Mimi Cottage is situated on the outskirts of the seaside village of Sea Palling. It is a very short walk to the Blue Flag beach and is ideally situated for soaking up the stunning countryside views that the cottage has unfettered access to.
In Sea Palling you will find a dog friendly pub, dog friendly cafe (which does pretty amazing hot chocolate and fresh donuts), a really lovely fish and chip shop and a local shop all just a few minutes walk away.
Sea Palling beach is very dog friendly * but if you want to pop along to a quieter beach in the busier months, head to Waxham, Cart Gap and Happisburgh. Even outwith pupping season, you will still spot a seal or two (and they sometimes have great fun following your coastal walk whilst they keep up in the water 🙂 )
It is a short drive to Horsey, then Winterton on Sea (which also has a fabulous beach) but you can walk to both from Sea Palling, perhaps taking in a visit to The Nelsons Head or The Fishermans Arms. (Both pubs do very nice food and are both very dog friendly).
Hickling is a 5 minute drive away, or you can walk there via the bridle paths. There are two very nice dog friendly pubs to visit (The Greyhound and The Pleasureboat Inn), Hickling Broad, and the village also boasts a local riding stable. Stalham town has some shops, such as Truly Local (and on the way there you will pass our lovely local farm shop and Causeway Butchers).
* Dogs must turn right between May and September

Lovely place for a family get together celebrating a 60th birthday.
Lovely beach walks with dogs. The house is very accommodating and well stocked for entertaining all together. Will definitely considering coming back.. Had a nice meal at The Greyhound in Hickling
Thank you for a wonderful stay. The house is well equipped and in the most beautiful setting. The dogs had great fun running around the garden.
Brilliant beach walks at Sea Palling and Horsey. The Gunton Arms at Thorpe Market has exceptional food and views, it is also dog friendly.
Norwich was worth a visit, especially the tours at the castle and Jarrolds department store.
