Echoes is a spacious, comfortable, welcoming and relaxing cottage. It was built in 2006 and has been very thoughtfully designed to maximise space and light. It is ideal for a family holiday right throughout the year and is a perfect place to explore Norfolk’s beach, Broad and country!
Echoes is quietly situated on Chapel Road, just away from the hub of a beautiful seaside village, a 5 minute walk to the beach, with access to cafes, fish and chip shop, a pub, an amusement arcade, a local shop which sells practically everything(!) and a Post Office.
Take the opportunity to explore all along our Norfolk coast! Turn right on entry to the beach to walk along to Waxham, Horsey and Winterton-on-Sea…..Great for seal-spotting, or turn left to head towards Cart Gap and Happisburgh beach or jump in the car and explore further up t the coast to Mundesley, Cromer and Sheringham. There are lots of super walks around the village too.

Reactive Friendly Award Details
Echoes is a 2 star Reactive Friendly Pack Holidays cottage. Here are the reasons why, but also more importantly, what aspects of the cottage may not be suitable for your reactive.
Echoes is situated on a residential road, quite central in Sea Palling village. There are two residential houses on either side of Echoes. There are passers by at the front of the house but the windows overlooking the little road are the living room and kitchen, with the garden at the rear of the property. The garden is quite private. The fencing surrounding the garden is high (6 feet and solid fencing) with an additional 10 feet hedge on the other side of the fence which is parallel to the house. AS it is a residential area, there may be dogs heard in other cottages so if you have a very noise reactive dog, you may wish to contact Gail first to discuss any concerns.
The access to the beach is via Beach Road, so if walking direct to the beach, you may meet other people and dogs doing the same thing.
Parking is at the front of the property with access directly through the front door. The parking area is not fenced so please be aware of this.
We have had no reports of bird scarers heard whilst staying at Echoes.
Once on the beach, there is plenty of room to be quite isolated from others, and nice dune walks reached from Clink Road and rural walks via this route too. You can exit Chapel Road, turn right, then up to the bridle path on the left hand side of Waxham Road, in order to enter the beach at a quieter location during busier times.

We had a lovely holiday, weather has been amazing. Loved being so close to the beach, definitely deserves its Blue Flag award. Great place to stay, lots of room for everyone. Lots of kitchen equipement, lovely private garden, everything clean when we arrived, nice decor, very quiet area.
Woul recommend Pack Holidays to friends and family and looking at next years with you.
We’ve had a lovely break and have enjoyed exploring the local beaches with Poppy. A very different sort of holiday for us! Hope to be back at this lovely cottage some time next year.
We spotted a seal in the waves at Horsey and met lots of other ‘doggie’ people. Everyone was so welcoming although not the easiest access from Northumberland!
