Norfolk Coast Holiday Cottages, part of the Old Hunstanton-based L&J Leisure Group, has added The Old Lighthouse on the resort’s clifftop as part of its portfolio of luxury self-catering accommodation.

The Grade II iconic building, located on St Edmund’s Point, was built in 1840 and operated until 1922. Today the tower provides a 360-degree view of The Wash and Hunstanton town and provides a stargazer’s vantage point.

Following the 2016 summer season, The Old Lighthouse will receive a major refurbishment to bring the building into line with the group’s other self-catering properties which provide a luxury “home from home” setting.

L&J Leisure’s marketing manager, Jac Sandy said: “We are enormously excited to announce this latest addition to Norfolk Coast Holiday Cottages’ portfolio. As a Hunstanton business, we recognise the importance of the building in the town’s history and we look forward to creating a truly unique place to stay on Norfolk’s coast. We very much consider ourselves guardians of this important iconic landmark, and our vision is to make it a quintessential part of a Hunstanton self-catering getaway.”
