The Coach House is a stunning and imaginative conversion of a former coach house (completed in 2013) and is one of three holiday cottages within Marshgate House (the others are The Dairy and Stables Cottage). It is situated in a very quiet location, just 10 minutes walk from the centre of the bustling market town of North Walsham where many dog friendly cafe and pubs can be found. There is a lovely countryside dog walk accessed from right outside the door. Witton Woods is accessible from the Coach House on foot and our wonderful beaches are just a 10 minute drive. The quieter beaches are very dog friendly. The Norfolk Broads are a short 10 minute drive away and there are a number of boat hire companies who welcome dogs on boats.

We firmly believe that you know your dogs best. If you wish to go out for a meal for an hour we are more than happy for you to leave your dog in the cottage, as long as you are sure they will not be distressed, and won’t bark continuously as we do have two other cottages with guests in the vicinity.

If you would like a delivery of dog food to the house while you are here, rather than bringing it with you, this local company will deliver for free – Mike’s Animal Feeds

From the A1151 from Norwich,  turn left onto the A149 signposted to Cromer and North Walsham.  Follow this road for 5 miles until you arrive at North Walsham.  At the first set of traffic lights, turn right to go into North Walsham town.  At the roundabout, take the second exit, (with Paston College on your left).  At the next roundabout take the first exit (Roys on your left and Lidls on your right).  Follow the road  past the Post Office and Library (New Road) and at the next bend in the road, take the left turn into Pound Road.  Follow this road going straight on at the crossroads (Manor Road school on your right hand side).  After the crossroads, the road turns into Marshgate.  Go over several speed bumps and after the road bends to the right, there is a right hand turn with a white cottage at teh corner.  Take this right hand turn (which is still Marshgate).  The Dairy is accessed through the very large black gates on the right hand side of the road attached to the black fronted Norfolk brick building.



What a lovely accommodation, we all had a wonderful time. The beaches are so accessible from this cottage and they’re stunning at this time of year! Even though the weather wasn’t amazing we still had a wonderful time and will definitely be booking for next year!!

Thanks for a wonderful welcome, and a super stay at the lovely Coach House. Was a shame that the weather was against us but we didn’t stop what we wanted to do! Thank you so much sending some big hugs from us and the pooches!

Dog Friendly Holiday Cottage TestimonialT and C Marshall, The Coach House, Marshgate House, North Walsham, Norfolk
We have just returned from a peaceful week at the Coach House, Marshgate in North Walsham. We loved our stay – 2 adults and our 4 dogs (yes 4 – we were delighted to find a property willing to take this number of dogs). The cottage was a really lovely tasteful conversion, clean and had everything we needed. The dogs loved both the homemade dog biscuits they received on arrival and having their own secure garden.
Simon the owner was friendly and very helpful but did not pester us at all.
Sheringham Woods and Blicking Hall both excellent for dog walking with a buggy (one of our pack has bad legs so travels in style with his own ‘wheels’).
Thank you Gail, Pack Holidays and Simon, highly recommended.

Lovely short break, very comfortable accommodation and helpful Simon on the doorstep.  Cart Gap beach was a favourite as was Truly Local shop in Stalham.  Did not eat out having 3 dogs with us but the kitchen was amply equipped for cooking up goodness!
