    Stunning views, and perfect location. The little village had everything you would need. Hope to return one day…

  • "We enjoyed our stay very much here though with a few reservations."

    The location cannot be faulted in its superb setting by the beach. An incredible view which could have been helped by a squeezee or something to clean the windows, which we wouldn’t have minded doing. We thought the property could have been cleaned better and found a few cobwebs about as well as the carpet not vacuumed well with nail clippings by the bed in the main bedroom. The kitchen was adequately equipped though one of the saucepans needs throwing out as the black lining was badly affected. Also a smaller non stick frying pan would be good. We found the property reasonably comfortable though the sofa by the window is badly sagging probably due to so many people having sat there to admire the view. We ate out mostly and would recommend the Kingfisher Cafe. We had breakfasts there and Sunday lunch, which for £10 was superb. Great friendly staff. If you fancy Chinese food the Oriental Garden at Bacton is only 5 minutes away and does takeaway as well as dine in. I would have put this information in the visitors book but there wasn’t one. Not much of a welcome pack which is unusual these days. Just a few teabags and sugar but no milk which would have been nice after a long journey. We didn’t go far as time passed pleasantly looking out at the view. In spite of our reservations, which wouldn’t take much fixing, we enjoyed our stay here. A very quiet getaway from it place.

  • "Amazing location, very cosy and comfortable bungalow."

    Great for the dogs with large secure garden and beach access outside the gate (be aware there are dog restrictions from 1st May to end Sept, although you can walk 200 yards along the coast path to the unrestricted section). Bacton woods a lovely walk if you want a change from the beach. Great chip shop over the road, and lovely welcome and food at Poachers Pocket along the beach. Only thing I would suggest was missing is a dustpan and brush - sometimes easier than getting the hoover out. Also perhaps a folder with some local knowledge, places to visit, chip shop closing times etc (maybe because we were out of season but 7pm on a Thursday caught us out - pub to the rescue). But all in all, a great place to stay

  • "You know that you've struck gold when you would be happy to live in the place that you're staying."

    Seaclose is clean, smart, warm and comfortable. Not only is it in an amazing position on the coastal path, only feet from the beach, and with a great shop and very, very nice fish and chip restaurant/shop a literal 2 minute walk away, but it serves as a perfect base from which to explore the surrounding area. We stayed at Seaclose with our two dogs, so the vast garden was perfect and our elderly Westie found much to interest her and was happy to explore the perimeter fence in great detail. She is a determined, if a little less-able, walker these days, so a circuit of the garden was ideal exercise for her. In short, Seaclose is a wonderful place to stay and I can't thank Teresa enough for allowing us the privilege of taking it over for a week. I wish it could have been longer.

  • "Location is brilliant for the beach and especially if you are a dog owner, walks within either direction, go on for miles."

    Local shop across the road well stocked and a Post Office. Fish and chip shop next door to shop was very good also. Good accommodation and we found the bed very comfortable. Large enclosed garden good for dogs and children. Even though there was only 2 of us( plus a dog), we would have preferred a couple of more plates and larger bowls for pasta etc and a bit more cutlery. There is 4 of each. Certainly not a complaint just a suggestion. We have already recommended this to some friends, who have booked to go soon.

    Ideal for the dogs with a big garden, they can also meet everyone who walks past, you can walk them miles along the beach if you wanted to. It’s ideally placed so you can walk to the poachers pocket pub for a meal and drinks. There is also a chip shop and cafe across the road, and the shop is very close too. The lighthouse pub is a short drive away. We had a relaxing 2 weeks and would thoroughly recommend it.

  • "Arrived with food for fridge and freezer for week, to find fridge dirty and freezer box completely iced up."

    Cutlery and plates dirty and crumbs in cupboards. Spent two hours cleaning. Hairs in bathroom. Main bedroom smelt of dogs. Next day found dog poo in garden. Two days later hoovered floors, to find lots of dog hairs in carpets, which I hoovered up and left in a bag for owner. We did not use any of cupboards and drawers for our belongings, and only washed up crockery and cutlery that we would be using. In sykes information it mentioned, cushions,books, games, dvds, oven gloves etc. would be removed from properties, this was not the case, there was plenty of these items. Due to covid we thought extra cleaning would be done. Informed owner, who said these complaints were not covid related. Apart from all this, we had a lovely week weather-wise, and the location is perfect.

  • "A very warm, cosy and comfortable cottage, with a superb outlook over the sea."

    We will really miss that super view! there was a good sized, fully fenced in garden, great for just sitting in and looking out to sea, and also just the job for children or dogs to play in. The bungalow contained all you could want for a holiday, and the chocolates and milk awaiting our arrival were greatly appreciated. Books, TV, DVD, games etc were all provided, in case the weather turns wet.There were no wi-fi or washing machine, but who needs those when you're on holiday?! The double bed was very comfortable - very difficult to drag yourself away from in the morning! The local area had a good general store, a cafe and an excellent fish and chip shop, all within a couple of minutes walk. Also there were lots of interesting places to visit locally, including boat trips and self drive boat hire on the nearby Norfolk Broads. If you enjoy seafood, a visit to nearby Happisburgh is essential, where a local shop is crammed with all sorts of delicious seafood, including Cromer Crabs.We thoroughly recommend "Seaclose", and hope to visit again in the future.

