East Cottage is situated in the rambling grounds of Walnut Farm, in Waxham. Our lovely owners have a small caravan touring site and two static caravans in the grounds (at the front and the side of the land).
East Cottage (which has been newly renovated for our lovely guests) is situated in the rear of the farm grounds, next to West Cottage (also a dog friendly holiday 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. Sea Palling Cycle Hire is a short drive/walk away, with Horsey (and its famous Poppylands, Horsey Mill and Ross’ Wildlife Boat Trips) 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 1.7 mile private dog walk on site at Walnut Farm and some lovely bridle paths taking you towards the old Horsey Mill.
You can also buy some locally sourced provisions on site from the owners such as free range eggs (those eggs are also included in your welcome pack)
