Our self catering cottages are pretty, traditionally built and set within the grounds of Church Farm. Finished to an extremely high standard and well equipped we can offer 4 holiday cottages. Church Fields is our 3 bedroom cottage, with a kingsize bedroom and master en-suite shower room, a double bedroom and a single bedroom with a trundle bed. There is also a family bathroom with an over the bath shower. Lighthouse Cottage is our 2 bedroom cottage, perfect for couples, 1 double bedroom with an en-suite shower room and a twin bedroom with an en-suite shower room. Oak Cottage is another 2 bedroom cottage but better suited for families, it has a double, a twin and a large family bathroom with an over the bath shower. Each of these cottages benefit from their own courtyards with access to a communal garden. Finally our newest cottage, our stunning 1 king size bedroom, 1 bathroom cottage, The Forge is hugely popular for couples looking for that relaxing honeymoon feel. All of our cottages can use are large enclosed field AND our newly installed heated doggy shower to wash away any muddy paws.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have just returned from another fabulous stay at Oaktree Cottages. This time we stayed in The Forge. Our first impression when we opened the door was how clean and fresh the cottage was. Lauren and her Mum really do make sure that everything is spotless and you would never know the accommodation is totally dog friendly. The attention to detail and finishing touches are first class, from the well stocked kitchen area that has everything you need to the amazing welcome hamper on arrival. The Forge is decorated in a modern style yet is comfy and homely. Little touches like roller blind pelmet boards shows they consider how everything looks. Now to the welcome packs...both human and doggy! Amazing selection of local produce. Everything you need (including a bottle of wine) to enjoy your first night and morning without having to rush out to the shops. Our fur babies loved the Norfolk handmade cheese bones and jar of biscuit treats! There's also an ID tag for each dog, which is a great idea, and an enclosed field with a lovely seating area and hot doggy shower to rinse off muddy paws. You can really tell Lauren and her family have put a lot of thought, love and care in to making your stay in one of their beautiful cottages totally stress free and relaxing.

Christmas won't be the same again! I made the decision to book The Forge and get away for Christmas in 2023, just me and my dog and it was the best decision ever. First impressions far exceeded what I was expecting. My dog settled in very quickly and enjoyed the very large welcome package (as did I, enjoyed my welcome package). Extremely clean and comfortable and the Christmas tree made it even cosier. I needed some help with the log burner and the hosts couldn't have been more helpful, coming over to give me a lesson! A lovely enclosed garden as well as an enclosed field to allow the dogs to exercise/play. When they say dog friendly, they mean 100% dog friendly and not just dogs are allowed. You can sense the owners passion for dogs (and guests!). The location was amazing, so close to some incredible dog friendly beaches. Not an area I have explored before but will definitely be returning. I have been recommending Oat Tree Cottages to everyone and know that two friends have booked stays in March and Sept so I'd best look at availability before the year is booked up!

We had an amazing stay in Church Fields Cottage over the Christmas period. The cottage was spotless. Considering how dog friendly they are there was not a dog hair to be seen when we arrived. We were greeted with a wonderful welcome package for us and the pooches. The cottage was also very festive with a Christmas tree and decorations. Facilities provided were amazing. We had everything we needed and more. I would thoroughly recommend Oak Tree Cottages. We will definitely be returning! It made our Christmas.

Another fabulous stay at Oak Tree Cottages. They are truly doggie friendly. Not only are their cottages well equipped with everything you would need for a self-catering break, your dogs are well looked after too with bowls, treats, towel for muddy paws, as well as a bed and crate to use during your stay save you taking your own. There is also a secure exercise field and a hot shower for washing off those muddy or sandy paws. We had such a great time we have already booked for next year!

This was our second visit to Oak Tree Cottages & it will not be our last. If you want somewhere special to holiday with your dog/s, this is the place! Thoughtful & helpful owners, clean & comfortable accommodation, everything you & your dog could wish for is provided. Super dog friendly surroundings plus a great location for dog walks on the lovely beaches nearby. Thank you again. We will be back!

Such a dog and human friendly cottage. Welcome packs for dogs and humans were excellent, our dogs loved all the toys. The beds were so comfortable we have ordered the same pillows. The dog field was an excellent place for the dogs to let off steam. The cottage had everything you could possibly need, although we didn’t do much cooking as there were so many dog friendly pubs, cafes and restaurants in the area

Oak Tree Cottages are the best ever cottages you could stay at. They have 4 cottages and over our (I believe) 7 times we have stayed there we have holidayed in 3 of them. The cottages have everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Our dog has been every time with us and it's now a second home for him. You should have seen his tail wagging when we arrived. It's a home for him he just relaxes . We have already booked forJuly 2024 and if we can manage a few days before the end of the year we will be there.
