Wow what a fantastic get away

  • 5 of 5

I’m writing this review on behalf of my parents who have just spent a weekend at The Lookout! They had a fantastic time despite the bitterly cold weather. They couldn’t have had a warmer welcome. A bottle of wine, some sweet treats for them and some doggy treats for their pooch too! Bev the owner popped in just to check they had everything they needed and to answer any questions they had. The house was extremely well equipped (Bev had thought of everything they could need) and they said how lovely, warm, comfortable and spotlessly clean the whole house was.

The views are lovely, there’s easy access to the beach and lovely walks along the beach front. Mum and Dad are already planning their next trip there and we certainly intend to book up too. Thank you very much Bev for all your help in arranging this surprise trip for them and making it such a lovely (well deserved and much needed) break for them.

Beautiful house and view warm in character

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful time. Wanted to take my girlfriend somewhere special. Highly recommended. I did a lot of research and the lookout looked the best. It didn’t disappoint. We bumped in Bev on the way in very friendly. There was a bottle of wine and delicious posh chocolate ginger biscuits! Not like a hotel, the house is actually warm and cosy, feels human, with everything you need, but without feeling like your stepping into someone’s house and personal style. Not an easy thing to pull off actually. Wonderful views and walks. Very beautiful sea. I’ll be recommending it to friends. Thanks for a great time.

Clean beautifully decorated upside down house

  • 5 of 5

We stay here for christmas this year. We had four adults and 2 dogs in the Lookout. Everything was perfect. Bev came to greet us and to show us the ins and outs of the property before leaving us to our christmas break. I could not fault Bev or the the Lookout in anyway it was amazing. Everything has been freshly decorated with new furniture. We cooked a full christmas dinner there and the kitchen was very well equipt to do this. Eating breakfast on the balcony wrapped in a blanket was a perfect way to start the day. There are a couple of pubs nearby, a chinese and a fish and chip shop and a spar. We did not have to leave mundsley with the walk on the beach by the Lookout and the walk at the other end of mundsley it had everything we all wanted. Thankyou to Bev for putting some christmas decorations up and for making our christmas break brilliant.
