Beach Cottage is a perfect holiday cottage for dogs. Situated so close to the beach, there are endless opportunities for walking and playing in the waves; many guests tell us that at the end of their holiday their dog doesn’t want to leave. I know that it’s a big reason people come back!
Check out our reviews here.
The Cottage: Our wooden floors and floor tiles mean that you can relax, whilst your dog makes him/herself at home in the Cottage. The garden offers a good space for their morning/evening sniffs and the Lookout is a perfect place for them to crash out in front of the woodburner. Please big your own dog bed, bowls and towel.
There’s space in the kitchen for your dog’s bed; and to prevent them from going on the furniture at night, you can keep them in the kitchen by closing the door. We ask that you do not allow your dog upstairs, as this would necessitate a deep clean to ensure our guests who have dog allergies are not affected. The stairgate at top of the stairs is a useful way to keep your them downstairs. If it is essential to sleep beside your dog, please use ‘Beach Hut’, our Annex building, which is tiled (and has underfloor heating).
As we ask you to ensure you don’t leave your dog unattended, Beach Cottage can recommend Sharon and Darren of Handy Home Services, who can provide you with a Dog Sitting/Walking Service if you need to be dog-free at any point during your holiday. Their number is 07792 218961 or 07970 111185.
The Village: Mundesley Village is very dog friendly and you will often find water bowls next to shops and cafes. Most places allow dogs, if they are on a lead and not barking. See Places to Eat for pubs and cafes that welcome dogs.
There is a VET’s practice in North Walsham (20 mins away) and details can be found in the House file in the Cottage.
The Beach: Between May and September, dogs are not allowed on the beach directly in front of the Cottage, but you can use the promenade (keep them on a short lead) to walk just 3 minutes, in either direction, and you’ve got miles of golden sand to let them run free like the wind.
Dog waste bins can be found on the main path down to the beach; left, at the end of the promenade; and right, just beside the Lifeboat station.
In the winter months – October to April – dogs are allowed anywhere. Check North Norfolk District Council’s dog leaflet for a map; and for information about other beaches closeby.
On leaving Beach Cottage: We allow dogs to stay at no cost to the owner because we have agreed with you that you will clean up after your pet, to the extent that the housekeeper arrives never knowing that a dog had been there.
