(24 customer reviews)

This gorgeous single storey, beautifully converted barn is situated in a quiet country lane, perfect for country lane walks, and is just a 15 minute walk to lovely Walcott beach. Greenwood Barn is an exciting new addition to the Pack Holiday family. It is a beautifully designed barn, decorated and furnished to a high specification which is all on one level, perfect for those who don’t want stairs (for hoomans and dogs!). This dog friendly cottage in Ridlington is ideally situated in a quiet country lane, perfect for quiet dog walks. It is also a 15 minute walk to Walcott beach. Walcott has two dog friendly pubs (The Lighthouse Inn and The Poachers Pocket) and Kingfishers Cafe plus the lovely Watsons cafe around the corner in Bacton. Park your car in the gravel driveway (plenty of room for 4 cars) and close the paddock gate. The paddock gate is also meshed so once closed is secure for most dogs.  You can park your car and unload directly onto the patio area or onto the lawn.  Your dogs can access the lawn directly from the house without the need to cross gravel (for those dogs with sensitive paws)

Cottage Details

When you arrive

Entrance

From the car parking area, walk around to the front of the barn and into the light and airy hallway (which spans most of the barn length.)    The large windows ensure there is plenty of light.   The whole barn benefits from under floor heating and hard flooring throughout (perfect for snoozing pooches).  The hallway has beautiful reclaimed tiles and exposed beams.. Turn left into the

Lounge  /  Dining Room

I love this room with the huge amount of space, high ceilings and fabulous wooden reclaimed beams.  There are two very large and comfortable sofas and whilst they are perfectly positioned for watching the 43 inch Smart TV (please bring your own Firestick / login details to your subscription of choice).  They are also perfectly positioned for gazing out onto the lovely secure south-facing garden.  Nothing nicer than watching the world go by!   There is a cosy woodburner (and feature exposed chimney) and plenty of space to spread out.  There are wooden floors throughout this room. To the rear of this room, there is a lovely dining table and chairs for formal dining (seating 6) Go through the dining room door to the:

Bedroom 2

Which has twin beds with a new Simba hybrid soft mattress, 2 side units with bedside lamps and wood flooring.   There is a large chest of drawers and a seat. Enter into the

Garden

The outside space is a fully enclosed large grassed garden with garden furniture (picnic table and bench and a 3 seater rocking bench) and gas barbeque. The garden is fully enclosed with a 6 feet solid fence on the front and right hand side.   On the left, it is hedged and meshed with stock fencing (and will help prevent escapes from smallest of dogs).  There is a fabulously handy dog shower in the garden too.  There is a whirlygig for drying washing

  1. Trevor Debbie, Josh, Kaitlin Wendy and Teddy

    Another very relaxing Pack Holiday in a lovely peaceful location with lots of countryside walks. Lovely to have the beach close by for family evening walks
    Bacton circular walk was an eventful 5 miles. Sunshine and heavy downpours. Although a very mixed bag of weather, this has not stopped us and Smallsticks Cafe at Cart Gap was enjoyable. Sheringham Park – beautiful
    Unfortunately, we had to visit Toll Barn veterinary centre but from reception to treatment their services were fantastic
    Our Teddy loved the garden and we found Greenwood Barn a relaxing place to stay. Our fourth Pack Holiday, I wonder where to next?….

  2. ANONYMOUS

    Had the most WONDERFUL stay at Greenwood Barn. Perfect location for R&R. The weather was very kind. Our two Labradors loved the garden to laze in after a long walk in Bacton Woods every day. Just beautiful. Only sorry that it is very popular and fully booked up.

  3. Bev and Mike and Sid, Stan and Basil

    Greenwood Barn, once more, a big thank you for having us. Enjoyed our dogs on the beach and our trips out to Sheringham Park and many other places of interest. Great fish and chips etc and Chinese food all local
    Looking forward to future holidays here, thank you

    On arrival we found the place amazingly well stocked with everything you could need.
    Beds were comfortable and loved that each room was ensuite. The beach is only 10 mins walk away which was brilliant, with the Poachers Pocket to quench your thirst.
    Will definitely look at booking here again. We have had a great time here
    The dogs have loved the garden and the multitude of different animal noises from next door
    This place is by far the best Pack Holiday location we have stayed so far

  6. Lisa and Lee

    How lovely! Very spacious, clean, lovely location and you provide everything! We had a lovely family meal at The Poachers Pocket in Walcott, so friendly and the food is fabulous. Won’t hesitate to book again! Thank you so much!

