About Nick Sampson

I was Born in the South of the country but have lived in Norfolk for 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

Love these chalets, stayed on this site before so we have met and got to know very good that week, local amenities all open.

Short 10 min drive to yarmouth sea front. We did take a bus ride to Norwich. Very pleasant air conditioned buses there.

All in all a lovely spot to stay....we'll be back.

Thanks Nick.

A lovely relaxing holiday at a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

As a repeat booker, we knew what a beautiful location the holiday property is, nicely kept grounds overlooking a lovely beach, and it is within easy reach of the Broads and Great Yarmouth. We had our dog with us and the access to the beach is closeby for his daily walks. The Hickling property was clean and well equipped for our stay. A lovely relaxing holiday, and we will be returning.

Thanks Nick.

Great beach holiday location

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location overlooking the lovely sandy beach with breath taking sea views from both the lounge and the patio outside. we were lucky enough to see a stunning sun rise on one morning whilst having an early breakfast. The accommodation is very well equipped with large flatscreen in lounge and also flatscreen in bedroom. Very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The owner Nick showed us in and was most helpful in explain about local places to eat and visit. A most enjoyable stay and we would certainly recommend a stay here, well be back again.

Norfolk`s best kept secret

  • 5 of 5

We found this lovely little place after a friend stumbled across it earlier in the year. Stunning location next to super sandy beach and wonderful sea views from the accommodation, which was spotless on arrival and to a very high standard for a holiday chalet. The owner Nick was very helpful and gave a frindly welcome. Loved the area so close to the Broads, will definately be back.
