Fantastic house for all the family
We had an amazing break with 6 adults and 3 toddlers. Everything was provided and I mean everything - toys, books, toddler toilet seats, cutlery and plates. Plenty of crockery and glasses for the adults too. We felt completely at home and the location was great 🙂

Excellent for families
Perfect house for families and children, we were able to celebrate a 70th birthday in just the right combination of style and homeliness The kitchen was very well equipped and the bedrooms were lovely, the location perfect, a nice walk to the beach, amusements, shops etc. A brilliant choice for three generations to meet and enjoy a family weekend.

Fabulous place
House was absolutely fantastic! Spotlessly clean and immaculate throughout, very well equipped. Don't think I've stayed anywhere that provides so much in the kitchen, lovely touch of a bottle of bubbles on arrival. Close to amenities and house had plenty of space for a family of 8 with 2 dogs to spread out.

Dad's 80th Birthday
Finally after three dates changes and a year and three months from our original date we finally got to have our family weekend to celebate. We consisted of four generations, with eight adults and two children and would thoroughly recommend Poppy House. It was big, yet homely and accommodated us all very well. It was totally equipt with everything you would want, for your stay and the owner was especially helpful organising our date changes etc. Thank you very much and hope to visit again.

Family New Year
10 adults, a toddler and a dog stayed at Poppy House for 2019/2020 New Year. Spacious house with everything you need and more! Excellent location for the beach and town. We all agreed it was one of the best New Years we’ve had. Plenty of room to eat together and big enough if you wanted time to yourself. Excellent showers and very comfortable beds. Great communication with the owner. We would definitely recommend this house to anyone.

Excellent facilities and warm welcoming home
Poppy house is such a lovely warm welcoming house, with 2 toddlers and a 5 & 8 year old it had so many facilities for children (even the toddler toilet seats!). We had 6 adults and 4 children staying and there was more than enough room and a very short walk to the beach. The kitchen was perfect size and plenty of seating, we couldn’t believe all the utensils available as usually rentals are a bit sparse but there was everything we needed and more. A lovely stay in a lovely house!

Lovely stay
Great family weekend away in this lovely house. Plenty of room for us all and the dog! Beds were really comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with pans, plates etc. The prosecco, bread, crisps and milk was a lovely surprise- thank you! Unfortunately the boiler had stopped working so there was no heating or hot water but Sara dealt with it immediately and it was up and running within an hour and the house was soon warm. Location is great - walking distance to everything and some lovely pubs and restaurants. Would definitely recommend and stay again

Wonderful trip to the coast
I went to Poppy house with my family for a long weekend. Great weather so we spent all day on the beach then found some lovely pubs in the evening to eat. Fantastic house for the kids and lots to do in the area. Will be looking to go again.

Perfect location and great for families.
When arriving at Poppy house, we were not aware just how much we had on our doorstep, and what we had accessible, just by walking for 5 minutes in each direction. You just do not need to get in the car! Old Hunstanton, and Hunstanton town offer the perfect combination of quaint, and wild, on old Hunstanton beach (with a few great pubs!) and then the practicality of the town with all the facilities for kids on rainy days and for a great park trip with an good ice cream in Hunstanton town. What made this special was coming back to Poppy house, and just feeling at home. It was so well equipped. You can group together as a big party but still feel like you have your own space. There are nooks and crannies for a good afternoon snooze and everything you could need for a family is provided. The hosts really know their stuff, and are ready to deal with questions and are quick to respond. - It was a great, and memorable trip.
