Located at the end of a drive, Homelands offers visitors its own exclusive indoor heated swimming pool as well as being comfortably furnished throughout and boasting many character features including inglenook fireplace with wood-burning stove and exposed beams.

An easy drive leads to the North Norfolk coastline, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and renowned for its uncrowded sandy beaches, coastal walks, RSPB nature and bird reserves and is well worth a visit.

    There were lots of things we really liked about Homelands - lovely welcome pack and fruit on arrival; cleaner and her family always willing to come and sort out any problems - though they didn't solve them all! Loved the quirky old house but oven not really big enough to cope with a large group for Xmas and it is designed for big groups after all. Our children were all looking forward to using the pool but there were problems with the boiler. Again real attempts were made to fix it but in the end we stopped using it when the water temperature went up to 43degrees. Really needs proper maintenance and overhaul. Some very dusty cupboards - but then it is an old house. Some of the information out of date too - we had hoped to visit the local pub but it looked as if it had closed some time ago. Social club only open in the evening which is not so useful in winter with young children. Other pubs all a drive away so our plans for a convivial meet for lunch on Xmas eve and then walk back had to be abandoned.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at Homelands – it certainly is a quirky old house! We were extremely disappointed that you experienced problems with the swimming pool boiler. Although we were able to get someone to look at it straight away, trying to get hold of the correct parts to repair it over the festive season was extremely challenging. We will certainly be updating our local information and really appreciate you taking the time to give us your feedback.

    We agreed with most aspects of previous reviews I.e. The spiders webs everywhere and worn setees, but the swimming pool facility is first class and made the holiday for us all. The general road congestion in the area was very disappointing; and affected every outing; which is the fundamental reason for not returning to homelands.
