Extensively enlarged and improved in the last few years, The Patch now offers four comfortable bedrooms, all with electric heaters, hanging space and drawers. Two bedrooms downstairs are housed in the carriage – one with twin beds, the other with bunks,. Please note, there is only one shower room and toilet, which is also in the carriage next to the bunk room.

The other two bedrooms are upstairs, one with a single bed and optional folding bed, and the master bedroom with a kingsize bed and windows looking to front and back.

The rental fee includes bedlinen and personal towels, but if you wish to bring your own you can request a reduction of £7 per person. We provide a duvet and two pillows for each person…

Here there is a large wood burner to keep the place lovely and cosy during the colder months! (reasonable amount of fuel supplied), three seater settee and two arm chairs, extending table and six chairs. Radio with CD and cassette player. Landline phone.

The lounge is also equipped with:

  • Maps and books;Lots of books, guides, maps and a bookswap box with an honesty box – money to the RNLI
  • TV with Freeview, a DVD player with films
  • Games cupboard with games and pastimes for all ages

Well-equipped large kitchen with a table and six chairs, a full-size electric cooker with double oven, microwave, and all the usual small electricals, plus some extras such as a slow cooker, electric hand blender and a mixer. Plumbing restrictions mean no dishwasher, sorry!

Plenty of crockery, cutlery, cookware, glassware and serving dishes.

An under-counter larder fridge caters for daily use, but there is a second fridge and a freezer in an outhouse in the garden, which also houses the washing machine.

Iron and ironing board, vacuum cleaner etc plus First Aid kit in a cupboard between the shower room and bunk bedroom.

The garden is large, private, mainly laid to lawn with a couple of flower beds, and should be secure for all but the most determined children and dogs. Parents should note there is a lake directly opposite the gate of The Patch.

Plenty of garden furniture in the shed and garage. Large barbecue (tools in the shed). In the garage you’ll find several basic bicycles of varying sizes, great for popping down to the Beach Stores or the fish and chip shop (both open from about Easter to the end of October) or generally exploring the local area. The bikes are checked regularly. No helmets provided for obvious reasons, so you may like to bring your own.

The garden is great for an al fresco breakfast on a summer’s morning, an evening barbecue, or just sitting with a glass of wine on the bench at the front, watching the sun go down over the lake.

The Patch is a great place for children of all ages to enjoy, both inside and out.

On request we can provide a travel cot, highchair, stair gates, socket covers, a toilet step and a baby bath, all at no extra charge.

There’s a cupboard full of games and pastimes for both adults and children, and a wide range of books, plus family-friendly films on DVD for rainy days or quiet times.

Two dogs are welcome at The Patch for an extra fee. Usual maximum two, but we can be flexible.

Cars can park in the front garden – room for two or three.

There is a well-stocked general store open most of the year next to the caravan site clubhouse near the turning on to Beach Road. This offers a good variety of food, household goods, newspapers etc. A little further is the highly recommended fish and chip shop, and beyond that again the bar/café belonging to the Diglea camping and caravan site.

Snettisham Village (2 miles inland) has a small Co-op supermarket which is open long hours and has an indoor cashpoint. There’s also a chemist, surgery, vet, hairdresser, art gallery, a quirky second-hand book shop, and a charity shop – and a couple of good pubs and prizewinning restaurant.

For more serious shopping there’s the traditional seaside resort of Hunstanton about six miles away if you turn left at the main road, or turn right and drive about 10 miles to the fine old market town of Kings Lynn.
