We booked The Coach House for our honeymoon and wanted a romantic hide-away, peace and quiet. This has been perfect. The bedroom at the top is beautiful, so quiet you wouldn’t even believe how close the town is.

Bacton Woods for lovely walks with lots of nature to watch – we spotted Jays (and lots of other birds) , squirrels, rabbits + roe dear.

Simon is very welcoming + lovely and we were lucky to be here at the right time to see the fabulous Iris garden in full bloom. We like to see new places, so rarely return-however we enjoyed it here so much. I can imagine we may come back here!

Reactive Friendly Awards Details

2 Star ⭐⭐

The Coach House 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.

The Coach House has a small strip of patio in front of the living room exit doors.  This section is secure to a degree of 6 feet (meshed and hedged along the main portion) and a 5 feet exit gate.

There is a rear garden (walled and fenced to lowest height of 5 feet).  The rear courtyard garden overlooks the owners garden (the owners have a dog of their own) so you may see / hear Percy on his travels in his own garden.  The rear garden can’t be seen from the rest of the house.

Cars can be parked outside the front of The Coach House (no fencing), but dogs are secure when inside the front patio area.

Note that the owners do use the walkway in front of The Coach House to access their own area and garden so you may see passers by in front of the living room window and passing the rear garden.

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.

As always a fantastic stay.  We can always rely on having no worries coming to any of the Pack Holidays cottages.  Reliable, comfortable, clean.  Lovely treats for humans and dogs.  Good communication with Gail.

Because of covid we couldn’t come last year but are already looking forward to returning next year, and coming for our main holidays later this year.

All your needs and comforts are hear.

The Coach House didn’t disappoint and provided everything we needed for a short stay here.  A very well thought out accomodation.

And as for our dogs…..! Well, they had everything they needed!  Thank you so much for all the doggie treats, extra towels, throws – there was everything they needed.

A lovely break – will definitely come back!!

Horsey beach was just fantastic, very unspoilt, lots of seals who seemed very curious to see our dogs. 
Marshgate road, handy field nearby for morning dog walks.  Three Cottages Chip Shop excellent quality, can’t recommend it highly enough, five stars! 
Dunes Cafe between Horsey and Sea Palling is a very nice loads off, huge cakes at reasonable price and friendly staff, decent cuppa. 
Pigney Woods is a lovely dog walk, woods and meadows, bench seating for a rest
Norfolk Motorcycle Museum is a must if you are at all interested in motorcycles like us.  More of a living workshop than a museum, brilliant!   
Trip to Cromer in the rain, seems quite a nice bustling little town with attractive buildings and shops, but weather drove us back early. 
The beach at Sea Palling isnt the prettiest but huge and we had a bracing walk with a useful cluster of shops and cafes at the entrance to the beach. 
Great week in Norfolk

We have really enjoyed our stay in North Walsham and the Coach House was not only comfortable but in a good spot to visit other area’s along this beautiful coast.

We have been blessed with perfect weather all week so have spent a few hours on the beaches and in beer gardens!!

We loved The Ship Inn, Mundesley, and The Recruiting Sergeant, Horstead.  The food at both places also very very nice.

Beaches – Sea Palling / Horsey (for seals) / Mundesley / Cromer (although a lot busier!!)

We have had a lovely relaxing week here, can how say we have stayed at all the Marshgate properties and they are all lovely in different ways.
Weather has been very warm and we couldn’t do as much as we would have liked as it was too hot for Fillon.  We did visit Bacton and Pigney woods, Bacton beach and Cart Gap.  Went to Winterton but couldn’t even get parked.
Had Great Fish & Chips from Three Cottages Chippy next to Sainsburys, Bluebell serves lovely food, it was nice to sit outside.  Also White Swan in town very dog friendly. Recommend Sugar and Spice Cafe in Bacton.
Thanks Gail and Felicity for their help in sorting the bed confusion.

Had a wonderful week here.  Weather wasn’t great but enjoyed the beach walks  – Favourites were Winterton on Sea, Trimingham beach and Wells Next The Sea.  Loved Cromer – the Wellington pub was great for food and drinks.  The best meals we had was at the Recruiting Sergeant.  Dog friendly and amazing food.  And the Globe in Wells. Found The Coach House very cosy and quiet and ideal location for touring around.

