Poets Corner

Mundesley, North Norfolk

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 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.   The area is also 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.

Our third stay in Poets Corner, and as good as ever, if not better, because this time it was for 2 weeks.  The cottage is as lovely as ever and the garden is like heaven for the doggies – they’ll miss it when we’re back home.  We can’t fault Gail and her team for their efforts and super quick resolution when we had issues with the hot water.  Mundesley beach is fabulous – we highly recommend going right – when you go down the slope and walking towards Bacton, where you’ll find the beach is much quieter than the main part.
If you’re lucky enough to be here when Bertie’s Woodfired Pizzas are in the shoppers car park then do take advantage – some of the nicest pizza we have ever hard!  Find them on Facebook to check when they’re here.
The Mundesley Cheesecake Company provided a great afternoon tea for us and the cheesecake was exceptionally good.  Wendy is really helpful and has now taken over the Village Cafe so that’s worth a visit.
A fabulous stay again.  Can’t wait to be back again next year.

When you arrive

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 5 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.

Reactive Friendly Award Details

3 Star⭐⭐⭐

Poets Corner is a 3 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.  Poets Corner is situated centrally in  Mundesley village but on arrival, you will see it is not overlooked and a very very good option for reactive dogs.   There is a parking area which has a paddock gate, which, when shut, should deter most dogs from trying to exit to the quiet side road entrance (Russell Terrace).  The rear garden is both very secure and large with lots of grass.  The solid fencing surrounding the rear garden is between 5.5 and 6.5 feet all the way around and whilst there are houses on the other side, due to the size of the garden, height of the fencing and the protection of trees and bushes, it is not overlooked.   

The rear garden is accessed via the kitchen, day room door and ensuite bedroom door.   Dogs can be supervised via all of these rooms and the living room too.

There are some nice walks nearby and a 10 min walk through the main street to the beach.  So whilst you may see other people and dog walkers on the way to a beach if you feel this is an issue, please talk to Gail for alternative routes.

There are no passers by at Poets at all and no farmland or bird scarers in hearing.

Our experience at Poets Corner was wonderful – thoroughly recommend a stay here.  They have thought of everything.  Very clean, very comfortable.  We ate at The Ship Inn and the Corner Cafe – the food and people were excellent.  Sadly the weather was not the best for this time of year, but that didn’t stop us getting out and about.  Went to Cromer, a lovely busy area.
Beaches in Mundesley are lovely.  In all we loved our stay here and would come here again.  Hoping the sun comes too!
Thank you

The house and location are wonderful.  If a good judge is if we would return, then the answer is confidently Yes!  Well equipped, with lovely features.  Garden is huge and dog friendly in fact the whole house is equipped and makes for very happy hounds.  Mundesley is a lovely village with just the right amount of facilities for us.  Crazy Golf was fab!  There are three of us, my husband, me and teenage daughter and of course our beagles, Watson and Flynn who say ‘woof’.  We didn’t venture that far, but walked on the beach at least once every day.  We had breakfast in the cafe next to the crazy golf.  The local shop and Tesco Express covered most of our needs and Sainsbury in North Walsham, the remainder.  Back at the house, it only exceeded our expectations which were high having previously stayed in a Pack Holiday property.

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.

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.

Thank you for our amazing holiday

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.

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.

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!!

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!

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.

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

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

Poets Corner, Mundesley

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

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

Poets Corner, Mundesley

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!

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!

Thank you

Poets Corner, Mundesley

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!

Thank you

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!!!!!

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!
