Neaps is a dog friendly cottage. It has hard floors throughout except the bedroom and the garden is very well dog proofed
There are some wonderful circular and coastal walks to enjoy with your dogs (http://maps.norfolk.gov.uk/trails/) and the area is fantastic for getting out and about on your bike. If you fancy a bit of town shopping the seaside towns of Cromer and Sheringham are a short drive away, and more locally, why dont you explore some of the lovely little villages we have nearby such as Happisburgh, Sea Palling, Horsey, East Ruston (famous for its Vicarage Gardens!) or head up to Mundesley and catch a bit of crazy golf! Lots of dog friendly places to explore and quite a few National Trust bases to visit (my favourite is Felbrigg…..Lots of super walks, and Blicking Hall – wow!) With the historic city of Norwich just 20 miles away, there is a lot to do from this marvellous base in Hickling.
