From our seaside chalet, through barn conversions, small and large, cottages in the countryside and on to our huge seaside family houses, we have something for everyone and for all your dogs too! Sleeping 2 to 12. All of them have properly enclosed outside areas, dogs are allowed on the sofas, no silly rules, dog bowls provided, crates, stairgates and a genuine welcome provided. 

We don't charge for dogs EVER, many of our properties are happy with UNLIMITED (yes, unlimited!) dogs and the others are very happy with 4 and more! But please don't think they are 'doggy' - far from it, they are loved and looked after and many are home from home for their owners.

All our properties are in rural and coastal Norfolk, the quiet coastal bit between Cromer and Caister, just on the edge of the Norfolk Broads too. Lots and lots of sandy beaches to run on all year round. Plenty of dog friendly pubs and cafes to visit. Take a boat out, with your dogs, on the wonderful Norfolk Broads. 

You can come for a week or for a short break. Relax in our lovely houses or go out every day to explore the wonderful, dog friendly Norfolk coast and countryside. Relax knowing that you and your dogs are very, very welcome.

And we're not a faceless agency - you will always get me, Sue Allen, to speak to or email. I have lived here for over 30 years, know all of my houses really well and the area too. I have 2 dogs of my own. I have holidayed all around the UK with them and genuinely think that Norfolk is one of THE most dog friendly areas in the country. I hope you can come and found that out too!

Excellent cottages- you know they all meet the standard. Take as many dogs as you want and none of this “keep dogs downstairs off the furniture “ business. The dogs are as catered for as humans are.

Sally Hickinson, October 2021

I love the fact that east rushton cottages always put everyone’s dogs first, it’s rare to get a holiday cottage that will accept pets let alone 8 dogs or more! Sue is fantastic and makes every holiday personal so you do not feel like just a number. Nothing is too much trouble and you always get a prompt response to any queries.
