Eating Out In Norfolk  - a whole website dedicated to finding good places to eat in Norfolk with a really good postcode based search function.

 

Truly Local  We love this shop in Stalham (the little shop with big ideals!) and increasing numbers of our guests do too. 

It sells only produce and goods from within a 35 mile radius of the shop (and much of it is way closer than that)  Better still it is a not for profit social enterprise shop so the directors don't take any remuneration, shares or bonuses and all the proceeds go back into the local community.  That's the very worthy bit!  The other good bit is that the stuff they sell there is fab!!  And they offer 10% discount to East Ruston Cottages guests!

 

Cooks Farm Shop at Sea Palling has a great selection of locally grown veg, bread, eggs etc and LOADS of pickles and jams.  A great place to visit on your way back to any of the cottages from Sea Palling beach.  Just a bit further down the same road is Causeway Butchers - another great local supplier for all sorts of fresh and cured meats and pies.

 

 

OTHER HOLIDAY PLACES WE CAN RECOMMEND

 

More dog friendly accommodation can be found here in the heart of Derbyshire.  We have stayed at The Old Piggery and it is lovely!  They also very kindly allowed us to copy the idea of their 'dog page'.  They are very nice people and Tideswell is a great place, great for foodies.  The Old Piggery, Tideswell

 

Keeping the Derbyshire link we also very much like Caudwells Mill Craft Centre which is in Bakewell (near Tideswell) and allows dogs into the cafe.  In a seamless further link the owners of the craft centre also have two other dog friendly properties - Grace Cottages - to let in Dorset and Scotland.  They aso own Milestone Barn at Gimmingham available via this website!  They support Many Tears rescue by giving them 10% of the rental income. What lovely people!

 

Super dog friendly accommodation in Devon run by a guest of ours.. Pawprints

RECOMMENDED WEBSITES/ORGANISATIONS

 

One of our regular and favourite guests who has brought her teaching dogs to stay twice a year since we started but now has her own property here, White Cottage.  Back at hime in Surrey she runs Dog Communication workshops.  We have been with our dogs and learnt a lot!  Dog Communication

 

And she takes great photos too, including many of them on this site!   She specialises in dogs and family photos but can turn her hand to most subjects.  See her work here.....Penel Malby Photography

 

We are fans of this local photographer too.  He takes the most beautiful images from around the county and has taken the website photographs of many of our properties  We are hoping to have his images on canvases in the big barn when complete.  Stephen Mole Photography

 

This lady has had the fab idea of making temporary collars for holidays - they last about 6 weeks and are waterproof.  You use them in addition to your dog's normal collar and you can put your holiday contact numbers on them.  Wish I'd thought of that!!  HolCols.
