The coastal path starts in Hunstanton and
along the North Norfolk Heritage Coast many further recreational activities are available including sailing, bird watching, walking and cycling to name but a few.

About a mile to the south is the Victorian seaside town of Hunstanton with supermarkets, a selection of schools and more comprehensive shopping facilities. It is also home to the very popular Hunstanton Lawn Tennis Tournament which is Britain's largest open tennis tournament, having been established in 1920.

Description
The Clock Tower dates from 1876 and is approached through large wooden doors under the clock tower, opening onto the fully enclosed coach house with some original brick paving and raised feature pond. To the right under the entrance archway is the main front door which leads into a hallway with bespoke bookcase designed by Charles Morris, pamment flooring, and separate cloakroom.

Stairs from this hallway lead up to the split level master suite with bathroom with bath and separate shower, a light double aspect bedroom above the entrance archway and underneath the clock tower and further steps down to the dressing room with linen cupboard and pressurised water cylinder and a floor hatch with ladder to hallway.

Continuing on the ground floor from the hallway is the triple aspect sitting room (the original harness room) with a fine wooden mantel piece with tiled surround and wood burner and vaulted ceiling.

A Snug with stable door onto the courtyard leads through into the wonderful large kitchen dining room with stunning views over the moat and garden. Fitted with handmade painted wooden kitchen units, under wooden worktops, bespoke dresser, painted floor boards, 4 oven gas fired Aga, and space for dishwasher and freestanding fridge/freezer, there is also a separate walk in larder with slate shelving.

The drawing room is truly spectacular, with full height windows and doors to the courtyard and a stunning full height gothic stone mullioned window designed by Charles Morris on the garden side of the room. The double doors on the courtyard side are a copy of the original coach house doors but with glazed internal doors which allow a clear view through from the courtyard to moat and the garden beyond.   The room benefits from limestone floors, soft golden limestone rendered walls, two symmetrical open fireplaces, doors on either side to the garden and the architecturally designed stunning sweeping staircase which leads up to the open mezzanine floor above.

The mezzanine landing has a seating area with French doors onto to a south facing oak balcony above the courtyard and there is also a double bedroom on this level.

Beyond the drawing room a part glazed door leads into the study with hand painted floor boards, bespoke book cases, lovely wooden ceiling and views over the moat and garden.

From this room continuing round the building a large wooden door leads into a hallway with door to courtyard and on into the bedroom wing.   Family bathroom with fine classic freestanding cast iron bath, painted china sink, pamment flooring and heated towel rail.

Three double bedrooms follow through, two of which have separate access to the courtyard and one with fireplace and French doors leading out onto the front garden. There is a further bathroom and the utility room with space and plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryer, boiler and Belfast sink.
