When you arrive


From the car parking area, walk around to the front of the barn and into the light and airy hallway (which spans most of the barn length.)    The large windows ensure there is plenty of light.   The whole barn benefits from under floor heating and hard flooring throughout (perfect for snoozing pooches).  The hallway has beautiful reclaimed tiles and exposed beams..

Turn left into the

Lounge  /  Dining Room

I love this room with the huge amount of space, high ceilings and fabulous wooden reclaimed beams.  There are two very large and comfortable sofas and whilst they are perfectly positioned for watching the 43 inch Smart TV.  They are also perfectly positioned for gazing out onto the lovely secure south-facing garden.  Nothing nicer than watching the world go by!   There is a cosy woodburner (and feature exposed chimney) and plenty of space to spread out.  There are wooden floors throughout this room.

To the rear of this room, there is a lovely dining table and chairs for formal dining (seating 6) 

 Go through the dining room door to the:

The outside space is a fully enclosed large grassed garden with garden furniture (picnic table and bench and a 3 seater rocking bench) and gas barbeque.
The garden is fully enclosed with a 6 feet solid fence on the front and right hand side.   On the left, it is hedged and meshed with stock fencing (and will help prevent escapes from smallest of dogs).  There is a fabulously handy dog shower in the garden too.

    Greenwood Barn is situated in a very quiet lane in a rural location with some passing traffic.  

    The garden is all at the front and side of the property and mainly grassed.  There is 6 feet solid fencing on two sides of the boundary and hedging and mesh on the other.  The lowest part of the boundary is the paddock gate which is approx 4 feet high and meshed for security.  There is a farm to the rear of the property which does house donkeys, pigs and cockerels .   They cannot be seen but dogs may hear them.  

    The cottage is surrounded by farm land.  To date, we have had no reports of bird scarers but we will keep an eye on this!

    4 dogs welcome and more by prior arrangement

    • There is level access from the main entrance to:
    – Lawn Area
    – Patio/picnic bench
    – Hall (leading to bedrooms, bathroom, lounge and kitchen)

      There are no steps at the property

          • The main bedroom is a double with ensuite bathroom
          • The third bedroom is a twin room with ensuite shower room and is not suitable for wheelchair access


        • .Bedrooms
          • All bedrooms have windows.
          • Bedrooms have ceiling lights, bedside lamps and natural daylight.
          • Please let us know if you would like us to move the bedroom furniture, to improve accessibility.
          Accessible bedroom 2/wetroom
          • The narrowest point in this room is between the bed and the wall just inside the door. This is 36.5”/93cm wide.
          • There are 2 accessible/available electrical sockets just inside the door. They are approx 50cm above floor level.
          • The wetroom is ensuite with a low-profile threshold and graded floor shower.
          • The wetroom has a fixed shower seat.
          • The shower has both an overhead shower head and an adjustable height/removable
          shower head. The controls are approx 1m above floor level.
          • The shower has handrails (see photos).
          • The toilet has a handrail and a drop-down grab rail (see photos). The seat is just over

          • The bedroom is set out to facilitate access, including wheelchair access, between the twin beds. There is unobstructed floor space of 51”/130cm between the beds. This could be increased by moving the bedside tables but it is not possible to provide enough space for wheelchair access to both sides of both beds and have sufficient turning space between the beds, hence the layout previously described.

          • The third bedroom door is 33”/83cm wide but there is insufficient space to manoeuvre a wheelchair between the twin beds and the door to the ensuite is only 25”/63cm wide, hence this room is not thought to be suitable for wheelchair access.

          • The drive has stones but you can pull up next to the patio, which leads directly to the entrance door.

          Main entrance
          • The main entrance has almost level access. There is a permanent slight ramp (in order to provide a threshold that is as level as possible.)

        • The top of the main oven is 46.5”/118cm above floor level and the controls are 60”/152cm above floor level.
        • Due to the height of the worktops/sink and oven, the kitchen may not be suitable for self-catering use by a wheelchair user.
        • The crockery is kept in eye level kitchen units but can be moved to base units on request.

        • There is level access from the entrance to the lounge. The lounge door is at least 33”/83cm wide.

        Getting around outside
        Lawn Area

        Perfect accommodation for dogs and anyone with mobility problems.  Safe garden and plenty of space in the kitchen and lounge.  15 mins to walk to Walcott Gap, lovely sandy beach which the dogs loved.  15 mins drive to Bacton Woods and Pigney Woods, both excellent for dogs with plenty of shade.  

        Waxham and Waxham Barns Cafe, a great little find for coffee and a light lunch.  Kingfisher Fish and Chips always good.  Sheringham 40 mins away, great walks, £6.50 to park the car all day and take a picnic.   Did not both with Holkham or Sandringham this year due to the heat.

        Waitrose is good at North Walsham and Tesco in Stalham, our only issue was flies due to the heat and a parasol would have been useful as the patio is a sun trap.

        One of the best equipped places we have stayed in Norfolk and would come back.  Great place

        We have had a lovely holiday here at Greenwood Barn.  Fabulous accommodation.  Clean, comfortable and very dog friendly.  Our dogs loved the garden and being able to move freely inside and out – they settled in almost immediately!  Although the weather has been rather windy, the garden provided a sheltered sun trap most days.  We visited Mundesley (great beach for children) Bacton Woods, (Well worth a walk).  Fish and Chips great from The Kingfisher fish bar!  Look out for the wonderful display from the bats at dusk!!

        A lovely week in this beautiful Cottage with its fab garden.  We have loved the peace and quiet at this cottage.  The location is perfect.  We have visited this area of Norfolk a few times and always have an enjoyable break here.

        We didn’t visit a lot of places this time, The dogs love the beach so we have mostly been to Cart Gap and Happisburgh, the Small Sticks Cafe is fab at Cart Gap, sandwiches, salad and cakes are amazing,  We also visited Bacton woods, lovely walks there kept the dogs on leads there as muddy in some areas.  We would love to come back here, hopefully very soon x

        A fabulous stay in a really great cottage.  Everything we needed.  Best of all, perfectly safe for the dogs,

        Bacton beach great for dogs, hardly any people, can do a long walk.  Went to Wells, really lovely, dogs allowed part of the beach and in the pine woods,

        Saw lots of seals at Horsey, walked from Horsey windpump to the bech and saw hundreds of them.  Visited Blicking Hall, lovely parkland but no dogs in garden area. 

        Best eating places, Watson’s Cafe at Bacton, great cakes and coffee, Wells Deli, good toasties.  Best of all Lighthouse Inn, great food, very welcoming to all 5⭐ all round  All of these are dog friendly.

        Lovely place to stay and perfect for our blind dog Layla, we could leave her to explore the house and gardens without having to worry about her.  Out for lunch everyday.  Our favourites for food were Watson’s and the Star Inn at Lessingham.  Of course we all had great fun on the brilliant beaches and loved exploring Bacton Woods too.  Even the weather was perfect and the sun shone to make it perfect week.  Would definitely return, even in the rain.
