3 Star Reactive Dog Friendly

3 Star Reactive Dog Rated

Poppylands is in a very quiet location, with little to no passing traffic as it is at the end of a dead end road. There are neighbours on either side but please note that there may also be dogs on either side and I cannot guarantee reactivity of dogs in either property. The garden fencing has recently been upgraded to increase the height. The fencing facing the dunes has been increased to 5.5 feet high, whilst not detracting from the view, it does ensure a high degree of safety. The fencing and hedging on either side of the cottage is secure and the front garden gates (8 feet high), once closed after parking your car in the driveway, are totally secure. Please note that Poppyland situation is a very quiet area with neighbours on both sides. We would respectfully remind guests to be mindful of excessive dog noises in the garden and round the house.

Poppyland is situated in a quiet and peaceful spot on a private estate, well outside of the hub of Winterton village, it is the perfect place to get away from it all.  It is clean, bright and recently modernised with a beach theme throughout.

Detached and all on one level, it has stunning, uninterrupted views of the dunes and the sea.  The sea is about 250 metres away with private access to the dunes and beach directly from the fully enclosed garden.

Winterton on Sea is famous for its miles and miles (and miles) of sandy, glorious beaches  and dunes, which are all wonderfully dog friendly.  The lovely village of Horsey is just a few miles away via a coastal path walk and that’s where all the beautiful seal colonies congregate, especially in the winter.

Poppyland really is a very short walk to the beach and the village itself has a number of things to do.  There is also a really lovely dog friendly pub nearby (Fisherman’s Return 20min walk/5min car), a lovely chip shop, Winterton beach café is about 20 minutes along the dunes or beach.

By Car: Easy access to local supermarkets (Co Op 5 mins, Tesco 15 minutes),

Yarmouth 25 minutes, Acle 20 minutes, The Broads 15 minutes, Horsey (Seals) 10 Minutes, Waxham 15 Minutes. Wide range of large Supermarkets and Retail Outlets are available in Great Yarmouth.

  1. Alison Howard & 3 Doggy Monsters

    We stayed here for a week in May & it was perfect! From arriving into a secure parking spot with 6’ gates (no escaping dogs from the car), the beach out the back gate & the patio doors into the garden so the dogs could wander in & out. It was amazing. We visited loads of places – everwhere seemed to be dog friendly including Norwich Cathedral! We particularly liked Cromer.

    The facilities in the cottage were great too. Fridge & freezer, oven & loads of cooking equipment. We tend to eat in as it’s easier with the dogs & cooking wasn’t a problem. We did an online delivery to arrive the evening of arrival from Tesco. Driver found the cottage easily, we did provide the What3Words location just in case but driver knew the area.

    Bed was super comfy, plenty pillows etc. Blinds & curtains on the window so nice & dark. Slept great.

    Many thanks for a lovely week, I have enjoyed together with my five miniature dachshunds.
    Comfortable and warm and great views of the sea
    We loved the beach and sand dune walks, despite being cold and windy
    We visited the Hound Ground at Winterton, and Hirsts Farm Shop and Cafe are a must for all

  3. Maria

    We had such a lovely time at poppyland with our #pack. The garden is just the best place to sit and enjoy a cup of tea looking out at the view of the dunes and sea. So peaceful and a truly relaxing break and the dogs loved it. There are lots of good beaches around but being able to just pop across the dunes with the dogs from the garden to a lovely quiet and sandy beach is brilliant. There is a great chinese a couple of minutes drive away and a co-op for supplies.
    Ideally situated for lots of days out we had lots of fun exploring the broads, the coast and local history. Thanks to Gail and the team for another excellent experience.

    Hi Gail and team 🙂 Thank you so much for making us feel so welcome. We had a great stay and will be seeing you again next year!

    Had a lovely week. Garden is just great and the views are amazing. Bed was so comfy

  6. Tracie

    Another lovely week at Poppyland. The location is the main reason we keep coming back with walks directly from the garden to the beach and through the Valley. Wait for low tide and you can enjoy the enormous stretches of sandy beach every day. Super secure garden and ample room for lots of dogs inside too. Lovely views out to sea whilst enjoying breakfast sitting at the picnic table, what’s not to like!
    A short drive, 8 mins to the great farm shop and cafe at Hirst’s where we can also indulge ourselves with sea food from Dabs and Crabs.
    We are back again in a few weeks time for another stay, our third which says it all. Thank you owner Kate and to Gail and her team for making us so welcome.

