  • "Perfect property."

    Loved the decor, beds were extremely comfortable. House situated in a great location, so close to everything yet still quiet so a good nights sleep had. Nice personal touches (ie Easter egg). Lovely enclosed garden for our dog.

  • "Lovely stay at The Bird House."

    The property is situated on a quiet street, a short walk from the seafront and entertainment, which was fantastic for our son. Tesco is a short walk away. We took a drive to other areas, such as Brancaster and Sheringham, but you could have a lovely time without getting in the car once. A great location for families or couples, lots to do locally and a super comfortable base to relax.

  • "Quirky, spotless and comfortable cottage with everything you could need for a comfortable holiday."

    Well placed for leaving the car behind and taking trips to local towns on the bus. Much easier than trying to park in a strange place. Would recommend.

  • "Great house with quirky decor !"

    ! Fantastic location just a few minutes walk to the town and beach, also minutes away from a large Tesco store which was really convienient. Located in a very quiet residential street with no parking issues. Also dog friendly so the enclosed garden was a massive bonus for us well as it being a nice sunny area to spend time in. Well equipped kitchen with appliacnes that looked relatively new and a good standard throughout the house. Great place to spend the week Highly recommended !

  • "We had a wonderful stay at The Bird House."

    The house is in a great location, and even with a young child in tow it was only a 5 minute walk to the beach and our favourite ice cream parlour in Hunstanton, East Coast Gelato. Being so close to the beach meant we could go everyday. The master bedroom and single room are both big enough for a travel cot. The top of the stairs is a little tricky for younger children although we managed fine and the owner kindly offered to fit an extra stair gate for us. We had no trouble with the on-street parking and always managed to park right outside the house or just 1 house away. The kitchen is really well stocked and had everything we needed. The house has a lovely homely feel to it and we may well book a stay again in the future!

  • "Lovely and clean and great position near the beach."

    Very secure garden for the dog plus lovely to sit out with a glass or two. The only negative was the beds were a bit soft and I would suggest investing in some better mattresses. Other than that it was excellent!

    Thank you for your lovely comments and feedback on the mattresses which we have taken onboard and have upgraded. Property Owner

  • "Lovely house and location, lots of great features and super clean."

    Would have liked a bigger bed in the main bedroom.

    Thank you for your lovely comments and feedback on the bed size which we have taken onboard. We replaced the double with a king in the main bedroom in the summer. Property Owner
