiful beach of East Runton."

    The cottage is set back from the main road so it’s quiet. Getting onto the lane was tricky however. I’m a confident driver and can usually manage tricky turns etc with ease but found this difficult The cotttage was comfortable with everything you need. Cleanliness was ok. The double bed was very hard but this would suit some. Those with dogs who aren’t so well behaved off lead need to be aware that you will need to walk your dog to the garden as this is set back from an access path

  • "We had a lovely week in this cottage."

    Easy access to the beach and therefore Cromer along the beach or along the road. Property is as described, so no surprises. Note the instructions given re parking when you phone about key collection then you won’t have a problem; there’s always a parking space opposite the front door. The kitchen is well equipped and putting the dog on the lead to take her in the garden wasn’t really a problem. The location is incredibly quiet and a good base for touring the area.

  • "The location was very good, close to a beach, shop, take away and pub."

    The cottage itself was comfortable, however there were some issues. The living room was not very clean on arrival the carpet and seating was covered in dog hair and smelled. The stairs are very narrow and steep with a difficult turn at the top making it very difficult for a person with mobility issues. The bathroom being downstairs off the kitchen was not easy in the night but good in the day having a downstairs toilet. Parking was an issue as it is very narrow with a difficult turn and you either reverse in or out. However in its favour the beds were really comfortable, the kitchen well equipped, and the garden safe and good for kids to play in.

  • "The property was as described."

    However, the narrow steep stairs are definitely not for anyone with weight or mobility issues. Having the only bathroom downstairs is very inconvenient due to the stairs. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and utensils. We did have issues with the shower. The shower head sprays everywhere and needs to be replaced. No amount of adjusting could rectify that and we had to clean the drain of hair as it was not draining properly. There is also some mould issues up the wall which need to be cleaned/removed. The house is cozy and so close to the beach and the town of Cromer. The local convenience store is seconds away and stocks everything you may need in a hurry. Would not hesitate to book a different property based on our needs, but Number 5 was a lovely stay. The owner was prompt in replying as far as check in etc.

    Also very quiet despite being a moment to the coast road. Slightly tricky parking the car in front of the house - not sure an estate car would make the corner! Very well equipped - only downside being the rear enclosed garden was across a common path so our younger (and not so well trained yet!) dogs had to go on the lead every time they needed to use the facilities. Highly recommend the pub - excellent Sunday lunch and very (dog) friendly bar staff and customers.

    It was clean, beds comfortable and the cottage was well equipped if you self-cater and even had Sky! It was great to have use of the garden. The only thing to flag is parking is difficult as it is a tight sharp bend to navigate - so if you have a big car you will struggle and the stairs are steep so not suitable if you are not very mobile. Overall we had a lovely stay.

    I’m very fussy with cleanliness. All the essentials were provided, hand soap, kitchen cloths, toilet roll etc. lovely garden with seating area, although you have a communal path between the house and the garden this was not a problem - if you have a dog the garden is secure and has a gate. Any pictures I have seen of this property do not do it justice. The parking was tight but I managed to park my car outside the cottage everyday. Someone we spoke to chose to park in the beach car park across the road instead for the week, which wasn’t very expensive. The owner was also very helpful and quick to respond to any questions prior to arriving.

    All very clean and tidy. The back garden is secure but over a shared path therefore unable to let our dog directly out of the back door. Stairs VERY steep which we new. The only real criticism was the fitted sheet was a double on a king sized bed probably the fault of the cleaner.! All that said it was pretty good

  • "The cottage was lovely, warm, very clean, well equipped and nicely decorated, and the neighbours were very friendly and helpful."

    It is in an ideal location, 5 minutes walk from a lovely beach, local shop, pubs and the beautiful village of East Runton and walking distance to Cromer. It would be good to have had a 'Welcome Folder' with details of wi-fi code, nearest chemist, shop opening hours etc., as we have had in other cottages we've rented. Also a 'Guest Book' for guests to write about their experience and of places they've visited, restaurants etc. The parking is a bit tight, but quite manageable. The only problem is that where the parking space is for 5 Melinda Cottages, the neighbour over the back has an over hanging tree that dropped sticky sap plus bird droppings on our car. The over hanging branches need cutting back. We're not precious about our car, but some guests may be. Other than that, we had a lovely holiday and would definitely consider returning.

    Thank you for the comments, We are waiting for planning permission to cut the trees as they are in a conservation area. The info book will be going back in was removed due to covid, we are in the process of updating the book. Thank you Property Owner

    The cottage itself was very clean and comfortable with a very well equipped kitchen with everything we needed and more! Location was absolutely perfect, the beach only a couple of minutes walk away, ideal for lovely dog walks! If I had to be really picky and the only small negative was the lack of information on how everything in the cottage worked being close to hand, but as I say I’m being really picky. Would definitely return to this cottage and highly recommend to others.

  • "This cottage is not suitable for anyone with mobility issues."

    The stairs are very steep and as the bathroom is downstairs it makes it very difficult for those who need to use the bathroom at night. Access is difficult - a wide car would not get into the entrance to the cottage. Extremely poor shower, and no toilet brush. Kitchen was minimally equipped- I have never seen so many knives - most of which were blunt. There were cracks in the plates . There was no way to light the hob as the ignitor was broken. The location was great.

  • "On arrival the cottage was very clean and as described."

