Bycroft Estate Agents

Celebrating 30 years in business since opening their first office in Great Yarmouth in 1992, Bycroft Estate Agents continue to go from strength to strength.


An established family run business, their focus over the years has been to provide a dedicated professional service and close customer support.

Their head office in Great Yarmouth operates within a core 10 mile radius, taking in popular coastal and Broads villages. From Blundeston, Hopton, and Lound to the south; Acle and Reedham to the west; Winterton, Martham and Horsey to the north; an enduringly popular area to live due to the stunning, Norfolk Broads and coastlines.

The Business was set up in 1992 by husband and wife team Charles and Julie Bycroft, who both already had long careers in estate agency; Charles being a second generation Chartered Surveyor.

The business is now owned and run by third-generation Chartered Surveyor Daniel Bycroft and his partner, Lucy Abbot. Since joining the business in 2006, Daniel has established a leading commercial property department focused on Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft dealing with a wide client base, including offshore businesses and great Yarmouth Borough councils Beacon Business Park. The Business now has nineteen dedicated and professional staff of whom Daniel Bycroft is very proud of.

Lucy has been instrumental in setting up a large portfolio of rental and commercial properties managed on behalf of landlords and providing a dedicated safe pair of hands.

30 year celebrations have started for this popular firm of estate agents and excitingly a new Norfolk Broads focused office will soon be open in Lower Street, Horning. This will add to the already successful sections of the business of Residential, Waterside, Lettings and Commercial.

Daniel Bycroft commented, “We simply love living in this part of the world, as I have done all my life and, with so many people, following lockdown, wanting to be here to enjoy all it has to offer. We want to expand our professional services and dedicate ourselves to the Norfolk Broads area.”

The new office based in Horning, will focus on The Broads areas including Wroxham, Ludham, Catfield, Stalham, and all villages in between. It wil offer the same complete property service for residential sales, lettings and commercial.

Daniel qualified as a chartered surveyor in 2000 specialising in commercial property. He then worked for the top three commercial and residential estate agents in Norwich for the next six years before returning to the family fold in 2006. Daniel said, “The best thing about working in Norwich was meeting my future partner Lucy while working at Bidwells!” 

Lucy herself is a property lettings expert, and then PA to an equity partner.  They now have a young family with James and Olivia , two dogs and chickens. They enjoy living in Ormesby St Margaret in the heart of the Broads. 

“Every day we walk our dogs on the beach and we spend so many summer days boating on the Broads or paddle boarding in the sea.” Lucy said.

“I particularly love the east coast, seeing the Sun rise in the mornings, up from the endless sea horizon, it gives you so much optimism for the day ahead.”

And the future certainly looks bright for Bycroft estate agents.
