A pet friendly brick and flint cottage in the heart of Happisburgh on the Norfolk coast. The Gig House is perfect for summer breaks or winter escapes alike and is ideally located just 10 minutes from a glorious sandy beach.

El lugar

The Gig House sleeps:
2 adults and a baby/toddler.

We welcome pets - up to 2 large or medium dogs or 3 small dogs, 2 cats and any pet in a cage - and charge £25 per dog or cat per visit.

We live across the courtyard and, hopefully, will be there to welcome you and to deal with any questions or requests at any time during your stay.

It is located in one of Norfolk's most picturesque coastal villages. The village itself is now famous for the oldest evidence of human activity outside of Africa with footprints discovered on the beach to be over 900 thousand years old.

The cosy local pub, within 50 yards of the cottage, echoes the local connection with Sherlock Holmes author Arthur Conan Doyle who visited many times and wrote one of the detective mysteries here.

There is also a small shop and post office in the village.

In fact the local villagers will proudly boast of the number of other illustratrious visitors who have been drawn to this unique place from Robinson Cruso author Daniel Defoe, cricketer W.C. Grace, sculptors Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth, poet John Betjeman, writer PD James and even the Queen Mother once arriving by helocopter to visit a cousin who lived in the village.

The village is a must for those who enjoy the English countryside and its beaches in all seasons.

Parking is in the courtyard or on the very quiet lane outside the house. Bus stop 20 m from Albion Cottage but with an infrequent country service.
Train station 7 miles away.

All week long bookings start on a Saturday and short breaks start on a Monday or Friday, except at Christmas. We do not accept short breaks (less than a week) at peak times (school holidays). Out of season we can be more flexible with length of stay and start day.

If you have a larger party this property can be booked in conjunction with Albion Cottage at a special rate (property also on Airbnb).

Liz was very welcoming & we thoroughly enjoyed the cream tea she left for us on arrival. The flowers & pint of milk were thoughtful touches. She offered good tips of things to do locally which meant we were able to use our time well. The Gig House is very comfortable and allows you to relax easily. It is very well equipped. A comfy bed with lovely linen ensures a good nights' sleep. Netflix was a real treat!!! Our 2 dogs also enjoyed their stay and were made to feel very welcome. Thank you Liz.

Really enjoyed and would return. Really comfortable and loved the extra touches like Netflix, fresh coffee beans and grinder, and scones and jam on arrival.

The cottage is welcoming and thoughtfully equipped - fresh flowers in a vase and a cream tea waiting on the table when we arrived were a lovely touch. We had all we needed provided for us (small things, like salt and pepper, cooking oil and ketchups etc which are a nuisance to have to buy or bring from home). The cottage was warm and cosy and tastefully decorated. The addition of Netflix was a bonus! Cliff and beach walks are on the doorstep which meant that we didn't have to use the car for an evening stroll. We would definitely stay there again.

We had such a wonderful time at Gig House we decided to extend our stay. The place is beautiful, comfortable, quiet and charming. Pretty, pleasant little courtyard, Netflix, wifi and cliff and country walks from the door. The pub is only a minute's walk away but is not close enough to be noisy - in fact the beer festival was on while we were there and it didn't disturb us at all. Food in pub is so-so but friendly staff. Beach is about a 10 minute walk away with seals and sand. There is a small shop in the village but erratic opening times so is best to stock up elsewhere. Definitely going back to Gig House.

The gig house was a superb place to stay. Beautiful accommodation in stunning scenery. Feel fully relaxed, just sad it's over. Thanks very much, Liz.

This was the second time we've stayed at the Gig House, and again we weren't disappointed. This time we took our whippet along too, abs he had a great time running around on the endless local beaches. Thanks for another great stay!
