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.

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

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.

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

Fabulous - 10 out of 10!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay in Norfolk, a family week away (3 generations + Poppy the dog) to celebrate Mum's 80th birthday, we could not have chosen better. La Hat is comfortable, spacious and in the most wonderful location, a perfect base. The views from the rear of the house across the dunes and past the beach huts are picture postcard. Walk out of the back gate and the sand is under your feet, great for the kids to explore and play or for us adults to take in a long walk with the dog - we often did this at sunrise, deserted and magical and then back for a big breakfast because we'd earned it. There is lots to do and see in North Norfolk but equally you could easily park the car for a week, wander locally, catch the Coast hopper bus to explore further afield or just relax and go home feeling refreshed. The house is well equipped for self-catering but, there are some great dining options on the doorstep not to be missed - we can recommend them all. Thanks Charles & Annette for sharing your lovely home, we had the perfect week (including the weather), we didn't want to leave and like many before us, we can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: Thanks Celia, We are delighted that you enjoyed your week at La Hat, and you are right, there is so much to do, and yet right out of the back door there is THAT beach and THOSE long walks. Glad that Poppy enjoyed it as well. Come back soon! Annette and Charles

What can you say about La Hat that has not been said already all we can repeat is ditto to everything. Lovely large house and fantastic position. We had three generations so were able to escape to the upper room whilst the little ones had plenty of room on the ground floor. Three very little ones from one to three had the most wonderful time, bug hunting and flying kites on the dunes just through the back gate and then on to the beach for shrimping and digging excavations. Everyone without fail absolutely loved the whole experience and want to do it again. Small children were so tired after such busy days that they slept like logs in a nice quiet bedroom area. One complaint do the birds have to be so happy and wake you so early?!!! No that was great too. The dog also had a lovely time and after one day could find his way "home".

Final word and only if you have visited this magical place will you understand and that is the "Wise Old Tree" was adored by the children and they immediately obeyed his commands ie wash hands, go to bed etc.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Jenny, we are glad you enjoyed La Hat. Also we are pleased the "Wise Old Tree" has been living up to his usual standards. The only issue is if he was able to point you to the door where the little pixies live! For those coming on behind you will have to look hard to find it! Come back soon - La Hat will have a warm welcome back. Annette and Charles

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

Hunstanton 5 minutes

Burnham Market 20 Minutes

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.
