Seahorses is a very successful holiday let, situated in the heart of Sea Palling village within easy walking distance of the very beautiful sandy beaches and the local amenities.
The property is popular for a number of reasons including of course its situation close to the coast; it is single story, has a fully enclosed garden, off street parking and is comfortably furnished & styled to appeal to a broad cross-section of guests. Seahorses currently welcomes up to two dogs which is excellent for attracting bookings and being single story means it can appeal to all age groups too.
Currently Seahorses performs very well and as it stands welcomes just three guests, only accepts full week bookings and does not allow children under the age of 12 to come and stay. There is definitely scope to improve yields further by relaxing the short break and children restrictions and potentially looking to incorporate an extra single bed or change bedroom two into a double room so that four guests could come and stay.
Seahorses is marketed by Norfolk Cottages, a leading local booking agency and they are accepting bookings for later in 2020 and into 2021. The current owners employ an excellent housekeeper who is able to offer housekeeping, laundry and some property management services on an ongoing basis to the new owners if required. The cottage is also available as a turn key, meaning there would be no need to update marketing images and with everything in place to ensure a seamless change of ownership and continuation of income.
Sea Palling has a wonderful sandy beach, which has been awarded and retained the coveted Blue Flag award for several years. As well as good swimming, there is also provision for launching personal water crafts. A toilet block, built only a few years ago, is situated next to the ramp leading to the beach.
There is a pub, the Reefs Bar, situated at the foot of the ramp leading to the beach, cafes, amusement arcade, a Post Office and general store, farm shop and a stall which sells fish caught locally.
There is a regular bus service during the week to Norwich for shopping and sight seeing. It is equidistant from the seaside resorts of Great Yarmouth and Cromer, which can also be reached by bus. Sea Palling has its own cycle hire.
If you are interested in nature then the Norfolk Wildlife Trust reserve at Hickling is only five miles away and both the NWT and RSPB have reserves easily reached by car or bicycle. A walk along the beach towards Waxham and Horsey (National Trust) may well be rewarded with sightings of seals. For historians there is the famous Waxham Barn which has been rebuilt following severe damage in the Great Storm of October 1987. Originally built by the Wodehouse family in the late 16th. Century, it is one of the largest in the country.
In December 2014 Norfolk's first stretch of England Coastal Path opened from Sea Palling to Hunstanton via the Norfolk Coast Path. The majority of this walking trail runs through the dramatic landscape of the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
