Pet Friendly Holiday Cottages

Boarding up a pet or getting a pet sitter while you go on your holiday can be expensive, that’s why Kett Country Cottages offer a number of cottages that accommodate pet owners. While some properties are dog specific, many of our cottages allow pets of all species, from cats to caged birds, with the owner’s approval.

Norfolk has dozens of Dog Friendly Beaches like Brancaster, Thornham and Holkham. Not only is Norfolk blessed with miles of beaches we are also lucky to have many Dog Friendly Pubs. What could be better than a walk on the beach followed by some greayt pub lunch. At Kett Country Cottages we normally have approximately 100 or more holiday homes available to book that are happy to accommodate a well behaved dog / family pet.

Eating and drinking with your dog

One of our dedicated Kett visitors unselfishly conducted an in-depth study of dog-friendly pubs along the North Norfolk coast, and reported back that The Ship Inn at Brancaster was the best.  But to be fair, the vast majority of pubs in the area, however smart they may appear, will welcome dogs.  It is very usual to see dog water bowls inside and out cafes and pubs.

The Orange Tree at Thornham goes so far as to produce a menu especially for dogs, which includes delicacies such as pigs' ears washed down with gravy and probiotic salmon.

The Beach Cafe on the Beach Road at Wells Next the Sea has a special 'K9 Club', with dog refreshment available.

And should you run out of dog treats, many of the local farm shops sell home-baked dog biscuits.

Walking your Dog

Basically, most of the North Norfolk area is a rabbit-infested dog paradise, and if it isn't rabbits it's sea gulls or crabs.  Your dog will love it wherever you go, but here are some of our favourites:

Sheringham Park - a wooded valley with paths leading down to grassland surrounding Sheringham Hall, has been highlighted as being particularly good dog-walking territory.  For your dog, a pleasing mixture of wood and field, and for you, wonderful views to the sea, with the chance of seeing the steam train on its way to Weybourne.

Wells to Holkham - Catch the steam train from Wells town to the beach and then walk along the beach and through the dunes to Holkham.  You could walk back, but we suggest you catch the Coast Hopper bus (also completely dog friendly).

The Coastal Path - this is 42 miles long, so doing the whole thing may be a little ambitious, but there are shorter, circular walks which take in sections of the path, detailed in the Norfolk County Council website.  The one near Salthouse Marsh is particularly good.  Maybe a trip to the Dunn Cow pub afterwards?

The Best Dog Friendly Beaches in Norfolk

Norfolk understands and welcomes dogs.  And so it should, as it has everything a dog could possibly want - miles of sandy beaches and acres of woodland to enjoy.  Even the Romans were kind enough to build Peddars Way, which must only be an excuse for the longest dog walk ever.  And then there's the Coastal Path - canine paradise.

So just to get you started, here are a few pointers to the dog county of Norfolk:

Beaches without dog restrictions:

Old Hunstanton                   Brancaster Staithe            Holkham
Holme                                Snettisham                       Winterton
Thornham                           Heacham                          Happisburgh

And a few of our personal favourites:

Holkham Beach: Mile upon mile of sandy beach, and as an added bonus there are dunes and pinewoods.  Incredibly interesting to dogs, particularly those with selective hearing.

Brancaster Beach: Awarded 5* by the Good Dog Guide.  There are some restrictions on taking your dog near certain sections of the golf course between May and September, but for the most part the vast stretch of beach is open to dogs.  And you will meet a very good class of pooch down there.

Happisburgh: After having marvelled at the famous lighthouse, you can walk uninterrupted and undisturbed all the way to Sea Palling - and there are not restrictions for dogs!
