63 Cliff Hill, formerly a draper’s shop, is now a substantial town house on three floors, set five minutes’ walk from both the award-winning Gorleston beach and a fascinating dockside along the River Yare. The house stands on a prominent corner of old-town Gorleston with far-reaching views to the mouth of the river and sea.
The beach is known for its wide stretch of beautiful golden sand and safe esplanade.

How to get there:
The house is easily accessed by road on the A11 and A47 east from Norwich, which is 25 miles away. The nearest railway station is at Great Yarmouth.
Great Yarmouth is 4 miles to the north and Lowestoft 5 miles to the south.
The property was built at the end of the nineteenth century and reflects the elegance of the era. The High Street has a range of shops, coffee bars and independent boutiques as well as larger chains such as Morrison, Boots and Wilko, all within ten minutes’ walk. There is ample free parking generally around the town.
The house is very close to restaurants and tea rooms, including the Pier Hotel and Cliff Hotel. There are several good Fish and Chip bars and a row of beach shops at the near end of the promenade. A small RNLI lifeboat museum is 300m away. There are children’s playgrounds, a bandstand, a model boating lake, picnic areas and benches on the pier and low, grassy cliff.
Great Yarmouth has the Time and Tide Museum and the Elizabethan House Museum, which is a National Trust property. Burgh Castle and Caister Castle with its motor museum are also nearby. Further afield are the meandering waterways of the Norfolk broads, ideal for pottering and birdwatching. The historic cathedral city of Norwich is just 30 minutes by car, and the quiet coastline stretches to Cromer to the north and Southwold and Aldeburgh to the south.
This house sleeps up to eight people and is ideal for families or small groups.
Ground floor: large entrance hall, substantial living room with dining room table to one side, and sofas and easy chairs to the other, TV and DVD player; kitchen with washing machine, dishwasher and microwave; a downstairs toilet.

Second floor: three further large bedrooms with fine views to the mouth of the Yare; one twin with en-suite shower room and a family bathroom off the landing.
Hard-landscaped yard to the rear with some outside seating, gated from the road, through which the neighbours gain occasional access to their back yards.