We have really enjoyed our stay here at The Coach House.  We have  had everything we needed and the accommodation is incredibly comfortable, clean and modern.  The Welcome Pack for humans and dogs was a lovely touch.  This has been a fabulous holiday and we will definitely be back to the area to do some more.  Unfortunately, Pippa our dog, isn’t fully fit after a recent leg operation. so we’ve not been able to walk / explore as much as we would have liked, but we have had a brilliant time, nonetheless.  The ‘village’ of North Walsham is a 10 mion walk and a lovely way to spend a few hours ‘mooching’.  We’ve really enjoyed the beaches but especially the one at Walcott, empty of people and free parking if you time it right, adjoining the beach.  We saw the seals, for free at Horsey beach and then went on an organised trip with Temple Seal Trips from Morston Quay – such a treat!
Thank you Pack Holidays – Gail – brilliant having a human dealing with our booking!
We’ve had a great time, in a superb area, in superb accommodation at a superb price.
*  Mundesley beach is stunning but we didn’t visit due to Pippa’s leg.  However, we did look at it from ‘The Ships’ beer garden!  The food at The Ship was superb – would highly recommend it, but make sure you take cash, just in case their internet isnt working for card payments.

Had a much needed break.  Can highly recommend the beach at Cart Gap and cafe there and fab gluten free fish and chips at The Lighthouse Inn.  Thank you  


The Coach House, Marshgate, North Walsham

Beautiful place, perfect for relaxing, watching the birds — dogs loved it as did we.  ‘We will be back!’
Just a tip if you have dogs that chase, the Muntjac deer are everywhere with their tiny babies.  We kept ours close in Bacton Woods

The Coach House, Marshgate, North Walsham

Short rearranged getaway (thanks to Covid!) but worked really well.
Our third time at Marshgate and we have tried all three cottages.  The cottage itself is perfect but the back garden is not ideal as our three like to mooch about too much!
Loved the welcome package – the cookies were amazing and we bought more at the butchers!  The dogs loved the biccys. We walked at Bacton beach, Bacton woods and all around North Walsham,  Lucky with the weather – just a shame it wasn’t warm enough to sit in the garden.  A visit to Norfolk Alpacas is a must for adults and children!  Just around the corner and a good couple of hours fun.  See you again in October.

We’ve had a great 4 nights in The Coach Hoouse.  What a find.  So pleased to find somewhere that is truly dog friendly and dog secure as well as being VERY nice!
Such a good base to explore – Mundesley, Horsey, Cart Gap, Happisburgh, Cromer, Blicking and a good walk along Weavers Way in North Walsham.  
The seals at Horsey are quite a sight to see
Hope to be back again soon
Thank you

Had a fabulous week stay here in North Walsham.  The Coach House was a great base for exploring the coast and local areas.  The seals at Horsey were SPECTACULAR and the Dunes cafe nearby a treat.  The Recruiting Seargeant in Coltishall was great food.  We could not have asked for more of our accomodation – sad to leave.

We have very much enjoyed our stay in the very well equipped Coach House and have felt completely at home here.

Our favourite day out was seeing the seals at Horsey beach/Gap. An amazing sight. Watching the variety of boats on the Broads and a lovely walk on Happisburgh beach. Thank you Gail at Pack Holidays for all your help and to Simon for the warm welcome. I am sure we will return!

Fantastic time in this lovely cottage + the surrounding areas. Cottage is well equipped for a very comfortable weeks stay.

-Bacton woods was perfect to take the dogs for a long walk whilst avoiding the bearing sun, Happisburgh was a lovely beach/cliff walk where they could also play in the sea to their hearts content. Cromer, for us, was too buys + hectic to enjoy. Hiring a boat at Wroxham for a few hours and sailing to Horning was great fun and nice stop for lunch. (Richardson boat hire was very reasonably priced and dog friendly).

