White Cottage, Happisburgh
"Wow what a fabulous cottage, it has everything. Our two dogs loved it and so did we. Once again, lovely meals at 'The Star' and tried 'The Poachers Pocket' too. Can recommend the beach at Sea Palling. Walked along the beach to Eccles and up to Lessingham, great not having to rely on the car."

Big garden - so safe for all the dogs. Brilliant raised dog beds and throws. Thank you for the care you have taken to make us feel at home. LOVED IT!!"
