About Nick Sampson
I was Born in the South of the country but have lived in Norfolk for over 30 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 Chalet in 1980

Perfect size for the two of us with a dog
Would have been a nice touch if the bed was made prior to arrival especially after long journey
Thank you for your review. Glad that you found our Hickling chalet in a Excellent location for the Norfolk coast and the Perfect size. Our 3 star Hickling chalets are provided with linen packs. Why not try one of our 4 star Barton chalets, Pine Lodge or Beachside House, where the beds are made up for your arrival.

The situation appeared idyllic, close to the sea and beach. The accommodation was small, clean and basic. Although there were two double bedrooms there was very little space around the beds and we had to use the second room for our suitcases and clothing. It would have been a real squash for four. Thank goodness we had brought our own duvet and pillows as those supplied were of poor quality and would have been inadequate.
There was convenient parking for one car. Entirely our fault for choosing this time of year to visit but you really got the impression that it was definitely ‘end of season’ in Norfolk with many shops etc closing down for the year. Behind our accommodation was caravan city, mostly all empty and generally everywhere felt ghost like, even the beautiful birds in the Broads had mostly gone although of course there were some if you knew what to look for but again an air of quiet everywhere.
Thank you for your review. Our Hickling chalets are a standard size in the industry for a 3 star holiday chalet. Why not try one of our superior 4 star Barton chalets which has a much larger bedroom and larger bed, or our Beachside House which has plenty of room for 8 and also the same stunning sea views. Glad that you found our Hickling chalet clean and in an idyllic location, close to the sea and beach, with adjacent convenient parking.The duvets and pillows are normally of a good quality and renewed regularly, we carry a large stock and would have been happy to have changed any not up to our high standards. Most guests that come late in the season do so to enjoy the peace and tranquillity offered that time of year, there are still plenty of things to do in Norfolk all year round and our local village pubs, restaurants, wine bar, minimarkets, bakers, café are open all year! Norwich is in the top 10 shopping centres in the UK and of course is open all year. The local seal colony is a particular attraction this time of year with the fluffy pubs being born on the beach.

Great location next to super sandy beach
The Owner met us and showed us into our chalet, which was very comfortable and clean. But the best aspect was the fantastic sea view! We couldn`t believe the views both from inside and outside the chalet, where you had your own patio area with table & chairs where you could have a drink and enjoy the view. Other guests staying were super and the location was grat for exploring the Norfolk Broads. Hope to come back for another visit soon.
Amazing sea views!
Our second stay at Wakefield Court Beach, tried the Hickling chalet this time and wasn't disappointed. Clean & comfy and with that amazing sea view. Nick was on hand at the end of the phone when we had a problem. Great customer service! Thank you for a lovely stay again.
Smaller than expected
Although Nick was incredibly helpful and sorted all problems that we mentioned, right away, we were shocked to find the the chalet was not the entire block that is in the picture, but was only half of the pictured block. The kitchen is sufficient for small meals, but my husband (a chef) found the small bar fridge and no extractor rather frustrating. The barbecue requires a major service, which we actually didn’t tell Nick, as only tried it on our last night. We also thought from the picture that we were away from others and had a private area of our own, however the 6 chalets all look into the sea and are in a sort of horseshoe, so your privacy is not a strong point. As it’s 3 star, we didn’t expect much from the beds, but they could do with better mattress protectors or something to stop the springs from digging into you. I would suggest getting the bed service, as after a 4 hour drive, making beds was not wonderful! Also, the linen is very basic, but good enough for 3 star. We will return to Norfolk as the area itself is lovely! There are stones on the beach, so water booties are helpful as our kids found it very uncomfortable getting in and out the sea. I highly recommend Winterton Beach and The Norfolk cream shortbread is glorious!!!
Thank you for your review. A little surprised that you were confused by the pictures, our Hickling chalets are a standard size for this type of accommodation, but still probably offering more space than a hotel room or a caravan. Each chalet does have its own alfresco dining area with patio furniture overlooking the sea. The 6 chalets are not directly overlooked and offer far more outside space and privacy than the larger holiday parks norm. Plus next to our very own sandy beach!! Apologies if you found the mattress not to your liking, we are in the process of changing to Memory Foam mattress`s. If its more space with the same stunning sea views you are after, why not try our Beachside House!
Thanks Nick Proprietor Beachside Holidays Norfolk.
Where the accommodation was, absolutely gorgeous but the accommodation needs some attention.
The accommodation needs a good clean and the beds were very uncomfortable. The bedding provided had stains on them. Where the accommodation was situated was absolutely gorgeous. The views were amazing and the grounds were well kept.
No mention of any issues were made to us at any time during your stay, our linen packs are provided by a third party and we keep a large stock. We would have been only too pleased to have exchanged for you. We have an excellent group of cleaning staff and our chalets are normally spotless as you can see from the other reviews. Occasionally things can be missed, we are happy to attend to any problems we are made aware of at the time.
Glad that you found the location gorgeous!
