About the property

2 bedroom bungalow with large conservatory

This detached bungalow is situated in a quiet close just 200 metres from the sandy beach and sea. There is a large conservatory at the rear of the property where you can sit and enjoy your meal whilst looking out over the south facing garden. The large living room has 2 comfy sofas with satellite TV and a lovely fireplace.

The kitchen is fully equipped to make this property a home from home.

The master bedroom has a king size bed and a triple door wardrobe space, as well as bedside cabinets.

The twin room has 2 single beds and for those extra guests there is a sofa bed in the 2nd living room which sleeps 2. The bungalow also has Wi-Fi included in the rental costs.

The property also has full central heating for those out of season breaks.

Bird watching: North Norfolk and neighbouring Suffolk have several bird watching reserves, with Breydon Water being only 5 miles away. The North Norfolk coast is within easy reach offering 4 miles of tidal foreshore and salt marsh with superb bird life. Brancaster Staithe Nature Reserve, Blakeney Point, Cley marshes, Wells and Hunstanton are just a few of the North Norfolk attractions for bird watchers and tourists alike.

About an hours drive away in Suffolk you will find the bird and nature reserve of Dunwich Heath and Minsmere Beach. This is a National Trust heathland conservation area with good walks and spectacular views.

Norfolk Broads: For a day out with a difference hire a Broads cruiser for a lazy day floating along the famous Norfolk Broads.. There are plenty of riverside pubs to stop for a refreshing lunch before continuing on your relaxing journey. If fishing, bird watching or even wind surfing is your thing, then the Norfolk Broads is the perfect place.

Places of Interest: With the popular seaside town of Great Yarmouth only 5 miles away there are too many attractions to list all of them. One of the closest is Caister Castle, a historic ruin which is home to a fine collection of Classic Cars. The award winning Time and Tide Museum in nearby Great Yarmouth is set in an old smoke house and offers a fascinating insight into Yarmouth’s fishing heritage. The city of Norwich is only 20 miles away, with superb shopping and both the Cathedral and Castle within walking distance of the city centre.

Southwold in Suffolk is a genteel seaside town with many individual shops and jewellers. It is famous for amber jewellery and one of the shops has a small amber museum.

Both in Southwold and elsewhere there are many fine restaurants to try, including a noted sea food restaurant in Great Yarmouth.

Super Scratby Stay

  • 5 of 5

Had great time at Scratby and surrounding area. Bungalow great for a base. A little dated in furnishings but non the less clean and tidy. Everything included in price (such as heating bed linen towels). There was even a washer, whirligig and pegs for drying clothes and dishwasher. Large conservatory was super and a lovely private garden. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

Lovely bungalow in a quiet area - highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay in Scratby. The bungalow was clean and spacious with all the equipment you could need. Children loved the garden and the conservatory was great for dining and chilling. Scratby beach was fantastic for the children - 3 and 5- and it was really central for trips to Cromer and Norwich as well as Great Yarmouth being a few minutes away.

Would highly recommend and would love to stay again if we visit the area in the future.

Excellent Property and Location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 17 nightingale Close. The accommodation was excellent with respect to sleeping and dining needs, together with an abundance of towels and bed linen. The conservatory was ideal for family dining . Nearest shop is a Premier store which has all the basic supplies, with a Tesco extra anly 10 minutes slow drive to Caister.

The location proved ideal for trips to Amusement parks fo the children, boating on the Broads and visting the Seals at Horsey Gap. Local restaurants are basic, but clean and comfortable with the staff being very polite and welcoming.

Booking via Homeaway was professional and easy, with rapid responses from both Sandra, the owner, and Homeaway on any questions regarding location facilities etc.

We will definitely recommend this property to our friends and family and won't hesitate to rebook should we be visiting in the future.
