Valonia holiday home details

In association with Trinity House, Rural Retreats is pleased to present Valonia Cottage at Cromer Lighthouse. The original Cromer Lighthouse was built in 1680 but the present lighthouse, a white octagonal tower, was built in 1833 and converted to automatic operation in 1990.

Valonia Cottage is one of two semi-detached cottages at the lighthouse, which is a mile from the traditional North Norfolk town of Cromer. A 10 minute stroll along the coastal path or along the beach will take you into Cromer, where you can explore shops, pubs and sample local seafood - notably, the excellent Cromer crab sandwich. Cromer is a popular holiday destination for families, and has a long sandy beach with colourful beach huts. The pier has a theatre and cafe, and is home to the Cromer RNLI life boat - the station is open to the public. You can hire dipping nets and buckets on the pier - try to catch your own Cromer crab! There is an excellent sea-front cafe/restaurant at the lifeboat museum.

This is a beautifully situated cottage with outstanding views, our welcome hamper was lovely and the accommodation was everything we expected and more. We loved walking along the clifftop to Cromer and Overstrand. It feels off the beaten path but is within walking distance from all local amenities. We will definitely be back.

A fabulous cottage, beautiful weather. Highlights of our trip included: Watching the seals at Blakeney and a visit to the RSPB reserve. Good fish and chips, just round the corner (right then left out of the lane) and a surprisingly good meal at the Sea Marge Hotel in Overstrand. You can walk along the cliff path, but do remember a torch for the way back! C&G, London

Places to visit:- Wells-next-the-Sea, Blakeney, the beach 200 steps from the cottage well worth the effort! The H's, Harlow

Excellent accommodation. All of us have enjoyed the cottage and the area. At first we were worried the kids would be bored, but they all loved it. Football on the beach, catching crabs, a day on the Norfolk Broads. A great holiday, thank you. A&L, Derbyshire
2 March 2013
We have loved our stay at Valonia Cottage, it is warm, cosy, very clean and well equipped. We felt at home straight away and the hamper was very welcome. It's very exciting to be living in a lighthouse - the kids love it! The location is great with cliff top walks into Cromer for fish and chips. We enjoyed a day out at the North Norfolk Railway - Poppy Line - full size steam engines are amazing. Bewilderwood was a great day our for the kids to burn off energy. We will be back. C&I, Hertfordshire

An idyllic break. Gave us a bolt hole and enabled us to visit family nearby. Definitely come again. Immaculate and every possible item here. We had a happy time with good weather. Thank you. CH, Buckinghamshire
2 February 2013
This is our second lighthouse holiday - a lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings. Despite the cold spell of weather we managed some nice walks, seal trip in Blakeney followed by tea at the Blakeney Hotel. Lunch at the Lion Inn and climb aboard the steam train at Holt. Thank you - oh yes we loved the Cromer Lifeboat Museum. SM, London
12 January 2013
Our sixth lighthouse holiday and the high standard of accommodation continues. We have had just about every weather condition possible but have still found lots to do in the area. We recommend the seal trips to Blakeney Point from Morston Quay and all enjoyed "Bewilderwood" at Wroxham. We would recommend The Red Lion in Cromer and the Gunton Arms near Thorpe Market. Thanks very much for the welcome hamper - very thoughtful. The S's, Reigate

We were back after seven years and its as good as we remembered. Loved the wild and windy weather outside, whilst being warm and cosy inside. Cottage was beautifully well kept. Thank you so much. Fireworks on Cromer Pier were a good start to the New Year. The P's, Cambridgeshire
