    Thanks so much for your lovely comment. We hope to see you back at Maples. Victoria and Chris Property Owner

  • "Absolutely loved the break, thankyou."

    However just a few issues, The dishwasher failed to work it showed E15 as problem. Showers running warm and cold, and very slow output of water. Lamp in Oriental room was broken upon arrival. These didn't spoil our experience but feel you need to know. Thankyou for sharing your house with us. Definately rebook for next year.

    Thanks so much for your feedback. We have ordered a new dishwasher - so that should be sorted now [thanks for letting us know]. Where all of the showers running hot/cold or just one bathroom? I would like to have that looked at but will need to know the room. Thanks for letting us know. Chris and Victoria. Property Owner

    It took us a while to work out the controls of the range and microwave but we managed in the end.

    We love the location too - very close to the beach and the town - best of both worlds. The cooker/microwave can be a bit fiddly to work out - we will update the instructions. Glad you had a great time. Chris and Victoria. Property Owner

  • "Maples is a lovely house."

    Clean and well equipped. There were only 2 tiny issues that we had, the large ensuite bathroom is freezing even with heating on full blast...maybe some sort of heater could be installed? Also this bathroom has no towel rail or hooks, please put a couple of hooks up! And as we were an older group and there was only 1 walk in shower we all had to climb into a bath and there are no safety handles or even a shower mat so 2 of my party felt very unsafe and had to keep using the shower in the master ensuite. Nothing that couldn't be rectified very easily. Bath mats for a start would be very much appreciated. But as I say very small issues. Overall the house was good, clean and the heating system is so easy to use I was very happy not having to read a load of instructions!

    We are so glad you all enjoyed your stay! We will certainly look into the Oriental en-Suite bathroom radiator; there must be an airlock or something. Some handles for the showers is a great idea - we will look into that and get some installed before your next visit. Best regards, Chris and Victoria. Property Owner

  • "We had a fantastic Holiday at Maples."

    There was 11 of us four generations age 3-79. Plenty of space for everyone to relax and have quiet time which was much needed with 3 little boys under 5. Our girls liked having the loft bedroom with their own games room. The stairgates were very useful!. It was a very short walk to the beach and into town. We spent lots of family time in the kitchen cooking, eating and playing games the table was perfect for all the family to sit together. My 79 year old Mum said her bed was so comfy she did not want to leave. We would certainly stay again in the future.

  • "We have just had the best holiday at Maples."

    Three generations family gathering. So much space for getting together in groups of various sizes or altogether as we wanted to. The house is so well equipped with the bedroom sizes and showering facilities, the safe garden and outside furniture for barbecue and eating. The kitchen is enormous and fully equipped. Everything has been considered from stairgates to a dedicated games room plus unfailing wifi. Hunstanton speaks for itself and is easily within walking distance. Nearer to the house we found two children's play areas that were easily accessible for them on foot for those times to let off steam nearby. The corner shop at the end of the road is a godsend for extra bits, though we arranged a Tesco delivery for the evening of our arrival without any problem. Parking nearby in the street for the cars that didn't fit in front of the house (we had 4) was never a problem. Owners are accessible and caring.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback, and we are glad you had a great time. I'm also glad you enjoyed the new BBQ (we updated it following some poor feedback)! We look forward to seeing you again! Chris and Victoria Property Owner

  • "I suppose it depends what you want, as a family, from a holiday."

    If you don't do much cooking, and enjoy watching TV with 'surround sound' in each room, then this is the place for you. Our family dynamic however is different: in the evenings we like to cook good locally sourced produce, and sit, chatting and eating 'en famille' in the kitchen. Unfortunately the house does not lend itself to this; the facilities didn't work properly (oven/BBQ) and the undimmable overhead lighting in the kitchen was on a par with a second World War "interrogation" room. On a plus side the bathrooms were clean, the beds clean but some not very comfortable - downside - leaking taps and pipes, and the garden area and most of the house in desperate need of some TLC. Books and games for the children were appreciated. Decent beaches not quite as easily accessible as the description implies.

    Hi Teresa, I'm sorry that Maples didn't suit your holiday; we really try hard to ensure everyone enjoys their stay. We have replaced the BBQ as you were right, it was not good enough. We have had an engineer out to fix the SMEG Range, but they couldn't find an issue. We will keep an eye on it incase of an intermittent issue. Unfortunately the kitchen lights are not dimmable; however we have added a couple of lamps to allow for a less bright lighting option. All the best and thanks for the feedback.

