The Captains House has been completely renewed this Year. the rooms are new, the view is amazing, new owners very nice. Few seconds from the beach, the sea, the promenade, the town. Just few minutes from the lighthouse. In other words perfect! Forniture, bathroom and services in the house are optimum quality. If You have the chance go there.

Captains House is an absolute must for a short stay by the sea in Norfolk. The owner has meticulously prepared this house for guests and has achived that very difficult thing - making people feel completely 'at home', away from home. Both the house and the owner are absolutely charming and I could not have wished for a better 40th... More

The house was built in 1820 for Captain Ellis and has lovely views from the front living room and front bedrooms. It overlooks the sea and The Gangway, with the RNLI... More

This is a beautiful house in a stunning location. We were a group of 14 (3 generations of family) and everyone loved the house. With only 2 parking spots and 7 cars it was a bit of a shuffle but there is other parking nearby if you get in quickly! The parking and the small courtyard garden were the only... More
