Sunset Retreat offers buyers the perfect opportunity to create a holiday let business that could provide a healthy return on investment. It would also enable the buyer to also use the property as a second home or weekend retreat. The property is ideally located for those wishing to be close to the North Norfolk coast with the nearest beach just a 5 minute walk away. The property is situated in a peaceful location and surrounded by similar properties, many used for holiday lets too. Whilst there is an 8 month restriction on occupancy this would not be a problem for holiday letting and we have based our projections taking this into account. There is also the opportunity to purchase Sunset Retreat as a turn key property, meaning all existing furniture and fittings can be made available to the new owners. The property is currently used principally by family for private use and let on an ad hoc basis through Norfolk Hidden Gems.

The Location

Snettisham is a quiet and rural village just moments from the sandy beaches of North Norfolk. The village offers a good selection of small shops and pubs, notably the award winning Rose & Crown and The Old Bank Restaurant which won the Good Food Guide Best Local Restaurant in the UK 2019.

Shepherds Port Road is no more than a 5 minute walk from the beach and is a great location for a holiday home, perfect for families and those wishing to enjoy activities such as bird watching, dog walking, fishing, canoeing, sailing...the list goes on! You'll never be short of something to do.

It is also worth noting they have a great on-site bar called 'Shepherds Port Bar'  and other bars, a fish & chip shop and convenience store nearby. There is also the Snettisham Beach Sailing Club just on the other side of the lake, which has a thriving membership (sailing and social) and a large terrace for watching the sun go down into the sea straight in front of you. The sailing club bar is open at weekends and holds events as well. All forming part of the thriving community enjoying 'The Beach' life.
