Dog Friendly

All our cottages are dog-friendly and if you'd like to go out for a while we will happily lend you a dog crate or if you'd prefer we can help find you a local dog sitter. We provide dog towels, dog bowls and, our very popular, 'holiday dog' name tags. Please ask us for the number of dogs we are willing to accept, it really depends on the sizes and also the number of humans they are bringing with them. Our only concern is your comfort in the property.

We are lucky that Norfolk is an incredibly dog-friendly place! There is a page with the 'Top 20' things to do with your dog in North Norfolk.

Nearly all the beaches in Norfolk are dog-friendly with few restrictions. Explore Norfolk has a very good page detailing beaches and any restrictions that they have. I particularly love Brancaster and Holkham beach. The walk to Holkham beach down the sea wall at Burnham Overy is spectacular.

We have an array of Stately Homes to enjoy in Norfolk and all have wonderful parks to explore with your dog. Most have restrictions as there are usually cattle and deer. Explore Norfolk has a great list, Holkham is one of my favourites. Have a look at the 'Insider Guide' section under 'Days out'.

If you'd like to have your dog pampered there is Pretty Paws in Hunstanton 01485 532299 or MaisieMoo's Grooming Parlour in Snettisham 07917 405537.

The Barking Bugle is an online magazine 'Written For Dogs by Dogs – Woofing from North Norfolk', it covers everything dog-friendly from pubs to beaches and local events and fun days out.

Most the pubs in North Norfolk are dog-friendly, but it is worth checking when you are booking a table as some have restrictions as to what area you can sit in. There is a great pub map that shows on its key all the dog-friendly pubs in the area. I would personally recommend the Jolly Sailors in Brancaster Staithe they actively welcome muddy dogs! The White Horse in Brancaster Staithe likes to give your dog treats...
