Poets CornerMundesley, 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.

Reactive Friendly Award Details
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.

After passing through Walcott, take the next right turn (signposted Bacton and Mundlesley and still the B1159).

On turning into Russell Terrace, Poets Corner is the second house on your right hand side.
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.
To all the Pack Holidays team. Once again, many thanks for making our stay so pleasurable. Always feels like a home from home. My team absolutely love it!! (especially the doggie treats!)
Everywhere is dog friendly and there are lovely National trust places nearby.
Thank you for our amazing holiday
Just cant wait to return!!
Bacton woods have great walks for the dogs, followed by sugar and spice cafe at Bacton, great cakes! Loved staying at Poets Corner, garden great for the dogs, they didn’t want to come in most of the time! will be back! Thanks for a great stay.
Thanks Gail for a great relaxing week.
I am sure we will be back next year.
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
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!!
