Lighthouse summary

Valonia Cottage is one of two semi-detached cottages at the Cromer Lighthouse near the North Norfolk town of Cromer. The cottages boast spectacular panoramic views and make an ideal location for a romantic holiday.

The original lighthouse was built in 1680 but was rebuilt in 1833 with a white octagonal tower. It was automated in 1990 and from then on used as holiday accommodation.  Unfortunately, no pets are allowed at the lighthouse. 

Lighthouse description

Valonia Cottage is made up of one three bedrooms, one bathroom and a separate toilet and sleeps up to five guests, with a minimum stay of two nights. The cottage is fully equipped with a washing machine and dryer, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, microwave, TV, DVD player, gas hob and electric oven, gas effect wood burner, garden furniture, and a payphone. Travel cots, high chairs, and a stair gate for children are available and there is garden furniture to use outside.

The lighthouse and its cottages are one mile from Cromer, which is a ten-minute stroll along the beach or coastal path. Cromer has many pubs, shops, and seafood restaurants and is well known for Cromer crab sandwiches. It has a long sandy beach with colourful beach huts making it a very popular holiday destination.

The coastal path takes visitors to Overstrand where the White horse restaurant and bar is located. Many activities can be organised through Norfolk Adventure including kayaking, canoeing, rowing, and boat tours.
