Set in a quiet residential area, yet close to the wide, sandy beach of West Runton, Sea Glimpse is a much-loved, detached holiday home with everything you need for a relaxing seaside break. It is just a short walk from the beach, with shingle at high tide, but soft sand and an array of rock pools when the tide is out. Less well known than the famous ones of Sheringham and Cromer, it provides a more relaxing setting.
The coastline is littered with pretty seaside towns and villages offering great places where you can eat and shop, as well as having beautiful beaches, marshes and quays. Visit Cromer, with its Edwardian seafront and famous pier, or for a change of pace, head to the Norfolk Broads and hire a day boat or join a cruise.
West Runton itself has a shire horse centre, and close by you will also find Amazonia Zoo, several museums, the Thursford Collection (collection of steam engines, organs and fairground attractions), the Mucklebugh Collection (a military museum), numerous National Trust properties and stately homes, not to mention walks and cycle routes galore, and lots of bird watching opportunities. In fact, there’s so much to do, you’re sure to book Sea Glimpse again so you can come back and fit it all in. Beach 800 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 500 yards.

    Sea Glimpse is a lovely house in a quiet village but walkable to the beach. The house is opposite The Links Hotel and golf course (perfect if you play golf) but it is still very quiet and peaceful. The area is perfect for visiting the coastal towns and three lovely NT properties are close by and well worth a visit. We would have no hesitation in staying at Sea Glimpse in the future.

    Didn’t use downstairs shower because it was mouldy. Otherwise lovely place. Well equipped for our needs. Thought the beach was nearer than it actually was. Good base to explore the area. Front garden very untidy. Not like the picture

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We are currently at the house. No mould was found in the downstairs shower, however there was a little soap scum that had not been cleaned. The shower cubicle is due to be replaced in the immediate future and should be easier to keep clean. The front garden was untidy for this time of year. A tidying up has now been done and our gardener will make sure that the front garden is weeded on a regular basis.

    We had come to Norfolk to celebrate a birthday. Therefore decided to stay a week and visit all the area we loved so much a few years ago. It was large enough to accommodate three adults very comfortably, large size garden and a pond to watch for the frog everyday. The Links Hotel yards away so easy to pack up and have breakfast there and therefore vacate in plenty of time.

    Very nice place to stay, large lounge and dining kitchen, separate dining room we did not use. Good sized bedrooms and a lovely garden good for kids, large lawn. TV has Sky with movies and sports and there is also an xBox360. Showers not as powerful as would have liked but adequate.

    Lovely house and delightful garden in quiet residential location. Well equipped and lots of information on surrounding area/things to do. Well located for north Norfolk resorts, 1hr Broads/Sandringham. Unfortunately cleanliness was a big issue, particularly in bathroom & shower room, the result of previous guests not emptying bin & cleaners not checking/cleaning thoroughly. In our opinion the handover regime needs more care & attention to ensure property is pristine for arrival of next guests. We have since been in touch with the owners with our observations & photos, who have responded positively to our comments. Would we return? Definitely, as long a cleaning issues have been resolved.
