About Angela Smith

My husband and I live in Cromer Norfolk with our two Cockerpoos Isla and Amber. When we are not at Rainbows End we spend our time visiting our grandchildren or walking our dogs. We live a 20 minute drive from Rainbows End and do all our own cleaning and maintenance to ensure high standards of cleanliness and comfort. We are on hand should you have any problems or need advice during your stay.

We also own the adjacent property which is currently under refurbishment and will be available for hire from June. Ideal for families or friends who wish to take holidays together whilst having their own space.

Angela Smith purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Angela Smith chose North Norfolk & Coast

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.

What makes this cottage unique

Stones Throw is newly decorated and furnished for 2015 and we have added those little touches that will make your holiday as comfortable and relaxing as possible. We provide family friendly aspects including, bed guards, cot bed, childrens gate with unlimited access to Wi-fi.

We also own the adjacent property which is currently under refurbishment and will be available for hire from June. Ideal for families or friends who wish to take holidays together whilst having their own space.

Booking Notes:
I have carefully considered moving towards an on-line booking and payment system; however as this service would incur my guests an additional cost, circa 6%, I have elected to manage payments and bookings myself.

We have recently moved to Norfolk to ensure that in the unlikely event that any unforeseen issues occur I am on-hand to resolve the problem and to offer advise about the local area.

A selection of Children and Adults DVDs and board games are available for your enjoyment. We also provide some beach equipment including swingball, bucket and spades, kite and windbreak

Changeover Day:
Change over day is usually Friday, we are happy to discuss alternative days. We also offer short breaks either across the weekend or mid week

A 20% deposit will be charged to reserve the booking with the balance payable 6 weeks prior to your holiday commencing. Monies can be paid via cheque or BACS. Deposits are non returnable
I would ask that you contact me directly to agree payment details.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

100% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date.
