Highly recommend dawn cottage has everything you need.very dog friendly,close to the beach very much a home from home 👍🏻

Anne & Elaine , 

We have just returned home after a wonderful week at Dawn. I can not fault the cottage its just like being at home our dogs had a fantastic time on the beach and chasing the birds in the garden. There is everything you would need to cook a meal and the fridge/freezer is plenty big enough (not like some we have stayed in). We are hoping to return next year and can not recommend enough.... 10 out of 10 on everything

Jennie Benstead, 

Second year running we have visited "Dawn" and just as impressive as our first visit. Very dog friendly but you would never guess that furry friends stay here apart from the toys, treats and water bowl. The accommodation is spotless and whoever prepares it between visits need a special mention of praise.
The location is perfect, close enough to the beach and plenty of other walks to try. Recommend the Lacon Arms if you do not feel like using the well equipped kitchen.

Paul Adams, 

Fabulous walks and beaches this really is doggy heaven. Property is clean and comfortable and very dog friendly. My Labradors absolutely loved their time here playing in the garden and running into the sea and up and down the dunes. Highly recommend it. Great place to spoil your fur babies!

Christine Gregory, 

What a wonderful place Dawn is, I can't recommend it highly enough. It really is home from home, with the added bonus of wonderful beaches & walks for the dogs. Every detail has been thought of to make your stay comfortable & stress free. Thank you so much, I didn't want to leave x


Thanks Dawn for the use of your lovely cottage which is equipped to a very high standard. Even though it was cold outside it was lovely and cosy inside and there was even an electric blanket on the bed which was very welcome. Our 3 dogs loved it and Sharon even provides “poo” bags. The beach was a few minutes walk either left or right, with miles and miles of sand for the dogs to have fun on and a quick paddle! We often used to walk left when we got to the beach to the cafe on the dunes for a breakfast baguette and a coffee. We definitely highly recommend Dawn Cottage and have already booked for next year.

Returned home a couple of days ago after spending a week here with my husband and 3 dogs, We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The bungalow has everything you need, and so welcoming and relaxing. The locals are really friendly. The beach is a just a couple of minutes walk away, the dogs absolutely loved it, they could run around freely without anyone bothering us. We visited horsey beach on our trip, what a spectacular sight that was, seals playing in the sea and on the beach, loads of them, absolutely wonderful. Would highly recommend Dawn bungalow and Hemsby, so much so, I've booked up again for next year, really can't wait to go back.

Mandy Middleditch, 

Just returned from a great few days at this lovely bungalow. Loved the sea view and the peace and quiet. There was absolutely everything you could possibly need and it was warm and cosy. The dogs were safe in the garden and LOVED the beach. So nice to be able to get to the beach in less than 5 minutes although climbing back up the dunes gave the legs a work out. Saw seals on the beach at Horsey always amazing, got up close and personal with tigers at Felbrigg Hall, had a fantastic meal at the Kings Arms ar Marham and played crazy golf at Hemsby. Altogether a brilliant break. Thanks so much.

Wendy Halling, 

This is a fantastic place to stay in fact it's one of the best places I've ever stayed, quiet and comfy set in lovely surroundings. I was able to take my two small dogs with me who were completely safe in the enclosed garden. There were toys and poo bags provided if you needed them. The beach was just minutes walk away. I would definately recommend this to anyone looking for a perfect stay. We will be returning very soon.


We just had an amazing long weekend away and returned feeling refreshed, Dawn is an amazing place to stay at it was so comfy! A home away from home for sure. It was nice and easy to hook and I'm already looking at returning next year. Don't even think twice about it hit the book button now!


We have returned home from spending a week At Dawn and can honestly say it was one of the most restful weeks we have spent in Norfolk. The bungalow has absolutely everything you need for comfort and the situation is excellent - so close to the beach. Highly recommneded.

Helen Aiken, 

Just got back from spending a lovely week at Dawn, it has everything you need for a wonderful relaxing holiday. The views are great and the beach is excellent for all. Dawn is extremely dog friendly and the valley is great for dog walking.

