'The Bath House' is an important and iconic landmark building situated on the sea front in the centre of Cromer commanding breath taking views over the superb Victorian Pier and out to sea. In recent years the building was the subject of an extensive restoration project, undertaken by the present owners, to provide arguably the one of the most unique and outstanding coastal homes in North Norfolk.

This fine period residence has a fascinating history, originally built in 1814 as a subscription reading room and in the years to follow it took on many purposes. In 1872 the famous brewer and wine merchant, James Chapman, converted the building into a hotel and added the western wing for use as a billiard room. The property remained a hotel until it was acquired by the current owners in 1999 who embarked on a thorough programme of restoration and refurbishment.

Today 'The Bath House' boasts lavish accommodation extending to over 5000 sq. ft. predominantly across two floors and is finished to a style and specification that is rarely seen in Norfolk. The ground floor offers wonderful entertaining space with both the formal sitting room and dining hall boastings direct access onto private terraces that look over the promenade and beach beyond. Further receptions include a library and study. The kitchen, supplied and fitted by 'Gaggenau' is a contemporary masterpiece yet feels at home with the period detail and charm of the building.

The first floor offers no less than four opulent and highly individual bedroom suites all boasting lavish en suite facilities and stunning costal views. The master suite spans across three inter-connecting areas that include the bedroom, an elevated sitting room and a beautiful en suite and dressing room. The remaining three suites all offer something special and each one is very different with individual en suite bathrooms. The indulgent interior and facilities continue in this amazing home with its very own 'Spa' that includes a sauna, steam room and a secret roof terrace. Further first floor accommodation includes a fully fitted 'cinema room' with a kitchen/bar room for unique entertaining options.

The main garden area sits in an elevated position commanding superb views over the historic pier, the beach and coastline beyond. Additional private terraces provide outside dining options and parking is via permit holder bays. 

CROMER Cromer is a picturesque coastal town with a good selection of shops and restaurants. Dominating the views are the medieval church, which has the highest tower in Norfolk and there is a spectacular Victorian pier, at the end of which is a restaurant and a 500 seat pavilion theatre. The theatre hosts a wide variety of shows, from March to the end of December and is also home to a modern Lifeboat, which is launched from the end of the pier slipway. Cromer is renowned for its award winning sandy beaches and its famous Cromer Crabs. Other attractions include a cinema, Amazonia Zoo and the Cromer Museum and Lifeboat Museum. The town has its own railway station with a good service to Norwich and other prime amenities including a hospital, doctors surgery, dental surgery, library and the Royal Cromer Golf Club (18 hole).