    Everything is provided which is great but needs alot of tlc. Scuff marks on walls. Grouting in bathrooms etc. really loose patio slabs which where you step down.

    Hi Michael, Thanks for your feedback. We try extremely hard to keep the property to a high standard and refresh the decoration every year; unfortunately a 12 person house does occasionally get scuffs and chips on the paintwork, which we will have looked at during the next refresh. The slabs in the back have been repaired, as you were right, they had come loose. Thanks for the feedback. Chris and Victoria Property Owner

  • "Fabulous location and great space for a large group-lots of bathrooms and lounges!"

    Beds in double rooms on 1st floor need new mattresses. They were very creaky and uncomfortable. Well equipped kitchen but not clearly organised. Dishwasher needed salt and rinse agent. Loved the kitchen table- very spacious and a perfect place to gather. Smell of damp in front lounge on right as you enter. We put the dehumidifier in there which did help but this may need looking at. Would recommend the house to friends and family. Thank you!

    Hi Malcolm, Thank you for taking the time to provide some feedback. We will certainly take a look at the mattresses, and also providing some labels for the kitchen cupboards! We provide all in one dishwasher tablets that contain salt and rinse agent, hence the lack of both in the dishwasher; I think the problem may have been that the dishwasher heating element had failed; and has since been replaced. I'm so sorry if that caused an issue for you. We have had a damp issue in on of the front lounges historically; and we were assured it was resolved by improving the guttering, however we will take another look at it. Thanks again.

  • "It looks like a poor DIY job with uneven and loose floors, ill-fitting doors, windows that don't open and features that don't work."

    Of particular note are the toilet that overflows on every flush with the water running into the boiler and the tripping hazards at changes of floor covering. The whole property is furnished with economy standard and uncomfortable seating and beds. The standard of the kitchen equipment was poor. The kitchen table cannot be levelled on the uneven floor, which is a danger. Both staircases breach building regulations, which is patently a danger. The soil pipe crossing the back door has a leak. The paving in the back yard, once we had cleaned the excessive bird mess, has too many tripping hazards and loose slabs. The barbeque, being so dirty and rusty, was unusable. The matress did not fit the cot provided. We were a party of four genearations. The part of the family with young children left after three days and other adults left early having become frustrated by the condition of the property.

  • "We had a wonderful time at Maples, it was perfect for our large family gathering which included 5 children ranging in age from 8 to 14 years."

    The house is clean, comfortable and very well equipped with lots of space to accomodate everyone. It is in a very good location - just a quick 5 minute walk from the sea front and town of Hunstanton which has plentiful activities for all ages. The owners of they property were really helpful and the basket of goodies for our arrival was a lovely touch and very welcome. The only negative I could think of was the bathroom window in oriental bedroom didnt open and the bed made a bit of a noise when you turned over. However, these were very minor things and in no way detracted from our enjoyment of the property. It is the first time any of us had been Haunstanton and we all impressed with both the place and the house. Would definately recommend to others.

    Thank you for your lovely comments we are so glad that you enjoyed staying at Maples and hopefully made lots of happy memories. We will certainly check out the window and bed, Come back anytime. Victoria and Chris Property Owner

  • "Thank you for helping us make such wonderful memories!"

    We are a group of Mums with all our kids ages ranging from 7 - 10 and every year we have a ‘Big House’ trip where we all hang out together, enjoy sharing big communal meals and we always go places with lots of local beaches to blow away the cobwebs and for the kids to enjoy the outdoors. This year did not disappoint!!! In fact we all agree it was the best yet!!! With the 2 lounges, the games room & the big kitchen table we were able to all be together and also have space to spread when we needed it! With that many children we need space! We especially liked that all the rooms had their own shower facilities, that we could access the back in our soggy and dirty beach stuff and use the utility room to get everything washed without sand ending up in our rooms, and that the house was really warm and cosy. After a day at the beach we made use of board games, quiet spaces to read, movies on in different rooms, and the pool table was a great hit! Kitchen facilities were great, especially the giant pots, dishwasher, and the all important coffee machine! Mum heaven! The locality was amazing. Walking into town was easy, and the beach at Old Hunstanton was gorgeous with many other classic Norfolk spots nearby such as Holkham, Wells-next-the-Sea, and Sandringham (which has an awesome play area and you only pay for parking!). Unfortunately we didn’t realise you need to book the oasis pool that has slides etc for fun, but instead we found a private hire pool which was reasonably priced and worth the value as we had it all to ourselves! We will definitely be back!!! Thanks

