Sea-Glimpse’s owners describe it as an ideal apartment for couples and small families. They also accept one small/medium dog per stay.

It has a comfortable sitting-room, with a fully equipped kitchen off, and additional accommodation in the shape of a master bedroom, one twin bedroom, with travel cot, and a full-size bathroom.

Old Hunstanton’s wide, sandy beach is popular with wind and kite surfers. It’s also popular with holidaymakers and day-trippers during the summer months, but never seems to get towel-to-towel overcrowded like the nearby traditional Victorian season town of Hunstanton. Besides, you’ve got a dog and he needs a walk. A couple of hundred yards from the beach entrance, heading east towards Thornham, the crowds start to thin. In less than a mile you’ll have the beach to yourself. Stop for a picnic or carry on to Thornham, about a two-and-a-half hour walk. Wend your way along the sea defences surrounding the salt marshes and call in for lunch at the Marco Pierre White-owned Lifeboat Inn. Don’t be put off by the lofty chef association. Prices are in line with other local eateries.

If you fancy a day off from long walks, there are plenty of other attractions in and around Old Hunstanton. Sea-Glimpse is just a two-minute walk from a deli/bakery/general store, a lovely ‘handmade’ gift shop, an art gallery and craft barns. Or you could just go and sit on the beach. We do that often, whatever the weather.