  • "Just spent an amazing week at Seaclose and despite the really windy conditions we felt cosy and safe inside the cottage."

    The cottage did shake when the tide was in and the massive waves hit the seawall but amazing to sit safely indoors and listen to it. Not sure I'd like it quite so much in the summer as the Norfolk Coastal path runs alongside the garden so people can see straight in to the cottage but not a problem in a windy March as the few people who were walking past were tucked up inside their hoods. However garden is good size and nice and secure so we could let the dogs out for a run without fear of them getting out. Cottage is well equipped and the local paper, chocolates and milk on arrival were much appreciated. Did have an issue with the boiler during our stay but phone call to the owner resulted in engineer attending within a few hours to fix it. Would go again - thank you

  • "Had a lovely week at Seaclose with the kids and dog."

    Perfect seaside location, great to be so close to the water to be able to see and hear the waves rolling in. Had good weather so were able to swim in the sea and make good use of the beach. You do need to check the tides though if planning some time on the beach as at high tide the sea is all the way in to the sea defence wall. Walcott is small, but there's a well-stocked shop, lovely cafe and chippy and great food at Poacher's Pocket pub (dog friendly and 10 mins walk along the seafront). Excellent location too for travelling around Norfolk, particularly enjoyed Happisburgh beach and lighthouse just down the road. Accommodation is comfortable and clean and tidy. It is fairly basic, however I wasnt expecting luxury from either the description of the property or the price we payed. Location would attract us back to Seaclose in the future.

    Ramp to the beach was slippery so care is needed and access only available at low tide unless you walk along the sea wall for 500 yards.

Great place which we will return to and would thoroughly recommend.

    Fabulous views and good garden for the dog to rule for a week. Good parking. Two mattresses on top of one another on the double bed made sleep difficult, the only good thing was they made the view from bed magnificent. The mattresses on the bunk beds also need replacing. Three light bulbs not working, 1 tea towel for the week, two bath towels for a week? The cottage would benefit from a guest folder with information, (like the drawer in the bed which held more tea towels which we only discovered on our last day. ) We enjoyed out holiday but felt more could be done for little expense to make the cottage outstanding.

    It was fabulous hearing the waves crashing on the beach outside. The cottage looked lovely on first appearance and had all the basics you needed. If I'm being really picky, there was only one tea-towel, one kitchen sponge and one toilet roll. This could be a problem if a family had booked it with a couple of children. We also noticed some damp with mould patches in the corner of the main bedroom. I'm sure it's unavoidable given the location but wouldn't be good for guests with allergies.

The property

Set just a few yards from the beach, this detached wooden cottage is located in the seaside village of Walcott near to North Walsham in Norfolk.

All on the ground floor, this comfortable cottage is perfect for a small family looking to spend time on the beach.

This Norfolk coastal cottage has sea views from most rooms and features a comfortable sitting room, a fitted kitchen and two bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with bunks, a great place for the kids to retreat to.

Outside this cottage are a private patio area and a large lawned garden which looks directly on to the beach, a wonderful spot for a morning coffee or an evening drink as the children and dogs play in safety.

The village of Walcott is popular with holidaymakers and contains a couple of shops and a pub.

Either side of Walcott are the resort villages of Happisburgh and Mundesley, whilst a few miles inland is the town of North Walsham with a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants.

Take a day trip to the Norfolk Broads or drive down to Norwich to spend a day visiting the cathedrals or indulging in some retail therapy.

A lovely beachfront cottage, perfect for a Norfolk coastal holiday all year round.

About the location


North Walsham 6 miles; Cromer 14 miles; Norwich 18 miles.

Walcott is a lovely coastal village that sits right in the middle of the Norfolk coastline, with many small and friendly coastal villages nearby; Bacton where the ruins of Bromholm Priory and Bacton Woods can be found, Happisburgh with its impressive lighthouse, and Mundesley with its fine sandy beaches are to name but a few. The name Walcott is derived from the Celtic word Walecote, which means "village by the wood". It is an ideal place for walking, cycling, horse riding, fishing, bird watching or simply relaxing and enjoying the many views. Walcott is also a great location for exploring the beautiful scenery of the Norfolk coast, as well as the famous Norfolk Broads. Further inland there are plenty of famous National Trust properties to visit, such as Blickling, Felbrigg and Holkham Halls, or why not visit the historic city of Norwich, with its beautiful Norman Cathedral and Castle, and of course spend your money in the many shops, pubs and restaurants on offer.
