Some comments from our guest book
9.3 2020 Thank you all for another brilliant holiday at your lovely cottage. It's been a lovely relaxing break from all the madness going on around the world. We could walk on deserted beaches for miles and come back to a warm and cosy cottage to have a glass of wine by the fire. It was lovely to stay a little longer this time, the only down side is want to go home even less than normal - it really feels like home! Thanks again and see you in November. Diane and Poppy x
3.2.2020 Annette and myself have had a great 4 days in this lovely, comfy cottage. We've walked every day and have seen some lovely beaches and sea along the way to Mundesley. We had a very tasty lunch at the Royal Hotel and highly recommend it. We have had varied weather but mostly sunny skies and little rain and it was a pleasure to come back to this lovely cottage to re-energise for the next day. Sad to go but we've got lovely memories to take back home! Patricia x
22.2.2020 Fabulous time as ever. The alterations are great, bedroom even cosier. Took the girls to the beach and the woods but mainly chilled out. Thanks Paula, Peter and Weasel for making this place so special. Sheila, Tony , Lola and Ellie
15.2.2020 Fantastic stay, thanks for all your hospitality and advice. Lovely cottage in a great location. The seals at Horsey were our highlight! Mad good use of the log burner on the cold windy nights. All in all a great holiday. Ian, Debbie and Jamie
10.2.2020 A spacious, well furnished cottage in a quiet location. The cottage was spotless , has a large very secure garden which Lola loved. Thank you Paula and Pet for a lovely break, See you both in June.
5.1 2020 We have had numerous holidays at Church View Cottage but this has been our first winter break. As always we were welcomed with big smiles, yummy cakes, biscuits for the dogs and several other goodies. Our short break has been so relaxing and coming back to the warm and cosy cottage after a bracing walk on the beaches has been delightful. We got to use the log burner big time this holiday and it is simply mesmerising gazing in to the flames whilst sipping on a glass of prosecco....bliss! Oh, if only we could stay here forever!! Alas, our time to leave has come all too quickly but we will be back to test out the new revamped look. Thank you so much Paula and Peter for your wonderful, never ceasing hospitality and considerate thought for your guests. We hope 2020 is a brilliant year for you. All our love, Gill, George, Merryn and Raymond.
Twixmas Our first visit to Church View Cottage and it won't be our last! Paula, Peter and Weasel made us feel very welcome. The weather was kind to us, staying dry, even with a glimpse of the sun! We had lovely walks on Happisburgh beach, Cart Gap and Bacton Woods. We also visited Horsey beach to see the seals- a lovely experience and not too busy. We had dinner at The |Lighthouse Inn one evening and was made to feel very welcome, even with our dog Rosie. We are off to the Star Inn tonight, New Year's Eve for dinner! The cottage is lovely and cosy, with everything you need. Great enclosed garden for the dog, beautiful clear skies, so you can see the stars without any light pollution. Looks lovely with the thoughtful decorations. We thoroughly enjoyed our welcome hamper too! Thank you so much! Love Lisa, Pam and Rosie. xxx
Christmas 2019 Thank you both for making Christmas such a wonderful time. Christmas day was a bright sunny day and Bailee had a great time playing with the other dogs on the beach. The cottage was great. Many thanks for the Christmas decorations. See you again in the near future. Frank, Barbara and Bailee.
16.11.2019 This was our fifth holiday in Church View Cottage but our first time staying here in the winter. The weather has been very kind to us and we had an absolutely fantastic week! We have been on long beach walks every single day. My fit bit is showing 105,000 steps and 42 miles!Our beach walks included Wells Next The Sea, Walcott, Cart Gap, Happisburgh and Winterton on Sea where we saw the seals. It has been lovely to come back to the cottage in the evenings to get cosy by the fire with a glass of wine..... Thank you so much for the super welcome basket of goodies, the boys especially enjoyed their cheesy biscuits. Hope to see you next year.... Alison. Jon, Bertie and Jack.
2.11.2019 We have had a lovely week although the weather has been a bit rough at times. Dogs have enjoyed their walks on various beaches and we have enjoyed meals at local pubs in Lessingham and the White Horse at Brancaster Staithe courtesy of Norfolk Restaurant Week- great idea! Cottage very comfortable and welcoming. Many thanks to Paula ans Peter for help and advice. Greatest bonus has been the quiet which has saved our collies sanity away from the fireworks! Hope to be back sometime. Love from Emma, Doris Taz, Pepper and Merit.
27.10.2019 Oh Weasel it's not looking good- mum is packing things in bags and saying it's tie to go home! I've seen it before - it doesn't matter how much I sit and sulk in the chair we still have to leave. We have both been so happy here this week. We've had lots of sunny walks on beautiful beaches and so many friendly dogs to speak to. My first visit to How Hill to walk by the river and the Autumn colours in the secret garden were beautiful. My favourite day was my play date with Weasel at Winterton, a run on that lovely sandy beach and then a tasty sausage roll in Poppy's Cafe (very well named I thought!) The perfect day to every day was coming back to our lovely homely cottage to one of Paula's home made dog biscuits ( mum enjoyed the cakes too) and the restful sleep in front of the wood burner. So tell me how can going back to work be better than all that, I just don't understand! My only consolation is that mum tells me we are coming back in a few months time. So I look forward to seeing you again then, Weasel, Paula and Peter. Thanks for a brilliant week. Poppy and Diane xx
26.10.2019 Thank you Paula, Peter and Weasel for our 10th fabulous holiday. The cottage with its recent improvements is even better if that's possible. After circumstances keeping us away for 12 months we did wonder that we were wearing rose - tinted glasses, but we have to say it's better than we remembered. Thanks once again for your brilliant hospitality and we look forward to seeing you again very soon. Lots of love Sheila, Tony, Ellie and Lola xx
19.10.2019 Thank you Paula, Pete and Weasel for another great week at Church View Cottage, the cottage was immaculate as usual and although the weather wasn't great we had a great time searching around the antique shops, walking on the beach and for the first time visiting another side of Norfolk we're not used to seeing Great Yarmouth. We had some lovely meals out meaning no cooking at night for me, a great break. Looking forward to our next visit. Thanks again Chris, Cheryl and Plum
12.10.2019 Another great week here, our fourth year and still loving every minute. The basket of goodies went down well for us as well as the dogs. Have had some lovely walks on the beaches. Rueben and Teasha have enjoyed every minute, two happy dogs. We have had a lovely relaxing week but it has gone too quickly. Looking forward to coming back again next October. Thanks again Lots of love Sue, Sarah, Reuben and Teasha xx
5.10.2019 Thank you Paula, Pete and Weasel. This was our second visit to Church View Cottage this time our new addition George came too. Our visit was every bit as enjoyable as the first. Lots and lots of off lead walks on un spoilt beaches. We went to Pigneys Wood and Sheringham Wood this time as well - wonderful. Nobby, Marley and George loved playing with Weasel in the garden. The boys have run their legs off and slept every evening in the cosy lounge- can't beat it. Norfolk is such a dog friendly place we hope to be back in 2020. Sue, Derek, Nobby, Marley and George.
28.8.2019 Another lovely week here, cannot fault the cottage or Pete and Paula, who give their all to accommodate guests. Have really appreciated the woodburner on a few occasions. Enjoyed walking the coastal path from Cart Gap to Happisburgh for the first time. Walcott beach is amazing now it has been sandscaped. The dogs have had a great time, we will be taking 2 very tired cocker spaniels home! Great meals as ever at the Wayford Bridge, Lighthouse Inn and the Star at Lessingham. Thank you so much for having us. see you in April 2020. Jenny, Jules, Teddy and Angus.
21.9.2019 Once again, big, big thank you to Paula and Peter for making Church View such a great place to come and stay...... so comfortable and cosy. A week in Norfolk is like the best therapy.... feel so relaxed, just don't want to go home. Norfolk is a great place to unwind in, made even better by the fact that everywhere is dog friendly. Our houndies have had a great time..... Will be back again next September for our 6th visit. Martin, Jeanette, Finn and Isla.
14.9.2019 Thank you Paula, Peter and Weasel for such a lovely welcome and the amazing treats for both humans and dogs. This is our second visit to Church View Cottage. We have been very lucky with the weather. The dogs have loved the beaches. We went to Happisburgh, Bacton, where the sandscaping scheme has just been completed and Winterton on Sea with the fantastic Dunes Cafe with it's " Dog Houses". We also visited Poppy's cafe in Winterton. It is a lovely quaint old fashioned cafe and served lovely cakes. We visited Sheringham park and Felbrigg Hall. Both National Trust properties with lovely tea rooms. We had a trip to Horning and a very tasty lunch at The New Inn watching the boats go by. We also went to Horsey Windmill and to see the seals at Horsey. This has been a lovely relaxing week and has gone by much too quickly. Hope to be back again next year. Carole, John, Ellie and Snowy.
7.9.2019 Many thanks Paula, Peter and Weasel for making us so welcome at Church View Cottage for our 1st visit. We was met by the happy and friendly Paula and Weasel who made us feel at home, especially the lovely cakes and biscuits for the pups. The cottage is home from home and it was so nice that Daisy, Dylan and Dexter could play in the safety of the secure garden and enjoyed making a new friend with Weasel. We all had a great week exploring and eating our way round Norfolk! Had a lovely visit to Horning and a boat trip along the Broads on the Mississippi boat. The dogs loved all the attention. A nice stroll around the lovely town of Holt, Daisy, Dylan and Dexter got new toys from "Woofers and Barkers" Very posh dog boutique! Followed by a fantastic lunch at Rocky Bottoms and a coastal walk from the restaurant gardens. Took the Park and Ride to Norwich had a nice time here. Great fun was spent at the beaches and lovely brunch at Smallsticks. Great time had by all. Karen, Hazel, Diasy doddle, Dylan and Dexter.
30.8.2019 Had a great time at Church View Cottage. A Lovely welcome, very relaxing especially with our dogs. The cottage is so comfortable and well set out and the garden is just right for the dogs and us. Paula gave us so much information about the area which helped us choose the right beaches for our great walks with the dogs. The weather has been good, we have been so lucky. Would definitely recommend Church View Cottage to our friends and family at it is ideal and every time we went out we looked forward to getting back to the cottage. Thank you Paula, Peter and Weasel ( we have not got friendly dogs so they couldn't play) Jean, Helen, Saffy, Max, and Lily xxx
24.8.2019 This was my first holiday at Church View Cottage and what an amazing time I've had! A busy week from little walks at Cart Gap to getting caught in the rain at Sheringham park! had the best ice cream from the little ice cream van at Cart Gap. If you're interested in going for a little boat trip take a ride to Wroxham for a Broads Tour. Thank you to Paula, Pete and Weasel for a very warm welcome and a wonderful time. I'll be back don't worry! Love Lou xx
17.8.2019 We had an amazing holiday. We have climbed Happisburgh Lighthouse for the second time, amazing view.