  7. Claire smith

    We had a fabulous time with our dogs at Greenwood Barn, June 2023. Fabulous location, and the barn was really clean with a great layout….all conducive to happy humans and happy dogs!
    We loved hearing the pigs snaffling about, and only ever heard the cockerel during the day…never at silly o’clock in the morning!
    We know the area quite well, but this was one of our favourite stays….our first time with Pack Holidays, who we would definitely book through again. Communication with Gail was excellent, and wouldn’t have doubted for a minute that she would have swiftly dealt with any issues….but there weren’t any!
    Loved Bacton Woods and so many beaches to pootle about on…..love how quiet they are, not too many humans. Perfect.
    Thanks again….loved the barn, and loved dealing with Pack Holidays.

  8. Colin, Tracy, Danielle and doggies Bentley, Zena and Lincoln

    What a beautiful, spotlessly clean gem of a home. We can honestly say we have never been more reluctant to end a holiday and to happily stay for longer.
    Everything is well thought of, layout of the barn is perfect. The location for walks along the beaches, through the woods and to sightsee is perfect.
    Thank you for sharing your beautiful home

  9. Claire, Rich, Gertie, Eve and Obe xx

    Thank you for the incredibly thoughtful welcome basket. What an idyllic and perfect week. Thank you Hayley for allowing us to stay in the wonderful Greenwood Barn and to Gail for organising everything from the minute we booked!! It is so amazingly peaceful and we loved hearing / seeing the neighbouring pigs / horses / donkeys / rooster. Weather couldnt have been more perfect and viewing the stars from the garden was truly breathtaking! Bacton Woods was a stunning walk to take our 3 furry kids on, as well as Bacton Beach. Both being so close was even more reason to love Greenwood Barn!!! For anyone reading this, the 30 minute drive to Horsey Beach to see the seals was the incredible highlight of our week – a must-see if you are able to. Thank you for a perfect vacation!!

  10. Matt, Michaela, Maxi and Ozzy

    We booked a last minute week away to escape house renovations and now we dont want to go back home! Beautiful property in a lovely location with plenty of space for our two collies to relax Hope to come back again soon!

  11. Clare and Ian, Andrew and Maureen

    We had a lovely stay! Thank you so much. Perfect Greenwood Barn! We would love to return

  12. Rick + Chris

    Back at my “special place”, love this place + so do the 8 “kids” . Everything we needed was there, vehicle broke down + in the garage for 2 days but what a place to be stranded! lovely walks to the beach. So not looking forward to leaving tomorrow but back soon!

    Thank you Pack Holidays (Gail)!

  13. Carmel Phil and Peggy

    Glorious, spotless, well-equipped holiday cottage, and a wonderful week spent in this beautiful barn. Peggy loved the garden, with room to chase about and occasionally growl at the piggies! Lots of lovely long walks on endless beaches and there were so many to choose from. Spent a day in Norwich which was lovely, visited Wells-Next-The-Sea and Cromer. Stunning beaches at Happisburgh and Bacton. The barn is a gem of a place, lovely peaceful spot. Has everything you need for a lovely relaxing holiday. Don’t want to leave. Thank you

  14. The Downs and Cluedo

    We have had a fabulous week here at Greenwood Barn. The weather has been excellent so visited the beach every day. Walcott and Happisburgh for one day. Sand lovely, beaches clean, sea warm once in. Eaten out at The Ship Inn, The Swan Inn, The Lighthouse Inn, Vernon Arms – All recommended, friendly staff, all dog friendly and excellent food. Chinese takeaway from the Oriental Gardens in Bacton. Lovely food.

