Perfect for two, this romantic cottage offers a tranquil setting surrounded by countryside from which to explore the wider area.

A perfect starting point for leisurely walks in the quiet location of Banham, this romantic cottage retreat gives dog owners the option to spend peaceful days in the luscious garden surrounded by country scenes, or as a great base for rural jaunts in the local area. After a day of enjoying the beautiful scenery of Thetford Forest’s fantastic dog-walking opportunities, come back and enjoy the peaceful nature of village life under the night sky.

Norfolk is a county full of charm and character, and when you enter this lovely cottage you’ll feel right at home. The property is laid out across one level, giving you ease of access. The impressive open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner presents everything you need for your time here, with plenty of space for pups to stretch out on their new favourite napping spot. The romantic double bedroom and its sophisticated decor ensure a sound night’s sleep. The cottage is finished with a lovely bathroom area for freshening up after doggy escapades around Norfolk. Find the cottage’s outside area, where you can enjoy time in the enclosed garden with a large lawn and fruit trees for four-legged friends to sniff out new smells while you relax in the sun. For owners of particularly messy hounds, the outside tap is really useful for a quick wash down after an exciting day out!

The village of Banham itself offers some splendid strolling opportunities. With the church as your starting point, paths lead you around the dog-friendly 8-mile stretch of rural walks packed full of fantastic scenery. Be sure to pop into the local on the way back for a refreshing drink among the vibrant surroundings of village life, before making the 1-mile trip back home.

Very helpful owners. Garden is secure, with shared access driveway. Our dog isn't good with strangers and this could be an issue, owners did come to our rescue with a temporary fence (fantastic). Very clean. Countryside all around, so take care walking as the local people drive along with speed!!!

A lovely cosy cottage for a couple and a dog in an idealic location. Lots to do and see in nearby towns, with easy access to both Suffolk and Norfolk. We would stay again in the future if looking for somewhere to stay for a short break away and would recommend to family and friends.

The cottage was very well laid out, everything you needed was available. The garden area outside for you to use was lovely.

This cottage is perfect for two people and in a good location. Personally we do not like large roll top baths as we are not very tall and they are difficult to get in and out of. The owners were very helpful regarding our inability to work the TV and DVD. We stayed there three years ago and hopefully will be staying again next year.

We had a really enjoyable week in a pretty, beautifully decorated barn with a lovely large enclosure garden. The owners were very friendly and helpful and provided a very thoughtful welcome pack.

The cottage was lovely but in our opinion it needed some adjustments ( as stated above) to make it really comfortable. It was very homely and had everything you needed. Location slightly remote from most tourist destinations but that was our error.

A very nicely equipped cottage, tastefully converted from a barn. It is an ideal base for a very relaxing holiday for two and a dog. A couple of potential negatives to be aware of: 1.
