East Coast Hideaways logo


East Coast Hideaways offers a handpicked selection of luxury self-catering holiday properties including romantic cottages, seaside boltholes, Grade II listed houses and large coastal homes, all chosen because they have something lovely about them and are near the coast. 

When we launched, we knew we wanted to promote stunning inclusive holiday homes while providing a fully-managed, bespoke service that nobody else was offering. For both our guests and owners, we wanted to be able to show something that was completely different to what was on offer elsewhere.

What makes us stand out?

It’s simple. We’re committed to handpicking properties that meet or exceed our high standards – they fulfil everything we’d want for our own holidays, providing comfort and coziness in equal measure. We choose to work with owners who understand our ethos and who hold the same values as we do.  We, and our owners, understand that your holiday isn’t just for you – it’s for your entire family, whether that’s six children or four dogs, you’ll all be welcome and comfortable, knowing that the holiday homes have been picked and promoted with people like you in mind.

Where are we?

We have a coastal office in Bacton as well as bases in Norwich and Diss – but whether you’ll find us there is another matter. We spend a whole lot of time out of the office, visiting new potential properties, meeting up with our owners, and checking in on our holiday rentals before guests arrive to make sure they’re going to be nothing but utterly delighted on arrival.

We will always be driven to meet the needs of our guests and our owners, remaining flexible and always continuing to expand our in-house team – never becoming complacent or taking our owners for granted. We thrive on continuing to look for new and exciting ways to move forward and have so much more to come. 

Dog friendly holidays in Norfolk, Suffolk and Scotland - yes please!

Doggy detoxes, action-packed adventures and puppy getaways were among the top dog travel trends for 2021. According to dog-friendly travel company, PetsPyjamas, there has been an 80% increase in pup-friendly bookings for 2022 already, with more owners wanting to include their four-legged in future travel plans than ever. 

So it’s a good job our beaches are the perfect place to bring them, as practically all of our properties are dog-friendly and have so much to offer them, it would seem a shame not to. Browse our self catering cottages and choose from a wide selection of homes where your dog is jus as welcome as your kids. As after all, we are an inclusive agency welcoming all family members… and wouldn’t have it any other way. 

Bespoke packages for holiday home owners - tell me more! 

East Coast Hideaways, we offer packages to suit all owners. Whether you want to list with us and do the rest yourself, or hand us the keys and let us manage it for you, we work to your requirements. If you don’t see a package that works for you, we will create one. It’s that simple.

Some hosts don’t have the time to manage the listings themselves and others don’t want to spend all that time in front of a screen – there are better ways to spend your days, right? This is where we can help.  We list all properties on Airbnb, VRBO, Booking.com and HomeAway as well as our own website and marketing platforms, which greatly increases the exposure and ensures your property is seen by lots and lots of holiday home hunters.

You’ve put in the hard work to own your holiday rental, now you can relax. We offer a fully comprehensive, bespoke holiday home management service, taking care of multi platform listings, booking calendars, enquiries, pricing, commission and fees, so you don’t need to worry anymore.

On the approach to Walcott you go past The Lighthouse Inn pub on your right, keep going until you hit the seafront. Follow the sea wall along on your right and keep going towards Bacton. You’ll go past the Poachers Pocket pub on the right, keep going and you’ll see a little row on shops on the right with the Carmel Cafe. Just after this, the road veers off to the right and in to a layby, pull in here, the driveway to Corner Cottage is just before the last brick and flint house in the layby, tucked off the road.
