About Caroline Mace

I live in London with my husband, 3 sons and daughter. We discovered Norfolk a few years ago when we stayed locally for my husbands 40th birthday and fell in love with the area - its a traditional seaside village! Tower House is the perfect, spacious home for our family to run free and enjoy the fresh air, spend long happy family days on the sandy beach and generally put our feet up and relax!

Caroline Mace purchased this house in 2013

Why Caroline Mace chose Mundesley

Perfect location, 100 yards from the sandy beach, lovely quiet village, great local park and the house is big and comfortable enough for our large family to get together for special occasions.

What makes this house unique

We love the fact its only a few hours away and when we arrive there is so much space and lots to entertain the children within the house and locally in the park or on the sandy beach, even in the middle of December! It gives us some great family time and also the chance to slow down from our busy schedules.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From Trip Advisor, 5 stars:

It has all been said before, really and we agree whole-heartedly with other reviewers. Our party consisted of 8 adults and 5 children aged 5 to 9. As there were more toys, dressing-up clothes and outside play equipment than they would ever have at home they were constantly occupied in the house and they also had a fantastic beach on the doorstep to enjoy (virtually empty, even in August). Happy children tend to make happy parents!

The house was superbly equipped and tastefully decorated and there are plenty of things to do in north Norfolk. We spent most of the time in the kitchen or on the patio when we were in the house, but the lounge and dining room were also large and well furnished.

We would happily return and, indeed, hope to do so in the not too distant future.

Amazing 5 * Family Stay

  • 5 of 5

My mother-in-law Dawn found your house online and booked it for a special family weekend as we were celebrating my father-in-law's 60th Birthday. We were absolutely blown away by the house. The location and closeness to the beach was amazing and we had fabulous weather so were able to really enjoy it. The house was stunning, beautifully decorated and perfect for a large group. We had more than we needed and we were so impressed at how much it catered for children. We had 5 children and a baby with us and the house had everything we could have needed. The kids loved the pirate bunk beds, the playroom, the karaoke machine, the climbing frame and trampoline in the garden. We loved that they were thoroughly entertained. All the bedrooms were gorgeous and comfortable and even though we had a large group we had plenty of space. We wish we had longer.

We could not fault the house and the facilities and have been raving about it since we returned. We have been looking at new dates for a longer stay next time as the house was so lovely we didn't really leave it and get chance to explore the area!

We would definitely recommend this property to all of our friends and family.

Great house - perfect for a family get together! We had 10 adults and 5 children, aged 3-10.

  • 5 of 5

Tower House is brilliant, especially if you have kids with you. Ours loved the garden with all the play equipment, the adults also used the chess set, and the younger kids had a great time in the playroom.

The property is really close to the beach, there is a park, pub and shop within walking distance and there is loads to visit within easy driving distance.

The kitchen is extremely well equipped and a great size, big enough for us all to be in there together, whether cooking, eating or generally hanging about!

We didn't use the formal dining room to dine - it became our quiet jigsaw room, an occupation that has become something of a tradition during our family gatherings. The lounge is perfect, with a tv (so many channels!!) one end, leaving the other end quieter.

Everyone was very happy with the bedrooms and bathrooms. The super king size beds came in handy when little ones didn't settle and joined parents.

Overall, the Tower House was just what we wanted and we had a great time.

The only thing missing? A rolling pin.........but we used the cardboard tube from inside the kitchen roll, so the birthday cake did get iced!!

An amazing property that catered for all ages ranging from 2 to 76

  • 5 of 5

The house had 8 bedrooms and 4 shower/baths all beautifully fitted and decorated. The enclosed garden was safe for the 6 g'children and had climbing frames;trampoline and huge outdoor chess set;indoors there was a games room which seemed to cater for all tastes for the youngsters. The main attraction was the beach which was 300yrds away and almost deserted atleast by English standards and fit for anything from cricket to rounders; sandcastles and kids being towed along the surf on surf boards. The house overall was very well equipped from the kitchen to Sky TV and various board and card games.
