Seaview Cottage, Bacton

Sleeps 8

The perfect seaside holiday house

“We had a wonderful week here at Seaview with our pack on our holidays. It’s so nice to be able to walk to the beach and pop back for lunch. The beds were really comfortable, the kitchen fully equipped, the dog shower was very handy and it’s lovely having a tv in all the bedrooms.” 

Seaview Cottage is perfect for holidays with your pack, so close to the beach and with a huge secure garden.  The hot tub is popular too!

  • Just a few yards to the sandy, dog friendly beach at Bacton.
  • Walk to nearby Walcott with its very dog-friendly pub (the Poacher’s Pocket),
  • Nearby cafes (Kingfisher Cafe) and Watson’s are dog welcoming.  As is Cafe Carmel – a perfect vegan cafe!
  • Two well stocked village shops, fish and chips, Chinese takeaway all a short walk away!
  • Hot tub! Soak away the long beach walks, watching the stars and listening to the waves


Living Room
Two lovely big, squidgy sofas to seat 6 and a chair.  The room is a proper cottage living room so we can’t fit any more big sofas in but there is other seating in the kitchen.  Woodburning stove is at the heart of the room and a wall-mounted 40″ flat screen tv (with Freesat) and some lovely art works. From here into the…

Modern fitted kitchen, all open plan. Plenty of room, fitted oven and hob, fridge, freezer, microwave, toaster, kettle etc. Plenty of crockery and cutlery and everything you need to cook for 8. Wooden table and chairs for 6; pulls out to seat 8.  You can open up the double doors and go straight into the garden.

Laundry room
Washing machine and plenty of storage for boots, coats etc. and…

Downstairs toilet and shower
Well fitted, tiled throughout, shower cubicle, sink and toilet.

Bedroom 1
Just off the kitchen this bedroom has a king size bed that is adjustable. Press the button and the head end rises up, so you can get super comfortable to read or eat or even to help you get out if you have mobility problems.  Plenty of hanging and drawer space too and views out of the front of the house across the lane and field.  40″ Tv and Freesat box in room too!

From the kitchen you can open the double doors to the…

Back into the house and through the living room to go up the stairs (straight and not too steep, with hand rail) to the…

Upstairs loo
Rather decorative black and cream loo and sink with a view.  You can see the sea when you wee!

Bedroom 2
Double bed with plenty of hanging and storage space with some beautiful pictures decorating the walls.  Tv and freesat box in room too!

Bedroom 3
Double bed with plenty of hanging and storage space and of course some lovely pieces of art and a tv and Freesat box.

Ensuite Bedroom 4
Kingsize bed with an enormous feature vintage wooden headboard, lovely new comfy mattress and bed linen and a tv too.  The bathroom has been added with a shower, another loo with a view and a whirlpool bath.  Lie in this, enjoy the bubbles and the sea view too. There are double doors opening out onto the glassed balcony (flush to the wall) looking over the garden so you can enjoy the fresh air and sound of the sea while you ablute! 40″ tv with Freesat box too.



The garden is a very good size and fully enclosed with a nearly 6ft high thick hedge, backed with a solid fence – really secure!  And now a hot tub!

You can hear the sea and the gulls from the garden with just a field between you and the sea.  There is a garden room with sofas in for sitting and enjoying the sun or an evening barbecue (provided) and a dog poo loo to save using plastic bags AND a warm dog shower too.

Your pack can really let loose in this garden on their holidays – Seaview Cottage has such a secure boundary!



This superbly secure property suits most dogs and unlimited dogs are truly welcome!  The garden is a good size for running around and playing, no other dogs can be seen or heard nearby.  There is hardly any passing traffic and only a few people will be walking past the house on the way to the beach.  The walk to the beach is very short and the beach itself is generally quiet.  Reactive dogs are usually very happy here!



  • Sleeps 8 but seating in living room comfortable for 6. Dining seating for 8.
  • No smoking in the house please.
  • The house is semi-detached – please do respect the neighbours’ peace and quiet and not allow dogs to bark too much in the garden or children to make excessive noise in the house. IF you would like to leave your dogs unattended in the house, and you are not confident they will be settled, please contact us for free dog sitting.
  • The lane access to the cottage is a single track, residential lane – please travel along it slowly for the safety of all.
  • If you would like your dogs to sleep on the beds, just let us know and bring your own bed linen.

“Our pack of beagles just loved their holidays here at Seaview Cottage!  We don’t want to go home and they will all sulk when we leave! We all loved being on the beach and the house was just Sooooooo comfy!  I loved the bathrooms too.  Having a sea view is priceless.”

Location & Directions

How To Find Us:

Watchhouse Lane Bacton Norfolk NR12 0HL

Drive through Bacton or Walcott on the B1159, depending on which way you are coming, and opposite the lane leading to Bromholme Priory (private) there is a small road between the houses. This is Watchouse Lane. Drive a couple of hundred yards along this, towards the sea and on your left will be two semi detached houses. The furthest is Seaview Cottage. To leave the cottage it is safest to come out of the alternative entrance, so leave the cottage and instead of turning towards the Priory road, keep going and come out on the small layby by some historic houses. This is only a very short distance from the other entrance but easier and safer to come out of.

"Excellent location in an area we have visited and stayed in with friends on a few occasions. Seaview is literally 2 minutes from the beach, ideal for dog walks with the Poachers Pocket just 10 minutes away. The cottage was spot on, had everything required to make the stay worthy of the visit, would stay there again is the only recommendation needed. Thank you to the owners, definite recommendation. We stayed with friends plus 4 dogs but this is ideal for a family with young kids...and dogs of course. The outside dog shower had warm water which was a brilliant addition.👍👍good luck from Lincolnshire"



“Our first time at Hidden Gem but not East Ruston Cottages.   The cottage is absolutely wonderful and has a very homely feel.  We have had a really relaxing holiday in a stunning location and Hidden Gem is like a home from home.  The beach and dunes are beautiful and the garden has been perfect for our two hounds!  A very dog friendly holiday cottage. All the extra little touches and the welcome gifts have been much appreciated!  We will definitely be back!! "

“Thank you so much for allowing us to be your first guests in Corner Cottage. My first impression was "WOW!". The cottage is amazing, you have thought of everything (even supplied fantastic weather!). The decoration is lovely, beds so comfortable.
