The Coastguard Lookout

The Coastguard Lookout is an iconic property located on the Hunstanton Clifftops ‘next-door’ to the Old Hunstanton Lighthouse.

The property features a top-floor lookout which provides an unrivalled panoramic view of the Wash and award-winning Old Hunstanton Beach. An absolutely wonderful place to enjoy a relaxing drink while you take in the breathtaking view; watch the sunset across the horizon, the local wildlife (Norfolk is known as one of the best bird-watching spots), or simply to delight in watching the ever-changing tide while being serenaded by the sound of the waves. The whole property is heated, so the lookout is a cosy hideaway at any time of the year.

Originally built as a Marconi Wireless Station back in 1906 this historic building played an important part in both World Wars, intercepting German radio transmissions and tracing the German fleet. During the Second World War the building was visited by His Majesty King George VI and Queen Elizabeth in 1943, along with Princesses Elizabeth (Queen Elizabeth II) and Margaret, who spent time with the Coastguard. This visit is displayed proudly by a commemorative plaque on the side of the building.

Sleeping up to 4 people, the accommodation consists of a double bed and bunk beds. All beds are located on the first floor and have amazing sea views. The top floor also accesses the outdoor terrace area – a secluded seating area perfect for soaking up the sun in privacy. How fabulous.