27.7.2019 Thank you once again for your wonderful hospitality during our stay at your lovely, welcoming cottage. A lovely 21st birthday surprise on arrival for our son Nathan was truly appreciated and such a special and kind thought, along with all the goodies in the welcome pack. As you know, we absolutely love this little part of England and have visited frequently.Thankfully we have visited most of the sites before so haven't felt the need to charge out every day. It's been lovely to just relax in this current heatwave. This weeks consistently high temperatures in excess of 30 degrees has not been great fro the dog but we have thoroughly enjoyed our early morning and late evening walks along the beaches. Something new for us this week was a trip to the Rocket Pizza Van which is highly recommended. So thank you Paula,Peter and Weasel for another memorable week. You can sure we will be back ( For a 5th visit!) Gill, George, Nathan and Merryn.
20.7.2019 Lovely cottage - thank you - super bed. Everything here we needed. Hope we will come again soon. So much to see and do in the area. The garden for the dogs is a bonus and Weasel is so calm with all the visitors. Thanks see you again soon. Charlie, Gill , Vicki, Hamish and Skye.
13.7.2019 Had a lovely stay. Thanks to a last minute cancellation we were about to come early which has made is to so much more relaxing than just a week. Weather has been excellent, lots of time on the beaches. Dogs are currently staging a sit in- they know it's home time and they don't want to go! Thank you for the lovely welcome pack, the dogs absolutely loved their biscuits and we loved the homemade jam and cakes. Sad to go but will no doubt see you again before too long. Thank you both, Vicky, Tony, Gracie, Barney and Tilly. xxxx
16.6.2019 Our first visit to this part of Norfolk, we both loved it and so did the dogs. The weather was awful for June but we managed to get a good long walk each day without getting wet! We have spent time at Happisburgh, Bacton Woods, Horsey, Waxham and Winterton either walking on the beach or on the dunes. The food in this area is excellent and we have eaten in many beach cafes at lunchtimes and at the Star Inn and Hill House which is our favourite. Love Church View Cottage, cosy, well equipped and we have had excellent , friendly help from Paula and Peter when needed. Thank you for the delicious cakes, eggs and dog treats and for the fresh strawberries. Definitely a cottage to revisit soon and on to recommend to doggy friends. Janice, Denise, Storm, Aoife, Buddy and Bella xx
8.6.2019 We had a lovely holiday thank you- Jean and Gayle had a great time too. Punk is worn out but he had a great time on his various trips to the beach and his boat trip on the Broads. Thank for looking after us so well. Lorna, Gary and Punk.
1.6.2019 Wow! Don't want to go home, weather has got better as the week went on. Our second stay at Church View and better knowledge of the but still managed to get lost a few times!

