The Patch, Snettisham, King's Lynn, Norfolk
The Patch is a comfortable, dog friendly holiday home - with a Victorian railway carriage hidden at its heart! It’s at Snettisham Beach, about two miles from Snettisham village itself, and between Kings Lynn and Hunstanton.
It has a large, enclosed, private garden, and is on the edge of a lake, a few minutes walk from a quiet, undeveloped beach where dogs are allowed all year round. Anyone looking for a peaceful place far from crowds, traffic and street lights is likely to enjoy a stay at The Patch.
On the edge of the RSPB Snettisham bird and wildlife sanctuary, with open access all year, The Patch is surrounded by a wonderful wild land where children (and dogs) can run, play and explore freely.
Available throughout the year, The Patch can sleep up to eight people in four bedrooms, two upstairs, one with a king size bed, the other with a single bed and optional folding bed. The other two bedrooms (twin beds and bunks) are downstairs in the railway carriage, as is the shower room/toilet – handy for less able or elderly guests.
The house has a large lounge/dining room, with a big wood burner. The kitchen is also a good size, with a table seating six. It’s well equipped with a full sized electric cooker with double oven, larder fridge, microwave and other small electricals, although we cannot offer a dishwasher due to plumbing limitations. There’s a freezer, secondary fridge and washing machine in an outhouse.
Other facilities include:-
A TV with Freeview, DVD player with plenty of family friendly films & CD player.
Plenty of books for adults and children, local maps and guides.
A cupboard which is full of games and pastimes for adults and children.
Outside there’s a garage with a number of bicycles for guests’ use, although we don’t provide helmets.
