Rectory Cottage

Sleeps 6

Rectory Cottage is a rather unique and very impressive cottage with a relaxing location in the pretty hamlet of Wilby. If you are looking for a property with lots of character, then this one is hard to beat! The beautiful exposed beams, dramatic stone spiral staircase with original carved oak boss, and open gallery above the sitting room all add to the charm.

The cottage sleeps 6 and is a good option for families as it also has plenty of outside space where children can run around. Guests even have seasonal use of the owners' swimming pool. There is one double bedroom and two twin, a spacious living room with fitted kitchen/dining area and a woodburning stove.

The towns of Norwich and Bury St Edmunds are within easy reach and the local village has a shop and pub serving excellent food. Two well behaved dogs are welcome. Please note that due to the steep spiral staircase, the cottage is not recommended for those with very young children.

Pet Friendly Days Out in Norfolk
Norfolk Sheringham Park
This beautiful National Trust site has over 80 different species of rhododendrons on display and is a "must visit" place for keen gardeners. The grounds are stunning all year round but are at their best in May and June when the flowers are in full bloom. As you wander around the impressive site you can enjoy coastal views, wild garden areas and a lovely gazebo. There is also an exhibition barn and wildlife trails are on offer for children during school holidays. Dogs can be let off leads but must be kept under close control. Most dog owners agree that there are few things more enjoyable for their pets than a brisk walk along a sandy beach and a splash or swim in the sea. So if you are taking you dog on holiday, it makes sense to pick a location with a good pet friendly beach.
Brancaster Beach
Perfect for pets as it has dedicated areas for those with dogs. Dogs must be kept under close control but do not have to be on leads. The long stretch of sandy beach is close to several other attractions including Brancaster Millennium Activity Centre where you can also enjoy organised cycle rides, crafting sessions for children and activity days.
Felbrigg Hall
A very impressive estate, home to a grand house, stunning gardens, a huge lake and miles of walking trails. A cycle path also runs through the site. You can take a tour of the house itself and see the kitchen, the perfectly laid out dining room and the magnificent library, or simply choose to spend the day enjoying the grounds. Visitors are welcome to bring a picnic and this is an excellent idea if you have a dog. Other dining options include the brassiere which serves fresh local produce or the traditional tea room. There is also a gift shop. Dogs can be let off leads in the woodland but must be kept under close control. Dogs must be on leads while in the parkland.
Horsey Windpump National Trust site
Located in the Great Yarmouth area of Norfolk, this is a popular attraction and ideal if you are looking to enjoy a day out with your dog. The windpump was built in 1948 and affords very beautiful views over Horsey Mere. The Horsey Estate even without the pump is impressive and well worth a visit. You can walk from the Broads to the beach with your dog and enjoy stunning scenery along the way. Boat trips (not National Trust) across Horsey Mere are also available during holiday periods. Dogs welcome, on leads in some areas.
