The Grove, Edingthorpe

Sleeps 4 in 2 bedrooms

Single storey cottage with secure private garden

“We had a lovely stay at the Grove with our 3 dogs. The owner couldn’t have been more helpful. Great location and a very well equipped home, with lovely garden. We only wished we had another week!

The Grove is so tucked away, down a network of designated Quiet Lanes in the hamlet of Edingthorpe.  Thatched cottages, village pond, ancient church and peace and quiet!  The house is a very easy to live in bungalow with some lovely features and surrounded by fields.  One of the things guests will most enjoy are the views out of the sitting room window, across the fields.  Deer, buzzards, bats and so many birds to watch.  The garden is a really good size, fully secure and dog friendly of course!

  • The house is on a dead end lane with a footpath at the end, connecting with a maze of further country paths.
  • Bacton/Witton woods are a mile away, along designated quiet lanes. Perfect for sheltered walks.
  • The coastal village of Bacton is 2 miles away, again an easy walk along quiet lanes.
  • Here you can walk on the beach, visit our favourite cafe – the very dog friendly Sugar & Spice, or the equally dog friendly Poachers Pocket pub.  Cafe Carmel is here too (vegan)
  • Mundesley coastal village is just over 3 miles and has everything from a great dog friendly pub, cafes, fish and chips, local Tesco, children’s play area and, of course, a beautiful beach!
  • From the front garden ( a seat specially in place) and the living room you can regularly see deer, hares, tawny and barn owls, Leighton the buzzard and his friends and many bats as the sun sets.



Through the front door into the hall way with hooks for coats/keys etc.  The floor is wooden with non slip mats (there are more of these available in the hall cupboard).

Sitting room
Lovely large windows with view across fields – a wonderful place to view the setting sun.

There is a three seater leather sofa, a two seater leather sofa and fabric covered chair – plenty of seating!   Throws are provided for these.  There is a lovely feature fireplace with a wood burning stove.  The  TV is a 32″ Smart HD tv with built in DVD player.  Wooden coffee and chest/drawer unit for games, books etc and reading lamp with USB charger built in.

This is at the front of the house so that there are views across fields, making washing up a pleasure!  If you don’t want to wash up you can use the built in dishwasher!  There is also a built-in Stoves oven with a double oven/grill.  The hob is halogen and there is a microwave, toaster, kettle and fridge/freezer.  Plenty of space for food storage and surface space for cooking.  Also a built in washing machine.

The floor is tiled with underfloor heating and there is a door straight into the garden.

Just outside the kitchen the hall way cupboard has extra non-slip mats, vacuum cleaner, broom etc.

Dining Room
There is seating at the dining table for 4, a tall book case with games and books for guest use.   A very useful portable table with built in stools is kept in here – ideal for taking into the living room for a tv dinner if you would rather eat in there.   Views out onto the garden.

Front Master Bedroom
This room has a double bed with a black metal frame. There is a bedside cabinet on one side of the bed and on the other side of the bed is a small matching chest of drawers. Bedding is non-feather.  Two bedside lamps have built in USB chargers – very useful!  The views are towards the rather lovely thatched roof of the cottage next door.   There is no wardrobe but a very useful hanging rail/shelf and a full length mirror.

Second bedroom
The bed is a king size in this room and has two bedside cabinets.  There is a wall mirror and very useful hanging rail. Bedding is non-feather here too.  The two bedside lamps have built in USB chargers as in the other bedroom.  The views are out onto the garden.

A modern bathroom with a bath and mixer shower over the bath with a screen.  There are also two hand held showers. Washbasin and lavatory too.



There is enough parking on the private driveway for up to 4 cars so loads of room!  The side gate gets you into the private and secure garden.   The garden is a good size, plenty of grass with a gravel area and hard standing too.  Garden seating for 4 and the entire garden is fully enclosed by 6ft high foot fencing and gates making it very secure and dog friendly. Hedges all have wire within them.

The front garden isn’t enclosed but does have a little bench seat for those sunset sundowners!



Single storey, fully enclosed garden with a high fence all round.  Reactive dogs can relax here and diggers will have a hard time getting out too!  Pretty much perfect for all dogs.  The garden is a good size for running and playing, that’s if they have any energy after all the lovely long local walks or trips to the beaches!

  • The Grove is non smoking please.
  • Large and medium dog crates are available on request.
  • All bedding is non-feather.

“Pete, Ali, we have thoroughly enjoyed our week at The Grove, it’s gone far too quickly! This is our 5th ERC stay, we have to say it is one of our favourites – we can’t wait to come back! We appreciate all of the little details you have done to make this a real home from home. The little sitting area is the perfect place to eat outside, it was a pity the weather was a bit chilly to enjoy more! Also, a perfect garden for Louis! The walks from the bungalow were perfect for our dog, quiet and lots of off-lead time along the Paston Way – perfect! Smallsticks Cafe, Waxham Barn Dunes Cafe and The Snug at Holt provided us with wonderful food. We also had a great stroll at Walcott and Waxham beach. Thank you for being wonderful hosts.” – Doreen, Kirsty, Karen and Louis (Sept 2021)


“Pete and Ali, you have been great hosts and great in preparing The Grove for our stay. The detail in making our stay comfortable and looked after was faultless! Our Jack Russell loved the garden and the sticks he found! Thanks for the enjoyable stay.” – Alan, Fendi, Darren, Chloe and The Tobster! (Aug 2021)


Thank you so much Ali, Pete and Sue (ERC), we have so enjoyed our stay at The Grove. Our old boy “Ted from the Med” wants you to know it suited his needs perfectly. Good to be back in Norfolk to enjoy its’s beauty. Special moment to see a deer at the bottom of Church Lane. Also special was to enjoy lots of lovely vegan food at Cafe Carmel.”  – Jim, Sharon and Ted (July 2021)

What3 words:


From North Walsham you need to head out on the Bacton Road. To find the Bacton Road put the postcode for THE BLUEBELL INN, Bacton Road, North Walsham NR28 0RA into your sat nav as this is the easiest way to get to the Bacton road.    You will either come to The Bluebell Inn on your left hand side (a white inn with blue painted window frames) or you will see it across the road from you (slightly to the right) depending on which road your sat nav brings you to it on.  Pass with The Bluebell Inn on your left. Enter The Grove’s postcode NR28 9TJ in your Sat Nav or Follow the directions below:

Keep on the Bacton Road (which changes into the North Walsham Road part way along) and you need to take the fifth turning on your left, which is about two plus miles from The Bluebell Inn.  The fifth turning is the first actual crossroads you will come to (a road joins either side). Just as a reference point there should be a white gate ahead of you on the right of this crossroads.  Take the left hand turn at this crossroads.

Follow the quiet lane until you come to a white house on your left & pond on your right.  Just after the white house you will come to a small crossroads. Go straight ahead over the crossroads (between the bungalow on your left and the large thatched house on your right).  The Grove is the first bungalow on your right.


“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. It was so nice to be able to bring the dogs so they could have a holiday with us and experience the beach for the first time."