Eat + Drink: Banningham Crown – Lovely food – very dog friendly, Oasis 2 – good indian restaurant – not too far to drive, Jade Garden – nice Chinese takeaway – very convenient, Bluebell pub – just down the road – dogs allowed in garden, food expensive vs quality, White Swan pub – very, very dog friendly but very much a “local” pub. We watched 2 England matches there and was probably never more than 15 people in, which was ideal with two dogs in tow!

Loved this break away for the family. We only stayed for 3 nights but packed in a lot. First went to Happisburgh beach. Dogs loved it and had a good stretch of their legs, we tried to go to the Star inn (recommended in guest information) but it was closed (Monday). Next day we went to Bacton woods which was amazing and then a trip to Bewilderwood which was also good fun. We tried again at the Star and was a very very enjoyable meal. Last day saw us going to Cromer and then relaxing in the cottage and pizza for tea. A very nice place and I personally loved the fig tree in the courtyard even if we were a few weeks early.

What an absolutely fabulous place to stay, the cottage has everything you need to have a lovely time away and is superb both inside and out! Really loved the layout of the staircase and the double room, the beds were super comfy and made mornings lots harder but suppose that doesn’t matter when you are here to chill, the sofa and chairs also got a 10/10 from Ozzy as he spent most of his time on them snoozing after a long day! This is now the second time I have been on holiday to Norfolk, both of which have been thanks to Gail and Pack Holidays, and it definitely wont be the last time either! The area is so peaceful and really is a lovely place to be. We recommend the village Chinese and Indian takeaway, food there is 10/10 (menus are on the noticeboard just outside the kitchen!). During our short stay we paid a visit to Cromer, Sheringham, Overtstrand and my favourite beach, Mundesley. It was lovely if the weather was bitterly cold. Thank you for the lovely treats which were left on the table ready for our arrival, especially the prosecco which went down a treat (but didn’t last very long!). Once again the handmade dog treats when given to the pooch were gone in seconds but I had to save some for the dogs at home! If we plan on coming to Norfolk again for the weekend then we would definitely consider booking the Coach House! Thank you to Simon and Felicity for allowing us to stay in this truly superb place and thank you again to Gail for the 5* service that you always provide! Gutted to be going home but we cannot wait to come back!

WE LOVE IT HERE! We have had another lovely time here at The Coach House. The weather has been very kind (mostly)! We have spent our mornings roaming around Bacton Woods with the pooches seeing deer every time we went. In the afternoons we have spent our time walking on the beach, well on the flood defences as palm oil has been washed up on the shores. We stayed safe up there and still had a really fab time but it wasn’t an issue as Ellie loves the woods but isn’t keen on the sea so we didn’t mind not getting too close! As always our week was gone far too quickly and we are already planning on our next visit. We will work on keeping the dogs quieter time, thank you once again!

What a lovely accommodation, we all had a wonderful time. The beaches are so accessible from this cottage and they’re stunning at this time of year! Even though the weather wasn’t amazing we still had a wonderful time and will definitely be booking for next year!!

Thanks for a wonderful welcome, and a super stay at the lovely Coach House. Was a shame that the weather was against us but we didn’t stop what we wanted to do! Thank you so much sending some big hugs from us and the pooches!

We had a wonderful stay in this very well equipped cottage. We were very very comfortable and had some lovely walks, thank you ever so much!!

We have just returned from a peaceful week at the Coach House, Marshgate in North Walsham. We loved our stay – 2 adults and our 4 dogs (yes 4 – we were delighted to find a property willing to take this number of dogs). The cottage was a really lovely tasteful conversion, clean and had everything we needed. The dogs loved both the homemade dog biscuits they received on arrival and having their own secure garden.
Simon the owner was friendly and very helpful but did not pester us at all.
Sheringham Woods and Blicking Hall both excellent for dog walking with a buggy (one of our pack has bad legs so travels in style with his own ‘wheels’).
Thank you Gail, Pack Holidays and Simon, highly recommended.
D Clarkson

The Coach House, Marshgate, North Walsham

Lovely short break, very comfortable accommodation and helpful Simon on the doorstep. Cart Gap beach was a favourite as was Truly Local shop in Stalham. Did not eat out having 3 dogs with us but the kitchen was amply equipped for cooking up goodness!
