It is a beautifully appointed single storey cottage with great character. It is incredibly spacious and will delight you with all the luxurious touches.
It is aptly named, as the poet William Cowper lived there for a spell. See further information about him here.
Our lovely owners appreciate and proactively welcome multi dog owners (as they are multi dog owners too) and wish your dogs to have just as much a lovely holiday as you do.
Poet’s Corner is situated in the centre of Mundesley village in Russell Terrace, just off the High Street. It is a 2-5 minute walk (depending on brisk or lazy stroll) to its Blue Flag beach! via the High Street, and Mundesley itself has many amenities (there is a village store, butcher, hairdresser, cafes, restaurants and pubs). There is a crazy golf activity centre on Beach Road, and on the outskirts of the village there is a golf course with a rather good driving range.
There are some wonderful circular and coastal walks to enjoy with your dogs. Take a look here 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 coming down the coast, you can find the beautiful villages of Happisburgh, Sea Palling and Horsey to explore. With the historic city of Norwich just 20 miles away, there is a lot to do from this marvellous base in Mundesley.
When you arrive open the paddock gate to Poets Corner and park inside the enclosed garden where there there is plenty of parking on the drive in front of the garages to the left hand side of the cottage. (There is space for 3 – 4 cars.) The paddock gate, once closed, will keep bigger dogs secure in the spacious parking area. For smaller dogs, entry into the front garden via the gate adjacent to the paddock gate is very secure. All fences are 5-6 foot high. Follow the path around the shrubbery area to the front door.
On entry into the cottage, the spacious and impressive hallway runs almost the full length of the house.
Turn left to:
Entry to the bedroom is on your left hand side. It is spacious and airy with a beautiful superking bed.

There is a wonderful rustic dining table with seating for 8, (4 dining chairs and a dining bench), several large comfortable couches, with stunning views into the very large, well kept garden.
An imposing feature woodburner (run on mains gas) heats up this stunning room very quickly, you can imagine curling up with your dogs in front of this, watching a little television (wall mounted 40 inch) or reading a great novel with a nice glass of wine.
Some beautifully tasteful furniture sets off this fabulous living area.
Note that Poets Corner has underfloor heating…..a real treat for four legged friends!

Our 3rd holiday at Poets Corner, I love it here so much, as always it was spotless. Our lab Ben loved his holidays here, but we sadly lost him last October, so this year our 7 month old lab Monty enjoyed the wonderful safe garden, and had great fun. It is just a wonderful place to enjoy all that this part of the country has to offer, and lots of “dog friendly” places to eat. Once again we are sad to leave but do so very relaxed, and ready to hopefully come back again next year. Many thanks to Gail and her team.
Carol, Alex and Monty (The Labrador), Poets Corner, Mundesley, Norfolk
What an amazing place!! Poets corner is a hidden gem. Family and dogs have had a great holiday, garden is secure, beach is 2 mins walk, nice pub gardens, who could ask for more!?! Poets Corner has everything you need and more, will definitely be coming back.
P.S. Fish and chips are amazing too!! Yum
Spencer, Georgia and Mya + Bo, Bella and Teddy, Poets Corner, Mundesley, Norfolk
Our 2nd visit and I’m planning our 3rd! The seals at Horsey are a must and we enjoyed a wildlife boat trip whilst we were there. The town of Sheringham has some nice shops.
Everywhere is dog friendly and there are lovely National trust places nearby.
What can I say – everyone else has said it all!! Just a fabulous dog friendly holiday cottage. My 3 Collies have been in their element – as have we. This was our first time in Mundesley and everyone has been so friendly.
Just cant wait to return!!
Gill and Robin Skinner+ Masie, Webster and Ester , Poets Corner, Mundesley, Norfolk
Had a fab week – great location and plenty to walk straight too – the beach, little park, Fish n Fry, The Ship, New Sage, Corner house -all great!
Bacton woods have great walks for the dogs, followed by sugar and spice cafe at Bacton, great cakes! Loved staying at Poets Corner, garden great for the dogs, they didn’t want to come in most of the time! will be back! Thanks for a great stay.
Our 2nd visit here, a very hot week but we were nice and cool. A very relaxing week, with the extreme heat elsewhere, this corner of Norfolk has been 4-5 degrees cooler. Early or late walk has been the routine, sea has been great to paddle, Bacton woods is a nice, cool option. The Ship Inn is a great place to stroll to for a beer and watch the sea.
Thanks Gail for a great relaxing week.
