Project Description

St Benets, Sea Palling

Sea Palling is a gorgeous seaside village, with a lovely little dog friendly pub and cafe, a fish and chip shop and a local shop selling everything (plus an onsite Post Office!)

St Benets itself, is a beautiful large family house, within a very, very short walk to our stunning Sea Palling beach, which just so happens to be a Blue Flag beach.

The beach is smashing for dog walking but do remember the restrictions in place from May to September (meaning as dog walkers, we turn right, not left, on entry to the beach)

St Benets is ideally placed – As well as being in the hub of a beautiful seaside village with all the facilities, it is ideal for exploring all along our Norfolk coast!  Turn right on entry to the beach to walk along to Waxham and Horsey…..Great for seal-spotting!  Or get out and about in the car and visit Winterton-on-Sea, or across the other side to Happisburgh and further up the coast to Mundesley, Cromer and Sheringham.

The house has many of the original Victorian features, and does remind you of a true Victorian seaside grand house!  It’s maximum capacity for occupation is 12 (across 5 spacious bedrooms), but it equally caters nicely for groups between 6 and 10.

There are 2 bathrooms, one of which has ALOT of space.   The house benefits from oil fired central heated with plenty of radiators throughout and double glazed,
making it very cosy even in winter.


Location and Facilities

When you arrive:

You will find St Benets near the beach end of Beach Road.  It is very easy to spot as it is the left hand side of a 3 storey, semi detached house on the left opposite the Old Chapel. There is room for  3 cars in the gated driveway although if you have more cars in your party, car parking is also allowed on the double yellow lines outside the house between 1 October and 30 April. Outside this time restrictions fully apply.  Parking is available in Clink Road. 24 hour tickets can be purchased from the machines at £7/day and these are transferable to other North Norfolk District Council car parks for their duration too.
