Yet more fun at the best beach

My name is Mutley, and I belong to the owner of this site. I'm a very pretty Norwich Terrier (male!) and I wanted to be the first dog to submit my favourite Norfolk beach.

Tangle (my mother) and I really loved this beach. The first exciting part was arriving at the huge grassy car park where we couldn’t wait to get started. We had to be put on a lead and we hurriedly made our way down to the soft sandy beach through a rather narrow path. All we could see before us were a few people and miles of wonderfully hard sand that we knew we could run on for ever. Once we got past the sun bathers, we were allowed off our leads and off we went!

It was beautiful, we met a few other dogs which was fun, but we kept going, away from those funny coloured cliffs at Hunstanton towards another beach I believe is called Holme. We didn’t quite get that far as we had to turn around.

We saw a few kite surfers which looked terrifying, and we gave them an occasional bark, just to warn them we were coming (!). On our way back we wanted to carry on to the main beach at Hunstanton, but we were strictly told that this was not a dog walking beach, so we agreed and trotted back to the car.

We really enjoyed this, the sand was lovely and easy to walk on, and we were free!

Dogs on Old Hunstanton Beach
by: Mutleyand Tangle from Explore Norfolk UK

It's so lovely to hear from other dogs who just love the beach so much. It gives everyone, including their owners, such pleasure to see them enjoying themselves in a completely open environment. These beaches are such fantastic spaces to walk on but Old Hunstanton beach seems to be a big favourite with our other four legged friends!!

Great Beach in North Norfolk for dogs
by: Abbi

I am Abbi a 13 yr old German Shepherd Dog - well I will be this week!

My mummy, brother and sisters are going to the beach for my birthday as it is easy for me to get to from the car park, the sand is nice and flat and easy for my old paws to walk on.

I do love this beach as there is so much space. It's also good for my little Jack Russell Terrier sister who has a spinal injury and also finds it hard to walk far, we all paws love this Old Hunstanton beach! Mummy takes us once a month as she loves the beach too. There are the added bonuses of the toilets and cafe in the car park she says.

Meg, I really hope you have a fantastic time. The beaches are such wide open spaces here in Norfolk, you'll be able to run and run, without bumping into anyone! Thank you so much for your kind words about the website, it's a constant work in progress but I hope it gives everyone a lot of information and pleasure!

Can't wait!!!!!
by: Meg

My name is Meg and I am a Brindle Cairn Terrier only 6 months old. I live on the Wirral and my favourite walks are on the beach. This August I will be having my first summer holiday on the North Norfolk Coast and I can't wait to explore the wonderful beaches you have recommended. If you see me please come and say hello so that I can thank you in person for your brilliant website.

Best dog walking beaches for half term
by: Mutley from Explore Norfolk

So glad you think these suggestions are great. I know you won't be disappointed, but I hope the weather stays nice for you. You'll have plenty of open space to walk for miles and miles and also tire the kids out! Have fun!

Old Hunstanton, the perfect dog friendly beach
by: Mutley from Explore Norfolk

Hi Bliss

I'm so glad that you found the article helpful and really hope that you enjoyed your walk there. I think I'd better do some more articles for other beaches! Any excuse for a walk on the beach is great! It's always nice to know how good these beaches really are for dog walking and I note that you didn't want pebbles, so Old Hunstanton beach must have been perfect. I hope you didn't dig too many holes!

I hope the weather was good to you and maybe you ventured into the sea, if the tide wasn't too far out. If we can be of any further help in any way, please don't hesitate to contact us again. It's always nice to hear from fellow dogs!

This comment comes from our excited cocker spaniel
by: Bliss

A very informative page, thank you. My mum is looking for somewhere she & dad can take the children and I for an exciting day out before they go back to school after their long summer holiday and we get back to lovely extra long walks together (when she's not off working p/t to pay my bills!!!). It was very helpful to her because the day out has to suit the children, one of them has disabilities so walking on pebbly beaches is far too tricky, but she also wants it to suit dad (who works super hard all the time and deserves a relaxing day of fun) and not forgetting my very happy, waggy self. Can't wait to explore :-) woof
