  • "A lovely rental that was very well equipped."

    We two adults stayed with one small dog but feel it would be a tight fit for 4 adults, especially if they wanted to cook and eat in. The kitchen was very good with excellent oven and hob but the lounge/diner quite small so it would be a struggle to fit around the dining table. A very nice bathroom with brilliant shower.

    Thank you so much for your feedback. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Newby. Property Owner

  • ". Newby was very comfortable and restful, plenty of useful information about Norfolk. Very good information book for any problems with appliances and other general information"

    . Would highly recommend. Was surprised that there were no bio-degradble bags for use ib the food recycling bin.

    Hi, I'm so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Newby and thank you for your lovely feedback. West Norfolk Borough Council changed from biodegradable bags in food bins to 'use any bag' some time ago now. Thanks for using all our recycling options - it can be tricky when on holiday as no two areas seem to use the same system Property Owner

  • "The bungalow was very nice and comfortable."

    It had everything we needed and was in a good spot for touring the areas around it. It was a shame that the bathroom did not have a bath, as this made it difficult with a two year old! The shop/garage in the village can get very busy, but the ASDA store just outside Kings Lynn is not bad and you can get fuel. We visited the Walks in Kings Lynn. It is a wonderful park. Great for walking dogs and with a brilliant children's play area (different areas for different areas). Hillside Shire Horse Sanctuary at West Runton is fabulous. There are lots of different animals: goats, llamas, pigs, sheep, geese etc. Currently it's free to enter, but any donations help to care for the animals. We also managed to pay a visit to The Worlds Circus. They travel over Lincolnshire and Norfolk, and have deals on prices. It was really, really good and well worth the money. Some of the acts were truly amazing. There was a problem with the smoke detectors going off early in the morning. As they were hard wired, the owner came straightaway to deal with the problem. We would definitely return, and recommend the bungalow.

    Still this did not spoil our holiday which was very dog friendly. Bungalow exceeded all expectations, situated in a nice quiet peaceful village. Have already recommended this property to friends. This was our 6/7th Sykes holiday and once again we were not disappointed. We only use Sykes for holidays in this country and with our dog being made so welcome, we no longer holiday abroad. So we have a week in April and 2 weeks in September. Thanks you Sykes for giving us peace of mind when making these bookings.

  • "We arrived 13 Oct and all was OK to start with."

    On Sunday 14th the weather got chillier and we tried to put on the central heating only to find the boiler broken and it wouldn't come on. Phoned the owner immediately who came round quickly but couldn't get the boiler working. She supplied a convector heater for the bedroom and the living room had an additional flame effect blow out fire. An engineer inspected the boiler on Monday 15th and identified it needed a new part which was sourced and fixed but not until Thursday 18th. Myself and wife are well in our 60's and in addition my wife is disabled. We found it particularly cold in the mornings and evenings in the kitchen and bathroom and it did honestly affect the enjoyment of our holiday. Although the owner did try to help and kept in regular contact the lack of total heating for 4/5 days was not good. I feel a level of financial compensation would be appropriate for the inconvenience we suffered. Please advise.

    All info sent to us via emailed contact - meaning much less paperwork coming through our letterbox. We arrived at Newby just after 3.00pm to be welcomed with a lovely packet of our favourite biscuits plus a small carton of milk in the fridge. Honestly right down to tea-towels etc.. We were comfortably provided for. I will not laden down our car next year with towels, tea-towels, cleaning consumables etc... because it was all provided. Just after arriving the owner Catherine came to welcome us personally - what a lovely gesture! We really enjoyed our stay at Newby, Gayton and found its' location so convenient for the nearest town Kings Lynn and the A149 Coastal Road up to the Northern Nature Reserves. We even had two meals out at the Crown Pub in Gayton Village and would recommend the menu to anyone - We had the Sizzling Salmon one night and at the end of the week we ordered their Beef and Ale Pie - would recommend this highly Hopefully we will be booking again for next year.

The property

This lovely detached bungalow is situated in the small Norfolk village of Gayton, just seven miles from the historic town of King’s Lynn.

Conveniently placed for exploring the North Norfolk coast, this bungalow provides excellent accommodation for couples and families alike.

This spacious bungalow has a cosy sitting room with a dining area and an electric fire, the ideal space to enjoy a family meal which has been prepared in the well-equipped kitchen.

There are also two well-appointed bedrooms, one with a delightful king-size bed and the other with a double.

The enclosed rear garden is the perfect place for contemplating how you might spend the day, or to just relax with a glass of something cool in hand as the children and the dog play in safety.

A few minutes' walk brings you to the village pub and shops, whilst the historic market town of King's Lynn, just a short drive away, offers excellent amenities with its wide range of shops, restaurants and pubs, set along the cobbled streets.

Within easy reach are many attractions, including the Royal Sandringham Estate, just six miles away, Castle Acre and the local manor houses including Houghton hall and Holkham Hall.

Cyclists will love Norfolk Coast Cycleway, or perhaps spend a day beside the sea at the popular coastal resort of Hunstanton, or one of the many other Norfolk coastal towns including Wells-next-the-Sea or Holkham.

Nature lovers will also delight in the extensive wildlife on offer in Norfolk, particularly the RSPB reserves to be found near the coast.

This centrally-located bungalow is a lovely base for exploring all that Norfolk has to offer.

About the location

GAYTON

King's Lynn 7 miles; Swaffham 10 miles.

The small Norfolk village of Gayton is surrounded by charming, open countryside, and yet is within easy reach of the coast, offering two shops, a fish and chip shop and a pub, and host to a prominent historic windmill. Gayton lies seven miles to the east of the popular market town of King’s Lynn, which still retains the character, charm and many traditional buildings of its original function as a medieval port, set along its winding streets. With a mixture of old and new structures, King’s Lynn provides excellent amenities including a modern shopping centre, art galleries, museums, two theatres and its iconic Customs House. From Gayton, the North Norfolk Coast is within easy reach and will appeal to many, with its expansive golden sandy beaches, coastal walks and cycleways, RSPB reserves and nearby Sandringham House and Estate, Oxburgh Hall and Houghton Hall.
