On the Cromer Lighthouse site with spectacular sea views, this is an interesting one bedroom cottage which has an open plan sitting/dining/kitchen area with a domed bedroom ceiling. The bedroom has been formed from the circular base of the lighthouse tower.
In association with Trinity House, Rural Retreats is pleased to present The Link at Cromer Lighthouse. The original Cromer Lighthouse was built in 1680 but the present lighthouse, a white octagonal tower, was built in 1833 and converted to automatic operation in 1990.
With its spectacular sea views, The Link is one of two semi-detached cottages at the lighthouse, which is a mile from the traditional North Norfolk town of Cromer. A 10 minute stroll along the coastal path or along the beach will take you into Cromer, where you can explore shops, pubs and sample local seafood - notably, the excellent Cromer crab sandwiches. Cromer is a popular holiday destination for families and has a long sandy beach with colourful beach huts. The pier has a theatre and cafe, and is the location of the rnli life boat station which is open to the public. You can hire dipping nets and buckets there - try to catch your own Cromer crab from the pier! There is an excellent sea-front cafe/restaurant at the lifeboat museum.

Guests should be aware that the lighthouses and equipment need regular and sometimes emergency maintenance. Therefore visits by maintenance staff may occur at any time during the year. However, staff will do their best to ensure guest privacy at all times.
Guests are reminded they are renting a heritage building, therefore certain features such as steps, stairs and floor levels may not comply with that of a modern building. As such, we would advise guests to acquaint themselves with the premises on arrival and exercise caution accordingly.
Access roads to the lighthouse site are narrow with limited passing places and, dependent on the season and site, there is the possibility of overhanging vegetation due to cutting restrictions during bird breeding seasons or other environmental reasons.
Sorry, no barbecues, fireworks, drones or remote controlled flying equipment permitted.
The Link is a lovely place to stay, it’s quite something to see the lighthouse working after dark. Beautiful view and a lovely walk into Cromer via the cliff path. Would love to return. Nice welcome pack too. A thoroughly enjoyable stay.
Good location, lovely views but accommodation was a let down, bedroom was damp, shower room needs a complete refit to justify a 5 star property, mastic pointing is black with age or mould, likewise tile grouting in places, windows look like they have never been cleaned and general decor to window frames is disgraceful. (we have photos but there is not an option to post them here, but will post them if possible on Trip Adviser) We avoided using the Microwave it was still dirty from its previous use. Would we recommend it - NO. We also paid premium damage waiver, even though no damage was done this is not refunded.
Quirky accommodation in a stunning location.
