  1. Davina and Libby

    Splendid weather this week Wonderfully dog friendly house and beautifully clean. Lovely stay, thank you

  2. Carol and June

    Another great visit (3rd) Welcome pack was much appreciated,. Very dog friendly home from home, clean and well stocked

  3. Christine Bailey

    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Saretta, despite dreadful weather! Comfortable, well-equipped bungalow just a few minutes from the glorious beach. It was a real joy to know that throws would be provided for the furniture, as they are so bulky to pack. Also provided are dog towels and bowls. All mod cons for the humans too. Nice secure garden, I can imagine the little conservatory would be really snug on a warm day too. We enjoyed the local beaches and NT estates for walks, and can recommend a trip out on the water with Ross’ Wildlife Tours – dogs are welcome- would be better without the drenching, but hey ho!

  4. Barbara and Mike

    This is the fifth time we have been to Saretta over the last three years. It is like coming home – we love it so much. Pippa is very reluctant to leave and we have had to make her get into the car. She loves the beach too.

  5. Christina and Scott, Wookie Kora Norman and Maggie

    Saretta is in a perfect location for lovely beach walks with the dogs.
    It is clean and spacious with everything we needed. The dogs loved the large garden and it was so quiet and peaceful
    We visited Cromer and Mundesley and enjoyed fish and chips from Sea Palling chippy and evenings at the arcades
    Everywhere is so dog friendly – It was Koras first Pack Holiday (9 year old rscue) and she has made herself at home at Saretta. Thank you

  6. Deborah, David and Bonnie and Audrey

    We have had a lovely relaxing week, despite the breezy weather – very bracing on the beach!
    We have been very comfortable, conservatory was lovely and warm during the day and the dogs can come and go in the garden
    We enjoyed a chippy tea from the Mermaids Catch (the cauliflower wings a nice veggie option). Had donuts and doggy ice cream from Sandy Hills. Lovely fresh asparagus and eggs from the farm shop and cakes from the local shop. Walked along the beach to Waxham and enjoyed a sandwich and halloumi bagette at Dunes Cafe

    Loved it here! The layout of the bungalow is perfect! We have had a very relaxing week. The weather stayed dry and it’s been so peaceful. Love that there are no streetlights.
    Stars are bright on a clear night
    Every pub we have been to has been dog friendly, thank you for the dog treats and biscuits!

  10. TJ, Jules, Flo and Leo

    A lovely peaceful short break for us at Saretta and the weather was perfect for some lovely walks, including the Sea Palling circular. Oasis Indian (Stalham) and Kingfisher Fish Bar (Walcott) are highly recommended – battered Quorn sausage and pea fritter for veggies!!
    The Star Inn at Lessingham is a real gem for real ale!
    Thank you Pack Holidays for another dog friendly holiday 🙂 🙂

  20. Rod and Karen with Emmie and Skye

    Our second visit here to Saretta! Just as good as the first!

  21. Barbara and Mike

    We had a wonderful holiday again at Saretta at Sea Palling. It did not rain but the wind was a little keen but it was everywhere else too. It did not stop us from walking miles a long the beach. Beautiful sand with the odd pebble which made it very interesting. Our son and young grandson stayed for a long weekend and we had a great time honing our skills with sand castles and sea defences! Pippa our English springer spaniel had a wonderful time and she remembered from the year before as to where we were staying. Saretta is very well equipped, extremely clean and has a lovely secure garden. Not being far from the beach was a great benefit. The whole village is dog friendly and made us all welcome. We have booked again for next year

  22. Mike Barbara and Pippa

    Our second visit
    When we arrived, Pippa knew exactly where she was going and made herself at home. We love the bungalow and Sea Palling. The beaches and walks are great. We hope to come again next year. Highly recommended xxx

  23. Sue Brittain

    Beautiful, well-equipped and comfortable bungalow with a fabulous garden for the dogs. We enjoyed many walks on perfect beaches nearby and also visited Bacton Woods for a change of scenery – well worth it. So nice to have everything – shop, pub, cafe – within walking distance. Thank you for a lovely stay – definitely highly recommended 😊

    Sue, Kirsty, Fynn and Rosie (our two mad border collies)

  24. Sally, Matthew and Dana, Keyko, Spy, Quizz, Raven, Nevar and Tulip

    Lovely cottage and perfect for 6 dogs. Very much enjoyed our stay. Perfect location. Great memories made celebrating a 60th birthday. Perfect beaches and pubs nearby. Will definitely be back!!

