Our Services

  • Dog Friendly Holiday Cottage

We established our business because…

We moved to Norfolk in 2013 to start a new adventure by the sea. We worked hard together to convert the annexe into a separate two bedroom holiday cottage. Weasel our labradoodle, came in to our lives while we were setting up the cottage. So then we designed our cottage to be dog friendly inside and out!

Why dogs love what we offer…

Dogs love staying here at Church View Cottage because they are treated as one of the family. On arrival they are welcome straight away in to the large, privately enclosed garden. We provide welcome goodies for the dogs, all homemade by myself. We have a large chest containing dog throws and towels all available to use during your stay. Dogs are welcome on the sofa too for snuggles.

The advice we give dog owners is…

We are just a couple of miles from such wonderful dog friendly beaches. With no dog restrictions all year round. Near to broadland villages and National Trust properties. There are so many dog friendly places to eat and drink. A very special place to holiday.

“An amazingly relaxing gem!”
by on 3rd August 2019
We have just returned after a week at Church view. From the moment we stepped out of the car we were given the warmest of receptions from Peter who showed us round before leaving us to settling in as Paula was away but on her return she too popped in which was lovely. We were treated to delicious cupcakes and essentials such as bread and homemade jam which were much appreciated and enjoyed by us all. Even the dogs were treated with yummy homemade dog biscuits.

Our 2 boys(12 & 9) were so excited at their room and the garden (we took cheap badminton sets which they enjoyed). We even took to playing cards in the evenings with no tv on which is almost unheard of for our technology obsessed children.

The cottage is a home from home with everything you need for a break, so much so we choose to stay in and cook most nights. The weather was so good we took up the chance to bbq with the one from the shed.

Our 2 dogs took a liking to the cottage and garden and enjoyed a visit from Weasel. All the sea air wore them out and the cottage was their haven for the week.

The location is fabulous as it is so quiet and no light pollution ... so definitely some star gazing to be done on clear nights. Although quiet you are minutes away from Cart Gap (Smallsticks cafe definitely worth a visit) and Happisburgh lighthouse. For essentials there is a Tesco about 5 mins away too. Sea Palling, Winter and Walcott are all within easy reach too.

All 6 of us enjoyed it so much we booked for next year before we left .... what more can we say other than my youngest woke on the last morning and stated ‘I’m sad to go, I’m going to miss this place!’
“Fourth holiday stay and still counting”
by on 27th July 2019
We have just returned from our 4th and very relaxing holiday at Church View. The weather was scorching in the 30's all week and with a dog we were not able to go out and about in the hot sun. It was lovely to sit back and relax in the comfort and coolness that Church View provides. The garden is lovely and secure for the dog so to sit in the shade with a Prosecco or two went down a treat. It is so calm and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of our home city and a little oasis within our favourite part of England. The owners are delightful, so friendly and helpful you couldn't want for more. We will soon be sitting down to plan our next stay at Church View and never tire of returning to this very special gem of a place.
“February Holiday”
by on 18th July 2019
Another brilliant holiday at Church View Cottage, it really is a true home from home, with everything that you need. As always there was a very friendly welcome from Paula, Pete and Weasel and a lovely welcome basket - Poppy especially enjoyed the homemade dog biscuits!
The local beaches are always lovely but this year the weather was superb, it could almost have been summer. A great place to stretch your legs and then back to read a book with a slice of Paula's homemade cake, in front of the log burner = perfection for humans and dogs alike.