    Wow! Fantastic cottage, Everything you could possibly want. As per usual lovely breakfast at Poppys. For February, the weather was great! Managed long walks on the beach every day. Only downside…..the chippy was shut 🙂

  8. Karen & Jeff

    Thank you for another lovely holiday here at Poppylands. Both of us and our dogs love it here. Its perfect for our deaf and blind dogs. They love the big garden and we all feel relaxed as soon as we get here. Before we know it its time to go home and we can’t wait for the next holiday to come along. Its our 3rd holiday at Poppylands and the dogs think its their second home. Thank you to Kate for allowing us to use this lovely place we are very grateful. We have had some great walks in the dunes and also onto the beach. We love walking at Winterton. We have been really lucky with the weather and enjoy sitting in the garden with the dogs looking over the dunes and watching the boats in the sea. Karen, Jeff and the gang x

    We’ve had the best time ever! House was gorgeous and clean. Location is perfect. We will miss that view. The dogs have had the best time on the dunes. House had everything we needed and more. Can’t wait to come back

  10. Jill and the Houndies

    Just a quick few words – absolutely excellent, fantastic, perfect, awesome, beautiful, peaceful….. everything, even the weather!!! Thank you!!

  11. Jennifer

    I stayed here with my two dogs. Your cottage was truly delightful, homely and my dogs really appreciated the doggy treats, beds and garden to run around in. Your cottage was far more than well equipped. It went above and beyond that! Bonus points to you and your team.

    We’ve had a fabulous week at Poppyland and just loved the easy access to the amazing beach.
    Poppylands was just perfect for us and our 6 dogs who had a great week too
    We enjoyed exploring the area and the circular walk from Winterton to East and West Somerton via the dunes and the Burnley Estate as well as the walk from Horsey Windpump to the beach and back.
    The NT parking and cafe there was fabulous too
    We also liked the Seal View Cafe near the beach in Winterton on Sea and Hirsts Farm Shop and Dabs and Crabs at Ormesby
    The weather was very kind and Poppyland was warm and comfortable and we all went home very relaxed Thank you x

  13. Caroline, Norm, Hula and Otis

    We have loved our holiday at Poppylands
    Big paws up from the dogs
    Thank you
    The beach was fab and they loved their daily splashes
    Thanks for the goodies. We have enjoyed it so much we have booked for next year
    Thank you for a wonderful relaxing holiday

  14. Natalie and Mike

    Thank you for a lovely stay. Poppyland has everything we could ever need for our canine friends and the location is perfect, We even saw some local wildlife when a snake came into the living room
    We will certainly be back

  15. Candice

    Poppyland has a large enough garden for my 2 dogs. The gate at the bottom of the garden took us straight onto the sand dunes and beach. We walked in both directions – to Hemsby a couple of times, and into Winterton.
    The sunrise from the main bedroom was spectacular every morning!

    Lovely stay at Poppyland – Thank you! What a beautiful view to wake up to every morning!
    We’ve enjoyed walking along the Norfolk coastal path to have breakfast at Poppys Cafe and the Fishermans Return is a wonderful dog friendly pub!
    We hope to be back! 🙂

  17. Steffi, Dave, Sheila, Jack and Bane

    Thank you for a wonderful week here at Poppyland
    The views are fantastic, access to the beach perfect
    Our reactive doggy, Bane was able to have a great time and we didn’t need to worry about him getting getting out.
    The cottage has everything we needed and definitely catered to the doggies.
    Even though there were other dogs on the beach it wasn’t busy and we could easily avoid them without Bane getting stressed.
    Hemsby and Yarmouth were lovely and catered well for our 6 year old
    The local takeaways were really nice on the nights we didn’t fancy cooking
    The house was very clean on arrival and it was comfortable. I would definitely recommend it to others
    I would really like to use Pack Holidays again as it took so much stress out of looking for the perfect place for our Bane
    Thank you again!

    Very relaxing comfy, lazy few days away with the dogs. Didn’t venture far, just down the dunes and beach with very happy dogs. A wander into Winterton and Hemsby
    Otherwise just relaxing reading, watching TV and a game of Dogopoly!
    Thank you

  19. Fiona and Mark

    We have had a fabulous week. The bungalow is in the perfect location. Walks from the end of the garden every day. You can walk in either direction on the dunes or the beach.
    Hemsby is great for the children and there are so many dog friendly places.
    If you walk to Winterton, there are the dog friendly cafes on the beach. (The dogs get sausages!)
    We loved it so much we have booked for next year!
