The Lodge, East Ruston
"We have to say this is the best dog friendly holiday cottage that we have ever stayed in. It really is a home from home. We have had amazing weather for March, warm and sunny. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to come back again soon. We thank you for the welcome basket of goodies and the beautiful flowers.".
"We arrived to a wonderful warm welcome. The Lodge is beautifully appointed and tastefully decorated, very warm and comfy. The dogs were in heaven, with lovely walks on various beaches, and their absolute favourite was Bacton Woods. We have all fallen in love with the area and have plans to return. Many thanks".

Or - From the A149 which bypasses Stalham take the road signposted to Bacton/Happisburgh (Stepping Stone Lane).
