Don’t be put off by the rather plain exterior of Crincle Cottage! This is an original estate cottage with the best access to the sea in Horsey, fabulous views, seclusion and a luxuriously finished interior!

The owners of Crincle Cottage have worked extra hard, intensively refurbishing it to turn it into a welcoming and comfortable holiday home. The brand new fitted kitchen and a woodburning stove add to its comfort and charm.

Its’ location in The Street, Horsey is ideal! It is just a 2 minute walk to the Nelsons Head, which is very dog friendly and has lots of super reviews for its food. It received the 2015 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence (and if you dont fancy going out to eat in the evening, they also do a takeaway. It’s a short walk from the cottage along a lovely country bridle path, right onto Horsey beach.   This is a much quieter part of the beach than Horsey Gap so there are often a lot more seals to see!  There is a public car park just down the road where people pay to leave their cars then walk up to this point to see the seals.  (Have a look at the website for some video footage we took recently).

Please remember to keep dogs on a lead at all times on this beach around the seals. (See and


We have had a marvellous and relaxing time, as have the two dogs. Seeing the seals and their pups has undoubtedly been the highlight of the weekend but the walk at Happisburgh was also wonderful. The dogs are completely worn out and the cottage is fantastic, so well equipped and wonderfully quiet. We also saw a tiny baby deer! Thank you for the welcome pack, there is no doubt we will return!

We had a wonderful time in Crincle Cottage. The seals were the highlight, but we all enjoyed walks around Horsey and also the beach at Sea Palling. The cottage was perfect for us. Comfortable beds – loads of hot water and even decent Wi-Fi and reception. Thank you very much Gail and team. We will return!

We have enjoyed a wonderful week. The weather has mainly been good and we have been cur for long walks everyday. We have loved seeing the seals – pups everyday – listening to the owls and the lovely secure garden, we have had a quiet relaxing week, just what we wanted!

Dog Friendly Holiday Cottage TestimonialJohn and Mel, Crincle Cottage

We’ve had a lovely relaxing stay. The cottage is lovely and in a lovely location! We’ve had some fab walks to the beach to see the seals – what a beautiful beach! The Nelson’s pub is very friendly and welcoming, with nice food. We visited Stalham which is a nice little town but the road diversions was a bit of a nightmare getting there and back, oh well! We ordered a takeaway curry from Oasis which was really really nice, thank you for a lovely stay and the welcome pack, was all beautiful!

Second stay for us, many trips to the sea and great to see all of the seals. Large tubing washed up onto the beach. Enjoyed canoeing, boating, paddle boarding, many walks and the pub! Lovely cottage, thank you ever so much!

We have had a wonderful week, which has gone far too quickly. Lots of walks to the seals and walks along Winterton-On-Sea beach. Really good fish and chips from Horsey Fish and Chip shop, we would definitely recommend . Thank you for the lovely cake and the treats for the girls which went down very well! Has been great listening to the owls in the evening, such a peaceful area. Thanks to Gail for our stay, and we look forward to either staying here again or another Pack Holidays property and we shall recommend to all our friends! Worst part for us was leaving.

Dog Friendly Holiday Cottage TestimonialJohn and Mel, Crincle Cottage

We’ve had a lovely, peaceful, relaxing holiday. The cottage is gorgeous, probably the nicest, most modern and clean that we have stayed in. the garden was lovely to sit out in the lovely weather that we were so lucky to have. It was amazing to watch the sunrise over th dunes and the dogs loved it, from chilling out in the garden to walks from the house and trips to Winterton, Cart Gap and Sea Palling beaches. They’ll be very tired dogs when we get home! Having the seals on the beach was just amazing, we’ve spent quite a lot of time up there just watching them, they’re fascinating. We loved the wildlife boat tour that we went on in Horsey and we can also recommend hiring a self-drive boat up at Wroxham Broad. Thank you so much for having us to stay, we’’ definitely recommend Pack Holidays and Crincle Cottage and we would also love to come back again sometime soon, also thank you for the vegan welcome pack!

a lovely place to stay! So peaceful and homely! We just wish it had been colder so that we could have used the lovely woodburner. Plenty of dogs walks – we visited the seals three times! Plenty of close beaches to explore too. Thank you for having us, we’d love to come back!

Dog Friendly Holiday Cottage TestimonialPatrick, Emily and Rory , Crincle Cottage

The cottage is lovely, with a great secure garden for teddy. We visited Winterton, Happisburgh, Sea Palling and the beach in Horsey to go and see the seals – what a fantastic sight! Had great meals at the Nelsons Head – so handy and great food! Pleasureboat Inn and a takeaway from Kingfishers – all very much recommended. Thank you for the card and bottle of wine for our 50th Anniversary and with all the other treats, Teddy really enjoyed his biscuits too! Hopefully we will come back soon!

Dog Friendly Holiday Cottage TestimonialAllen and Lyn, Crincle Cottage

Crincle Cottage feels like a home from home. Plenty of lovely walks from the door and of course to the beach. The seals were a shock as we didn’t expect to see them there this time of year! Another few weeks and we’ll be back here again, we can’t wait! This week has gone too fast! The treats were lovely too, thank you!


Dog Friendly Holiday Cottage TestimonialClissetts, Crincle Cottage

3rd time back for us this year, our granddaughter lives nearby so this lovely cottage is definitely home from home for us! The dogs loved the walks and the beaches. We both enjoyed the beer festival at the pub, great music and lovely food!
Thanks for the goodies Gail

Dog Friendly Holiday Cottage TestimonialPatrick, Emily, Rory and Loftus - September 2016, Crincle Cottage

We just wanted to share what a fab holiday it was for us. Perfect access to walks for the dogs. The local pub served good food and everyone always had a smile on their face.
We were lucky with the weather so most of our time at the cottage was spent in the large garden. The paved area with table and chairs was perfect for our meals.
We had visitors and used the cottage to full capacity for 2 nights and everyone said how lovely the cottage was with regards to size, decor, cleanliness and comfort.
We enjoyed visiting neighbouring beaches and the broads, all within a short drive from the cottage.
I would highly recommend The Ingham Swan for anyone who is after a celebratory drink or just wanting a special treat. The food is amazing!
The cottage and garden are very dog friendly and safe for large and small dogs. The location was perfect for walking and road access to whatever we fancied doing on the day.
Would we go back? Dogs and humans unanimously say Yes!
The only downside was that we weren’t staying longer and the welcome cake didn’t last long with it being so delicious !

What a lovely part of the world and what a lovely cottage!  The weather and tides have been just right for us.  We will be returning, not necessarily at the same time.

Our fourth part to this part of Norfolk, so far this year – we love it so much!  The cottage has been comfortable, warm and dog friendly with walks direct from the door.  Seeing the seals was wonderful and we have been blessed with some incredible sunrises and sunsets.  Loved the woodburner and really efficient heating system.  The pub is very friendly and great to be able to walk to .  Sat out in the Autumn sun a couple of times.  Lots of wonderful beaches around but our favourite is to park at Cart Gap and walk to Happisburgh at low tide.  Finally to Felbrigg and Blicking this time.  We will definitely consider a return visit to Crincle Cottage and have once again found Gail at Pack Holidays to be so helpful and so reliable.  Thank you for the lovely welcome basket of homemade goodies and dog biscuits which the boys loved once again.  We have had a fantastic stay and we will recommend Crincle Cottage to all our dog owning friends and clients.  Until the next time…….
