An absolutely beautiful bungalow with everything you need & some lovely extra touches to make it home from home. Clean, comfortable & everything is of the highest standard.

This is a comfortable, extremely clean home, with absolutely everything you need for a comfortable stay. Apart from clothes and food, there is nothing you need to take with you, as it is so well equipped. It's in a perfect location, with Yarmouth a five minute drive away, and the beach a short walk down the road. I can't recommend it highly enough.
