1 Chapel Cottages is in the lovely village Lessingham, a short drive from the dog friendly beaches of Cart Gap and Sea Palling with its Blue Flag status. Sea Palling has a dog friendly bar and cafe plus a shop/post office. The dog friendly café is open 364 days of the year, and there is also a fish and chip café and a fresh fish stall too in the village. Cart Gap has a great café “Smallsticks” just a short walk from the beach – with great food and dogs welcome in the yard area – and you can also see the RNLI lifeboat station.
The nearby town of Stalham means that you can easily get supplies for your stay at Chapel Cottage and from here there is access to the wonderful Norfolk broads; boat hire is available at Stalham Staithe and Wayford Bridge; both close by.
The cottage is at the start of a footpath where you can wander along through the farm land with your dogs and if you are in need of refreshments, the local pub, The Lessingham Star, is only 10 minutes’ walk away……..but maybe 20 minutes back!! The Ingham Swan, popular for local fine dining is only a short distance away.
Watch out for the local resident owl who sits outside the cottage at sunset on the telegraph pole right next to the cottage on an evening hunt, a breath-taking spectacle to see!!
We hope you enjoy your holiday and visit to 1 Chapel Cottage.
