East Ruston Cottages

Just how dog friendly is Norfolk?

Short answer:  Very!  Probably one of the most dog friendly counties in the UK.

Being tucked over on the East coast and out of the way of motorways and big cities, Norfolk is a quiet county and that gives us plenty of room for dogs!

Miles and miles and miles of sandy beaches line the coast and just about all of them are either dog friendly year round or only have restrictions at certain times of year in short stretches.  We’re big on open countryside too – lots of open arable farmland and very little in the way of livestock.

The county is criss crossed with paths and bridleways, among them the Weavers Way, Peddars Way, Marriotts Way and others, all running through the quiet Norfolk countryside and perfect for dog walks.  Many of our cafes and pubs genuinely welcome dogs in too – we ‘get’ dog friendly here in Norfolk!
