Why Robert and Claire Smith chose Hunstanton
When we saw Bracondale we both fell in love with its period features and location and whilst a lot of work was required, we knew that it would make a perfect holiday home. We believe that we have achieved our goal in making the house a superb place to stay, and when we get the chance, we love coming over to Hunstanton. The access it provides to the North Norfolk coast along with the convenience of being in town, makes a great combination. Boston Square is a lovely quiet location opposite the Millennium Sensory Park, close to both the beach and the town centre and with some great views. On a clear day in summer, we enjoy relaxing and watching the sun set over the Wash.
What makes this House unique
The ambience of the house means that you can feel yourself relax as soon as you walk in the door. We are still finding features of this Arts & Crafts house that continue to charm us. The large pub-sized pool-table is a benefit both for the grown-ups and children alike, and having a second sitting room allows those wanting their own space, to read, listen to music, or to watch something different on the telly, a great benefit. Pop round the corner for a curry or Chinese, or walk to the nearby pub for a quick pint is a pleasure we enjoy when at Bracondale. Also, there are some good restaurants in town. As an alternative, we might take a drive along the coast road for a meal at one of the many great pubs and restaurants in the surrounding villages.

Amazing house, wonderful sea views and a great location.
We had a lovely family holiday here. The owners have put so much effort into restoring the house, it is tastefully decorated and retains so much of its original character with the stained glass windows, fireplaces and the amazing staircase. It is even more spacious than it looks, all the rooms, including the bathrooms are huge but it is still very cosy and warm and the sea views are lovely. Having 2 lounges was also great and the pool table provided hours of entertainment. The garden is a sun trap and we were lucky enough with the weather to be able to sit out and enjoy the lovely warm afternoon sun (even though it was only March!). The location was also brilliant, set in a pretty square and only a few minutes walk from the local pubs, restaurants, shops, crazy golf, amusements and beach. There were 10 of us and a dog and we all thoroughly enjoyed it.
Friends yearly gathering!
Lovely house. Great location. everything you need! Large house, all very clean, large bedrooms, an ideal place to stay for a sea view and very helpful owners. Everything you need.
Awesome house, and huge!!
What an amazing place, we rented the house as a surprise stay for my mums birthday and the age range was vast, but it catered for every requirement and everybody loved it.
The location is perfect, the house is beautiful and much bigger than the photos make it look. It has everything we needed for our stay, including buckets and spades for trips to the beach!
The kitchen is very well equipped with plenty of utensils, crockery and serving bowls etc.
The bedrooms are huge and well decoratored, as well as the bathrooms.
This is a must if you are looking for a house in Hunstanton!
Great deal of effort put in to make the house comfortable
The house was ideal for large groups to get together to celebrate family events. The kitchen was fully equipped and we never ran short of anything, even when the dishwasher was running full. We thoroughly enjoyed spending tome with all our family there.
Lovely big house in great location
This is a great house for a big group. Not only does the house have lots of rooms, but those rooms are all spacious, some very spacious. Landings and the stairway are all large, and being a old property, despite 12 of us staying there it was very quiet once you were in a bedroom. The location is brilliant, a couple of minutes walk to the shops, 5-10 minutes to the various beaches and amusements. The owner was so helpful and responded to queries very quickly. Highly recommend!
Lovely, well equipped house. Comfortable for 3 generations. 2 lounges meant we could have a quiet one if necessary. We are all enthusiastic cooks so had almost all our meals at home. Room for 5 cars and a safe garden for the children. Great for the children to pop to the playground for half an hour or to the beach for some investigation of the rock pools. Fresh herbs ( bay and rosemary) in the sensory garden opposite!
The house is 200 yards from the beach and only a little further from the famous striped cliffs. The beach and cliffs face west, which means they capture the sunshine and are the perfect spots for viewing some spectacular sunsets.
The shallow beach runs for two miles along the coast to Brancaster and at low tide rock pools appear around the groynes. The seafront is bordered by large Victorian and Edwardian houses and you can walk along the top of the cliffs to the lighthouse.
The house is within a short walking distance of both the town centre and the beach and there is a frequent Coast Hopper Bus service providing links from King's Lynn to Cromer. However, to enjoy the most of access to the rest of the North Norfolk Coast, use of a car is recommended.
Whilst set in a quiet Victorian square, the house is only a 200 yard walk from the main high street.
The house provides an excellent base and access to more of the beautiful North Norfolk coast.
The house enjoys fine views across the Wash to Lincolnshire and additionally overlooks the Hunstanton Sensory Park.
Created in 2000 the Sensory Park transformed the area into a stimulating and highly accessible garden. The garden won an award for its contribution to conservation and improvement in the countryside and has proved popular with local residents and visitors.
Hunstanton is home to a fairground, aquarium and seal sanctuary, leisure pool, theatre, a number of amusement arcades and a long promenade. In good weather, boats travel out to view grey seals that have colonised sand bars in the Wash and to the north of Norfolk. The centrepiece of the town remains the large sloping green, which runs from one end of High Street to the promenade.
The principal shopping streets of the town are elegantly laid out as stone buildings, some with glazed canopies, evoking the Victorian and Edwardian eras of their construction and retaining a vibrant mixture of outlets. There is a Sainsbury's Superstore within easy walking distance and a Tesco Superstore less than half a mile away from the house.
There are many places to eat out within a short walk, from fine dining to high quality fish and chips. Just around the corner, there is an excellent curry house alongside a Chinese takeaway. in the coastal villages to the north and east of the town there are a number of notable high quality pubs and restaurants, easily accessible by car.
