West Cottage, Walnut Farm, Waxham
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!!)

Reactive Dog Guide
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.
