About this listing
Peaceful seaside bed and breakfast by the cliffs of the North Norfolk coast, five minutes walk to the beach and nestled between the traditional seaside towns of Sheringham and Cromer. Friendly welcome, comfortable rooms and a delicious breakfast.
Hollyhock House is a detached house on the cliffs of the stunning North Norfolk coast. Situated in a private close with no street lights and no through traffic, it’s the perfect place to take a break from the noise and stress of life and totally unwind.
We pride ourselves on the food we offer. In the morning you can pick from a choice of generous and wholesome vegetarian breakfasts, using local and organic produce wherever possible, including fresh eggs from our own chickens, our own home-baked bread, and fruit, vegetables and homemade preserves from our allotment. Vegan and gluten-free diets are happily catered for.
All of our attractive rooms have extremely comfortable beds, a colour TV and DVD player, wi-fi internet access, a hairdryer, tea, coffee and herbal tea making facilities and hot water bottles.
Two of the rooms have double beds and ensuite bathrooms. A third room has twin beds, with exclusive use of a bathroom between 4.30pm and 10.30am.
The North Norfolk coast, with miles of beaches, cliffside walks and great scenery, is right behind the house. Leave your car on the drive and stroll along the cliffs to the unspoilt fishing port of Sheringham, the perfect seaside town, with charming shops and trips to nearby Holt on a fully preserved steam train. Walking in the opposite direction will take you to the sandy beach at East Runton, and further on is Cromer, famous for crabs, lifeboats and its traditional pier, one of the oldest in the country.
There are 770 acres of beautiful National Trust forest and parkland within easy reach, perfect for walking. Nearby Blakeney Point has an unmissable boat trip to see the seals basking on the beach. And you can visit Norfolk's oldest nature reserve, the salt marshes at Cley - full of wildlife and a superb site for bird watching.
The area is well-supplied with excellent restaurants and cafes to please all tastes. We'll be very happy to recommend some.
West Runton train station is in the village, just 10 minutes walk away. We're very happy to pick you up. If you're driving, you can easily park on our drive.
A good bus service also runs along the coast every 30 minutes.
We have our own allotment and love growing our own organic fruit and vegetables. We keep hens in the garden to be sure there is a good supply of fresh eggs from happy chickens. Our aim is to eat organic and source food as locally as possible.
