An attractive Victorian property offering spacious and stylish three-storey accommodation for six guests, situated in the seaside village of Overstrand, just a stone’s throw from the beach.

Overstrand is a small seaside village just 2.5 miles around the coast from the popular resort town of Cromer. The village beach is generally a quieter alternative to the bustling beaches in Cromer but, is nonetheless an excellent beach which is backed by cliffs and boasting a wide expanse of sand at low tide. A clifftop cafe sits above the beach and is a lovely spot to sit and enjoy lunch or drinks whilst taking in the fantastic sea views. There is also a welcoming pub in the village, as well as a handy shop and post office, however for a wider range of shops and places to eat, head around the coast to Cromer which prides itself on its lack of chain cafes, offering instead a choice of independent restaurants and coffee shops, many serving the local crab for which the area is famous.

At the heart of this attractive Victorian property is the spacious lounge/diner, a wonderfully light-filled room with a large bay window and chicly understated furnishings including two inviting sofas, a dining table seating six, and a warming wood burner. There will be no getting bored at the end of a day at the beach either, as there is an excellent range of entertainment options provided, offering not only a TV/DVD with Sky channels, but also a CD player with iPod dock and a fun Nintendo Wii games console. The kitchen is located just next to the lounge/diner and is equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine. The dining room leads off the kitchen and offers a table and chairs for four and patio doors giving you the option to extend outside. There is an additional fridge and freezer within the dining room. There is also a ground floor WC. Stairs from the hallway lead to the first floor where guests will find two of the three bedrooms. The master bedroom is a fantastically spacious room which has a king-size bed and affords sea views from the sitting area in the huge bay window. an en-suite shower room with a WC adds a much welcome extra touch to this room. The second bedroom is a cosy twin room, next to which the bathroom offers the best of both worlds, with both a bath and separate shower as well as a WC. The third bedroom is a gorgeous king-size room which is flooded with light thanks to the Velux windows and benefits from its own TV/DVD. The landing area on this floor has space to fit a travel cot which is available on request. Guests should be aware that this floor is situated in the eaves of the house, and therefore has some areas of reduced head-height.

To the rear of the property the garden is a great place to relax and offers a lawn as well as a patio which is surrounded by well-chosen flowering plants and comes complete with garden furniture and a BBQ. There is off-road parking available for one car, with additional roadside parking outside the house.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

A characterful and comfortable cottage which is very well equipped and has a great range of children's toys and games. Well situated close to the beach( though a steep walk down ).

Ideally situated for a young family. Close to the beach, with a small beach cafe at one end of the road and an excellent child friendly and dog friendly pub at the other. Small enclosed garden which makes the property safe for both children and pets.
