Beautiful place cant wait to return

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this cottage from 29th July 2016 for a week with my husband,two girls and our little dog Phoebe. I can't recommend this place enough, the cottage itself is like home from home and has absolutely everything you need, it's clean and welcoming and has a lovely greened area to the front where our children played out safely until dark.

The beach is on your doorstep which is lovely and our children and dog played for hours in and out the waves.

The extra little touches such as the outdoor games really made a difference, have already booked to return :)

Although the weather was poor it didn't spoil our stay at Stones Throw mainly because the accommodation was excellent!. The cottage was clean, well equipped and warm. We really had a great time and will come back again.

Wonderful stay at Stones Throw

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent four nights here with our dog over Bank Holiday weekend and had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. The cottage is exactly as described, with all the amenities one needs. It is well maintained, clean and very comfortable, with lots of little extras - toys, DVDs, books, etc. The location is perfect for a peaceful, relaxing break. The beach is indeed a "stones throw" away and is perfect for long walks or exercising dogs. The village pubs, shop, cafes and food outlets ( fish & chips and Chinese) are dog friendly and within easy walking distance and Bacton itself is well positioned for short drives to many coastal resorts. This was a "trial" holiday with our dog and we would have no hesitation in repeating it.

Stones Throw, Bacton

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here - lots of DVDs, games and outdoor toys to keep the children entertained and my husband and I loved the peaceful, friendly Rainbows End Park. The beach is a 2 minute walk away and this cottage is very central for other attractions in the area. Would highly recommend it.

Cosy Cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the cottage for a weekend break and had a lovely relaxing time. The setting is peaceful, scenic and just a stone's throw from a wonderful sandy beach. The cottage is well equipped and very clean. The owners ensured that we had everything we needed for our stay and nothing was too much trouble. We'll definitely stay there again as it's a great place from which to explore the broads, the coast and visit the many attractions close by. We particularily enjoyed our trip to Horsey Beach where we saw hundreds of seals. The surrounding countryside is stunning and there are some great places for sightseeing and walking. Thoroughly recommended.

From the Owner

Having spent many wonderful holidays in Norfolk we always dreamt of having a peaceful weekend retreat by the sea and this was realised in 2011 when we purchased Spindrift. We purchased Stones Throw in November 2014 so our growing family could holiday together and to enable our guests to enjoy the delights of this wonderful part of England. Rainbows End is situated in beautiful park land, with direct access to wonderful dog friendly beaches all year around whilst the beaches offer a safe environment for children of all ages.