  25. Neil and Bernie and Reg, Barney, Charlie and Annie

    Fabulous 5 days, lovely bungalow, everything you could want and even better, 2 minutes walk to The Reefs Bar, although its 12 mins walk back 😉 Back in 4 weeks, cant wait! xx

  26. Gail Adams

    We loved Saretta, such a cosy, clean, comfortable place to stay. The beach at sunrise is glorious, no people or other dogs!!! and stunning colours.

    Horsey Gap was a lovely walk for the dogs, with lots of new scents + sights.

  27. Gail Adams

    So impressed with Saretta. Roomy, cosy, very clean + well equipped. Love the cupboard handles + the cooker!!

    All furniture very comfy and easy to snooze on :). Fish + chips were lovely from Reefs bar; Indian from Oasis in Stalham was excellent, especially the delivery!

    Dogs were happy in the garden + on the beach. Thanks for the tote bags, they’ll be used a lot!

    We may well return 🙂

  28. Pat, Mark + Tibetan Spaniels

    Lovely bungalow, well equipped and a good size. Thought of everything, dog cages, dog tags etc. 3 min walk to a lovely beach, dog friendly. Bought local honey from next door and food at Reefs Bar very good. Even with 3 dogs the garden was secure.

    Looking to book again next year!

  29. Liz, Megan and Bella the pug

    Thank you for a wonderful stay. We have enjoyed the lovely weather and visiting lots of beaches and forests for dog walks. Saretta has been so comfortable, our favourite place to stay in Sea Palling!

  30. Gail Adams

    Our second fantastic visit here. Happisburgh beach perfect for the daily walks with the dogs. High recommend a visit to Hill House in Happisburgh for a pub lunch and historical interest, plus the St Mary of the Virgin Church. Star Inn always good. Wroxham Launch Hire for a trip on the Broads. Overall a wonderful holiday,. Thanks once again Pack Holidays!! xx

  31. Nancy, David and Rosa

    We’ve had a very relaxing and peaceful time at Saretta, which is very clean, comfy and really well equipped. Would recommend Ross’ Nature Boat Trip from Horsey Wind Pump, we saw herons, marsh harriers, cranes and so many dragonflies and butterflies. Also lovely long dog walks at Blickling Hall and Felbrigg Hall, both National Trust.

    Sea Palling beach great for a swim but alot of dogs for our reactive gir at busy times. Really appreciate the welcome pack too, thank you!

  32. Carol, Annie, James, Luke and Scout

    Lovely place in the best location, thank you! Chips at the shop are fab but be prepared to queue.

    Arcades and doughnuts!!

    Beautiful sunrises this week.

    Thanks for a lovely time!!

  33. Paul and Mira

    We had a lovely time, our 4 dogs absolutely loved the garden, the nearby beach, we saw seals in the sea at Horsey Gap, saw a Jubilee party for the Queens 70th going on at the nearby beach at Sea Palling, looked lots of fun for children, although the weather was mostly rain, on Tuesday we had a lovely sunny visit to Hickling Broad

    Absolutely loved the real fire. Thank you so much for a lovely 4 days. Your home Saretta is beautiful. Would love to return. Such a comfy bed too!

    Loved the Fabulous beach at Sea Palling too.

  34. Katerina, Eric & Crunchy

    Homely, comfortable and clean cottage!

    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, as did our dog.

    Visited Mundesley, Winterton-on-Sea and the Museum of the Broads (plus the tiny Firehouse Museum) and best of all was the boat trip (with the pooch) on the Broads!

    Definitely coming back.

    Loved the Fabulous beach at Sea Palling too.
