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.

A spacious comfortable property
The house is large as are all the rooms in it. We were staying with our young grandchildren during a wet and windy period so having the extra space was very useful. Located in a quite square, the property is only a short distance from the main activities of the town, eateries etc (a one minute walk from the beach) which was also useful as we could walk to all of them. Plenty of practical stuff in the house and also to amuse so good for poor weather. House will take 12 guests and there really is room for 12 without feeling crowded.
We had a lovely half term week with extended family.
The house is huge and plenty of space for everyone to relax or play games and spend time together. Great location with everything on the doorstep. Would highly recommend for big groups
Perfect family holiday home
This was our second visit to Bracondale and we have already booked for summer 2020-it’s perfect in every way. Blessed once again with great weather, we ate outside most evenings once the children were tucked up. This is a very special place. Robert and Claire were excellent hosts and really want you to love their house as much as they do. Highly recommended!
Very hot week in July
The property was ideal for an extended-family holiday. Excellent parking facilities for up to 4 vehicles. Well appointed large rooms throughout. Excellent kitchen. Large outdoor table for up to 12 persons which was well used in the evenings for BBQs. We could have done with a parasol or two in view the sunny weather we experienced.
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.
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.
