Uncovered by the founder of Plum & Ashby, Eden Hall Cottage has been a labour of love, restored to create a calm and relaxing ‘get away from it all.’
From the handcrafted kitchen, by the award-winning Humphrey Munson, to the huge, freestanding cast iron baths and unique, individually sourced furniture, the spacious cottage abounds character, luxury and the personal touch.
The self-catering cottage sleeps up to ten people and is perfectly positioned just a short five-minute walk to the beach. It’s an ideal location for visiting the Broads, National Trust properties, ancient woodlands and hidden beaches. The quieter beaches are very dog friendly and the Norfolk Broads are a short 10 minute drive away (there are a number of boat hire companies who welcome dogs on boats).

The house is beautiful. Beds and linen so comfortable and we enjoyed the use of Plum and Ashby products so much that we have placed an order. Had a gorgeous lunch at The Gunton Arms. Highly recommend a visit there. Took a little drive over to Holt and then to Stiffkey stores which was a lovely way to spend an afternoon. We have had such a lovely relaxing weekend!!

Reactive Friendly Award Details
Eden Hall is a 2 star Reactive Friendly Pack Holidays cottage, but very much edging up to a 3 star. Here are the reasons why, but also more importantly, what aspects of the cottage may not be suitable for your reactive. Eden Hall is situated on a fairly quiet road leading from North Walsham to Bacton and Walcott. The garden is very secure with 9 feet high stone walls and lowest being 6 feet high. Whilst entry into the garden is from the road, once the 9 feet high gates are shut, the garden is private and very secure and dogs can be left with ultimate freedom in the garden.
There is a small patio area to the front of the property which can be secured with a side gate but please note that the road is on the other side of the 9 feet wall so if you do have noise reactive dogs, you may wish to use the main garden rather than the small front courtyard.
The cottage does have a cottage on the other side and fencing which takes in the rear of next door’s property, but it is a very small portion of the rear garden and the fencing is 6 feet high. The walk to the beach is 5-10 mins depending on which entry you choose – note that as its a beach location there will be other people and dogs accessing it on higher occasions during peak times. Whilst there are other houses to either side and to the rear of the property, we can hardly say it is overlooked given the height of the walls.
The parking area is not separate from the garden. Whilst the garden and outside area is totally secure, you may wish to ensure that dogs are supervised / contained before moving cars in the driveway.
Location & Directions
2 Eden Hall Cottage, Bacton, Norfolk NR12 0LN
From the A149 Stalham bypass take the turning signposted Happisburgh/Walcott/Bacton at the western end of the town (Stepping Stone Lane B1159). At the end of the lane, turn left at the junction and stay on the road (still the B1159) for approximately 5 miles you passing East Ruston, Walcott and then arrive in Bacton. The infant school is on your left hand side as you enter the village. Keep on this road until you see a signpost pointing to Mundesley (coastal road). Eden Hall Cottage is 2 houses after the Mundesley turn off (on the right hand side of the road just after the turn off).
The house was beautiful and absolutely full of anything you could wish for. The mattresses were really comfortable, something that was noted by all of our guests. The living area lended itself to a very sociable and memorable holiday, especially with the french doors opening out onto the garden. The nice little touches of the books in the living room, the Plum & Ashby toiletries and the doggy biscuits (which were wolfed down!) were all well received.
Your recommendations of pubs to visit etc were also excellent. My sisters 60th birthday celebrations at the Gunton Arms made happy memories for all the family. All in all a lovely holiday and definitely a place to return to.
We look forward to coming back again.
We had a great night in The Gunton Arms with steaks cooked in the open log fire. Lots of fab beachy walks at Wells and Holkham and Horsey gap. Thank you
We visited many friends in Norfolk and went to a lovely (midnight) well, actually late afternoon carol service at Stody Church with friends.
The beach gave us lovely family walks and we also went to see the seals at Horsey Gap. Amazing! A lovely easy to live in house, beautifully thought out, comfy beds, super clean and lovely products. Thank you.
We’ve been to some gorgeous beaches, our favourite was Wells. It’s an hours to drive but worth it! Breathtaking views! The seals at Horsey were just unbelievable, very emotional seeing all the pups. Holt is gorgeous and fabulous independent shops. The local coffee/cake shop have amazing cake!
We’ve had a totally indulgent stay, enjoyed your beautiful products and already put in an order.
Thank you – I love your interior style – Just my thing! Thank you for my birthday cake! Delicious!
