Neaps is a gorgeous dog friendly cottage in Hickling, full of character and charm. I am so delighted it is joining the Pack Holidays family again, as I am always being asked about it by our regular guests who have had so many fabulous dog friendly holidays here.
Neaps is situated along a quiet path, at the edge of a charming village by the Norfolk Broads, with a very dog friendly pub and lots of walks from the door, including direct access to Weavers Way. Sea Palling, with its Blue Flag beach, is just a short 10 minutes by car and Horsey beach, famous for its seals, is a short 15 minute drive away!
This dog friendly cottage by the Norfolk Broads mainly has hard floors and a very well dog-proofed large garden for safe play.
If you would like to see what’s on locally in the village, click here to go to the Hickling village website.
If you fancy a bit of town shopping, the seaside towns of Cromer and Sheringham are a short drive away and, more locally, the lovely little seaside villages we have nearby are Happisburgh, Sea Palling, Horsey and East Ruston, famous for its Vicarage Gardens. Or head up to Mundesley and catch a bit of crazy golf!
There is a lot to do from this marvellous base in Hickling, especially if you’re looking for a Norfolk Broads holiday with dogs.

Reactive Dog Guide
Neaps is a 3 star Reactive Friendly Pack Holidays cottage, ideal if you’re searching for Norfolk Broads pet friendly holidays. Here are the reasons why, but also more importantly, what aspects of the cottage may not be suitable for your reactive dog. Neaps is situated in a very quiet part of Hickling (a rural Broadlands village). There are neighbours on either side (owner one side) but there is nothing a reactive dog can see due to the height of the hedges and we know how quiet it is there, as do our past guests! There are some nice quiet walks nearby including Weavers Way (a 5 min walk from the cottage) and some nice bridle paths out of the village. There is no farmland surrounding Neaps and we have had no reports of bird scarers. Whilst passers-by may walk past on the road, this is some distance away and the road cannot be viewed from the garden (as Neaps is accessed via a private side road) and we are quite confident there is very little for scared or reactive dogs to react to. There is no coastal path or path walk passing the property. The garden does not look into another property and is not overlooked.
