The Old Lighthouse Hunstanton

Accommodation in a lighthouse? Come on! Yup. And not just any old ligththouse: an immaculately stylish four-bed lighthouse overlooking the beach!

There are plenty of quirky places to stay in Norfolk but few compare to uber-beautiful – and newly-refurbished – The Old Lighthouse.

Located on the cliffs between Hunstanton and Old Hunstanton – and overlooking the caramel sands of Hunstanton Beach – this iconic, historic building is the perfect blend of classic and contemporary – think original exposed brickwork, silver Rangemaster cooker, sleek  fireplace, achingly-hip bathrooms with fluffy white towels and a telescope for studying the night sky.

Set on two floors, the landmark property boasts an upstairs open-plan lounge-cum-diner-cum kitchen, with panoramic views of the sea and Norfolk’s famous big skies, while four en-suite gorgeous bedrooms sleep up to eight guests. There’s even a large garden and patio area, perfect for enjoying those views with a glass of something chilled on a sunny evening. In the morning, perch at the breakfast bar with a fresh cup of coffee and marvel at that sky.

Want more views? Climb to the top of the Lighthouse Tower (built in 1840) and marvel at 360-degree vistas across the Wash – on a clear day, you can see as far as Skegness!

The Old Lighthouse is also dog-friendly, so long as pooches stay out of the bedrooms, making this a wonderful place to enjoy a holiday with family or a group of friends.
