Reactive Friendly Awards Details
Stable Cottage is situated in a residential but quiet area of North Walsham market town. All the cottages are off the residential road and contained in the grounds of Marshgate House. Once inside, you cannot see the residential road.
Stable Cottage has a cottage garden (non grassed, cobbled) which is secured by a 5 feet wall one side (with entry gate)., a 5 feet wall (with fencing above) on the facing side the the cottage and on the third side (left hand side of exiting the cottage) a 3.5 feet picket fence (at lowest point). This fenced section leads to the owners garden which is also secured by a 6 feet wall all around (including a closed exit gate) so if access was gained to this area, dogs are still secure.
The exit gate from Stable Cottage leads to a shared (with The Dairy) outer parking courtyard. The outer courtyard is totally secure, with 9 feet locked gates leading to the road outside.
The cottage garden is accessed directly from the open plan kitchen / dining / living room doors and dogs can be supervised/seen from all the downstairs windows in Stable Cottage.
The wall shared with The Dairy has a courtyard garden on the other side and this means that you may hear dogs in the adjoining property on occasion. Please bear this in mind if you have a noise reactive dog.
There is a quiet field walk to the side of the properties but note you may meet the occasional other dog walker. We have had no reports of bird scarers in this location but as it is residential you may hear other dogs bark on occasion.
There are no passers by as the unit is self contained and cannot be seen.
Parking is in the shared outer courtyard (shared with The Dairy) and once the outer 9 feet gates are closed, it is totally secure.

From the A1151 from Norwich, turn left onto the A149 signposted to Cromer and North Walsham. Follow this road for 5 miles until you arrive at North Walsham. At the first set of traffic lights, turn right to go into North Walsham town. At the roundabout, take the second exit, (with Paston College on your left). At the next roundabout take the first exit (Roys on your left and Lidls on your right). Follow the road past the Post Office and Library (New Road) and at the next bend in the road, take the left turn into Pound Road. Follow this road going straight on at the crossroads (Manor Road school on your right hand side). After the crossroads, the road turns into Marshgate. Go over several speed bumps and after the road bends to the right, there is a right hand turn with a white cottage at teh corner. Take this right hand turn (which is still Marshgate). Stable Cottage is accessed through the very large black gates on the right hand side of the road attached to the black fronted Norfolk brick building. The gate is large and requires a handle to be turned to open, then the gate pushed to access the courtyard. If you have any concerns questions about this, please do not hesitate to contact us
This is our first holiday with our dog Harry: thank you for helping to make it a memorable one. We explored the local beaches, Harry particularly enjoyed Winterton and Sea Palling (had a doggie ice cream at Sea Palling too!) Bacton Woods was a favourite with us all and we recommend the walking trails / gardens at Felbrigg Hall (National Trust). We had drinks in the lovely garden at the Vernon Arms and enjoyed a gorgeous lunch at The Lighthouse Inn, Walcott. Thank you again for an enjoyable week. We look forward to booking another Pack Holiday soon
This is our first visit to Norfolk. We have loved this area so much that we have booked to return in September (before we left Stable Cottage). The cottage is beautiful and well furnished / maintained. The garden is the most beautiful, wildlife-friendly oasis. We have three very active Border Collies and they loved it!! Cottage owners Simon and Felicity are a wonderful pair of hosts
Another fab Pack Holiday 🙂 The most comfortable beds EVER!!! We’ve managed to wear all 4 dogs out after trips to Wells, Bacton Woods and Cromer. Looking forward to visiting again to enjoy this peaceful cottage and it’s beautiful garden with lots of bird life, listening to their morning chorus. Thanks for a great few days
Ross’s wildlife tours from Horsey Mill, – very entertaining, and enlightening. The Seals at Horsey beach – fabulous!! Hill Side Animal Sanctuary – a great visit if you love farm animals – excellent for kid’s of all ages! Sam’s Petshop – oh how I wish we had a petshop like this where I live – amazing stock for my 3 pampered princes!! Indian takeaway, “Labone” deliver!! They need postcode and number 24. The delivery guy is very friendly and helpful. Food is fab, tasty and very hot (temperature not spice)
Thank you we love it here!
