A truly characterful dog friendly cottageĀ  on the
North East Norfolk coast.

A very warm and friendly welcome awaits you here at Church View Cottage.  Church View Cottage is owned and run by us, Paula, Peter and Weasel (our friendly labradoodle.)

We have been running Church View Cottage for nine years. With Weasel we love enjoying the fabulous Norfolk coastline, wonderful Norfolk villages, the Norfolk Broads and plenty of local woods.

We enjoy taking Weasel out to explore all the dog friendly  pubs, cafe's and attractions.

Norfolk is such a fabulous county to explore and it is so dog friendly too. You and your dogs will have a fabulous time. We have guests returning time and time again and each time they visit somewhere new! 

Our cottage sleeps up to 4 people depending on the number of dogs that are staying and is a very comfortable, spacious and attractive ground floor cottage adjoined to our old brick and flint cottage.
