About Nick Sampson

I was Born in the South of the country but have lived in Norfolk for 27 years. I love the big beautiful Norfolk skies and the golden sandy beaches, may be some of the best in the world! The lovely countryside & waterways of the Norfolk Broads and the vibrant City of Norwich. My favourite past time is to sit and have lunch on a sunny summers day at a riverside pub and watch the world go by. Or for something more energetic, a cycle along the quiet country lanes.

Nick Sampson purchased this house in 1987

Why Nick Sampson chose California

Beachside Holidays in Norfolk enjoys a stunning location next to the super sandy beach at Scratby. This exclusive location is ideal for; exploring the coast, long walks as far as the eye can see, along sometimes deserted sandy beaches and the odd inquisitive seal joining you. The Norfolk Broads just on the door step for sailing, boating, walking and of course the wildlife. For shopping, eating out and the night life Norwich is just a short drive.

What makes this house unique

If you just want some peace and quiet by the sea then there`s no need to go any where, enjoy the sea views whatever the weather from inside the house or out in the garden next to the beach. But there`s so much more to do whatever your taste in the surrounding area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a great holiday, helped by staying in such a lovely house. Location is excellent with a 2 minute walk to the beach and the views from the garden are fantastic! Only good things to say about the house and the Hot tub and Nick has been an excellent and welcoming host. We were also fortunate to have had the best 2 weeks of weather of 2012 meaning we were in swimming every day. Keep an eye out for the seals that pop up in the water every now and again - a fantastic sight! Thanks Nick for your help and friendly welcome. The Birds - Kent (August 2012)

We have had a wonderful holiday at Beachside House. The view from the gazebo is truly breathtaking, especially on the nights that there was a full moon and the moon light shimmered over the water, it was amazing. Beachside House is beautiful, we had everything we needed and more, we were perfectly happy relaxing in the comfort of the house.The Briscoe`s - Cheshire (August 2012).

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic time staying in beachside. Our age range was 12 to 65 and the house and location were perfect for all. All amenities near by, lovely carvery served at the California tavern and the beach steps just round the corner. The house provided everything we needed, well equipped kitchen, good storage in all bedrooms, plenty of seating inside and out. It was immaculately presented throughout. I would thoroughly recommend staying here. Great memories were made. Thankyou

Great house for family holiday

  • 4 of 5

Great house - good sized garden perfect for playing football!! Really well equipped kitchen.

I was expecting to be able to access the beach from the end of the garden but it’s on the edge of a cliff so you have to walk round. It wasn’t a problem but something to bear in mind especially if you have people staying with mobility issues.

Lovely sandy beach and plenty to do in local area and caravan park next door. Nick was very welcoming and we had a great time.

Wonderful house, in a great setting.

  • 5 of 5

The location of this house is perfect, we stayed in the winter so was extremely quiet, but that suited us. The beach is so close, we enjoyed cold, windy walks, with some seal spotting, which was amazing. There is a pub called The California Arms just around the corner that served an amazing Sunday carvery and is within walking distance. The house is extremely well equipped, warm and cozy. The hot tub was a great luxury. The house was extremely clean and Nick the owner was very welcoming as was the food basket. We really enjoyed our stay and only wished we had made it for longer. We will definitely be back!

Lovely house amazing location

  • 5 of 5

We have had a wonderful holiday at "Beachside House", a warm and friendly welcome. The view from the gazebo is truly breathtaking, especially on the nights that there was a full moon and the moon light shimmered over the water, it was amazing. Beachside House is beautiful, we had everything we needed and more, we were perfectly happy relaxing in the comfort of the house. The hot tub was brilliant, a wonderful treat, the children loved it. The beach is beautiful and we have had lots of fun playing in the sand and our eldest daughter was brave enough to go swimming in the sea! We will definitely be recommending Beachside House to all our friends!
