Gla- Duna was the best self-catering we have ever stayed in. The house was immaculately clean with a flat child friendly garden. Every bathroom was equipped with toiletries and we were welcomed by a superb welcome pack of fresh milk, tea coffee, snacks and cleaning products. The accommodation was very spacious with EnSite facilities in three of the bedrooms. Along with excellent communication from Sykes and from the owners by text we could not have wished for more. Perfect!
Yes it does have the WOW Factor! Beautifully furnished, clean all round, comfy beds and a well tended garden with decking and seating.
Denise & Trevor make you feel so welcome and leave treats in the fridge and in the kitchen. They have thought of everything .. baths for soaking, walk in shower for the less mobile, sun loungers and shady areas in the garden, baby changing facilities, plenty of equipment in the kitchen, TV's, google virtual assistant ...... the list goes on and on.
The house has plenty of room for 8 people with lots of parking, the street is really quiet and off the beaten track but no so far that you are out in the sticks.
Beach less than 5 mins walk, bar/restaurant, cafe, chippy, bakery all within 10 mins walk, shop a little further.
We had a chance to stay at Gla-Duna recently and had such a fantastic time. A fantastic escape.The property is maintained at a very high standard, with amazing rooms that had personal touches throughout. It is clear that the property owners poured their heart and soul into this property during development. There are clean and modern amenities throughout, with a huge garden and decking area that presented us with fantastic view out to the fields and natural landscape. It also had great facilities for our little one (the little play room was very quaint!). It was so quiet and relaxing, simply amazing. We had a few nights of dramatic sunsets, and we were not disappointed by all the birds that came to visit us each day. The beach was only a two minutes walk away. The beach was quiet, and stretched for mile after beautiful mile. Nicely located in proximity to the attractions of Great Yarmouth (only 10 minute drive on the days we went)--we were also close to other family venues such as Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens.Our family honestly enjoyed every moment. Thank you Denise and Trevor (and Gla-Duna family). Our family created fantastically amazing memories.
We have just had a weeks holiday at Gla Duna in Scratby and the property is fabulous and exceeded all our expectations.. The large living room, very well equipped kitchen and decking area make a great entertaining space for any family with a barbeque supplied. All bedrooms are a very nice size three with en suites. The garden was very well kept and a nice size with nice views to the rear. On arrival the owners Trevor and Denise met us and made us feel welcome and were very helpful and the welcome basket was a very nice touch. Even though the weather was a bit unkind to us we still managed to visit some very nice coastal towns and the main resort of Great Yarmouth which has something for everyone. We will definitely be visiting Gla Duna again and would recommend it to anyone. Thank you very much to the owners Trevor and Denise for a lovely relaxing week.
We will be back. Wonderful welcome and ideal accommodation for a perfect family holiday. Superb attention to detail with many thoughtful extra touches. Welcome pack & wine much appreciated. Safe for little ones & easy for more senior citizens! Peaceful & ambient atmosphere. Plenty of room to spread out & relax. Thank you Denise & Trevor.thoroughly recommended.????
