Why Tracey Badcock chose Overstrand

If you are looking for a peaceful seaside village then look no further.The location of the cottage is perfect for families as it is so close to the beach.Take the children crabbing from nearby Cromer pier. Alternatively for walkers there is a plethora of walking trails in the area-long walks can be taken beside the sea or inland.Maybe the cyclists amongst you will enjoy cycling from the cottage on to the" quiet lanes".

Fantastic cottage in a lovely part of the world

  • 4 of 5

Just what was required. The whole family needed to get away and switch off for a while and this cottage was the perfect answer. The cottage is lovely. All the home comforts you need. The log burner is fantastic and snoozing in front of it on a chilly afternoon takes some beating.

Overstrand is a lovely place. Walking along the sea front at 8am watching Luna the dog play is the perfect way to start the day. Also walking along the breach to enjoy Cromer is fun. Some of the family got the bus back whilst the hardier members walked back with the dog. The White Horse pub in the village was a disappointment (a lovely building ruined). However our Saturday night meal at the Sea Marge Hotel more than made up for it. The Cliff Top café is also brilliant.

Overall a 10 out of 10 weekend. Brilliant time and we can't wait to visit again.

Cottage in Overstrand

  • 4 of 5

This cottage was lovely. Clean and cosy and ideally located in the village of Overstrand, very close to the beach with it's lovely sands and cliff top walks. It was a real home from home with everything you could need and a very comfortable bed! It was great to be able to sit in front of a roaring fire in the evening and our dog loved it, especially being able to go for long walks on the beach. It was a convenient location for travelling around, being just a 2 mile walk along the beach into Cromer. There's a fab cliff top cafe serving great food and lovely hot chocolate after a breezy walk along the cliffs! Also a shed selling fresh, locally caught, dressed crabs and lobster...delicious! There is also a hotel and a pub serving food and drink and a great local shop and post office which sells most things you could need. Everyone is very friendly and everywhere was spotlessly clean. All in all a great place for a relaxing, chilled out, home from home, break.