    The house was fantastic, it had everything we needed and the location was perfect. We were 7 adults, 5 children and 2 dogs and we didn’t get under each other’s feet once as there is so much space in the house. The room for the dogs was great and there were stair gates on each set of stairs (top and bottom) which was perfect for our 2 year old. The welcome hamper was such a lovely touch as was the information pack and when we had a little issue with the shower it was sorted the same day. Chris and Victoria were super quick at getting back to me and really lovely and helpful. Booking through Sykes Cottages was easy and we had all relevant information way before our stay. We’ll definitely be recommending Maples to family and friends and I’m sure we’ll be there again soon.

Just a short walk from the cliffs and the beach again ideal. As a group of friends we only stayed for two nights but we all agreed we would have wished we could have stayed for longer and certainly will be rebooking . the size of the property is just phenomenal an Aladdin’s cave of comfortable rooms - it would be perfect for larger family get togethers .

The property

Situated in the award-winning seaside town of Hunstanton, near a sandy beach, is this remarkable, Victorian home, Maples.

This spacious, semi-detached home retains a lot of its original features, making it a charming getaway for family and friends.

Be greeted by off-road parking or leave your vehicle on the unrestricted roadside before exploring Maples marvellous interior.

Stepping through the porch, open the royal navy door into the long hallway, where you can kick off your boots and hang your coats.

On your left, discover the first of two sitting rooms where you can sprawl on the comfy sofas as the internet connected TV with Bluetooth soundbar does the entertaining.

Escape the group and curl up in front of the real-flame gas fire in the sitting room adjacent; enjoy a much-loved book, away from the chatter and laughter.

At the back of the home, you will find the large kitchen/ diner, here budding chefs can make use of the range cooker and microwave to whip up tasty delights and after there is a dishwasher for a fuss-free clean.

Take a seat at the grand dining table, where you can tuck-into mouth-watering dishes and laugh about the adventures so far.

On sunny days, the beach is only 450 meters away, where your furry friends can stretch their legs as you bask in the sun.

The property also offers a dog’s room, so our canine companion can sleep in his own bed and enjoy the wash station after a day at the beach.

For those with limited mobility, there is a ground-floor twin bedroom (zip/link, can be Super-king on request), as well as a ground-floor shower room to make their stay as easy as possible!

As the sky grows dark, climb up the striped stairs to discover a quaint study with a selection of books, an ideal spot for the little ones to listen to some bedtime reading.

The older children may wish to escape the adults and head to the top floor, where they can play pool, air hockey, and unwind on the corner sofa with a Nintendo Switch.

The top floor is also home to a charming twin bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and to find another twin bedroom, head downstairs to the first floor.

The adults can rest their head in a super-king-size (zip/link, can be twin on request), a king-size or a double, all with storage and en-suites.

Take advantage of your idyllic position between Hunstanton and Old Hunstanton and take a scenic walk to the nearby Old Hunstanton Beach to discover colourful cliffs, rock pools, and swimming opportunities between tide times; your four legged friends are welcome north of the promenade all year round.

In the afternoon, head to Hunstanton Golf Club to test your swing, or why not visit SEA LIFE to see a range of sea creatures?

Be sure to get up close to The Wreck of The Steam Trawler Sheraton, to marvel at a fishing boat, which was used in WWI and WWII.

Refuel after a day of adventure with a bite to eat at one of the delicious restaurants that decorate the high-street, or if you'd prefer to dine from the comfort of your holiday home, pick-up fresh fish and chips or an Indian takeaway!

Jump in the car to explore the gems of Norfolk, including Titchwell Marsh, where you can unwind on a sandy beach and admire birdlife or tour the 400 acres of Sandringham Estate to see the spectacular country house.

Bring your bike along to soak in sights on the National Cycle Route 1, test your swing at the expansive grounds of King's Lynn Golf Club or indulge in treatments at Imagine Health & Spa.

For long-lasting memories with your loved ones, secure a stay at Maples.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £900.
