Sea View is a large and beautiful Victorian house, situated on the main road and directly on to the beach in the lovely little seaside village of Walcott. Simply open up that garden gate and you are RIGHT ONTO that amazing beach. Uninterrupted views of the beach, the sea and that endless sky from the garden and the house.
Walcott is midway between bustling Cromer town and sleepy fishing village of Winterton on Sea. The house is just the most fabulous place to spend time in, with lots of natural light, whiling away the hours on a gorgeous sandy beach, and an ideal base to explore all the gems that Norfolk has to offer.
In the village, you will find a dog friendly pub, dog friendly cafe (fabulous ice-creams!), a really lovely fish and chip shop and a local shop all just a few minutes walk away. Bacton, the next village (just a 15 min walk away) has a lovely dog groomer (handy…just in case 😉 ) and a fabulous dog friendly cafe (gorgeous cakes).
Walcott beach is very dog friendly with only a small restrictioned area between May and September along the ‘front’ but you can walk 65m to the unrestricted beach from the back garden on the concrete pathway above, or on the pavement to reach the end of the restriction. The coastal path is open from Hunstanton to Hopton On Sea (but 83 miles is a bit far to walk 😉 ) so you have unfettered access north towards Mundesley, or south towards Sea Palling and Winterton.
If you want to explore other beaches, head to Waxham, Cart Gap and Happisburgh. Even outwith pupping season, you will still spot a seal or two (and they sometimes have great fun following your coastal walk whilst they keep up in the water. It is a short drive to Mundesley and Cromer (via the gorgeous coastal route) or Horsey, then Winterton on Sea the opposite way.
Stalham town (3 miles away) has some lovely local shops, supermarket (Tesco) and we have lovely local individual shops dotted around our lovely coastal villages (The Fair Maiden fish shop at Happisburgh, Causeway Farm Butchers at Ingham, Ingham Farm Shop, Meales at Wayford Bridge and many more).

Everywhere you go at Sea View, you do have an amazing view. I can’t say too often how overwhelmed and in awe I am of the amazing views from the house and garden.
