Your dog will love a cottage holiday in Sheringham
Once a simple fishing village, Sheringham has blossomed into a popular holiday hotspot while still retaining much of its original character. Book one of our dog-friendly cottages in Sheringham and you and your pooch will have access to some of the UK's best beaches and breath-taking scenery right on your doorstep. Why go through all the stress of sending your four-legged friend off to a kennel when he can come with you?
If you're looking for a family-friendly beach where your pooch is as welcome as you are, you won't have far to travel from our dog-friendly cottages in Sheringham. For bracing walks, fireside drinks and cosy evenings, book your break between September and May when Sheringham Beach is open for dogs to run off the leash. Those looking for the summer sun will have to travel slightly further afield; Cley Beach is just 15 minutes away and there are no summer restrictions for dog owners.
You'll find some fantastic pubs, cafés and restaurants that welcome dogs and their owners. The Lobster Pub is a proper beers-and-beams, old-school watering hole, where you can enjoy home-cooked food and a quiet drink. Dogs are welcome and there are doggie treats behind the bar. For a post-walk lunch, it doesn't get much better than the Whelk Coppers café, where you can enjoy homemade sausage rolls, sandwiches and cakes. There are towels outside for mucky pups and well-behaved dogs are sneaked treats by the attentive staff.
Dog-friendly things to do
Sheringham makes an excellent base from which to explore the sights and sounds (and scents) of North Norfolk. You'll find outstanding walks, historic buildings and some fantastic scenery. For those who've never been before, we've put together a few of our favourite dog-friendly attractions:
Holt Country Park
Less than 20 minutes' drive from Sheringham, Holt Country Park is a superb place for some off-the-leash romps. With pine forests and designated dog walks, it's an easy way to spend a day with the whole family. Be aware that there are wild ponies and other free-roaming livestock, so you may need to pop the lead on occasionally.
Sheringham Park is ideal for those who want to combine a walk with the best of British scenery. There are almost 1000 acres to explore, so you might find you keep coming back! With exceptional views of the North Norfolk Coast, this is the fastest way to slow down.
An impressive stately home, you'll find Holkham Hall about 45 minutes from Sheringham. With expansive woodlands and a nearby beach, it's a great day out for the whole family. Be aware that your dog will need to be on a lead in certain parts of the grounds.
