"Tides" Contemporary, pet friendly, free wi-fi, seaside home, in Bacton, Norfolk - 2 Minutes from the beach, shop and eating places within a short walk
Tides is a tastefully refurbished, end of terrace holiday home based on Rainbows End Park in Bacton. It sleeps four in two bedrooms, has an open living and dining room and is pet friendly too. The property is decorated in a coastal style, with tiled floors throughout. Come here to relax and enjoy the sea air, but there are so many gems to discover within Norfolk that you are just a short drive away from discovering.

About the Owner
Tides is a sister property to Beachscape, both based on Rainbows End Park. Enjoy these seaside retreats in a village my family have holidayed in for four generations.
I created Norfolk Coastal Holidays as an umbrella for the three properties I now take bookings for. We live a few hours away, but travel to Norfolk regularly throughout the year, to ensure that the properties remain at a high standard and any little problems get ironed out as quickly as we can!
Beachscape is identical in layout to Tides and also sleeps 4 in two bedrooms. I also take bookings for a beautiful two bed cottage with wood burner in nearby Happisburgh.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Had a brilliant few days at Tides the weather was so good, very sunny, also the people at Norfolk are so friendly. The area around Tides has some lovely walks; the dogs love it, looking forward to the next holiday in September. April 15
Beautiful chalet, very modern and clean. Great beaches, lovely pubs, we had good weather. Thank you. October 14
Had a wonderful week away, decorated lovely and homely, great location for the sea walks with Boo, he enjoyed it very much! August 14
What a lovely place; everything you could possibly need and perfect peace and quiet. We have never been to this park before but we will definitely be back again. Lovely comfy bed, home from home, just what we needed. April 2014
Thank you so much for an amazing stay! had the best time ever, absolutely fell in love with the cottage. Hopefully we will visit again soon. March 2014
Feeling refreshed! Have been to this part of Norfolk many times, but never stumbled across Rainbows End. We shall return in the future I'm sure. Lovely chalet, super location. Our little one particularly enjoyed the large choice of toys left for him to play with. Very comfortable, friendly and helpful neighbours - only downside is we have to go home! March 2014
What a fabulous cottage! Clean and really well equipped; you have really worked hard to make Tides a wonderful place to chill out! Had a quiet time on the beach & the fish and chips were really good! October 2013
4.9 based on 13 holidaymaker reviews
Very home from home, clean and of a high standard
The property was everything it said on line, and very comfortable, not to big but definitely big enough for four adults and a dog. Great location and especially enjoyed visiting Sheringham Park as did Fagon. We would definitely recommend Tides to anyone wanting to visit this area!
11 out of 10😎
We felt welcome from the moment we walked through the door to find dog treats left for our pooch. The property was exceptionally clean and bright and the little extras such as foil, kitchen paper towel, salt & pepper too many to mention them all ,made it feel very homely.
Also Debbie's pre holiday info proved very useful, especially the warning about the pot holed entrance road, be warned this is very bumpy.
We would definitely recommend this property, great location, easy walk to the beach and Bacton village which is conveniently located to visit the attractions of the north Norfolk coast and the Broads.
Thanks Debbie we are looking forward to our next visit.
right by the sea
Lovely stay right by the sea, Tides had everything we needed and was very much like home from home. Recommended for a nice break.
Lovely Little Hideway
Excellent little hideaway with all the facilities one needs. Lovely beaches nearby.
Thoroughly enjoyed our little break and I would recommend this property to anyone thinking of booking.
Thank you Debbie
Despite the weather we had a wonderful stay at Tides. It is comfortable, well equipped, spottlessly clean and lovely and warm. It is moments from the beach which provided loads of fun for our two dogs. Would recommend the breakfast at the café just down the coast - it certainly kept my husband quiet!!!
From the Owner
“Bacton is a small unassuming village, but the beauty of it is there is currently no public access to most of the beaches. Therefore it really is like a private oasis of peace and quiet even in the busy summer season. Tides is based on Rainbows End Park, which has no facilities, simply the sea and beach on its doorstep! I have lots more information and photos on my website.”
Activity and Interests
Just two minutes walk from Bacton beach, a sandy beach that comes and goes with the tides. Access is via concrete steps down the sea wall to the beach, with a further set of steps dependent on beach height which varies throughout the season. You'll find a tide clock in the property to help you plan your day. You can walk along the promenade even when the tide is in and a short drive away are other beaches, that remain regardless of the tide.
The beach page on our website Norfolk Coastal Holidays has lots more info.
Car recommended for this destination but there are enough local facilities within walking distance for a short break. Train service to Norwich and then a local service to North Walsham. Taxis available from the station, approx 5 mile drive to the property. Bus service weekdays only. Nearest airport Norwich International 20 miles away. Car Hire available at the airport from Avis, Hertz and Europcar.
We are ideally placed to explore the many seaside towns along the Norfolk Coast, including Cromer, Sheringham and Great Yarmouth, the Norfolk Broads or to the beautiful city of Norwich.
Cromer is 20 minutes away where you will find it's historic pier with a fabulous theatre as well as the lifeboat station. See a show, go crabbing or enjoy fish and chips at No 1, high on the town overlooking the pier. Travel 15 minutes further up the coast to Sheringham and enjoy a steam train ride!
Tides has many good local facilities within a 15 minute walk or nearer.
Well stocked local shop: papers, off licence, general foodstuffs.
Sugar and Spice cafe - on the Coast road, lovely food, excellent ratings on Trip Advisor and dog friendly too!
Bacton fish and chips, a very popular takeaway
Duke pub and Poachers Pocket pub - both dog friendly with good food at Poachers.
Keswick hotel restaurant for a special night out or try the Chinese restaurant - eat in or takeaway.
Venture out in the car and there are lots of dog friendly places to visit and eat at.
You will find everything you need at the three nearest towns, North Walsham, Stalham and Cromer. Local farm shops, banks, chemists, supermarkets, pet shops, markets and more.
Norfolk is full of places to visit, with something around every corner for all the family, young to old and including the family pet. We have lots of information on our website, so once you've booked, do go browsing and decide what you plan to do during your stay with us. There's so much you'll need to come back another time and indeed we have many happy returning guests, now we have been in business for six years!
National Trust properties include Blicking and Felbrigg Hall and the beautiful Sheringham Park. For walkers, try Bacton Woods inland or walk along the coastal path. Children will simply enjoy the beach or take them to Bewilderwood, Amazona Zoo, Pleasurewood Hills, or the many activities in Great Yarmouth.
Visit the seals at Horsey or take a boat trip to Blakeney. Climb Happisburgh Lighthouse on one of its open days, or simply take photos from nearby. Norfolk is a photographers dream! Steam trains, museums, gardens, cinemas, sports facilities, nature reserves - there's everything you could wish for in whatever makes your perfect holiday.

From the Owner
“Arriving in this part of rural Norfolk, is a little like stepping back in time; life is slower paced, the locals are friendly and you can breathe in beautiful clean sea air! The property is very well placed for exploring much of Norfolk. Travel up and down the coast enjoying the charms of the many seaside villages, take a day boat out and stop for lunch within the Norfolk Broads, or for big city life, take a trip into the beautiful city of Norwich, just 30/40 minutes away. See more information and photos on my website.”
