Reactive Dog Guide
Oak Cottage is a 3 star Reactive Friendly Pack Holidays cottage. Here are the reasons why, but also more importantly, what aspects of the cottage may not be suitable for your reactive. Oak Cottage is situated in a very quiet area, on the outskirts of Happisburgh village., The owners have 3 reactive dogs so are very well aware of pressure points.Fences and hedging are all secure and all more than 6 feet high and the garden is not overlooked due to the height. The garden is accessed directly from the dining area doors (two exits) and dogs can be seen /supervised directly from this room, the living room and two upstairs bedrooms. There are a number of quiet walks nearby and clearly signposted bridle path routes, some of which avoid the village and route throughout the countryside.Whilst there is farmland nearby we have had no evidence of bird scarers in the past few years. There is no well-travelled/coastal route going past the house and it is very peaceful.
