Project Description

Stable Cottage, Marshgate, North Walsham


Stable Cottage – peaceful and tranquil, is situated within an enclosed wall garden.  It is secluded, sheltered and south facing and surrounded by an imaginative and well- planted garden. It is one of three holiday cottages within Marshgate House (the others are The Dairy and the Coach House).  It is situated in a very quiet location, just 10 minutes walk from the centre of the bustling market town of North Walsham where many dog friendly cafe and pubs can be found.  There is a lovely countryside dog walk accessed from right outside the door.  Witton Woods is accessible from the Coach House on foot and our wonderful beaches are just a 10 minute drive.  The quieter beaches are very dog friendly.  The Norfolk Broads are a short 10 minute drive away and there are a number of boat hire companies who welcome dogs on boats.

Location and Facilities

On arrival, park in the shared courtyard, open the gate to Stable Cottage and take the path (with a few steps) leading to the cottage.  Please note that access into the courtyard is via large 9 foot gates which will require you to turn a handle and push open.  Please do get in touch if you have any queries about this as they may be a little heavy for some people.  Go into the property to the….

A private paved terrace with garden furniture to enjoy some alfresco dining. There are very well planted enclosed gardens beyond with steps back down to the parking area and plenty of free secure bike storage.

The garden is quite secure for most dogs, however the fencing is not higher than 5 feet.

Stable cottage garden may not be suitable for very very small dogs (such as dachshunds) as there are very small gaps in the picket fence that they may be able to squeeze through, into either the outer secure courtyard or the secure owners walkway.

Stable Cottage can be rented with The Dairy and the Coach House for a larger group.

We firmly believe that you know your dogs best.

From the A1151 from Norwich,  turn left onto the A149 signposted to Cromer and North Walsham.  Follow this road for 5 miles until you arrive at North Walsham.  At the first set of traffic lights, turn right to go into North Walsham town.  At the roundabout, take the second exit, (with Paston College on your left).  At the next roundabout take the first exit (Roys on your left and Lidls on your right).  Follow the road  past the Post Office and Library (New Road) and at the next bend in the road, take the left turn into Pound Road.  Follow this road going straight on at the crossroads (Manor Road school on your right hand side).  After the crossroads, the road turns into Marshgate.  Go over several speed bumps and after the road bends to the right, there is a right hand turn with a white cottage at teh corner.  Take this right hand turn (which is still Marshgate).  Stable Cottage is accessed through the very large black gates on the right hand side of the road attached to the black fronted Norfolk brick building.  The gate is large and requires a handle to be turned to open, then the gate pushed to access the courtyard. If you have any concerns questions about this, please do not hesitate to contact us



Thank you for a wonderful stay, perfect retreat for me and my two dogs – the garden was perfect. We loved being so near to the beaches – Mundesley and Happisburgh were our favourites! Out week in this cottage has been perfect!

We had such a lovely stay, comfortable cottage and we all enjoyed watching the birds. The location of the cottage is a great base, near to the Broads and coast. Happisburgh beach was great and definitely our favourite – Max met a seal! We also went to the local garden centre which was lovely for scones and cakes.

We stayed at Stable Cottage last week and were very impressed. It met all our needs and those of our 9 month old Labrador on his first holiday away from our home county. A crate was provided for him, along with a generous chill-out area for him, which he made regular use of. He made himself right at home, as did we. The owners, Simon and Felicity, along with Gail, were kindness itself. On what was to be our last day we had a family bereavement in the county and we requested another night’s stay. Not only did they agree, but refused to accept payment for the extra day. We were so touched. Highly recommended, and we would go back in an instant
