Guest Offers & Discounts

All the discounts we can offer you as an ERC guest - including boat hire, a dog field, local pubs and more!  


We know how tricky it can be to get your wet, muddy, sandy dogs dried, warm and comfortable after a walk and how it can be a bit more worrying when you are staying in a holiday cottage.  Take that worry away with one of the ultimate dog drying products - a coat, a handy drying gauntlet or a snood.  Or all three?!

All made in the UK and in a whole range of lovely colours, designs and sizes. Our East Ruston Cottages guests get an exclusive 15% discount on all products on the Dog Robes website and they are proving very popular!  The code is in the digital guide which you get 6 weeks before your holiday, meaning you can order one in time for your holiday here in Norfolk.


Simon Rudd Photography

Would you like to take home some amazing holiday memories in the form of professional photos taken during your stay here? Simon Rudd is a local photographer who specialises in dog (and horse) photography.  He is offering our guests a very special deal for a holiday shoot - just £65 for an hour with 4 images included.  (Usually £95/hour with no images so our guests are getting a very good deal!)  They can be either at the beach or at the holiday cottage.  Maybe even in the local woodlands or waterlands.  If the cottage is close to the beach - as so many of ours are - then an hour could cover both the cottage and the beach!  And no limit on number of dogs either.

If you want to take advantage of this memory making opportunity, then just get in touch with Simon and tell him where you are staying and when so you can sort out a date and time!

Martham Paw Ground

  We are delighted to be teamed up with the Norfolk Dog Field of the year - 2023!!  The Martham Paw Ground is very popular with locals and guests wanting to exercise their dogs off lead, securely and on their own.  You can book a slot or slots for your holiday in advance or when you are here and get 10% discount.  The discount code will be sent to you in the digital guide before your arrival.


the raw dog food company

We know how many of you feed raw (we do too!) and for years we have been using the Norwich based Raw Dog Food Company.  They have a really varied selection of raw dog food brands and products - including Nature's Menu, Southcliffe, Naked Dog and Cotswold.  They sell a good selection of treats, supplements and Lickimats too.  They offer all our guests free delivery (Tues - Fri) to the cottages and a minimum order level of just £10.

You can shop directly via our website - RAW DOG FOOD SHOP.



  Dogs + environmentally friendly + seaside!  When we found out about Tanglemission it was immediately obvious that we were made for each other!  They make the most amazing and robust leads - and now bowls too - out of waste fishing nets that are reclaimed from the sea.  These are the cause of much wildlife damage in our seas so to pull them out and turn them into dog leads (and soon adding other products - check the shop here) is fabulous!
