Seaview Villa more than lives up to its name. This gorgeous period property is only 100 metres from the beach at Sheringham - one of Norfolk's favourite beaches - and within walking distance of cafes, shops and fantastic pubs like The Lobster and The Crown Inn. There is lots of space to accommodate up to 10 guests in five very comfortable bedrooms, with a layout that is perfect for big families, extended families, or groups of friends.
Regular visitors to Sheringham will appreciate why it is one of Britain's favourite holiday destinations. However, if you're a first time visitor, here are some highlights you won't want to miss. Sheringham's seafront should always be the first port of call once you've parked the car and left your bags at your cottage. A lengthy promenade backs the Blue Flag beach with traditional beach huts in ice-cream coloured shades at one end. Follow the coastal footpath for breathtaking views (literally in winter, if there's an easterly breeze coming off the North Sea!). Sheringham Park is north of the town, where the National Trust carefully manages coastal walks, woodland and landscaped gardens. Golfers can enjoy a round at Sheringham Golf Club, and the opportunities for fishing, cycling and surfing are plentiful.
Sheringham is packed with amenities to meet your every need, including a thriving Saturday market held all year round and an additional Wednesday market from May to November. There are pubs, coffee shops and tea rooms, as well as an excellent variety of places selling fresh seafood whether you want to buy it to cook yourself, get it from a beachfront shack to eat on the sand, or enjoy a fine dining experience.
Local attractions include Cromer pier, Wroxham Minature Worlds, Mundesley Beach, the North Norfolk Steam Railway, beWILDerwood, Holkham Hall, Happisburgh Lighthouse, Felbrigg Hall, and Walsingham Abbey. Spend happy days exploring pretty towns and villages like Wells-next-the-Sea, Burnham Market and Holt, or exploring historic Norfolk. There are no limits on the amount of fun you can have when you stay at Seaview Villa.
