  • "Very impressed with The Glasshouse, Hunstanton."

    Very well equipped beautiful house, everything that you would need was provided. Great position, with access to all amenities on the seaside front. Very near bus routes to visit sites along the coast, some great walks nearby for all abilities. The local theatre was excellent, well worth a visit. The local eateries all good value and excellent quality. I would score our week at The Glasshouse 10 out of 10.

    Thank you for providing your lovely feedback, we are glad you enjoyed your holiday with us and your night at the theatre. Really look forward to welcoming you back. Property Owner

  • "Whilst one could have quibbles about some minor issues and details around the house, the Glass House is an extremely well located and comfortable holiday home and was more than spacious enough for our party of 8 ( 5 adults and 3 children)."

    It was easy to arrange charging for an electric vehicle and the owner responded quickly to a minor issue we had. Overall, we were very pleased.

  • "Great place to stay."

    Excellent location for walking to most facilities. Our family group of 3 generations enjoyed the open plan downstairs design with plenty of space for cooking, dining, sitting and children’s play. Very comfortable with the 3 bathrooms and the luxury of a separate tv room off limits to the toddlers! The house was very well equipped and the owner easily reached for a couple of queries on arrival. An outdoor tap would be a great addition for use on arrival back from the beach. Also the wonderful fitted wardrobes would benefit from some shelves. Thank you- we plan to return.

  • "Lovely home, just a few issues, didn't spoil our holiday but want to be honest about what customers expect."

    Toilet seat in one of the ensuites was broken. The taps in the downstairs toilet are on the wrong way round. The showers do have mould in them which is easily removed. The taps have limescale on them which is also easily removed.I couldn't find any dusters or a full size sweeping brush to clean, so had to make do with the small one. The vacuum cleaner works but needs a good clean as it smells when you use it. It looks as if the cleaners only do a quick job and when we had to be out for 10am and can't get in until 5pm they have plenty of time.

  • "An excellent property - very well equipped, very comfortable, extremely clean."

    It would appear that no expense has been spared in developing this property and we benefited from this. Sometimes listings can exaggerate but this listing was correct - it is only 5 minutes walk to the beach and 2 minutes to the nearest shop. We contacted the owner when the barbecue gas cylinder ran out - within half an hour, the cylinder was replaced - excellent service during our visit. Thank you!

  • "Good location, you can walk into town and to the beach."

    There’s a Premier mini supermarket round the corner. The house is roomy comfortable and the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need. Hunstanton is a lovely resort and there are plenty of places not too far away to visit. Sandringham Estate and house is a 10 minutes drive and well worth a visit. Brancaster beach is really good, go early and park up for the day. There’s a good cafe and toilets at the beach. Really enjoyed the house and Norfolk.

    Other than a few areas of general maintenance probably not obvious to the cleaners. We had a good stay the property was well equipped and in a good location

    The location was perfect as we could easily walk into Hunstanton and the recreation ground was only 2 minutes away so the youngsters could go and let off steam and the dog could have a run.

  • "The Glass house was well equipped with all the facilities required the location is ideal in Hunstanton for accessing the town and its many activities the promenade is only a short stroll away whilst all the other areas of North Norfolk are within easy access."

    We had a fantastic week in the glasshouse very comfortableI even met the owner on departure who cut his own grass which is a nice touch. The only slight issue was the access to the driveway which is heavily gravelled and was quite difficult but the owner advises us that this is to be replaced very soon. All in all an excellent holiday experience.

Sitting within the award-winning coastal town of Hunstanton, known locally as 'Sunny Hunny' for its breath-taking sunsets and scenery, there's no better base from which to explore this corner of East Anglia.

Park up on the private driveway, with plenty of room between here and the roadside for the whole group, before stepping into the hallway and setting down your belongings as you explore this marvel of a holiday home.

The open-plan living space is a true spectacle to be seen, with room for the whole group to gather around the granite top dining table and toast to a terrific holiday.

The contemporary-styled kitchen along with the utility room host everything you could need to prepare family-favourite meals, with plenty of preparation space for the chef of the group to make the most of the utensils and appliances at hand.

At the rear of the room rests three colourful sofas, where the little ones can snuggle down each evening and while away the hours with the use of the gaming facilities, whilst the rest of the group make the most of the refreshing coastal breeze out in the enclosed garden.

For a family film night, make your way into the snug, with an impressive corner sofa offering room for everyone to unwind for a relaxing night in.

Spend a day in Heacham with its golfing opportunities, beautiful lavender fields and another fabulous beach, providing something for every taste, or make your way to the medieval port of King's Lynn with its historic buildings and marvellous architecture, selection of museums such as True's Yard Fisherfolk Museum and the Lynn Museum, and even more eateries to take your pick from to celebrate that special occasion.
