The exposed brick staircase leads up to the bedrooms and bathroom (the staircase is narrow and steep typical of a property from this era). The Master bedroom has a double bed, bedside cabinets, clock radio, bedside lamps, table, chair, clothes hanging space and full-length mirror. The nice size family bathroom is accessed from the master bedroom and has bath, shower, toilet and wash basin, mirrors, towel rail and toiletry storage unit. The front bedroom is a lovely room with views towards the river.  It has two single beds, bedside unit and drawer storage unit.  There is a wall mounted TV connected to an Xbox 360 and some games and DVD’s which can be played via the XBox.  The TV has an HDMI port if you want to bring and plug in other forms of entertainment.

To the front of the property, parking is possible on the hard standing area (mounting curb required).  The back garden is large with patio area and lots of play space. There are tables and chairs to enjoy the sunshine and a fire drum available for guest use. Mature trees overhang the garden in places to provide shaded areas. The house has gas central heating and is fully furnished. Beds will be made up fresh for your arrival so all you need to do is book, park-up and move in with your clothes and toys. The property electrical connection is from a supplier providing 100% renewable energy.

The property is on a quiet no-through-road and backs on to Gorleston High Street.  There are numerous pubs, cafes, restaurants and fast-food options and a supermarket literally on the doorstep. The beach, cliffs, pier and river are a short stroll away.  The high street has regular bus services to Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft (via Pleasurewood Hills), Norwich and beyond. Access Parking for 1 car is available at the property, which is so central everything else is accessible on-foot. 

The nearest train station is Great Yarmouth (GYM) and typically costs £7-£10 by taxi each way.  Gorleston High Street has a regular bus service to Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft (via Pleasurewood Hills), Norwich and Burgh Castle.  We particularly enjoy taking the X1 bus to Norwich to visit the castle and market, have some food, a pub crawl around the historic pubs (try the Murderers) and the return buses runs hourly until 11pm.  If you are planning on using buses download the "First Bus" app for timetables and live timings.  


Neighbourhood Information - Gorleston beach is stunning all year round!  Soft sand, free parking, lots of amenities like toilets, arcades, ice cream shops, chip shops, cafes and pubs serving great food and a lovely theatre 'The Pavilion" with year-round shows.  Lovely long seafront promenade and cliff top paths and gardens great for walking, learning to cycle, jogging, skating and scooting. The Cliff Hotel overlooks the seafront with an amazing terrace with sea views, fining dining and vibrant bar at the weekend all open to non-residents. The Pier Hotel, also open to non-residents, is on the beach and river, good food and a great spot for a drink whilst the kids play. The Ocean Room is a local club and has a variety of events on and now has a terrace over-looking the beach. On the beach we have lifeguards in the summer with a safe designated swim zone. The beach area has a splash pad zone for smaller children where they can get wet and play without going in the sea.  You will also find a yacht pond if you have a remote-controlled boat, a pirate ship play park, exercise trail, golf putting green, bowls and a mile of golden sand to play on.  There is a local sailing club (GYGSC) and there are regularly paddleboarders and kite flyers enjoying the beach.
