Dog friendly accommodation in Norfolk

One of the best things about dog-friendly accommodation in Norfolk is that it allows you to explore the beautiful countryside and coastal areas with your furry friend by your side.

Whether you prefer long walks on the Norfolk dog friendly beaches or choosing an inland walk, there are plenty of options for you and your dog to enjoy together.

Just imagine, when you’re walking along that wonderful expanse of sandy beach, you won’t have that horrid feeling of “Oh, wouldn’t Harry have loved this….” because you will have brought him along too! 

Well here's a choice of some dog friendly accommodation in Norfolk to suit your requirements.


Bed and Breakfast's

It does go without saying though, that most dog friendly accommodation  will have a few restrictions on where your pet is allowed, particularly in the pubs, but many will allow them to stay in your room and accompany you to the bar area.   In cottages, some owners request that you don't take them upstairs or let them on the furniture -  please respect the owner’s wishes as to where you can and can’t take your beloved pet.

Whether you’re looking for a

there is such a wide choice to choose from it can sometimes become too confusing.  

Let me help you start your dog friendly accommodation search with a very small selection of suggestions that I’ve highlighted here.  I love finding relaxed accommodation, so you'll find these selections all ooze a laid back approach to your pet.   This section of dog friendly accommodation will be growing rapidly, so please do bookmark this page for future use!

Dog Friendly Accommodation

Pet Friendly Pubs and Hotels

There are so many hotels and pubs that welcome dogs in Norfolk, in fact too many to write about here, so for your ease I have chosen a few extremely luxurious dog friendly hotels (sometimes we deserve a bit of luxury!) as well as some fantastic pubs.

Most pubs are naturally more relaxed than the hotels, but they still retain the standards you expect from a hotel accommodation.     Some people feel more at ease in a pub rather than a hotel, so again, I have chosen some incredibly nice  pubs for you and your dog to stay in.
