The place

Sitting in a row of houses on the Norfolk Coast, 4 Coastguard cottage is a stone’s throw from the beach – every dog’s dream. Unassuming on the outside, you’ll discover beautifully decorated and snug interiors on the inside. It's off grid here, so you might not have wifi, but chances are you won’t miss it. With some phone signal available, you can always check your messages, but chances are you’ll be focusing too much on the peacefulness of a digital detox, exploring market towns, taking long walks on the beach, or a well-deserved soak in the bathtub. The lounge is the perfect spot to stretch out with a book and relax, especially as night draws in, the sun sets over the sea and you settle in by the fire.

You should know

  • The communal back garden is used by neighbour’s dogs so please use the enclosed front garden only
  • The cottage's electricity is from solar panels and wind turbine, enough to power the fridge, lights and your devices (but not things like hairdryers)
  • As there's no central heating, you'll be provided with wood for the wood burners and electric blankets but you may also want to bring cosy layers and slippers during the winters months
  • Cooking essentials like salt, pepper and oil aren't provided so if you're planning on cooking, remember to bring some along
  • There's no wifi or TV so it's a good excuse to completely switch off (although there is some phone signal here if needed!)

In the neighbourhood

  • You’re right inside The Norfolk Coast AONB here, so you're spoilt for choice with coastal walks. You’ll find the Scolt Head Island National Nature Reserve to your west, which can be accessed by walking when there’s low tide – or take a ferry to the island from the quay at Burnham Overy Staithe
  • Beaches are in abundance here (believe it or not), so try Wells-next-the-Sea, for a wide-open expanse of golden sand and colourful little beach huts, or Holkham Beach for another gorgeous expanse, this time backed with dunes. Be sure to check seasonal dog restrictions, and a certain times of year, keep an eye out for fenced-off areas protecting wildlife
  • Spend an afternoon in Holt perusing the town, shopping, checking out art galleries or bespoke clothing brands. There are plenty of places to grab some food, and of course, fish and chips are on offer – but there are also several tearooms, pubs and coffee shops. If you’re looking for something special to bring back to the cottage, pop into Cross Street Union for a coffee, and pick up some natural wine for the evening
  • With 100 acres of mixed woodland open all year, Holt Country Park is a gorgeous place for a walk – where you’ll share the canopy with many varieties of butterflies. There are plenty of different waymarked trails to discover, as well as sculptures and carvings along the way
  • If you’re missing the metropolitan life, then Norwich is just an hour’s drive away. There are cobbled streets, markets, shopping at bespoke and high street brands, and best of all, plenty of places to eat and grab coffee. It’s well worth popping into the city to see what’s on offer
  • There are quite a few different pubs nearby to grab a bite to eat. The Wiveton Bell near Weybourne is a great choice and even has a special dog menu! The Crown Pub in Sheringham is also a good spot to visit as they love a visiting dog – treating them, in their own words, as a ‘VIP’.
