About the property

2 Storey, 3 Bedroom, Self Catering Accommodation at Corton, Lowestoft

Corton Villas are located in the tranquil Waterside Holiday Park at Corton (a small coastal village 3 miles north of Lowestoft on the Suffolk/Norfolk border).

Corton is also home to the popular tourist attraction of Pleasurewood Hills and nearby are the long, golden sandy beaches of Hopton and Gorleston-on-sea. The cliffs and beach at Corton form part of a stretch of Suffolk coastline known as the 'Sunrise Coast' and Ness-Point in Lowestoft is the UK's most easterly point - which means guests at our Self Catering Holiday Accommodation can be among the first to greet the sun.

The local area is full of market towns such as Beccles and Halesworth, quaint villages such as Somerleyton and of colour-washed, thatched cottages and numerous historic churches and Cathedrals. There are miles of beautiful golden sandy beaches to explore and enjoy along the curving coastline of the Norfolk and Suffolk shores and further inland are the spectacular Norfolk and Suffolk Broads (Britain's largest protected wetland and third largest inland waterway, with the status of a national park).

There are many other attractions and places of interest and whether your interest lies in historic buildings, wildlife parks, military museums, working steam railways or just a relaxing day by the sea, there will always be something for the new or returning visitor to enjoy. Then there is the Fine City of Norwich (the second largest and most complete medieval city in the Britain) with its Norman Castle and stunning Cathedral not forgetting (especially for the ladies) it's status as one of the top ten shopping destinations in the UK.

On-site facilities at Waterside Holiday Park include: The Coast Bar & Restaurant with amusements and pool table, a very popular Heated indoor/enclosed Swimming Pool which is accessible accessible no matter what the weather throws at it. A Children's Play Area with adjoining Crazy Golf, On-site Grocery Store, On-site Launderette (in addition to a Washing Machine the Villa) and On-site Hair & Beauty Salon. There is also Free Wi-Fi access in the Villa and in the Coast Bar & Grill (subject to reception).

Corton Villas are available for 12 months of the year making them suitable for those seeking longer term accommodation in Lowestoft

Guestbook comments from the manager

"The best holiday home I have ever stayed in"

Great holiday home. The property was newly decorated/refurbished and absolutely spotlessly clean. Holiday homes I have stayed in, in the past, seem to consist of the owners left over spare items - eg. odd glasses and mugs, non-matching chairs etc. However, this little villa was totally different. It was like the owners had kitted it out as you would your own home. Nice pictures on the walls, co-ordinated décor and bed linen, white fluffy towels, all new and matching items in the kitchen. Loved it and cannot rate it highly enough. Great base for holiday with loads to do and see within half an hour of the property. Would recommend and would definitely stay there again.

"An excellent villa with absolutely everything you will need"

Plenty of towels for everyone, every type of kitchen utensil you will need so was very happy. Friendly meet and greet from Richard and you did feel if there was a problem that you could contact Richard and Liz anytime and they would not mind. Would definitely come again and recommend. This is a lovely place to stay. 10min drive to Lowestoft and 10 mins drive to Great Yarmouth but you can catch a bus right outside the holiday park. The pool on the site is a lovely size and we all did have a pleasant stay. We had a takeaway from the Chinese one night which is across the road from the holiday park and there are two pubs in Corton village who do food. Tesco is a 5 mins drive away so all in all a great location.

Much better than any I have been in up to now (& I've been in a few!).

  • 5 of 5

So often you go to an accommodation & you get the cheapest furniture, the cheapest toaster, the cheapest shower etc, & you think 'they are only after my money & are not really bothered about providing a good service or stay'. These villas break that mold. Every thing was first rate, not basic, & it all worked (another surprise!).

Set in well maintained grounds in a quiet area, this establishment has everything you need close to hand. The on site bar has a good selection of beverages & the restaurant has a menu that will cater for just about anybody. If they don't have it, then the Chinese takeaway just over the road, or the pub next to it can be utilised.

All in all a most agreeable stay & one place I will be visiting again in the future.

Perfect long weekend away

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from corton villas and have had a lovely long weekend. The villa is perfect, everything you could want. The villa was home from home with everything, kitchen had everything to cook a meal, and the bathroom even had little toiletries. There was a lovely comfy lounge and dining table. The bedrooms were lovely and comfy and we couldn't find anything to complain about.

Waterside park is a small park with a restaurant which we didn't try but looked lovely and pool which was so warm! There was entertained for 2 nights we were there which again we didn't see. It is close to Great Yarmouth and lowerstoft and a great base to explore.

We would highly recommend this place to anyone, families or couples. We will be back but next time with the whole family! Thanks for the perfect break!

Holiday home from home

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic villa in exceptional condition. We booked for a quiet family weekend away and couldn't have found a better accommodation. The property was very clean and equipped with everything we needed and more. It was the little extra touches that made the big difference from welcome pack of tea, coffee (both instant and ground), biscuits, wine to the everyday things you always forget to take with you like washing up liquid and dish cloths. Had regular contact with Richard the owner once booked and right up to arrival. He was always courteous and helpful, answering any questions promptly. We contacted him during the stay as we thought there may be a leak in the bathroom and he came and checked the situation out immediately, thankfully all was ok.

We would recommend this property to all family and friends. The site has a covered pool which was clean and surprisingly warm. It only operates in hours of day light and has life guards on duty. Did not use any of the other site facilities but there was a bar/restaurant, small laundrette and shop on-site.

We will certainly go back and would recommend staying to anyone looking for a fantastic villa on a quiet site on the Norfolk coast, situated between Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft.

Car: recommended


There is direct access to Corton Sands from Waterside Holiday Park (less than 5 minutes walking) this access is via steep steps, easier access is a 15 minute walk away. However, Corton beach is not expansive especially during high tide and a much nicer, family friendly beach can be found at Gorleston (about 15 minutes by car - approx. 6 miles from Corton). There are also good beaches at Lowestoft (approx. 3 miles from Corton) and Great Yarmouth (approx. 8 miles from Corton).


We would recommend the use of a car, although there is a regular bus service with drop offs and pick ups just outside the entrance to the Holiday Park.

The nearest Airport is Norwich (approx. 30 miles) and the nearest Train station is at Lowestoft (approx. 3 miles).


Waterside Holiday Park just 3 miles north of Lowestoft, 4 miles east of Oulton Broad and about 8 miles south of Great Yarmouth.

Further Details:

There is a local shop at the entrance to Waterside Holiday Park and a large Tesco store is just 5 minutes (1.6 miles) drive away.

Waterside Holiday Park has it's own Bar & Grill, there is also the White Horse P.H. (which serves food) and The New China (Chinese take-a-way) both located across the road from the Park.
