A Holiday at Boundary Stables

A Holiday at Boundary Stables



With full disabled access, off-road parking, free Wi-Fi, and unrestricted use of a luxury sauna, Boundary Stables cottages, in the coastal village of Happisburgh, are perfect for a relaxing break in the beautiful Norfolk countryside. Barn Owl, Fieldfare, Goldfinch, Kestrel, and Wren are self-contained, one-storey holiday cottages, each with its own enclosed courtyard, gas barbecue, and well-equipped kitchen. We, the owners, live just across the road, and are there to welcome you and to deal with any problems during your stay. (REVIEW: “You couldn’t ask for better hosts.”)


Dogs are very welcome at Boundary Stables, and the surrounding area is a haven for dog walkers, with plenty of off-road footpaths through farmland and ancient woodland. Well-beaten footpaths and bridleways take you for miles along the picturesque Norfolk coast, and a long, peaceful stretch of beach, with unrestricted access for dogs, is just a few minutes’ walk from the cottages. Dogs (and children) can let off steam in the shared paddock, and the private courtyard that comes with each cottage is a safe place for dogs (and children!) to spend time outside, where you can keep an eye on them. (REVIEW: “A real doggy paradise”)


Each of our cottages is comfortably furnished, and well-equipped with home comforts, including colour TV, DVD player, radio/CD player, washing machine, and microwave. Goldfinch and Fieldfare also contain a dishwasher. Bed linen, towels, and all fuel/power are included in the rent, and cots and highchairs are available for very young children. (REVIEW: “The cottage was well presented and had the most equipment we have ever had.”)


Despite the home-from-home kitchen, you will probably want to eat out during your stay at Boundary Stables, and we are always pleased to recommend local cafés, pubs, and restaurants, such as The Hill House Inn (Happisburgh), Smallsticks Café (Cart Gap beach), Poppylands (Horsey), Kingfisher Fish Bar and The Lighthouse Inn (Walcott), The Star Inn (Lessingham), and Poppylands (Horsey).


In good weather, there’s nothing quite like cooking and eating outdoors. Each cottage has its own gas barbecue and outside furniture, so you can enjoy the peace and quiet of an evening barbecue in your private courtyard, or perhaps a daytime picnic in the shared paddock, where dogs and children can run around to their hearts’ content.


A comprehensive Visitor Information Book in your cottage lists many lovely places to visit, including some of Norfolk’s nature reserves and stately homes. You will also find information about local health centres, dental surgeries, veterinary surgeries, pharmacies, supermarkets, and post offices. However, if you require more information, or if you have any queries, we’re only too pleased to help; we’re just over the road – or a phone call away.


REVIEW: “If we could go anywhere in the world, we’d still choose to come here.”
