3 Star Reactive Dog Friendly

3 Star Reactive Dog Rated

West 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 dog. West Cottage is situated in a very quiet area, off the beaten track and at the rear of a non working farm and live caravan site. There are touring caravans at the front of the site which cannot be seen from the cottages. The cottages are at the rear of the land and in a well protected and quiet location.There are two static caravans on the other side of the garden fence, however. These caravans can be seen from an upstairs bedroom window and the top of them from downstairs. The fencing around the cottage is at least 5 foot high (and higher in some areas) with the whole lot being solid fencing and no gaps. There is a cottage next door (which is another holiday let) that will tend to have dogs. The fencing between the cottages is high but please be aware if you have very noise reactive dogs, you may wish to contact Gail to discuss any concerns.The cottage does not look into another one. Parking is at the front of the property with access directly through the front door. The parking area is not fenced so please be aware of this. Please note that as this is a very rural location, there may be, on occasion, the slight possibility of hearing a bird scarer. We have had no reports of bird scarers at any time in the past 2 years, but given the location (and the possibility of crop rotation) we cannot rule it out in future.There are nice quiet walks around the locality including a private 1.5 mile walk around the land surrounding Walnut Farm. Please be aware there may be others using it too.

(19 customer reviews)

West Cottage (which has been newly renovated for our lovely guests) is a dog friendly cottage in Waxham, situated in the rear of the farm grounds, next to East Cottage. It is quiet, peaceful and very, very tranquil. Waxham is a fabulously quiet and peaceful hamlet, with lots of wildlife, fresh air and opportunities to explore the outdoors. Horsey (and its famous Poppylands, Horsey Mill and Ross’ Wildlife Boat Trips) is just along the road, and Sea Palling the other way, with its Blue Flag beach, dog friendly pub and cafe. We have (of course) wonderful coastal path walking. There is a 1 mile private dog walk on site at Walnut Farm and some lovely bridle paths taking you towards the old Horsey Mill.

You can hire a hot tub (for an additional charge) for your stay at West Cottage!

There is also a NEW and very short walk to the beach direct from the cottage (5-10 mins to the dunes!!)

  1. Kim

    We had the most amazing time in west cottage the dogs loved every minute from playing in the garden to running in the dunes going for a swim in the sea and rock pools away from the seals .we enjoyed a few hours at the amusements in Great Yarmouth with the kids (adults )I found a amazing wool shop .in a village somewhere .Thankyou for all your help and Helen and mark for such a lovely place to stay

  2. Anonymous

    We left this lovely cottage yesterday, it is a beautiful location, with all the beaches being dog friendly. My favourite beach was Horsey Gap where you can watch the seals. This is about a 2 minute drive from West Cottage. The cottage is lovely and very dog friendly, complete with dog tags for your poo bags in case they get lost. The pubs all allow dogs too!! Can’t recommend this enough!! Thank you Helen for letting us stay xx

    Thank you for providing a peaceful break. The cottage was beautiful and immaculately clean. The welcome pack was an added bonus and well enjoyed. The walks & beaches were amazing & seeing the seals was unbelievable. The dogs made themselves at home and really enjoyed the enclosed garden. We would definitely recommend the cottage to all our friends and would love to return in the future. Thank you so much.

  14. Rebecca, Jason, Matthew, Edwards and border collie Barney

    We loved staying here – Great base to explire the east coast. Fabulous beaches for the dog and he loved the garden (though we may have lost some balls in the bushes!) We loved seeing the seals swimming at Horsey. Very relaxed, just what we needed!

  15. Bobbie, James, Dexter, Hattie and Bella

    What a lovely cottage! I think this is the best we have stayed in. The dogs loved the garden and biscuits. Everything we needed was here and we’ve had some lovely walks without having to move the car. We’re sorry to leave. One of my dogs found a previous guests tennis ball in the bushes. Wow! Added to the toy box!!

  16. Katie, Julie, Moss and Fern

    This is our second stay at West Cottage. we absolutely love it here, it is one of the best places we have ever stayed. So peaceful, beautiful surroundings, lovely and well equipped cottage, seals within walking distance, amazing garden and thoughtful welcome pack. We are already planning our third stay! See you soon and thanks again!

  17. Sally 🙂

    First time at West Cottage and we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay from the welcome pack (delicious) to the comfy beds, fabulous garden and spacious cottage. We (all 6 of us and 3 dogs) have fallen in love with Walnut Farm and it’s great location. It has been a fabulous week of meeting up as Nichola, Jay, Tammy, Kayla and Jake (my daughter in law and 4 grandchildren) travelled from their home in Scotland to join me and the dogs. Bure Valley Railway Sea Palling, the walk to the beach, the perimeter walk – AMAZING!!

  18. Lee, Serena, Ray, Ruby, Edie and Jax

    Really lovely cottage in a beautiful location. It is unusual to find somewhere in the area that isn’t dog friendly! We had only one rainy day when we enjoyed a trip on the Bure Valley railway and had a lovely Sunday lunch at The Black Boys in Aylsham. We had alot of fun at Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach and Wroxham Barns. Waxham is such a beautiful beach, we enjoyed days there swimming and playing in the sand and seal spotting. We’d have a BBQ in the lovely garden, head back to the beach to watch the sunset from the top of the dunes. Would definitely recommend Ross Wildlife Boat Tour. We enjoyed relaxing in the garden, listening to the birds (including the owl) and bat spotting

  19. Michelle, James and 5 boys

    Lovely cottage, great outside space for the boys. Nice and quiet, close to some fantastic beaches. Horsey Gap and the seals were amazing to see. Waxham beach great and Sea Palling has some lovely little bays to paddle in. Welcome pack fantastic for all of us. Great idea having dog tags for the dogs. The dog walk on site was lovingly maintained. Thank you. Hope to come back some day