Julie, John + Dogs, Poets Corner, Mundesley, Norfolk
Our 2nd time here, love it so much, the village is lovely and the house is just everything you need for a relaxing holiday. The weather was glorious, but a lovely breeze off the sea made it comfortable. Thank you Gail and team, and really appreciated the welcome pack.
I am sure we will be back next year.
Carol, Alex and Ben, Poets Corner, Mundesley, Norfolk
Came here in November and loved it. Just had a 2 weeks ( best decision ever!) and loved it more, the house is perfect and the village is beautiful. Lots to see and do in the area. Beach walks are great – especially Trimingham.
If you walk left from Mundesley. Cromer is a nice place to visit (near the pier) and also Overstrand beach + garden centre (10 mins drive) Norwich Cathedral is magnificent and well worth a trip. Local chippy is fabulous too 🙂
I fell in love with “cecil” ( who I named)O a blackbird who visited the patio 3x daily – he had a clubfoot and only uses one leg whilst here we spent lots of time in the garden and named a Blackbird “cecil” he is such a character. watch out for him and please feed if you can – ( local flower shop sells food) xxx

We have all just returned from our first stay at Poets corner and what an absolute delight that it was! The location is absolutely perfect and the beach is right on your door step, which is super handy when you have 4 dogs with you. The cottage is amazing and has everything you could want from a holiday and more, so much space both inside and out and equipped with everything that you need to have a comfortable stay. (the underfloor heating is a real delight, especially when getting out of the shower/bath), beds are so comfy that you never want to get up, the garden is so superb for your pooches and is literally a taste of heaven for them, near enough every night we had to drag them inside to go bed. Right from the moment we parked up in the driveway we knew that we was in for a pure treat! we can’t thank Gail and her team enough for all the wonderful things they do! I could keep writing and fill a book with all the fabulous things to say about this place! I cannot recommend this place enough and if you’re looking for a perfect and stress free holiday in Norfolk then please visit Pack Holidays as you won’t be disappointed, we may have only just left but we already can’t wait to book and be back again next year!!
Jordan Wardle, Poets Corner, Mundesley, Norfolk
Had a wonderful week, even the “beast from the east” couldn’t spoil our stay! The cottage is very cosy and excellent garden for the labradoodles. A special mention to Gail for allowing us to stay 2 extra nights, we would definitely recommend Pack Holidays and will definitely be returning again soon. Definitely a 5 stars from us!
Philip and Pauline, Poets Corner, Mundesley, Norfolk
This is our third time (we think??) at Poets Corner and it has been perfect as always. The cottage was beautifully decorated for Christmas, we had a lovey relaxed stay and spent Christmas Day in our pyjamas watching films with the fire blazing, it was perfect! The dogs loved running round the garden chasing each other. We’ve been very lucky with the weather. We loved the welcome hamper full of goodies for humans and pooches, it is a lovely touch and very generous. We love our visits to Poets Corner and have already booked to come back again in April, we cant wait! Thank you so much to Gina and Gail, love from Vicky, Frazer and Frankie.
Vicky, Frazer and Frankie., Poets Corner, Mundesley, Norfolk
Fabulous dog friendly cottage. We had a terrific stay, lots to explore with a perfect place to come back and relax, our pups loved the garden too!
Mark, Elaine, Ian and Leslie, Poets Corner, Mundesley, Norfolk
Wow, wow, wow! We’ve had a wonderful holiday with our 7 dogs. Cant wait to come back! We definitely recommend the Rocky Bottom crab and lobster restaurant in Cromer and a visit to the Cromer Pier. Mundesley has been wonderful! Thank you

Poets Corner, Mundesley, Norfolk
Thank you so much for the welcome pack. The dogs especially loved their biscuits and my little boy loved the carpet in the sitting area! He found it so comfy to sit on! Thank you for sharing this gorgeous cottage with us!
John and Jane, Poets Corner, Mundesley, Norfolk
Had a lovely week, had some great food at The Ship Inn which was dog friendly and human friendly. Corner cafe does a lovely breakfast and snacks, is also very dog friendly. Felbrigg Hall is definitely well worth the visit – thanks a lot Gail
Poets Corner, Mundesley, Norfolk
WOW! What a lovely place, thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Ponchers Inn, the Manor and The Star at Lessingham are all very good for food. Weather has been good from Tuesday onwards, thank you for letting us stay here! P.S. thank you for the goodies
Barbara, Poets Corner, Mundesley, Norfolk
I first saw Poets Corner advertised last year and have always wanted to stay. When yoy book online with just pictures to go by you are always a little apprehensive to whether it will meet the expectations. Oh my! It met and then some. It is amazing, immaculate and we just want to move here forever! It really is my dream home. The garden is immense, the space was enough for my girls and dog to get lost in. Corner house was great for a light lunch and fab you can take dogs in too! We had a car so we went to Horsey to see the seals and Wroxham to go boating. The beach is only 5 mins away and is always quiet. We will definitely be back, thank you Gail for such an amazing stay!
