We couldn't have asked for more. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped. We were very lucky the weather was gorgeous so we spent every day on the beach. Which is only 5 mins walk away.beach is stunning, miles of soft sand. So safe for kids as has life guards. Water is very calm due to the man made reef. You even get to see the seals, they swim into the reef. Dog was allowed on part of the beach shop.,cafe,pub,fish and chip shop close by. Everything you could need. Best holiday in UK. Helped by the sunshine of course. Would definitely go again.
Spent a week at Dormouse Cottage - 2 adults, 2 dogs. Beds very comfortable - sofa not so much. Great kitchen (I have kitchen envy). Garden lovely - nice area to sit and read in the sunshine. Beach amazing - clean and beautiful, really enjoyed the daily dog walk on the beach.
Parking a bit tight - managed to scrape my car on the neighbours wall one dark rainy night in my haste to get off the road and out of the way of oncoming traffic.
Shower head could do with replacing - water flow was a bit low and not helped by a bit of limescale on the shower head. Also just 1 large opening window in the bathroom so neighbours get a bit of an eyeful - bathroom gets very steamed up as no fan installed and I didn’t want the room to get too damp.
We stayed in Sea Palling a few years ago when the Star pub was still open - didn’t realise it had shut - visited the Reef bar just the once before realising it wasn’t really my cup of tea. Chose instead to drive out to the Fisherman’s Rest and Winterton a few times for lovely dinner - thoroughly recommend it.
A lovely, well situated (2 mins walk to amazing beach) house that was perfect for our family of 3. It's been well modernised, rooms are spacious, the kitchen is a good size and well stocked, and the lounge felt like a home from home.
Off road parking and a convenience store across the road made practical and really useful differences.
We loved discovering the area and fell in love with seals at Horsey, a 5 min drive away but there's so much to do and find in this part of Norfolk and Dormouse Cottage was a pleasure to return to each evening after a day of activity.
Located near the local store and just a stroll away from the beach, Dormouse Cottage is an ideal place to stay. In addition to the sandy life guarded beach there are many attractions within reach such as the broads, Wroxham Barns, BeWilderwood, Sheringham with its steam railway to name but a few. The cottage itself was very well kitted out including toys for the children. If the grass had been cut it would have been even better.
Clean, modern, superbly well equipped. Yet still homely and comfortable for a winter stay. Family with grandparents and two boys seven and three appreciated the entertainment left for the children and how well the kitchen worked. Parking was no problem as double yellow lines on all nearby streets only apply May to September. Village shop 20 yards away and a nice stroll to the beach with a cafe open even in February.
With good weather we hired a boat at Stalham and walked to see the seals at Horsey Gap. In the rain the children went ten pin bowling or played on the Wii provided.
