Cosy countryside Norfolk barn conversion

“Boundary Lodge is fantastic; truly dog friendly and within a short drive of many stunning beaches. Underfloor heating made our stay in November cosy and comfortable and the welcome pack for us and our dog was great. The setting is peaceful with lovely views and the garden is well fenced and totally secure so dogs can enjoy their freedom. We have already recommended it as a wonderful holiday destination and we are looking forward to coming back next year!”

This cosy Norfolk barn conversion offers single storey living with additional relaxing area on the mezzanine level for additional comfort. wonderfully peaceful rural location is perfect for reactive dogs.  You can enjoy views across the fields from the bedrooms and from the fully enclosed and gated garden. Hickling Broad is one mile away and the coast is a short 10 minute drive.

Hello! We are Stephen and Jacqui and we are the proud owners of Boundary Lodge, along with our German wirehaired pointer, Tiggers. Stephen and I met playing in a brass band – in the photo, I’m playing tuba and Stephen is on the sousaphone. We both enjoy riding motorcycles, with Stephen often to be found zipping round the Snetterton circuit when he gets the chance. We love the countryside of Norfolk and I love to spend time studying natural history, especially birds and insects. Tiggers prefers a good run round in the great outdoors!

“We had a fabulous week at wonderful Boundary Lodge. Gorgeous cottage, warm, comfortable, clean and peaceful rural location – but close to everything, town and beautiful beaches. Wonderful safe garden for the dogs. Thank you so much for the generous welcome pack.”¬†– Brenda Greaves

“Lovely cottage, very peaceful and great garden for the dogs. Lovely welcome pack got us off to a great start. Excellent walks and pubs nearby – thank you.” – Steve and Titch

“We loved our week at the peaceful Boundary Lodge. Lot of good walks locally and we went to Blakeney which is one of our favourite places. No beaches for us sadly as our dog is frightened of the sea!” – Ron, Mike, Lexi and Nala.

“What a wonderful week we have had! It has been an absolute joy to stay in this accommodation that is truly dog friendly! Our favourite beaches were Cart Gap and Winterton where we were privileged to see numerous seals swimming and on the beach. The Dunes Cafe @ Waxham Barn was fab. Thank you so much!”¬†– Richard, Suzanne and Seren.
