With its direct access to the beach it is ideal for family holidays, getaways with friends or a place to just relax and take in all of North Norfolk. La Hat is dog friendly as is Old Hunstanton Beach.

The living area is on the second level, and provides the chance to eat inside or out on the newly constructed decking & BBQ area. From either of these you will see the spectacular sunset as it lowers itself into the sea of an evening. ?The living area is a cosy retreat with a log burning stove and Freeview TV /DVD to keep you entertained after dark.

The kitchen area is newly renovated as is the upstairs shower room which is adjacent to the bedroom from which you can awake and drink in the fabulous views over the beach.

The remaining 3 bedrooms are all decorated in a modern clean style and overlook the back garden.

All bed linen is provided, towels are not. There is so much to do and see, from fine dining through to long walks on the beach through to some of the finest natural attractions. The house is also within a very short walk to the Golf Club.

About Charles & Annette

Hello and welcome! Our family have always loved coming to Norfolk. We have spent many happy holidays enjoying both glorious summer days and blustery windswept winter weekends on the beach We have recently refurbished our much loved second home in Old Hunstanton and had great fun in doing it, the house now has all mod cons. This property is not only deceptively spacious but has great views over the coast. We live in Bedford so within 2 hours we can be at the house. It is a world away from everyday life and a real stress buster! We love the area because we are in close proximity to Burnham Market, Holkham, and many other lovely villages.We enjoy eating out and have been very impressed with not only the wide choice but also the excellent standard of the pubs and restaurants in the area.

Charles & Annette purchased this house in 1980

Why Charles & Annette chose Hunstanton

We bought a property in North Norfolk because so many of our happiest memories stem from here. A place with huge expanses of stunning beaches; pretty Norfolk villages with cottages build in flint and brick; the market towns of Holt and Burnham Market with their boutique shops; the farm shops and artisan producers and a mass of fabulous places to eat. We had spent enough time in Norfolk to know that it is just as special in the snow, the wind, or a spectacular thunderstorm as it is on a hot balmy day – you just need to you just need to be prepared for all eventualities (including sunbathing on the beach at Easter in 2011!).The pace of life is slower here which means we come away feeling relaxed and more refreshed.

What makes this house unique

Golf course road is a private road and therefore very quiet the house is only yards from the beach and yet within easy walking distance to restaurants, Inns etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Since we started renting the house we have had a wonderful reaction to the house. These are left in the guest book that you can see on your arrival. I wonder whether your comment will match these from last year?

Great house, perfect position, lovely area. I feel very relaxed as a result

Never disappointed!

  • 5 of 5

Such a lovely spacious house with everything you could need.We have had the pleasure of staying many times and at different times of the year too.Whether the sun is shining and you want to lay out on the decking or if it's cold and raining and you're wrapped up in hat's and wellies strolling along the beach,which is a few steps from the garden gate,this house is in an ideal place whatever mood you are in.It's so homely and yet you feel somewhat spoilt too,especially with the view.Close enough to walk into Hunstanton,if the kids are up to it,but out of the way of any hustle and bustle.Just to sit with a cuppa and look out at the view is such a treat.Thank you for a wonderful time...yet again!

Stayed for a week, did not want to leave. An absolutely brilliant location in an absolutely brilliant beachfront house.Lots of walking and chilling out. Even our teenage Son and his Cousin enjoyed it. Our Labrador had a wonderful time playing in the dunes and sea.

Lovely house, Great location and Stunning views

  • 5 of 5

The property lived up to the online description in all respects. It was ideal for our Family holiday, the dog really enjoyed life in the sand dunes. The tides were in our favour as we were able to walk along the beach to the Lifeboat at Thornham ( just under 10 miles round trip ) with a very nice lunch then a walk to Heacham the next day. Lovely days out to Kings Lynn / Sandringham and Holkham Estate. Plenty of fun in the amusements along the front in Hunstanton. A very nice meal at the White Horse at Holme on our last night.

All in all a wonderful holiday.

Truly a special place!

  • 5 of 5

Le Hat is a truly unique and magical property. The location of the house, provides you with a feeling of peace and tranquility that is so important,... but sometimes impossible to find today. Le Hat offers everything you would hope to find and more, when deciding to visit the north Norfolk coastline. Home from home with beautiful coastline for your back garden. Added to this everything you need, (fabulous restaurants, shops etc) is within walking distance. The only negative factor, is when it is time to leave.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review. It is great to be able to share the house with so many guests, many of whom like you are returning, who are able to enjoy all that we have to offer. Yes leaving is the wrench....

Fantastic Holiday Property

  • 5 of 5

Although things have not been good since returning from our Holiday hence the tardiness of my review we had a fantastic time at La Hat. The accommodation is first class extremely comfortable and had everything we needed. It is bright clean and very spacious. The location is out of this world, out of the garden gate and you are on the beach which is huge and has lots of birds when the tide is out, the dog was in seventh heaven. There is a small shop and several restaurants in Old Hunstanton with more being available in Hunstanton which is within easy walking distance by road or beach if the tides out. Holkham Wells are a short drive. We had one day of very heavy rain but it was just lovely to sit and watch the world go by from the dinning room. La Hat is in our top 5 holidays and we will be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, we do try to make sure that La Hat is as good as it can be, to match the fantastic location. We do love hearing back from you, and include a feedback form that has been the inspiration for a number of small and large improvements over the years. Annette and Charles

Special interest holidays:

North Norfolk has many activities including fantastic bird watching, great nature walks, Norfolk churches, ancesteral homes such as Sandringham and Holkom and a plethora of markets and wonderful produce to buy and cook.


Literally 1 minute from walking out of the back door down over the dunes you will be on the enormous and wide Hunstanton Beach. Even on the busiest of days the space is huge and provides a great place to walk with your thoughts or your loved ones!


Stansted Airport is 1.5hrs drive.

Kings Lynn is the nearest Train station - 45mins from Cambridge


You can walk or drive to many of attractions. The following are approximate drive times:

Hunstanton 5 minutes

Burnham Market 20 Minutes

Kings Lynn 30 Minutes

Norwich 1 Hour

The Coast hopper bus service - serves all the villages on the coast road and is a reliable and great value option to get to all the lovely beaches and villages.
