The cottage is very comfortable and cosy, the garden is very large our dogs loved it. I do not have any daunt in my mind in recommending the cottage to friends and family.

Well equipped modern kitchen and overall comfortable accommodation, albeit dated in parts, which provides all that's required for a dog friendly holiday. Enclosed garden but might need to keep dog on long lead/under control, as fence not that high so some dogs could jump over top and smaller dogs (e.g. Jack Russell) might get through gaps in barredRead more gate.

If you want company forget it. We enjoyed it as well as the dogs, lovely garden and for dog walks around property. Would go again if in that part of country. Met Mrs. H. on arrival and never saw anyone afterwards, no problem. Would recommend it if a quiet, dog friendly time is what you want.

A very comfortable and pleasant bungalow with a large garden which suited our 2 dogs. It is well equipped. Close to major supermarkets.

Absolutely lovely bungalow. Very clean and tidy and equipped with all you need for your stay. The shower wasn't very powerful but that is the only negative comment. You are close to shops which you can reach by car and only 40 minutes from wells-next-the-sea. This is lovely for walking the dogs through the woods and on the beach. Would definitely rRead moreecommend staying and will be visiting again. Hide

The most northerly county in the East of England, Norfolk is a land of beautiful contrasts. From the swooning reed beds and endless maze of waterways in the Norfolk Broads; the unspoilt stretches of fens and shingle spits where bird and wildlife thrive; a famous royal palace and the historic cathedral city of Norwich, this enticing area of England is just waiting to be discovered. Visit Sandringham Palace and see where the Queen lives or find out where lavender grows; you could journey to one of the largest seal haul outs in Europe at Blakeney Point or have a traditional day at the seaside at Cromer and Great Yarmouth. The cathedral gilded city of Norwich is a wonderful place to lose yourself either walking the ramparts of Norwich Castle or the RAF Air Defence Radar Museum. The city has an exceptional array of shops, cafes and restaurants to enjoy. Well connected to the national rail and road network, Norfolk is easily accessible from London, the M25 and from major city terminals.

Norfolk is characterised by its horizons and big skies, straight highways and rural trappings. Also, when it comes to attractions, visitors to the county will be spoilt for choice. If you love animals and birds, head to RSPB Titchwell Marsh, or the Cley-Next-The-Sea. With such a long coastline Norfolk boasts some magnificent stretches of beach – favourites include Cromer, Old Hunstanton, Wells-Next-The Sea, the dunes of Winterton-on-Sea, and Brancaster (a favourite for dog owners).

There are so many places to visit and activities to get involved in on a Norfolk holiday. We have some lovely properties including country cottages, farm conversions, large family houses, apartments and surburban home from homes in our collection. Why not find your perfect holiday home today?
