September 2021
This is the eighth time we have stayed at the Mill House Cottages properties. We have stayed in all 3 properties, they are all equally great in their own way. The hosts Karen and Stuart are fantastic, you will not find a better holiday cottage, with superb facilities, mega dog friendly, including purpose built dog bath, with treats towels and shampoo, all on hand. Hot tub for the humans, overall, a true home from home experience. Loads of dog friendly activities within a reasonable drive from the property, Watton village only a 5 minute drive away, with everything you will need, including takeaways, Tesco, butchers bakers etc. We have already booked 3 separate weeks for next year, treat yourself !!!

The cottage was very comfortable, clean and everything we needed.. The gardens and meadow were lovely to sit and stroll in. The dog loved the ducks. The hosts were lovely, always at hand for any help and ideas where to visit.

The cottage was just as described and advertised in the pictures.. The hot tub is lovely and if you choose to go in it at night it has fairy lights and an outdoor heater which is a lovely touch - it is more than big enough for the four guests staying in the Hayloft so if you book it for private use, it is very spacious and makes for a lovely evening. The Hayloft lounge has three sofas which made for a really spacious and comfortable communal space - we were four adults and two dogs and we had lots of room to relax. The log burner is a lovely touch and gives it a really cosy feel. The owner had put up and decorated a real Christmas tree which was such a lovely surprise to walk in and see. The bedrooms are large - one is massive. Really comfy beds, plenty of storage, complete peace at night. The bathroom is spacious and clean with a great shower. Having our own fenced off paddock for the dogs was ideal and the dog agility space gave them plenty of space to run around and socialise with the other visiting dogs. There is a pub about a 20 min walk away - not all of this is paved so not that easy to walk in the dark but the cottage does provide a torch. There are other pubs within a short driving distance that we went to on the Sunday for food as the pub near the cottage stops serving food on a Sunday past 1.30pm. Would be great if bathrobes and slippers were provided for the walk to the hot tub - I think other cottages may offer this as the welcome book mentioned it but we could not find these in the Hayloft. But that is a tiny suggestion as otherwise everything was great - would definitely recommend.

We have now been taking our dogs on holiday for the past 5 years and this has by far been the nicest cottage we have stayed in.. From a spacious lounge with plenty of seating to unbelievably large and comfortable beds. Every room is tastefully decorated and has kept its cottage feel. A perfect place to take your dogs with a large paddock area for them to run loose in and outdoor washing facility’s for when they get mucky. Throw in the hot tub and log burner and what more could you possibly ask for? The owner Karen is extremely friendly and helpful and we certainly would recommend this cottage to our friends. The only thing we would have liked is walks on the doorstep or around the village, but there are so many places to visit to take our dogs walking within a 30 or 40 minute drive that even that wasn’t a huge negative.

Stayed here for a week in October the cottage was lovely warm and relaxing. You would never know it was dog friendly no doggy smells at all, the paddock for the dog was a great idea and there own little pamper area. The hot tub was a great hit after a day dog walking and exploring. Would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone.

We stayed with our almost 1 year old and 5 year old daughters. For a place that is for dog lovers you'd never know it. Property is so well maintained and absolutely located in the most amazing area! Easy to get to. Owners were beyond helpful and friendly. The grounds, well we spent 4 of 7 days just in the garden. Stunning! The hot tub, it is a shared usage and you can reserve it for private use which I think is a fantastic idea. You can sit and watch the moon rise from the hot tub, spent many evenings relaxing in there while the kids were asleep. I have family 2 miles from here too so I will 110% stay again! No doubt in my mind. (We booked this because it looked amazing, didnt even know my family were just down the road). Cant fault you in anyway at all! Superb!

My family and I stayed here with my three dogs in August 2019. We stayed in the hayloft. It was clean, very relaxing and very comfortable. The village of Saham Toney was very friendly and is situated in unspoilt Norfolk countryside. We had a fabulous time and would recommend it to anyone

The cottage is on a blind bend quite a busy road so have to be very careful when leaving to go out and as there is no gate to stop dogs running out in to road so.. Keep dogs on lead. There is a place on site to let dogs play which was good

Best dog friendly cottage yet! With the dog paddock, hot tub and larger than life bed and bathroom this cottage was a treat for the entire family. Thanks again to Karen and Sykes Cottages.

