Beach Cottages

Scratby is a lovely little village near Great Yarmouth, on the Norfolk coast that boasts a large expanse of golden sand, known as Scratby Beach. The beach is well protected by a set of large boulders, sandy cliffs and great dunes which makes for a comfortable and sheltered day lazing by the sea, whether you’ve got planned a day of sunbathing, swimming or bucket and spading. If you're into surfing, there are also some good waves when there are westerly winds and if you fancy just strolling this endless sweeping crescent of sand, then there are plenty of walks and pathways where you can walk the dog and take in the spectacular views.


The local villages of Ormesby and St Margaret are more than well equipped for tourists without feeling over-run and they still maintain their original charm. This is an ideal holiday location for everyone, especially those with a family in tow as you are just a stone's throw away from the attractions in Great Yarmouth, without having to endure its fair-frenzied crowds. The quality and quantity of self-catering accommodation in Scratby should suit a range of group sizes from child friendly cottages that sleep 4 to 6 up to the large group cottages sleeping 8 people just a short walk to the beach. To secure one of these Scratby holiday cottages you need to book with the owner direct or property manager, many who offer online booking.
