You can bring up to 3 dogs to stay with you at the cottage, and this can be booked online. We charge a fee per dog of £25. If you would like to bring more dogs with you, then please contact us or our letting agents to discuss. The cottage is dog friendly and has an enclosed garden, as we are dog owners ourselves. The North Norfolk coast is a great place to come on holiday with your dog

Our change around day is Friday but we can be flexible on this particularly in low season. During school holidays all bookings run Friday to Friday

Our minimum booking is 3 nights, however if you need to leave Sunday evening rather than Monday morning that is fine, just make sure you lock up the cottage and return the keys to the key safe or pop them through the letterbox at the Blakeney Cottage Company. Please let the cottage company know if you will be leaving early.

Two of the bedrooms and two of the bathrooms are downstairs. The remaining three bedrooms and two bathrooms are upstairs.

Yes there are four IKEA high chairs at the cottage ( we got a little carried away in IKEA as they are stackable which we loved )

They are stored in the cupboard under the stairs, or sometimes in the large utility room and they stack. They each have a removable tray and are very easy to clean.

Yes logs are provided for the log burner, and will usually be in a log basket in the snug. We also stack additional logs in the porch in the autumn and winter, and there is a log store next to the garage, which is also for the use of guests while they are staying at the cottage.

Yes freshly laundered towels and tea towels are provided for guests at the cottage to use. A white hand towel and a large white bath towel is provided for each guest. Tea towels are also provided plus a dish cloth. You will need to bring your own beach towels and dog towels.
