Comfortably sleeping up to six humans and their canine companions, all guests will appreciate two gardens and generous internal spaces. Whether you plan to use the cottage as a base for wider exploration or to stay local, this cosy, homely and hardy cottage will serve you well. Redgrave is in a beautiful rural area on the Norfolk/Suffolk border – perfectly located to enjoy the very best each county has to offer before returning to rest, luxuriate and recuperate.
Renovated with a love of the outdoors (and muddy paws) in mind, this old cottage has a shoe, coat and boot area by the front door. Oiled brick floors run throughout the open plan kitchen and dining hall, with quarry tiles in the library and wood flooring everywhere else.
Canine amenities and supplies are provided as standard and include treats, bowls, towels, holiday dog tags, poo bags and even tennis balls. Your whole pack can relax and enjoy your holiday. As detailed on the Explore page, there are many dog friendly places to visit including nature reserves, forests, beaches, open countryside walks and the Royal Park at Sandringham.
Two sets of double doors open onto the patio dining area at the back of the cottage. Within this private well fenced space is a small lawn, a deck with gas BBQ and seating area. Through a side gate is another enclosed lawned area surrounded by hedging with bench seating. Enough outdoor space to enjoy warm summer evenings and the vast dark starry skies. Beyond the full height garden gates are an infinite number of rural adventures that will delight your dogs. On your return, the enormous and remarkable dog bath with hot and cold mixer tap makes the canine cleaning experience altogether more enjoyable for both Hound and Human.
The lounge and library share a double sided wood burner so there is ample room beside or around the fire (be advised though that many a tired dog has quickly claimed and refused to relinquish the best spot). There are two sofas, leather beanbags, a desk, board games, puzzles, playing cards, a smart TV and books to read.
Upstairs are three double bedrooms. The master ensuite has a large double ended bath that is the perfect place to enjoy a hot soak by candlelight after a long day in the great outdoors before falling in to the luxurious super king bed.
Several dog beds are provided, but you may find that your hound quite enjoys laying on the brick and tile floors which are cool in summer and the underfloor heating makes them super cosy in winter. If your dog usually sleeps on the bed at home, then they are welcome to sleep on the bed here too. All soft furnishings are leather or fully washable fabric. You can wipe walls clean with a damp cloth if you have a mud splatter moment. Your dogs are as welcome as you are in all indoor living and bedroom spaces.
This is an old cottage and there are many steps (including all entrances to the property), raised door thresholds, restricted headroom and the ground/floors are uneven in places. The property is not suitable for children aged 11 or under. Older children or adults with mobility difficulties should read the descriptions carefully and consider that all bedrooms are upstairs. Exact location provided after booking.

We just enjoyed the perfect doggy holiday! Of my two rescue dogs, one is particularly anxious and he can struggle to settle into unfamiliar environments, but he was very relaxed for the whole week which in turn helped us relax. Friends joined us with their dog and the holiday was even more special as all three dogs enjoyed staying together and the incredible walks nearby. I thought we might have to make sacrifices on the standard of the accommodation in a dog welcoming cottage, but the opposite was true. The pictures don’t show how spectacular the cottage is - the layout is just brilliant and everything is finished to such a lovely standard. It is beautiful and has features that are a huge surprise... just divine. I can't imagine finding a dog friendly holiday cottage that would trump this one. We humans played games and puzzles by the fire, whilst our best friends played and relaxed together.
