The Old Lighthouse is set on the cliffs of North Beach, Hunstanton. As you can expect the views are sensational! Hunstanton is a popular traditional seaside town, with a long Blue Flag sandy beach backed by distinctive striped cliffs. There are reminders of its Victorian origins including the promenade, the large green and the attractive esplanade gardens.
Hunstanton town offers a host of activities for the family including the Sea Life Centre, a fun fair, tennis courts, bowling green and a sports and leisure centre with indoor swimming pool. A little further along is quieter Old Hunstanton, which is a picturesque village with mellow carrstone houses and an impressive medieval church, two cliff-top pitch and putt courses and a championship golf course. There is also access to the nature reserves and coastal footpaths, giving good bird watching.
Boasting a superb position, just yards from the sandy beach, is this former lighthouse, which has wonderful sea views from almost every window. The accommodation is spacious, light and very comfortable with a pleasant, relaxing atmosphere.
The Old Lighthouse is very spacious with four bedrooms that can sleep 8 people. On the ground floor, there is one bedroom with two twin beds. The 1st floor offers the rest of the bedrooms. The master bedroom offers outstanding views of the coast and a four poster bed which is a pleasure to wake up in. The second double room on the first floor is spacious with quality oak furnishings while the fourth bedroom in the lighthouse has bunk beds and is ideal for the kids. The 1st floor also has a bathroom including shower and toilet.
On the ground floor you can find the kitchen, which offers excellent views of the sea and is equipped with an electric cooker, fridge/freezer, microwave and dishwasher. The dining area is linked to the kitchen and offers a superb breakfast viewing of the coast. The 1st floor sitting room also offers outstanding views and is attractively furnished and comfortable with digital plasma TV, DVD/CD player and electric fire.
The Old Lighthouse also has a garage that features a snooker table, ideal for rainy days. When it's nice weather, guests can enjoy the garden up front. It is an enclosed lawn area, which is very convenient if you have small children. The garden also offers parking space for up to three vehicles.

Brilliant family accommodation
Staying in a lighthouse is superb of course, but staying here with your whole family is an unforgettable experience. The interior is not the most modern, but it suits well. Great walking, lots of things to do and at night we couldn't imagine a more cosy place to be. Hope to be back soon!
