  • "The property is ideally situated in Hunstanton, 10min."

    walk to beach. Shops and restaurants, cafes just a walk away, and Sainsburys just across the road. The Hidaway Cottage is very clean, modern and well maintained, ideal for my wife and I and our Cavapoo puppy.

  • "A quaint holiday home, warm and comfortable."

    Quite a few ornaments about, if going with small children may be worth having a run round and putting them out of reach or in drawers to avoid breakages. Mattress a little uncomfortable as used to memory foam but was able to cope with it for a week, bedding was so soft and warm. Daughter used both bunk beds, she said they were both comfy. Shower had good pressure and temp was brill, I love a hot shower, hubby prefers his cooler, could've spent ages in it, does get quite steamed up, we just opened the sky light to avoid condensation build up. The Towels were so nice and thick, quite a luxury. Lounge was comfy, heating easy to use, looking at getting hive for our home now. Kitchen had everything you could need and the little welcome pack was a lovely touch. We went with a golden retriever, he settled really quickly, his first time away from home, everywhere is dog friendly and he absolutely loved his walks near the cliffs. Really close to shops and beach, we even used just eat and the delivery driver easily found the property. Would definitely return and recommend to others :)

  • "A great little cottage."

    The entrance lane is a little 'down market' (not the owners fault), as is the entrance gate, however, the cottage was immaculate and beautifully presented for us. Don't let the first impressions put you off, and we certainly didn't have any cleaning issues as some past visitors, it was spotless. Great to have our own parking space, free parking is like gold dust we found, even in January. Inside, the cottage is fabulous. Loved the decor and beach/love themed wall art, so homely. Warm (easy to boost the heating), cosy, amazingly well equipped - and the softest towels ever. Sainsbury's is literally over the road, as well as a local greengrocer and a pet shop. So handy for everything. As another reviewer has mentioned, the shower is bijou, but glorious hot water on tap. Our little cockerpoo absolutely loved the wide open beaches to run on and the big soft rug to curl up on after a shower and dry off. Everywhere is dog friendly from shops to pubs, even a smart hotel restaurant. Nice welcome gifts on arrival - thank you Andy and Penny (and Robbie) - and we had a fabulous stay. Our first visit to Norfolk, definitely not our last!

  • "Fabulous cottage, close to beech, shops and bars."

    Very well equipped, warm comfortable and clean. Some personal touches that make your stay special. Owner got in touch to ensure all well which shows they care about their rentals. Beech was lovely with lots of space for the dog to run. Parking space great. Couldn’t fault anything. Fabulous and well worth a visit.

  • "Clean, comfortable, nicely decorated, well equipped, central position, near the sea, great walks, plenty of good local restaurants."

    Location would be best described as down the lane, opposite Sainsburys.

  • "A lovely quirky cottage perfect for us as a couple with our dog."

    Great location and nicely decorated. The cottage was exactly as the photographs on the website. As it was end of season the property does need a deep clean. I was getting something I dropped under the sofa and it was full of dust and an old pigs ear chew (not ours) so obviously not had a proper clean. The lounge windows need a deep clean also to remove condensation mould. There were some dead flies on the kitchen window sill too. It may not have had this because it has been booked out constantly. We would come back if this was done. Lovely card welcoming us along with milk, biscuits and dog treats. Thank you

    Wendy, Thank you for your comprehensive review, we have passed your comments on to our cleaners now that we have received them. Property Owner

  • "A gorgeous little cottage, located right in the centre of Hunstanton, with parking, which was a real bonus and a lovely outside area to chill in the evenings over a glass of wine."

    Inside, everything was lovely, with so many little touches which were very much appreciated, like leaving, tea and coffee, a welcome card, dog bowls and even a treat for the dog! The cottage really has everything you need for a lovely stay, and is decorated to make you feel like you are at the seaside. Location brilliant and just a very short walk to the beach and front, as well as a Sainsburys just a hundred yards away. The hosts were great and responded to requests really quickly! All in all a fantastic week. We will definitely be back.

  • "We had a great week at Hideaway Cottage despite very changeable weather."

    It’s in a good location in the town yet tucked away so it’s really quiet. Sainsbury’s store was one minute walk away and parking also very close, cost for the week in the Valentine Road car park was under £9.00. Location is handy for restaurants and the seafront. The cottage is very well equipped which we appreciated and it’s nicely decorated and furnished, bedrooms are small but very comfortable. The location is ideal for exploring the North Norfolk area.

The property

A delightful bolthole for couples or families of four in pursuit of an escape to the coast, Hideaway Cottage can be found resting in an idyllic position in the award-winning town of Hunstanton in Norfolk.

Tucked away down a quiet alley, yet benefiting from being within walking distance of a wide range of amenities and attractions, this wonderful end-terrace makes the perfect choice for your seaside adventure.

Unload your car right outside the front door before parking up at the roadside or the nearby car park, kicking off your boots in the convenient porch before soaking up the splendour of your home-from-home.

Venture past the cloakroom which hosts a handy washing machine and a freezer too, before stepping into the galley kitchen to prepare a delicious feast for the group; modest but well-equipped with everything you could possibly need, be sure to sample some fresh seafood for a true taste of the coast.

Take your dining experience into the living/dining room, styled with a charming country theme while the rest of the property echoes a nautical aura, here you can toast to a terrific holiday around the table before snuggling up on the plush corner sofa for the evening.

Move up to the first floor to find the two well-presented bedrooms of a master double and a bunk room, suitable for either children or adults, both boasting a charming interior and a good amount of storage space for your personal belongings, as well as being served by the sparkling family shower room.

Begin your days out in the enclosed garden sipping on your morning coffee while your canine companion stretches their legs, taking your pick from either the sun trap of the patio or the lovely gravelled area, a wonderful area for alfresco dining.

Step out the front door and take the short stroll into the centre of the town to be met by a whole host of wonders; indulge in a tasty breakfast in one of the eateries scattered along the seafront including restaurants, pubs and cafés, or pick up some fresh ingredients for a picnic on the beach, Hunstanton being renowned for its spectacular sunsets, offering a romantic setting at any time of the year.

Make the most of your coastal location with a stroll along the traditional promenade lined with funfair rides, golf, a leisure centre, a sea life centre and so much more, ending your day with some fish and chips before taking a walk towards Old Hunstanton to find colour cliff faces and rock pools where you can spot rich marine life.

Spend time soaking up the sun on the sandy beach, with plenty of opportunities for watersports, or take a sea tour to experience the waters in a different way, where you can embark on a seal safari whilst being surrounded by panoramic views and learning of the area's enticing history.

Bird watchers will delight at the property's close proximity to the RSPB Titchwell Marsh where bearded tits and marsh harriers nest, as well as there being another beach here with views across The Wash, making the perfect spot for a brisk stroll while the wider area of the Norfolk Coast AONB boasts so many fantastic walking and cycling routes to discover.

Venture out to King's Lynn for the day for even more history to find in the Lynn Museum and True's Yard Fisherfolk Museum, with even more eateries to take your pick from and superb shopping experiences, or journey out to discover the wider wonders of Cromer, Holt and Wisbech.

A wonderful touring base for exploring Norfolk, choose Hideaway Cottage for your next escape to East Anglia.
