Brian’s Cottage is a 1930’s single storey property deep in the Norfolk countryside, surrounded by arable fields with stunning views up to the church and bordering the Broads National Park. The garden is south-west facing with year round glorious sunsets. A private gate from the end of the garden leads to a myriad of footpaths with the popular Weaver’s Way a short distance away. The cottage sleeps four + infant in two bedrooms, a king size and two singles. Due to the secluded nature, Brian’s Cottage has always been popular with reactive dogs of all breeds and their owners. We are able to accept XL bully and type breeds. The fences and gates are all two metres high and although you can enjoy the views to the rear, the planted garden means that your sighthounds can’t. There’s storage for bicycles, canoes or paddle boards. A large gas barbecue is provided in the summer months along with comfortable sun loungers and a swing seat. For the dogs, a sun bed and paddling pools, an outside warm shower with a trough bath for smaller dogs to ease your back. Crates of various sizes, an Innopet dog buggy, a Petsafe ramp and sofa steps are all provided as needed. We accept between four and ten dogs depending on their size absolutely free and can dog sit by prior arrangement also at no charge. The cottage is ten minutes from the nearest beaches and also Bacton Woods. The nearest supermarkets are also ten minutes away at North Walsham or Stalham. The nearest pub The Butcher’s Arms is 0.8 miles away.

We have now stayed at Brians Cottage twice now. Tim and Liz are brilliant at what they do and their attention to detail is second to none. We have no hesitation in recommending them and Brians Cottage!

N Edwards, October 2023

Our dog enjoys the holiday as much as we do.

Judith, May 2023

Just had a lovely week at Brian cottage this is the best dog friendly cottage we have ever stayed in. Liz and Tim the owners are lovely and are on hand to help if you need it. The cottage is cosy spotlessly clean and welcoming, the beds are so comfortable. Liz made us home made bread and brownies and a beautiful tasty fruit cake. Also added bonus was having our meal cooked for us the first night, was absolutely delicious. Homemade jam and marmalade. My husband is in a wheel chair and we manage quite well so I would also say it’s accessible for a chair as well. The dogs loved it you dont need to bring anything all provided from dog beds, crates, bowls, leads, cool mats, loads of homemade treats. Hot shower outside to wash your dogs and microfibre towels to dry them. The views are amazing and the fields for the dogs are adjacent to the cottage from a gate in the garden. Lovely walks from the cottage and only small drive to beaches. We would definitely recommend I have booked again for next year.
