This characterful, 1880’s Arts and Crafts property, with a turreted staircase, is one of a row and was once part of a larger house. It was allegedly the home to the mistress of one of the Le Strange family who designed and built the resort of Hunstanton in the 19th century. It has been renovated to provide more bedroom space, open plan living and an additional bathroom. There is a large, spacious, open plan living/dining room and a 17th-century stone fireplace, with a cosy wood burner for those chilly evenings. The house is situated on quiet Boston Square next to the beautiful Sensory Garden, and just a short walk from the cliff top, beach, shops, restaurants, a deli and other amenities. Don’t forget your bucket and spade, as a beach hut is also available by private arrangement with the owners. Shops, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

I don't think it should have a dog friendly status as found it unsuitable for our dog. The sofa was far to low and uncomfortable. The mattress on the superking was very uncomfortable. It doesn't state in description how steep and narrow stairs are. The decking rails are to open to allow a dog out there. Also the steeps down to lower level were more than 4 and unsuitable for a dog.

Not the most dog friendly cottage - otherwise fine
