About Lee Miller

Our Family love this area & the beach etc. We have another cottage nearby just for our family & friends and we are often there.

Lee Miller purchased this house in 1999

Why Lee Miller chose Kings Lynn & West Norfolk

We love the area and the cottage is so near to the fantastic beach & yet within walking distance of restaurants etc. We can play golf, go birdwatching,walk, visit lots of places of interest or just laze about.

What makes this house unique

Golf course road is a private road and therefore very quiet but only approx 200 yards from the beach and yet within easy walking distance to restaurants, Inns etc.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks for a wonderful week we all enjoyed the cottage and Old Hunstanton.

Both myself and my dog have missed to walks along the beach but back to the real world. Anyway thank you again.

Just to let you know that we enjoyed every minute of our stay and will be certainly returning. 20th May 2012.

April 2014 We did enjoy our brief stay, it's a lovely part of the Country and the house was just right.

Very neat and tidy

  • 4 of 5

We had a good stay at Pipers Cottage and enjoyed visits to various places of interest,

The cottage was fine for us, particularly the kitchen. I found it quite difficult getting comfortable in the living room as all the seating was rather soggy and eventually brought a chair in from the garden and put cushions on it. The double bed was very comfortable and the house was clean and tidy. Our only negative was that both toilet brushes need to be changed for new ones!

Loved the proximity to the beach and enjoyed walking there and seeing glorious sunsets.

Owner's Response: Hi Gill Thank you for the feedback. I am glad you enjoyed your stay at Sandpiper Cottage. I will sort the brushes asap and will have a look at the living room furniture. It may need new cushions (or new furniture) Lee

Great location, walking on the beach with our dog. Fab local produce cooked in the social kitchen. Made use of the patio even in March. Warmest house we've stayed in. Cosy living room. Loved it.

Great facilities and fabulous location by beach

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Sandpiper over Christmas - fantastic house, well equipped and very warm & cosy. Had no trouble cooking Christmas dinner in the large kitchen/dining room. Located very close to fabulous sandy beach, great for long walks, and we enjoyed watching the Kite Surfers & Windsurfers. Tried several of the local pubs which are within walking distance, one very convenient at the end of the lane, and had good meals in all of them. Owner Lee was very helpful and responded quickly to queries raised. Thoroughly recommend Sandpiper - we hope to go back soon.

Excellent choice beside a glorious beach

  • 4 of 5

Sandpiper Cottage was a very well equipped cottage with very comfy beds and an extremely effective heating system. Despite experiencing high winds, rain and hail we were assured of a warm welcome on our return to the cottage. The position is ideal for walking and central to visit the lovely Norfolk coastal attractions. Walks along the beach to Holme with a visit to the White Horse for lunch (they have an extensive menu, serving very generous portions). PS don,t go without a visit to Hollham's magnificent beach!

A lovely Christmas 'home from home'

  • 5 of 5

A great location, just yards from the beach and local hostelries, within a quiet part of Old Hunstanton, 'Sandpiper' was warm and welcoming and perfect for our family Christmas break. Pauline, the owner, prepped us with inside knowledge of places to eat and Christmas opening hours and even decorated the house with a festive air. She was most helpful. I can't recommend 'Sandpiper' enough. We would love to go back and try it in the summer!