25.5.2019 Another fab holiday here, which started with a warm welcome including yummy edibles enjoyed by us and Ollie our lovely lurcher. We had everything we needed and more at the cottage including very comfy beds, so we slept like logs! So many great places to explore nearby; beautiful dog friendly beaches for Ollie to race along and dabble his paws in the waves. Favourite beaches were Happisburgh, Horsey ( with fabulous Popplylands 1940's cafe for a great lunch) and Mundesley beach. retail therapy in the pretty Georgian town of Holt where Spout Hill is well worth a visit. Good meal out at Hill House Inn at Happisburgh. Once again, a lovely relaxing holiday, so we will be sad to go, but we will be back. Thank you for making our stay so much fun. Andrea, Dave and Ollie xx
18.5.2019 Thanks to Paula, Peter and of course Weasel, we have had another super week here at Church View. Weather has been lovely, not to hot for the dogs. lots of walks on the beaches and in Bacton woods. 1940's themed Poppylands is well worth a visit and the bubble and squeak is really nice. As usual all the treats left for us and the dogs went down very well. Thanks again to Paula, Peter who are so welcoming and friendly. We will return again. Lynne, Julie Alfie, Kissy and Topy xx
11.5.2019 Met by a smiling Paula who gave us a lovely welcome- though have to say our pooch Harry got the most attention! Had a lovely welcome basket with delicious homemade cakes, eggs, bread and jam. Paula then showed us around their lovely cottage and gave us information on best places to go - for Harry of course! Such a lovely dog friendly place. So lovely and clean with comfy bed and a large garden. just right for Harry! Then met Peter who was just as friendly as Paula and the icing on the cake was Harry met Weasel. Paula invited him into the garden and they had a lovely play together.

13.4.2019 Wow, just where did that week go! Was very relaxing but now we are at the end we are shattered! - Especially the dogs! lovely cottage, had everything, would have loved to have used the garden more - weather permitting. We all clocked up some miles every day visiting beaches, Pigney woods, Bacton woods and Weavers Way. We decided we are useless at following walking trails but had some fun making it all up as we went along. Thank you for our welcome goodies and card- such a personal touch. As you know Chris loved the fire! Shower was amazing for my aching body! See you again soon! Chris, Paula, Vinny and Lola
25.3.2019 Our few days with you was just great. A fabulous find! Our short stay in your fabulous accommodation was just a wonderful experience for us both Maggie and I ( Not forgetting Hattie and Ginnie) We were warm, cosy and extremely happy with just about everything.

25.2.2019 Just a few days here during ( who would have thought it) a February heat wave blue skies and endless sunshine.

Also on our behalf too - a welcoming and comfortable place to stay, a lovely garden , amazing light in the morning, very comfy beds......Everywhere we went, everywhere! dogs were more than welcome to the extent that it seemed a disadvantage not to have one with you when walking in to a pub, cafe or shop. Borrow one if you can! Thank you for making our stay here so enjoyable and for the delicious cakes that welcomed us. Sandra, Keith Bella and Charlie
20.2.2019 Thank you so very much for such a warm welcome.

Big thank you to Paula and Peter for making this a perfect place to stay. So very cosy and comfortable. You just don't want to go home! Norfolk in the winter is just as beautiful as it is in the summer and autumn.- although quite different. Very quiet, which is good for relaxing the mind. Lovely walks on deserted beaches- with exception of the seals. Great visit to Walsingham Abbey and Snowdrop Walk. Will be back in September. Jeanette and Martin Bass.

