Daisy Cottage, Sea Palling
Priscilla, Alfie, Tilly and Esther
See our other great guest comments in our Guestbook where the words amazing, fantastic, relaxing, comfortable and friendly crop up a lot!
Daisy is a traditional Victorian terraced cottage and has the original floorboards taken back to the bare wood and sealed and the original feature doors but all the fittings and furniture are brand new and to a very high and comfortable standard. Its location on Beach Road in Sea Palling means that the beach is a very short and easy walk away. Sea Palling has Blue Flag status granted to it by the Keep Britain Tidy campaign for 2014/15 and again for 2015/2016. Quite an achievement for such a small place. Read about it here.
When you arrive:

Sanded and sealed floorboards and rugs with the solid wood dining table to seat 4, matching chairs and sideboard and a large window into the garden beyond. Understairs cupboard has plenty of room for storage and has the dog supplies (throws, towels, bowls etc)

The new owners have left the garden just as it was when they bought the house, a real treasure trove of planting in a cottage garden style, very charming with something interesting growing all year round.

The next section is like a secret garden, still fenced off but adventurous jumpers may find a way out. There is a wooden table and chairs just outside the kitchen window and a barbecue available in one of the charming old sheds covered with flowering climbers.
Up the stairs (steeper than in modern houses but with a handrail) there are the ......
From the front door the beach is approximately 2 minutes walk up Beach Road. Just by the beach access is a dog friendly bar - Reef Bar - with plenty of outside seating, plus a couple of cafes and fish and chip shop and one small amusement arcade. In the other direction along Beach Road there is the village shop and a quirky little fresh fish van round the corner.
The beach is sandy and has an artificial reef of rocks which forms a protected area of shallow water.
To the right of the ramp they are permitted year round and you can walk for miles on the sands and in the dunes.
