AUTUMN BREAKS AT THE COAST

It’s a wonderful time to enjoy an Autumn break at the coast.    The beaches are virtually empty and there is still so much to see and do in the area…

Apart from walking on our fabulous sandy beach (a matter of steps away from the chalets), you can still visit the  famous gardens at East Ruston which are open to enjoy until 27 October. You can crunch through the autumn leaves at Bacton and Pigney’s Woods, enjoy delicious pub lunches by open fires or just cosy up in our chalets….

Our favourite thing at the chalets – the wonderful uplifting sunrises and you do not have to get up at 4.30 am to watch the magnificent sight of the sun rising at this time of the year !!

What do Seascape and Seabreeze have to offer ? Both boutique, stylish chalets sleep four people in two bedrooms, are warm and cosy, full of DVDs and games to enjoy and of course, Broadband.   Outside, gated and secure decking area with a full uninterrupted sea view from both chalets and deckchairs to soak up the last of the autumn rays..

Our stylish seaside chalets are both dog friendly, bright and cheerful for you and your family – all dog restrictions end in September, so your dogs can really enjoy the beautiful beach on our doorstop – the local cafe Sugar and Spice, welcomes dogs with opens arms!!

 

We can offer short breaks, weekends or Monday to Friday or a full week starting on a Monday or Friday – possibility of flexibility subject to availability ….

We have availability and October reductions – weekend/midweek breaks now reduced from £375 to £325, 7 night breaks now reduced from £525 to £450 !

Why not treat yourself and your family to some quality time in a beautiful location in Norfolk this Autumn !

Winter at Winterton and the story of Roo…..

Although we have miles of beaches on our doorstep, it is nice to explore the local area and Winterton beach is well worth the short drive down the coast from Seascape.     A very popular beach for dog walkers with miles of unbroken beach backed by the dunes…..       IMG_1407I have lots of memories of Winterton, at High School in Great Yarmouth we had an annual sponsored walk 16 mile round trip walking along the beach GY to Winterton, turn round and walk back.   Walking on the dunes is not easy and it seemed to go on forever as a teenager, although I recall lots of larking around on the way…..     Many years ago I lived quite close to Winterton and it was wonderful to be able to jump in the car after work to walk on the beach and enjoy the light evenings in summer.

So now Mark and I return as dog walkers !   Roo, our rescue dog has been living with us since May.  She is a Spanish podenco, a breed bred for hunting, but was found as a stray living rough in a cave on wasteland in Spain with her litter.   Roo was so nervous of people I am told it took two weeks for her  Spanish rescuers to get her trust so that she could be taken in.  The good news is that her pups were homed and eventually our lovely girl found her way to us via an amazing Norwich based charity who work alongside Spanish dog charities rehoming these delightful dogs all over the world.    Have a look at their site www.supersighthounds.co.uk and have your heart broken.  Lexy, the founder, is so passionate about her dogs and her enthusiasm and energy for this cause is beyond belief.

Roo is still nervous with new people, but her confidence is coming on leaps and bounds.   She is a joyful dog, a real clown and she is well and truly under our skin! The beach is the only place we can confidently let her off the lead as she certainly hasn’t lost her old hunting instincts!    Podencos are the same family as greyhounds, and boy can you see that when she is at full pelt on the beach ! So yesterday was a happy day on the beach in the weak winter sun, with the added bonus of cake at the Dunes cafe (well dog walking does burn a lot of calories) but best of all, a FULL rainbow as we were leaving…….     IMG_1410   And for you dog lovers (so many of our guests are!) here is my Roo’s story in pictures…
