The Experience

This was once a fisherman’s cottage and he would have crammed a large family into it quite happily, so there’s plenty of space for a loved-up couple or a singleton desiring time alone. You walk straight from the pavement into the kitchen, then a table by a pretty window seat and a tiny, light-filled sitting room. Two vintage armchairs sit in front of an Everhot electric stove so you’ll feel very cosy and you’re surrounded by some quirky, end-of-the-pier style art.

Up rather steep stairs to a lovely bedroom with a big bed, clouds of feather and down, a sweet sash window with a window box, groovy lighting and more local art. A couple of wooden steps take you up to a shower with Norfolk soaps and lotions and a heated towel rail to keep you cosy.

Morning tea or a sundowner will be lovely in the south-west facing courtyard with colourful pots. Paula leaves you basics for cooking, a bottle of wine and a jar of honey from her own bees.

Reviews

It's tiny but lovely and everything is well thought-out, generous and attractive. A great little space from which to explore Cromer and if you hire bikes you can probably just leave the car in its spot for a whole week.

Location

The neighbourhood

There's a good deli in the parallel street for stocking up with local produce and it's a one-minute walk to the promenade for North Sea Coffee - an excellent little café where they have pop-up events in the summer. Big skies and fabulous Blue Flag status beaches with surfing waves are walkable so head off for a proper seaside day out. Join the coastal path or hire bikes, visit Sheringham Park.

Local points of interest from Paula Coast

  • Get up early, grab a paper from the tobacconist on the corner, head to the prom for North Sea Coffee & you might be lucky enough to see local artist Paul Darley in his paint spattered suit sketching fishermen as they load crab pots onto Cromer beach.
  • Where better to spend a day in the ocean than on Cromer’s Blue Flag Status Beach. Under expert guidance at the Glide Surf School, hire a board & discover a passion for surfing - once you catch your first wave, you’ll be hooked for life!
  • Love the cold water? Pull on your wetsuit & woolly hat to join the ‘Bluetits Chill Swimmers’ at Sheringham’s Blue Flag Beach for wild swimming - Post swim dry robe & hot drink a must - you might even see the seals!
  • Vinyl revivalists can Keep The Faith at Cromer Soul Club’s Northern Soul nights or visit the ‘Punk Office’ in Holt to browse one of the largest collections of new and used vinyl records found under one roof anywhere in the UK.
  • Walkers are Welcome & with links to a number of long distance trails you can leave the car behind. Armed with binoculars & thermos, stride out to explore the Deep History Coast, hunt for fossils, observe the birdlife or just take in Norfolk skies.
  • Golfers, Beach Runners and Tennis enthusiasts will find all the facilities they need within walking distance and during the summer months can even ease their aching limbs with early morning yoga on the pier!