We visited Sea Palling, Cart Gap and Happisburgh beach to collect some stones to paint. We were very lucky to be able to climb Happisburgh Lighthouse which was amazing. We spent a day beach fishing and playing at West Runton with family. We hope to visit again next year. Helen, Dean, Connor and Maddie.
9.8.2018 What a fantastic holiday setting! We felt at home immediately due to all the personal and thoughtful touches in and around the cottage. The whole setting, with lovely garden were perfect for us and the dogs. We certainly enjoyed Cart Gap both first thing and for an evening stroll. Paula and Peter- what can I say- Perfect hosts. They made our stay a pleasure- thank you! We had a great week here = hope future guests enjoy it as much as we did! Andy, Diane, Jasper and Ralphie.
Just to reiterate what Diane and Andy have written. We have had a great and relaxing break. Enjoyed every minute , been very comfortable.You have been lovely hosts and have provided us with local advice. Keith, Joy and Geoff.
4.8.2018 Another lovely week, felt right at home as soon as we walked in again. Cottage is so spacious, ideal for our greyhounds and has everything you need. Lovely garden with much appreciated shade in this hot weather. The sea is so warm this year and crystal clear, the beaches are very clean. Sad to be going home but I think the next occupants don't really want squatters! Hope to see you next year, Vicky, Tony, Gracie and Barney ( Who tries hiding under the bed so we didn't have to go home!)
28.7.2018 Another great week ( 2nd visit). Weather was so hot, not good for the dogs. But we found lots of shady places. Fairhaven Water Gardens, as recommended by Paula was lovely, lots of shade and the staff even moved tables to get shade for the dogs. Mississippi boat trip at Horning well worth a visit. This cottage is just so nice, everything you need plus perfect garden. The thing that makes it special are the owners Paula ans Peter who go out of their way to help with everything. Thanks Lynne, Julie, Alfie, Kizzy and Topy.
21.7.2018 Lovely cottage with many quirky touches, for example toilet seat mirror in bathroom. Beds are very comfy. Enjoyed seeing places of interest on North Norfolk. Glorious weather helped to make it such a wonderful week. Paula and Peter provided everything we could wish for to enable us to have a wonderful holiday and we would recommend the cottage to anyone with or without dogs. Peter and Hilda.
7.7.2018 This was our fourth stay here and we have enjoyed another perfect week..... We have visited our favourite places including Felbrig, Winterton on Sea and the superb local beaches. Cart Gap beach for a sunset walk with the dogs was stunning! We visited Holt Country park for the first time which was lovely and shady for the dogs as we have all struggled with the heat this week. We didn't manage to find any seals on the beach this year but there were plenty bobbing around in the sea at Horsey Gap. At the end of such a fantastic week we are very reluctant to go home but we will definitely be back. Thank you Paula, Peter and Weasel for being so welcoming and for the excellent welcome basket. Alison, Jon, Bertie and Jack.
15.6.2018 What a lovely holiday we have had in a very relaxed and dog friendly setting. Lovely cottage, with everything we needs and delicious home baked goodies. Paula, Peter and Weasel were lovely, welcoming hosts. Lots of lovely beaches on our doorstep, including Waxham Sea Palling and Cart Gap. Ollie loved playing on the sand and dipping his paws in the sea. Great shopping in quirky, arty and independent shops in Holt whilst the other half enjoyed a lovely walk around scenic Spout Hill with Ollie. Enjoyed a tasty fish dinner at The Lighthouse Inn. Sat in the massive dog friendly beer garden. Fab break, we definitely hope to return. Andrea, Dave and Ollie
9.6.2018 Our second holiday at Church View Cottage. Our labradoodle Ruby was sooo excited when we turned in the drive and she realised we were back here. All three dogs settled down straight away.

Hope to see you all again soon. Many thanks Paula, Craig and Coco.
26.5.2018 A wonderful relaxing week at Church View Cottage, welcomed by Paula, Peter and Weasel, with lemon drizzle cake and homemade raspberry jam. The weather was great which added to our enjoyment. A highlight for us was the Southern Comfort boat from Horning, so relaxing and different. Jazzy was welcomed on board and made a fuss of. For eating pleasures we highly recommend the Popplyland 1940's Cafe at Horsey, an experience not to be missed, also The Star Inn - wonderful food. Both within a short distance from Church View. A great week enjoyed by all. See you again!!! Jean, Judy, Jane and Jazz x
19.5.2018 Thank you for a lovely stay. The welcome nibbles were really good and we appreciated the extras for the dogs including holiday name tags. Some great walks on the beach, despite the wind and on the Weavers Way. Richard, Val, Otto and Lily
11.5.2018 Our first week to Church View and indeed Norfolk. Everything was absolutely perfect! Paula, Pete and Weasel made us feel at home from the start, home cooked goodies for all and a huge garden to explore. We took our lead from suggestions given by Paula and peter and spent every day doing as much as we possibly could. So much so we actually wore out our dogs! Bacton Woods, boating on the broads, Horsey Windmill, The Lighthouse, the Radar Museum and beaches, beaches, beaches! We even saw seals and deer! Thank you so much, what a wonderful holiday! Julie, Mark Peggy and Gracie
5.5.2018 Another great week at Church View Cottage. Rain and wind at the start of the week didn't put us off walking and exploring. Sun at the end of the week gave us a chance to sit back and enjoy the boats on the Broads. Peter, Paula and Weasel great hosts as ever and Pete's supply of antiques will probably pay for the holiday! Once again many thanks for all your help and look forward to seeing you soon. Cheryl, Chris and Plum.
28.4.2018 Time to leave already! Another great holiday. Thanks as always to Paula, Peter and Weasel for making our time here so fabulous.

Lots of seals on the beach. Back in September, we'll be counting down!! Sheila, Tony, Ellie and Lola.
14.4.2018 Home from home. A lovely welcome and Bess LOVED her homemade biscuits, as much as we loved the brownies and jam. A cold week but still made the most of the beaches; and nice to return to the cosyness of the cottage to warm up and have a brew. Definitely a place that is so dog friendly and Bess loved to chill out and also make sure the local bird life didn't rest too long in thee garden. thank you for a brilliant stay. We will be back. Helen, Ellen and Bess

30.3.2018 Our first stay at Church View but we will be definitely be coming back. The cottage is lovely and properly dog friendly. The dogs loved the local beaches and there are plenty to choose from. We tried Cart Gap, Sea Palling and Walcott. Beaches all had good car parks and toilets. The cottage is cosy and well situated, with a good "escape impossible" garden although who would want to escape from here. :) Sarah, John, Ollie, Tiny and Eric
24.3.2018 Our first visit to Church View and we have enjoyed a fabulous week. We arrived in snow and howling winds from the East but received a very warm welcome and a lovely hamper of cakes and other goodies. By Monday the weather started to improve and by Wednesday it was very Spring like. We have walked every day. ur Jack Russel Punk has enjoyed several muddy walks at Bacton Woods and numerous visits to the beach @ Cart Gap and Sea Palling. Getting muddy and playing ball on the each are two of his most favourite things. We spent a fabulous day at Blickling Hall - dogs are not allowed in the hall or formal gardens but there are acres of Parkland to explore.. We also enjoyed three hours on a small boat- exploring the Broads from Wroxham down to Horning and back. Several dog friendly cafes in Horning- we recommend The Gallery. We are sad to be going home, we could have stayed for several more weeks and not be bored- so many places to explore and walks to do. Return visit for 2019 already booked. Thank you Paula, Peter and Weasel. From Lorna, Gary and Punk.
17.3.2018 This is our third visit to Church View and we are back in September, we love it here and is home from home. Thank you for our welcome basket, lovely as always. My four doggies have had a lovely week, lovely walks along the beaches; Sea Palling, Mundesley and even too a drive to Holkham, a little further but well worth it as stunning beach and woodlands there. First time to Bacton Woods, well worth a look as beautiful walks. Thank you Paula and Peter. See you in September Weasel! Nicola, Andy, Harry, Honey, Harvey, Holly P. S Booked 2019's holiday as well!

