Happisburgh

Dog friendliness:  10/10 Really good. Lots of beach.

Restrictions: 1st May – 1st October there are supposedly restrictions for dogs on the beach but in reality these are not enforced and locals and visitors use the beach all year round.

Access:  Sand slope down from the car park. This does suffer from the weather/sea and can get damaged and closed from time to time but the council work hard to keep it open.

Facilities:  Pay and display car park, toilets. The village also has the very dog friendly Hill House pub, small shop/post office and a really good fresh fish shop a little way inland – very worth a visit!

Nearest to:  A short walk from White Cottage, The Crib and Heather Cottage.  A longer one from Corner Cottage, Victoria Cottage and The Walnut all in Happisburgh Common. 

What the locals know: Happisburgh is a great place to view from high up – both the iconic lighthouse and the church have open days where you can climb to the top.  The village has a lot of interesting history and the village is ancient, falling into the sea in parts but still a thriving community.  There have been some regular and amazing prehistoric finds so if you are interested in dinosaur bones and mammoth teeth, hand axes and fossils of all sorts keep your eyes peeled!!

When the tide is out you can walk from this beach to Walcott…