Jane Smith, 

had an absolutely fab time at dawn in july, weather was great but even if it wasn't wasn't it would have been lovely, beach very close although we spent most of the time down the road in winterton, fab café and straight on the beach or in the dunes, the cottage is amazing x very well decorated and maintained and the owner is very approachable, was like a home from, home, everything you need is with in walking distance, we had a great time, only problem we had was it was too short

yvette curtis, 

Had a great time, so much so that we have booked again for next June.


Would highly recommend if you are looking for a holiday home where you can go with your dog. It is very clean and has everything you need to make your stay perfect.


Just wanted to say that we thought Dawn was a beautiful bungalow and we really enjoyed staying there. The garden was ideal for the dogs and the beach was close enough for our older dog who doesn't like to walk far. Everything we needed was supplied and we would like to return. Wehad a very chilled out time and returned home refreshed.


Had a great time at Dawn. Very impressed with the accommodation. Have re-booked for two weeks next summer.


What at fantastic place to go for a break and also be able to take your dogs with you. We have just arrived back after a long weekend at Dawn, such a cozy inviting place to stay and the beach on your doorstep. Everything catered for, the small personal touch things to. Dogs are shattered, we spent most of the time walking with them. Although TV are available to watch we had a nice relaxing weekend without any TV, plenty of places to eat out. Just fantastic and would highly recommend.

Wendy Bonnick, 

5* We stayed here last week and had a fantastic stay. Dawn is a beautiful cottage, very clean, warm and homely. It has a very secure garden which is brilliant for dogs. I would recommend staying here to friends and family


Absolutely brilliant,we are on our last night here which is the only disappointing thing I can say, dog's have loved it as much as us,beautifully decorated and so much love and hard work has gone into dawn the information book was a pleasure to read. Will be rebooking for a week next year as soon as we can sort dates.

Kerry wild, 

Wonderful! Dawn is a delight. The sun is shining and the beach is wonderful.


Would like to say that "Dawn" is totally gorgeous. It had everything we needed and was very dog friendly. You provided everything we could need and we would definitely visit again. Your hard work has certainly paid off

Lisa Stone, 

Hi Sharon,
Just wanted to let you know that we had a great stay at Dawn.
It was everything that we wanted it to be… really dog friendly and easy to get to the shops/beach.
The weather was also better than the forecast for almost all of our stay so we got out and about every day.
You can tell how much we enjoyed it because we’ve got home and Maddie is sulking.
This morning she was running into the sea chasing one of your balls, now she is back home and not a happy bunny!
We’ll look at your calendar to see when we can some back again...
Thanks again.

Peter, Elaine, 

What an absolute little gem , loved it , can I book 2 other week ends please out of season.


My sister and I have just returned from our stay at 'Dawn' in Hemsby, we have had a lovely weekend. 'Dawn' was so well equipped that we wanted for nothing, most importantly it was spotlessly clean!
Although temperatures were well below freezing on a couple of nights we were very comfortable and cosy. After days out it was so nice to go back to the home comforts that were provided, a nice hot bath or shower, reclining sofas, large screen TV (both in lounge and bedrooms), an extremely well equipped kitchen with slow cooker, dishwasher, microwave, fridge/freezer and lots more quality kitchen wares and super comfy beds too. I really could go on, but we honestly didn't want for anything at all! Sharon made everything so simple for us, with clear details of where to find everything and easy access to all the operating instructions for all the appliances. It was great not to have to worry about transporting towels and bed linen, all of which were provided and again all were good quality and very clean.
'Dawn' offers quick and easy access to the very beautiful Hemsby beach, I was truly impressed with this beautiful beach and marvelled at being able to take a morning stroll in such a beautiful place so easily. The location was great, we took a trip to Great Yarmouth which was just 7 miles away in the car and also visited Horsey Beach to see the seals which was a fabulous experience and just 5 minutes away.
A thoroughly enjoyable stay.....thank you Sharon, your hard work shows and it is a credit to you. :-)

Jayne Clamp, 

Just back from a lovely break staying at "dawn". Such a lovely, cosy bungalow which is so dog friendly for me and my two cockerpoos. Thank you, I will be booking again very soon
