This superb cottage in Burnham Overy Staithe offers deluxe accommodation, an unbeatable water-side location and incredible coastline vistas from the first-floor lounge.
Sleeping six guests and one dog, the cottage is perfect for a group wanting to explore this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Norfolk Coast Path. A reverse-level property, the living space on the first floor makes the most of the picturesque views across the creek. With an open-plan design, your faithful canine companion can be curled up beside you the whole evening through, from sitting down to dinner to relaxing on the sofa.
Step into the entrance hall and unclip Lassie’s lead. The ground floor is home to the bright and pretty bedrooms, as well as a utility room which is ideal as storage for your outdoor gear, dog toys, and any clothes or towels that need a refresh in the washing machine. When you’re ready, climb the stairs to the open-plan lounge/kitchen/dinner. Its sloping ceiling beams, colourful soft furnishings, and wood burner inside a beautiful fireplace make this a social and comfortable room. All it needs is for you to put down a few of their favourite beds and comfiest cushions, and your top dog will be in puppy paradise. While they stretch out in front of the fire, make dinner and sit down at the table in front of the window for a home-cooked meal with a view. Watch TV or a film for your night’s entertainment or point out stars over the creek with a drink in hand.
A mere stroll down the road from the property is the local pub, with a dog-friendly bar where you can tuck into a hearty meal. Holkham Hall (4 miles) welcomes the waggy-tailed ones into the majority of the estate, including the walled garden and courtyard cafe. Sea-dogs should board a boat trip with their owners to Blakeney Point: well-behaved hounds will love the excitement and the fresh air, while humans will enjoy seal-watching.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
