Bay Tree House, Norfolk.

There are three ground floor cottages adjoining Bay Tree House: Woolly View, The FoxBurrow and Bobtail Corner. Each unit has its own private entrance, and has been designed with great attention to detail to provide privacy and comfort. Equipped with all you need for either a short break or longer stay,
the accommodation is warm and comfortable and the welcome equally so. Each cottage has a TV/DVD player, hairdryer and alarm clock, bed linen and towels are provided, and also included are electricity and heating. Guests can either stay on a bed and breakfast or self-catering basis, Christine is happy to provide a continental style breakfast and welcomes up to two well-behaved dogs in each property. Guests can also park their car immediately outside the properties - useful when it comes to unloading baggage
and dogs....

Woolly View and the Fox Burrow sleep 2 people and Bobtail Corner can sleep 4 with the use of a sofa-bed. They each have a small, private outside area to sit and enjoy to countryside views, Fynn, Jack and I did just that after our arrival; me with the cream tea which had been thoughtfully left for me and the dogs
with their bowl of food (its tough being a dog!) Coming back here after a hectic and hot day of agility was just wonderful.

We stayed in Fox Burrow,
which was ideal for our short two night break. It has a small kitchen area, en-suite shower room and lovely, comfortable bed.

There was plenty of room in the
bed/living area for the three of us,
I have stayed in
hotels which had smaller rooms
and so this was spacious by comparison.

A short walk from the house took us into the village where we followed a footpath by the church, through woodland and into open fields – perfect for a quick stroll before dinner. Passing friendly neighbours sitting in their gardens or walking through the village helped confirm the comfortable feel of the location.
It is always a bonus when staying at any dog friendly property, to be able to take the dogs for a walk without getting into the car, and that is certainly the case here. We have already booked our next stay at Bay Tree House, and I am certain there will be more.

The unique city of Norwich is steeped in history with its extraordinary and outstanding buildings, its famous people and its beautiful riverside. In the countryside discover the amazing unspoilt landscapes of the Norfolk Broads where you can sail, canoe, walk and cycle. You can hire sailing boats, motor cruisers (by the hour or the day) you can even charter one of the few remaining Norfolk Wherry yachts, complete with crew.

Wildlife and walks

The Boudicca Way is a long distance footpath which runs for approximately 36 miles between Diss and Norwich. It offers a great place to walk, cycle, bird watch and explore. Other long distance paths within the area include Marriotts Way, a 21 mile (34 km) route from Norwich to Aylsham. This path is on former railway lines and is also suitable for horse riders and cyclists. Aylsham lies on another long distance walk, The Weavers’ Way, which runs for 61 miles between Cromer and Great Yarmouth. “Kett’s Country”, a 21 mile (34 km) route to Wymondham, commemorates Robert Kett, leader of Norfolk’s Peasants’ Revolt in 1549. The Tas Valley Way takes you on a 25 mile (40 km) tour of small villages between Norwich and Attleborough. Bird-watching is a popular pastime as the Broads are home to some of the rarest wildlife including the reclusive bittern. Norfolk Wildlife Trust manages nearly 10,000 acres for wildlife reserves right across the county with a number of these within easy reach of Nowich, and the RSPB has 5 or 6 reserves also within reach.

Fynn and Jack enjoy the accommodation and local walks.

Situated on the edge of the small, peaceful village of Frettenham, Bay Tree House enjoys a peaceful location surrounded by open countryside and farmland and next to an animal sanctuary.

Ten minutes from the city of Norwich and airport, five minutes from the Broads and just a short journey to the coast makes this an ideal base to explore all that this part of Norfolk has to offer. Bay Tree House is also conveniently located for the coast, with Great Yarmouth and the Broads to the east, and Cromer and Sherringham to the north.
