Rooster Barn, Trunch
"Our third stay at Rooster Barn with our 5 cocker spaniels! We have absolutely fallen in love with it here! The welcome pack is fabulous, the garden is so safe for all dogs and we love the log burner. We found some amazing beaches - Holkham was our favourite and definitely worth the drive! Winterton was another great find and the dogs loved exploring the dunes. Saw lots of seals at Horsey beach. C

Outside: There is a lovely south facing patio and a gravelled area around the house together with a large grass paddock area. The whole of the property is gated and well fenced around the perimeter with a combination of post and rail fencing with stock mesh (smaller at the bottom to stop very small dogs squeezing through), solid fence panels and a mix of fencing plus planting. At the lowest point it is approx 4ft. Rooster Barn grounds are mature and include an attractive planting of shrubs and hedge plants. The main garden is laid to lawn with plenty of space for your dogs to exercise in a safe and secure space.
How to find us: Rooster Barn, Mundesley Road, Trunch NR28 0QB
Or - from the A149 North Walsham by pass, turn onto the B1145, Lyngate Road heading towards Swafield. Just into Swafield the road bears sharp right. Go STRAIGHT on here towards Trunch. When you reach the village shop (approx 1 mile) turn right. There are two possible turnings so if you miss one, the other will do. If you take the first one you will go past the Crown pub and at the junction go straight over (and slightly downhill) onto the Mundesley Road. If you take the second one, you will need to take the first left onto the Mundesley Road. The drive way to Rooster Barn is signposted on the left and is opposite a small road junction. Rooster Barn is at the top of the drive, though the gateway.
