About the property

"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. Nearby are Happisburgh Lighthouse and East Ruston Gardens, travel a little further to enjoy Cromer Pier, Bewilderwood, Amazona Zoo, National Trust properties, Steam Railways, the Norfolk Broads; there is a wealth of places to explore whilst on holiday. If you can drag yourself away from the beach that is!

About Debbie Copas

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.

Debbie Copas purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Debbie Copas chose North Norfolk & Coast

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

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

Very home from home, clean and of a high standard

  • 4 of 5

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😎

  • 5 of 5

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.

Absolutely fabulous

  • 5 of 5

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!!!

Owner's Response: You found one of our favourite pastimes whilst in Norfolk - having the wonderful all day breakfasts! It sounds like you went to Kingfisher cafe, which is a lovely walk along the coast. We also have Sugar and Spice cafe in the village or a short drive away is Smallsticks cafe in Happisburgh. All equally wonderful! Thanks for your lovely review.
