About the property

Converted Stables in Mundesley, Nr. Cromer, Norfolk, England - Excellent Unique Location, 25m from Beach with Private Slipway

The village of Mundesley is an excellent location for a seaside holiday. It has a wonderful wide beach backed by a small promenade and a good range of shops, pubs and restaurants. Some may enjoy a dip in the sea or perhaps just the chance to relax and enjoy the view, whilst children will love to play on the golden sands. The close proximity of Gig House to the beach makes it an ideal safe location for family holidays. Mundesley is a traditional English seaside village popular with day trippers and holidaymakers alike, without being too busy. The wide sandy beach ensures Mundesley is not overcrowded even during the summer months. Mundesley is an ideal base for long walks along the coast all year round. The house was constructed in the early 1840's using traditional materials; brick, flint and lime plaster. The flint and lime plaster is 'breathable' which allows moisture to enter the walls, which may mean uneven / flaking lime plasterwork from time to time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Gig House is simply wonderful! It felt like a real home from the second we arrived. So, many thanks for creating such a lovely space! It is very special. R Abbas

We thought the cottage was lovely-the best we've stayed in over the 7 years the three of us have been meeting up. You may hear from us again. Jane

Just to say that we had the most wonderful week's break at Gig House. Many thanks for a wonderful stay and we will be in touch very soon! Mrs Yeoman

The location makes the Gig House very special.Mrs L Parkinson

just a quick note to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay in Gig House.The house is beautiful. The pictures on the website dont prepare you for how good the house is and how close you are to the beach and sea. The beach is wonderful. Our dog loved it more than we did. Walking on the beach at night with no-one else in sight is something rare and special. Waking to the sound of the sea!We loved Mundesley and the area. We were all keen to return. Allen and Ann Wal

Perfect beachside house with everything you could need for a family holiday by the sea!

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely and full of character. Good sized bedrooms and view from the main bedroom was amazing. Just a few steps from the big sandy beach and close to many of the main places to visit in Norfolk. Well equipped kitchen, plenty of games and puzzles in the lounge and good outside space for if the weather is a bit warmer. What would make it perfect would be a table tennis table or table football in the huge utility room.

Would thoroughly recommend this property for a visit to Norfolk at any time of the year for a family and great for dogs.

  • 5 of 5

we had a lovely holiday. the house is so homely. very clean. lots of space, would love to go back in the summer.

Really nice area with a great pub/ restaurant literally a minutes walk away. the village has a few cafes that we tried. all were delicious and reasonable. They also let dogs in. there is a spar within walking distance. The beach is beautiful and huge. enjoyed many mornings and afternoons walking there. I would highly recommend

All we had hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

Gig House was just as we hoped, with the great benefit of having the beach so close and able to enjoy the relaxing noise of rolling waves. There were 3 couples in our group for part of the week (two for the rest), an 18 month toddler and a Labrador; and the spaciousness of the cottage worked extremely well for us all. Mundesley is a very pleasant seaside village to walk round with good amenities, yet only 7 miles to Cromer. Our week went far too quickly and we shall want to return to this area again before long and we certainly would consider staying at Gig House again.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Per last year the family had a fantastic time and again we were blessed with the weather, which helps when you have two under 5! Property is in a fantastic location with a wonderful beach a stones throw away. Nice quiet location, unspoilt village. The property itself is showing signs of wear and tear and could do with little TLC to bring it up to the same level of feel and quality of other house we have stayed in. We would be back for the beach alone!
