Cottage Details

Bear’s Cottage is a dog-friendly rural retreat sitting in 200 acres of private woodland. The property was lovingly restored in 2016 and has retained its historic charm while offering modern comforts.

Up to three well-behaved dogs are welcome, and there is off-road parking for several cars. Sorry, no smoking is allowed at the property.


Renovated and decorated to an exceptional standard, this delightful property offers the perfect country getaway. The old stables have been painstakingly renovated into a spacious kitchen and open-plan living space.

The kitchen is well-equipped, with a range gas cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. The living area is comfortable and spacious, boasting vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and wooden floor. Relax in front of the television with Sky TV and DVD player. You’ll find a cosy snug at the front of the house, complete with wood burner.

There are four bedrooms: two king-size with wash basins, and two twins (one on the ground floor). A family bathroom is on the first floor, complete with freestanding claw-footed bath, and a separate shower room can be found on the ground floor. There is also an en-suite bathroom in the ground floor bedroom.

Free WiFi is available for guest use.


The wide bi-fold doors from the dining area open out onto the south-facing patio and private garden, bringing the outside in. Enjoy an evening meal on the charcoal barbecue, relaxing on the garden furniture while your dogs explore the garden.

Location and surrounding area

The pretty village of Wood Norton has a thriving local community and is not far from the beautiful North Norfolk coast.

Just two miles from Bear’s Cottage you’ll find local shops and a pub in Foulsham village, and six miles away is the market town of Fakenham. There are plenty more towns to explore just a short drive away, including Holt with its independent shops, art galleries and eateries, the market town of Aylsham and the harbour town of Blakeney.

Blakeney Nature Reserve is just 20 minutes away by car and England’s largest seal colony can be found at Blakeney Point. There are also two fascinating National Trust properties nearby, Blickling Hall and Felbrigg Hall.

If you enjoy cycling, this is a great way to discover the area, and if you aren’t able to bring your own bikes, there are many places offering bicycle hire in the region.
