Tides - Self catering holiday cottage in Bacton, Norfolk, England - Sleeps 4
Tides is ideally located in an enviable position overlooking the Norfolk coastline on a pet friendly, peaceful holiday park. This lovely holiday home sits in the small village of Bacton with direct access onto the sandy beach which is just yards away from the front door.
At Tides you have miles of wonderful coastline on your doorstep with fantastic scenic walks to enjoy. With thirteen acres of grassland, the park is suitable for pets and there is a well equipped children’s playground in the village at the end of our road (five to ten minutes walk away).
Tides accommodates four guests in two bedrooms with modern accommodation that is all on one level, making it suitable for everyone from the elderly to small children. It affords views over the park and beyond to the sea and provides a peaceful retreat to relax and enjoy the sea air and all the coastline has to offer. It is also an excellent base from which to explore the area beyond.
The beach is just yards away from Tides and is accessed via steps that are within a short stroll. The beach comes and goes with the tide but manages to escape the crowds as there is no public access from the village. On a sunny day, you could not wish for a more relaxing and peaceful setting and during the winter months, the sea still has much to offer, with fantastic tides that come crashing against the sea walls and bracing coastal walks to enjoy.
For those who want to venture further afield, there are plenty of things to see and do in this area. The Norfolk Broads are just a short drive away, as is the historic town of Norwich with its beautiful cathedral and the seaside towns of Sheringham, Cromer and Great Yarmouth. Stow Windmill, numerous stately homes, Happisburgh lighthouse, family theme parks and much more are also within easy reach. The area is also great for bird watching, fishing, walking and spotting the occasional seal bobbing in the waves!

Reviews and Testimonials for Tides
Here's some snippets from our guest book:
We arrived in the dark to a warm and homely welcome. Lots of lovely walks along the seafront and on the beach with the seaspray flying and the cold wind blowing. Great base for visiting Norfolk and we all enjoyed Halloween at Blickling Hall. Sunrises were beautiful from your lovely home. Starfish washed up on the beach too. Thank you.

First time in Bacton staying here, fantastic! Kids loved staying near the beach. Beautiful clean cottage, excellent location, gorgeous views - plenty to see and do. Would love to come back.

We needed to relax and relax we did. So peaceful and quiet with a beach almost to ourselves; Tides is a beautiful place to stay. Our Husky is 8 months old and he loved it; a dogs paradise to say the least. The accommodation is well kept and very clean; just as I like things and attention to detail spot on. The seals were very friendly too! Thank you for a restful, peaceful holiday. A,S,O & C August 12
We have had an absolutely fantastic time. It is our first holiday with our 8 month old - so we will most certainly remember it. The accommodation was absolutely brilliant - spotlessly clean and you had thought of everything we could possibly need. We were also blessed with sunshine! Thank you - we really relaxed, it was perfect. We'll be back. M,K & R July 12
What a lovely place! Beautiful, well equipped chalet and in a stunning peacful location. Everyone on site very friendly; residents and visitors. Our two year old loved introducing himself to everybody. So much to do locally, we'll have to come back to do everything that we didn't manage to fit in. Thanks very much. E,A & Thomas, North Wales June 12
We have had a great few days. Lovely chalet and even the weather was kind to us. Wonderful visit to Hillside Animal Sanctuary. P & J Yorkshire June 12
Cottage superb and couldn't wish for anything better. Had all that we required. Excellent location for days out. Our dogs loved to run on the beach, just a shame the weather wasn't better! Thank you very much, looking forward to our next stay here. K,B,G, Max & Ruby. Kent May 12
Just like to say thank you for our lovely weekend break. Your personal touches made it very welcoming especially the little fish ice cubes and loving the stylish black heater. Nice hearing the tide instead of traffic, very peaceful and tranquil. It was a lovely break for our two year anniversary and a pleasure to be the first to stay. Many Thanks C & N Essex
