I purchased the Whim in 2009. It had already been run as a successful holiday home rental business. It has undergone a period of refurbishment under my ownership, with the final work scheduled for 2013/4
The Whim occupies a fantastic position on top of the cliffs overlooking the North sea and Mundesley. There is a path down to the sea just at the end of the road. Mundesley beach is fabulous. It is clean, large and thankfully almost undiscovered by the masses.
Mundesley is an ancient English town located on the Norfolk coast. It is a quaint quintessentially English seaside resort, which benefits from being within a short journey to hundred's of excellent tourist attractions, from the Queen's Norfolk retreat of Sandringham, which she traditionally occupies during Christmas, through to numerous Anglo-Saxon and Norman churches, stately homes as well as the more leisurely aspects such as the local golf course, Mundesley's own beach and shops, amusements, walks etc.