18.3.17 Thanks for a very comfortable and well equipped cottage, a home from home for a week.We had great weather for us and the two dogs Alfie and Millie. I enjoyed my bike riding around the quiet lanes of Norfolk and this was a great base to explore from. Enjoyed some of the circular walks and dog friendly pubs, cafes etc in the vicinity. Walking along side the Dilham canal and Honing Loch was really peaceful and we were lucky enough to have most of Holkham beach to ourselves to throw the ball for the dogs. Sea Palling is also a great beach with miles of sand. If the don't mind the smell of the seals then Horsey Gap is a good walk too.

4.3.2017 A great week in a lovely cottage. This was our 7th visit to Norfolk in 3 years but our first to Church View Cottage and hopefully won't be our last! The cottage has everything you need for a relaxing break but is also well situated for exploring. Always highly recommend the Hill House pub in Happisburgh for its welcome for both dogs and humans - in that order! And its food and beer. The beach huts at the Dunes Cafe in Winterton are a great idea - had a yummy cake there after a sunny walk along the almost deserted beach. Thank you Paula and Peter for the warm welcome, the lovely goodies and for providing a perfect cottage. Sorry to easel for Holly's barking! Anne, John, Holly and Bracken.
25.2.2017 Lovely cottage- so clean and well equipped. As a non dog owner I could not notice any smell of previous dogs. Lovely warm and comfy bedding too. Paula and Peter were very considerate towards my two year old. We had a lovely wander and cake at Wroxham, Happisburgh and Sea Palling. A lovely few days away. Sarah, Charlie. Thank you Paula, Peter and Weasel for another fantastic holiday. Diane and Poppy x
13.2.2017 Very honoured to be the first guests of the year! Absolutely spotless cottage and the smell of new carpet was lovely. The homemade brownies were scoffed within a day and the dogs loved the biscuits. The weather was so cold that we read and played games in front of the woodburner, only venturing out for a bracing walk at Sea Palling and a delicious Sunday lunch at The Star. We were really impressed with the food and how the staff made such a fuss of the children and the dogs. Thank you very much for having us. Hannah, Kelvin, Mollie, Nell, Todd and Titch.
3.1.2017 Happy new year from Sam and Alvin. We had a lovely time at Church View, peanut butter cookies were nom, nom. We had a long run at Sea Palling and met lots of friends. Our humans particularly liked the log burner, comfy beds and bottle of fizzy stuff, it made them laugh a lot. Thank you for the supply of logs. Lots of love Sam and Alvin and human entourage of Sharon, Alan, Gemma and Sean.
31.12.2016 Our first trip to Church View. A bit of a trial run as our dogs are a bit wary and enjoy their own space. What a lovely few days.....bracing sea front walks followed by homemade Christmas cake and mince pies. Paula's recommendations for "quiet" beaches was fantastic and we enjoyed some good quality dog time. Love the holiday tags too. Thank you for a lovely short break and happy new year to you all. Sarah, Mark, Mo, Peter, Anya and Storm.

Have eaten at the Lighthouse Inn, The Star, Kingfisher Fish and Chips and Sugar and Spice Cafe. Thanks for details of the car parking season ticket for £16- think we have only paid once for a car park not being covered by the ticket. Hope to be back soon. Pat and Ailsa.
29.10.2016 Such a lovely welcome from Paula, Pete and Weasel with a wonderful sight of homemade chocolate cake on arrival, fresh flowers and the welcome backet with doggy treats etc - thank you -x We've been spoilt with beautiful weather this week so have visited lots of beaches. Sunday - Happisburgh, Monday we drove to Holkham ( just over an hour)worth the drive though as this was beautiful and we paid for the full day car park which allowed access to the beach car park end but then they allowed you to park your car in to Holkham House grounds. We then drove through to Burnham Market town which looked a sweet little place. Tues - we visited the seals at Horsey- WOW!! You must do this. We loved watching them in the sea and sunbathing on the sand. Golf at Royal Cromer in the afternoon. Wednesday - We went to Wroxham and hired a boat on the broads. Hired it for 3 hours. Enjoyed looking at all the riverside properties. We then went in to Wroxham barns. We then took the dogs to Waxham beach to tire them out. ( very quiet beach) and ended the day with a meal at The Star (Huge portions!) Thurs- we went to Sea Palling each- beautiful- waked for a few miles and then treated ourselves to hot chocolate and cake at Waxham barns. Golf in the afternoon at Mundesley golf club. Friday - we drove to Cromer and then to Holt. Enjoyed lunch at Kings Head. In the afternoon we went to Sheringham Park and had a great time walking in the woods. We've packed a lot in but feel like wehavehad such a relaxing, happy week away. We look forward to seeing you next year! With love Lindsey, Dave, Charlie, Alfie and Sunnie.

Great week - Ill be back with parents in tow! Tracey, Poppy, Maisie, Pixie and Bob.
1.10.2016 A lovely relaxing week at Church View Cottage. From the minute we arrived we felt home from home and the cottage and facilities met our every need. A super comfy bed to recharge the batteries for another day exploring our favourite part of the world.. We didn't get to try out the fab looking fire as the weather has been fantastic for this time of the year. But perhaps next time! As we'd love to come back. Many thanks for the privilege of being able to stay here. Gill, George,and Merryn.
24.9.2016 What a beautiful week in a beautiful cottage. Very warm welcome thank you to Paula, Peter and Weasel. And thank you for the lovely basket of goodies. Dogs loved their treats. We had brill weather and so made good use of the stunning beaches. Sea Palling is beautiful, dog friendly, also Horsey, amazing sights, seals beautiful. Our 4 King Charles doggies have had a brill holiday and are going home worn out and stiff legged. We usually go to Devon on holiday and never thought we would say this, but this cottage and the beautiful beaches beat Devon. " See you next year!" Nicola, Andy, Harry, Honey, Harvey and Holly.

