The Vicarage Apartment
SLEEPS 4 - TWO BEDROOMS - DOUBLE AND TWINS
This lovely Victorian building was originally the vicarage belonging to the nearby St Edmunds church in Hunstanton and was converted into ample apartments several years ago.
Only a few minutes’ walk to the beach and town centre this lovely second floor apartment has a distinctive but friendly ambiance as soon as you enter. It is ideally situated so you can leave the car and explore the town. Cliff tops and local holiday amenities are only a stroll away
The light and airy apartment has been a family holiday home for many years and offers accommodation for a small family or couples/singles who appreciate antique and historic items of interest. The owners have retained original features and tastefully furnished the rooms in a minimal and characteristic style with Edwardian and Victorian period pieces. Parking space for two cars, gas central heating and mostly fully carpeted but no garden. But who needs a garden when there is plenty of other areas in Hunstanton close by to relax? Guests can also sit and view the sea from the lounge windows or the turret and small roof top parapet (at own risk).
Offering a different style to our usual holiday homes, we are sure that the accommodation will appeal to many guests seeking something unusual, or maybe quirky and individual.
Available all year the property offers the perfect escape from busy life. There is a communal entrance with staircase to the private entrance. Wide hallway. Spacious lounge with bay window which enjoys birds eye views overlooking the town to the sea and narrow iron stair ladder into the turret with higher sea views. There is a door onto the small parapet protected by iron railings but guests must be aware of their own safety. Perfect for sitting out taking in the surroundings and no more. Guests may use this at their own risk with no responsibility to the owners or agents.
