Stone's Throw Cottage

UK England East Anglia Norfolk

24 Victoria Road Mundesley Norfolk ​NR11 8JG
Charming terraced cottage in the heart of Mundesley, home to one of the best beaches in Norfolk.

Contemporary style – and an attention to those little details that make you feel not merely welcome, but instantly at home – has made something really special out of this Victorian terraced cottage, situated on the Northeast Norfolk coast just yards from an award-winning blue flag beach.

The glass-fronted wood-burner in the living room and a sun-trap patio ensure it is comfortable year round, and little touches, such as a bottle of wine (and milk) chilling in the fridge and a Bluetooth speaker are both thoughtful and practical: put your favourite playlist on, light a fire, pour a glass of wine or make a pot of tea …. and forget about unpacking until tomorrow. It is also very child-friendly (travel cot, high chair, games, puzzles, DVDs, even baby cutlery and a baby bath), with the beach and an unusually imaginative playground (with a real boat to play in) a couple of minutes’ walk away, not to mention a fab mini-golf course! As for Mundesley, it's a charming, traditional seaside village, split between a quiet inland quarter and a slightly busier seafront stretch, with a handful of shops, cafés and pubs which serve food if you don’t feel like cooking, and including an excellent beach café down on the extensive sandy beach.

Stone's Throw has three bedrooms (comfortably sleeping five in two doubles and a single), and a very well-equipped stone-flagged kitchen/dining room with a washing machine, microwave and a Nespresso machine. The lounge has a wood-burning stove (complete with a basket of logs) and is a wonderful place to curl up on a chilly evening, and the south-facing, sheltered courtyard -– kitted out with chiminea and BBQ – makes eating outside a real pleasure on a sunny summer evening. Other facilities include central heating throughout, a bathroom with shower, Wi-fi, smart TV and private off-road parking.

If you want to do more than laze on the beach, you can see a lot from Mundesley, either exploring further up and down the coast – the resorts of Cromer and Overstrand lie a short way north, and the seals, dunes and beautiful sandy beaches of Waxham, Horsey and Winterton-on-Sea a little way to the south. Inland there are the frankly unmissable gardens of East Ruston Vicarage and the National Trust properties of Felbrigg Hall and Sheringham Park a bit further afield. You could even head to nearby Stalham or Sutton and rent a boat or canoe to enjoy what is a relatively quiet corner of the Broads. A beautiful place to stay, in a special part of Norfolk. 

Best local places to eat and drink

There are some fabulous places to eat nearby. Mundesley has a great choice of cafes, a fabulous fish and chip shop, chinese take away and village pub with wonderful sea views. There's even a seafood stall selling fresh crab, prawns, cockles and lobster.

Our favourite place to eat is The Gunton Arms at Thorpe Market. The food is extremely good and is well worth a visit at any time of year.
