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. Coming and going with the tide, the beach 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. Happisburgh lighthouse, numerous stately homes, Horsey windpump, 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!