We stayed in the Hayloft for 6 nights in June 2018. The situation was very central for visiting the Kings Lynn to Cromer area. Karen and Stuart could not have been more helpful... when we asked for some cleaning material they told us not to worry... we were on holiday! The accommodation fitted the bill for 4 of us (no doggy smells either). We enjoyed visits to Kings Lynn, Sandringham, Old Hunstanton, Burnham Market & Burnham Overy Staithe and over to Felbrigg Hall. The weather was perfect too. Warm enough (in low 20's). I would strongly recommend The SwanInn at Hilborough (IP26 5BW) for meals. We went 3 times and were not disappointed. Ray

Fantastic holiday at Mill House Cottages staying in the Hayloft.. From the moment we arrived Karen was the perfect host to both us and our dogs. The paddocks at the back were perfect for a morning walk and letting the dogs run. The location was also perfect for Brandon and Thetford Forrest and a trip to the coast. We didn't really want to go out in the evening as with the wood fire burning and the lovely rooms we got so cosy. Great kitchen to be able to cook for ourself and then the use of the hot tub was fantastic. So relaxing. Both my teenage daughters visited for a day and loved the cottage. Can't wait to return, hopefully later this year. Many thanks Karen

The owner, Karen was so helpful, friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Stayed at The Hayloft, Karen showed us around The Barn and The Dairy. Highly recommend these cottages especially The Barn. All three were furnished to a high standard. Very dog friendly, I sadly lost my dog two days before travelling, arrived to find a vase of yellow roses. The paddock for dog walks and fresh eggs were excellent. First time in Norfolk, and would definitely go back and stay at the cottages.
November 2017
The photographs online do not do these beautiful cottages full justice.. The owner is exceptionally helpful and her kindness when she knew I had lost my old dog the day before travelling was lovely. Yellow roses for me in the cottage.
Mrs Bucke

It was such a beautiful, comfortable cottage with easy access to a hot tub which we loved.. The paddock was just right for walking our elderly dog-just a few steps away from our front door.We couldn't have wished for a nicer base for our holiday.

Beautiful! It was particularly handy for dogs with 2 little paddocks which are perfectly safe to let your dogs off the lead. Inside the cottage is wonderful, we didn't want to come home!

My wife and I take cottage holidays three or four times a year and always take our two dogs along. This cottage is the best, genuinely dog friendly holiday we have ever had. The owner is so welcoming and truly appreciates how to make you feel at home. A great holiday and lots of nice things to do in the county.

The Hayloft was very homely and cosy and the beds were very comfortable. The hot tub was very large and enjoyable and the cottage and it's surroundings were extremely dog friendly and had a good dog walking area. We enjoyed feeding the chickens and ducks everyday and the owner was extremely friendly and helpful with all of my family.

We have just come to the end of a week in the Hayloft. Children and dogs in tow we have had a most relaxing week. The set up for dogs is superb - mine will be crying as we leave. The cottage is delightful, and hot tub utter bliss - we are so keen to return! Great service - would highly recommend!
Ms Hiller

We were visiting from the U.S. and we were so very happy with The Hayloft. The owner was welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful. Our kids loved playing in the garden and feeding the chickens and ducks. The comfortable bed and blackout curtains helped tremendously with jet lag. The area is lovely with lots to do, or nothing at all. Altogether a wonderful place to spend a holiday. Thank you!

We had a great stay we celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary New year & a birthday. the Christmas tree was still up. We also had friends in the Barn next to use which made it even better. We had our own party and not far to walk home and the hot tub was fantastic. The owners are such lovely people with a good story behind them. We had milk, eggs and wine on arrival and they invited us to their new year celebrations. They were great hosts with good food and fantastic eggs! Our girls enjoyed watching the fireworks from the hot tub which was fantastic and our 2 dogs felt at home. The cottage was well equip very home from home and very very warm. Cant fault it.

The surroundings are perfect for a peaceful holiday and being able to take the dogs and not worry is a bonus . Great area for dogs to run around and a hot tub as an added bonus for us ..fed the chickens and collected the eggs , all in all was lovely and cant say one negative thing .. Book , you won't be disappointed .
August 2014
This was a lovely restful cottage with plenty of room for the dogs to run about. The owners were lovely (even when my dog killed one of their chickens!). The dogs are allowed to sit on settees, go upstairs, whatever they are allowed to do at home which was great as you didn't have to keep worrying about what they were doing. Facilities good, and hot tib lovely.

The Hayloft is a lovely cottage. Matthew, our little grandson, aged 19 months, loved helping the owner feed the geese and chickens. The owners made us feel very welcome and went out of their way to accommodate any requests we might have had. The property was just as described and of an extremely high standard. The hot tub made a fantastic end to the day. Lots of places to visit nearby. A fantastic place!
Mrs Kay

The owner could not have been more welcoming. The cottage was perfect for 2 couples and 2 dogs. The set up made being on holiday with dogs very easy. We loved the cottage, it was very comfortable. The area was lovely; a great area for cycling with quiet, flat roads. We would recommend visiting Gooderstone Watergardens, where we sat and watched a Kingfisher. Also West Acre gardens and nursery which was beautiful.

The grounds were great and we were made welcome.
