  • "We had a lovely stay at Rose Cottage with our 3 little chihuahuas who loved the enclosed garden It was a very well equipped cottage and very homely We only got to use the downstairs area (our choice) and the beds were really comfortable and it gave us a chance to sample bungalow living which is the reason why we are so late with our review we have been very busy packing up to move to a bungalow!"

    Although we only stayed at Rose Cottage for a few day's we found a few lovely places to take the dog's and ourselves to As soon as we are settled in our new home we will definitely be researching the local area a bit more and booking Rose Cottage again We have already spoken to our friends about this lovely little cottage Thank you again for a lovely stay and a lovely welcome pack for us all

  • "The cottage was warm clean and welcoming ."

    The listing and photos didn’t do it justice , it was so much more than I had imagined it to be . Very dog friendly and definitely a cottage for all seasons . The garden was so secure, even for a husky escape artist. The owners were very helpful and made themselves available if we needed help with anything. A perfect holiday cottage.

  • "Rose Cottage is a brilliant property."

    The property was clean, fresh and comfortable. We had a lovely welcome basket left for us and some treats for the dogs. There were also extra towels, bowls and toys for the dogs. The garden is quite large, not over looked and backs onto a field so it's a lovely place to spend some time relaxing. We would definitely recommend to friends and we would book again!

  • "Rose cottage is an excellent cottage."

    It is very clean, comfortable and very well equipped. The garden is lovely and completely enclosed for dogs. The owner left a great welcome pack including treats for the dog. It is well situated for visiting Sandringham, Banham Zoo and the north coastal beaches. There is also a handy corner shop in the village as well as a fish and chip shop. Other good shopping is not too far away in King’s Lynn. I can highly recommend this cottage and would happily stay there again.

Resting on a quiet street filled with period flint cottages is Rose Cottage, a gorgeous stone-built dwelling offering a fantastic UK holiday stay in the heart of East Anglia, perfect for a large family getaway.

Find this stunning semi-detached property, boasting neutral exposed stone resting behind an enclosed pebbled front entrance garden and heaps of traditional character.

On the fringe of the town is the mainline railway station with links to Ely, Cambridge, King's Cross London and King's Lynn.
