  • "This is this nicest cottage we have stayed in!"

    It was perfect for us. The beds are so comfortable and everywhere was clean. The kitchen was very well equipped. The location was so peaceful but near to everything we needed. The beach is fabulous, but it is a steep walk! It was a perfect base to return to and relax with a hot drink after a chilly explore on the beach. We would love to return!

    Hi, thank you for your kind comments. We really hope to see you again here soon. Property Owner

  • "We recently stayed at the Lobster Pot and had a few issues with the property which Sykes were extremely quick in sorting out for us."

    As stated by other reviews the door is very difficult to use & as suggested by someone else who had stayed before us and had left a note, we used the kitchen door instead. We had no phone signal so used our phone through whatsapp whilst in the property. Obviously this is not the fault of the owner, but if we had not been able to get into the property, I don't know what we would have done. We could not find out how to switch on the towel rail and had to get in touch with Sykes for advice and it was dealt with extremely efficiently. It would have been helpful for clear instructions to be left in a prominent place on how to use the equipment in the property instead of us finding a biscuit tin without a label at the bottom of a drawer in the kitchen on our last day there.

  • "Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely bungalow, my friend and I have really enjoyed our weeks holiday."

    We are both disabled and therefore just wanted to bring a few points to your attention.. On the first day we had great difficulty opening the front door, (we noted that this was also a comment which had been left in the visitor book) luckily a neighbour was around who could help us and we used the patio door for the rest of the week. The other accessibility issue we found was that it was difficult to get down onto the lawn due to there being no handrail. When we did get down we definitely enjoyed playing with the boules set, thank you!! We found the lack of tables namely on the decking and in the lounge, quite inconvenient as we had no where to put our drinks. One of the things which attracted us to the bungalow was the lovely garden furniture for our use so it was disappointing there was only a bench outside. We did however very much enjoy our stay and I hope you don't mind me bringing these points to your attention. Best wishes Heidi Buckell

    Hello, thank you for your lovely feedback. Just to let folk know that in the garden is a 4 seater bench on the veranda, along with a large picnic table and benches in the garden, and a further 2 sun loungers. There is a suitable coffee table in the lounge to use for drinks. Hope to see you soon. Property Owner

  • "First time staying at the Lobster pot in Overstrand, the bungalow is very homely… decor and furnishings very nice, it is well equipped with everything one needs in the kitchen, very clean; bedding and towels spotless, beds extremely comfortable, we had an enjoyable and relaxing stay ."

    The only slight issue we had was that the shower was extremely hot and we couldn’t seem to reduce the setting for some reason; This may be our error of course!

    We are pleased you had an enjoyable and relaxing time. We have lowered slightly the hot water temperature. Property Owner

  • "What a lovely stay we had."

    The property was very well equipped, the owners thought of everything! Comfy beds! The enclosed garden was perfect for Oreo and we could let her out knowing she wasn't going to escape. Plenty of space for her to run around. Being able to see the sea over the trees was a bonus. Just a few minutes walk to the sandy beach with a good section that is dog friendly. It is a steep walk, but benches along the way for those that need it. Shop nearby as were cafes, restaurants and pub. About a 6 minute drive into Cromer. I wish we could have stayed longer!

    Thank you for your lovely comments. We do hope you return very soon. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay at The Lobster Pot."

    Clean and comfortable, and very convenient for the beach for dog walks. There is a little cut through, from the front garden turn left towards the end of the cul-de-sac, in the corner you'll find a pathway behind the bungalows. At the end of the path, turn left and walk along the road to the end and you are at the top of the cliff with a pathway down to the beautiful sandy beach. The dog beach is on the right side, there is a sign. It is steep coming back up! You can just see the sea from the bedrooms. The summer house was great to sit in and the scent of lavender from the garden added to the calm and peace of this great retreat.

  • "We stayed at The Lobster Pot as a couple and the property was perfect for our needs."

    However, the property does have a second bedroom with a double bed - depending on age of children this may or may not be suitable. If the house is aimed for two couples, the second bedroom ideally would have a small wardrobe rather than some of the other furniture. It was a lovely addition to have the French doors in the main bedroom which open onto a decking area and large very private garden.

  • "Lovely cosy bungalow."