20.8.2016 A wonderful week obviously helped with the weather being so good. Our grandchildren and dogs thoroughly enjoyed themselves. For little ones Dinosaur Adventure is very good. The beach at Happisburgh just a 5 minutes drive is excellent for dogs. Also Sea Palling is excellent for the children and the dogs. All of us enjoyed the food at The Lighthouse in Walcott. Just over 5 minutes away , food excellent and during summer Monday to Thursday there is children's entertainment in the marquee outside. The cottage was very quaint and welcoming, especially Paula's homemade jam and cup cakes they went down very well. The dogs loved their homemade dog biscuits plus bread and tomatoes, such a lovely gesture and really made us feel welcome. We will definitely be back at some point. Location and hospitality was fantastic. Thank you Paula and Peter. Regards Debbie, Dale, Jemma, Brooke, Leo, Flash and Charlie.
13.8.2016 Well what can we say.......we don't want to go home!! A lovely welcome greeting from Paula, Pete and Weasel and homemade treats. A beautiful, dog friendly cottage and garden. The bbq was put to good use- thank you! So many beautiful beaches- seeing the seals today at Horsey was wonderful! Winterton on Sea, Happisburgh, Mundesley - all lovely. Wroxham and a nostalgic visit to Sprowston and Mousehold Heath where we used to live 30 years ago all added to our wonderful week. Our dogs Tucker, Zero and Bailey have had a brilliant week and I think they are pretty exhausted after so many fun packed days! I am sure we will return in a couple of years! Thank you for letting us share your home and area. Ali, Steve, Tucker, Zero and Bailey.

30.7.2016 Our first time staying here and it was very nice to do so. A great base for the Broads and the coast. We were particularly pleased for our dogs who had a nice, secure garden and homemade dog biscuits. We can second the comments about The Star, we had Sunday roast and it was very good. If we were holidaying this way again , Church View Cottage would be at the top of the list. The Old Vicarage Garden is well worth a visit or two! Ken, Priscilla, Ally, Dylan and Olly.
16.7.2016 This was our second holiday here at Church View Cottage, so it felt like "coming home". We absolutely adore all of the beautiful beaches and loved taking the dogs to Happisburgh beach in the evenings......we ventured up to Wells Next The Sea this time and it was well worth the trip-stunning beach. We enjoyed two lovely meals out at The Star in Lessingham and The Wayford Bridge, but also liked to "dine in" at the cottage. We have already booked again for next year! Thank you for all the lovely goodies in the welcome basket. Alison, Jon, Bertie and Jack.
9.7.2016 We have just had a fantastic week here and have had great weather too, so peaceful and quiet just how we like it. A lovely welcome from Paula and Pete, lovely people so respectful of our privacy. The cottage was lovely and plenty of space and the garden was perfect for our Labrador. The walks on the local beaches were amazing and relaxing. Bella loved the sea and sand. All in all a great week, really really enjoyed it and great to have a beer and a glass of wine out of some lovely glasses too! We also met the owners dog Weasel who is lovely too. Many thanks Anne, Gaz and Bella

Lottie ( German Shepherd) Sasha ( Golden Retriever) Stella and Ange ( Owners)
4.6.2016 This was our first visit to Church View Cottage and it won't be our last. What a lovely peaceful setting. the cottage is fantastic. The weather this week has been awful so we have spent more time than we expected in the cottage but it has been lovely and having the log burner was great on the really chilly days. When we did venture out we braved the wind and enjoyed lovely walks at Great Yarmouth, Sea Palling and Cromer beaches which were all rather empty given the weather. The Star in Lessingham was fantastic for food and very welcoming. Scruff was given a dog treat and the pub dog gave him lots of licks! Fish and Chips from Kingfisher in Walcott was yummy. The welcome basket was a lovely touch and scruff loved his dog biscuits. We have enjoyed our week and would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing break. Thank you. Claire, James, Sam and Scruff.
28.5.2016 We have had a wonderful week here at Church View Cottage. There is so much to see and do in this area. Sea Palling beach for a long walk and seal watching, Cromer for a seaside experience. The NT properties locally are wonderful for dog walking too. We enjoyed lunch at The lighthouse pub, fish and chips at Cromer . Thank you Paula, Peter and Weasel for a lovely welcome (and lovely welcome basket) and great hospitality. Tina, Derek, Anna and Stevie.
20.5.2016 What a lovely week we have had here at Church View Cottage, the weather has been lovely so trips to the beach, National Trust properties and the local villages and towns has been a delight. Paula and Peter have been great offering advice on the best places to go, local auctions, antiques shops etc. he cottage is absolutely fantastic with everything you need for a week away from home. East Ruston gardens is a must visit place to go for all plant lovers and just those that want a peaceful afternoon. We must come again with so much to see and explore still, thanks for everything. Cheryl and Chris.
13.5.2016 Just coming to the end of a lovely week at Church View Cottage. Paula and Peter are 5* hosts and couldn't do enough to help~ advising on good places to go to and when Lottie tried to put her head under the gate, Peter solved the problem within minutes! The cottage is lovely with lots of quirky touches- throughout the week I kept noticing new things! Thank you for the welcome basket of goodies for me and my 2 dogs- they loved the biscuits! Paula kindly unpacked my supermarket order for me before I arrived.We enjoyed the Mississippi boat ride and if you enjoy beautiful gardens and delicious cakes its worth a visit to Alby Crafts and Gardens. Will be sad to leave on Saturday but looking forward to returning. Lis, Lili and Lottie
6.5.2016 A lovely relaxing week, listening to bird song and the lazy hum of bees, bathed in sunshine in the garden. We have been so lucky with the weather and spent some happy days with some members of our family. We love Norfolk, and although this was our first time at Church View we hope it won't be our last. the welcome basket was a lovely touch, we especially admired the greengage jam. Thank you Philip. Susan, Alfie, Amber and Tessa.
30.4.2016 A wonderful way to spend time with friends and to be able to have our dogs with us. really good welcome in pubs, cafes, allowing the dogs in with us.

16.4.2016 Our second visit to Church View Cottage and we have really enjoyed it. the house is as comfortable as ever and so well equipped, it's a home from home. We have spent a lazy week walking on the beaches and pottering round the area. Enjoyed meals at the Lighthouse and Starr Inn and a great crab sandwich at the Ship at Mundesley. We return home feeling rested and refreshed. Thank you for your welcome.
8.4.2016 Back again for another wonderful stay at Church View Cottage. We have had wonderful walks on the beach at Sea Palling and Happisburgh, even broadening our horizons with a visit to Sheringham Park ( Absolutely beautiful and highly recommended.) Of course all walks followed by lunch at Gunton Arms, Wayford Bridge, and of course The Starr. All were so welcoming even with our crazy cocker spaniels!

