Head to the Norfolk coast and you’ll find plenty to do with your pet on this memorable holiday. There are coastal walking routes of different lengths that you can all enjoy together. Dunes can be found at the back of some stretches, home to wildlife, it’s a good place to spot rare birds. If you like kiss-me-quick hats and sticks of rock, head for Great Yarmouth or Caister where there are lots of family-friendly things to do. If you prefer candy-coloured beach huts and artisan shops, then Wells-next-the-Sea is the place for you.
The best places to stay in Norfolk are scattered around this county and allow you to search some famous estates. Sandringham in Norfolk is the Queen’s country estate, and you can tour the house and gardens in the summer months. Doggies can’t go inside, but they are welcome to walk in the extensive grounds that are just glorious to see. Holkham Hall, a lived in country pile, is open to visitors May to October and they organise events such as open-air concerts throughout the year.
Horning, in the Norfolk Broads
, is a delightful village where you can board a paddle steamer and take a tour of the water. See the stunning homes along the route and learn about the history of the reed beds. There are a couple of waterside pubs here that serve slap up lunches and cold drinks, with water bowls outside for the dogs.