Thelma, Euan, Alexia and Theo , Poets Corner, Mundesley, Norfolk
What an absolute stunning home. The photos just don’t do it justice. We have been holidaying with our dogs for years and poets corner is probably the best that we have stayed in, lovely high quality features and fittings. We have visited, Wells, Sheringham, Felbrigg Hall, Pigneys Wood, Bacton Woods, Cart Gap and Small Sticks Cafe. A visiit to the ‘Fair Maiden’ fish shop in Happisburgh is a must (close to Mundesley). The weather has been amazing and we definitely havent even needed the heating on! Thank you
Carina, Ant and Mylo, Poets Corner, Mundesley, Norfolk
WOW!!! This is not a cottage or a bungalow, its a villa! A little piece of the Mediterranean here i9n England! From the dog treats to the dog walks we loved it! Most people write a review but we just want to live here with our doggies!
Suzy and Alex , Poets Corner, Mundesley, Norfolk
Out in the garden, supreme luxury both inside and out and we cant say thank you enough! The local chippy and Chinese get a 10/10 from all of us and would definitely visit them again =, even if we was just passing through the village! Place was spotless on arrival . We’ve already made up our minds that we will be coming back again next year and cannot wait! Thank you again Gail you have been fab!
Gaye Doig , Poets Corner, Mundesley, Norfolk
Such a wonderful property , so well equipped. Comfy beds, great dog friendly garden, in fact everything you need for relaxing holiday. It was so lovely to walk from the door to shops and the beach. Everything so near and handy, good welcome pack. Really appreciated treats for the dog. Hope to return soon!
Carol, Alex and Ben , Poets Corner, Mundesley, Norfolk
Many many thanks Gail for letting us stay in this beautiful bungalow. The bungalow was even better than we expected and the secure garden was perfect for our ‘girls’. The welcome pack was wonderful and very much appreciated, thank you Gail we hope to be back again for another restful holiday!
Jenny and Mick , Poets Corner, Mundesley, Norfolk
What a beautiful bungalow, has to be one of the nicest we’ve stayed in and the garden is amazing – we didn’t want to leave! the Weavers Ways has been great all week and have don lots of coastal walks and everyone is just so friendly! spent many hours on the beach, crazy golf was brilliant fun and food in the Manor Hotel was excellent especially the carvery, we love Mundesley
Janet and Paddy, Poets Corner, Mundesley, Norfolk
we have all had such a fantastic week and love poets corner. On arrival we were really impressed with the standard of accommodation and the level of cleanliness – as a person who’s a little bit OCD, it’s always a good sign when I don’t feel the need to clean. the cottage is well equipped and the garden is fantastic for the dogs – they’re going to be sad to leave it and return to our small garden at home. Mundesley is a great place to be based as there is so much to do and see within a short distance! Having been lucky with the weather, the children loved the beach and playing in the sea!
Adam, Claire, Eloise, Felix and pooches, Poets Corner, Mundesley, Norfolk
Poets Corner is in the most fanstastic location to see the stunning Norfolk coastline. Everywhere is furnished beautifully and the ‘extras’ are fantastically generous. The house is GREAT and totally geared up for the dogs to have a super time too. We have had wonderful days with Wiggins and Bilbo; seeing the seals at Horsey, the kippers at Cley smokehouse, Mary Janes Fish and Chips on Cromer Pier, Norwich Cathedral, cream teas at Wells-Next-The-Sea, Blakeney Point Nature Reserve, Felbrigg National Trust walks, and not forgetting the wonderful places in Mundesley. Poets Corner is a 5 star place to stay and we have loved every day here. Thank you Gina and Gail!!!!!
Elizabeth, Ian, Florence, Margaret and Matt, Poets Corner, Mundesley, Norfolk
We’ve had a wonderful week at Poets Corner. The property is beautiful and the garden is perfect. Our pack have had a wonderful time zooming about burning off the energy which is just what they needed. The village is lovely and everyone is so friendly! The ramp down to the beach was a little steep for our golden oldies so we took them to Happisburgh beach instead as its our favourite. (and its only a 15 minute drive away). We even saw some seals and came face to face with a seal pup! The welcome pack was lovely and a lovely touch. The beasts enjoyed the liver cake very much. It is a shame we have to leave, I wish we could stay longer but I have absolutely no doubt we’ll be back again. Thank you Gina and Gail!