    Very cosy with a good sized kitchen and a separate dining area. As described in the property detail the steep stairs and shower over the bath may mean the cottage is not suitable for people with mobility issues. The garden would be a fantastic spot to relax in the summer. The location is perfect for the beach, walking, shop, pubs, restaurant and public transport. All these facilities within a 3 minute walk. Parking outside the cottage entails angling the car between 2 properties to enter or leave the private lane, with average reversing and parking skills this is easy after getting used to the required angle of approach. There are alternatives in parking on Felbrigg Rd for free (after the right hand bend park on the right by a small grass bank) or pay £28 for a week to park in the Beach Rd car park (you can use the ticket in other NNDC car parks such as Wells and Sheringham which offsets the costs). You park under a tree on the lane which can result in large bird droppings on your roof, the neighbour uses a car cover to negate this issue. If you have 2 cars consider bringing the smaller one. In the cottage only one issue, a young child next door during the day would very often be screaming for no apparent reason. Hopefully the child will soon grow out of this behaviour as in the early evening we had to turn on the TV to drown it out. Overall a very enjoyable holiday and I would recommend the cottage.

  • "The cottage was cosy and well equipped but wasn’t really suitable for older people ."

    The stairs are really narrow and steep ( older cottages always are) and the bathroom is on the ground floor at the back of the cottage, so quite a trek in the middle of the night! But for a younger couple or family it was a good choice. The bathroom and kitchen are lovely, very modern and had everything we needed. When I rang the owner for key details he said he had some issues with the cleaner so had to get a new one. I hope this works out because though cottage was fairly clean overall it needed some attention in places. The freezer still had food in it from previous people, the kettle was full of lime scale and the dining table was very sticky. The cupboard under the stairs ,where the vacuum cleaner and brooms are kept, looked as if everything had just been thrown in so was a big jumble of stuff. It was very difficult to get things out to clean up sand or spills etc. The little garden was nice but again the shed had loads of junk in it, an old cupboard, oven, kettle etc. Things that really needed chucking out to make space for things that are needed. Parking is a bit hairy, thank goodness my husband can reverse park in a very tiny space but we managed! This cottage is in a lovely quiet position in east runton with loads of things to do close by and ideal for families that need a beach within a short walk but attention to cleaning and tidying of cupboards would make a huge difference.

  • "The cottage is in a good location and facilities are commensurate with the Syke’s 3* rating."

    Unfortunately the cleanliness of the cottage (inc. bathroom, kitchen and carpets) really let the property down. This was part concerning given enhanced cleaning should have been in place due to the C-19 pandemic. That, along with some maintenance issues, dampened the start to our holiday - which we spent deep cleaning the cottage. We are used to pets and booked the cottage knowing it’s sometimes let to guests with dogs; (although we didn’t bring any four legged friends with us due to space). However, on arrival the cottage smelt overpoweringly (of dog), to the point of being really unpleasant. We filled the hoover twice, vacuuming the living room carpet, landing and stairs (which is no mean feat given their relatively small area), and had to keep the doors and windows open whenever we were in the cottage to air it. There were food spills in front of the microwave in the kitchen but by far the worst was the bathroom: The seal on the shower screen was thick with black mould, as was the shower hose, and plug. Black mould also extended ~ a foot up the corners either side of the shower. The seal around the bath had started to peel with (pink) bacteria and mould gathering underneath. The bathroom window sill was dusty, as were the bottom rungs of the towel radiator. Maintenance issues; (mentioned in a previous review in June) persisted: Bathroom and kitchen taps were dripping (during our stay the kitchen tap was dripping so much it filled the bowl in the sink a couple of times every 24 hours). Rusty garden furniture. In addition; the towel radiator in the bathroom has also started to corrode and was rusty - I received an interesting response when I reported this to the owner. We also spent some time hammering carpet gripper back down after both my daughter and mother cut their heels (on different treads) coming down the stairs. Other minor issues (e.g. less bowls than beds in the property) were also left with the owner. We contacted the owner at the time of our stay to report the issues. He was apologetic and has offered some compensation - albeit this is still awaited.

  • "We had a lovely break in East Runton and 5 Melinda cottages was a perfect base with easy reach of the beach at East Runton and into Sheringham and Cromer."

    The cottage was clean and well equipped but the beds were really uncomfortable. All 4 of us did not sleep well over the 3 nights, we all ended up sleeping on top of the duvets for an extra layer over the mattresses springs, also they were very noisy, whenever you turned over the bed/headboard banged and creaked. We would advise the vendor to invest in some new comfortable beds for future visitors. We had seen that others had commented on the parking being an issue but luckily we have a smallish car that we were able to manoeuvre down the narrow driveway and into the small parking space, I think if you had a big car you would struggle but understand that nothing can be done about this issue. The only other negative was that although the garden area is secure and enclosed, we were not aware and people staying at the property should be aware that you are unable to open the back door for your dog as there is a pathway between the cottages that then leads to the garden area. Which meant putting our dog on the lead and taking him into the garden but we appreciate that this is a typical lay out for old cottages and couldn’t be changed. However, we had a great break staying in Melinda cottage and were really lucky to have brilliant hot weather too.

The property

This is a lovely mid-terrace Victorian fisherman’s cottage, located on a private no-through lane and close to the sea front in the popular village of East Runton, near Cromer in North Norfolk.

This attractive cottage is ideal for friends and families alike, looking to explore this wonderful coastline from a great location.

Park up directly outside your cottage and step into the cosy sitting room which has a gas fire, ideal for relaxing with a movie after a day out exploring.

The kitchen is located at the back of the cottage, just beyond the dining room and with a door to the back garden.

There is also a family bathroom which is also located on the ground floor.

Upstairs are three lovely bedrooms, the double bedroom having a TV.

Outside this cosy cottage, relax in the enclosed garden, which is a real sun trap, enjoying a morning coffee while planning your day out.

After a busy time exploring the area, there is nothing better than dining alfresco using the barbecue.

The sea front offers cliff-edge views with wonderful coastal walks and the village itself is well-served with a convenience store, a Greek restaurant and two pubs, ideal for enjoying a meal or a drink after a day out.
