  • "Pretty awful."

    Had I known it was semi-detached I would not have booked - I go on holiday to get away from other peoples diy, noise, gaze etc. The sea is visible - just - from parts of the bungalow - after you look past the Indian restaurant opposite - the cooking fumes from which mean opening any of the front windows is not pleasant for most of the day and evening. The litter bin directly opposite the lounge does offer good entertainment in the mornings as the seagulls skilfully get out all the previous evenings take-away remains and see what’s left for them - sadly the rubbish stays in the road. The kitchen facilities are very poor - the fridge is on its last legs keeping things vaguely cool at best - it also tips forward when opened. Very very limited cooking facilities - should be made clear there isn’t a normal cooker or hob. The ‘sofa’ was very poor - a series of cubes that drift apart as soon as you sit on them - my back soon let me know just how poor quality the sofa and bed were. The bungalow is very small - how on earth 6 people would fit in I have no idea - I found the bungalow very cluttered and 8 highly scented reed diffusers in the small space were sickeningly overpowering . The bungalow is a goldfish bowl - wide open to the close gaze of the public from 2 sides and neighbours at the back - there is no privacy at all. Curtains would help in the back bedroom as the streetlight shines straight through the Venetian blinds at night. On arrival - stickers on the doors made clear that the bungalow is ‘under CCTV surveillance’ - why? - surely this is something that should be declared and explained as part of the property details? I have never stayed in a Sykes Cottage under CCTV surveillance before - it was quite a nasty surprise. I wonder if there are cameras inside too? The fact that my movements were being monitored - by I knew not whom or why - along with the very dodgy parking arrangements - not somewhere I would go in the dark - being at the property made me feel very unsafe and uncomfortable indeed. The ‘welcome notes’ made a big thing of what to do in the event of problems with the neighbours and ‘forbid’ you being outside the property between 10pm and 6am - a really dreadful atmosphere to set. I abandoned my stay at this property half way through - such was the level of discomfort I felt just being there. I have awarded one star for the fruit basket and the fact that the bungalow wasn’t dirty - it wasn’t spotless by any means but it was ok. However, the negative aspects far far outweigh anything positive and I would not recommend the property in any way.

    Wifi full signal for 10min then weak for the rest of the day, a small table & some folding chairs for the patio would be nice, but a lovely holiday will book again next year

  • "Directions to cottage were misleading."

    Communal garden not private. Parking awkward. Kitchen facilities were not good. Not good value. Went to Ash farm last year and was brilliant and cheaper.

    Felt like we were sitting in a gold fish bowl in the lounge everyone looking in as they passed when every other window had blinds also parking a little dodge as there is no official parking there was a time restriction on the main road when we were told there was parking as we are both disabled

The property

This delightful bungalow sits at the edge of the grounds of St Edmund’s Church in the centre of Hunstanton's conservation area.

Situated just paces from a range of amenities and a sandy beach, with outstanding views overlooking the sea, See The Sea is a magnificent choice for up to six guests looking to escape to this coastal region of Norfolk.

After a day meandering the coastline, look forward to curling up in the lounge and catching up on your favourite shows from the Smart TV, or simply gaze out the window and admire the distant sea views.

Move into the kitchen, where you can rustle up a hearty dish, assisted by a range of appliances, before settling down at the dining table and enjoying the company of each other.

This Hunstanton cottage offers two tasteful bedrooms, including a family room with king-size bed and two singles, along with a king-size, each neatly presented with ample storage.

Start the morning with a refreshing rinse in the bathroom, choosing between the bath or shower over, before wandering the nearby supermarket and picking up the ingredients for a big breakfast.

Less than half a mile away lies the golden sand of Hunstanton Beach, offering a combination of sand, shingle, and white striped cliffs.

Take a short walk to the award-winning Esplanade Gardens which are located atop of the red and white striped cliffs of Old Hunstanton before relaxing upon the sandy trails of the beach.

Refuel with some tasty fare at Henry's, voted the best fish and chips in West Norfolk or choose from several takeaways nearby to be enjoyed in your new home-from-home.

Continue along to RSPB Titchwell Marsh, a lovely sandy beach and nature reserve where you can hire binoculars to observe the surrounding wildlife and birds such as the Marsh Harrier and Avocet.

Hunstanton town centre provides a choice of shops and eateries, ranging from restaurants to tea rooms and takeaways.

Head out to the medieval town of King's Lynn and explore the many historical buildings, rich heritage, and some excellent markets.

For entertainment, why not catch the evening matinee at The Princess Theatre, offering a variety of shows and concerts and only paces away from the property.

However you choose to spend your time, return to the comfort of See The Sea and recharge your batteries.
