No.2 The Hollies now called Midthatch, and is the middle of a thatched terrace of three cottages built in the late 1700s. Its current owner did extensive renovation work in 2016, installing underfloor heating below terracotta tiles in the sitting room, exposing a large inglenook fireplace and installing hand-crafted oak staircase. Midthatch became a hugely popular holiday cottage – its success owing much to its previous agent Sue Allen. However, management of the property has now passed to Julie Evans, who oversaw all the improvement work and is now agented by her at Norfolk Coastal Holiday Breaks.
The property is located in Chapel Road, a quiet single track road and is within easy reach of the beach a short walk by public footpath across farmland at the rear of the property onto the dunes, or by Beach Road.
The village of Sea Palling is well equipped with a dog friendly pub and café, small amusement arcade, fish & chip café, a small local shop and post office; a short walk from the cottage is fresh fish stall. The beach at Sea Palling has been awarded Blue Flag status in the past and the present.
