A charming terraced cottage offering attractive accommodation for up to four guests, offering a wealth of period features, situated in the quiet Norfolk village of North Creake.

Two dogs are warmly welcomed in this charming couples’ retreat, providing attractive accommodation with period features in the peaceful Norfolk village of North Creake. Switch off, ditch the chores, and enjoy a taste of authentic country cottage life here with your canine companions.

Walled in Norfolk flint and traditionally made of rounded cobbled stones taken from local beaches, this cottage is an indelible part of Norfolk’s history. Inside is an attractive lounge/diner with wooden beams, feature brick fireplace, and a cosy wood burner to cuddle up warm with your doggy pals. Traditional Norfolk pavement tiles are amazing floors to deal with muddy paws. Steep, cottage-style stairs lead to the double and single bedrooms upstairs. Outside, there is a shared path and an enclosed pretty garden with a secluded seating area so you can keep your pets safe and sound at your side. At the end of the garden, past the gate is the narrow River Burn upon which the village is based.

This cottage is just around the corner from the dog-friendly village pub. Much of the village forms part of the estate of Earl Spencer, with an impressively large church. Creake Abbey Is under 2 miles away and now houses speciality shops and a farmers’ market. The larger village of Burnham Market (3 miles) is often said to be Norfolk’s prettiest village and is a wonderful place to spend a relaxing afternoon browsing the independent shops and enjoying lunch in the delightful dog-friendly pub with its sunny beer garden. Check out the magnificent coastal estate of Holkham Hall (5 miles) whose handsome18th-century stately home has been used in many films. Set within an impressive 25,000 acres of rolling parkland, dogs are warmly welcomed on leads. Here, you can also visit the glorious sweeping beach featured in the film ‘Shakespeare in Love’.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

This cottage has really fallen behind and is in need of some serious DIY and upgrading,especially the windows for soundproofing from the heavy traffic noise and the bathroom is barely fit for purpose now.Its a shame as with a bit of updating it could easily match the rest of the market in the area.On a positive note the welcome pack was excellent.

The cottage is small but functional. Unfortunately the garden is not secure for small dogs and the road directly outside the property is busy at times. The property is well positioned for exploring the area.

This is a delightful small dog-friendly cottage, just right for 2 people, in a great rural location within easy distance of the beautiful North Norfolk coast. Comfortable beds and furniture, well appointed kitchen, and lovely back garden for sitting out in. Some traffic noise at the front. Off-road parking at the back.

The cottage was in an ideal location but only if you have your own transport with its own alloted parking area. The cottage was a typical small workers cottage which had all that was needed for a short break.

A lovely little cottage, full of character, very comfortable and welcoming. Please do note that this is definitely a two person house (plus a child's bed in second bedroom) - the photos on the website are great but give the impression of more scale!
