74 Seaview sleeps up to five guests in three bedrooms and is a single-level holiday Bungalow with, just as the name suggests, sea views, sitting on a quiet site in the Suffolk village of Kessingland on the Heritage Coast.
With a Blue Flag beach on the doorstep which is dog-friendly all year round, guests can enjoy lazy days by the sea, long walks along the beach or get out and about exploring Suffolk's many attractions including Africa Alive, one of the area's most popular attractions in Kessingland itself.
Parking is available outside the bungalow which affords uninterrupted views out across the beach (literally twenty-five yards from the bungalow). A good range of amenities can be found in the village with pubs/restaurants for a meal out, shops for provisions and a bus service that allows you to explore without the use of the car.
Gaining awards for its cleanliness, the beach is primarily sand and offers plenty of space to find a quiet spot to lay your towel, play and build sand castles until your heart is content.
For those who can tear themselves away from this coastal oasis, Southwold is within easy reach (just twenty minutes by car) with its impressive pier (great fish and chips!), shops, theatre (in the summer) eateries and Adnams Brewery (a tour is highly recommended!). RSPB Minsmere is also just a car ride away for wildlife enthusiasts and the village of Blythburgh (close to Southwold) also attracts more than its fair share of feathered visitors for those keen on bird watching.
Other attractions for a day trip out include Pleasurewood Hills Theme Park with plenty of fun packed into almost sixty acres; Lowestoft with its family friendly beach that gets more sunshine than most as it's the first place where the sun rises each day; the pretty village of Walberswick with its glorious sand dunes and Dunwich, a sleepy coastal village and beach managed by the National Trust. Oulton Broad (the gateway to the Norfolk Broads) is also within driving distance, as is the vibrant City of Norwich, so no shortage of day trips out.

Additional information: Electric heating keeps the property warm all year round and is included in the price. Please bring your own towels and bed linen (bed linen can be hired at extra cost) - duvets, pillows and blankets provided. Wooden floors and rugs (apart from the kitchen and bathroom) make it practical. Car parking available directly outside the front door. Children are most welcome but the area is better suited to adults and teenagers due to the cliff top location (care must be taken with younger children as the property is close to the cliffs). Dogs may be accepted by prior arrangement and please contact the owner should you want a short break (four night minimum breaks offered).