27.2.2016 Thanks Paula, Peter and Weasel for a brilliant holiday. From the moment we arrived you have made me feel so welcome and therefore at home straight away. Your welcome basket has been enjoyed by us both- Poppy loved the dog biscuits. We have been on some great walks on the beach at Happisburgh, Mundesley, Cromer and Cart Gap as well as around Blickling Hall Park. All resulting in a tired dog each night. We will be back! Thanks Diane and Poppy
22.2.2016 We were lucky enough to get a two day break at Church View Cottage. We had a lovely chill out weekend with walks along the beach and a welcoming logburner in the evenings. Everything we needed was here and Marley loved his peanut butter bones. A must see at the moment is the seal colony at Horsey beach-the most magical sight! leaving with relucatance but totally re-charged! Many thanks Lorna, Chris and Marley.
20.2.2016 Lovely week as always in East Ruston. Thank you Paula and Peter you are fabulous hosts and of course Mr Weasel, thank you for showing Eric and Rowan your lovely garden.

Ate in The Butchers Arms, Lighthouse, Poacher Pocket and all very nice. Further afield on the Cromer Road The Gunton Arms. Very, very nice but not if you are veggie. Have an open fire they cook the meat on! Also The Roman Camp on the road to Sheringham was lovely too. So fantastic to have truly "dog friendly" places to stay. Thank you Paula and Peter ( the welcome goodies were yum) Karen, Toby, Rowan and Eric.
12.2.2016 Another great week here at Church View. If you are looking for a great lunch you have to try The Star Inn at Lessingham, warm welcome all the time and great food.

31.12.2015 An amazing 4 days! Lovely big garden for the dog to run around in, very clean and tidy cottage, very yummy maltesers cake made for us as we arrived! ( Disappeared very quickly!) We loved the Christmas decorations to make it feel more like home near the occasion. We also liked the sea and sailing themed decorative objects which were amazing. Thank you for a lovely few days and we will definitely recommend you to our friends. Judith, Dave, Laura and Andy.
27.12.2015 Apparently we two humans and our 4 dogs are the first to have Christmas at this lovely cottage. Just so you know when you see photographs the hamper was REAL and left in the kitchen for us. Paula gave us a lovely welcome and can't do enough to help. The area is super dog friendly with beaches and pubs happy to welcome humans and canines alike. Rachel and Donna.
5.12.2015 A wonderful cottage and such a surprise to find really comfy beds! The cottage is well equipped with everything you could need and the jam, relish, bread etc was a lovley touch. Great beaches kin and around the area. Millie and ally had a blast as did we. Thank you so much. Kate and Co.

1.10.2015 What a relaxing and cozy week we have had here at Church View. Ruby and Gracie settled in straight away with a bark and much wagging of tails with Weasel. Paula and Peter made us all feel right at home with scrummy cheese scones & homemade jam and pickle- very nice. The cottage is lovely, a true home from home. Everything has been thought of down to poop bags for the dogs, even to their homemade bones. Thankyou!! We all needed lots of relaxation and rest and that is exactly what we have had. Batteries are recharged and we are rearing to go again. Great beach at Sea Palling and Overstrand. The weather has been glorious. Great woodland walks at Bacton Woods, although not easily found. The cottage is well situated for venturing out and about and nothing is less than hour an hour away. We've been too hot to try the log burner out, maybe next time as we would love to come back again and then maybe the hubby will get to hire the day boat and get on the water again. Thank you Paula and Peter the cottage does you proud!! Darren, Sharon and Ruby and Gracie (springer spaniels)
26.9.2015 Many thanks Paula, Peter and Weasel, the welcome pack was lovely. Beau and Lucy loved the super biscuits! Your jam and pickle was gorgeous. We've visited Happisburgh, Sea Palling and Winterton beaches and have had a lovely relaxing time. We can recommend The swan at Ingham for seriously scrumptious food. Very smart restaurant and beautifully presented food. Beau and Lucy loved the garden and enjoyed playing with Weasel. Very comfortable cottage, you have thought of everything- bed was lovley and comfy too- many good nights sleep. We can recommend a trip on the Mississippi River Boat @ Horning- lovely trip on the Broads. sea Palling was our favourite beach by far! Thanks again Jan, Joe and Beau and Lucy.
19.9.2018 Our sixth visit to Norfolk and our fifth cottage and Church View Cottage kept up the excellent standards. Many thanks to Paula, Peter and Weasel for their hospitality and thanks for the welcome basket- including the dog biscuits which Ailsa loved. First time visit to the Nelson Head at Horsey. great food. If you don't mind a drive 1.5hours, can recommend Brancaster beach, great for dogs, as is Bacton Woods. Hope to be back soon-once we have sorted Ailsa's ligament. many thanks Pat and Ailsa.
12.9.2015 We loved the cottage and the beautiful surrounding countryside. Our dogs particularly enjoyed the garden which is reassuringly secure- it manged to hold our greyhounds and podenco! The "welcome" basket was a wonderful gesture and we appreciated its contents throughout the week. Our favourite places to visit were the beach at Happisburgh- great for doggies. Hillside Shire Horse Sanctuary, West Runton Oasis Curry House, Stalham- brilliant takeaways- we went twice! Hope to be back again soon. Love from Alan, Gill, Archie, Hannah & Basil.
29.8.2015 Lovely cottage, beautiful area of Norfolk. The welcome basket was a lovely touch, especially the dog biscuits! We loved Happisburgh and Sea Palling. Also Cromer and Norwich. Many thanks Caroline, Lee, Caleb and dogs xxx