    Would definitely recommend Pack Holidays and Greenwood Barn to dog owner friends. Everything for the dog catered for, towels etc and used the dog shower outside every day after visiting the beach. Cluedo needed a vet visit due to grass seeds in his ear. Took him to Westover Vets at North Walsham, dealt with quickly and no problems. Sainsbury and Tesco nearby for food shopping and fuel.

    Welcome pack was lovely especially first cuppa after a long drive, Cluedo loved the dog biscuits. The garden is a lovely sun trap, we closed the curtains while out during the day. Loved watching the bats at night and will miss the cockerel alarm clock in the morning. Excellent choice of games in the cabinet, played a few in the evenings.

  15. Helen and Paul and Sammy

    A lovely, relaxing and secluded cottage. The magnificent beach walks were soothing in the circumstances of the Queens death and personal bereavement. The welcome pack was great, Sammy loved the dog biscuits. Thank you.

  16. The Mills

    Perfect accommodation for dogs and anyone with mobility problems. Safe garden and plenty of space in the kitchen and lounge. 15 mins to walk to Walcott Gap, lovely sandy beach which the dogs loved. 15 mins drive to Bacton Woods and Pigney Woods, both excellent for dogs with plenty of shade.

    Waxham and Waxham Barns Cafe, a great little find for coffee and a light lunch. Kingfisher Fish and Chips always good. Sheringham 40 mins away, great walks, £6.50 to park the car all day and take a picnic. Did not both with Holkham or Sandringham this year due to the heat.

    Waitrose is good at North Walsham and Tesco in Stalham, our only issue was flies due to the heat and a parasol would have been useful as the patio is a sun trap.

    One of the best equipped places we have stayed in Norfolk and would come back. Great place

  17. The Kents

    We have had a lovely holiday here at Greenwood Barn. Fabulous accommodation. Clean, comfortable and very dog friendly. Our dogs loved the garden and being able to move freely inside and out – they settled in almost immediately! Although the weather has been rather windy, the garden provided a sheltered sun trap most days. We visited Mundesley (great beach for children) Bacton Woods, (Well worth a walk). Fish and Chips great from The Kingfisher fish bar! Look out for the wonderful display from the bats at dusk!!

  18. Lesley, MIchael, Lauren, FInlay, Beau, and baby Brandon

    A lovely week in this beautiful Cottage with its fab garden. We have loved the peace and quiet at this cottage. The location is perfect. We have visited this area of Norfolk a few times and always have an enjoyable break here.

    We didn’t visit a lot of places this time, The dogs love the beach so we have mostly been to Cart Gap and Happisburgh, the Small Sticks Cafe is fab at Cart Gap, sandwiches, salad and cakes are amazing, We also visited Bacton woods, lovely walks there kept the dogs on leads there as muddy in some areas. We would love to come back here, hopefully very soon x

  19. Martin, Jo, Pete, Jan & 2 dogs

    A fabulous stay in a really great cottage. Everything we needed. Best of all, perfectly safe for the dogs,

    Bacton beach great for dogs, hardly any people, can do a long walk. Went to Wells, really lovely, dogs allowed part of the beach and in the pine woods,

    Saw lots of seals at Horsey, walked from Horsey windpump to the bech and saw hundreds of them. Visited Blicking Hall, lovely parkland but no dogs in garden area.

    Best eating places, Watson’s Cafe at Bacton, great cakes and coffee, Wells Deli, good toasties. Best of all Lighthouse Inn, great food, very welcoming to all 5⭐ all round All of these are dog friendly.

  20. Anonymous

    We’ve had a fantastic week, helped by glorious weather. Watched some stunning sunsets from the wonderful garden. The house is beautiful, no one wanted to leave.

    Thank you ❤️

  22. Anonymous

    Lovely place to stay and perfect for our blind dog Layla, we could leave her to explore the house and gardens without having to worry about her. Out for lunch everyday. Our favourites for food were Watson’s and the Star Inn at Lessingham. Of course we all had great fun on the brilliant beaches and loved exploring Bacton Woods too. Even the weather was perfect and the sun shone to make it perfect week. Would definitely return, even in the rain.
