Beachside Holidays, Norfolk

Beachside Holidays (Norfolk) is a wonderfully small  family run exclusive holiday park set in a private location called Wakefield Court Beach.  You’ll be greeted with amazing sea views and be able to take the very short walk to the unspoilt and uncommercial Scratby beach which you can see just below the properties. 

The holiday park is owned by Nick Sampson; he is there to meet you and show you around and answer any questions you may have.  He personally lived in the Beachside House for many years so he knows the area very well and has run this park for over 30 years.

The gazebo and stunning sea views from Beachside House, Scratby

The sitting room has a stunning view of the sea and leads out to the private garden, at the bottom of which is a gazebo with table and chairs – a fantastic place to sit and admire this very special view with a glass of something and a natter with family or friends.

Alternatively, on a lovely evening, you could wander through the dining room (which seats 8) and out onto the patio courtyard and have your evening meal there.  Tables and chairs are provided for your comfort.  

The very modern and contemporary kitchen at Beachside House, Scratby

And you can cook your meals in the beautiful contemporary state-of-the-art kitchen which has everything you would need for your holiday; a larger larder fridge, dishwasher, oven and hob, microwave, espresso coffee machine and so on.  You won’t be short of anything here!

Upstairs, the 4 bedrooms comprise 1 king size bedroom, 2 doubles and one with a combination bed which is a 4 ft double and then a 3ft single above, like a bunk bed.

One of the bedrooms at Beachside House

As well as having a family bathroom upstairs with a double jacuzzi bath and a separate shower cubicle, there is also a downstairs bathroom with a double walk-in rain shower, perfect for getting that sand off your feet before going upstairs!

And one other thing -  if you like hot tubs, there is one for your use here!  It’s actually in the Garden Room which is a separate building just outside the house but free to use with Beachside House.

The outside space which comes with this house is perfect for privacy and views!  You can enjoy the peace and quiet as it’s a private garden, but also have the advantage of the wonderful sea views. 

If you take Beachside House (you can find out more about the house here), Nick has provided this property with kayaks, body boards, wind breaks and other beach gear, so no need to stuff the car full to the brim with all the awkward beach paraphernalia!  A perfect get-away!

As this has a 4 star self catering Gold Award, beds are made up for you before you arrive.   Just as an aside, this isn’t the case with the Hickling chalets which are 3 star so you have a laundry pack at these chalets.

Barton Chalets

One of the Barton chalets with sea views

This superior Barton chalet is divided into two individual chalets which both have one king size bedroom but plenty of extra room for spreading out.  

Yet more amazing sea views from the Barton chalets

They were redesigned in order to give you lots of space, hence the one king sized room rather than the two bedrooms as in the Hickling chalets.  

Just as a reminder, No. 5 Barton Chalet is NOT dog friendly, but No. 6 Barton Chalet is dog friendly!   And both of these Barton Chalets hold a 4 star chalet Award.

The bedroom in one of the Barton chalets

Yet again, these chalets have superb views overlooking the sea.  This particular chalet is on the left hand side of a horseshoe of chalets within Wakefield Court Beach private holiday park. 

Both of these Barton Chalets have a patio area outside where you can enjoy a drink or evening meal whilst admiring the wonderful sea view.  Or if the weather isn’t quite so kind, then why not relax in the lounge but still appreciate the fantastic view!  

All of the chalets have fitted kitchens.  As mentioned above, both of these Barton chalets have just one large bedroom but can have the addition of a Z bed as there is plenty of space, so they could sleep up to 3 people.

A modern bathroom with shower is in both of these chalets, and all are double glazed.

You can book one of these Barton Chalets, or check availability here

Hickling Chalets

The sitting room/diner in one of the Hickling Chalets

Here you have a choice of 4 Hickling Chalets, 3 of which are dog friendly.  All of them have the stunning sea views.

The difference between the Hickling chalets and the Barton chalets is that the Hickling Chalets have 2 double bedrooms instead of the one.  But as with the Barton Chalets, they also have a seating area outside with table and chairs so you can enjoy the days whiling away the time watching the sea and the sun.  These chalets are 3 star chalets meaning you will receive a laundry pack when you arrive.  

The bunk bed room in the Hickling chalets
No. 2 Hickling Chalet

Pine Lodge

Pine Lodge at Beachside Holidays Norfolk

Now here is something completely different to all of the above.

Pine Lodge is a log cabin and makes for a very different holiday.  Fully clad in solid pine inside, this is a chance to have a completely unusual chalet experience.  It’s still situated in Wakefield Court Beach so remaining private, but it is also very slightly tucked away in one of the corners.  You still have the wonderful sea view, but you also have your own private decking with table and chairs as well as a private area at the rear of the Lodge.

As with all the chalets, there is a fully fitted kitchen, a modern shower enclosure and W.C.