    Nice furniture and well maintained. Close to sea which is great for taking dogs a walk. Outside gate ( kitchen side) large gap underneath gate so we were unable to let our dog go out in the garden unattended. Perhaps an outside side light would be useful as very dark down side entrance. Otherwise would really recommend a stay at the Lobster Pot. Thank you

  • "The lobster pot is a lovely bright, comfortable bungalow."

    It’s very clean and well equipped. In a peaceful location, 5 minutes walk to the sandy beach, which was lovely. It was very homely with lots of nice touches, Netflix, Alexa etc. The only small thing was there wasn’t a nonslip mat in the shower & the tray was pretty slippery. And one of our party was elderly and felt unsure when using it. Thank-you for a lovely break in Overstrand.

    The property is a 10 minute walk to the beach, however there is a very steep long incline to get onto the beach itself. The White Horse pub / hotel is about 15 to 20 minute walk. There is also a shop next to the pub for essentials.

    Everything you need for a self catering holiday. Fully enclosed garden, with plenty of sitting out areas Would have liked a washing line for drying dog towels and a better hoover for a dog friendly accomadation . Housekeeper does an excellent job. Guest book would be good to leave for others to read about places to visit. Great for walking to the beach and into cromer.

  • "The property was nicely decorated and furnished."

    However, we could not open the front door when we arrived and had to get a neighbour to help so used the patio doors instead. The waste water in the bathroom basin took an age to go away. We found the seating very low. The TV defeated us, we could only get BBC 1, 2 and 4. There was no handbook for the TV. And no handbook for the heating should we have needed it. There was no shaver point which did present a problem.

    Thank you for your suggests here. All manuals for the TV and other equipment is in the bottom kitchen drawer. Property Owner

    Very clean with good quality furnishings and fittings. Great to have Netflix and Alexa (a novelty for us oldies). Nice to open cupboards and find some staples there (salt, pepper, spices, vinegars etc). Good bathroom with walk-in shower; all very clean indeed. Great enclosed garden area with a covered area to sit at the bottom. Barbeque provided. Good quiet location, 10 minute walk to village and beach (very pleasant). Good food at café on the front, local pub does food too. Great value for money - a lovey restful August break.

The property

Perched on the coast in Overstrand, Norfolk is this welcoming, detached bungalow of The Lobster Pot.

A fabulous escape for a family of four's getaway, The Lobster Pot enjoys contemporary interiors that pop with colour throughout.

On arrival, you'll be relieved to uncover two off-road parking spaces, making settling in and getting unpacked hassle-free.

Progress into the tastefully appointed open-plan living space, where colourful furnishings give the space a vibrant feel.

Kick back and relax on the plush corner sofa as you enjoy a show on the TV and warm your toes by the glowing electric fire.

When you're feeling peckish, make your way around to the kitchen, where sleek cabinets offer a range of integrated appliances that are bound to please any foodie; the space also offers a handy washing machine!

When dinner has been fixed up here, tuck into it at the round dining table or, on sunny days, take it out to the back garden, where you can savour it on the decking.

After dinner, head back to the sitting area or unwind in the external snug, where plush seating can be found alongside a fridge/freezer and a tumble dryer.

As day turns to night, retreat to one of the two fabulous doubles to catch your rest, both of which enjoy access to a superbly fitted shower room, where a glass walk-in shower takes centre stage.

In the mornings, prepare a steaming cup of coffee with the property's coffee maker before heading out to the garden to rustle up an alfresco breakfast on the barbecue.

Walk down to the beach and soak up the sun as you lounge on the sand or go paddling in the turquoise waters before stopping at The White Horse for a meal with local ale; alternatively, head to the local shop to pick up any essentials for a homemade dinner.

Venture to the neighbouring town of Cromer, a place famous for its crab and seafood, which can be sampled at one of its many eateries before wandering down to the sandy shores, trying your hand at putting at The Royal Cromer Golf Club or enjoying a live show at the renowned Cromer Pier & Pavillion Theatre.

As you're within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there're plenty of opportunities for hiking, cycling, and birdwatching; the Overstrand Cliffs are point of interest, where you can soak up panoramic views of the ocean, while the Scolt head Island National Nature Reserve is within reach and is a stunning spot to visit.

There's very access from the property to numerous old historic Georgian and Victorian market towns such as Holt, Fakenham, Burnham Market, Aylsham, North Walsham, and also the historic city of Norwich of course; you'll rarely run out of things to see here!

A marvellous stay awaits at The Lobster Pot.