8.8.2015 Dear Paula, Peter & Weasel,
The past few days at Church View Cottage have been wonderful! We absolutely loved the malteser cake and the other goodies in the welcome basket. We really enjoyed our stay here and are very grateful for all your helpful tips! Vielen Dank und hoffentlich auf ein valdiges wiedersehen! Indy, Thorsten, Amelia and Thea.
25.7.2015 We have had a lovely time. The cottage is very comfortable and is full of quirky features. We have had lots of walks with Rosa along the beach from Cromer to Mundesley and around the grounds at Felbrigg Hall. Happisburgh beach is very convenient with a long stretch suitable for dogs- the tide caught us out a few times though! Would definitely recommend. Thank you to Paula, Peter and Weasel for being so welcoming. Sorry that Rosa was such a pain! Diane, Rebecca, Annette, David and Rosa.
18.7.2015 This was our first visit to Norfolk and it won't be our last. Church View Cottage was in the perfect location for exploring the area. We shall miss walking on the superb, deserted beaches. We particularly liked Happisburgh and Winterton and saw seals at both. Sheringham Park and Felbrigg hall were well worth the visit and both had lovely woodland walks for the dogs. We walked in to Cromer from Overstrand along the cliffs and enjoyed crab sandwiches and the dogs were treated to some doggy ice cream. The cottage and beautiful garden were great to come back after our days out, well equipped and the bed is really comfy. Thank you for the welcome basket of goodies, the cakes were delicious and Jack and Bertie loved their biscuits. It was lovely to meet you both and Weasel and we can't wait to come back soon...... Alison, Jon, Jack and Bertie.
11.7.2015 Church View Cottage is a very special place, unfussy, friendly and very relaxing. Being dog lovers it's great to find a place to stay where the dogs are really welcomed, not just tolerated. On top of that the little touches such as fresh flowers, a welcome pack with such a lot of goodies, including butter, bread and eggs, a supply of "comforts" for the dogs ( beds, bowls, tags for collars etc) and of course the safe, secure, private garden. Great beaches to visit all along the coast, the Weavers Way for dog walks and do visit the Old Barn at Waxham- it's magical and very atmospheric. Good food at The Lighhouse and most pubs in the area. Really enjoyed our stay with you Paula, Peter and Weasel. You have a little gem of a holiday cottage. Hope to return. Penny, Tony, Beth, Bobbie and Breeze.
We went on holiday!
19.6.2015 A lovely stay at Church View Cottage, well equipped and comfortable. There was a lovely welcome pack and flowers on arrival and a warm welcome from Paula. Well situated close to the sea and the broads and enjoyed visiting family and friends nearby. Veronica, Peter and Maizie.
June 6th Hi! i am Florence the Italien Greyhound. This is my first holiday, first time on the sand, first time in the sea and this has been a real home from home experience for me.....Thank you to peter, Paula and Weasel! They have made us feel so very welcome. The welcome basket was delicious, eggs jam, chutney and homemade cakes and dog treeats! The humans are already planning the return! Still so much to see! Florence, Carol and Carol xx
29.5.2015 Once again we had a lovely week. Very comfortable cottage. Paula, Peter and Weasel most genial of hosts. Discovered more places to visit. Mundesley very family friendly-with dog friendly cafe on the beach! Felbrig Hall- beautiful walled garden. We shall be back next year! Thank you Dave, Lorraine , Charlie and Boo.
23.5.2015 Wonderful stay, well equipped and clean cottage. Loved the seals at Horsey. Great beaches everywhere. Friendly, welcoming Paula, Peter and Weasel. Lots of nice treats too!!! Teresa, Stuart and Molly.
16.5.2015 What a wonderful week we've all had. Thank you for making us feel so welcome, for the delicious scones and jam on arrival- much appreciated. Our three lurchers loved their home made biscuits! We've enjoyed the beaches at Cromer, Overstrand, Sea Palling, Happisburgh, Cart Gap and Winterton. Wonderful quiet and peaceful walks along Weavers way and the footpath at the Greyd lunchopposite the cottage. Enjoyed lunch at the Greyhound and The Recruiting Sergeant and of course fish and chips on Cromer Pier! Cottage so cosy, well equipped and comfortable. Our hounds loved the gardens and so did we. Although we have visited this part of Norfolk for several years now, we still discovered lots of new places from a slightly different base. We are all sad to leave- the weather has been very good, but luckily we had one chilly evening which meant we could light the wood burner. Very cosy! We hope to be back next year!

We arrived from Australia looking to buy a house in the area and settle down here. As house-hunting and buying takes time we booked Church View Cottage. We didn’t know what to expect, but we were hoping it would be a little home-from home and, luckily, that’s exactly what it is. A comfortable, peaceful, well-equipped cottage, with a nautical theme to the decor. The central heating is very effective and there is also a wood burner to supplement the heating in the coldest months.
To make it even more homely it comes complete with wonderful neighbours: Peter and Paula (the owners) and Weasel, the resident Labradoodle. We arrived to find a lovely welcome pack, including a home-baked cake, a jar of delicious home-made chutney and various other goodies. Also in the basket was a jar of little nuggets which looked to me like little cheesy biscuits. I found them to be quite hard and not at all cheesy. When I expressed my disappointment to Frances, she said “They are home-made dog biscuits. You haven’t been eating them, have you?”The dogs enjoyed them more than me, but I woke up the next morning with a shiny coat and a wet nose!
There is a nice spacious garden to keep the dogs amused. The only thing they object to is that the fencing is so good that they can’t get out to explore the surrounding countryside unsupervised. Luckily, we are only a 5 minute drive from the beautiful beach at Happisburgh, which they love.
Comfy, cosy, peaceful and friendly: it’s a real home-from-home.
It’s always a leap of faith to book over the internet – especially when booking from Australia – but the cottage is just as lovely as it looks in the photos, and we were made to feel so welcome even though we got lost on the way and were late arriving! What makes it even more special is the way the dogs are really welcome – their own comfy beds, bowls and towels, and such a lovely garden that they are free to enjoy.
Dogs (Brooke and Bailey)
Biscuits...... Cosy beds...... Weasel....... Garden....... Beach...... Woof, Woof!
Many thanks Peter, Paula and Weasel for a very relaxing holiday. Lovely comfortable cottage with everything we needed. Also thanks for the welcome pack ( cake and jam gorgeous), will be back for more.

The cottage is very comfortable and full of character fittings and has been thoughtfully done. We enjoyed the local beaches and also ventured further afield to the North Norfolk Coast. All in all a good relaxing break and would definitely recommend. Especially dog friendly!

Thank you Peter, Paula and Weasel for a warm welcome. Beautiful cottage, great for Alfie the dog, although did make a break for it once! The cottage is beautifully decorated with lots of interesting things to looks at. Loved the signs etc and the book " Norfolk Dumplings" Your knowldege of the area also helped us find some lovely placces to visit, particularly the beach at Happisburgh. Finally thank you again for being so friendly and helpful. Meant to mention fantastic welcome pack, cucumber relish was scrummy, as were the cakes.
