Nice property, well furnished. liked the two double beds in the large bedroom downstairs. Would have liked a stool, door hooks, shelf and shower shelf in the downstairs bathroom.

You could not get any nearer to the beach, literally just over a sand dune.. Great walking for the dogs....oh and us of course. The house was clean and well appointed, good wifi. We do like a good woodburner which this had. The road approaching the house was very potholed, but as long as you drive slowly you are ok. It was so special to see the seals at Horsey Bay, so many of them, just stunning. We had a very minor issue, called the owner who was literally there within the hour and all sorted. Very welcoming and helpful. We stayed in March which was great, I can only imagine what an absolute gem this place would be in the summer with the beach as I said literally over the sand dune, what more would you need.

We had a very relaxed holiday and the dogs enjoyed the freedom of the garden.. It is a very remote village but we enjoy the peace and quiet though some people might find it a little too isolated. The road surface on the estate is very poor. Access to the beach was very good and there are lots of walks in the area. On unpacking we appear to have gained 2 tea towels. I am happy to post them back if you could advise where to send them. Sincere apologies for this oversight.

Needing a well earnt break from work etc we booked this place. Yes you do need to beware of the pot holes in the road accessing the house but just drive slowly. You could not be nearer to the beach, literally just over the sand dunes. Loved the wood burner, very cosy. We did have to contact the owner on a very minor issue who responded immediately and was very helpful. Fantastic to see the seals at Horsey Bay. A week of great dog walks on the beach and around the area, many thanks

Very enjoyable break with the family, Home to Roost is so close to the beach for those long walks with the dogs each day and then to return to cosy afternoons with the fire burning made it extra special.. It was a nice surprise to see the Christmas tree on arrival. Our family all enjoyed Home to Roost giving us a Christmas to remember. Laraine & Peter.

Fantastic location to explore the West Norfolk Coastline.. Great accommodation, clean, warm with plenty of room, a few yards from the sea. The Road onto the Bush Estate is uneven with large pot holes in places - but passable with care. The property stands on a good-sized plot and parking was easily accessible. The garden was enclosed and there was a back gate which was great for bringing our black lab round to the rear of the property for a good clean after a day on the beach - the outside tap was very useful! One thing we would have found very useful was a tumble drier - especially in the winter months but this is a minor point. We travelled 370 miles from North Devon to explore Norfolk for the first time and we were not disappointed. Great walks along the coastal path, friendly neighbours and local people - especially in Happisburgh - a lovely community that is sadly slipping into the sea - we were shocked by the extent of the coastal erosion. Thank you - hope to return soon in the near future.

Really enjoyed our stay at Home to Roost.. Very spacious, light, clean and airy but also cosy in the evenings. We used a lamp from the bedroom as cosier with a lamp in the evening. We used the log burner, plenty of stock there but we brought our own from home as we have plenty for ours. The heating very warm and easy to turn up or down to our required temperature. Kitchen well equipped. Bath upstairs was as deep as our roll top at home so that was gorgeous soaking in it at the end of a long walking days. Love the back garden all enclosed so very safe for our 2yr old pet spaniel who I have to say had the time of his life. Literally 2mins walk to the gorgeous sandy beach. We have been at this location before so knew the area. Cafe Sea Palling about a 50 min walk along the beach. Walcott 10 ish mins in the car for amazing fish & chips. We went to view the sea lions and pups just a little further up from sea palling, that was amazing. Cromer is not far and many other locations are close enough by car. The land at Eccles is private so no Tarmac but honestly just drive slowly and if you like quiet, peaceful relaxing holiday then this is the place to be.

We have had the most wonderful holiday.. Staying in great accommodation in a beautiful location and only a one minute walk to a fantastic beach. We'll definitely be coming back. Thank you *

Lovely spacious property that is a sun trap! Great for the dogs with good sized secure garden and quiet beach a few seconds walk away. Only comment is there is a nack of parking in the driveway! We have a medium sized suv and only just could get in the gate. A large lwb with a large turning circle 4x4 would struggle.

Fantastic property, well equipped and tastefully furnished.. Brilliant for dogs as only 100 yards or so from the beach, and lots of other walks near by. Not far to local pubs, 10 min car ride or 45 min walk. We had a great week Thankyou

Cottage was great and lovely and new.. We had it for a week and could have stayed longer. John the owner was very accommodating and left us some beach chairs in the porch too. Garden was excellent for the two nights a dog stayed with us. Really enjoyed it and would recommend this cottage for families. Be careful on the approach road though as there were massive pot holes. Only two things missing in a very well equiped kitchen and cottage was a corkscrew and a hair dryer. A bbq would have been an excellent addition but we used disposables.

Home to Roost has been renovated to a very high standard.. It is newly decorated and immaculately clean. The kitchen is spacious and really well stocked with tools and equipment. It is perfect for families with 4 TVs, a games machine and board games and a super, 100%safe garden for children and dogs. Downstairs bedroom and bathroom make it a good home for older visitors but there is one step to negotiate so not suitable for wheelchairs. A large outside table and benches make dining outside easy. Depending on the tide the beach is just a short walk up and over the dune and a scramble over rocks - or a short, easy walk on a flat walkway when the tide is in. For prams it can be reached by a short walk towards the camp site to a ramp. The beach is clean with gorgeous, soft sand . A great location if you like to avoid noise, amusement arcades and crowds. But also short driving distance from great garden centres with coffee shops, Cromer and Norwich.
