Tower house is a large, 5 Star, award winning Victorian family home, situated in Mundesley, a small seaside village with a blue flag sandy beach, on the north east heritage coast of Norfolk.

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 North Norfolk & Coast

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.

Tower House is an impressive comfortable and well furnished property. Great facilities for all ages.

  • 5 of 5

We booked Tower House to celebrate our Golden Wedding Anniversary with our family, ten adults and six children. It was a great few days spent in comfortable surroundings. It was especially relaxing as there is a fabulous playroom for the children plus a great play area in the garden, which meant the younger guests were fully occupied.

It is a very short walk to the beach and local pub etc. It is a very nice area.

The house exceeded our expectations, well appointed and lacking nothing.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property.

A lovely house in a lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

I was very impressed with the house and the whole family was very happy with their stay and we all had a great time. We had 17 people there ranging from 2 to 84 and we all had things to do and plenty of space. This house should be a credit to the owners and hopefully we will be back there in the future.

Fantastic in every way

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property for a big group of family or friends. The house is superb, decorated immaculately, has everything you could ever need (and more) and great for all ages. The children in our group loved the playroom and the garden, which in turn made the adults in the group love the property even more! No need to take anything apart from clothes, the house is well equipped, so all you have to do it arrive, relax and enjoy your stay!

A perfect break, we're already talking about coming back next year!

Paradise for young children.

  • 5 of 5

4 families stayed in the house with 4 young children, aged 1 - 4. It was wonderfully child-friendly: a playroom packed full of toys, books and dressing-up clothes (the 4 year old girl just loved wearing the 'Frozen' Elsa dress!), and a garden with trampoline and brilliant climbing frame/slide. It was just as close as advertised to a lovely sandy beach, safe and perfect for young children.

The house was extremely spacious, practical and comfortable. It was clean, well-maintained and well-equipped. It was a lovely touch that there was (quite a lavish!) welcome tray awaiting us when we arrived.

We spent most of the time in the garden or on the beach, but on a wet day went to the nearby Elephant Playbarn, which was brilliant for young kids.

A great holiday -- thank you!
