“Perfect place to stay and discover North Norfolk”
Reviewed September 27, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This was an ideal location to discover North Norfolk. Perfectly suited for two adults plus dog.
The chalet is well equipped and felt delightfully cosy for our autumn break. Would definitely return if we were to revisit the area.

“Otters Holt”
Reviewed July 11, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My husband and I returned to Bacton for the first time in approx. 20 years. Otters Holt was the perfect place. It was very clean upon our arrival and very well appointed.

The veranda was ideal to sit out on and eat our meals whilst listening to the sea, which is a stones throw away. Very relaxing.

The Rainbow's End site is very dog friendly and an ideal location for the ultimate peace and quiet chill out.

Highly recommend Otters Holt and look forward to returning as soon as we can

“Peace and quiet, amazing sandy beach, great accomodation and location”
Reviewed June 2, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We've just returned from a week staying at Otter's Holt and all had a wonderful time (2 adults, 1 teenager and 2 dogs). The location is perfect, literally 2 minutes from one of the best beaches I've ever seen...wide. sweeping sands, and despite it's being half term, hardly anyone around. if you're up early enough the sunrise over the sea is stunning.

The chalet was very clean, comfortable and welcoming, and from the veranda you can hear nothing but the waves. I noticed that someone else mentioned the gas terminals, but they aren't very close to the chalet, being the other side of Bacton, and can't be seen at all from the chalet. They can just about be seen from the beach, but you'd have to know what you were looking for, and at night they're really prettily lit up!

We spent most of our time just soaking in the peace and the location. but did venture out a bit. We loved the Broads, and hired a self drive boat from Wroxham, a great way to experience the scenery. We also went to Happisburgh, a very pretty village just down the coast - visited the Happisburgh Owls (you can actually hold them!), saw the lighthouse, and had lunch at a fantastic pub, the Hill House Inn, where the dogs were welcome and the food was delicious and well-priced.

The Wi-Fi worked really well, We paid £20 for 2 devices for the week and had excellent coverage at the chalet and the chalet park - this was an absolute must for our son (14), whose life would not have been complete without social media. Our mobile phone network was non-existent (O2), which was great for us as we needed the time away from everyone and everything but if you need to be in phone contact with people while away you may need to use an internet phone service for this... WhatsApp worked fine.

There is a large grassy area between the chalet and the dunes...perfect for ball games and kite flying - we did both!

The only thing I would alter is maybe having a gate on the front of the property to keep in the dogs (and small children).

We absolutely loved our holiday are already trying to plan our next visit to Otter's Holt, this is a rare find and we couldn't have asked for more - peace, space, rest, restoration and an amazing beach

Really couldn't fault the chalet. Well maintained and equipped. Very close to the beach. Only a short stroll to local pubs and shops.

“Disappointed with the chalet”
Reviewed September 26, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

person found this review helpful

After "doing my homework", by reading up on Tripadvisor , before booking this break at the accommodation, lets say at the least, I thought that the chalet would be clean and comfortable to stay in! I thought that the 3/4 bed was total inadequate for my hubby and I to sleep in, together, but I doubt by the smallish bedroom, that a double bed would fit in there! So , my hubby ended up sleeping in one of the "hard" bunk bed , in the other room! Although, on the face of it, the chalet, appeared OK, the cleanliness , (cobwebs , behind the bathroom sink and toilet , behind furniture,) was not! Also the "deck" chairs in the living room, was not ideal, to sit in for long periods to watch TV etc.!
On the positive side, the actual location of the chalet, was doggie friendly and near the sea. But we shall not be returning, cheaper and better properties to stay in Bacton!

Obviously, beds are a personal preference, but it does say it is a small double in the details, and I've never heard anyone refer to IKEA's very popular and comfy Poang rocking chairs as "deckchairs" before. All of our guests have previously commented on the cleanliness of the chalet, so I'm not sure I understand. My cleaner is the best I've ever had. I can only assume that your Tripadvisor name "grumpyoldwoman" says it all!!
